This is probably unprofessional or something, but I couldn’t not say something – I just got my first book sent to me by Entangled Teen for review! It was so long ago that I was contacted by them that I completely forgot and so it was such a nice surprise to get this in the mail. It is a finished copy of Seventh Born by Monica Sanz, which comes out September 4th, 2018. It is sounds pretty intriguing, like a mixture of The Queen’s Rising and Vampire Academy (minus the vampires), with lots of mystery as well. I can’t say for sure if those comparisons are accurate, but I will hopefully let you know once I read it!
Abomination. Curse. Murderer. All names hurled at eighteen-year-old Seraphina Dovetail. As the seventh-born daughter to a witch, she’s the cause of her mother losing her powers and, in turn, her life.
Abandoned as a child, Sera dreams of becoming an inspector and finding her family. To do that, she must be referred into the Advanced Studies Program at the Aetherium’s Witchling Academy. Her birth order, quick temper, and tendency to set things on fire, however, have left her an outcast with failing marks…and just what Professor Nikolai Barrington is looking for.
The tall, brooding, yet exceedingly handsome young professor makes her a proposition: become his assistant and he’ll give her the referral she needs. Sera is quickly thrust into a world where witches are being kidnapped, bodies are raised from the dead, and someone is burning seventhborns alive. As Sera and Barrington grow ever closer, she’ll discover that some secrets are best left buried…and fire isn’t the only thing that makes a witch burn.
So, what do you think? Does it sound like something you would pick up to read?
