Wednesday Wishlist #23 - Fantasy Edition

This week I've gone all fantasy on you:

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

The first book in a YA fantasy trilogy, where a world is divided by blood. The Silvers are the ruling class, and they are elite warriors with god-like powers. The Reds are commoners, poverty-stricken and powerless. That is, until Mare Barrow discovers that despite her red blood, she also has a talent, and that could destroy Silver control. Doesn't that just sound awesome?

Illusions of Fate - Kiersten White

A historical fantasy YA where an outcast girl is introduced to the Albion court, where she is enchanted by the power, money status and magic that suddenly surrounds her. A gorgeous young lord rounds off the romance, and also introduces some much-needed danger as his skeletons are slowly prised from the cupboard by an evil Lord. Oh, I love a bit of magic mixed with period drama!

Shadow and Bone - Leigh Bardugo

Everyone seems to have read this but me! It's an epic fantasy with a war-ravaged world and one girl who discovers a new ability and is thrust into a life training to be a Grisha, one of the magical elite of that world.
