Hey there readers! I hope everyone is doing well. Boy, this month there wasn’t much of a challenge. All except 1 novel got between 20 -50 votes while the winning title blew them out the water with 527 votes! Honestly, I was expecting a much closer race with some of these titles but that simply was not the case. So let me present to you this month’s Book of the Month winner! Let’s give a round of applause to We Rule the Night by Claire Eliza Bartlett. Check out below what it’s all about and remember to stay tuned for May’s Book of the Month Poll. Happy reading!
Two girls use forbidden magic to fly and fight–for their country and for themselves–in this riveting debut that’s part Shadow and Bone, part Code Name Verity.
Seventeen-year-old Revna is a factory worker, manufacturing war machines for the Union of the North. When she’s caught using illegal magic, she fears being branded a traitor and imprisoned. Meanwhile, on the front lines, Linné defied her father, a Union general, and disguised herself as a boy to join the army. They’re both offered a reprieve from punishment if they use their magic in a special women’s military flight unit and undertake terrifying, deadly missions under cover of darkness. Revna and Linné can hardly stand to be in the same cockpit, but if they can’t fly together, and if they can’t find a way to fly well, the enemy’s superior firepower will destroy them–if they don’t destroy each other first.
We Rule the Night is a powerful story about sacrifice, complicated friendships, and survival despite impossible odds.
