You guys voted once again and chose Jenn Bennett’s YA fantasy adventure, The Lady Rogue as our pick for May!
It’s described as a “swashbuckling historical fantasy adventure” and “Indiana Jones with a female lead”. There’s magic, romance and an epic game of cat and mouse across Europe! We are SO excited to read this, especially since it comes with the most beautiful map!
Synopsis below if you are interested:
Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé (and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life) Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul.
Until Huck returns from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler—more widely known as Dracula—and that it just might be the key to finding him.
Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths (including murder) to possess it.
I think we can all agree….it sounds SOOOOO GOOD!
