C.M. Estopare
Publication date: June 30th 2017
Genres: Adult, Fantasy
To defy gods, she will sacrifice all.
After the death of its duchess, Safrana is in turmoil. Two equally powerful families vie for power, quickly turning the beautiful citadels of Safrana into a hellish warscape. While, on the outside, there is a desperate search for the one true heir to the throne. The one man who could stop an encroaching civil war and force the citadels into peace.
But he is no where to be found. Presumed dead. While a threatening war looms over Safrana, promising to tear it apart.
Thrust into a political world which only buys and sells in blood money, with an impending civil war at hand, Marceline Brandy is called to take charge of a peace effort in a foreign city. But nothing is certain in this world rife with political strife. Everything must be questioned, even a push for peace.
Desperate to complete her mission, Marceline soon finds herself tangled up in the strange political affairs of an arrogant woman with dangerous ties to the long lost heir of the Safranian throne. But there is another, more powerful presence that lurks on the borders of Safrana’s imploding government. A presence that would stop at nothing to see Marceline and her allies fail.
Seized by a foreign city she is sworn to save, she has few to turn to for help. The list of allies she could count on is cut short by corrupt patriotists hungry for war and livid at the mere notion of foreign driven peace. Months pass as Marceline heads this peace effort, but the fiercer she works the more dire the situation becomes and time is running out.
A war looms, one that promises to destroy Safrana, as mythological creatures rise from ancient graves. The fiends intent on absolute destruction.
Is this an all-out test of Marceline’s strength and will?
Or, are the gods themselves against her?

Stolas by Randi Cooley Wilson was an amazing read! There were so much stuff in this book that will make you want more. I didn't want this book to end. The love that was brewing over between Hope and Stone had me going all over the place. I wanted them to date, to be together even though I know they couldn't. Well in Stolas's eyes they couldn't, but there is always a way around it. He just hasn't found it yet.

Stolas is about a girl named Hope and a guy named Stolas. All her life she thought she was mentally ill. She could see things no one else could see. She was put in a place called Shadowbrook, a home for the mentally ill. While there she met a girl named Avi who claimed she was the daughter of Lilith and her roomie Lore. Then she went on to meet Lev and Vassago. She thought they were just as crazy as she was. One night she was out after curfew and was walking outside when she saw this guy sitting there in the cold and snow. He disappeared and reappeared to her in the piano room. There on her whole entire world turned upside down. Stolas is the prince of the Nine Circles, the son of Lucifer. His mission was to bring Hope, who is an oracle to join the dark souls. Well he does just that. But she still doesn't believe him. She still thinks she is mentally ill and that she was kidnapped. It took a while for her to believe. But once she actually did her feelings for Stolas grew and the feelings for Hope grew. But Stolas knew better, she was a human, and he was a demon. There was no being together. But she wants to save him, so she will do everything in her power to be with him.

The book was amazing. The characters were amazing. Stolas was a huge huge ass, but he is a prince of hell and a demon so I can completely understand. There were parts of the book where I was scared for Hope. But she is a strong women and she stuck it out and didn't back down. The bad thing about this book was the ending. I am definitely not going to spoiled that for anyone who wants to read the book. But the ending had me throwing a fit. Still an amazing book and I cannot wait for the second one.
