My heart broke a little reading this. Allie is such an inspiration and I admire her so much for writing such an honest and raw post.
Trigger warning: schizophrenia and suicide
I hate the 4thof July, I’m sorry, but I do, I hate it.
I have had pets all my life—they have served as my companions and my therapy for as long as I can remember—and every year I dread this day. When there will be loud noises in the sky that will terrify my animals, and me.
I have paranoid schizophrenia. Loud noises are very difficult for me; they always have been. My stepfather used to scream at my mother, and that’s part of it. The other part is that as someone who visually and audibly hallucinates, surprise noises scare me because I don’t always know if other people can hear them, or it’s just me. I can go to concerts, because I’m expecting it to be loud. Same thing with car races, but I will admit when the cars backfires I panic…

Emilia Daarke has wanted to escape the Summer Court her entire life. She’s not brutal like the other Fae. She’s not savage. But they are.
When the boy she loves, Cade Vasara, Crowned Prince of the Winter Court, kills Emilia’s twin, they are torn apart and Emilia’s love for Cade dies just like her sibling did.
Years later, she has fallen in love with a hunter – a forbidden love that goes against all that she has been taught. A man her father will never approve of. When her secret is outed, her father captures her Hunter and gives Emilia an ultimatum.
If she succeeds, she’ll lose the one she loves. But if she fails, he will die, and she will never be able to forgive herself…
This is the first book I’ve ever read of Sloane’s. It’s the mention of the fae that drew me in! And I wasn’t disappointed! Whew what a page turner that was! I love the writing style, it was so easy to get into. I love the chemistry between both Emilia and Oberon, and Emilia and Cade. I was actually torn about who I wanted to ship her with. I love how gory and dark it was in some places and how heated things got in others! I REALLY enjoyed the twists; and that cliff hanger at the end? Oh. My. God! I was about 90% through reading when I had an inkling that a certain character would turn. I’m a bit gutted though, I really liked them! A part of me is hoping it’s all some kind of act. Speaking of characters, I didn’t warm to Lex. He’s definitely one shady dude! However, maybe I’ll be surprised in the next book and he actually turns out good? Who knows? But I’m dying to find out what happens!
Book two, A King’s Oath, will be released in December.

Happy Monday! I made my own oat milk today after seeing A Virtual Vegan’s recipe for it. It was really simple to make. There’s a few tweaks I need to make next time but for a first attempt, it’s not bad at all.
I’m actually really proud of myself. It’s currently chilling in the fridge in its lovely Kilner milk bottle. I need to buy me another one of these bottles for sure; they’re so cute!
