Happy Book Birthday to the following new releases:
- Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan (June 11, 2019)
- Rise (Rule #2) by Ellen Goodlett (June 11, 2019)
Both of these books should be arriving some time today via Amazon preorder.
- Rise by Ellen Goodlett — I have to resolve the cliffhanger that Rule left me with in January. That’s why this book will be read first.
- Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan — as amazing as this book sounds, I have to read that sequel first.

Description from Amazon (Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon)
Liang Anlei wants a life of glory and revenge
As a warrior who protects her village from shadow spirits, Anlei has never been beyond the borders of her town. All of that changes the day the viceroy and his fleet of mechanical dragons arrives. It’s the protection her village is desperate for, but it will only be given in exchange for Anlei’s hand in marriage. Torn between wanting to protect her village and her own freedom, Anlei is forced to make a sacrifice.
The day before her wedding, she encounters Tai, a young thief who is also trying to save his people. Tempted by his quest and the thrill of glory it promises, the two embark on an epic journey to the Courts of Hell to discover where the shadow spirits come from. But the secret of their existence isn’t so easily solved.
Amid dark experiments and battles on magic-fueled airships, Anlei must summon the courage to be the hero; to live the life she has always dreamed of.
