Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.

But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.

With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Why I'm Waiting For It:

Because this reminds me of Rapunzel and I love retellings so this is a definite read for me. It's fantasy and it also looks like an epic friendship/love story between Luna and Fowler. My precious cinnamon roll, Brittany of Book Rambles has also shelved this under action, adventure and best-of-2016 so it  just excites me even more! And can we talk about the gorgeous book cover? *le grabby hands*. It also comes out on my birth month too so I'm definitely treating myself. Or you know, I wish I could get an ARC of this heh.

What book are YOU waiting on? Do you like fairytale retellings too? Are you waiting on Reign of Shadows yourself?
