For a second there, it looked as though academy books were taking a back seat on the charts but oh no! The old are just making room for the new.
Releasing the Gods is celebrating its third week at the top of the charts (check out the original post here) but #3 looks like its going to put up a fight for the top spot. Let’s find out what’s at the top of the Teen & Young Adult Paranormal & Urban Fantasy chart this week:
“Elise Callisto. Vampire. Angel of vengeance. And a girl on a mission to destroy one of them for murdering my brother. I just don’t know which one did it yet.
When I kicked the ass of a Werewolf who was high on a new and dangerous drug called Killblaze, his final words painted a dark reality for me. The King of Aurora Academy killed my brother. The trouble is, there’s four kings at that school and each of them have motive and cutthroat natures.
Aurora Academy isn’t a place for the faint of heart. To put it lightly, my town is the asshole of Solaria where the dodgiest Fae in the kingdom reside. The school itself is divided by the two gangs who run this town. The Lunar Brotherhood and the Oscura Clan. And guess what? Two of the kings run the gangs at the school, their hatred for each other so fierce I hear a day doesn’t go by without blood being spilled in the halls.
I might be a petite, lilac-haired girl who looks like a fragile doll, but they haven’t been introduced to my fangs yet. And they don’t know why I’m really here. Or that I’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the Fae who took my flesh and blood from me.
I don’t believe in fate, but I do know this… the King who killed my brother is a dead man walking. And I’m prepared to sacrifice my heart, body and soul to ensure I get my revenge.”

There is a ridiculous amount of stuff going on in this book and I’m a little intrigued. I’m always a little wary of reverse harems because they’re either done right or very, very wrong. But also, the idea of vampire vs. fae with the fae being the bad guys is a pretty original idea.
This book actually has some crime thriller vibes going on alongside the academy thing. What’s kind of baffling (in a good way) is how the monarch and mobster undercurrents will work. But honestly, the blurb is so good that actually I’ve got a lot of faith these authors have nailed it.
This book isn’t that pricey, I’d say it’s mid-range for e-books, but I’m going to have trouble affording it before payday. One thing is for sure, though: I’m going to get this one as soon as possible!
Thanks for reading!
