Rx: “Ash Princess”
Prescribed by: Laura Sebastian
Prescribed for: Readers who love YA and are missing HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
Side Effects: Bloodshot eyes from not wanting to blink and miss any of the action.
“Ash Princess” is the first book in a trilogy from a debut author who credits J.K. Rowling and George R.R. Martin as writing influences. This is a fantasy novel of epic proportions.
Directions: As a child, Theodosia watched her mother’s kingdom fall into the hands of a despotic ruler who had repeatedly pillaged other kingdoms in his efforts to rule the world. With her mother’s death, Theo becomes a prisoner in her own palace, subjected to regular abuse and forced to endure brainwashing in an effort to stay alive. When she is faced with a choice…kill or be killed…her betrayal changes everything, setting off a chain of events that will alter the course of history for her people. If she survives.
Special Instructions: Take with warm food and drink, carbs and chocolate recommended.
We recommend Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa by Delish. Helps to make a large quantity as you don’t want a lot of interruptions when you are reading!
And this Carmel Macchiato Banana Bread from Allrecipes….drooling profusely over this carb-laden gem!
