In a world governed by the opposing forces of the mystical House of Tarot and the tribal Great Families, Synn is caught in the crossfire. He witnesses the slaughter of innocent people, and the devastating murder of his father. This act awakens his Mark of power, a Mark greater than any the world has seen in a very long time.

Queen Nix thought she won a great prize when she destroyed Synn’s father, the leader of the strongest Great Families. She had no idea she’d be doubly blessed by capturing his son. However, before Synn can become her treasured weapon, before she can use him to bring the rest of the world to its knees, she must break him and bind his soul to hers.

She does her job with brutal brilliance. Synn’s mind is broken and his soul is seared to hers in an unbreakable bond.

That doesn’t stop him from wanting to be free. She may have broken his mind and claimed his soul, but he will find a way to destroy her.  (Goodreads)

~Why I'm Crushing~

Any book with a flying ship on the cover is probably one that I want to read. Besides being beautiful, this cover tells me this book is fun, action-packed and magical. The cover has this whole steampunk vibe, a genre I'm just now getting into, so that makes me doubly excited to give this book a try. The colors are fantastic (RED is just so fierce!) and there is a great deal to admire when you first catch a glimpse of this cover. I first saw it on the author's website and it's stuck with me ever since. Love it!
