Heart of Thorns
(Heart of Thorns #1)
By Bree Barton
YA Fantasy
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 320 Pages
July 31st 2018 by Katherine Tegen Books


Inventive and heart-racing, this fiercely feminist teen fantasy trilogy from debut author Bree Barton examines a dark kingdom in which only women can possess magic—and every woman is suspected of having it.

Mia Rose wants only one thing: revenge against the Gwyrach—feared, reviled, and magical women—who killed her mother. After years training under her father’s infamous Hunters, Mia is ready. She will scour the four kingdoms, find her mother’s murderer, and enact the Hunters’ Creed: heart for a heart, life for a life.

But when Mia is thrust into the last role she ever wanted—promised wife to the future king—she plots a daring escape. On her wedding night, Mia discovers something she never imagined: She may be a Huntress, but she’s also a Gwyrach. As the truth comes to light, Mia must untangle the secrets of her own past. Now if she wants to survive, Mia must learn to trust her heart . . . even if it kills her.

Guest Post: How to Know if You’re a Gwyrach

Y/N   Find a red fojuen arrowhead and hold it to your chest. Does your heart beat wildly while your head burns like molten lava?

Y/N   Think back on your mother and grandmother. Were they often whispering secrets to one another when they thought you couldn’t hear?

Y/N   Touch the skinned knee of a child. Is the broken skin mended from your touch?

Y/N   Touch the wrist of someone you dislike. Does the blood stop flowing in their veins?*

Y/N   Have you always suspected you have tremendous power inside you, a power to hurt and a power to heal?

Y/N  Remove one of your gloves and walk outside. Do people shriek in horror?

Y/N   Are you in the dungeons of Kaer Killian, taking this quiz on a piece of moldy bread?

*Best to practice with a physician present.  

If you answered “no” to four or more questions, congratulations! You are not a Gwyrach. If you are a woman, it is possible you are in denial about your true power. We advise reading as many books as possible, and not the ones in the castle library. For the time being you are safe…unless the king deems you guilty and carts you to Kaer Killian, never to be seen again.

If you answered “yes” to four or more questions, congratulations! You are a Gwyrach, Daughter of Flesh, Descendent of Angels. You must flee the river kingdom immediately. Find your way through the twisted forest, across the salted sea, and into the land of the volqanoes, where you will be welcomed as the great and glorious goddess you are.
