Hello, reader!

Prepare yourself for yet another blog tour stop on a wonderful #TheWriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour! Seriously, Dave @ The Write Reads organizes some of the best tours and all you book bloggers should definitely check him out. What book are we diving into today? Knightmare Arcanist is the beginning to an epic fantasy series where magic reigns and mystical creatures run rampant!

Before I get into my review, though, I must say “Thank you” to Dave @ The Write Reads, Capital Station Books, and the author, Shami Stovall for not only giving me a spot on this tour but sending me a physical copy of the book in exchange for an honest review! It is much appreciate, especially since the cover is stinkin’ beautiful 😍

And now, let’s jump into this tour post!


Magic. Sailing. A murderer among heroes.

Gravedigger Volke Savan wants nothing more than to be like his hero, the legendary magical swashbuckler, Gregory Ruma. First he needs to become an arcanist, someone capable of wielding magic, which requires bonding with a mythical creature. And he’ll take anything—a pegasus, a griffin, a ravenous hydra—maybe even a leviathan, like Ruma.

So when Volke stumbles across a knightmare, a creature made of shadow and terror, he has no reservations. But the knightmare knows a terrible secret: Ruma is a murderer out to spread corrupted magic throughout their island nation. He’s already killed a population of phoenixes and he intends to kill even more.

In order to protect his home, his adopted sister, and the girl he admires from afar, Volke will need to confront his hero, the Master Arcanist Gregory Ruma.

A fast-paced fantasy with magical creatures for those who enjoy the Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera series) by Jim Butcher, Unsouled (Cradle Series) by Will Wight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.
