BBNYA Spotlight: All or None by Aurora Lee Thornton

Hello, reader!

It’s the second to last day of the BBNYA spotlights for this year’s semi-finalists! Participating as a panelist and following along with this tour has helped me discover so many incredible, indie authors. For today’s spotlight, I’ll be highlighting a book that sounds like it would be a right up my alley; a fantasy that promises magic and romance: All or None by Aurora Lee Thornton! But before we get into the post, let’s talk more about this spotlight tour and BBNYA in general.

Synopsis


“In a world where everyone has a soulmate, uniquely powerful mage Royiora and reluctant assassin Kalo collide in the worst of ways.

Royiora Daralkaen, the only mage alive able to use all five kinds of magic, has a near idyllic childhood in the country of Porescalia – before war breaks out with their antagonistic neighbors, Kloria.

Kalo Porla, a naturally magic-proof individual known as a Null, is trained to be as an assassin by the authoritarian empire known as the Domain.

When Kalo and his partner assassin are sent to kill a mage and his apprentice, it starts a journey neither man was prepared to begin.


Content warnings: harm to children, physical and psychological abuse, implied (off-page) rape, violence, mature language, minors in implied sexual situations (teenaged romance), implied sexual situations, bigotry towards fictional races, and suggestive language.”
