“He calls himself the Prince of Merchants,” Drakon said. “Apparently, he discovered the human queens were traitors months ago, and has been gathering an independent human army to face Hybern ever since. He managed to find Queen Vassa—and together they rallied this army.” Drakon shrugged. “He told me that he’s got three daughters who live here. And that he failed them for many years. But he would not fail them this time.” The ships at the front of the human armada became clear, along with the gold lettering on their sides. “He named his three personal ships after them,” Drakon said with a smile. And there, sailing at the front … I beheld the names of those ships. The Feyre. The Elain. And leading the charge against Hybern, flying over the waves, unyielding and without an ounce of fear … The Nesta. With my father … our father at the helm. - A Court of Wings & Ruin - Sarah J. Maas
✨
👨Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies out there and a special shout out to @manningt_ for being the best father to our daughter a mother could ever hope to have!! I’m so glad I get to do the parenting journey with you!!😘✨💖
✨
👨‍👦Did you see @therealsjmaas post this morning?!! Tears!!😍
✨
✍🏻 Today’s #signedbooksundays prompt is Dads in YA!! Finding good parents in YA is difficult at best!! My first thought was Charlie Swan but, alas, none of my Twilight books are signed. But then I remembered how Feyre’s father came through for them and I just had to spotlight the Archeron patriarch!!

✨🦇 Who’s your favorite Illyrian? Besides Rhysand that is?😉
✨
🦇I have always been attracted to the silent, dark, mysterious types so, for me, it’s always been Azriel!! The Shadowsinger intrigues me and I cannot wait until his story is highlighted!! ✨
🦇 This gorgeous, glittery, fantastically scented (Shadows, Cedarwood, & Cream) candle is from @flickerwix and it’s so worthy of its beautiful namesake!!
✨
🦇 If Cassian is your bae, he has his own beautiful candle!! You can get your choice (or both) at Katie’s site!! Be sure to use Code Tammy10 to save some money!!
✨
🦇#fiercecreaturesinlit - Banshee - Made You Scream: The ACOTAR Series made me scream many times: in horror, in surprise, in elation...All The Feels!!
✨
🦇#bookreadhappyhour - Such a Cinnamon Roll!: Azriel is my ACOTAR Cinnamon Roll!!😍
✨
🦇I’m extremely far behind on tags!! I apologize!! @_starlitreader tagged me to complete the #rainbowbooktag - Thanks P.J. 😘
✨
🌈 Red/Romance: I’m originally a romance reader and I think that the best Fantasy series (that I’ve read) for this is The Remnant Chronicles. In particular, Morrighan, the prequel, is very romantic!!
✨
🌈Orange/Sci-Fi: Empress of a Thousand Skies ✨
🌈Yellow/Fantasy: ACOTAR Series ✨
🌈Green/Adventure: The Falconer Series!! My favorite!! It has everything!!😍
✨
🌈Blue/Thriller: The Hazel Wood ✨
🌈Purple/Historical: All Souls Trilogy - Another favorite!! I can’t wait for the tv series to air!!
