Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Disenchanted by Brianna Sugalski @briannathebard @XpressoTours

Brianna Sugalski
(A Lay of Ruinous Reign, #1)
Publication date: December 16th 2022
Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Fantasy, New Adult, Romance

At the peak of the Breton Renaissance, Lilac TrĂ©cesson is held prisoner in her own castle after a most wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her fifteenth birthday. Her coronation looms years later, and between their town riots and the noble family bent on snatching her throne, she prepares for the worst…

Until a letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to banish her curse forever.

Her heirloom dagger at the ready, Lilac embarks into Brocéliande and finds herself in the hands of a bloodthirsty barkeep who demands her help in exchange for protection against the even deadlier forces of the woods.

She is thrust on a quest to uphold her family’s legacy—and her sovereign right to destroy it and start anew—by any means necessary. Pity the fool to underestimate the girl with subpar blade skills but pure spite to make up for it.

This is the tale of a cursed princess,

A crestfallen killer,

The town that wants them to burn,

And the witch who can save them both.

My Review:

Lilac has been locked away in the castle where her family lives for many years. After a curse was placed on Lilac her father locked her away. Lilac’s father announces that he is going to give up the throne. Lilac then sets out to find a cure for her curse so she can take the thrown herself. Upon her journey, Lilac meets a young man at a bar whom she becomes very close to romantically.

I loved the world that was created for Disenchanted. I liked that it had witches, vampires, and Demons as well. Disenchanted is a very interesting story that will keep you hanging on wanting more. It will have you racing to the end to see how it all turns. Once I picked up Disenchanted I couldn’t lay it down until I had read the last page.

Disenchanted grabbed my attention with the summary and never let go from the moment I picked it up. Once I read that summary I couldn’t wait to start reading it. And once I did I was pulled deep into its world.

Disenchanted is the first book in the A Lay of Ruinous Reign series. Disenchanted is also the first book by Brianna Sugalski that I have read. I can’t wait to read more about this enchanting world in the next book in the A Lay of Ruinous Reign series.

Grab a copy of Disenchanted today and join Lilac on her quest to find a cure for her curse! 

Author Bio:

Southeast Asian fantasy author with a soup addiction. Diverse medievalist and developmental editor who lives in oversized sweaters, and prefers to explore the more ominous—disenchanting, if you will—undertones of history, romance, and the arcane.

My debut, Breton Arthuriana-inspired YA Dark Fantasy DISENCHANTED, released with the Parliament Press in March 2020, and is being re-released and rebranded for the New Adult/ Adult indie market in December 2022. The rest of the trilogy will follow this updated genre rating.
