With Reign of Magic’s launch just a few days away, I thought now would be an ideal time to stir the pot with a recommended reading list to look at before it’s officially out. Reign isn’t going to get us all the way caught up on the current timeline (there are way too many other things happening for that–cough, Acri, cough) but it does hustle us through most of the remaining fairy tales. If you want to be truly in the know, I suggest, however, that you familiarize yourself with the following books…
Whew, that is quite the list! Now remember, Reign is stuffed with Easter Eggs, so keep an eye out for hints and clues–even in scenes that you’ve seen before in other books! (And sometimes especially in those scenes.)
Until next time, Champions, thanks for reading!
Probably a bit late to this post but this seems the right place for a suggestion for a new (re)reading order…
I’ve come to KM Sea a bit backwards. My first read was AoM. I resisted Beauty for months because of the cover (specifically that dress – what happened to the original cover from this blog?) – actually until I realized it was the same Elle, then I read it right away. By that time I had moved on to CoM and was impatiently waiting for RoM. So I read a few of the Timeless books (as well as some other fairytale authors).
Once RoM was released – and part way through, when I realized it would not wrap up Angel’s story (grrrr- thought it was a trilogy!) -I decided to start over, reading through the Enchantress books, stopping (mid-book) for the matching Timeless books! It was fun.
Suggestion for a poll – fav character/pair without their own fairy tale. My choices (so far) would be Clovicus and Firra/Donaigh, but the mages manning the assignment desk are also intriguing.
Thank you Kitty for such lovely characters, and fun twists on some of my fav fairy tales (Yeah for Wild Swans!).
Question: Does it launch at midnight? If so, 4 HOURS!!!! Yayyyy!!
Well, where I’m at it does…
Here is a small conversation starter: How do you pronounce Evariste’s name??? I pronounce it eh-vuh-rist. How about everyone else??
My brain pronounces it the same as you. Kitty pronounces it Eh-var-is-tay.
But, she is the first to admit she doesn’t know how anything sounds
All of my friends think I’m crazy because I squeal and jump up and down when I think of RoM finally coming out! CAN”T WAIT!!!!!!!! SOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter and I have been dying for this book to come out (I think she’s asks me every week at least once if you’ve announced it yet) and now your releasing it on my birthday! Excellent birthday gift to myself!
I’ve been randomly squealing whenever I think about it!!!! So EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALMOST HERE!!😁😀

TOMORROW!!!! I CAN’T WAAAAAIT!!!!!!!!
🙂 I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!!
AHAHAH IM SO EXCITED I’ve been waiting and it feels like forever!! Thank you sooooo much for finally publishing I kept feeling like I would explode I need to know what happens next 😂😂
Hahaha, hopefully it will be satisfying! It opens a few cans of worms, but I think they are /good/ cans! 😉
I’m so excited! I want to read it the moment it shows up on my kindle! But, I also feel like maybe I should make it a reward for finishing a section of my senior project…
Good luck on your senior project!!! (I also use bribes to get myself to complete tasks, lol)
TWO MORE DAYS!!! Well, really, one and a half. I’ll likely stay up until midnight to get it on my kindle and then read all night long. I should have taken Friday off. 😉
I hope you enjoy it!! 😀 (Ahaha, and I really hope it’s worth the lost sleep.)
Go Kitty!!! Looking forward to seeing many of my favorite characters through Angelique’s eyes. Empress Sonya is definitely high on that list. I can’t wait to read it and I know it’s going to be amazing!
Yeeeeeeeeeees! She was such fun to see again! (When Myrrhlynn was doing a beta read to me she got to that chapter and had to stop to tell me she forgot how much fun Sonya was. She still has some good zingers, buwahah!)
Yay!!! Thanks Kitty!! I’m so excited for Reign of Magic. Your recommendations are very helpful for Easter Eggs!
😀 I hope you enjoy them! (Ahahah, it was difficult but also rewarding to pull together a bunch of threads I had buried in previous books. But honestly, my biggest concern is that you Champions still laugh and find it fun.)
Yay! (happy dance, happy dance) Can’t wait! My sisters and sisters-in-laws have been waiting for this book and we dissect just about everything. I will probably have to read it a couple of times, but it’s more because I don’t remember everything in the intimate and subtle details they are given without multiple readings. I’ve already re-read these books and am as ready as I feel I can be for this one. So glad this is a three-day weekend coming up! Thank you, Kitty! A well deserved job well done on getting this book published!
I’m so happy you’re looking forward to it, Arletta! (Particularly since I know you’ve been with me for a while.) I hope you and your sisters and sister-in-laws have fun talking about it! I’m willing to bet with you guys swapping observations, you’ll notice a lot more! 😉
Ever since Beauty and the Beast came out. It happened to come up as a recommendation after I had downloaded a book of different Beauty and the Beast stories from different countries. Taking the recommendation was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It’s not something I do often or lightly since they don’t always turn out so well. I can truly say I’m grateful for that though. This has been an amazing journey and I wouldn’t have wanted to missed it. Thank you for all the great stories. They are the kind I can read over and over again and enjoy them every time!
Awww, thanks Arletta! Today was a bit rough, so your kind message really meant a lot to me, and it amazes me to think I have an Amazon recommendation to thank for introducing us. Obviously, I’m so glad you’re on this journey with me as well! 🙂 Here’s to hoping you find Angelique’s series a fitting conclusion for all these years!
Oh I am so excited!
I wish I could post a gif, but alas I cannot–can’t even use a meme–so I’ll just say “Woohoo!!”
