Synopsis: Nat and her drakon are the last of their kind—sworn to protect what their enemies seek to control—and she’s risked her life for their reunion. But fighting for the majestic Blue meant saying goodbye to Wes, breaking both their hearts. Back in New Vegas, citizens are threatened by the resurgence of magic and declare war on all the marked. Wes and his team travel to the extravagant indoor city of El Dorado looking for his sister, but when they are caught on the wrong side of the RSA’s strict new laws, Wes is forced to do the unthinkable—surrender and rejoin the military's quest to uncover the magical source, the same land Nat is struggling to protect. Now he and Nat find themselves on opposing sides of a war that could potentially destroy what’s left of the world.

#FanArtFriday: Disney Edition!

Since Annabell and company will be heading to Disney this week, we've decided to celebrate our LOVE and frankly, OBSESSION with all things Disney with some really AMAZING fanart *hehe*

Pocahontas and John Smith (via Athena on Digital Art)

Absolutely GORGEOUS piece! It's so intimate and soft. Would love to have this hanging on our walls!

Ariel (via Disney Fan Art)

We are HUGE fans of the Little Mermaid and this drawing of Ariel is STUNNING! We are TOTALLY in love with the pops of color and the transparent feel it gives off. It's so well detailed and reminds us of anime ;)

Disney themed Sailor Scouts (Sailor Moon) (via Disney Pop Art)

Eeeeep!! We LOVE LOVE LOVE Sailor Moon so to find fan art that merges our love for Disney AND one of our favorite shows growing up, we couldn't help but nerd out over it!!

Frozen themed Harry Potter (via Rebloggy)

We aren't 100% sure this is actually Harry Potter themed but it looks so close to HP school that we're just gonna go with it *hehe* LOVE LOVE LOVE the crossover between Disney and Harry Potter, especially considering our MASSIVE obsession with Harry Potter!! It's so cute to see the Frozen characters dressed in regular uniforms.

#WaitingOnWednesday: All Fall Down (Embassy Row Series, #1) by Ally Carter

All Fall Down (Embassy Row Series #1)

Author: Ally Carter

Add on Goodreads!

Pre-order on Barnes & Noble and Amazon!

Publication Date: January 20, 2015

Synopsis: Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace–no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.

Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world all stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

OUR THOUGHTS: We cannot wait for the new year if for no other reason than to be able to read Ally Carter's first book in her new Embassy Series! Fans of spy books and movies, we LOVE The Gallagher Girl Series and ALL FALL DOWN sounds like it'll be just as fun except with a little more edge ;) A murder mystery where a girl is determined to find her mother's killer? Sounds just dark enough and twisty enough and mysterious enough to keep us on the edge of our seats!
