Eight Will Fall by Sarah Harian
In a land where magic is outlawed, eight criminals led by seventeen-year-old Larkin are sent on a mission to kill an ancient evil that plagues their kingdom. Descending into an underground realm full of unspeakable horrors, Larkin and her party must use their forbidden magic to survive what lies in wait, teeth sharp and jaws deadly.
As she fights for her life, Larkin finds a light in Amias, a fellow outlaw with a notorious past. Soon Larkin and Amias realize their fates are entwined. The eight of them were chosen for a reason.
But as the dangers multiply and her band of felons are picked off one by one, Larkin must confront a terrible truth: They were never meant to return.
Sarah Harian crafts a thrilling, high-octane fantasy adventure that explores the often-thin line between light and darkness, good and evil.
Okay, this book has like three different things that I love: murder mystery (people being picked off), evil plaguing a kingdom (okay, I don’t love this but it sounds super intriguing), and a GANG (I love me some ensemble castsssssss). This really kind of sounds like Six of Crows but fighting evil instead of stealing stuff. I’m intrigued, and the cover is pretty cool, too.
✔️ THIS BOOK IS RAPUNZEL APPROVED!
Fighting for life? Teaming up with an outlaw? This definitely has Rapunzel all over it! There is definitely themes of good vs. evil in Rapunzel’s story as well, and I definitely think she will be eager to go on this adventure.
