The second book in my GMMG to be read pile is Amy McNulty's NOBODY'S GODDESS. Another Month9Books release with an amazing cover. What do you think of this?
Beautiful, right? It has that whole mysterious fantasy feel to it, which I love. Here's the Goodreads blurb:
In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.
Seventeen-year-old Noll isn't in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.
Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither is willing to lose.
Why I want to read it: I love fantasy of all kinds and this one sounds different and intriguing. I'm looking forward to it!
