Is This Series the Next 'A Court of Thorns and Roses?'
Cameron CapelloApr 27 2023
Fans of ACOTAR have been buzzing about Carissa Broadbent's latest series, "The Serpent and the Wings of Night," because of its similarity to Sarah J. Maas's popular A Court of Thorns and Roses series. The best part? Carissa Broadbent released the second book in the series last week, "The Ashes and the Star-Cursed King." so there's no need to wait to dive back into the story.
"This book found me," says BookTuber The Fun Size Reader in her video review. "The best way for me to try to describe it to you, just a one-liner description of this book: it is a vampire Hunger Games. Do I need to say more?"TikTok creator Jayden Kouli can't stop talking about the series. Kaven_books, an avid fantasy romance reader and writer, is obsessed with this dark fantasy. This book will make your heart race with its action and romance, featuring men with wings, a strong female protagonist, and a legendary tournament held by the goddess of death. We're not making any promises, but when Booktok and Bookstagram claim that they have not felt this intensely about a book since finishing the beloved ACOTAR series, you cannot help but be curious.
