Addiction Fiction Friday: The Continent (The Continent #1) by Keira Drake ~ Early review & Mood Board
Welcome to Addiction Fiction Friday where we feature a book of fiction that will become your new addiction. Today I am excited to bring you The Continent!
This is my new favorite book. Keira has such an eye for detail in her world building but most of all in her characters. This is one swoony book that leaves you with a book hangover without the cliffhanger which is refreshing.
I will be posting a full review closer to release!

For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.
*THE CONTINENT is the first book in Keira Drake's sparkling debut fantasy trilogy.
The Continent is one of those reads that is a slow burn that turns into an inferno. Keira Drake takes the superficial nature of humanity and strips it down to the core. Sometimes the people who seem the most inhuman beings are the best of humanity. This book had it all political intrigue, vivid world building, love story that will make you swoon, a journey of self discovery and so much more. This is one of my top reads of all time.
