Featured Book of the Month

Halley K., Staff Writer

It is with a sad, sad heart that I write this today, dear Eagles. Although I know that I have left F.B.O.T.M. in the best hands, and am sure Lorelei will take this monthly article very far in The Talon, I am so proud of the legacy I have left behind. I have loved every article I have written for The Talon, including these monthly articles online. These articles that helped me express the love and joy I felt for books, made electronic. To be able to share these stories with you, and know that for someone, out there, I was able to bring enjoyment for them is the greatest feeling in the world. Seriously. I could not be happier than I am, or sadder than I am at this direct moment. Looking back, remembering typing the very first Featured Book of the Month, I am so impressed. Not only with myself, but with all of you Eagles for sticking with me through this journey. I have enjoyed every part of F.B.O.T.M. and am sure that Lorelei will too. Now, for my very last time, this month’s featured book is… Throne of Glass.

(WARNING: Throne of Glass is a YA book. If your parents say no, respect their wishes if they don’t want you to read it.) Throne of Glass is a wonderful tale, written by Sarah J. Maas. It is a series of 8, covering the world of a young assassin teenager named Calaena. Calaena Sardothien was imprisoned in the Endovier slave camp, for hunting down the people that others were too afraid to confront. Supposedly a monster, people fear her and her work. As the first book of the series unravels, Calaena goes through several challenges, trying to win back her freedom from the mischievous king, and his maddeningly handsome son, Dorian. Along with his Captain of the Guard. But you’ll grow to love her, I’m sure. So, join Calaena on her journey, in a story that meant so much to me this year.

I am so sure of the fact that Lorelei will make F.B.O.T.M. as great and popular as it can be. Have a wonderful summer, my eagles, and don’t forget to read this summer. I’m positive next year will bring great things for all of you, and wish you all the best. Onto the next journey. (Or maybe I should say ‘nest’ journey.)
