Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria
Expected Publication: October 9th 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
In the city of Eldra, people are ruled by ancient prophecies. For centuries, the high council has stayed in power by virtue of the prophecies of the elder seers. After the last infallible prophecy came to pass, growing unrest led to murders and an eventual rebellion that raged for more than a decade.
In the present day, Cassa, the orphaned daughter of rebels, is determined to fight back against the high council, which governs Eldra from behind the walls of the citadel. Her only allies are no-nonsense Alys, easygoing Evander, and perpetually underestimated Newt, and Cassa struggles to come to terms with the legacy of rebellion her dead parents have left her — and the fear that she may be inadequate to shoulder the burden. But by the time Cassa and her friends uncover the mystery of the final infallible prophecy, it may be too late to save the city — or themselves.
3 REASONS I’M EXCITED FOR BENEATH THE CITADEL
- It’s a standalone fantasy. How often does that happen?
- Diverse? I might be wrong, but I’ve heard this has bisexual boy and fat, asexual girl in the leads. Win.
- Adventure. The summary makes it sound like it’s going to be a wild ride — a group of misfits, prophesies, rebellion and corruption. It sounds really action-packed.

I think I’m going to try and get at least one more arc read for #arcaugust. Maybe The Demon Race by Alexandria Warwick. I’m completely stumped about my next audiobook though… I might do a Twitter or Instagram poll to decide… Any favourite audiobook suggestions?
