From a High Tower (Elemental Masters) by Mercedes Lackey was released in June and I just realized I never posted about it!
From a High Tower is newest adventure in Mercedes Lackey's Elemental Masters series, featuring a retelling of Rapunzel’s not-so-happily-ever-after ending.
How's that for an in-depth description? In other words, surprisingly enough, there hasn't been a Rapunzel retelling in this series yet. Now there is. And reading the reader reviews, this isn't where to begin the series if you are interested. I am behind on these, but enjoyed some of the earlier ones well enough. According to most lists, this is book 11 in the series, but that is always crazy because this series changed publishers so there are more than that I think. It would technically be book 13 I believe. Here is my list. The Fire Rose is my favorite since it is a Beauty and the Beast tale. And behind that would be The Serpent's Shadow--those are the two books that come to mind rather vividly when I think of the series. And two of the books are anthologies, but that still counts for me!
