Sally Green created and broke out hearts with the Half Bad trilogy a few years ago and she is BACK this spring in a MAJOR way this spring (correction: NEXT WEEK!!) with her full-fledged fantasy (that includes a map), The Smoke Thieves! The Smoke Thieves can be compared to YA Game of Thrones (with demons!) and features the converging story of multiple characters. Both her world-building and characterization of Nathan and Gabriel were what made the Half Bad story so compelling, so we are THRILLED to have Sally on the blog today giving us a little bit of insight into her new series and characters.
Imagine combining the slasher qualities of 90’s movies like Scream seamlessly with the warm haziness of unrequited love from an 80’s John Hughes flick and a road trip so surreal it would give Hunter S. Thompson a run for his money. This is the magic of White Rabbit. Caleb Roehrig’s second YA book is another foray into mystery, but that’s where the comparisons ends with this sophomore book. Mischievous, sarcastic and a totally wild ride, find out all the reasons you should be picking up White Rabbit when it releases next month.

This last Tuesday, the second and final book in the Blood Rose Rebellion duology was released–Lost Crow Conspiracy! I have had some mail issues, so while I haven’t read the book, I can get you hyped up for Lost Crow Conspiracy from my Blood Rose Rebellion reading.
Anna can’t perform the simplest magical task. In fact, she’s so magically incompetent that she seems to break every magical spell around her. Her family, not pleased by her ruining her sister’s magical coming out, and is exiled to visit her ‘other’ family in Hungary. While in Hungary, Anna discovers that neither her family, her world, nor her magic are what they seem to appear to be. She keeps breaking spells and has discovered that the rebellion isn’t just talk, but actual events going on all around her. She also discovers a secret about herself. Without spoiling too much, Anna may or may not be THE ONE and this lays the groundwork for Lost Crow Conspiracy.
