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.
In anticipation for the release of Winter Glass, which releases NEXT WEEK (FINALLY!!), today we review the first book in this duology, Spindle Fire!
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.
I am thrilled to be a part of the blog tour and have prepared a fashion set for you to admire after you learn a little more about the book and Rosalyn!
It’s release week for Sara Holland’s Everless, and I am absolutely ecstatic to be on the blog tour today! Everless is a world where time is currency and danger lurks around every corner for Jules, who must return to her childhood home to repay some debts. It’s thrilling and will completely suck you in from the first page.
For today’s post, author Sara Holland has curated a special playlist to accompany certain scenes in the book for your, so without further ado, let’s learn about Everless, Sara and this amazing fantasy world she has created!
I want to add that I finished Everless last night and this is an actual video of me listening to Sara’s playlist.
