Lately we have been so busy that we forgot to add new authors to your life. With work, reading and conferences had us overwhelmed. Hopefully we don’t miss another Friday.
This Friday is a very special author who we both adore. Her book will blow you away and the cover will leave you speechless.
Keira Drake is our author this Friday. We had the opportunity to read her book before the release date and we are in love.
Here’s the synopsis from GoodReads:
For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.
We hope you enjoy your tour of the Continent!!
