Synopsis:


Inventive and heart-racing, this fiercely feminist teen fantasy trilogy from debut author Bree Barton examines a dark kingdom in which only women can possess magic—and every woman is suspected of having it.

Mia Rose wants only one thing: revenge against the Gwyrach—feared, reviled, and magical women—who killed her mother. After years training under her father’s infamous Hunters, Mia is ready. She will scour the four kingdoms, find her mother’s murderer, and enact the Hunters’ Creed: heart for a heart, life for a life.

But when Mia is thrust into the last role she ever wanted—promised wife to the future king—she plots a daring escape. On her wedding night, Mia discovers something she never imagined: She may be a Huntress, but she’s also a Gwyrach. As the truth comes to light, Mia must untangle the secrets of her own past. Now if she wants to survive, Mia must learn to trust her heart . . . even if it kills her.









Bree Barton is a writer in Los Angeles. When she's not lost in whimsy, she works as a ghostwriter and dance teacher to teen girls. She is on Instagram and YouTube as Speak Breely, where she posts funny videos of her melancholy dog.

Sanctuary

by Caryn Lix
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Sci-Fi
 photo addtogoodreadssmall_zpsa2a6cf28.png photo B6096376-6C81-4465-8935-CE890C777EB9-1855-000001A1E900B890_zps5affbed6.jpg


Synopsis:


Alien meets Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds in this thrilling debut novel about prison-guard-in-training, Kenzie, who is taken hostage by the superpowered criminal teens of the Sanctuary space station—only to have to band together with them when the station is attacked by mysterious creatures.

Kenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.

As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.

But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.

At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.

As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows.








Caryn Lix has been writing since she was a teenager and delved deep into science fiction, fantasy, and the uncanny while working on her Masters in English literature. Caryn writes novels for teens and anyone else who likes a bit of the bizarre to mess up their day. When not writing, Caryn spends her time obsessively consuming other people’s stories, plotting travel adventures, and exploring artistic endeavors. She lives with her husband and a horde of surly and entitled animals in southern Alberta.

Co-Blogger Wanted!!

/ Jul 2, 2018


Hi everyone!!  Due to a lot of life stuff, we're looking for a 3rd person to help organize our tours!!  Here's a little bit about what we do:


  • The Fantastic Flying Book Club is a free blog tour service that helps promote new releases (mostly YA).
  • Michelle from Pink Polka Dot Books and Patricia from The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club are the organizers.
  • We do this for free for the love of books and authors.
  • We work with all the major publishers, and sometimes directly with the authors, to plan different types of tours based on need.
  • We usually plan about 5-6 tours per month.


Here's what we're looking for:


  • Someone who is willing to help part-time.  We need someone to fill-in our gaps but not necessarily do everything.  It's a time commitment, but probably just a few hours per week.
  • Someone reliable.  We need someone who going to be here for the long haul, so think about this carefully before replying.  It's defintiely time consuming answering tons of emails, making schedules, making graphics, etc.
  • We'd love someone who is established in the blogging world.
  • We'd love someone who is good at making graphics (that's something Michelle is not the best at).
  • Someone who is familiar with Blogger, Skype, MailChimp, Google Drive, and Dropbox.
  • US based is probably best for mailing purposes, but not mandatory.


Here's what's in it for you:


  • Tons of publisher contacts.
  • Books!!!
  • Exposure.
  • Friends for life!!
  • Chatting with your fave authors!!


I'm putting the link here for the application.  Please don't fill this out unless you are sure you will be in it to win it.  I don't want to train you, just to have you flake out on me.  It is time-sucking as I said above, but it is truly one of the things I am most proud of doing.  Plus, you will make so many friends, and you will have me and Patricia as life-long besties!!
