I am featuring a YA fantasy book today that I loved. The take on the fae and the mythology of it was a fun, unique twist. The heroine, Sianna, is damaged, scarred, brave, and amazing. I am hoping to feature an interview with the author sometime soon and you will get to hear more about this book, but for now–just know that you really want this book! 🙂
There was absolutely no way a black dragon hovered outside of
Newtimber. Sianna rubbed her eyes, but the dragon was still there, clutching a round object that looked
like a spotted egg. And then the egg fell, hitting the ground like an atomic bomb, sending out waves of a
slow-moving fog that distorted everything it touched.
The citizens of Newtimber change. The old man down the street
stretches into a screaming tree. Sianna’s skateboarding friend, Matt, transforms into a giant green
dragon. Pegasus. Sirens. Griffins. Vampires. Zombies. Creatures from the myths of every culture come to
life through the people.
Even Sianna changes, her skin becoming stone hard, and she gains
the ability to travel from the human realm into the dimension of the fae, using it to free her father from
prison and enlist his aid in battling the evil bent on taking over the world.
One person to heal a family, a town, and save the world. It seems an
impossible task, but with the help of her new friends, it could happen.
~ About the author ~
Karen E. Hoover has loved the written word for as long as
she can remember. Her favorite memory of her dad is the time he spent with
Karen on his lap, telling her stories for hours on end. Her dad promised he
would have Karen reading on her own by the time she was four years old … and he
very nearly did. Karen took the gift of words her dad gave her and ran with it.
Since then, she’s written two novels and reams of poetry. Her head is fairly
popping with ideas, so she plans to write until she’s ninety-four or maybe even
a hundred and four.
Inspiration is found everywhere, but Karen’s heart is fueled
by her husband and two sons, the Rocky Mountains, her chronic addiction to pens
and paper, and the smell of her laser printer in the morning.
