Happy March! I hope you are feeling green because Spring is around the corner and I have an awesome Author in the Spotlight this month.
You are going to scream with excitement or at least do a happy dance.
March's Author is Andrea Cremer. When I started blogging 5 years ago, she was a new author and Nightshade had just came out. I reviewed her book, did an interview and she spoke at South high, where I teach everyday. Then she moved to New York and hit the big time. Andrea has a new Steampunk series starting and she has moved back to Minneapolis. So this is the perfect time to feature her on Book Snob.
The Nightshade series contains four books and two prequels. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it.
Here is the synopsis of Nightshade:
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads of Andrea's newest book, The Inventor's Secret:
Sixteen-year-old Charlotte and her fellow refugees have scraped out an existence on the edge of Britain’s industrial empire. Though they live by the skin of their teeth they have their health (at least when they can find enough food and avoid the Imperial Labor Gatherers) and each other. When a new exile with no memory of his escape from the coastal cities or even his own name seeks shelter in their camp he brings new dangers with him and secrets about the terrible future that awaits all those who have struggled has to live free of the bonds of the empire’s Machineworks.
The Inventor’s Secret is the first book of a YA steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century North America where the Revolutionary War never took place and the British Empire has expanded into a global juggernaut propelled by marvelous and horrible machinery.
This month we will have a book review, a contest, an author interview and a possible guest post. You can learn more about Andrea Cremer and her books, The NightShade series and The Inventor's Secret at her website: www.andreacremer.com
Have a Great Month. Happy Reading!
