Last Star Burning

Synopsis:

Sev is branded with the mark of a criminal—a star burned into her hand. That’s the penalty for being the daughter of the woman who betrayed their entire nation.

Now her mother’s body is displayed above Traitor’s Arch, kept in a paralyzed half sleep by the same plague that destroyed the rest of the world. And as further punishment, Sev is forced to do hard labor to prove that she’s more valuable alive than dead.

When the government blames Sev for a horrific bombing, she must escape the city or face the chopping block. Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely person—Howl, the chairman’s son. Though he promises to lead her to safety, Howl has secrets, and Sev can’t help but wonder if he knows more about her past—and her mother’s crimes—than he lets on.

But in a hostile world, trust is a luxury. Even when Sev’s life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the balance. 

My brief take:

This one was very suspenseful, full of complex characters and a cliffhanger ending! I just kind of discovered this one by accident, but I really hope you all give it a try. I’ll have a more complete review soon.

Just a reminder, to win you need to comment on my post and follow my blog. Last day to enter is November 3 and I’ll be announcing the winner on November 4. International winners are OK on this one. I might tuck some other goodies in the package, it just depends on the budget! Good luck!

The Fifth Doll!

Ta-Da! I just realized that I sorta spilled the beans a couple weeks ago (oops) so it wasn’t as much of a mystery what the book was as I wanted it to be, but I hope it’s been fun anyway! Here is your big giveaway! All signed by the author, Charlie N. Holmberg, as promised.

So the book signing was lots of fun, mostly friends and family (and me, who is neither), all squeezed into the little American Fork Library. Charlie bubbled around, greeting everyone. There was a table with Matryoshka dolls set up and cool stuff like that. And EVENTUALLY the books showed up.

Anyhow, Charlie was great, the book sounds great, and I snagged a copy to share. First I will give you a brief Q & A I put together based on the event, then I’ll tell you how to win a SIGNED COPY of this awesome book!

Questions and Answers

charlieeditedweb.jpgWhere did you get your inspiration for this book?

I was doing a class for the BYU Worldbuilders thing on magic systems and had an idea for how you can build a magic system around anything, like salt, or thread, or Matroyshka dolls, and then I thought, “Nope, I’m keeping that one.”

Where did you get the name for the main character? 

Her name is Matrona, which means woman in Russian and it’s also the root for the Matroyshka dolls, which I thought was really interesting.

How many projects are you working on right now?

About 6 different things.

What book do you wish you had written?

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. I love the magic system.

flatline-no-growth.jpg-1170x824-700x492All that stuff and a bag too! I warned you that I might keep adding to the giveaway, right? Well, here’s the latest. It’s a one of a kind book bag. It’s made of denim with a yellow and pink fringe at the bottom and hot pink webbing straps at the top. It’s just the right size for a couple of hardback books or a book and a bottle of water and your wallet.

Here’s a closeup of the fringe: fringe

How’s that for exciting? Pretty dang cool.
