This girl is the reason I started writing. We'd been in the same apartment complex while our husbands went to school and had grown really close. When she told me she was going to start writing, I had to start writing, too. I'd always wanted to, but it had only been a dream, that is until Katie inspired me to put pen to paper to "get to work."
It's been wonderful watching and reading Katie's amazing, lyrical writing. She tells powerful stories with complicated characters that I am happy to spend 100K plus pages in their worlds, struggles, and triumphs.
Sonya in BURNING GLASS is no exception. There's mystery, intrigue, the struggle to know her own heart, and an antagonist that I have a definite crush on. Sonya can feel other people's emotions and sometimes struggles to separate her own emotions from others. It can lead to some poor decision making, but also, to having the power of protecting the emperor (whether she wants to, or not). The comparison of "Red Queen meets Shadow and Bone" is spot on.

One lucky winner will receive a SIGNED! copy of BURNING GLASS, but I hope everyone goes out and buys and reads this incredible book. Isn't the copy so pretty?!? You want one, you know it! a Rafflecopter giveaway
