Today’s In-House Love blog post comes to you from Digital Marketing Associate Stephanie M. She’s a huge fan of Ann Aguirre’s books, so she couldn’t resist the opportunity to rave about Mortal Danger.
Why I Decided to Read the Book: It’s by Ann Aguirre, the author of the absolutely thrilling Razorland Trilogy (Enclave, Outpost, and Horde) and many, many more novels, including a swoonworthy new adult series and the upcoming young adult contemporary The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things. If you haven’t read Ann Aguirre, you are missing out.
What I Liked About the Book: I LOVE books that I cannot resist talking about even while I am reading them, and Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre is one of those books. It starts out as a story grounded in reality, changes gears by the end of the first chapter, and then continuously pulls the rug right out from under you. Every time something happened, I would immediately tell my boyfriend. “I cannot even believe what is happening in this book.” “So I know what I just told you was completely insane, but this is just so much more insane I can’t even. I can’t even!” Imagine having a completely normal life and then all of a sudden being involved with fiends and ghosts are more real than they’ve ever been before. That’s Mortal Danger.
My Favorite Character Is: My favorite character is Vi, the friend Edie makes during her summer program. I really liked that Vi was able to come out of her shell, make friends, and become part of a group without changing who she was as an individual. I was very happy when Edie and Vi stayed in touch after the program.
My Favorite Scene Was: Can I say every scene with Edie and Kian? I just loved the way these two interacted with each other. Their relationship was so realistic. They’re friends, they tease each other, they get into arguments, and then there’s romance. And that’s exactly how it should be.
A dystopian society. Romance. A protective older sister. Science fiction elements. What more could you want? Oh, maybe all of that for $2.99!
That’s right! Crewel by Gennifer Albin is available for $2.99 right now!
Deadly Secrets. Tangled Lies. Woven truths.
Incapable. Awkward. Artless. That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: She wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen to work the looms is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to manipulate the very fabric of reality. But if controlling what people eat, where they live, and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.
Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and used her hidden talent for a moment. Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her dad’s jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.
Because tonight, they’ll come for her.
Crewel is the first book in Gennifer Albin’s gripping young adult series.
And don’t forget. If you love Crewel, you can read Altered and Unraveled right away!
