Okay, so the greatest part of being in the Utah writing scene is the launch parties. There are a PLETHORA of them, and I try to get to as many as I can. Admittedly, that is not as many as I would like, especially in the winter.
But it wasn't snowing this week, and so I made the trek over the mountain (for realz. We drive over a mountain from one county to another. The spot is even called "point of the mountain") to Sara B. Larson's launch party for IGNITE.
About IGNITE: Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson's acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.
Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?
I haven't read the book yet (I just got it on Tuesday), but I've read DEFY, and I really liked it. I'm sure I'll enjoy IGNITE too. If you haven't tried this YA fantasy series yet, you should!
And here's a picture of just a few of the people at the party: Kathryn Purdie, Emily West, Nichole Giles, Sara B. Larson, Jo Schaffer, Erin Summerill, and me.
