Hello, dears. The year is nearly snuffed, but we have bright, bright news!
First, the One Four Audies…. Livia Blackburne‘s Midnight Thief is now available on Audible, and the audio edition of Meredith McCardle‘s The Eighth Guardian has received a starred review in School Library Journal. Way to go!!!!
“Maggi’s pacing is quick, and her imaginative prose (with its ear for dialogue) supports a cast of characters…All elements combine to create a nicely textured real world where a surreal battle’s set to take place.”
“Reminiscent of Twilight and Harry Potter, Winter Falls is … full of mystery and adventure. Alessia’s character is fully realized as she struggles with her grief over the death of her father and navigates the ups and downs of friendships, high school, home life, and her newfound role as member of the Benandanti.” – VOYA
“Drawing on Italian lore, debut novelist Maggi weaves an intriguing…urban fantasy in which rival clans war for control of magical hot spots, including a waterfall near the tiny Maine town of Twin Willows.”
Dana Alison Levy‘s THE MISADVENTURES OF THE FAMILY FLETCHER has been popping up on several Best of 2014 lists, including NPR and The Boston Globe! The audiobook is also one of Audiofile Magazine’s Best Books of 2014. Hooray for the Fletchers!
