The Friday Society

Posted by on Nov 14, 2012 in Review, Trailers | Comments Off on The Friday Society

MG and now YA author, Adrienne Kress, is releasing her newest achievement, The Friday Society
on Friday December 5th.

Set in London at the turn of the last century, the novel follows the stories of three intelligent and very talented young women, all of whom are assistants to very powerful men: Cora, lab assistant to a member of parliament; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant to a martial arts guru; and Nellie, a magician’s assistant. The three young women’s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It’s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder — and the crimes they believe may be connected to it — without calling too much attention to themselves.

Told with Adrienne Kress’s sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike — well, relatively ladylike — heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

Book Trailer: Starling

Posted by on Oct 21, 2012 in Trailers | Comments Off on Book Trailer: Starling

If you liked Leslsey Livingston’s young adult novel trilogy Wondrous Strange, then you’ll love this new book featuring one of its key characters: Fennrys.

LOVE IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE END.

Mason Starling is a champion fencer on the Gosforth Academy team, but she’s never had to fight for her life. Not until the night a ferocious, otherworldly storm rips through Manhattan, trapping Mason and her teammates inside the school. Mason is besieged by nightmarish creatures more terrifying than the thunder and lightning as the raging tempest also brings a dangerous stranger into her life: a young man who remembers nothing but his name—the Fennrys Wolf. His arrival tears Mason’s world apart, even as she feels an undeniable connection to him. Together, they seek to unravel the secrets of Fenn’s identity as strange and supernatural forces gather around them. When they discover Mason’s family—with its dark allegiance to ancient Norse gods—is at the heart of the mystery, Fennrys and Mason are suddenly faced with a terrifying future.

Set against the gritty, shadowed back-drop of New York City, this first novel in award-winning author Lesley Livingston’s epic Starling Saga is an intoxicating blend of sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action.
