Hello, booklings! I’m so sorry for being VERY inactive lately, the wifi is down (even until now) and I’m currently writing this blog post on my phone (how lovely).
The format will be a lot less brilliant than that of my previous blog posts but please bear with me!
Today I’m going to reveal another cover yet again, and it’s Middle Grade! I personally like the premise of the book and I hope you do too 💖
About the Book:
Title: Keara’s Raven: Escape
Author: Mindy Klasky
Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Release Date: March 19, 2019
In the sheltered village of Silver Hollow, Keara knows exactly what she must do: Follow her mother’s strict rules and worship the twelve gods. But Keara’s twelfth birthday is looming, along with an obligation she dreads. She must sacrifice her beloved darkbeast on a holy altar.
Other children despise their bonded scapegoat animals, but Keara loves her raven, Caw. He’s her only friend, the sole creature who understands her headstrong ways.
When a traveling theater troupe passes through the village, Keara glimpses a way to escape. But the Great Road comes with its own dangers, including dread Inquisitor priests who hunt down heretics.
Will Keara find the strength to flee the only home she’s ever known? Or will she be forced to slay her closest friend on the altar of the gods?
About the Author
USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky learned to read when her parents shoved a book in her hands and told her she could travel anywhere in the world through stories. She never forgot that advice.
Mindy’s travels took her through multiple careers. After graduating from Princeton University, Mindy considered becoming a professional stage manager or a rabbi. Ultimately, she settled on being a lawyer, working as a litigator at a large Washington firm. When she realized that lawyering kept her from writing (and dating and sleeping and otherwise living a normal life), Mindy became a librarian, managing large law firm libraries. Mindy now writes full time.
And now, the best part! Ladies and gentlemen, presenting you the cover of Mindy Klasky’s new book, Keara’s Raven: Escape!!! *drumroll*
