TX – Fierce Reads 2017 Signing

Scott Westerfeld, Taran Matharu, Kristen Orlando, and Erin Beaty sign at BookPeople on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

ABOUT SPILL ZONE

The first volume of an original graphic novel series from New York Times–bestselling author Scott Westerfeld.

Three years ago an event destroyed the small city of Poughkeepsie, forever changing reality within its borders. Uncanny manifestations and lethal dangers now await anyone who enters the Spill Zone.

The Spill claimed Addison’s parents and scarred her little sister, Lexa, who hasn’t spoken since. Addison provides for her sister by photographing the Zone’s twisted attractions on illicit midnight rides. Art collectors pay top dollar for these bizarre images, but getting close enough for the perfect shot can mean death—or worse.

When an eccentric collector makes a million-dollar offer, Addison breaks her own hard-learned rules of survival and ventures farther than she has ever dared. Within the Spill Zone, Hell awaits—and it seems to be calling Addison’s name.

ABOUT THE TRAITOR’S KISS

What makes her unfit to be a lady, makes her a brilliant spy—but can she spot another?

To escape the threat of being married off by her uncle, orphaned Sage Fowler accepts an apprenticeship with a matchmaker. Intelligent and unruly, she’s perfect for gathering information on prospective clients. Protected by a small army contingent, Sage and her mentor escort a group of ladies to be matched with noblemen. Sage spies on soldiers and brides alike as they travel.

Amongst rumors of a political uprising, a handsome solider recruits Sage to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers, the more uncertain she is of whom to trust. Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

With secret identities and a tempestuous romance, The Traitor’s Kiss is Jane Austen with an espionage twist.

ABOUT THE BATTLEMAGE

The third book of the YA Summoner quartet, which has been compared to Tolkien, Rowling, and Pullman.

Fletcher and his classmates from Vocans Academy—including the elf Sylva and the dwarf Othello— time-travel through the ether, pursued by Wyvern Riders and the albino orc, Khan. In a race against time to survive the ether’s poison, they find clues about traitors in their midst, and Fletcher’s demon, Ignatius, changes in ways neither anticipate.

With plenty of duels, double-crosses, and even some romance, the team of Summoners faces their biggest challenge yet. Can they rebuild their world and broker peace?

Harry Potter meets Pokemon meets The Lord of the Rings in Taran Matharu’s Summoner quartet. Fans will eagerly anticipate this action-packed installment.

ABOUT YOU DON’T KNOW MY NAME

A girl raised to be an elite spy is torn between honoring her family’s legacy and living a normal life with the boy she loves in this thrilling YA debut, chosen to be the FIRST Swoon Reads hardcover!

Fighter, faker, student, spy.

Seventeen-year-old Reagan Elizabeth Hillis is used to changing identities overnight, lying to every friend she’s ever had, and pushing away anyone who gets too close. Trained in mortal combat and weaponry her entire life, Reagan is meant to follow in her parents’ footsteps and join the ranks of the most powerful top- secret agency in the world, the Black Angels. Falling in love with the boy next door was never part of the plan.

Now, Reagan has to decide: Will she use her incredible talents and lead the dangerous life she was born into or throw it all away to follow her heart and lead the normal life she’s always wanted? And does she even have a choice at all?

She and her husband have five children, two cats, and a vegetable garden and live wherever the Navy tells them to go.

(W) David Baron (A) Yusuf Idris (CA) Steve Morris
Meet Emma London: recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and – did we mention? – part machine. Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t. Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice. Emma attempts to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers, but her story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for a priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined.
