A magical evening is in store for attendees of Mysterious Galaxy Books’s Gathering of Young Adult Authors at with V. E. Schwab, Kiersten White, Cecil Castellucci and Caragh M. O’Brien on Monday, February 29, 2016 at 7:30 PM!
David’s review of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, a Fantastic Firsts Pick, noted, “Featuring appealing main characters, splendidly wicked villains, and a horrifying conception of magic, Schwab’s fantasy will shock you and thrill you. Highly recommended!“ In A Gathering of Shadows, as Red London prepares for a magical competition, pirates and the shadows of other Londons loom on the horizon. Cecil Castellucci’s original SF adventure, Stone in the Sky, is new in paperback – or explore the pre-Force Awakens Lucasverse with her Princess Leia novel, Moving Target. High school English teacher turned novelist Caragh O’Brien is the author of the dystopian science fantasy Birthmark series, and psychological SF thrillers The Vault of Dreamers and The Rule of Mirrors, which take reality television to a terrifying new level. And San Diego’s own Kiersten White will discuss Illusions of Fate, her standalone fantasy, and tease readers with news of this summer’s brutally romantic novel, And I Darken, and maybe even her upcoming middle grade work!
