Apparently this is based on a true story. In 1882, the steamboat Asia sank on one of the Great Lakes. The only survivors were two teens. Historical fiction with a horror/thriller edge and gripping forbidden romance. #canlit #historicalfiction #orcabooks #canadareads #canadianauthor #canadianbooks #truestory #bookstagram #booklover #kaiespace

Are you a fan of #dragonbooks ?
.
Honestly, I don't care either way, which is why I put off reading these for so long. Big mistake! The Hunter series by the unfailingly brilliant #mercedeslackey is an exciting and original mash-up of a futuristic #postapocalyptic world where the veil between the worlds was torn by atomic bombs in WWWIII and the fairytale and legendary beings (not just dragons) that came through are NOT friendly. Except for the doglike beings who team up with human hunters to take down their enemies. But to keep the masses pacified, the hunters do double duty as reality tv celebrities and compete for fans.
.
This #sciencefantasy / futuristic #urbanfantasy read combines thriller pacing, social commentary, and fairytale monsters for a trilogy you won't be able to put down.

#canlit featuring westcoast/indigenous/supernatural themes. Last year's #sonofatrickster was a Giller Prize shortlist with an intriguing mix of legend-based magic and all too modern traumatic teen experience, but I didn't realize it was part of a series. This sequel shifts locations from small-town interior to Vancouver. Probably trigger warning for people who experienced abuse by parents/authority figures, but the overall experience is a hopeful/empowering read with unexpected twists and seriously trippy dream sequences.

LOVE new #laurierking reads. She writes brilliant #historicalmystery books for when I need a break from #yafantasy - check out the #maryrussell mysteries for turn of the (last) century feminist sherlockian adventures or the #katemartinelli mysteries for a more modern, female-led take on detectives, murder-mysteries, and crime procedurals. #readmysteries #booksandtea #flatlayfail #bookstagram #bookaholic #kaiespace
Here's one for all the awesome international readers!

BLURB: Cole has a love-hate relationship with irreverent, imaginative, trouble-making Cadence . . . or at least she would if the Mara hadn't taken all that. Hope. Desire. The ability to feel. The will to defy.
.
But Cole was the lucky one. At least she survived--not like Cadence, doomed to remain forever frozen on the edge of adolescence. If anything, the Mara blessed Cole by rendering her incapable of disobedience, a perfect drone.
.
Or at least, that's what should have happened. That's what she clings to during the long, listless days in Refuge. Because if anyone uncovers the truth, she'll lose what little she has left.
.
So if your thing is "unique, twisted dystopian fantasy" with "a deep and intricate storyline" use the coupon code DECSALE at the Kobo Sale link in the bio by Dec. 17 and stock up on some #monstersandmagic for Christmas.

Creepy, complex Diviners series by #libbabray ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ”ช
.
If you like your prohibition era historical fiction with flappers and political-shaded paranormal, this is the series for you. Diverse, fun, and remarkably scary in parts. #beforethedevilbreaksyou #yahistoricalfiction #yahorror #yaparanormal #bigbooks #bookstagram #stabbybooks #knivesandbooks #booklove #kaiespace
Less scary than the Diviners, set across the pond and a few decades earlier, but with all the witchy creepiness you've come to know and love from #libbabray

*UPDATED*
I stand corrected (via Twitter, so apparently people actually *do* see my tweets?๐Ÿ˜‚) and it turns out this series was plotted and written by all three authors. So, credit where it's due & I guess that's what I get for Bookstagramming too long after the fact and forgetting what I read. ๐Ÿ˜…
--------------
Interesting concept: one author wrote the first book in a trilogy and plotted out the rest, then other authors did the next two. I'm a huge #scottwesterfeld fan, so kinda disappointed that he didn't just write the whole thing, but the ideas are there. ๐Ÿ˜…

The Hunter trilogy was so good! I don't particularly care for dragons so I kept moving it to the bottom of my #tbr but it's more of a futuristic/post-apocalyptic urban fantasy! Worldwide war opened a rift to the Otherworld and let in creatures of legend. But, to pacify the population, the war between humanity and the monsters is turned into (edited) reality tv and the magic-using human warriors have to fight for ratings at the same time as they fight for their lives. Man, I never should have doubted the brilliant #mercedeslackey ๐Ÿ˜‚

Plotting day for UNDER THE SURFACE rewrites!๐Ÿ“šโœ’๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰
.
It's great when you return to a story and it turns out the plot & last draft were actually  pretty decent? Like, yay past-me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘
.
Trying out #theplotwhisperer by #marthaalderson to see if I can make it even better on this round! But also, I suck at doing things IRL so it's already a chaotic mess and I haven't even added the scenes to the chart ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
Also, the fur balls will not stop climbing all over my story map, so there's that . . .
