I am so excited (as if you can’t tell)!!!! Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl From Everywhere and The Ship Beyond Time– you know, one of my absolute favorite YA Fantasy series (duology) in the past couple of years- has a new trilogy beginning, and the cover was just revealed on Bustle!!! It’s gorgeous!!!
So, here’s a tidbit about For A Muse of Fire (killer name, right? Shakespeare’s Henry V, anyone?):
Jetta (our awesome heroine) and her family live in a war-torn land and are known for their magical puppet shows. Jetta, however, has a secret: she can see the recently departed, and bind them to the puppets. The family’s shows win them a spot aboard a royal ship (yay, more sea fun!!) that supposedly has a magical spring that will cure all. Jetta is determined to learn the cure. She meets a smuggler along the way, with his own secrets, and she faces some hard truths and difficult decisions.
There is an exclusive excerpt over on Bustle, that you should really check out! This promises to have everything that we have come to expect from Heilig’s writing: incredible world building, characters that are well developed and fully fleshed out, adventure, action- What more can you ask for? Is it September yet??!!
