Well, WAIT NO LONGER. I should probably explain myself better then that, huh? Well, I was pining for this book, Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear, and then I started talking to the author and I ended up with a copy (signed!) at BEA. And while my crazy life hasn't allowed me to read it yet, which is why I am still waiting for it, you can read it now! It officially comes out today.
And I would totally be doing more to help promote it today, if I could. The problem is that starting at 9am, I will be in the airport and then flying to Chicago, for LeakyCon. Which is awesome, of course, I do love me some LeakyCon, but because of it I've been stressing out which means less reading and then less blogging. Also, I've just been in a huge reading slump.
Anyway, Innocent Darkness is what we're here to talk about, my friends, so let's do that.
Wish. Love. Desire. Live.
Sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock's hoyden ways land her in an abusive reform school far from home. On mid-summer's eve she wishes to be anyplace but that dreadful school. A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed, otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.
Doesn't that sound just so very good? I can't wait! Maybe I can read it on the plane. Anyway, and here is the cover, which is completely gorgeous and drool worthy!
