Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seventeen Magazine Summer Club author Amalie Howard grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 22 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts.

 

She received a bachelor’s degree from Colby College in Maine in International Studies and French, and a certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, marketing representative, teen speaker and global sales executive. She currently resides in New York with her husband and three children.

 

She is represented by the Liza Royce Agency. Visit her at www.amaliehoward.com or on Twitter (@AmalieHoward).

 

Review:

"This high-octane thriller from Howard (Waterfell) centers on Riven, a 17-year-old Legion General from Neospes, an alternate Earth that was nearly destroyed by warfare centuries earlier. She has come to Earth to find Caden — the handsome, long-exiled twin brother of Prince Cale, who is fighting for his life against a usurper. After months of searching, masquerading as an American teen, Riven enrolls in Caden's high school just in time to prevent him from being captured by the usurper's monstrous dead warriors, the Vectors. In the process, Riven discovers that Caden, who doesn't know who he truly is, has had other defenders, including Riven's estranged older sister. Soon they're all on the run with the Vectors in pursuit. The action never stops, and though the language is occasionally over-the-top ('Everything inside of me feels like it's on fire. My ribs are splintering with alternating bands of hot and cold surging like rotating tides inside me'), SF and dystopia fans will be right at home with this book and its fierce, capable heroine. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Liza Fleissig, Liza Royce Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
