An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

STEELHEART / FIREFIGHT by Brandon Sanderson, Read An Excerpt & Enter To WIN! #Steelheart #Firefight #ForgetNothing



Check it out! Today on the blog I've got something exciting for fans of Brandon Sanderson! To celebrate this month's release of FIREFIGHT, the second book in Brandon's The Reckoner's series, I'm hosting an epic giveaway! Thank you to Random House, I've got a copy of both STEELHEART (book 1 in the series), and FIREFIGHT to giveaway to one lucky reader! First, here'a little bit about FIREFIGHT. 


ABOUT FIREFIGHT

By: Brandon Sanderson
Published by: Random House
Released on: 1/6/15
Series: The Reckoners #2
Purchase from: Amazon | B&N
Add it to Goodreads

Brandon Sanderson is back with a vengeance in FIREFIGHT, the follow up to the #1 New York Times bestselling Steelheart. In the book that Kirkus Reviews is calling a “rare middle volume that keeps the throttle open,” Sanderson takes readers on another a thrill ride and “presents a Marvel Comics-style mix of violently destructive battles, fabulous feats and ongoing inner wrestling over morality and identity.”

David Charleston still can’t believe it. Steelheart is dead, and he died by David’s own hand. Even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic, but the invincible has fallen and now Newcago is free. Despite attaining revenge for the murder of his father and living his dream as a team member of the most elite Reckoners cell, David finds he has more questions than ever before, and he won’t find the answers in his home city. 

Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as Manhattan, could hold the key. Ruled by the mysterious and ambivalent High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is a place flooded with water and painted in neon, where the inhabitants spend most of their days lounging and nights partying. David can’t seem to understand the complacency of the city and its residents, but what he does understand is that being positioned here, risky as it may be, could lead him to the answers he so desperately seeks. Because there is an emptiness in him, one left behind after killing Steelheart, that was filled unexpectedly by Firefight, who is just plain Megan to him. And David will stop at nothing to find a way to understand Epics and bring her back to him. Hopefully for good this time.

The second book in the Reckoners series and follow up to the highly acclaimed Steelheart, which Publishers Weekly called “an absolute page-turner,” FIREFIGHT is filled with spine-tingling adventure and heart-racing action that promises to satisfy fans both new and old.

With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

After killing the men who tried to steal her father’s research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet’s secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor’s own walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor’s long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she’ll follow her father’s dark footsteps or her mother’s tragic ones, or whether she’ll make her own.

With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity. 


Read A COLD LEGACY excerpt 
(from p.21-24)


Montgomery stopped the horses outside a tavern. He came to the carriage door, opening it just a crack to keep the rain from drenching us. “I’m going to ask directions. We can’t be far now.”
We watched him saunter over the muddy street as though he didn’t even feel the bite of freezing rain. A face appeared in the tavern window. The door opened and he spoke to a woman in a wool dress for a few moments, then stomped back through the mud. “This village is called Quick,” he told us. “The manor’s only five miles from here.”
“Did you hear that?” Lucy murmured to Edward, still stroking his hair. “We’re almost there. Just hold on. Everything will be all right once we arrive.”
Montgomery’s eyes shifted to me. Neither of us wanted to remind Lucy that the prospect of Edward’s fever breaking—and the Beast’s reappearance—was almost more frightening than the fever itself. Delirious, he was less of a threat.
“Let’s go then,” I whispered to Montgomery. “And quickly.”
He closed the door and in another moment we were moving again, passing through the rest of Quick. Then all too soon the village was nothing but fading lights. The storm grew and the road became rougher, and all the while Edward’s eyes rolled back and forth beneath shuttered lids.
Thunder struck close by, and Lucy shrieked. Montgomery whipped the horses harder, pulling us along the uneven road impossibly fast, trying to outrun the storm. I twisted in the seat to look out the back window at the pelting rain. A stone fence ran alongside us.
“We must be getting close,” I said.
“Not soon enough,” Lucy breathed. “We’re going to crash if he keeps driving like this!”
The road widened, straightening, letting us travel even faster. Lightning struck close by, blinding me. The horses bolted. Lucy screamed and covered her eyes, but I couldn’t tear mine away. The lightning had struck an enormous oak tree, twisted from centuries of wind. The oak took flame, blazing despite the rain. A smoking gash ran down the trunk—the lightning’s death mark. I watched until the rain put out most of the flames, but it still smoldered, billowing hot ash into the night.
The horses pawed the earth, and I grabbed the window to steady myself. At this wild speed, just hitting a single rock at the wrong angle would send the carriage shattering to the ground. It was madness to go so fast. Couldn’t Montgomery calm the horses?
Just when I feared the carriage would careen out of control, it stopped short, throwing me against the opposite wall. I tangled in Lucy’s limbs as the chains around Edward’s body clinked. Balthazar grunted, jerking awake at last. We scrambled in the bottom of the carriage until the door flew open.
Montgomery stood in the pelting rain. I feared he’d say we’d broken another strut or the horses had gone lame or we’d have to spend the night in the harsh storm.
But then I saw the lights behind him, and the night took shape into a turreted stone manor with bright lamps blazing and gargoyles on the roof vomiting rain into a stone courtyard.
Montgomery’s eyes met mine beneath the low brim of his hat.
“We’ve arrived,” he said.

About Megan



Hello! 
I’ve been many things, like a professional exchange student, park ranger in Montana, and LOST enthusiast, but what I am now is a writer.
I think it’s fair to say I was born into it. I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, raised behind the counter of my parents’ independent bookstore, Highland Books in Brevard. Ah, so many free books. But I never thought being a writer could be a real career. After college I thought I’d end up as a foreign service officer somewhere dashing and exotic, like Canada. I studied French, Spanish, German, and Russian and still speak a few of those. Then I joined the Peace Corps and spent two years in Senegal, where I learned a few more languages I’ll never speak again and lived in a mud hut with no electricity or running water. You can probably imagine how that experience went, but if you’re curious, here are the dirty details
It wasn't until a chance aquaintance read something I wrote and said, "have you ever considered being a writer?" that something clicked and I realized it was possible. My husband encouraged me, and I quickly fell head-over-heels in love with writing and children's literature in particular. I started out writing articles, which have appeared in Faces, Appleseeds, and Calliope magazines, and stories for younger children. I soon realized I wasn’t sweet enough to write fiction for that age and found myself writing young adult literature instead, which doesn’t require nearly as many tender moments and includes a lot more cursing.
When I'm not writing, I can usually be found horseback riding, day dreaming at coffee shops, or hiking in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I love to hear from readers, so please drop me a line!
I am represented by Josh Adams of Adams Literary.

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord, Book Review



By: Emery Lord
Published by: Bloomsbury
Released on: 4.15.14
Source: Purchased Book
Rating: 5 Stars - I LOVED It!
Purchase it from: A | B&N
Add it to Goodreads

After breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, Reagan O’Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind. . . and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own. Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, offering a perfect opportunity for a girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence. This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking. A fresh new voice in contemporary romance, Emery Lord’s gorgeous writing hits all the right notes.

I have found another favorite YA contemporary author to add to my selective list of favorites. Emery Lord's debut, OPEN ROAD SUMMER blew me away! I LOVED IT!! Her writing is flawless.It's real, it's beautiful, and it's vulnerable in the way I am emotionally connected to her characters. It was so easy to get lost in the world she created within the pages of her book. 

It's been awhile since I have loved all the characters I am introduced to in a book. The characters of Open Road Summer are three dimensional characters I truly enjoyed getting to know. They are written in such away that I felt like I was spending time with friends. I loved the way the all supported one another. I admired them for the way they were working through their flaws, how they learned from past mistakes, and the way they were trying to sort out their futures, while also enjoying their here and now moments. Most importantly, I loved how they accepted each other for who they are now, and didn't allow their past actions define them. 

The emotions in this book are so spot on. 

I loved the way Emery Lord got her characters. She got their circumstances, and she understood what they were feeling, and dealing with. She didn't rush the emotions and moments they had.  In writing them she did, I was able to get them, and understand them. I feel like so often in contemporary books, these certain aspects get over looked, or get rushed, making the story emotionally hard to connect, or feel not so realistic. This was not the case with this book.

The relationships in this book are AWESOME! 

I loved Reagan and Dee's friendship. They have one of those best friend relations where they just get each other. I completely understood it. They have had a history together. I liked that while they've been through so much, they openly talked about the stage they're at now, where they have come from, and what their future holds for the two of them both individually and together. They're at the stage where you're on the verge of setting off to make your own mark on the world, and it's scary and exciting, because that friendship you've always depended on, might not be the same after it. Thankfully Dee and Reagan have a friendship that I don't think will change. I loved that Reagan and Dee ground each other.

 Matt & Reagan are my new favorite literary couple! 

I LOVE Reagan and Matt's relationship. These two are so fabulously written. I don't remember the last book I read that made me laugh as much as I did while reading it. The these two get under each other's skin, and raz each other so much, it's hilarious. And neither of them backs down. Matt knows how to unnerve Reagen, and Reagen knows how to dish it back. Neither is afraid to say what's on their mind. Reagan is definitely a straight shooter, and Matt can definitely handle it. 

Can we saw sexual tension?! Their chemistry definitely ignites the pages. Despite Reagan's denial at first, it's obvious not just in the words that are written, but also in the body language, how much these two like each other. I loved that their relationship is one that builds in a very natural way. They are both broken characters, but instead of trying to fix each other, they help each other, and support each other as they work through/accept their pasts. In doing so, they learn to trust each other. Through their  getting to know each other, they slowly broke down the barriers both had in place. Naturally they became friends, and then something more. 

I HIGHLY RECOMMEDN PICKING THIS BOOK UP! 

Everything about this book was so perfectly written, and crafted together. From the characters, to the words that Emery Lord wrote on each page. Nothing about this book lacked awesomeness. That's the best way to describe this book. It is literally an awesome book. I've not loved any other YA contemporary as much I have loved Stephanie Perkins's books, until this book. Now I love both author's books equally. They've both that good.
