Today, I am delighted to host the Blog Tour organized by Favourite Pages Book Club for The Opal Amulet.

Fourteen year old Emberly Tollens doesn’t dream often but when she does its never a good sign, especially when its the same dream. Some nights she would dream of the sweet nothingness of time. Other nights the voices would get louder, the running faster, and the staff colder. Ice cold. But this is just the beginning of her problems.

Things get even stranger when she finds a dangerously beautiful opal necklace lying on the ground at school. Not strange at all. And definitely not strange when your once kind of nice teacher turns into a fire-breathing creature from the past, right?

BLOG TOUR (+Giveaway) : Forget This Ever Happened by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Today, I am delighted to host the Blog Tour organized by TBR and Beyond Tours for Forget This ever Happened. 

 

Sometimes there’s a town called Indianola.

And sometimes there isn’t.

Summer, 1993. Claire has been dumped in rural Indianola, Texas, to spend her whole vacation taking care of mean, sickly Grammy. There’s nothing too remarkable about Indianola: it’s run-down, shabby, and stifling hot, a pin-dot on the Gulf Coast.

Well, there is one remarkable thing, she discovers. Something otherworldly.

But if you leave Indianola, you forget about it… and if you stay, you have to live with it every day.

Because there’s a confluence of energies at Indianola, a fissure in time and space, a gap in reality. Nothing is as it seems. And unless Claire can figure out this town–the talkative lizards under the pecan trees; the honey-sweet but terrifying girl next door; the cute daughter of a powerful family, who would answer Claire’s questions if she had any answers; the pervasive sense of history coming unspooled, like a video tape–she might never leave.

Featuring a mindbending plot, heartfelt queer romance, brilliant writing, and intricate worldbuilding, Forget This Ever Happened is a lush and thrilling genre-bender perfect for the Black Mirror generation.

Grant Beagan isn’t looking for trouble.

He’s just an ordinary teenager who likes astronomy, video games, and keeping his mom happy… or at least, happy enough. But everything changes for Grant when, by a twist of fate, he stumbles into a magical world very different from his own, a world filled with breathtaking wonders and amazing abilities, known as the World of the Lit. It is a world hidden in plain view, right in front of the rest of us (aka “the Unlit”), but most of us only catch fleeting glimpses of the magic it contains. Overnight, Grant finds himself standing face to face with bizarre creatures, becoming a member of a complex magical society, and best of all, having his own dormant channeling abilities “lit” by a very special recruiter, called a Flame.

As Grant begins to experience his new life as a member of the Lit—becoming a student of magic, exploring mind-bending new locations, and meeting extraordinary new mages of different nationalities (and species!)—he can’t imagine ever going back to his old life in the Unlit world. That is, until he learns of a dangerous conflict arising in his midst. Before long, Grant finds himself embroiled in a battle between the Finder, a powerful type of mage that hasn’t been seen in five hundred years, and the Controller, a dangerous being with the power to exert control over the minds of others. To emerge unscathed, Grant will need to hone his channeling skills, build upon the powers he’s gained, face his deepest fears, solve a series of unusual mysteries, and apply the wisdom of the Mage Code, a set of seven principles left behind by the previous Finder centuries ago.

Featuring memorable characters, fun and imaginative locations, uplifting themes, and a rich set of magical abilities, the first book in the Grant Beagan series unveils the extraordinary world of the Lit, a society of mages that is concealed from—yet intricately intertwined within—the everyday lives we lead.
