Cover Reveal: Girl of Fire and Lightning

August 14, 2013

Girl of Fire and LightningI am here with a cover reveal of Girl of Fire and Lightning by Harrison Paul, the third book in the Kaybree the Angel Killer series.

Girl of Fire and Lightning by Harrison Paul
Expected Publication: August 13th, 2013

"While Kaybree continues to defend the city against the Angels, she also investigates her mother's secret society. She wants to believe that her mother will use the Witch's power for good, and wants to trust her heart and conscience to Galen. But are the Angels oppressors as he claims, or are they trying to prevent her mother's inventions from destroying the world? Kaybree's fate hangs on her ability to trust Galen, but as he takes charge of the city's defense and navigates its political currents with a manipulator's touch, she wonders which face he shows is his real one.

When the next Angel prepares to send a legion of monsters against the city, she journeys into the depths of the forest to stop the attack. The battle for humanity begins, and Kaybree must learn the truth of her mother's inventions or risk plunging the world into darkness and ruin. As she confronts the true villain responsible for the Angel attacks, she must also make a decision that will determine the future of all Nordgard."

About the Series:

Kaybree is a teenage girl from Nordgard, an alternate history Scandinavia where mythical beings called Angels have protected and gu ided mankind for millennia--until they started attacking fifteen years ago. Her mother's organization, the Vormund Order, defeated the first Angel attack and has been guarding the borders by the forest ever since.

When Kaybree is called to the city and discovers her ability to transform into a being of fire and lightning, she realizes she is her mother's secret weapon against the Angels. Her mission is to defend humanity from their former protectors while her mother perfects a series of inventions meant to create a better world for everyone. But she soon realizes the situation isn't as simple as her mother wants her to believe. The Angels want to protect humanity as well, and her mother's inventions--or Kaybree's own dangerous powers--could be the reason for their attacks.

Joined by her friends--a bard, a scholar, a reindeer, and a mysterious border guard--Kaybree must battle the Angels while investigating her mother's organization and studying the ancient relics that allow her to use her powers. She knows that there must be a way to reconcile with God's holy messengers, and is determined to find the truth before a war erupts that could end civilization.

August 12, 2013



It's time for another read-a-thon! I'm looking forward to bringing myself out of this reading slump. Here is more about this read-a-thon:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


So I have prepared a list of books I would like to read during the week:

Maus by Art Spiegelman 
Deathnote by Tsugumi Ohba
The Death Cure by James Dashner
- The Near Witch by Victoria Shwab
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I'm super excited to get into these books, and I can't wait to participate in some of the challenges! I've always been lazy on that part...

Will anyone be partaking in this read-a-thon?
