If you’re a fan of Rachael Craw’s Spark, you’ll know that there is only a week until the second book in the series, Stray, is released. If you haven’t read Spark, you absolutely need to go and grab a copy now so that you’ll be up-to-date with the story before it continues in book two. I’ve just re-read Spark to prepare myself for Stray, so Rachael’s brilliant story and characters are fresh in my mind. I have to know what will happen to Evie, her family and friends, and what the repercussions will be from the events of Spark. It is such an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat read and Stray is sure to be more of the same. Spark is one of the best YA science fiction books I’ve read and it’s even better knowing that Rachael is from New Zealand!
It’s hard to remember hating anything as much as I hate Affinity; a bone-deep loathing for the faceless unknown and the concrete walls of my own DNA. Evie is a Shield: designed to kill in order to protect, and the Affinity Project have finally come for her. But Evie isn’t ready for the sinister organisation to take control of her life, her body, her mind. She isn’t ready to follow their rules about who may live and who must die – not when it condemns the innocent. She has one option: risk losing everything and everyone – including Jamie – and run.
I’m super excited to be helping Rachael Craw launch Stray in Christchurch next Tuesday night! I’m looking forward to meeting Rachael, hearing all about Stray and getting my book signed. If you’re in Christchurch or near-by you could also come along too. Here is the invitation to the launch:
If you can’t get to the book launch I have some fantastic news for you! Thanks to Walker Books Australia I have 5 copies of Stray to give away here on the blog. I’ll ask Rachael to sign them so I’ll have 5 SIGNED copies to give away. Keep an eye out on the blog next week for your chance to win.
