Check out the awesome new book trailer for Kami Garcia’s Unbreakable! From the bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series, this is one book you don’t want to miss.
The trailer kicks off with Kennedy, a teenage girl who’s still reeling from the mysterious death of her mother when she stumbles on another horrifying surprise. Ghosts? Are totes real.
“I never believed in ghosts,” Kennedy says, “until one tried to kill me.” (We feel you, girl. We never believed in ghosts until one came into our apartment and bought a bunch of shoes on the internet and left empty boxes of Cheez-Its all over the place. Or at least, that is what we told our boyfriend when he asked. SERIOUSLY DUDE, IT WAS GHOSTS.)
Now, Kennedy is faced with a terrifying truth: Her mother was no ordinary woman, but a member of an exclusive club whose members were bound in perpetual battle against a vengeful otherworldly demon. And with two hot twins offering her a choice: instant membership in their ghosthunting club, or the distinct possibility of death at the hands of some murderous bag of ectoplasm, Kennedy is about to sign up for a hell of an extracurricular…and commence the fight of her life.
Unbreakable hits stores October 1.
Margie is a great writer, but turns out that she also is a great interviewer. She interviewed Leigh Bardugo for Shelfari. You can read an excerpt of the interview below, but for the entire thing, CLICK HERE.
Margaret: Let’s talk about the Darkling. You’ve
written arguably the greatest villain-as-love-interest we’ve seen in YA. It’s
as unlikely as if you’d written a version of Heart of Darkness where Kurtz is the hottie. Did you have an
inspiration for the Darkling in your own mind?
Leigh: First of all, thank you, and second, I
may require “Kurtz is the hottie” on a T-shirt. But I’m always wary
of the term “villain.” The Darkling believes he’s doing the right
thing for his people and his country, and I think you could make a case for
most of the choices he makes, even the despicable ones. He was inspired by
every really bad badboy I ever fell for in fiction. I’m not talking about the
wounded, pouty guy who’s just looking for the right girl to give him an excuse
to be a hero, but the truly dangerous guys with an agenda””Flagg (who appears in various
guises in several Stephen King books), Raistlin (Dragonlance), the Hound
(George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire), and”¦okay, I’ll admit it, Jareth
the Goblin King from Labyrinth. (I don’t know what his agenda was but it
involved very tight pants.)
