So, you know when you’re paging through the offerings on NetGalley or Edelweiss and a book just jumps off the electronic shelf at you? Or maybe you don’t? Did you know you can get free electronic review copies here or here? Especially if you’re a librarian. So this just jumped at me when I saw it – I’m going to leave you to your own assumptions…
Luckily for me (and for you), because I requested a preview copy, I was invited to take part in the Ninja Librarians Recon Team. I think I’m a week behind, but today I will be sharing with you an excerpt from the book, and a sneaky peek at the book trailer – enjoy!
Twelve–year–old Dorothea Barnes was thoroughly un–chosen, not particularly deserving, bore no marks of destiny, lacked any sort of criminal genius, and could claim no supernatural relations. Furthermore, she’d never been orphaned, kidnapped, left for dead in the wilderness, or bitten by anything more bloodthirsty than her little sister.
