I'm blowing the dust off my blog to tell you all about a few books I'm BEYOND excited about. For the next few weeks, I'm going to highlight a book every Monday. The book I choose might be one I've read or just one I'm looking forward to reading. I'm not doing reviews (I HATE writing book reviews), just sharing and promoting books/authors that deserve it!
The book I chose today is a MG/YA epic fantasy titled THE HUNDRED: FALL OF THE WENTS, written by Jennifer Prescott. I met Jennifer on querytracker.net several years ago when I was querying my first book. I immediately became a huge fan of her blog (if you get a chance, check it out--especially some of her older posts--she's HILARIOUS) and we soon became "blogging buddies," reading and commenting on each other's posts. I'm now honored to be in a writer's group with her, along with a bunch of other insanely talented writers (#GoatPosse shout out!). I haven't gotten the chance to read the book YET, but I've been told it's an amazing story with detailed world-building and beautifully crafted characters. So without further adieu . . .
Millions of years in the Earth's future, humans have long vanished from the planet. Evolution has produced a host of wondrous and intelligent beings: shape-shifting Fantastic Grouts with globes of light atop their skulls; creatures descended from flowers; and massive swarms of bees that can bore perfect holes through metal or bone. But some seek a way to bring the humans back into the world-a world filled with creatures like twelve-year-old Tully, a young, amphibious Eft who imagines humans as nothing more than old bones and fairy stories. When his beloved guardian is stolen by a menacing black shadow, Tully must embark on a journey to a cruel, northern land to save her and his entire species. In an adventure that blends time travel, magic, and science, Tully learns whom he can trust, and who will betray him-for the price of reawakening the Hundred.

Come back next Monday when I tell you about the best book series I've ever read (yes, better than Twilight, The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc)!!
