Introducing Anna Banks, YABC's Author of the Week!!

NYT Bestselling YA author of The Syrena Legacy series: OF POSEIDON (2012), OF TRITON (2013), OF NEPTUNE (2014).

Repped by rockstar Lucy Carson of the Friedrich Agency.

I live with my husband and daughter in the Florida Panhandle. I have a southern accent compared to New Yorkers, and I enjoy food cooked with real fat. I can’t walk in high heels, but I’m very good at holding still in them. If you put chocolate in front of me, you must not have wanted it in the first place.

 

Visit Anna’s website, like her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter.

 

 

 

Meet Ally!

Princess Sepora of Serubel and King Tarik of Theoria have formed an uneasy truce between their kingdoms since the deadly plague began to rip through Theoria. Since their feelings for each other are entangled in politics and power, they must use their own trusted resources to find common ground.


But when traitors with powerful allies arise from unexpected places, Tarik and Sepora face challenges that will change both of their kingdoms forever. Will they learn whom to trust—including each other—in time to save their kingdoms, their relationship and even their lives?

The cover is nothing to write home about, but this sequel to Nemesis has captured my imagination already! Cheers, Kara S

I have read both of these as ARCs and absolutely LOVED them! I do love the covers but wish that Ally would have had a cover art with King Tarik on it in his paint.
