Hi Kylie,
I'm so glad you liked the ending of SALVAGE! I'm currently working on a companion novel that stars Miyole as a teenager, so although it isn't a direct sequel, you'll get to follow her adventures and catch another glimpse of Ava. We don't have a specific release date yet, but right now Greenwillow is saying that it will likely be out in Fall 2015. I hope you enjoy it!(less)

I just finished working on edits for SOUND, the companion novel to SALVAGE, which is coming out Sept. 22nd. I'm drafting a third novel, which I unfortunately can't talk too much about, because it's still in the early stages. But! I can tell you that it will involve both explosions and feelings.(less)

Hey, folks! Whether you're celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Yule, or just the end of a phenomenally terrible year, it's time to spread a little cheer. If you've followed this blog for a while, you know that each year, I give away books and an honorary charitable donation in December. This year, in recognition of all the people endangered by the hate spread by our president-elect, I've picked ou...

Blight by Alexandra Duncan
"Three for three for Alexandra Duncan! Blight is completely different from her first two books, but just as compellingly readable.

Tempest Torres is about as different a heroine from Ava (of Salvage) as can be, but they share the same sort of arc. B..." Read more of this review »

“Are we always our mistakes? Does anything we do heal them?”
Alexandra Duncan, Salvage

“Perpétue follows my gaze. “They threw you out,” she says. “That doesn’t mean you’re worthless. It only means they didn’t see your worth.”
Alexandra Duncan, Salvage

“There’s what you’re forced to do, there’s what you choose, and everything else—most things—are a mix. At best, you’ll spend your life trying not to get hurt, but trying not to do the hurting, either. You won’t always come through, but it’s the best anyone can do. It’s the trying I’d call good.”
Alexandra Duncan, Salvage
