Spark Trilogy

I was thrilled to meet author Rachael Craw today who was in Christchurch particpating in the Word Festival.

Rachael popped in to The Original Children’s Bookshop and happily signed books and chatted. Rachael also kindly gave some bookmarks and posters for both the shop and the high school I work in at nights. I love the wee story samples of  Shield (book 3) which Rachael also gave us. Shield will be out on September First.

Stray (book 2) was the winner in the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults  Children’s Choice category for YA this year. This is fantastic! If you want more information about Rachael or her books then do then check out her website by clicking on her name above.

Thank you so much Rachael for stopping by. I will treasure my own signed copy of Spark.

Spark

Death by design.

Evie doesn’t have a choice. One day she’s an ordinary seventeen year old, grieving for her mother. The next, she’s a Shield, the result of a decades-old experiment gone wrong, bound by DNA to defend her best friend from an unknown killer. The threat could come at home, at school, anywhere. All Evie knows is that it will be a fight to the death. And then there’s Jamie. Irresistible. Off-limits.

Stray

It’s hard to remember hating anything as much as I hate Affinity; a bone-deep loathing for the faceless unknown and the concrete walls of my own DNA. Evie is a Shield: designed to kill in order to protect, and the Affinity Project have finally come for her. But Evie isn’t ready for the sinister organisation to take control of her life, her body, her mind. She isn’t ready to follow their rules about who may live and who must die – not when it condemns the innocent. She has one option: risk losing everything and everyone – including Jamie – and run.

Shield

Evie is out of options. She must comply with the Affinity Project – obey their rules, play their deadly games, give up Jamie. And her losses keep growing. When she decides to help a small group of Shields trying to affect change, Evie finds herself in the firing line. Counsellor Knox is intent on revealing her secrets and shackling her to the Affinity Project for life. To protect her family, Evie must betray those closest to her.
