I’ve finally got my hot little hands on the full dust jacket of Across A Star-Swept Sea, which means that I can at last share with you some of the things that early readers are saying about it. I’m so grateful and humbled that these writers I admire have offered up their thoughts on Persis, Justen, and the world of New Pacifica. Check it out:
“Across a Star-Swept Sea is, like its main character Persis Blake, a delight. Intrigue, romance, beautiful world-building, nuanced characters, and timely, intriguing questions come together to make this the perfect read. I loved it!”
– Ally Condie, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Matched trilogy
“An imaginative and energetic retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel–sheer fun!”
– Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author of the Pink Carnation series
“Delicious romance, class warfare, and genetic engineering–Diana Peterfreund will ensnare you with this sci-fi twist to a classic story.”
–Cinda Williams Chima, bestselling author of the Heir Chronicles and Seven Realms series
And here’s what they will look like on the back of the dust jacket: Oh, the prettiness!
A little less than three months now, guys. I’m seriously dying here. But you can pre-order it at any of these fine retailers:
And don’t forget to check out “The First Star to Fall,” a prequel novella that you don’t have to wait for at all. If you want to know who Persis was before she became the infamous Wild Poppy, then this is the story for you. If you want luaus, fancy frocks, and just a wee bit of regicide, then this is definitely the book for you.
