My good friend and complete ROCK STAR, Amanda Havard, has a new book out today. Aaaack!! So excited for this one! I read the first two books in the Survivors series last summer when I first met Amanda in Nashville at UtopYA con 2012. She is seriously aca-mazing and so much fun, so brilliant, and so full of great energy to be around! I fell in love with her person over drinks on the patio of the Holiday Inn where she schooled me on how she'd created her very own interactive book app called the Immersedition--and then came home and read her books and fell in love with her words.
Book 3 in her series, Body & Blood, is out today. I had the privilege of reading this one a couple of months early as an ARC and it is sooooo good!! Sexy and witchy and magical. You need to pick this one up! Lots of hot book boyfriends to choose from too! I am #TeamEverett and a little bit #TeamMark as well.
About BODY & BLOOD:
How many answers you seek are just a part of you, waiting to be found?
The game has changed.
Fresh from her first brush with mortality, a fragile Sadie Matthau is playing human with Cole Hardwick while the Survivors endure unimaginable tragedy. Wrought with the first deaths of their own kind, a tyrant who will torture them, and an opponent more terrifying than anyone could have foreseen, the Survivors are facing their end.
Told from three points of view, The Survivors: Body & Blood is a bloodcurdling, mind-bending, heart-stopping ride. As Sadie and the Winters uncover more enemies, more history, and more answers, they find themselves brought closer together and ripped further apart. And all the while, a haunting Alexander Raven lurks at the edge of Sadie s lifeline, at the darkening fringes of her mind.
As the Survivors descend into chaos, Sadie realizes a painful truth: the deepest of secrets leave the darkest of marks.
Caught between a terrifying fantasy and her own grim reality, Body & Blood is the story of Sadie s dance with her demons, future, past, and present.
And did I mention how awesome Amanda is? She even wrote her own soundtrack for the series!

About AMANDA HAVARD:
Amanda Havard thinks in stories. She writes books and songs, tells stories to people over coffee or in elaborate iPad apps, in short films or subtle photographs. Stories are her life. THE SURVIVORS: BODY & BLOOD is her third novel, and is an amalgamation of all of her storytelling love combined. Originally from Dallas, Texas, she now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, a place where creativity drips from the sap of the trees, radiates from the attitude of the population, and seeps from the concrete. The inventor of the Immersedition™ interactive book app, Havard is always looking for the next best story-- and the most innovative way to tell it.
