I am super excited to be hosting:

T. RAE MITCHELL

Bestselling author T. Rae Mitchell is an incurable fantasy junkie who loves playing make-believe whenever possible. She is best known for her young adult fantasy, Fate’s Fables, which can be found on numerous Amazon Top 100 Best Seller lists, such as Coming of Age Fantasy and Fairy Tales & Folklore.

The book she is showcasing is FATE’S FABLES SPECIAL EDITION: ONE GIRL’S JOURNEY THROUGH 8 UNFORTUNATE FAIRY TALES.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Fate Floyd is trapped within a darkly enchanted fairy tale world bound by the Book of Fables. Her only means of escape is to travel through the book’s eight unfortunate fairy tales and change them into happily-ever-afters. Can she survive and make it all the way to the book’s bitter end to create her own happy ending with the boy of her dreams? Perfect for fans of The Lunar Chronicles and A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Synopsis:
Mori is out for revenge. Imprisoned in the English countryside, with her brothers held as leverage, she’s never felt angrier or more helpless. When an opportunity for escape arises, Mori takes it and flees back to the streets of London, where she is finally able to plot the demise of her recently freed father and his cohorts.
But after a bittersweet reunion with Lock, she discovers that he may not be the ally he once was. In the face of blackmail, threats, and Lock’s noble attempts to thwart her crusade, Mori has an impossible decision to make.

Can Mori wash the blood from her hands and walk away? Or will her final fall from grace be the end of everyone she loves?
