Blood and Flowers
by Penny Blubaugh
To be released March 1st, 2011 <-- my birthday!
Three years ago, Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe. With time, this motley band of mortals and fey, puppeteers and actors, becomes the loving family Persia never had, and soon Persia not only discovers a passion for theater but also falls in love with one of the other Outlaws. Life could not be more perfect.
Until an enemy makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee their world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows. With bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is far from the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for....
Following up her critically acclaimed Serendipity Market, Penny Blubaugh has created a beautiful and mysterious world where anything can happen—especially what you least expect.
This one's releasing on my birthday, which makes me think it must be a birthday present just for me. Right? I mean, look at that cover. Oh, my. Also, it sounds a little gritty, and it's about an acting troupe with faeries, and that sounds absolutely up my alley. NEED. IT.
