Today I have a quick event write-up to share with you all. Anyone who knows me will know how much I love the Red Queen series. As soon as I found out Victoria Aveyard was coming back to the U.K. I’ve kept my eyes peeled for the official announcement and tickets going on sale, I grabbed one as soon as I saw it, I had no trouble getting out of bed at 1:30AM to buy it. Even though I had to wait an extra two weeks, I bought a ticket and book bundle as the tour exclusive had beautiful blue sprayed edges and included a bookmark and poster. I never say no to bookish swag and both the poster and bookmark are AMAZING and match my awesome War Storm tote Orion were giving away in the pre order campaign.

An evening with: Victoria Aveyard, Alwyn Hamilton, Laure Eve and Alice Broadway

InstagramCapture_16d53915-2c59-489e-99a6-5e295a51854fBack in August I got the chance to finally meet Victoria Aveyard, author of the bestselling Red Queen series. I bought a ticket as soon as the event was announced, I’ve loved these books from the start and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet the genius behind them. A couple of weeks before the event Alwyn, Laure and Alice were announced.

The event was chaired by Rebel of the Sands author Alwyn Hamilton, they talked about their respective books, characters etc. and told the audience about the first book they remember writing when they were children. They all sound amazing, trust me! Alice revealed the title to Ink’s sequel (not sure if I’m allowed to say what it is here), Alwyn then opened up the floor to questions from the audience.

After the talk an Q&A there was a chance to meet the authors and get books signed. While I was waiting for the queue to die down I had a chat to Katie Webber, who is always lovely. If you haven’t read her debut, Wing Jones, please do! Victoria is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and kindly signed all my books, including my collectors edition of Red Queen and let me have a photo with her. I also got my copy of Ink signed by Alice and Fearsome Dreamer by Laure. Alwyn had already signed my copies of Rebel and Traitor, she’s always fun to chat to though.

Goodreads synopsis:

“In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.
As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.
When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.”
