It’s a pleasure to take part in the BlogTour Fireborn: Twelve and the Frozen Forest by Aisling Fowler.
About the Author
Aisling was born in 1985 and wishes that she had grown up in a magical, mountainous kingdom, but was actually raised in Surrey on a diet of books and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her early ‘adventure’ stories involved surprisingly little action and her first novel (3 pages long) was politely declined by publishers at age 11.
After earning a BSc in Biology and working as a support worker and then a nurse, the idea for her debut novel, Fireborn, came to her as she moved back and forth between London and the US. Now based in Hackney, when she is not reading or writing, Aisling loves cooking and plotting adventures (for herself as well as her fictional characters). Fireborn will be published by HarperCollins in 2021. Follow @fowler_aisling on Twitter
About the book
Lyra. Lucy. Percy. Once in a generation, a hero emerges whose story enthralls readers worldwide.
Fireborn is an epic quest, perfect for fans of the His Dark Materials and The School for Good and Evil series, that will spin readers into a magical world like no other–and introduce them to an unforgettable new heroine named Twelve.
Ember is full of monsters. – Twelve gave up her name and identity to train in the art of hunting them–so she says. The truth is much more deadly: she trains to take revenge on those who took her family from her.
But when Twelve’s new home is attacked, she’ll find herself on an unexpected journey, where her hidden past is inescapably intertwined with her destiny–and the very fate of her world.
Twelve is one of many anonymous young people who, by no choice of their own, find themselves alone in the world and brought together to defend their world against the dark forces that seek to destroy them. Chaos and conflict are used to distract and deflect, as the enemy executes a plan to still a valuable weapon.
Twelve and her companions are forced to confront their fears and their truths. The truth they keep hidden from everyone in an attempt to achieve their own agenda. The question is what will happen when they are exposed. Will the pasts and people behind the anonymous identifiers still be part of a team when their true selves are revealed to each other.
That of course will be the make or break question when it comes defending the Hunters, the trainee Hunters and the Lodge. The world of Ember is one filled with monsters, magic, elemental power and betrayal.
Hopefully this is the first of many – I would really like to follow this often conflicted set of characters and their sidekicks. It promises to be the kind of series that creates new generations of readers.
