Eeek!  So, you guys know I had so much fun with The Collector and The Liberator earlier this year.  I'm not just a fan of the books; I adore the author, too!  And now I get to share an official excerpt for the first book in her new series today!  And not only do I have an excerpt, but V is also offering up a giveaway to celebrate the reveal of the first official excerpt from Fire & Flood!  But first, a little about the book:

Add to Goodreads
A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

  8. My brain is officially fried, so I am going to have to come back to this post to read the Fire & Flood excerpt. That's a title I'm really anticipating too, and I know Scholastic has been mum on a lot of the details too. I'm going to link to it in my bookish rounds (ugh, can't believe I missed it before -- sorry :( ) and then return on Wednesday. I hope. Did the excerpt live up to your expectations? Especially having read the author's previous work?
