I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally share this post with you all. 😍
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I finally get to invite you all to be part of the blog tour for The Black Veins by Ashia Monet, an YA urban fantasy that is going to change urban YA fantasy game as we know it and a book that I love with my whole heart.
I had the privilege of reading an early copy of The Black Veins. Know that when I say this, I mean it wholeheartedly and with no lies: The Black Veins is such an incredible book, and a story that I enjoyed and loved from its very first word to its very last. I was enthralled the whole time. The Black Veins is an accomplishment and an inspired debut; I’m absolutely in love with it.
If you love:
- urban fantasy
- a story about queer teenagers of colour
- with power great enough to destroy the world as they know it (but are still teens at heart)
- found family
- no romantic arc
Then read on, because you’ll love The Black Veins and you’ll definitely want to be a part of this blog tour.
About The Black Veins
Sixteen-year-old Blythe is one of seven Guardians: magicians powerful enough to cause worldwide panic with a snap of their fingers. But Blythe spends her days pouring latte art at her family’s coffee shop, so why should she care about having apocalyptic abilities?
She’s given a reason when magician anarchists crash into said coffee shop and kidnap her family.
Heartbroken but determined, Blythe knows she can’t save them alone. A war is brewing between two magician governments and tensions are too high. So, she packs up her family’s bright yellow Volkswagen, puts on a playlist, and embarks on a road trip across the United States to enlist the help of six strangers whose abilities are unparalleled—the other Guardians.
Release date: July 17th 2019
