Announcing V.E. Schwab’s Digital Londons Tour

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. SchwabV. E. Schwab, author of A Darker Shade of Magic, is going on a digital tour of London!

Here are a few words from the author about the upcoming tour:

In A Darker Shade of Magic (which comes out on February 24th!!) my heroes, Kell and Lila, flit through magical doors to visit three very different versions of London: There’s Red London, which flourishes with life and magic; Grey London, which has no magic but one very mad King; and White London, where people fight to control magic and the magic fights back.

While each of these three cities if full of its own twists, turns, and secrets—they are also full of blogs! Yes, each city is home to some very special blogs and I’ll be embarking on a whirlwind tour through all of them starting on February 17th. And since, as Kell and Lila learn, it’s dangerous to linger, I’ll only have time to answer one question at each stop (though a small cup of tea might also be imbibed—I will be in a London, after all).

Want to follow me on this mad dash? Check out the schedule below! And know this: some blogs will be giving away a prize package of a copy of A Darker Shade of Magic and a double-sided poster (signed by me!) that features the US and UK covers.

You can also track me through twitter!

Arctic Rising on NPR

Tobias Buckell’s new novel Arctic Rising received a great review from Alan Cheuse on NPR’s All Things Considered. He says, “If you count on good thrillers to be told in clear, engaging prose and made up of interesting psychology, state-of-the-art research and swiftly moving plots, you couldn’t be in a better place.”

Listen to the full review on NPR’s website.

About Arctic Rising: Global warming has transformed the Earth, and it’s about to get even hotter. The Arctic Ice Cap has all but melted, and the international community is racing desperately to claim the massive amounts of oil beneath the newly accessible ocean.

Enter the Gaia Corporation. Its two founders have come up with a plan to roll back global warming. They plan to terraform Earth to save it from itself—but in doing so, they have created a superweapon the likes of which the world has never seen.

Anika Duncan is an airship pilot for the underfunded United Nations Polar Guard. She’s intent on capturing a smuggled nuclear weapon that has made it into the Polar Circle and bringing the smugglers to justice.

Anika finds herself caught up in a plot by a cabal of military agencies and corporations who want Gaia Corporation stopped. But when Gaia Corp loses control of their superweapon, it will be Anika who has to decide the future of the world. The nuclear weapon she has risked her life to find is the only thing that can stop Gaia Corp’s weapon after it falls into the wrong hands.
