I just have to apologize once again, on my spotty blog posts. This has been the craziest summer I have had in a long time.
It’s Scifi Monday and I thought I found the perfect book for you–and then I found out that the grammar and spelling were really bad, so I skipped that book and found another. The book I was going to post is free on Kindle, so I will post a link to it at the bottom of this post, so you can check it out.
Now on to today’s book. Sadly, it’s not free on Kindle, but the story sounds so good, that you just might pay money for it. It’s called, Magonia and it was written by Maria Dahvana Headley.
Here is the back matter for the book:
Aza Ray Boyle is drowning in thin air. Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live. So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.
Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.
Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—but as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war between Magonia and Earth is coming. In Aza’s hands lies fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?
It sounds really good and I’m thinking of buying the hardback. The Kindle is $10.99, which is a little steep for reading it on a device. If I’m going to pay that kind of money, I would prefer to hold the book in my hands.
Remember, if you purchase a book, please leave a review. We authors need reviews to sell books.
