Two blog posts in one day? Aren’t you guys lucky!! AND another GIVEAWAY. A MG and a YA giveaway in one day? OH I SPOIL YOU.
The Fandom: brilliant, clever and original!
“Cosplay ready, Violet and her friends are at Comic-Con.
They can’t wait to meet the fandom of mega movie, The Gallows Dance. What they’re not expecting is to be catapulted by freak accident into their favourite world – for real. Fuelled by love, guilt and fear, can the friends put the plot back on track and get out? The fate of the story is in their hands…”
Imagine the scene… you’ve gone to a convention, seen your favourite movie star and then BAM THE CEILING COLLAPSES. You wake up and you’re not quite sure what’s going on. You’ve checked your little brother is OK, your friends are around you. Everything seems to be alrite, except you’re now INSIDE the story. You’re INSIDE the story you’ve been fangirling over for ages. You’re actually THERE. You’re in the world. It’s not fake. It’s real.
That’s what happens to Violet. She and her friends (and her little brother) end up inside their favourite world. What follows is an incredible story with a brilliant cast of characters. Ones I love and adore massively.
I really, really, really loved this book. It properly hit me in the face with its brilliance. It’s a story within a story and Anna pulls it off brilliantly. I loved the way both stories unfurl in parallel and you see the story of The Gallows Dance (which btw I would totally read if someone wants to write it… Chicken House, get on it), alongside the story of Fandom. You see Rose’s story and Violet’s story pan out side by side. Violet following in Rose’s footsteps. There are some CREEPY bits in this book – the creepy pods? Hello. Made an impression though. It made a massive impression on me this book. It’s properly good.
The characters are just brilliant. Violet and her merry bunch of friends made my heart very happy. I don’t want to give too much away about the characters because I want you to experience it how I did. There’s Katie though, Katie is EXCELLENT. You’ll probably love her and her swearing. A bit of swearing is always a plus. Made me chuckle indeed.
The emotions are real with this book. I cried. I laughed. I rooted for people. I was freaked out. I was shocked. You’ll feel ALL of the emotions. I guarantee it. But you’ll LOVE it. I certainly did.
Plus. Can we just talk about that cover? *swoon*
(Plus, Anna is a Geordie. YAY GEORDIES!)
Alrite, now time for the exciting bit… THE GIVEAWAY.
