Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia (coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures series) kicks off the “YA Legion Tour” for her new solo novel Unbreakable, which was released today. The tour will kick-off at Barnes and Noble at the Grove at 7 pm, with young adult authors Alyson Noel, Katie Alender and Marie Lu, and a live musical performance from popular alternative rock artist, Dom Liberati, whose original song, “You Still Haunt Me” accompanies Garcia’s book trailer. In honor of the launch of Unbreakable, Liberati will also be performing a free concert at the Mint after the in-store event.
Garcia will be joined by more than a dozen bestselling authors on her 8 city national tour, including: Ransom Riggs, Rachel Caine, Tahereh Mafi, Lauren Oliver, Margaret Stohl, and Holly Black.
When asked why she wanted to include other authors on her tour, Garcia said, “I love book store and library events — the way I love pizza and hot fudge sundaes, ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ a stack of new books and rainy day to read them. I want my events to be that much fun, and I’m not cool enough to pull that off on my own, so I invited 18 of my favorite YA authors to come on tour for Unbreakable with me.”
Unbreakable is already attracting attention, with forthcoming publication in 17 countries and translation in 13 languages, and actress Candice Accola from the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” is reading the audiobook.
“Tense and deliciously twisty, Unbreakable is a breath-stealing midnight run through some of the creepiest locales I’ve seen rendered in fiction. It’s about forgiveness and redemption, love and loss, and it’s anything but predictable. I loved it,” said Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Unbreakable is an action-packed window into the supernatural as readers follow the journey of Kennedy Waters, a girl who comes home one night and finds her mother dead. Kennedy doesn’t realize paranormal forces are responsible—not until mysterious identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into her room and destroy a deadly spirit sent to kill her. She learns that her mother’s death was no accident, and now Kennedy has to take her place in the Legion—a secret society of ghost hunters formed to protect the world from a vengeful demon. A society whose five members were all murdered on the same night, leaving the Legion in the hands of the next generation: a misfit group with unique skills.
“Supernatural meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Kami Garcia is Joss Whedon’s talent-sister! I didn’t just read Unbreakable; I lived it. When it comes to supernatural suspense, Garcia is the Slayer,” said Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author of Buffy: the Making of a Slayer.
