And with no further ado, the fourth book from TDB to hit the shelves and the second from Nicole! Not quite scream fiction nor teen fiction exactly, Unlikely Places is another to fall under the everything-in-between fiction along with A Very Mini-Spartan Story. Fairy princesses and battles galore! We at Duchess Books do not condone excessive genre-hopping, as it may not be for everyone. But now, sit back and enjoy the...summary!
Satrina, Seelie princess and now newbie human, didn't exactly know how far she'd have to get to escape her family and their twisted lives, but she figured university in LA would be quite far enough. If only she had been right...
An encounter with the dark and mysterious Deirdre, sent to spy on her by an unknown employer, sends her and her new human life reeling. Soon enough the two find themselves on a magical adventure they'll never forget, culminating in a violent face-off between their two worlds--but where will they find their own alliances lie in the end?
Unlikely Places will be entirely G-rated, though it took a push from Lia (shut up, Lia). Yay!
Meet the author!
Nicole Thompson is happy to be able to tell people that she has now written not one, not two, but three novels. And she always makes sure to say it that way, though not always in the third person. She also claims that someday she may actually settle with one genre. After she's passed through another three or four--historical? Science fiction? Who knows.
Pastimes include musical theater, cheerleading, and refining her master plan to take over the world. "Wait," she interrupts. "Did you just quote me on that?"
Lia Sadako, as webmaster, proudly takes all responsibility for bad jokes and jabs toward the author. Love you.
Nicole is very disappointed with the alterations of her bio, but Lia doesn't really care.
"There's just one thing left to do," Maeve noted gravely, and Satrina leaned forward, anticipating the human's next words.
"Shopping spree!" Maeve giggled from where she now somehow stood, precariously balanced on the dresser and taping some (probably famous) male's likeness to the ceiling above her bed. Satrina, still not entirely used to this world, chose to ignore the clear violation of time and space and move on.
Two hours later, Satrina found herself in an excessively froufy and pink--so, so pink--dress shop. And this one was far from the first of that afternoon. Ever since that fateful moment, in which Maeve had an epiphany from atop a dresser, they had traipsed across the neon-lighted city in search of the perfect outfit. And Maeve wasn't going to settle.
PASSION. DECEIT. FAIRY PRINCESSES.
