Facebook Party Monday November 23 12-2 pm EST
Please join us to celebrate the release of Crestfall: A Novel of Earth and Fire by Lily St. John McKee.
Crestfall is a dark fantasy with a heart of love—for the earth, its creatures and plants, for people who strive, care, and face down fear. Its young heroine, Aria Andrews, interrupts her medieval history studies to attend her sister’s funeral in a town on the rugged coast of Newfoundland. Her estranged twin was murdered, and Aria becomes a suspect before setting out to uncover the brutal truth with the help of her brother Fynn, his girlfriend Sophie (a witch), and forthright Bennet Halfnight, a handsome detective. All three Andrews siblings have possessed unworldly natural powers; Aria uses hers to pursue an old antagonist and confront new ones: shape-shifters and werewolves in this startling romantic novel of beastly gore and human tenderness.
Lily St. John McKee was born November 24, 1987, in Washington, D.C. Finding refuge in
books from childhood challenges, she graduated cum laude from Ohio’s Muskingum University in 2011 and earned a master’s degree at Bath Spa University in England. She traveled widely—to Costa Rica, Iceland, Patagonia, Egypt, and Newfoundland, the setting for her novel Crestfall, which she finished in the autumn of 2014. In the winter Lily McKee fell ill and passed away on March 19, 2015.
Please join her family to celebrate the release of Lily's posthumous novel.
Book details, fun facts, and giveaways will be offering during this event.
