I hope you’re having a great weekend. Last Friday I shared the cover reveal on my bookstagram for a highly anticipated read of mine this year, Anna and the Moonlight Road, the sequel to Anna Undreaming (book one of the Metiks Fade trilogy). Anna Undreaming is a dark, young adult urban fantasy taking place in some alternative universes switching among reality and some dreamy spots. The world-building in that book is exceptionally out-of-the-world (no pun intended) and I’m sucked into Anna’s worlds immediately after a few chapters in.
Thus, I’m beyond thrilled to present you with another exciting book news regarding the sequel of Anna Undreaming, Anna and the Moonlight Road, which will be available in December this year!!! Aside from the cover reveal, I’ll also include the book synopsis and purchase links, as well as an exclusive, spontaneous mini interview with the author–which I have never done before on my blog–in the following content. So sit back, relax, and let’s get started!
Hey guys!!! *waving enthusiastically*
How are you? I hope you’re having a fabulous day. Today I’ve got something really exciting to share with you and believe me, I’ve wanted to tell everyone about this super duper exhilarating book news since I learnt about it last week. 😀
First of all, I’m so honored to be offered a chance to announce the title for one of my all-time-favorite authors, Thomas Welsh‘s (author of Anna Undreaming), upcoming book, the sequel to Anna Undreaming. When he reached out to me via email last Tuesday, I, honestly, was
secretly doing happy dancing in an office with 100 people. LOL
Back to this title announcement, all I can say is that the title and official blurb of the book will definitely prompt you to devour the series. Trust me, I can already feel the epicness of book 2 in Metiks Fade trilogy simply by its title! And my instinct is usually right. 😉
Alright, enough rambling and let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
Anna is a student surviving the city, and she lives by a simple credo, “Never play their game; their game is always rigged.” For every man she has ever known, it’s a saying that has served her well.
That all changes on the night of “The Big Storm,” when Anna is slipped a date rape drug. Though she saves herself and her best friend, Anna is lost to the dark heart of the city and finds herself hunted by The Night Collectors. Unsure if these monsters are real or hallucinations, Anna nonetheless fights them as best she can. The battle attracts a stranger—Teej—who saves her using powers she cannot understand. He explains that she is an Undreamer and possesses the same powers, and in the future, he will not be the one to save her. She will save him.
But Anna is not yet ready to join Teej and stand against The Dreamers. She has difficult decisions of her own to make. Decisions she has always run from. She still has her partner’s suicide letter. It remains unopened. She still wears his ring, though she can’t seem to remember his face.
Anna learns of The Dreamers – artists so preeminent in their respective fields that they can paint, dance, sew or sing new realities – and as she travels through their creations, she learns that there’s as much beauty in the world as there is horror. With a complex conspiracy at work within the community of Dreamers that threatens to undermine reality itself, Anna will have to look deep within herself, and eventually have to face the horrors of her own past, to save her old world as well as her new one.
Anna Undreaming is a dark urban fantasy, and the first book in the The Metiks Fade trilogy.
