Remember my review last week for Undercover Princess? And how I said there would be more Rosewood Chronicles content coming soon? Well, here it is! Today, I have a spotlight for the fifth and last book in this YA fantasy series, Princess Ever After by Connie Glynn! Now, after loving the first book so much, I knew I was going to want to continue with the series. I also knew that there was no way I was going to read three other books before it was time for me to post this, so I opted for a spotlight instead. If you haven’t read any of the Rosewood Chronicles series, I would suggest checking out my earlier review instead.
Of course, I want to thank The Write Reads team and the publisher, Penguin, for giving me a spot on this tour. I always appreciate it!
Today, I’m bringing you another The Write Reads blog tour spotlight! This time, I’ll be featuring a fantasy novel that sounds truly epic. Do you like your fantasy with knights and dark secrets, you should stick around and learn more about The Broken Heart of Arelium by Alex Robins!
I want to thank Dave @ The Write Reads and the author for providing me a free e-ARC in exchange for participation in this tour. It is, as always, much appreciated. Now, let’s get to the spotlight!
Are you a fan of YA dystopian novels? Do you have a Panem-shaped hole in your heart left there after finishing all the Hunger Games books? Then I think you’ll enjoy the spotlight I’ll be doing today as part of another The Write Reads tour!
The Unadjusteds by Marisa Noelle is the first book in a new YA dystopian series. It’s got everything you might want: a feisty heroine, a resistance against a corrupt ruler, and a motley crew of fighters willing to take on the government. The twist in this one is that many of the people in this world have been genetically modified to have superhuman abilities, like the power of flight or impenetrable skin. Though this book wasn’t my cup of tea, I can definitely see the appeal for folks who generally enjoy the genre!

“Sixteen-year-old Silver Melody lives in a world where 80% of the population has modified their DNA. Known as the altereds, those people now possess enhancements like wings, tails, and increased strength or intelligence. Although Silver’s parents created the nanite pill used to deliver these genetic modifications, Silver is proud of her unadjusted state.
However, when the president declares all unadjusteds must take a nanite, Silver has no choice but to flee the city with her father and some friends to prevent the extinction of the unadjusteds.
With Silver’s mother in prison for treason, Silver’s father is the unadjusteds’ only hope at finding a cure. But time is running out as Silver’s father is captured by the president’s almost immortal army. Vicious hellhounds are on Silver’s trail, and her only chance to recover her father involves teaming up with a new group of unlikely friends before all humanity is lost.”
MARISA NOELLE is the writer of middle grade & young adult novels in the genres of science-fiction, fantasy & mental health. Her books include THE UNADJUSTEDS, THE RISE OF THE ALTEREDS, THE MERMAID CHRONICLES – SECRETS OF THE DEEP & THE SHADOW KEEPERS. She is a mentor for the Write Mentor program that helps aspiring MG & YA authors. When she’s not writing or reading or watching movies, she enjoys swimming. In the pool she likes to imagine she could be a mermaid and become part of some of her make-believe words. Despite being an avid bookworm from the time she could hold a book, being an author came as a bit of a surprise to her as she was a bit of a science geek at school.
Marisa had plenty of ideas for career and still regrets not moving to Hawaii to train dolphins and pretend the real world didn’t exist. Struggling with anxiety led her to the field of psychology. Heavily influenced by underdog movies such as The Karate Kid she realized her mission in life was to help other people, through any medium. Embarking on a psychology degree, she wanted to emulate her hero, Jodie Foster, from Silence of the Lambs and actually tried to secure work experience at Broadmoor. Thankfully she left the idea of criminal profiling behind, but uses many of these aspects in her novels.
Now a full-time novelist, she lives in Surrey, UK with her husband and three children.

Today on the blog, I’m doing something a little different. I’m doing a spotlight for a book on a #TheWriteReads tour! I’m excited to be able to share some information about a beautiful looking book called A Sparrow Alone by Mimi Eichmann. If you’re a fan of historical fiction, stick around for more details.
“1890’s Colorado. Desperate following her mother’s sudden death, thirteen-year-old Hannah Owens apprentices as domestic help with a wealthy doctor’s family in Colorado Springs. When the doctor declares bankruptcy and abandons his family to finance his mistress Pearl DeVere’s brothel, however, Hannah is thrown into a vortex of gold mining bonanzas and busts, rampant prostitution, and the economic, political and cultural upheavals of the era. Two of Cripple Creek’s most colorful historic characters, Winfield Scott Stratton, eccentric owner of the richest gold mine in Cripple Creek, and Pearl DeVere, the beautiful madam of The Old Homestead, come to life as this old-fashioned, coming-of-age saga unfolds, the first of two historical fiction novels by debut author Mim Eichmann — a tribute to the women who set the stage for women’s rights.”
A graduate from the Jordan College of Music at Butler University, in Indianapolis, IN, Chicago-based author Mim Eichmann has found that her creative journey has taken her down many exciting, interwoven pathways as an award-winning published lyricist and songwriter, professional folk musician, ballet choreographer and now, historical fiction author. Her debut historical fiction novel, “A Sparrow Alone”, published by Living Springs Publishers on April 15, 2020, has met with extremely enthusiastic reviews and “Muskrat Ramble” which will be published on March 23, 2021, is its much-anticipated sequel.
