Book Tour: Fracture, by Ryan Mark.

Book Tour: Fracture, by Ryan Mark.

Today, I am delighted to be taking part in the Blog Tour for new book FRACTURE by Ryan Mark. Fracture is the sequel to dystopian young adult book TREMOR.

Fracture could be read as a stand alone, but I would highly recommend reading Tremor first, as it is amazing!! You may remember I reviewed and raved about Tremor a while ago. You can refresh your memoryHERE

 I was so very happy and honoured to be asked to join this blog tour. As I really loved the Author’s first book, I was sure that Fracture was also going to be amazing. I wasn’t wrong!!

My review of Fracture will follow soon, but today I want to share the details of Fracture with you. 

I was also lucky enough to be able to interview one of the characters from the books. But before that, here are the details of Ryan Mark’s books:

 

Tremor:

Description:

ISBN: 1906954836

 The life William knew has gone. His world has been left devastated by the Fossil War. All major governments have been wiped out and the land is now under the control of the company Terrafall. Although Terrafall’s intentions seem honest, William wonders if the company will live up to its promises and stop the tremors, which have been plaguing the Earth since the end of the war. And can Terrafall really find out who is behind the recent wave of abductions?  

 When someone close to William disappears, he decides it’s time to take matters into his own hands. But in a land that is on the verge of tearing itself apart, is it a life worth fighting for? If your world was falling apart, how far would YOU go to save it?

If you want a reminder of my review of Tremor, you can read it:  HERE

Fracture:

Description:

ISBN: 1910565393

The Earth is starting to recover from the onslaught of destruction left behind by the tremors and Terrafall. William’s life is settling and he has finally found a place where he feels he belongs. With the opportunity to flourish, the Haven Development has been able to secure the future of its lands and people, bringing forth a period of peace and stability.  

Yet something sinister quakes beneath the surface, hiding in the shadows, unknown to William and the Haven Development. Not a tremor, but a new enemy who threatens to tear apart everything William and his friends have fought so hard to protect. The peace is about to fracture…

Fracture

 

Now that you are totally gripped, here is my lovely interview with one of the characters from both books, I introduce to you Igraine

What do you remember about life before the tremors began?

Fond memories fill my heart when I think about this question. Memories of my husband, memories of my youth, memories of a time less tragic than this one. Oh how lovely it would be to go back in time and live those years again! However, although I hold these memories close to my heart, I do appreciate this new future, and I will not take what I have now for granted. Life is getting better, and I’m glad to be a part of this new world.

What does an ideal world look like through your eyes?

 A world where everyone can live in harmony with the planet would be outstanding! I believe a bright and comfortable future can be achieved with hard work and cooperation, and the Haven Development is a testament to this!

What is your greatest fear?

Seeing my husband’s death, yet again.

Have you any regrets in life?

 That I couldn’t save my husband, couldn’t stop Terrafall when I watched them rise to power. I had the chance to look into its management during its early days, but I was naïve and too wrapped up in my own problems. I regret this every day of my life.

Are you and Branimir close?

Of course, I am his deputy and will always stand by his side. He has done a huge amount of good for the survivors of the war.

If you could go back in time, before everything happened, what advice would you give yourself?

I would’ve looked into the rulership of Terrafall, would’ve tried to prevent my husband’s death. But that is a fleeting dream, one which I cannot succeed on. This question, though good, fills me with a sense of melancholy.

Are you proud of what the Haven Development has achieved?

Oh of course, what has been achieved is wonderful! The Haven Development is trying to show that there is hope, that all is not dark and miserable. We have built a future out of the destruction, and are trying to show that we can live with the Earth in harmony. I will always stand by what we have done, and I will protect it with my life if I have to. We need a future.

Thank you Igraine and Author Ryan Mark for this lovely and heartfelt interview, I appreciate your honesty and wish you all the best of luck for the future.

scavenger hunt

Description:

Jackson Landis kept secrets. It’s how he got girls into bed, the grades he wanted, and a reputation for being the life of the party.

But now he’s dead, and no one knows how or why. Especially not the four girls whose secrets he protected. Secrets so scandalous they could cause each girl to lose something valuable. Secrets so dark, someone may have killed for them.

The four girls – a campus drug dealer, an overweight bookworm, a closeted lesbian, and a spoiled princess have one thing in common – they’re terrified the things Jackson knew may not have died with him. As Reggie, Haddie, Val, and Livie try to piece together her own role in Jackson’s death, each girl realizes Jackson had some not-so-pretty skeletons of his own.

Which makes a girl wonder, who really wanted Jackson Landis dead?

Officer McMichaels: Mr. Brown, do you work for Regina Walker?

Marcus: Work for her? She’s broke. How would she pay anyone to do anything?

McMichaels: Are you in love with her?

Marcus: What the hell does this–

McMichaels: Sit down and answer the question.

Marcus: Fine. I’ll answer. That’s none of your goddamned business.

McMichaels: Was Regina sleeping with Jackson Landis?

Marcus: If she was, I never got my invite to the threesome, so how the fuck would I know?

McMichaels: For your own good, I suggest you start cooperating and answer my questions.

Marcus: You want to know if Reggie was doing Jackson, ask her.

McMichaels: You’re wasting my time.

Marcus: I could’ve told you that before you hauled me in here—saved us both time.

McMichaels: Get out of here, but expect me to find out what you know, Marcus. You can lie, but I’ll find out in the end.

Marcus: Am I supposed to be afraid or something? Was that a threat?

McMichaels: We’ll talk again soon, Mr. Brown.

Does Marcus sound suspicious to you????
