Upcoming Book ALERT!!: A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney

Available: September 25, 2018

Hello book lovers!
Take a look at that cover will you! It is absolutely gorgeous and it caught my attention immediately. I'm a stickler when it comes to covers. If you've read some of my past posts, you know that I strongly believe a good book can get lost when it's represented by a terrible cover. Regardless of how this book ultimately turns out, this author has hooked me so let's hope it delivers!

A Blade so Black is a re-telling of Alice in Wonderland with a WOC as the protagonist! How exciting is that? It's written by a debut author, and as you can see, it isn't set for release until later this year. I for one am ready for some fresh new voices telling out-of-the-box stories that feature POC. So far, this seems like it'll be right down my alley.

I'll check back on A Blade so Black closer to it's release date, but until then check out the blurb below and let me know in the comment section if this is a book that you'll be adding to your reading list come September.

The first time the Nightmares came, it nearly cost Alice her life. Now she's trained to battle monstrous creatures in the dark dream realm known as Wonderland with magic weapons and hardcore fighting skills. Yet even warriors have a curfew.

Life in real-world Atlanta isn't always so simple, as Alice juggles an overprotective mom, a high-maintenance best friend, and a slipping GPA. Keeping the nightmares at bay is turning into a full-time job. But when Alice's handsome and mysterious mentor is poisoned, she has to find the antidote by venturing deeper into Wonderland than she’s ever gone before. And she'll need to use everything she's learned in both worlds to keep from losing her head . . . literally.
