The Book of the Night Blog Tour: guest post & giveaway

I'm very excited to have The Book of the Night Blog Tour stopping by today with a super yummy guest post from author Pearl North and fab giveaway...

Thank you for having me here today on Word Spelunking. The Book of the Night is the third and final book in my young adult science fiction trilogy set on a world where books and words play important and sometimes unusual roles. The first book is Libyrinth and the second is The Boy From Ilysies.

Since Word Spelunking is focused on books and food, and my trilogy is focused on books and I love food, I thought I'd list my top five favorite desserts, and pair each one with one of my favorite books that I feel goes well with it.

5. Tiramisu -- Smooth and sophisticated, with that coffee kick and a hint of sweetness -- Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ichiguro

4. Chocolate Chip Cookies -- A classic, the faded jeans and sweatshirt of desserts -- The Vor Game by Lois McMaster Bujold

3. Peach Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream -- Summery, yet luscious -- The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

2. Cream Puff Hot Fudge Sundae -- Over the top, but oh, so worth it -- Scaramouch by Raphael Sabatini

1. Chocolate Lava Cake -- Rich, dark and melty, a total sensory experience -- Wicked Gentlemen by Ginn Hale

Pearl North is the author of a trilogy of YA science fiction novels: Libyrinth, The Boy From Ilysies (a Norton Award Finalist), and The Book of the Night. A firm believer in human decency, she loves writing and reading about characters that transcend the limits of who they think they are and what they think is possible. She mentors graduate students in Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, and writes in other genres under different names. A native and life-long resident of the Detroit area, she has never lived more than two miles from Woodward Avenue in her life.

The Book of the Night (Libyrinth #3)
The world of the Libyrinth has experienced a series of wrenching changes. After the Libyrarians and their longtime foes the Singers discovered their common heritage, a young healer named Po found the Lion’s Bloom, an ancient and enormously powerful artifact capable of rewriting reality. 
Behind the mysteries of their shrouded past has always been the legendary Book of the Night. Sought for generations, both feared and revered, it is the key to this world of wonders. When vain, grasping Queen Thela steals the Lion’s Bloom and imperils the very reality of the world, only the Book can heal what she has rent asunder. An epic journey through strange lands, a perilous encounter in a clockwork city, and the revelation of the truth beyond reality will lead those who find the Book to a moment when their world will either be saved...or cease to exist.
