    The Immortal Circus: Act Two – Book Blast, Guest Post & Giveaway

    TheImmortalCircusActTwoBLAST

    I had the chance to read THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS: ACT TWO just a little bit early and it was amazing. Even darker, more suspenseful, more heartbreaking, with shocks and surprises that you might not see coming.

    Yes, it was that awesome.

    So I just had to take part in the book blast today to help spread the word about its release in Kindle Serial format. Episode One just downloaded to my Kindle and I’m so very tempted to read it right now!

    After being “Team Summer Court” on the blog tour for the first book in this series, I’m so thrilled to have Mab, Ringmaster of the Cirque des Immortels and Queen of the Winter Court, stop by to share a short guest post as part of this book blast.

    Well, I say thrilled… if thrilled actually means terrified. Because the one thing I know about Mab is that she’s terrifying.

    But I’ll say no more about that….

    I also have some information about this second book in the series, THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS: ACT TWO, places where you can find it online and a little bit of information about the author and book one.

    And with its stunning cover, its description which hints at dark things to come in this sequel and the even darker things that Mab alludes to in Vivienne’s past, I am so totally stoked to be able to share this book on my blog on its release day.

    Now let me turn things over to the Ringmaster…

    Guest Post

    Mab – Ringmaster Extraordinaire and Circus Fashionista

    Hello loves,A few months have passed since we did our last tour, and oh, how I’ve missed you all.

    This week, I am pleased to announce the next installment in our little show. Although it pains me to admit that we will not be doing a full blog tour, I am sure the tale ACT TWO weaves will keep you entertained. So many of you were dying to know more about Vivienne’s past. In fact, many people seem to be dying when it comes to Vivienne’s past but…I’d hate to spoil her surprise. Needless to say, this will be a show she will never forget.

    And for those of you who need more than pretty words to tempt them, I am also hosting a giveaway. Five winners will receive Immortal Circus trading cards and a signed bookplate. One lucky winner will also get a signed copy of book one.

    Six prizes, six winners. Six is my favorite number.

    Step right up, loves. ACT TWO is just beginning….

    Kisses,
    Mab

    Title: THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS: ACT TWO (The Immortal Circus #2)
    Author: A.R. Kahler
    Publisher: 47North
    Release date: June 11, 2013
    Format: Kindle serial eBook (current). Paperback edition to be released.

    Vivienne is almost content with her new life in the Cirque des Immortels. She has moved up from selling cotton candy to telling fortunes, she has a gorgeous, magical boyfriend, Kingston…and no one has been murdered since the clash between the otherworldly Courts. Her life under the faerie big top would be perfect, in fact, if not for the nightmares and visions that compel her to seek and confront her half-remembered past. But for Viv, not knowing her past may well be a blessing. There’s a reason she ran away. But can she truly escape herself?

    The second act of the fantastically evocative Cirque des Immortels series, The Immortal Circus: Act Two draws readers further into a world that’s at once wonderful, seductive…and deadly.

    About A.R. Kahler

    Most little boys dream of running away to join the circus.

    Alex didn’t just dream it: he did it. But then, he rarely lets a good dream pass him by.

    In the past six years he’s toured and trained across America and Europe. He’s performed in Amsterdam, taught trapeze in Madrid, studied in Glasgow and even had a stint as assistant to Holly Black and Cassandra Clare in New England. He’s constantly on the lookout for new places to explore and new worlds to invent. He’s a Sagittarius fueled by full moons and espresso. The way to his heart is a latte and fan art. Just for the record.

    THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS, book one in his Cirque des Immortels series, is now available from 47North. ACT TWO releases today, June 11, 2013.

    MARTYR, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series, THE HUNTED, is set to be published October 28, 2014 by Spencer Hill Press.

    About Book One

    THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS COVER

    Title: THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS (The Immortal Circus #1)
    Author: A.R. Kahler
    Publisher: 47North
    Release date: December 4, 2012 (serial eBook); January 29, 2013 (paperback)
    Formats: Kindle eBook, Paperback

    Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can’t quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded—especially not when she realizes the devilishly attractive ringleader Mab is the Faerie Queen of legend…and that she and the rest of the troupe are locked in an age-old rivalry between the otherworldly Courts.

    Aided by her friends Kingston—a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart—and his smart-ass assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past—and future—than she bargains for.

    The show’s just beginning.

    …My Thoughts

    I am so unbelievably excited to be able to share this AMAZING cover for A. R. Kahler’s THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS ACT TWO. While it’s not technically a reveal, as it was posted on Amazon the other day, I just had to create a spotlight post for it, as I think it’s stunningly beautiful.

    And while I loved the cover for the first book in this awesome series, I L.O.V.E. the cover for the sequel at least one hundred times more.

    The shades of blue really stand out against the dark background. The bodies draped over one another make for a very interesting and dynamic base for the solo female performer. And even with their presence on this cover, she manages to take the spotlight.

    I love how both covers in the series are simple but incredibly beautiful. I love how, in both, the focus is on the performer but the bright white, simple yet elegant font used for the title also draws the eye.

    I love how the light source leaves some of the performers in shadow yet highlights the main performer, making the blue in her outfit pop against the dark background even more.

    But that’s what I think…. And if this cover turns out to be just as gorgeous as the cover for the first book in print, I’ll definitely have to pick up a physical copy for my collection.

    Anyway…

    As I am such a huge fan of this author and his series, I wanted to offer up a copy of the first book in the series for giveaway along with my post. This way, yet another person can suffer the wait for the next installment to be released, much like I am.

    And if you haven’t yet heard about this author or the first book in the series, here’s just a little bit about them both.
