Remember that time a review copy saved me from the agonies of a terrible library book? I had loved the first book in that series, Shallows by Denver Evans, and book two, Phantoms, was just as good. 😀
Guess what??!! Book three is coming out in just a month, and I get to show you the cover! ❤ ❤
But first, I splurged this month and bought myself paperbacks of the first books. Aren’t they gorgeous?!! 😀
Okay, cover reveal time for real now.
Eeeee! I love the landscape and everything, but LOOK AT THE CUTE PEOPLE!!! 😀 This one is gonna be so amazing in paperback.
About the book:
Emerson and Saria find themselves drawn into investigating a conspiracy larger than any the Cayan Islands–or even the mainland–has ever seen.
Legends is a clean YA fantasy novel with elements of paranormal and romance. It is the last book in the trilogy.
In celebration of the shiny cover, Denver offered to answer a few questions about this book. (She’s so awesome. 😀 Thanks, Denver!)
Who is your favorite character in Legends?
It’s a little hard to pick a favorite character in this one. Emerson is pretty high up there, of course, but I really like Saria’s spunk. I guess it’s sort of a tie between the two of them? There are also some pretty fun side characters… So hard to decide. I’ll stick with the tie, I guess.
Also, if you’re an Emria shipper, you’re going to enjoy this book. Just saying.
Was it different writing about them on the mainland after the first two books taking place mostly at sea?
They’re at sea quite a bit in the first half of the book, hopping between islands, trying to stay one step ahead of pursuers while trying to help Ianthe (the Pirate King). When they’re on the mainland, though I had fun with taking them through different geography. The Ageless are a little out of their element on land, but they bravely make the best of it. Everyone finds the woods a little creepy, so it was fun creating that atmosphere. So yes, it was different, but a fun kind of different.
If this trilogy were a movie, who would you cast as the main characters?
From the very beginning of book 1, Emerson has been Andrew Garfield, hands down. Saria has been a little harder for me to pinpoint, but I’m thinking Odeya Rush. To be honest, Carrie Fisher would be a great face for Emerson’s mother. *sad eyes* Possibly Lucas Till for Elton (although I’m really having a hard time picturing him with a mustache…) And for Flake, I think a younger-looking David Harewood with some hair dye and a set of marvelous clear blue contact lenses would be super cool!
And last but not least, she’s offering a giveaway of the entire trilogy on Kindle! Enter HERE.
I can’t wait to read this book, and now I really need it to be a movie too. 😉
Have you read any of the books in the Shallows trilogy?
