Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series, is going on tour for her solo novel Unbreakable. Furthermore, she is bringing along some of your favorite YA authors!
The YA Legion tour is hitting 8 cities and includes 18 YA authors, including: Alyson Noel, Lauren Oliver, Margaret Stohl, Ransom Riggs, Marie Lu, and Amber Benson to name a few, who will be at various stops on the tour. The LA stop will also feature Dom Liberati performing “You Still Haunt Me,” the song from the Unbreakable book trailer.
When we asked Kami why she invited other authors, she said: “I love book store and library events — the way I love pizza and hot fudge sundaes, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries, a stack of new books and rainy day to read them. I want my events to be that much fun, and I’m not cool enough to pull that off on my own. So I invited 18 of my favorite YA authors to come on tour for UNBREAKABLE with me. I certainly didn’t invite them just so I could fangirl over them. Because that would be wrong…”
Unbreakable is the first novel in the Legion series, which releases on October 1. The novel follows Kennedy Waters who comes home one night and finds her mother dead. She doesn’t realize that paranormal forces are responsible — until mysterious identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into her room and destroy a deadly spirit sent to kill her. Kennedy learns that her mother’s death was no accident, and now she has to take her place in the Legion of the Black Dove–a secret society whose five members were all murdered on the same night, leaving the Legion in the hands of the next generation: a misfit group with unique skills.
Fans attending the tour stops will score free swag and if they pre-order or buy the book from the store, they can enter a raffle to win a $50 gift card, exclusive Unbreakable jewelry, and more swag.
