Happy book birthday to <em>Never Fade</em>!
If you've read The Darkest Minds, you know just how gifted our very own Alex Bracken is at bringing characters to life. And you're also probably DYING to know what happens next, because That Ending! Alex spent so much time building up these awesome characters, making them feel like real people I knew and loved and then—BAM.
Chubs. Zu. Liam!!!!
What the heck happens next for the Ruby and the gang?
Thankfully, the wait is over. Never Fade is out TODAY!
I had the privilege of reading this one early, and boy are you all in for a treat. This is such a fantastic sequel, and like book one, it will tug at your heartstrings. Ruby is back, as are many favorites from the first installment. There's also a host of new characters, all equally awesome. Above all, Alex knows her readers are smart and she trusts them to pull the pieces together. This book is a joy to read—from unraveling mysteries alongside Ruby and debating who to trust, to the action-packed plot and devastating world the characters must navigate.
But enough gushing. What I—we—really want to do is congratulate Alex.
So a million congrats, Alex! We Pub Crawl gals know just how hard you work. How you manage to juggle writing and a full time job. How you still carve out time to answer industry questions here on the blog and reader questions about TDM over on your tumblr. Thank you for sharing your passion for stories and words and characters that leap from the page with the world.
We are all so, so proud of you, and wish you—and Never Fade—tons of success.
