Well, you know we love us some LaFevers at Wonderland, yes? She of the courage to keep writing after a really eviscerating review from Kirkus long, long ago. She of the generosity of spirit to share herself and her methods of not just surviving but thriving in a noisy world, together with Mary Hershey at Shrinking Violets Promotions. She of the wonder of Egyptology and Beastology, of the awesome that is both Theodosia Throckmorton and Nathaniel Fludd. She who now has written a novel which is getting quite an excited little buzz, and which has been compared in positively glowing terms to Kristin Cashore's Graceling.
Okay, wait. Back up. What novel compared to Graceling?
Robin's, of course. Imagine: Assasins. Nuns. France. ...and most of all, YA.
