We are SUPER EXCITED to be doing this! We were asked to create scents for book characters-- a first for us, and a real pleasure. The book comes out Nov. 17th, and the blog tour starts then too. We suggest following it, because there will be a book-scents giveaway! You can order the book in handsomely physical form or ebook here.
Gabriel's City. by Laylah Hunter, is a wonderful YA fantasy novel about a wastrel aristocrat playboy and the legendary street-rat murderer for hire that makes him a better person.* No, really. It's about the power of telling stories, the power of belief, the power of faith in other people, and best friends falling in love. There's definitely violence and bloody stuff and gritty street life and bad people doin' bad things. The fantasy is low, the degree of magic is left up to you the reader to decide, the worldbuilding is lush, and the language is beautiful. This is a writer who is truly an artist with words, and we're not just saying that because we are RL friends. You'll see.
* Your mileage of how much better a person may vary, but Ariel likes Colin a lot better after Gabriel gets to him.
