Today I’m offering double feature of promo posts. First up: Empire’s Hostage by Marian L. Thorpe. The second instalment in the Empire’s Legacy trilogy, which delves into a meticulously wrought world strictly divided across gender lines follows our heroine Lena as she travels north of the wall. It’s engaging, it’s imaginative, and best of all, it can be read as a standalone!
Oh, and did I mention that there’s a giveaway? An INTERNATIONAL giveaway? Check out the rules and enter below.
