THIRTY-TWO WOMEN. ONE ARENA. A BATTLE TO THE DEATH.
After a long war, corporations have replaced countries. Sports are fought to the death. The most popular game is Last Valkyrie, a live tournament where women kill each other for marriage into a powerful family.
For Nova, living in poverty with her mother and sister is a harsh reality that she cannot escape. But when she is kidnapped and forced to fight on the show, her world changes. If she refuses to fight, the bomb in her head goes off. Now winning means her freedom.
With death lurking at every moment, Nova has no idea if her next fight will be her last. But one thing she knows for certain: only one is making it out alive.
Perfect for fans of Hunger Games, The Selection, and The Princess Trials. You won't want to put down this exciting page-turner!
1. If you could put yourself as a character in your book, who would you be?
Octavian Hyperion only because for the most part, he has it the easiest in the book. He gets to sit back and enjoy the show. I don’t want to be in the ring fighting for my life. That may sound messed up, but it’s a messed up world in the book. Now that doesn’t mean his position is the most honorable. When it comes to honor that would be Maximus because he’s in the mess with the Valkyries, trying to get Nova to win.
2. Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?
Sometimes. What I would do is take a break, listen to music, or go on social media. But most importantly I would just stay at the computer, stare at the white screen, and force myself to think of something to write.
3. What is your next project?
At this moment, the only thing I’m focused on is marketing the book. I do plan for a sequel/book 2 of Nova’s Blade to come out sometime next year. So I plan on writing it around the end of this year.
4. What genre do you write and why?
I write scifi because it allows me to be as creative as I want.
5. What is the last great book you’ve read?
I would say Morning Star by Pierce Brown. I loved that trilogy of Red Rising. It was like Star Wars meets Game of Thrones.
