Hello and welcome 😀
T. Rae Mitchell here, your host for this portion of the hunt! I’m an incurable fantasy geek who loves mixing fairy tales, folklore and legends with our everyday world to see what kind of magical stories emerge. I’m best known for my young adult fantasy series, Fate’s Fables: One Girl’s Journey Through 8 Unfortunate Fairy Tales, which can be found on numerous Amazon Top 100 Best Seller lists, such as Coming of Age Fantasy and Fairy Tales & Folklore.
There are seven contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I’m part of the ORANGE TEAM–but there is also a RED, GOLD, GREEN, BLUE, PURPLE and PINK team for a chance to win a whole different set of books! You’ll also gain access to exclusive content and free gifts from each participating YA author, so make sure you scroll all the way down each author’s page. You don’t want to miss the extra goodies we’re all giving away 😉
Here’s the list of authors on my ORANGE TEAM!

Now that we’ve got all the how-to’s out of the way, I’d like to introduce you to the author I’m hosting on this hunt.
Meet Livia Blackburne!
New York Times bestselling author Livia Blackburne wrote her first novel while she was a PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she conducted research on the neuroscience of reading acquisition in children. Upon graduation, she switched to writing full time, which also involves getting into people’s heads but without the help of a three tesla MRI scanner. You can find out more about Livia’s books at www.liviablackburne.com and connect with on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Livia is featuring Umbertouched, her upcoming sequel to Rosemarked!
The mission was a failure. Even though Zivah and Dineas discovered a secret that could bring down the empire, their information is useless without proof. Now, with their cover blown and their quest abandoned, their only remaining hope is to get home before Ampara brings the full might of its armies against their peoples.
As Shidadi and Dara alike prepare for war, Zivah and Dineas grapple with the toll of their time in the capital. After fighting alongside the Amparans against his own kin, can Dineas convince the Shidadi-and himself-where his loyalties lie? After betraying her healer’s vows in Sehmar City, can Zivah find a way to redeem herself-especially when the Dara ask her to do the unthinkable? And after reluctantly falling in love, what will the two do with their lingering feelings, now that the Dineas from Sehmar City is gone forever? Time is running out for all of them, but especially Zivah whose plague symptoms surface once again. Now, she must decide how she’ll define the life she has left.
Together, healer and warrior must find the courage to save their people, expose the truth, and face the devastating consequences headed their way.
