Forests of the Fae: The Raven Queen
By K. Kibbee
Genre: YA Fantasy
A summer spent untangling a century-old mass disappearance, communing with ghosts, fleeing dark Fae Folk, and enduring her nefarious cousin Lexie would seem like tribulation enough for 13-year-old Anne, and yet her struggles have only just begun.
Though she’s closed Devlin’s Door behind her, something sinister has followed Anne from the other side. Her dearest friend Grace is not as she would seem. Something dark has taken hold of the girl . . . something not of this world. Ravens surround her, people mindlessly do her bidding, and wickedness drips from her lips. It’s only a matter of time before Anne uncovers her secret and with it, her vengeance.
Meanwhile, somewhere deep in the Forests of the Fae, the real Grace struggles to retain her humanity and escape the revolting Faerie body that imprisons her. With pet raven Onyx at her side, she is heralded a Queen, and worshiped by the very creatures that she despises. Set atop a throne of thorns, she feels all is lost, until a stranger with human eyes and a sorted past is shackled at her feet.
Though worlds apart, both girls must race against time if they hope to unravel the mysteries of the Fae folk and unmask The Raven Queen.
1.) What inspired you to write The Raven Queen?
Death threats! No--seriously. I left the readers of "The Raven Queen'"s predecessor, "Devlin's Door," hanging on tenterhooks at its conclusion and I fear they would have hunted me down and ended my life had I not produced a second book!
2.) When do you like to write?
Well I don't know that it's by choice, but I often end up writing in the wee hours of the night--due to my insomnia.
3.) What is your favorite drink to drink while writing?
Ha! What a peculiar question! I don't know. . . coffee? Or as my husband calls it-- "weak, coffee-flavored sugar water."
4.) Do you have another job besides being an author?
I can officially and triumphantly reply "NO!" For a period of time I did dual duty, but after much perseverance (and a fair amount of begging), I have transitioned to writing full-time.
5.) Do you have any new projects coming up?
Boy, do I! I'm actually straddling three: the third and final book in the 'Forests of the Fae' trilogy ("Lang's Labyrinth"), a fun little children's series following the clumsy Corgi mascot of Incorgnito Publishing Press, and a pet project that shall remain top secret!
