The White Assassin Blog Tour


Hurray, hurray, it's blog tour day!

I am excited, honored, embarrassingly giddy to be a part of Hilary Wagner's blog tour for The White Assassin which just released on October 1st!



About the THE WHITE ASSASSIN:
Book II in the Nightshade Chronicles begins three years after Juniper and his rebel band of rats liberate the Catacombs and defeat their oppressors.

A sense of peace has settled over Nightshade City, but it is a false one. Billycan, the white assassin, has been found. Deep in the southern swamps, he now rules a primitive horde of savage swamp rats eager to overrun Nightshade City and claim it for their king. With the help of an ancient colony of bats and an uneasy alliance with the swamp snakes, Juniper and his Council set out to thwart Billycan’s plans. When an old secret is revealed—one so shocking it shakes both Billycan and Juniper to the core—the fate of Nightshade City and the life of Juniper’s only son depend on Juniper’s decision: should he help his mortal enemy? The past resurfaces with devastating impact in this exciting sequel to Nightshade City, a dark tale of intrigue, deception, and betrayal.

Nightshade City, Book I of the Nightshade Chronicles is a CBC Best Book of 2011 and a Crystal Kite finalist.
The reviews for The White Assassin have been wonderful, and that's because the story is freaking fantastic! It is no secret how much my three kids and I ALL loved Nightshade City. I didn't think Hilary could top it, but she did. The White Assassin is even better!

I have decided that Hilary is the master of evil villains--Billycan is right up there at the top when it comes to evil characters. What's fascinating, though, is that I can't help but love him as a character, even while I hate him. 

I said this when I reviewed Nightshade City, and I'll say it again now: This series is destined to become a classic.  Move over, Rats of Nimh, because here comes Hilary Wagner!
