I heard it after I joined the Writer's Platform-Building Campaign and came across an author and blogger named PJ Hoover. Check out her blog. I love her posts but this book, her book, I felt drawn to it:
Piper's world is dying. Global warming is slowly killing every living thing on Earth. She endures the endless summer and her suffocating mother, and does what she can to help, using her incredible green thumb. Until one day...
She opens a mysterious box, and everything changes.
Piper discovers a world of mythology parallel to her own. A world where gods battle for control, and monsters feed in the rivers of the Underworld. This dark world pulls her in and tells her she belongs.
She meets Shayne, who keeps secrets from her. And Reese, who makes her feel alive. But she almost loses her best friend and her life. She doesn't want to leave this new world. But can she choose the life she wants, without sacrificing the people she loves?
Then she gave an interview that made me really appreciate her path to publication. The breathtaking book cover doesn't hurt.

Now, it is no longer a whisper. It is proclaiming , "Read me, Angela!"
Yeah, this book is already on my to-read list and is creeping up the Need-to-Read-Now list. Maybe it's the fact that it's set in Austin, TX and we're suffering scorching heat and wildfires as we speak...maybe PJ is on to something...*cue eerie, creepy music*
Whatever the draw, she's definitely an Indie author with great ratings and reviews and a book with fantastic promise. You can also find SOLSTICE on Facebook. I also enjoyed her book trailer.
What about you? Feeling a bit dystopian or maybe a step into the world of mythology?
