But then internet…I saw this trailer and I was sold. Go. Watch it. I will wait.
But internet. I was sad after watching the trailer because I did not have a copy. And so I started to plot my breaking of EgmontUSA‘s offices. Had the whole dark suit and everything all ready….but apparently they upped the security and so my plains were foiled. I then thought that I might steal Khyrinthia’s copy but she too heard of my plotting and went into hiding. It seemed that I would never get my hands on an advanced copy….until…Chelsea mentioned she wanted a book. A book that I had. If you were near my shack in the woods that day Internet you would have seen a bright and shining light as the light bulb went off.
So after offering up the book that I had…and quite possibly my first born as well….a deal was made. And soon….my friends at the post office delivered me a very pretty ARC of The Rise of Renegade X. I am not ashamed to admit that there were squeals. I then immediately sat down and started to read.
I was in love from the first page…there was wit, there were amazing characters, and awesome world building. This was a book that I didn’t want to end. I loved the book so much that when I was at the ALA midwinter convention this past Saturday I practically beat people over the heads telling them about this book. People would come to the booth and want to ask the Egmont Rep about the books but I would jump in, grab the display copy of Renegade and say “this one people, you want this one”….when I spied security coming out of the corner of my eye I would dart into the crowd until I could circle back and do it again. So believe me when I tell you internet….this is a book you want to own. You know I would not lead you astray. Go forth and preorder you won’t regret it!
