|Autographed with free tattoos|
Last week on May 16, 2014, I went to my second book signing event and got the chance to meet one of my favorite YA (young adult) authors, Susan Ee, who is the best-selling author of the “Angelfall” series. There are 2 books in the series so far but good news to hear that book 3 is coming out this summer 2014! At the signing, she actually showed me the first page of the draft she wrote for book 3 which I’m really anticipating to read. The autograph session took place at the San Jose Marriot Hotel in Downtown, San Jose. It was really sweet of Susan to sign 2 of my books since some authors only prefer to sign 1 book. She also gave out free tattoos which were images taken from the covers of her books! I like how her novels’ settings take place in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is the place where I grew up and this familiarity makes it easier for me to picture the setting very well in my mind. At first, I thought Susan resides in Palo Alto but she actually lives in San Jose. How cool is that! This means that I can attend her next book tour since she lives in the same area as me and is very likely to hold a book signing here in San Jose.
A little description of Book 1 in my own words:
After angels descended from heaven to take over the world, Penryn, the human girl and protagonist of the story, must cooperate with one of the “good’ fallen angels, Raffe, to stop the “bad” ones from wiping out the human population. Penryn also needs to save her sister, Paige, who got kidnapped by the angels when she tried to prevent Raffe’s wings from being cut off by his evil counterparts.
Overall, her novels were a very good read that I remember when I started reading Book 1 of the “Angelfall” series, I was hooked to the point where I didn’t want to put the book down until I finish reading to the end. As a result, I ended up finishing this book an entire day, from morning to midnight without getting any eyestrain at all. The end of book 1 left me impatient and wanting to know what happens next in book 2. I have also finished reading book 2 and now waiting for the release of book 3.
Hollywood will also be making a movie for the Book 1, “Angelfall” which is currently in production. I’m very curious about who the cast will be. While I wait for book 3, I will also be on the lookout for this movie and updates about the cast.
