Fierce Reads Tour with Ann Aguirre, Elizabeth Fama, Lish McBride, & Marissa Meyer

Highlands Ranch: An outstanding group of young adult authors are stopping at the Tattered Cover during their fall “Fierce Reads” Tour!


Ann Aguirre will read from and sign her new book Outpost (Macmillan), the sequel to her bestselling horror story Enclave. Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

Elizabeth Fama, author of the ALA Best Book for Young Adults Overboard, will read from and sign her spooky new ghost tale Monstrous Beauty (Macmillan). Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him.

Lish McBride will read from and sign Necromancing the Stone (Macmillan), the sequel to her hilarious urban fantasy novel Hold Me Closer, Necromancer. With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right? Well...not really.

Marissa Meyer will read from and sign Cinder (Macmillan), the New York Times bestselling first book in her Lunar Chronicles series. Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl...Cinder, a gifted mechanic, and a cyborg. Her second in the series Scarlet will be out early next year.

"First in the Lunar Chronicles series, this futuristic twist on Cinderella retains just enough of the original that readers will enjoy spotting the subtle similarities. But debut author Meyer’s brilliance is in sending the story into an entirely new, utterly thrilling dimension. –Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
