YA Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This bi-annual event was first organised by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favourite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes!

On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team!

But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the PURPLE TEAM–but there is also a red team, a gold team, a green team, a purple team, and a pink team for a chance to win a whole different set of books!

Today, I’m hosting Kristi Helvig!

Kristi Helvig is a Ph.D. clinical psychologist turned sci-fi/fantasy author. Her debut sci-fi BURN OUT, (Egmont USA/Lerner Publishing), called “a scorching series opener not to be missed” by Kirkus Reviews, follows one of Earth’s last survivors when our sun unexpectedly burns out early. Kristi resides in sunny Colorado with her hubby, two kiddos, and their behaviorally-challenged dogs.

The book Kristi is featuring on the hunt is her urban fantasy novel, THE WING COLLECTOR.

about the wing collector

Hide…or be hunted.

When a pair of faerie wings fetch big bucks online, 17-yo Lila Kincade realizes her kind aren’t just oppressed; they’re hunted.

Due to prejudice and hostility by humans, half-human/half-faerie Lila lives in a world where faeries are required to register with the government and bind their wings in order to look like everyone else.

Lila is haunted by repetitive dreams involving a shack in the woods, and when photos of dismembered wings appear in her school locker, she soon realizes that she is the serial killer’s prime target. As faerie corpses pile up around her, Lila embarks on a mission to save her race from extinction. She must figure out who she can trust and stop the killer before she—and all faeries— are obliterated forever.

London, England

Victims and Vitamins

I watch her walking home from behind one of the trees. A stupid smile is plastered across her face, but she won’t be smiling for long. She’s not as obvious as most in her attire because of the uniform, but it didn’t take me long to mark her. I’ve been studying her for only a day and her weakness is evident. In fact, I think this one will be most useful in my mission. 

Sadly, I have but a week in London before I will be missed back home but I’ve had quite a productive day. My first victim died just this morning but it was almost too easy. He was no match for me, but alas, his wings tore in the process and I cannot use them as intended.  Fortunately, there will be many, many more victims to come in the days ahead and I will need every ounce of strength to carry out my task.

Good thing I take my daily vitamins.
