Penguin Books, eager to eclipse Twilight
with a new moon of its own, sharpened its stakes and rounded up five authors of hot new fantasy titles for Young Adult readers from its various imprints, unleashing them on the world for the Breathless Reads National Book Tour
, which haunts the Tattered Cover's Highlands Ranch store tomorrow at 7 p.m. Featured authors include Ally Condie (Matched
), Andrea Cremer (Nightshade
), Kristen Miller (The Eternal Ones
), Beth Revis (Across the Universe
), and Brenna Yovanoff, a Denver-based writer whose debut novel The Replacement
is the darkest -- and the best -- of the bunch. We liked her book and its unlikely demon-rocker hero Mackie so much that we called her up to get some perspective on this whole YA fantasy craze.
