Intense and absorbing, Skylark transported me to a world of magic and danger unlike anything I’ve read before. I loved Lark, and was riveted by her journey of survival and self-discovery. Dark, original, and beautiful, this is a novel you don’t want to miss.

This intriguing dystopian adventure's depiction of the stand this strong female protagonist takes against the horrors of her world is fast-paced, compelling, and un-put-downable.

Once again, the worldbuilding is superb, the characters fully fleshed out and intriguing, the battles riveting, and the edge-of-the seat suspense compelling. Teens looking for a well-written dystopian adventure with steampunk elements in the magical machines created by the Architects will enjoy spending time with Lark and her companions.

An extremely entertaining tale of past, present and future leaving the question: where does humanity stand when the best laid plans backfire?

A Note From Meg

Welcome to my new recurring feature, “In Search of the Write Space!” In this series authors share pictures of their work spaces, giving us all a little glimpse into their creative lives. If you’re new to the series, be sure to check out last week’s guest, Sarah J. Maas, for a chance to win her debut, THRONE OF GLASS! This week we’re joined by Kat Zhang, author of WHAT’S LEFT OF ME, and college student extraordinaire. She’ll take us through what it’s like trying to carve out a creative space when you’re living in a dorm room!

The Tour

Here's my desk! It's not super-special because I live in a dorm, so all my furniture is just standard university-issued stuff. I have pasted some stuff on the plain white walls, though. I've got some pretty bookmarks, as well as letters people have sent me :) Right now, there are also some lovely flowers my friend Savannah sent me for my release day!

A close-up of the books on my desk. There's WHAT'S LEFT OF ME on top--actually the book I used as a guest book at my launch party. Beneath that are three school books: one for my screenwriting class, and two for my sci-fi class. Yes, I do have the best classes ever this semester. Be jealous :PBecause I'm at school, the majority of my for-fun books are on my shelf at home, and I have mostly school books. The HOW FICTION WORKS is for my honors colloquium, and THE OXFORD BOOK OF MODERN SCIENCE WRITING is for my sci-fi class. I'm sadly no longer in the Sociology class, but I kept the book because it was so interesting :D

Whenever I stay up super late to write/do homework/both, I tend to bake myself midnight snacks. They extra cookies/pastries then go to my lucky (or not-so-lucky, depending on what you think of my baking skills...lol) first class the next day :PAnd of course, every writer needs to be well fed. Even better when you invite lots of friends over and cook up a storm! I love to cook because it keeps my hands busy while letting my mind brainstorm or work through plotting problems.

What’s Left of Me
by Kat Zhang

What's Left of Me Cover

I should not exist. But I do.

Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t…

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet… for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
