Welcome to my stop on The Collectors' Society character tour hosted by InkSlingerPR!
Today I am THRILLED to introduce you to none other than ALICE herself!
 
But first a little bit about the book....
 
The Collectors' Society
    by: Heather Lyons
Adult Urban Fantasy
Released: October 23, 2014
 
From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.

After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.

It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?

Quotes:
  • Knowledge is always one of the fiercest of advantages a lady can have.
  • I am a queen, the Queen of Diamonds. I am terrified, I am elated. I am strong, I am weak. I am powerful, I am helpless. I am the bird who soars. 
 
 
Excerpt:
 
Midway up the stairs, my feet refuse to move farther. “Explain this to me. Explain how I can be from a book, that somebody made me up, and yet . . .”
 
I pound a fist on my chest. “My heart beats. I feel pain. Pleasure. Love. Hate. I sleep. Eat. Grow. Age.”
 
But before he can say anything, I blurt out, “I’m real. I’m a person. I have memories—I’ve lived, Van Brunt. Lived. Are you telling me that my actions, my life . . . everything I’ve ever said or done is due to the words written down of some man who couldn’t decide upon a name?”
 
My words ring throughout the stairwell and rattle the nearby windows, but Van Brunt acts if we’re discussing the weather. “Not everything, Ms. Reeve.”

  1. Oh! I cannot wait to have time to pick this one up! I just get more and more excited about it! And as for the question, I guess my favorite was Beauty and the Beast. Though I do just love fairy tales in general :D

  3. My favorite fairy tale is Rumpelstiltskin. My grandpa had a few Grimm's Fairy Tales books up north and whenever we visited him when I was little my dad would read me stories from them when I went to bed. Rumpelstiltskin was one of my favorite stories to have him read to me.
