Battle Ground, Wash.,- Fantasy can be the ideal escape for readers who want to experience something out of the norm. Fans of K.L. Bone's work know the thrill of following her detailed stories from beginning to end, enjoying the care that she puts into the plot, the way that she describes the environment and the precise development of the characters. With her new book, Black Rose, they will enjoy what they have come to love about every K.L. Bone book - a dark tale that is filled with layers of complex characters and explosive emotions.
Bone will be promoting her new book, Black Rose, at the Rusty Grape Vineyard's December 13 wine tasting. Along with other authors, Bone will be present to talk to fans and autograph copies of her newest book. "I'm excited to be able to offer my latest book in my own hometown first," she said. "I'm looking forward to a fun afternoon sharing the excitement of Black Rose with local fans and all of the great wines from the Rusty Grape."
The first in a series, Black Rose is a dark tale of retribution, love and honor - at any cost. The story opens with Mara, Captain of the Black Rose Guard, locked in a state of self-imposed exile. In her isolation, she silently suffers from guilt over her past actions and her separation from Edward, a member of the royal guard and the only man to ever hold her heart. Readers join Mara on an intense emotional journey that spans over a thousand years of forbidden pain, loss and love. These characters sacrifice everything in order to defend the royal court. However, the murder of the princess they were charged to protect inevitably leads them onto a dark path of vengeance from which there is no return. "Mara must ultimately choose what matters most: avenging the death of the princess or Edward's love," said Bone.
The Rusty Grape Vineyard wine tasting and book signing event will be held on Saturday, December 13, from 5pm to 8pm at 16712 North East 219th St., Battle Ground, Washington. Free and open to the public, the event will offer wine tastings, wood-fired pizza and other foods, and book signings from K.L. Bone and other notable authors including: Greg Wilkey, author of the Mortimer Drake vampire series. Sarah M. Cradit, author of The House of Crimson and Clover series. Brandy L. Rivers, author of the Other of Edenton series and Alys B. Cohen, author of the Sacred Blood series.
