Starglass: Excerpt, Trailer and Giveaway

Terra has never known anything but life aboard the Asherah, a city-within-a-spaceship that left Earth five hundred years ago in search of refuge. At sixteen, working a job that doesn't interest her, and living with a grieving father who only notices her when he's yelling, Terra is sure that there has to be more to life than what she's got.

But when she inadvertently witnesses the captain's guard murdering an innocent man, Terra is suddenly thrust into the dark world beneath her ship's idyllic surface. As she's drawn into a secret rebellion determined to restore power to the people, Terra discovers that her choices may determine life or death for the people she cares most about. With mere months to go before landing on the long-promised planet, Terra has to make the decision of a lifetime - one that will determine the fate of her people.

As part of the blog tour for Starglass, I have an excerpt from the book as well as the trailer:

I crouched low, steadying my back against the trunk. That's when something in the gnarled bark caught my eye. 

Words. Words carved in deep and then healed over. That alone wasn't unusual -  what tree in the atrium didn't bear the initials of some young couple who had declared their love hundreds of years before? But these words were different. There wasn't any heart looping around them. No arrow sliced through, either. They were a little hard to make out in the fading daylight, but I ran my fingers over the rough bark, reading them with my fingertips. 

Liberty on Earth. Liberty on Zehava.

  3. I hadn't seen the book trailer before, so thanks for sharing! I read a lot of Phoebe North's reviews and think she has great taste in books, so I'm looking forward to giving her debut a try. Love the short excerpt. :) Thanks for sharing!
