The Shadowed Sun is the third book of her Dreamblood Series. In this novel, Gujaareh, the city of dreams, suffers under the imperial rule of the Kisuati Protectorate.

Allie Burke Signs in San DIego (Saturday, July 19 at 2pm)
A novelist from Burbank, Allie Burke writes books she can’t find in the bookstore. Having been recognized for writing a “kickass book that defies the genre it’s in,” Allie writes with a prose that has been labeled poetic and ethereal. Amber Passion, the third and final in the Enchantress Series, aspires to answer the questions raised earlier in the series, and leave the reader forever changed and daydreaming in every shade imaginable, starting with darkness, and ending, at the end of the tunnel, with light. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?

Tobias Buckell Signs in San Diego (Tuesday, July 29 at 7pm)
Best-selling SF author and futurist Tobias Buckell continues his tradition of thrilling and diverse stories, and his exploration of a world transformed by climate change with Hurricane Fever, the second in the Arctic Rising future-thriller series. Hurricane Fever earned praise from Kirkus — “Buckell has written a smart and well-constructed tale that’s filled with excitement and the flavor of the Caribbean isles,” and Publishers Weekly – “The scenes of sailing and spying action move quickly, and the climax, set on a supersized satellite-launching cannon, is one white cat shy of a Bond movie.” Keep your books dry and join us in-store to talk about the shape of the future and espionage.
