Book Trailer Thursdays!

To participate, post an entry in your blog on Thursdays with an embedded book trailer of your choice (note: the trailer can be fan made but please no movie trailers of book adaptations) with your thoughts and comments underneath. It can be a book you have read, want to read or have never even come across before. 

Today we are featuring a Sneak Peek from...the debut novel, Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

by harperteen
The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut. On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished. A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.

The Watcher in the Shadows by Chris Moriarty

The Watcher in the Shadows 
(Inquisitor's Apprentice #2)

by Chris Moriarty

4.0 out of 5 stars An Alternate History? or Alternate World?July 2, 2013

This book is everything that a tween or teen reader is looking for is a little Victorian, just a touch of Steampunk and lots of Adventure.

That being said I really didn't expect to like it (not a big fan of Alternate Worlds) but it won me over! I didn't read Book One in the series, The Inquisitor's Apprentice so I truly thought it might be a difficult read but the characters and story sucked me in!

Magic - History - and death by an Electric Tuxedo?  what's not to like?  ...oh and the author's name is Moriarty...Seriously?  Love it!

The Watcher in the Shadows (Inquisitor's Apprentice) has something for everyone and boys will love it as much as the girls...some of the dialog is a little disjointed, though that could be a period issue.

I would recommend this series to boys and girls from 12 up (10 if they are good readers).

Summary from Amazon:
At the turn of the twentieth century, New York’s Bowery District becomes the scene of a terrible murder when the Klezmer King gets fried to a crisp by his Electric Tuxedo—on stage! The Inquisitor’s apprentice, thirteen-year-old Sacha Kessler, tries to help find the killer, but the closer he gets to solving the crime, the more it sounds as if the creature that haunted him in his first adventure is back. Worse still, his own Jewish family is in danger. Sacha has avoided learning magic until now, but as his world falls apart around him, he changes his mind.
