Today is our stop on The Left-Handed Fate blog tour! I get to put a playlist together for the book, and the way I have done it is different than I have done it in the past. I’ve chosen to score the book as if it were a film using classical music, some from films that already exist, and some from my favorite composers. If you know me, you know I love classical music and I listen to it ALL. THE. TIME. Especially when I’m editing, but it also really helps with my anxiety. That ended up working out, because that’s the genre of music I feel really fits this book the best, and if you want, you can play the music as you read The Left-Handed Fate!
After the playlist there is a giveaway for a finished copy of the book for readers from the US!
Lucy Bluecrowne and Maxwell Ault are on a mission: find the three pieces of a strange and arcane engine. They're not exactly sure what this machine does, but they have it on good authority that it will stop the war that's raging between their home country of England and Napoleon Bonaparte's France. Despite being followed by mysterious men dressed all in black, they're well on their way to finding everything they need when their ship, the famous Left-Handed Fate, is taken by the Americans.
And not just any Americans. The Fate (and with it, Lucy and Max) are put under the command of Oliver Dexter, who's only just turned twelve.
But Lucy and Max aren't the only ones trying to put the engine together, and if the pieces fall into the wrong hands, it could prove disastrous. Oliver is faced with a choice: help Lucy and Max and become a traitor to his country? Or follow orders and risk endangering that same country and many others at the same time--not to mention his friends?
