Deadly Destinations: Sarah Beth Durst’s Conjured World

**Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour with Renee Collins & enter for a chance to win a copy of Relic**

Deadly Destinations visits the world of Sarah Beth Durst’s Conjured. A world of lost memories, a carnival tent and a serial killer. Conjured will be released on August 27, 2013 from Walker Children’s/Bloomsbury.

Enter for a chance to win a signed copy of Conjured! This giveaway is provided by Sarah Beth Durst.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Welcome home!  You live here now.  Your name is Eve.  Or whatever you want it to be.

You will be safe.  Don’t be scared.  No witness who followed the rules has ever been harmed in the history of the witness protection program.  It’s simple:

1. Don’t contact anyone you knew… if you ever remember who anyone is.

2. Don’t tell anyone about your past… if you ever remember what it was.

3. Don’t discuss the case… except with us.  Tell us everything.

We want to know what you know, what you remember, what you dream… even if you dream about a carnival tent of tattered red, a girl with antlers who stands in a pool of blood, and a woman who sews buttons into your skin.

The carnival in your dreams has contortionists who can remove their own heads and a Magician whose tricks are terrifyingly real.  But you aren’t there.  You’re in a narrow, yellow house with a peaked roof.  Your bedroom has birds on the wallpaper and a quilt on the bed.  You eat pizza, Chinese food, and bagels with cream cheese from the restaurants in town.  You work at the local library with a boy named Zach whom you like too much for our comfort.  And you think you can be normal.

You can’t.  But you’d better pretend you can, if you want to stay here, if you want to stay safe.  Your life depends on it.  And so do ours.

About Sarah:

Sarah Beth Durst is the author of young adult novels VesselDrink, Slay, LoveEnchanted Ivy, and Ice from Simon & Schuster, as well as middle grade novels Into the Wild and Out of the Wild from Penguin Young Readers. Her next book for teens, Conjured, comes out in September 2013 from Bloomsbury/Walker. Her first book for adults, The Lost, comes out in November 2013 from Harlequin/Luna. She has been a finalist for SFWA’s Andre Norton Award three times, for Vessel, Ice, and Into the Wild.

Sarah was born in Massachusetts as Sarah Angelini and grew up in Northboro, a small town in central Mass that later became the setting for her debut novel.

At the age of ten, she decided she wanted to be a writer. (Before that, she wanted to be Wonder Woman, except with real flying ability instead of an invisible jet. She also would have accepted a career as a unicorn princess.) And she began writing fantasy stories.

She attended Princeton University, where she spent four years studying English, writing about dragons, and wondering what the campus gargoyles would say if they could talk.

Sarah lives in Stony Brook, New York, with her husband, her two children, and her ill-mannered cat.

About this Book:

Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name—but no memories of her past. She’s been told that she’s in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access—and there is nothing they won’t say—or do—to her to get her to remember.

At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things—things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed—and she’s lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her—but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined.

    I am a HUGE fan of Sarah Beth Durst! I have yet to read a less than stellar book by this amazingly talented author. Conjured sounds to me like it is going to be another one of her nothing short of stellar stories. Creepy, dark and mysterious. In other words, perfection. And I am a huge fan of this amazing cover, too!

    I haven’t heard a lot about Conjured yet (I didn’t even know it was going to be a series!), but I’ve seen so many raving reviews for Vessel that I want to give Conjured a shot. Or maybe Vessel first. I DON’T KNOW. But either way, that cover is good and creepy, but that might be my needle phobia making itself known again.
