Scarlett Kol -- Double Book Launch

Saturday May 12 2018 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Young Adult Double Book Launch of Mercury Rises (Inkspell Publishing) and Wicked Descent (Evernight Teen).

A girl looking to escape. A boy looking to be a hero. A love that could kill them both. Powerful forces keep them apart but coming together might be the key to saving New America from destruction—even if it costs both their lives. Mercury Rises is a retelling of Robin Hood by a young Maid Marian in a dystopian near future.

All families have secrets, but what Avery, the protagonist of Kol’s Wicked Descent, doesn’t know might try to kill her. Avery Belmont wants to know why her father disappeared, except the only one with answers is the striking, yet caustic, Drew Montgomery. But when getting close to Drew starts to have deadly consequences, living with the lies may be safer than uncovering the truth.

Raised in Northern Manitoba, Scarlett Kol grew up reading and writing about things that make you sleep with the lights on. As an adult, she’s still afraid of the dark.

A near future retelling of Robin Hood from the point of view of a rebellious seventeen year old Maid Marian, named Mercury.

A girl looking for a way out.

Being the daughter of New America’s leader, Mercury Masters has everything a girl could want. A glamorous life full of beautiful people, and the power to have anything she wants, except for one thing—to escape. Because Mercury’s perfect life comes with secrets to keep. Dangerous secrets that if made public would destroy her, her family, and her father’s reign. Then she meets Hawk.

A boy looking to be a hero.

Hawk, a handsome prep school dropout turned vigilante, has his own family secrets. Deadly secrets that have haunted him since he was fifteen. But instead of fighting the ghosts of his past, Hawk has assembled a group of misfit hackers and thieves to save the future from the corrupt government of New America and the mysterious virus that is killing off its citizens. But trying to do the right thing is tough when the person you really want to save is your enemy’s daughter.

A love that could kill them both.

Powerful forces keep them apart, but coming together could be the key to saving New America from destruction—even though it may cost both their lives.

About the Author: As a kid I believed that the treasures in my mother's jewelry box were magic amulets that would give me immeasurable power and that old books could transport me to secret worlds. As an adult, not much has changed. Born and raised in Northern Manitoba, I grew up drawn to the darker side of literature. Vampires were my first love but that soon branched into ghosts, werewolves, demons, angels, and anything else that might make you sleep with the lights on. I began writing at thirteen and completed my first novella at sixteen -- a broody vampire romance. My early influences were Christopher Pike and Anne Rice. Current obessions are Maggie Stiefvater, Lauren Kate, and Gillian Flynn. Hopefully, one day I can create a story that will haunt a reader's dreams like their stories did mine.

Wicked Descent

Reader Reward Price: $16.19

All families have secrets, but what Avery Belmont doesn’t know might try to kill her.

Everyone in Avery’s life can’t wait to leave Shady Creek. Her father disappeared the day she was born, and her mother ran away with her to Detroit as a baby. Now after her grandmother’s death, Avery has returned to find that small towns never forget the past, and rumors that she’s a witch are making her wish she’d stayed gone. But Drew Montgomery might give her a reason to stay.

Handsome as he is arrogant, Drew knows things that no one else knows. Things about Avery, about her father, and about what really happened the day she was born. However the price for information might be too high as getting close to Drew starts to have some dangerous consequences. Deadly ones.
