The Blurbs: A YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday Post



This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday prompt is to write a blurb on your favorite book and/or your own work. Here are just a few of my favorites. Also, check out the blurb at the top of this page about my YA fantasy novel in progress, The MirrorMasters.

The Host
Goa'uld-like body snatchers are taking over the human race. Melanie Stryder was supposed to fade away when Wanderer took over her body. But Melanie refuses to give up. Now, the two forge an odd alliance--not to mention a love triangle--as they journey to find Melanie's love and family.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Sirius Black has broken out of the wizarding prison Azkaban, a feat none before him has ever achieved. Everyone believes that Sirius betrayed Harry's parents to Voldemort, as he was supposed to be the Potters' secret keeper, the only one who knew their location. Now Sirius is on his way to Hogwarts, presumably to go after Harry and complete the job he left unfinished years before. But all is not as it seems.

The Darkangel: Book 1 of The Darkangel Trilogy
Aeriel, a young slave, goes to avenge the murder of her best friend and mistress Eoduin at the hands of an icarus. What she discovers when she's taken to the castle of the icarus is a young man who was once a prince, a prince in need of freeing from the white witch. If she's going to save him, she'll have to embark on a quest set forth in a prophecy known as Ravenna's Rhyme before the white witch consumes his soul, along with the souls of the fourteen maidens he's expected to kill. Eoduin became the thirteenth maiden. Aeriel herself just might become the fourteenth...
