Yesterday (30th December 2011) I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Sarah Alderson, author of Hunting Lila and soon to be released Fated, in Perth Western Australia.
WOW! Sarah is such an awesome and lovely gal.

Cherry & Rhubarb Pudding!
A few Perth book bloggers and fan met up at The Greenhouse Cafe Perth for some beverages and pretty amazing desserts!

We all sat around and chatted all things Lila and Fated.... plus all our own fave books, best reads for the year and book flops!  It was enjoyable, casual and Sarah is so easy going.  It still amazes me to see authors in awe!  We all sat there in awe that we were meeting Sarah - and yet she was in awe of us....being people that had read her book, loved it and wanted to meet her!!! And of course Sarah signed our Hunting Lila books - woot hoo!

My Book signed!!

The "Hunting Lila" fans out there will be pleased to know that "Losing Lila" (book2) is in edits at the moment and Sarah is so happy with the book. We all are anxious for its release and Sarah says there is lots for action in Losing Lila.
Marissa & Sarah!

Cheers to you Sarah for being so great and writing Hunting Lila.  Super excited to know that come Monday my review copy of Fated will be in my hands and getting an optical work out!!!  So keep you eyes on the blog for my review which will be very soon!!

For those that haven't read Hunting Lila.....bump it up your TBR list, get a copy and enjoy! Check out Sarah's site for more about herself and her books!

Special thanks to Caroline at Simon & Schuster Australia who is an awesome publicist and organised the meet and greet with Sarah.


Release Date:  5th January 2011
What happens when you discover you aren’t who you thought you were? And that the person you love is the person who will betray you? If your fate is already determined, can you fight it?
When Evie Tremain discovers that she’s the last in a long line of Demon slayers and that she’s being hunted by an elite band of assassins – Shapeshifters, Vampires and Mixen demons amongst them – she knows she can’t run. They’ll find her wherever she goes. Instead she must learn to stand and fight.
But when the half-human, half-Shadow Warrior Lucas Gray – is sent to spy on Evie and then ordered to kill her before she can fulfil a dangerous prophecy, their fates become inextricably linked. The war that has raged for one thousand years between humans and demons is about to reach a devastating and inevitable conclusion. Either one or both of them will die before this war ends.
If your life becomes bound to another’s, what will it take to sever it?

17-year-old Lila has two secrets she’s prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she’s been in love with her brother’s best friend, Alex, since forever. Or thereabouts. After a mugging on the streets of South London goes horribly wrong and exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust – her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they’ve found them. Trying to uncover the truth of why her mother was killed, and the real remit of The Unit, Lila becomes a pawn in a dangerous game. Struggling to keep her secrets in a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realises that she is not alone – there are others out there just like her, people with special powers – and her mother’s killer is one of them…
