AshleyRose Sullivan Featured Book Release Silver Tongue

My Thoughts: I was excited to be able to read this one. I am a huge fan of Alternative History books. Picture a world where the colonies lost. Sullivan was able to weave a tale and painted such a clear picture of a world where there was no United States.  This book is captivating. It the main character meeting amazing people along the way both historical and fantastic.  This is one of those books that has great characters, engaging plot, history, and fantasy. Must read for lovers of Alt history as well as fantasy fans.  I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend to all. 

My Rating:4 out of 5.

About the Author: Born and raised in Appalachia, AshleyRose Sullivan now lives, writes, and paints in Los Angeles. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University and her first novel, Awesome Jones: A Superhero Fairy Tale is available from Seventh Star Press. She can be found at her website or her blog, My Year Of Star Trek.

Book Synopsis for Silver Tongue: The Colonies lost the Revolutionary War. Now it's 1839 and the North American continent is divided into three territories: New Britannia, Nueva Espana, and Nouvelle France where seventeen-year-old Claire Poissant lives. Claire has a magical way with words-literally. But a mystical power of persuasion isn't the only thing that makes her different. Half-French and half-Indian, Claire doesn't feel at home in either world. Maybe that's why she's bonded so tightly with her fellow outcasts and best friends: Phileas, a young man whose towering intellect and sexuality have always made him the target of bullies, and Sam, a descendant of George Washington who shares the disgraced general's terrible, secret curse. But when Sam's family is murdered, these bonds are tested and Claire's special ability is strained to its limits as the three hunt the men responsible into dangerous lands. Along the way they cross paths with P.T. Barnum, William Frankenstein and other characters from both history and fantasy as they learn the hard way that man is often the most horrific monster and that growing up sometimes means learning to let go of the things you hold most dear.
