BLOG TOUR: The Collectors' Society by Heather Lyons


Synopsis

From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.

After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.

It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?



Excerpt

I tell him sweetly, “Call me luv again and you’ll have to go get yourself a nice piece of meat for the bruised eye you’ll be sporting.”

He pretends to swoon, an arm across his forehead. “Be still me heart.” And then, with a rubbery grin, “Do you talk this dirty to all your beaus?”

I’m halfway down the hall when he catches up with me. “You’re no fun, little Miss Alice.”

It’s my turn to playact, a hand pressed against my heart. “That wounds me deeply.” And then I smack his hand as it brushes up against my pocket. He yelps, but thankfully there are a few more feet between us now.

“Steal from me, and I’ll do more than gift you with a black eye. Keep your hands to yourself. Understand?”

“No fun at all,” he mutters sadly once we’re upon the elevator.
