Description:
 Midwest author Sarah Henning presents a virtual event featuring her new fantasy adventure novel THE PRINCESS WILL SAVE YOU! Sarah will be in conversation with fellow YA Authors Lori M. Lee (FOREST OF SOULS) and Amy Tintera (ALL THESE MONSTERS) to disuss their fantastic latest releases.

"The Princess Will Save You" is a fantasy adventure inspired by "The Princess Bride" from the acclaimed author of "Sea Witch", Sarah Henning. When her warrior father, King Sendoa, mysteriously dies, Princess Amarande of Ardenia is given what would hardly be considered a choice: Marry a stranger at sixteen or lose control of her family's crown. But Amarande was raised to be a warrior --not a sacrifice. In an attempt to force her choice, a neighboring kingdom kidnaps her true love, stable boy Luca. With her kingdom on the brink of civil war and no one to trust, she'll need all her skill to save him, her future, and her kingdom.

Danger lurks within the roots of "Forest of Souls", an epic, unrelenting tale of destiny and sisterhood, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Susan Dennard, and Netflix's "The Witcher"! Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she's intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen's next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo. And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life. Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood--an ancient forest possessed by souls--to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.

"All These Monsters" is a high-stakes sci-fi adventure about a teen girl who will do anything to escape her troubled home, even if that means joining a dangerous monster-fighting squad, from New York Times best-selling author Amy Tintera. Perfect for fans of "Warcross" and "Renegades". Seventeen-year-old Clara is ready to fight back against her abusive father, fight back against the only life she's ever known, and most of all, fight back against scrabs, the earth-dwelling monsters that are currently ravaging the world. So when an opportunity arises for Clara to join an international monster-fighting squad, she jumps at the chance. When Clara starts training with her teammates, however, she realizes what fighting monsters really means: sore muscles, exhaustion, and worst of all, death. Scrabs are unpredictable, violent, and terrifying. But as Clara gains confidence in her battle skills, she starts to realize scrabs might not be the biggest evil. The true monsters are the ones you least expect.
