I don’t usually participate in WoW, but I am really intrigued by the fact these two authors have collaborated and figured I would find out if anyone else is as intrigued to check it out this Spring.
“Invisibility” by Andrea Cremer
and David Levithan
Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.(less)
I’m not a huge fan of Andrea Cremer’s “Nightshade” series, but I *am* a big fan of David Levithan’s novels, and I have always enjoyed his collaborations, particularly with Rachel Cohn and John Green. So despite my ambivalence about Calla Tor and her alpha-wolf love triangle, I am eager to see how the authors’ styles match up and whether they can conjure the same kind of magic as David has managed with his previous writing partners. Paranormal romance, invisibility, plus it’s set in New York — all compelling reasons to check out Andrea and David’s upcoming book. What do you think?
