My friend S.J. Kincaid's book birthday was on Tuesday! *cue hysterical applause*
I'm so lucky because I got an early copy of this book, thanks to S.J. and her UK Publisher, Hot Key Books.
INSIGNIA is a fantastic read. I have always loved S.J.'s HUGE-concept books. She has so much hook, it's scary. The worlds she imagines are incredibly complex and fascinating. And I have a soft-spot for her main character, Tom. He's so tough, but such a sweet kid underneath.
(The really awesome part for me is that my name is in the acknowledgements. Yes, that's right, I made the acknowledgements! When you read it, look for the Amy ... that's me! Stina Lindenblatt is the the Stina. We both used to be in a critique group with S.J.)
And if all that doesn't make you salivate, here's the amazing trailer:
Happy book birthday, S.J.!
