Blog Tour: SILVER EVE An Interview and a Giveaway!


I am so excited to be hosting a spot on the SILVER EVE blog tour I LOVED this book! I have an interview with Sandra to share with you today! And make sure to enter the giveaway to win one of three awesome prize packs!!

Haven't heard of SILVER EVE? Check it out!


Title & Series: SILVER EVE (Guardians of Tarnec #2)
Author: Sandra Waugh
Release date: September 22, 2015
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Pages: 384
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
A Healer without home or purpose, seventeen-year-old Evie Carew has found the perfect place to disappear: Rood Marsh. She can easily fade into its vast wilderness of towering reeds; leave behind the growing violence that is claiming her innocent world. Leave behind the tragedy that broke her heart and sent her far from her grandmother, cousin Lark and all she once loved.

But Evie is not alone in the marsh. A seer, a Rider, and Breeders of Chaos all hunt her—for though opposed in objective, her seekers share knowledge she does not: Evie is one of the four Guardians of Tarnec, one who can help save the world from the coming destruction if she can reclaim the stolen amulet of Death. But whether she meets true love or a brutal end on such a journey is a matter of who finds her first.


Now on to the interview.

Hi Sandra!  First, I want to say welcome back to Two Chicks on Books!  I am looking forward to SILVER EVE and I know my readers are as well, and am so happy that you could stop by for a visit!

Hi Jaime! Thank you so much for inviting me into your book world!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about SILVER EVE and the characters?  Will we see many characters from LARK RISING in this one?

Here’s my nutshell description of SILVER EVE (Book 2 in the Guardians of Tarnec series):  A 17-yr-old healer hides in the wilds of Rood Marsh, hunted by a seer, a Rider, and Breeders of Chaos.  Whether she fulfills her charge to reclaim the amulet of Death, finds true love, or meets a brutal end is a matter of which enemy finds her first. 

To those familiar with the series, Book 2 follows Lark’s cousin Evie on her own quest as a Guardian. You will see many familiar faces from Book 1, but fair warning, this moves the quest into a darker, more violent world.

What about book 3?  Do we have a title yet?

Only my working title (which means it probably won’t see the light of day): IN SHADOW.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

There’s a rather unpleasant character I based upon my seventh grade best-friend-turned-enemy.

Who was your favorite character to write?  What about your least favorite?

Well, I always love Harker, he’s just so odd and sad.  There isn’t really a least favorite character, but I would say the most difficult was Lark—it was tough to write her from the ‘outside looking in’ since I’d spent so much time in her head in LARK RISING!

What is your favorite passage/scene in SILVER EVE?

I like Evie and Laurent’s first confrontation. J

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

That’s the great thing about fantasy—it’s my world, and this story in particular was truly sprung from imagination. I do have an encyclopedia of magical herbs on hand, tho’.

What are you reading right now?  Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

I’m currently finishing JACKABY, by William Ritter.  Next up on the 6-foot TBR pile is Ronald L. Smith’s HOODOO.  I have Holly Black and Leigh Bardugo and Laini Taylor and Maggie Stiefvater, Elizabeth Wein… (all long overdue) and that’s just YA—I’m dying for everything.

Who is your ultimate Book Boyfriend?

If I only get one, I’ll have to pick Charles Darcy. He comes with Pemberley.


What inspired you to write YA?

I guess I just wanted to write what I love to read.

Sandra grew up in an old house full of crowded bookshelves, in walking distance of an old library that allowed her to drag home a sack of six books at a time. It goes without saying, then, that she fell in love with the old house in Litchfield County, CT, because of its many bookshelves, and she lives there now with her husband, two sons, and a dog who snores. Loudly.

LARK RISING is her first novel and the first in the GUARDIANS OF TARNEC series. SILVER EVE follows in 2015.

About Lark Rising 
Lark has foreseen two things—she will fall for a young man with sage green eyes,and he will kill her.

Sixteen-year-old Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.
