Blog Tour. Analiese Rising

Welcome to the second week of the Analeise Rising Blog Tour (and my first blog tour of the year) hosted by YA Bound Books Tour. If you have missed any of the previous tour stops, you can see all the lovely reviews and spotlight posts here. Today, I'm sharing with you a book aesthetic inspired by one of the main settings of the novel. Giveaway at the bottom of the post

Title: Analiese Rising
Author: Brenda Drake
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Published: January 8h 2019
Genre: YA Fantasy

Half-Blood meets Antigoddess in a thrilling, romantic new series from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Drake.

When a stranger gives Analiese Jordan a list of names before he dies, the last thing she expects to see is her own on it. Not. Cool. Her search for answers leads to the man’s grandson, Marek, who has dangerous secrets of his own. Both are determined to unlock the mystery of the list.

But the truth is deadly. Analiese is a descendant of the God of Death, known as a Riser, with the power to raise the dead and control them. Finding out she has hidden powers? Cool. Finding out she turns corpses into killers? No, thank you.

Now the trail plants her and Marek in the middle of a war between gods who apparently want to raise an army of the Risen, and Analiese must figure out how to save the world—from herself.

Analiese Rising Book Aesthetic
Can you guess where the novel is set? Yes, you're right: Rome! Even though the story begins in the United States of America, Analiese travels to Europe to help Marek's discover his grandfather's legacy and the reason why her name was written on a notebook kept by a stranger. All this happens while mythological goddesses and gods follow them around through narrow streets and beautiful historical sites.

Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
