The Story Peddler
Updated: Sep 23, 2021
Y'all! I am so stoked because Eden Sword is going to share a May 1st book birthday with not one but two fabulous books! EEK! The first is Unbreakable by Sara Ella and can I just tell you that after reading Unblemished and Unraveling I am DYING to get my hands on Unbreakable.
The second, which is the real MVP of this little blog post, is The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin. Double EEK!
"Selling stories is deadly business."
Tanwen doesn't just tell stories--she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.
During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king's guard hunts her down...and they're not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she's not the only outlaw in the empire. There's a rebel group of weavers...and they're after her too.
