Ep. #146 - Amanda Foody, author of Daughter of the Burning City

On today's episode, Adam chats with his favorite debut author of 2017, Amanda Foody! Amanda is the author of Daughter of the Burning City which Adam lovingly describes as a YA-Fantasy Carnival Freak Show Murder Mystery. That's a lot of words...

Amanda takes us through building her worlds, determining how magic works in these and explains why this incredible fantasy is a standalone novel. After taking a listen we absolutely implore you to get this book. It's magical and dark and mysterious and all and all wonderful.
