Our final release of the year is here! We are so excited for the release of Amanda Pavlov's debut Mind Like A Diamond.
You don't have to believe in magic for it to kill you.
Seventeen-year-old gymnast, Lisette Colbert, is skeptical of her criminal mother’s claim that they are descendants of pirate witches. But on Halloween night, Lisette will come face to face with indisputable proof.
Lured by a $10,000 prize, Lisette recruits her best friend Xavier and together they enter The 13th Realm of Hell—an escape-room style Haunted House run by a mysterious coven. Xavier has his reservations, especially after reading the fine print on the waiver to enter.
Lisette is too focused on proving herself to consider the risks. With him or without him, she is determined to complete all thirteen realms. If she wins the prize money, she’ll avoid eviction from her beloved French Quarter apartment. But the witches who run the show don’t write happy endings.
"Amanda Pavlov does an amazing job letting the reader into Lisette's life, and relationships. Pavlov writing style is amazing, and help me in such anticipation. She easily painted a picture in my mind of what was going on." -Sydney K, NetGalley Review
Tonight, 8PM CT/ 9PM EST Amanda will be on Instagram Live with author Ginny Myers Sain of Dark and Shallow Lies. Tune in at Amanda's profile at @PavlovsBooks
"I loved all the different elements and the story really sank its claws into me as the plot continued to unfold. It was such a unique read filled with twists and turns. (I love a good twist.) What a fabulous debut and I’m really hoping there’s a book two." -Bekah B., GoodReads Review
"The author's writing style is worth of every praise. The story held me in anticipation, and the sentences were so beautifully decorated it blew my mind. The metaphors and similes were very clever and served to confirm and accentuate the author's talent." -Katarina R., NetGalley Review
