Well by now you must know how crazy obsess I am with the Velvet Trilogy by Temple West, and also by now you should know that I got to read Cashmere after almost two years of waiting for it.
Now I’m extremely happy to be part of the blog tour and share my thoughts with you about the book, because I love the story and I wish everyone could just pick up Velvet and Cashmere and read them.
But I cannot force you to do it so the next best thing I can do is convince you by telling you how much I loved it. So in honor of Cashmere coming out Valentine’s Day I made a fool of myself and made a little (not so little is quite long) video about my love for this book.
Author: Temple West
Release Date: February 14, 2017
Publisher: In Medias Res Publications
This high-stakes sequel to Velvet proves that when you’re the only human caught in a paranormal war, high school can get a little tricky. With Adrian’s brother trapped in hell, the Praetorian Guard has made Stony Creek their base-of-operations, but Caitlin has a bad feeling they’re more interested in her than in finding Lucian. Caught in a sea of conspiracies and lies, Caitlin and Adrian perform a risky magical procedure in an attempt to protect Caitlin from compulsion.
Relieved that her nightmares have ended, Caitlin is disturbed to find that something even stranger has taken their place.
Determined to get on with her life, even amid a crazy paranormal manhunt, she applies for a competitive summer fashion internship in New York. Searching desperately for answers about what Caitlin might be, how Adrian’s father is involved, and where Lucian has been kidnapped to, Caitlin and Adrian must rely on each other to survive. But when the truth finally comes to light, the consequences are unimaginable.
And the question still haunts them both: even if they survive, how will they deal with the fact that Adrian is immortal and Caitlin is not?
I will later post an actual written review, later on, but I wanted to let you know about how much I loved it via video.
Here it goes.
Now About Temple West:
Temple West, debut author of the YA paranormal romance Velvet, is as nerdy in real life as she is on the Twitter. Armed with a very shiny English degree, she spent four months in Oxford holed up at the Radcliffe Camera amongst the hush of ancient books and the rich musk of academia. Returning to Los Angeles, she acquired a concurrent degree in film, mostly as an excuse to write essays about The Princess Bride and Hook. She can sew (poorly), drive stick (please fasten your seatbelt), and mostly lift her feet off the ground while stuttering into first gear on a very small motorcycle. She currently lives in Seattle and is the proud mother to a one-year-old laptop and a vintage Remington typewriter.
