Doug (@ SciFiGuy.ca) recently interviewed Lilith Saintcrow. (He also offered a giveaway of the 2nd book in the Strange Angels series. Unfortunately, that offer has expired.) Anyway, if you're interested in learning/hearing more from the author... visit here. Or of course, you can visit Saintcrow's website/journal here.
I've read several of Lilith Saintcrow's adult books (all of the Dante Valentine series , the Society books , the first of the Jill Kismet books). She has several other books I hope to read in the future. One isThe Demon's Librarian (Inspired by blogger Wendy @ The Misadventures of Super Librarian) — need I say more? Librarian is the key word in that title. Another is Steelflower which, if I understand correctly, has a thief and assassin as the main character. I have a thing for thief and assassin protagonists. Of course I plan to finish the Jill Kismet series. Plus I may read the other books. Etc., Etc.
Anyway, this will be my first time reading one of her YA works. I expect I'll enjoy it, but that it may be somewhat dark, if not this book then later in the series (based on what I've read of her other books and from the interview mentioned above).
