The first book in YA author Alexis Dees’ new trilogy has released and is available in ebook, paperback, and hardback format at book retailers everywhere. The book, entitled Masqueraded: Act One, is a suspenseful tale that will have readers captivated from cover to cover.
It features the spunky Estella Nannette Sinclair who’s looking forward to freedom from her abusive adoptive parents and is haunted by a nefarious wraith known simply as “The Ringmaster.” She will soon find out that her seemingly normal life was actually a façade—the reality is much darker and much more magical.
Masqueraded is a dark psychological thriller and the first chapter of an emotionally-charged YA paranormal series that features a strong female lead character, who is reconciling your own dark past, finding your place in the world, and navigating nuanced–sometimes painful—relationships. All the while, she is discovering new depths of deviant dark magic lurking underneath the surface in the carnival where she escaped the domestic abuse of her youth.
Looking to turn expectations on their head, Dees transforms the world of circuses and carnivals–usually things associated with good clean fun–into a sinister and compelling setting for her novel. The book is sure to transport you to a different, eerie dimension.
And though the ending will leave you wanting more, Dees promises readers won’t have to wait long for other new fantasy books from the new author. Acts Two and Three of the trilogy are in production already along with one stand-alone novel (that has an abandoned theme park as its setting) and two other series.
Readers excited to get their hands on this emotionally-charged YA thriller can place their order today through Amazon. When you pre-order with Amazon’s “1 Click” process, Masqueraded: Act One will automatically be delivered to your kindle or e-reading device.
