EARTHQUAKE
Earthbound #2
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: July 8th 2014

SYNOPSIS

Tavia Michaels has discovered that she’s an Earthbound—a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth—and that a rival faction of Earthbounds, the Reduciata, has created a virus that is literally wiping swaths of the planet out of existence.

Tavia is captured and imprisoned before she can act on this information, along with her eternal lover, Logan. Huddled in a claustrophobic cell, they lose track of the days, their attempts to escape proving as ephemeral as Tavia’s newly gestating powers. But then Tavia and Logan are mysteriously rescued. . . .

They’re brought to the underground headquarters of the Curatoria, another group of Earthbounds that Tavia doesn’t fully trust. There, she’s told that she can save the Earth before it disappears. She agrees.

Tavia quickly realizes that she isn’t like other Earthbound, and as her abilities continue to awaken, they begin to threaten her centuries-long relationship with Logan. When Benson—Tavia’s former best friend and romantic interest—appears at Curatoria headquarters, Tavia will again have to make a choice about who to be with even as she tries to stop the virus that is destroying the world and uncover the truth about the two Earthbound organizations that have her tangled up in their webs.


 

**10 Even More Random Things About Aprilynne Pike**

 

1.) I started wearing glasses when I was five. Coke bottle glasses. People often gasp when they find out what my prescription is. (-8.5) Related, I started wearing contact lenses when I was twelve. I still happily wear them now.:)
 
2.) I used to be a gymnast. Sadly, my parents moved to a tiny town in Idaho when I was a freshman in high school and no gymnastics studios existed there. At all. Still don’t, as far as I know.
 
3.) I hate going to the dentists. Hate it, hate, it hate it! In fact, I hate even the idea of anyone touching my teeth. Bleh!
 
4.) I sucked my thumb till I was eight. Oddly, not a single one of my children ever sucked their thumbs. Not even as babies.
 
5.) People love my very, very straight hair that doesn’t misbehave even in heavy humidity, but the truth is, the more kids I had, the less it would hold a curl and it barely even curls under these days. I wish I had wavy hair.
 
6.) I don’t like to wear patterns. I wear all solid colors and have to frequently remind myself to buy something other than black. I blame Neil Gaiman.;)
 
7.) I am terrible with names. Even people I am relatedto I will sometimes hesitate and think desperately, “What is their name? What is their name?” I forget my characters’ names in books, and the phrase,“Whatsherface” is frequent in my conversations. I’m excellent at remembering faces. Names? No.
 
8.) I am a seriously carnivore; my husband is a borderline vegetarian. When we go out to eat out server frequently swaps our meals. “No, no, the steak is mine, the salad is his.”
 
9.) I like either super milk chocolate, or 90% dark chocolate. I’m not much of a fan of anything in the middle.
 
10.) The fastest I’ve ever finished a book is thirty-eight days. The slowest is six and a half years. Most of my books fall somewhere in the middle.
