Posted in: Books that make me want to go Aaaarrrrghh, same shit--different day, self publishing delusions, willaful
I chanced upon the blurb for the next book in the “Save the Pearls” series today:
“In the sequel to the award-winning, dystopian novel, Revealing Eden, Eden Newman must adapt into a hybrid human beast if she hopes to become Ronson Bramford’s mate. She has no choice but to undergo her father’s adaptation experiment at his makeshift laboratory in the last patch of rainforest. But when the past rears its ugly head, Eden and Bramford must abandon camp along with their family and friends. Luckily, an Aztec tribe that has survived with the aid of a healing plant provides them with sanctuary—or is it? Too late, Eden realizes she is at the center of an epic spiritual battle between love and war. To survive, she must face her deepest fears or lose everything, including the beastly man she loves.”
(No links included, for obvious reasons.)
It looks to me as if Foyt thought long and hard about the accusation of racism against her first book and went all out to make the sequel even more racist, if humanly possible. Best thing about the comments on this upcoming book at GoodReads: everyone who begins, “Award winning? AWARD WINNING?!”
Have you seen this picture floating around the internet? It’s my absolute fav:
Foyt’s books make me feel like someone re-did that image, so the kid is now looking out onto the same horrible world he has to live in.
