One of my favorite authors in the world, Tosca Lee, is releasing her newest novel, The Progeny on May 24, 2016. That is 5 days away, folks! And if you are in the Lincoln, NE area, stop by and visit this Saturday May 21st at Barnes and Noble where she will be signing The Progeny from 2pm-4pm.
The Progeny Blurb/Summation(summary from Netgalley):
New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee brings a modern twist to an ancient mystery surrounding the most notorious female serial killer of all time. A fast-paced thriller for fans of Ted Dekker’s The Books of Mortals, Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, and BBC America’s hit series Orphan Black.
Emily Jacobs is the descendant of a serial killer.
Now, she’s become the hunted. She’s on a quest that will take her to the secret underground of Europe and the inner circles of three ancient orders—one determined to kill her, one devoted to keeping her alive, and one she must ultimately save.
Filled with adrenaline, romance, and reversals, The Progeny is the present-day saga of a 400-year-old war between the uncanny descendants of “Blood Countess” Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time, and a secret society dedicated to erasing every one of her descendants. A story about the search for self filled with centuries-old intrigues against the backdrop of atrocity and hope.
Who is Elizabeth Bathory?
Another thing I love about Tosca, is that she isn’t afraid to dive into history and tell its story in a clear, yet creative way.
I never heard of Elizabeth Bathory, according to Wikipedia, she was the most prolific female murderer, killing hundreds of young women between the years 1585-1610. She was later imprisoned and died four years later. So Progeny is about a girl descended from this real life historical figure.
A great recipe for a story. Genius idea, Tosca!
I have to get my thriller fix. How about you? Pre-Order The Progeny now and we can read/discuss/share!
