Worlds Beneath by K.A. Emmons // BLOG TOUR + GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, July 4, 2018

Hello, Lovely People!! So, today is actually a very exciting & important day, because one of my dear friends is releasing her 2nd book?? And she asked me to participate in spreading the good news! *happy flailing

I know you guys know this about me, but as a writer, when I see my fellow writer-friends following their dreams & publishing their stories, it just does something to me!! It just makes me feel so proud & happy for my friends... 


So without further ado, allow me to introduce my writing-buddy, Kate! If you guy have been following my blog for a while, you'll probably remember my post from last summer about Kate's debut novel, The Blood Racewhich is actually the prelude to the book we are discussing today. 

But before we get started....... CAN I JUST GUSH ABOUT THIS GORGEOUS COVER??? I MEAN. LOOK AT IT.

TITLE: Worlds Beneath (Book #2)
AUTHOR: K.A. Emmons
PUBLISH DATE: July 1st, 2018

Isn't this cover absolutely stunning??? I'm high-key in love with it. And I felt the same way about The Blood Race cover too... So freaking beautiful.


I used to think that seeing was believing, but now, as I struggle to stay alive below the ravine, I begin to realize that - good or bad - I will see whatever I believe.

“Who are you, Icarus, that the earth opens its mouth to receive your blood?” Sensei’s words were my last thoughts before I fell into the bottomless ravine, plunging toward my own death, and bringing about Hawk’s at the same time. Or so I thought.

I woke up underwater. I awoke in a strange and unfamiliar world, filled with maze-like forest, shadows, and nightmares seemingly as vivid and dangerous as reality. I had no idea who I was, or how I got there - I couldn’t remember anything, until I remembered her: Hawk. The other half of my soul.

I knew that in order for her to stay alive, I had to survive and find a way out. But that’s easier said than done when you’re trapped in a realm as deadly as your every thought - and dominated by a hierarchy of ravenous wolf packs.

Alerted by a dream, I realize that Hawk has left the Dimension to come find me. For an instant, I rediscover hope. But that hope quickly burns to ash when I realize that we may not be the only ones down here. Someone else with a thirst for her blood may have survived the fall too. And I may have just lured her right into the jaws of a predator even fiercer than the wolves.



When she’s not hermiting away in her colorfully-painted home office writing her next science fiction, passionate story-teller and adventurer Kate Emmons is probably on the road for a surf or hiking trip, listening to vinyls, or going for a power run. Emmons’ debut novel The Blood Race is the first book in her YA science fiction/fantasy thriller series. Get connected with Kate on your favorite social platform, and be sure to check out her website!



Q1: What inspired you to write this series?

K.A. Emmons: As with most of my books, the idea just dropped into my head one day. I saw the storyline of book 1 in one big panoramic shot in my head, and just sat down and started writing it very soon after.

Q2: If you had to pitch this book as a hybrid of two (or more) other books, which ones would it consist of and why?

K.A. Emmons: That’s such a tricky question! I’m really not a fiction reader myself, so I’ll have to quote some of my readers here: a lot of people have said it reminds them of C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Giver by Lois Lowry.

Q3: Are there any new characters we can expect to meet in this book that we didn't meet in book #1?

K.A. Emmons: Definitely! There’s a few new faces in Worlds Beneath, as well as some interesting twists that I’m pretty darn pumped for. One in particular really helps shape the story and add to the thickening plot, as they say.

Q4: What do you hope people walk away with after reading Worlds Beneath? In other words, what is the theme of your story?

K.A. Emmons: Trusting that there is a warrior within you. That’s the biggest theme. Discovering and trusting in the fact that you are WAY more powerful than you realize. Your thoughts have power. And you can completely destroy the demons that haunt you.

Q5: What can we expect in book #3??

K.A. Emmons:
 Something DIFFERENT! Book 3 has a lot of new faces and a lot of new flavors that I’m really really excited to share and see what you guys think of. I won’t say more than that right now, but yes… expect something different.

Q6: Where can everyone go to snag their personal copy of Worlds Beneath, so they can enjoy it?

K.A. Emmons: Worlds Beneath (aaaand The Blood Race) are available everywhere books are sold online! You can snag Worlds Beneath on Amazon here. :)
