The Keepsake blog tour!

Welcome to my stop for The Keepsake blog tour, hosted by YA Book Bound!

I've been seeing this book on Netgalley, and when I saw that YA  Book Bound was also hosting a tour on it, I thought that it was a sign for me to sign up! The cover looks gorgeous, the concept sounds amazing...what more did I need?

Firstly, let me just say... the cover is flawless! This cover is one of the best covers I've seen so far this year - although it has an actual person (which usually makes covers look funny), it manages to look ethereal, and it really captured my eye!

Secondly, doesn't the concept sound beautiful? It's part of a series, but yeah a "magical locket"? "An empress?" Doesn't that sound great?

 In this second Empress Chronicles book, Liz and Sisi continue their intertwined journey through time. On the heels of discovering a magical locket in the empress diary, Liz comes to understand its very special power: the wearer must speak the truth. Not only that, but it turns out that there are three lockets, each with their own magic and power.

Meanwhile, Sisi realizes that she’s communicating with a girl who lives 150 years in the future. A girl who knows what awaits her if she marries the emperor: lack of personal freedom and a legacy that will refer to her as the "reluctant empress."

With the world's future hanging in the balance, the two heroines must work together to thwart Lola, whose ambition to rule the Habsburg Empire will rewrite history, and lead to a terrifying new version of reality

Finally, these promo pictures - I love the graphics! They're so minimalistic, and I like the clash of green and pink. Pink represents Sisi and green Liz. I especially love the one about girl power - it's definitely a concept that is reiterated in this book! 

And finally...what's a blog tour without a giveaway? Enter here!
