Two Heads are bent together under the blinking strings of blue, red and green fairy lights. A red, wild-curled one, and a blonde one, towering over the red. They’r ebent over a book of ancient fairytales. Around them, bookshelves groan under the weight of thousands of dusty books, but the heads don’t pay any attention to those. They are engrossed in the one they are reading. Well, actually one of them is reading, the other is listening. One of them can’t read.

No Plain Rebel (No Ordinary Star #2)
Published July 16, 2016
In No Plain Rebel, Felix finds out the truth.
Or so he thinks. He’s trying to come to terms with that, as well as with the fact that the Clockmaster’s shack has been discovered by his fellow-soldiers, but he can’t exactly concentrate. The match girl’s fiery curls appear before his eyes every ten seconds, distracting him, and then he starts talking to her in his head.
Because she’s no longer there.
The Stadium is looming in the distance.
It’s ten heartbeats to midnight.
I’m excited to finally start No Plain Rebel today. I really enjoyed No Ordinary Star so I can’t wait to find out what happens next to Felix and Astra. Hopefully work goes by fast so I can get home, finish chores and curl up in bed with this beauty.
