Description

On August 27th, 2017, award-winning YA author Caragh M. O’Brien will be launching her new novel The Keep of Ages (8/29/17; ISBN: 978-1-5964-3942-9; $17.99; Roaring Brook Press), the highly anticipated final chapter of her mind-bending Vault of Dreamers trilogy, at the UConn Barnes & Noble in Storrs, CT, at 5 pm! The event is free and open to the public.

About the Book: After discovering the dark secrets of the prestigious Forge School and having her consciousness split in two, Rosie Sinclair must face her most daunting task yet: saving her family from the sinister Dean Berg. Her journey leads her to defunct horror theme park Grisly Valley, where everything is not what it seems. Determined to rescue her parents and stop Berg once and for all, Rosie will uncover the final secret of the dreamers – if she can survive that long.

O’Brien brings together a daring, no-nonsense heroine and a wildly imaginative, unnerving plot to create a high-octane adventure unlike anything readers have seen before. Hailed by Kirkus as “psychologically and philosophically rich,” the timely themes of surveillance, manipulation, and an imbalance of wealth will resonate with citizens in our uncertain global climate, while the unsettling mind games and deep existential questions provide intriguing food for thought. Action-packed and utterly unique, The Keep of Ages is a perfect summer read for fans of mysteries, science fiction, and psychological thrillers.

About the Author: Caragh M. O’Brien is the author of the BIRTHMARKED trilogy and THE VAULT OF DREAMERS series, both from Macmillan/Roaring Brook Press. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Ms. O’Brien was educated at Williams College and earned her MA in the Writing Seminars from Johns Hopkins University. Her young adult science fiction has been honored by the YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults, the Amelia Bloomer Award, the Junior Library Guild, and numerous state reading lists. A former high school English teacher, she now writes young adult novels full time from her home in rural Connecticut.
