Release Day Blitz: Noir (The Illumination Paradox #2) by Jacqueline Garlick

With Urlick imprisoned for the murder of Professor Smrt, Eyelet must find her way back through the Infirm-infested woods, to the forbidden city of Brethren, to free Urlick before it’s too late.

Along the way, she elicits the help of Crazy Legs, Urlick’s longtime friend. Together they overthrow a travelling freak show train destined for Brethren, with plans to use it to distract the city, so Urlick can make an escape. But Eyelet is lead astray, when a haunting image from her past appears in an abandoned factory at the edge of town. There she unearths a series of ungodly secrets and soon finds herself, imprisoned.

Will C.L. be able to save them both from their fates?
Or will he too, fall prey to the tyranny of Brethren's newest Ruler?

Rumor has it the Ruler has secrets of her own.
Secrets she’s determined to keep.
Seems an heir may have been overlooked.
The true heir to the Commonwealth throne.

Personal Bio:

Jacqueline Garlick is an author of young adult and new adult fiction. She loves strong heroines, despises whiny sidekicks, and adores a good story about a triumphant underdog. (Doesn't everyone?)
 Her edgy rule-breaking Tim Burton-esque style of writing has earned her the nickname…the Quentin Tarantino of YA…among writing friends.  She loves to read, write, and paint (both on walls and on paper) and has a love/hate relationship with chocolate, grammar, and technology. You will always find a purple wall in her house (currently her writing room), and there may or may not be a hidden passageway that leads to a mystery room. (Okay, so you won't find a hidden passageway, but a girl can dream, can't she?) Oh, and tea. There
 will always be tea. And super cool cups from which to drink it.

In her former life, Jacqueline was a teacher (both grade school and college-don't ask) but that’s another story. More recently she is a graduate of Ellen Hopkin's Nevada Mentor Program and a student of James Scott Bell, Christopher Vogler and Don Maass. An excerpt from Lumière earned her the 2012 Don Maass Break Out Novel Intensive Scholarship.
