Harper Summer 2016 Tour: Traitor Angels (+ Giveaways)

Click here to check out the rest of the blogs on the tour!
I'm so thrilled to be a part of this massive tour featuring books coming out from Harper Collins this summer! There are a lot of great teen titles included on the tour, and for my post today, I'm going to be talking about Traitor Angels. I'm really excited for another novel from author Anne Blankman, who has also written the Prisoner of Night and Fog duology. Her knack for writing compelling historical fiction that will appeal to a YA audience is undeniable, and I love that this one is (sort of) about a literary figure. Here's a little more about the book itself:

Traitor Angels book cover
Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: May 3, 2016

Six years have passed since England’s King Charles II returned from exile to reclaim the throne, ushering in a new era of stability for his subjects. 

Except for Elizabeth Milton. The daughter of notorious poet John Milton, Elizabeth has never known her place in this shifting world—except by her father’s side. By day she helps transcribe his latest masterpiece, the epic poem Paradise Lost, and by night she learns languages and sword fighting. Although she does not dare object, she suspects that he’s training her for a mission whose purpose she cannot fathom. 

Until one night the reason becomes clear: the king’s man arrive at her family’s country home to arrest her father. Determined to save him, Elizabeth follows his one cryptic clue and journeys to Oxford, accompanied by her father’s mysterious young houseguest, Antonio Vivani, a darkly handsome Italian scientist who surprises her at every turn. Funny, brilliant, and passionate, Antonio seems just as determined to protect her father as she is—but can she trust him with her heart? 

When the two discover that Milton has planted an explosive secret in the half-finished Paradise Lost—a secret the king and his aristocratic supporters are desperate to conceal—Elizabeth is faced with a devastating choice: cling to the shelter of her old life or risk cracking the code, unleashing a secret that could save her father…and tear apart the very fabric of society.
