3 Authors I Think Deserve More Attention
Cristin Terrill
Cristin is the author of All Our Yesterdays:
What would you change?

Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it... at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.

All Our Yesterdays is a beautifully written, flawlessly plotted novel, full of sacrifice, love...and time travel. Its such an addictive read. For Cristin's first novel, its very evident she's destined for great things!

Maria V. Snyder

Poison Study (Study, #1)Maria is the author of many books, her first one being Poison Study:

Choose: A quick death…Or slow poison...

About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can't control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear...

Each of Maria's books is just as amazing as the last, she creates brilliant fantasy worlds filled with magic and romance. If you like authors who write a few series' set in the same world in different places (sort of like The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices). Even better, Maria's writing more books set in Ixia/Sitia which come out next year, so more magicky awesomeness!

C.J Redwine

C.J is the author of the Couriers Daughter Trilogy (the last one: Deliverance, has just been released!).
The first book is Defiance:
Defiance (Defiance #1)
While the other girls in the walled city-state of Baalboden learn to sew and dance, Rachel Adams learns to track and hunt. While they bend like reeds to the will of their male Protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice.

When Rachel's father fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the city's brutal Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector: her father's apprentice, Logan—the boy she declared her love to and who turned her down two years before. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can't be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making

C.J is another great fantasy author who just draws you into her world with her gripping storyline. Defiance is filled with love, revenge... and a wormy dragon thing!

Each author has a strong female protagonist, which is just AWESOME.

Also, each of the books has REALLY PRETTY covers.
