Okay, lots to cover in this post BUT FIRST:
The Darkest Minds is iBooks' Book of the Week... which means that you can download this 500 page beauty FOR FREE on all of your iOS/Apple devices!! Here is the link to the iBooks page. Go forth! Download! Tell your friends to download! Force it on your family members! ;)
If you're new to the series, or thinking about starting, here's the order:
Book 1: The Darkest Minds
e-novella: In Time
Book 2: Never Fade
e-novella: Sparks Rise
Book 3: In the Afterlight
(The e-novellas are absolutely not required reading, but they do flesh out the world and connect with the main storyline.)
If that isn't enough excitement for you (It is for me--someone bring the smelling salts!), I'm so thrilled and incredibly excited to tell you guys that The Darkest Minds series is debuting at #7 on The New York Times series bestseller list!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting the series over the last three years--it's been such an incredible journey, and I can't believe that there won't be more books, that I won't get to keep checking in with the gang (aka ruining their young lives). How lucky am I that I not only got to tell a story with characters I love, but also connect with all of you? Thank you for coming on this crazy ride with me.
Next week, I think I'll go ahead and post a FAQ list for the final book and the series, but I still want to give folks another week to finish reading before I potentially spoil them!
Also, if it's of interest, In the Afterlight's playlist is up in full on Spotify! Have yourself a lil'listen:
