What was your inspiration for writing this book?
I've always wanted the middle book of the Elemental trilogy to have a sort of The Bourne Identity feel, i.e., protagonist with no memory, not sure why he is being chased, except that I want it to be the girl who is being chased.
What are you working on now?
Book 3 of the Elemental trilogy, for which I am going for a Return of the King vibe--but probably only in my head.
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Perilous Sea
by Sherry Thomas
Balzer + Bray
From acclaimed author Sherry Thomas comes the striking sequel to The Burning Sky, book two in the Elemental Trilogy, for fans of Cinda Williams Chima, Rae Carson, and Kristin Cashore.
After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.
Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.
Sherry Thomas brings her trademark blend of dazzling magic, heartbreaking romance, and exciting action in this striking sequel to The Burning Sky.
