If you wish to participate in the A Spark Unseen tour please email me at Hannah_TBV@yahoo.com with your top three choices of date/group and your top three choices of activity along with your address for the arc. I will do my best to match everyone up to your choices. Everyone who participates in the tour will also receive an arc of A Spark Unseen from Scholastic. If you do not receive a review date we ask that you post your review in August or September and link to review in your post. We would also ask that you rerun your review for The Dark Unwinding ahead of the tour. If you do not wish to rerun the entire review please send me your link and I will promote it for you. If you could also link back to the review in your post for A Spark Unseen that would be wonderful.

IMPORTANT: You can still participate in the tour even if you have NOT read The Dark Unwinding. Let me know in your email and you will also be provided a copy of The Dark Unwinding.

We’d love to hear from you as soon as possible so that Sharon and I will have time to effectively prepare your posts.

When Katharine Tulman’s inheritance is called into question by the rumor that her eccentric uncle is squandering away the family fortune, she is sent to his estate to have him committed to an asylum. But instead of a lunatic, Katharine discovers a genius inventor with his own set of rules, who employs a village of nine hundred people rescued from the workhouses of London.

Katharine is now torn between protecting her own inheritance and preserving the peculiar community she grows to care for deeply. And her choices are made even more complicated by a handsome apprentice, a secretive student, and fears for her own sanity.

As the mysteries of the estate begin to unravel, it is clear that not only is her uncle’s world at stake, but also the state of England as Katharine knows it.

The thrilling sequel to Sharon Cameron’s blockbuster gothic steampunk romance, THE DARK UNWINDING, will captivate readers anew with mystery and intrigue aplenty.

When Katharine Tulman wakes in the middle of the night and accidentally foils a kidnapping attempt on her uncle, she realizes Stranwyne Keep is no longer safe for Uncle Tully and his genius inventions. She flees to Paris, where she hopes to remain undetected and also find the mysterious and handsome Lane, who is suspected to be dead.

But the search for Lane is not easy, and Katharine soon finds herself embroiled in a labyrinth of political intrigue. And with unexpected enemies and allies at every turn, Katharine will have to figure out whom she can trust–if anyone–to protect her uncle from danger once and for all.

Filled with deadly twists, whispering romance, and heart-stopping suspense, this sequel to THE DARK UNWINDING whisks readers off on another thrilling adventure.
