About the Author

Sarah Raughley grew up in Southern Ontario writing stories about freakish little girls with powers because she secretly wanted to be one. She is a huge fangirl of anything from manga to sci-fi fantasy TV to Japanese role-playing games and other geeky things, all of which have largely inspired her writing. Sarah has been nominated for the Aurora Award for Best YA Novel and works in the community doing writing workshops for youths and adults. On top of being a YA writer, Sarah has a PhD in English, which makes her a doctor, so it turns out she didn't have to go to medical school after all. As an academic, Sarah has taught undergraduate courses and acted as a postdoctoral fellow. Her research concerns representations of race and gender in popular media culture, youth culture, and postcolonialism. She has written and edited articles in political, cultural, and academic publications. She continues to use her voice for good. You can find her online at SarahRaughley.com.

Reviews

"With its cast of diverse, well-drawn heroines, colourful world building, and action-packed storyline, FATE OF FLAMES is an immersive and monstrously fun read."--Elsie Chapman, author of DUALED and DIVIDED
"This series opener has it all: strong females, intrigue, a dash of romance, monsters, and a sequel in the wings."--Kirkus Reviews
"In a thrilling adventure with echoes of Pacific Rim, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Raughley (Feather Bound) depicts the cost of power, the lure of fame, and the trauma of overwhelming stress in a compelling story with memorably flawed heroines... An engrossing kickoff to the Effigies series."--Publishers Weekly
"A compelling concept, and the mix of fragility, defiance, strength, and utter exhaustion that plays out in the girls feels authentic... A sequel will likely be eagerly anticipated, as these four together have only begun to find their groove, and it's clear there are more intriguing and disturbing details about this world to uncover."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
