The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow - Map Reveal Tour

Today I'm pleased to be part of Simon & Schuster Canada's The Scorpion Rules Map Tour. If you've read The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow, you'll know how flipping amazing Erin's world and characters are. If not, here's a few quotes from my review which you can access here:

"I hate to break this to you under these circumstances, really truly I do, but...The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow is a book you can't miss. "
" - if I could give this book 5 goats stuck in a tree out of 5, I would."
"With a crazy terminator feel, The Scorpion Rules was phenomenal."

More about The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
A world battered by climate shift and war turns to an ancient method of keeping peace: the exchange of hostages. The Children of Peace - sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals - are raised together in small, isolated schools called Preceptures. There, they learn history and political theory, and are taught to gracefully accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.

Greta Gustafsen Stuart, Duchess of Halifax and Crown Princess of the Pan-Polar Confederation, is the pride of the North American Precepture. Learned and disciplined, Greta is proud of her role in keeping the global peace, even though, with her country controlling two-thirds of the world’s most war-worthy resource — water — she has little chance of reaching adulthood alive.

Enter Elián Palnik, the Precepture’s newest hostage and biggest problem. Greta’s world begins to tilt the moment she sees Elián dragged into the school in chains. The Precepture’s insidious surveillance, its small punishments and rewards, can make no dent in Elián, who is not interested in dignity and tradition, and doesn’t even accept the right of the UN to keep hostages.

What will happen to Elián and Greta as their two nations inch closer to war?
