Captive by Aimee Carter Blog Tour


Captive (Blackcoat Rebellion #2)
Author: Aimee Carter
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: November 25, 2014

Synopsis:
For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister's niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the dark more than ever.
But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.
As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Pawn (Blackcoat Rebellion #1)
Author: Aimee Carter
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: November 26, 2013

Synopsis:
YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

Author Interview
How did writing Captive differ from writing Pawn?
I wrote PAWN and CAPTIVE five years apart, so a lot of my style and method changed in those years. It’s impossible to compare, but CAPTIVE was ultimately the most difficult book I’ve ever written, thanks to those years in between and having to get back into that mindset.

Who was your favorite character to write in Captive?
Scotia! Hands down my favorite character in CAPTIVE and possibly my favorite in the entire Blackcoat Rebellion series.

If Captive had a theme song what would it be?
Cheating and naming two: Lorde’s Glory and Gore, and Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood. They cover the two main plotlines in the book.

What was the last book you read and loved?
I read a story written by a friend of mine – Carli Segal – who is an aspiring YA author, and I loved it. I’ve also recently read Amy Finngean’s NOT IN THE SCRIPT and really enjoyed it. I’m currently reading A BOLLYWOOD AFFAIR, by Sonali Dev.
