Book Trailer Reveal: THE CADET OF TILDOR by Alex Lidell

I am so excited to be part of Alex Lidell's trailer reveal today! I got to read THE CADET OF TILDOR not long ago as an ARC, and it was INCREDIBLE! I loved it SO MUCH! I had been dying to read a book like it for a very long time.


Title: The Cadet of Tildor
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers (Penguin)
Age Group: Young Adult
Genre: High fantasy

And today, she's releasing her book trailer! She went all out for it. It was filmed in Italy by the Medieval Reenactment Group “Liberi Lusenta.” How awesome is that? I love watching book trailers that have had so much work put into them.

Summary:

Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.



Bio:

Alex is a YA fantasy author, a Tamora Pierce addict, a horse rider, and paramedic. The latter two tend to hand in hand a bit more often than one would like. Alex started writing at 2 am.

I love book trailers and that was good one. Wish I had a budget for my own, but I did it with no money yet Carrie did a great job.

Wow, that was awesome. I've become hooked on "Once Upon a Time" and will probably start reading the genre when I catch up with my BTR list. This sounds good. Thanks, Peggy & Alex!

Ooh! What fun! I love Tamora Pierce, and this one sounds like an amazing twist on a fun idea - female warriors! I'm WAY too chicken to be one, but I love to read about them :)

Jennifer Hillier said...

This sounds like a great book. I love a strong female character. The idea of a "Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin" book sounds like my type of book. I'd love to read it. Thanks for the giveaway.
