The Rosie Black Chronicles by Lara Morgan

Well, how brilliant is this trailer?

I am very psyched for this one - brilliant premise, funky cover art, Australian and it's receiving some outstanding reviews.

It's out now in Australia and New Zealand. I spotted a copy @ Kmart and the cover looks stunning in the flesh, the black ink raised and bumpy :) My copy is flying to me after winning one from The Book Gryffin. (yay! Thanks Tye)

The Rosie Black Chronicles
by Lara Morgan
Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the “Centrals”; the have-nots, the “Bankers”; and the fringe dwellers, the “Ferals”.
Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it – and will kill to get it.
Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss?
From Earth to Mars, Rosie must learn the secrets of the box – before it’s too late.

In other news. The Rain! Argh. I live on the coast and it's rained for weeks and weeks and now it's forecast to pretty much rain until Christmas. It's thundering-down, blast-in-your-face, insane-overflowing-gutters stuff.
Have a good (hopefully sunny weekend)



  1. I got this too! And the trailer is awesome. They have been some great Aussie titles released recently :)

  2. I am SO tired. I also won a copy from The Book Gryffin. I didn't know about it until a few days ago. I would've thought you'd have received it already since you commented a while ago on the blog... I haven't seen any copies of it yet. I need to look harder. :/

    Btw, how's writing going?

  3. Oooo this sounds amazing! Totally brilliant trailer!

    I feel ya on rain. I'm a Florida girl and it rains here - alllot. The irony? It's called the Sunshine state.

    The cool thing is it's still sunny even during the rain.

  4. That is a very cool trailer and I am intrigued by this book. I hope it comes out over here soon.

  5. Oh, I just saw that on the shelves yesterday!

  6. I saw that at the bookstore and wanted to get it.
    Thanks for the trailer & Info!

  8. sounds very cool, i love the cover, but then again i always love a silluette of a city.
