A Time to Die Blog Tour, Review + Author Interview


How would you live if you knew the day you'd die?

Parvin Blackwater believes she has wasted her life. At only seventeen, she has one year left according to the Clock by her bedside. In a last-ditch effort to make a difference, she tries to rescue Radicals from the government's crooked justice system.

But when the authorities find out about her illegal activity, they cast her through the Wall -- her people's death sentence. What she finds on the other side about the world, about eternity, and about herself changes Parvin forever and might just save her people. But her clock is running out.

So, I had this great and amazing review I had written for A Time to Die, but... I lost it. :( Oh well *sigh*.  So while I quickly scramble for a new post, that is unfortunately a day late, (I do apologize) I'll talk about Nadine. She is awesome. I've never met her personally, but I've been following her on her blog for a while, and joined the Ninja team a few months ago. Most of that was before I read her first book, which may seem strange, but I really enjoyed it. I like getting to know authors separate from their books, because authors are really awesome people. And I have favorite authors whose books may not be a bestseller, but because I enjoy the author. So while I was a fan of Nadine for what feels like forever, I hadn't read any of her books until this summer.
I enjoyed the characters a lot. I loved the Hawke's, Reid, Willow, Parvin, and others. One thing I really loved about the book was how Nadine had a modern day message- that applies to any of us- and has it in a dystopian society.

               ~Parvin thought she knew when she was going to die, but when the unexpected happens she realizes how much of her life has wasted. What will she do now that she has life?~

Why should you read it? Because the second is even better!  If you are a fan of dystopian, super cool inventions, and cultures, then you should read A Time to Die.

                                                     How will you live?



Author Interview:

Now that you've finished A Time to Rise, what is your next process?
It’s so weird being done with the Out of Time Series! I miss it already. But I’ve been exploring some fantasy ideas and haven’t settled on one yet—I just love them ALL! I hope to start on a draft very soon and then I’ll have more info!

How surprised are you with your fans? What do you enjoy about them?
I love this question! MY FANS ARE AMAZING. I just remember being certain that the entire world would hate my book (A Time to Die) when it first came out and my jaw’s been on the floor ever since. They show constant enthusiasm over my stories, and connections with my characters. I love when fans contact me and tell me what my books made them feel or think about. I love their fan art and their commitment to being encouraging and awesome. Just…so much. They probably make me cry more than anyone else does. But they’re always happy tears. :'D

Which character that you've written do you wish you were like?
I wish I was more like Solomon. He’s so patient. Holy cow. I don’t know how he does it. (That aspect of his character is taken from my husband — the kindest and most patient man in existence.) I would love to be more kind and more patient and more humble

Have you considered writing other genre's (with your own touch of course) like sic-fi, and steampunk? Or even creating a new genre?

I’d love to explore all the genres!! But my heart is currently turning to fantasy. Dystopian will always have its own special chamber in my heart, but that was a one-time visit, I think.

What was your favorite book to write?
My favorite book to write was probably A Time to Die because that one felt the most like a journey of discovering myself. It came solely from passion—not deadlines or plotting or over-thinking. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Thank you so much for having me! I loved these questions. Are we done already? ;-)


Don't forget to sign up for the Facebook party in October!


I received an e-copy of the book from the author for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
