About the Author
Rhoda Belleza was raised in Los Angeles, where she grew up writing X-Files fanfiction and stuffing her face with avocados. She's a children's editor at a publishing house and writes from a sunny Brooklyn apartment stuffed with far too many bikes and far too many shoes. When she's not writing, Rhoda obsesses over nail art tutorials, watches kung fu movies, and sews together crooked things that pass for clothes. Empress of a Thousand Skies is her debut novel. Follow her on Twitter @rhodabee.

The author basically gives us a metaphor for what’s happening in our country today. A leader who uses fear to manipulate others into racial profiling? An entire race of people who want to be seen as humans and not religious freaks? Innocent refugees trying to escape their past and prove they aren’t dangerous? Throw in two kick ass characters on a roller coaster ride through this new galaxy and you’ve got a super fun and engaging debut!
If you're skeptical about YA novels, give Empress of a Thousand Skies a chance! It almost instantly makes you forget that it's a YA novel. The characters are well developed and the different POV's and twists and turns come together nicely and keep you intrigued from beginning to end. I can't wait for book 2!
