Click the image to see my booksta post!

Today I’m excited to participate in the Bookstagram & Creative Blog Tour for The Key to Fear by Kristin Cast! The Key to Fear is the first book in a young adult dystopian trilogy publishing on October 13, 2020 from Blackstone Publishing!

About the Book

Title: The Key to Fear
Author: Kristin Cast
Series: The Key #1
Publisher: Blackstone Publishing
Publishing Date: October 13th, 2020
Genres: YA Dystopian

No touching today for a healthy tomorrow.

For fifty years, the Key Corporation has defended humanity against a deadly virus that spreads through touch. Lovers don’t kiss, or even hold hands. Personal boundaries are valued above all. Break the laws, and you’ll face execution.

Elodie, a talented young nurse, believes in the mission of the Key and has never questioned the laws that control her life. But Elodie is forced to break the rules when she sets out in search of a terminal patient who goes missing while under her care.

From the outside, it seems like Aiden was given everything he could want from the Key—a purpose, an education, and a future. But Aiden knows more than he’s letting on, and the dark secrets he’s keeping could tear the Key’s strict society apart.

When Elodie and Aiden’s lives collide, the fallout will be devastating. What do you do when the brutal system that once kept you safe hunts you down? Run.


To come.
