Ivy Tate has her whole life ahead of her but nothing to live for. The earth has been spewing its guts for years and her family didn't survive it. The only upside? She's a witch, which, contrary to popular opinion, isn't enough to save her life. Just when she's ready to surrender to the dirt, she's rescued by a crew of scavengers piloting an airship that can barely hold itself upright. The captain has a scar as long as California, a clue he's caused his share of trouble, and his first mate wants to make her an in-flight snack. Not exactly salvation.
Ivy uses her magic to keep her virtues intact, but her luck continues to hang by a thread when she lands in an outpost that takes post-apocalyptic to new lows. As Ivy's options rapidly decrease, and with the looming threat of a slow, hungry death, she falls into strange company; a band of misfits who have found their own way to survive. They offer her clean clothes and water, food that doesn't run away, and a real bed. But Ivy quickly realizes the price for luxuries is high, like sell-your-soul high. Now she has to decide if survival is worth the trade.
BLOOMER is an off-the-beaten path tale about a young woman coming of age in a world that is falling apart, and her will to do more than just survive. Mixing magical realism with speculative fiction, and spicing it up with romance, BLOOMER will appeal to readers who like to follow their heroes and heroines through the battles that ultimately lead them to finding their power.
