SNEAK PEEK: Wall of Wishes by Suzy Vadori

WALL OF WISHES Final Book in The Fountain Series
By Two-Time Aurora Award Finalist, Suzy Vadori

The book is available worldwide TODAY in digital and print formats at Owls’ Nest Books.

Calgary’s bestselling author Suzy Vadori announces early release of the long-awaited third book in The Fountain Series, Wall of Wishes. The book, initially scheduled to launch in September 2020, will drop in June to meet an overwhelming number of fan requests. 

“Like many Calgary authors, I rely on large trade shows, community and school events to connect with my readers,” says Vadori. “And because of the pandemic, even September looks like it will be difficult to be in crowds. We’re fast-tracking this book to get it in readers’ hands sooner and moving everything online.”

Response to the new date on social media has been encouraging. “My readers are really excited about this book, and I’ve partnered with Owl’s Nest Books to create a unique online launch experience that everyone can get involved with,” says Vadori.

Independent Calgary bookstore Owl’s Nest Books is among many Canadian local businesses that have stepped up their service during this challenging time, offering curbside pickup and free local delivery. Signed and personalized copies of Wall of Wishes, as well as the first two books of The Fountain Series (The Fountain, The West Woods) will be available for purchase exclusively from Owl’s Nest Books’ website http://www.owlsnestbooks.com/ during a pre-order window from June 21-26, 2020.

Online events leading up to the launch will stream on Suzy’s social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) from June 21-26 and will include interviews with popular literary podcasters, a behind the scenes look at the making of The Fountain Series, a feature on Owl’s Nest Books, and an interactive trivia event for lovers of Young Adult books with prizes to be won.

Wall of Wishes: Book Three

Save the fountain or risk disappearing…

Hidden deep in the woods is a secret fountain that has granted St. Augustus students’ wishes for nearly a century, including the wish responsible for Ava’s very existence. When she learns that the woods will soon be destroyed to make way for a new road, Ava must do whatever it takes to save the fountain, or risk her own life being erased.

New girl Courtney knows more about the school’s magic than she’s letting on and has something to gain from the fountain’s destruction. Joining forces with Courtney seems the only way to stop the road, but Ava and Courtney share a thorny past. Trusting her is impossible, but if she doesn’t, Ava could disappear forever.

The Fountain: Book One

 Careful what you wish for. It just might come true. 

In the forbidden West Woods, Ava stumbles on the secret fountain that has granted wishes to St. Augustus students for generations. Unknowingly, she watches the coin she tosses disappear and with it the world around her as she knows it.

In a quest to undo the damage she’s done, she and alumni kid Ethan break every campus rule unravelling a tangled web of history. Ava discovers that what’s right isn’t always clear and finds herself torn between a love she’s always known and one she has yet to explore.

The Fountain is a Prix Aurora Award 2016 Finalist For Best Young Adult Novel. Careful what you wish for. It just might come true. 

“The Fountain is not your ordinary YA boarding school novel. With magic, mystery and romance woven together in just the right measure, it is sure to be a ‘must read’ with teens everywhere.” – Jacqueline Guest, author of Ghost Messages

 The West Woods: Book Two

Courtney Wallis wants nothing more than to escape St. Augustus boarding school. After uncovering a well-kept secret about the school’s founder, Isaac Young, Courtney turns to the school’s magic to convince her dad to let her leave. Things take a turn when she meets Cole, who lives in the nearby town of Evergreen. He gives her hope that things might not be so bad. However, the school’s fountain has other ideas, and binds Courtney to her ambition, no matter the cost.

As Courtney struggles to keep the magic from taking over, she and her friends get drawn into the mystery woven into the school’s fabric. Everything seems to lead back to the forbidden West Woods. Together, she and her friends seek out the spirits of the past to ask for help, and find themselves in much deeper than they’d bargained for. If they succeed, Courtney could be free of the magic. If they fail, she may never be the same.
