Blog Tour: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons


I'm so happy to welcome Kristen Simmons to the blog today to chat about her ideal dinner party and her new release, METALTOWN!

Top 10 fictional characters you 
would have over for dinner

Gansey, so I could stare longingly at him and be delighted that he’s my boyfriend

Magic Mike, for after dinner entertainment (that counts, right?)

Shazi from THE WRATH AND THE DAWN, so she can teach me how to use a bow and arrow (must prep for end of the world)

Kady from ILLUMINAE to help me fix my computer and basically just strut around like a badass

Mather from SNOW LIKE ASHES to fawn over me in his broody way

Hermoine, because she’s the smartest/coolest girl ever

Edward and Jacob for ONE FINAL EPIC SHOWDOWN BWAHAHAHAHA Okay sorry. (They arrive as a pair but only need one seat at the table, thanks to said showdown.)

Peeta. Someone’s got to bake us some bread around here.

Katniss, to be distracted by Peeta so that I can steal…

Gale right out from under her nose. HAHA WIN. 

Metaltown, where factories rule, food is scarce, and hope is in short supply.

The rules of Metaltown are simple: Work hard, keep your head down, and watch your back. You look out for number one, and no one knows that better than Ty. She’s been surviving on the factory line as long as she can remember. But now Ty has Colin. She’s no longer alone; it’s the two of them against the world. That’s something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her. Until it does.

Lena’s future depends on her family’s factory, a beast that demands a ruthless master, and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father. But when a chance encounter with Colin, a dreamer despite his circumstances, exposes Lena to the consequences of her actions, she’ll risk everything to do what’s right.

In Lena, Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder. Colin sees something more. In a world of disease and war, tragedy and betrayal, allies and enemies, all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rules.

An enthralling story of friendship and rebellion, Metaltown will have you believing in the power of hope.
