SCAVENGER HUNT POST

For my post in the YA Scavenger Hunt, I'm honored to be hosting Madeline Dyer, author of The Untamed Series:



MADELINE DYER lives on a farm in the southwest of England, where she hangs out with her Shetland ponies and writes young adult books—sometimes, at the same time. She holds a BA Honors degree in English from the University of Exeter, and several presses have published her fiction. Madeline has a strong love for anything dystopian, ghostly, or paranormal, and she can frequently be found exploring wild places. At least one notebook is known to follow her wherever she goes.

For the hunt, Madeline is giving away Book 1: Untamed


**2017 SIBA Award Winner for Best Dystopian Novel** 

In a world where addiction is encouraged, one girl must fight to stay clean... 

As one of the last Untamed humans left in the world, Seven's life has always been controlled by tight rules. Stay away from the Enhanced. Don't question your leader. And, most importantly, never switch sides--because once you're Enhanced there's no going back. Even if you have become the perfect human being.

But after a disastrous raid on an Enhanced city, Seven soon finds herself in her enemy's power. Realizing it's only a matter of time before she too develops a taste for the chemical augmenters responsible for the erosion of humanity, Seven knows she must act quickly if she's to escape and save her family from the same fate.

Yet, as one of the most powerful Seers that the Untamed and Enhanced have ever known, Seven quickly discovers that she alone holds the key to the survival of only one race. But things aren't clear-cut anymore, and with Seven now questioning the very beliefs she was raised on, she knows she has an important choice to make. One that has two very different outcomes.

Seven must choose wisely whose side she joins, for the War of Humanity is underway, and Death never takes kindly to traitors.

  1. I have done a real scavenger hunt! My favorite one was for an undergrad creative writing course and the highlight was when I stopped to get a drink and some bread sticks. When I paid with my debit card, the guy behind the counter started sing the song "Brandy" by Looking Glass to me (which is fairly rare for someone to know off the top of their head, let alone to have it sung to me!). lol
