Dream Cast guest post + Spotlight on Hilary Thompson’s Justice Buried + Contest!

JB book blitzI’m a fan of dytopian novels… And red hair. 😉 Hilary Thompson’s debut novel Justice Buried is on my radar for both of those reasons. I’m intrigued by the main character Astrea’s refusal to be bound by fate. Oh! and the story has mythology and astrology elements too! Gimme. 🙂

Check out Hilary’s Dream Cast guest post and make sure you enter her giveaway. And, if Justice Buried get’s your attention add it your your TBR pile or better yet, to your shopping cart. 😀

Dream Cast

This casting isn’t necessarily about who I would pay to play in my movie, but rather who I picture in my head when I’m imagining a scene. Having a distinct face in mind helps me visualize how the characters would look
and sound as they react to the events and people around them.

Astrea (Ah-stray-uh)
Sophie Turner. Totally stealing this idea from blogger because use I had never found a real person to be Astrea. I had a mental image, though, and this actress is spot-on. The brilliant hair, the feisty side-glance, the angry, innocent beauty. The main difference is Astrea has grey eyes, like smoke.

Lexan (Lex-ehn)
Douglas Booth. Such a pretty, pretty boy. Even without the Boy George makeup. He should really have blondish hair for a perfect Lexan, but those eyes? Perfection.


Stian (Sty-ehn)
Jake Gyllenhaal, when he’s a little bit laughy and a lot bit scruffy. The main difference is Stian’s eyes are green, and I believe Jake’s are blue. Eh, no big deal.

Taye Diggs. He visited my high school dance class one year, and I haven’t exactly forgotten…he seems the perfect blend of serious eagle-eye, fun uncle, and secret-keeper extraordinaire. (No spoilers, but he keeps a big one!)


First Leader Keirna (Keer-nah)
Lucy Liu. She’s great at funny, but I think she could easily pull off what Kate Winslet does in Divergent – the switch-flip between caring leader and  psychotic visionary. (I’m remembering Kill Bill!) The haircut, jacket, and slightly imperious smile in this pic are how I usually visualize Keirna too.

The people need Justice, but she’s not listening.

One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three cities. Now the community of Asphodel is trapped underground, waiting for the prophesied maiden of Justice to return and save them from their Fates. Sixteen-year-old Astrea is supposed to be this savior – too bad for them she isn’t a believer. Trea fights against her false destiny: she rebels against her family and friends, then refuses her arranged marriage to the charming but deceitful Lexan. Learning her life is in danger, Trea is forced to trust Lexan – until she discovers a power she never knew she had, and one he already knew he did. As betrayal closes every door, Trea decides she must submit to her stars and accept her fate. Then a handsome stranger offers her an unexpected escape and the chance to create her own destiny.
