Constance Verity saves the world, alot. In fact, she’s been saving it since she was seven and her adventures are continuing in A. Lee Martinez’s Constance Verity trilogy, which is soon to be a major motion picture starring actress/comedian Awkwafina (Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings). To celebrate the publication of book one (The Last Adventures of Constance Verity) and two (Constance Verity Saves the World) for the first time in the UK , we’re giving away THREE bundles of both books!
The Last Adventures of Constance Verity starts the adventures, which all began at Constance Verity’s seventh birthday party, when she defeated a giant snake – but really, it was the fault of the magic wish granted to her at her birth. She’s now a master of exotic martial arts and a keen detective, and she possesses a collection of strange artefacts, mostly kept in unlabelled boxes in her apartment.
But Constance has spent the past twenty-seven years saving the world, and frankly, she’s sick of it. She wants an office job and a normal boyfriend – one who isn’t going to get killed by who knows what – and she’s figured out the way to get them. She’s going to kill her fairy godmother. After all, it was Grandmother Willow who granted the wish and reset her life. The problem is, saving the world is Constance’s destiny. She’s really good at it, and there are forces at work to make sure she stays in the job. Then again, it’s also her destiny to have a glorious death.
In Constance Verity Saves the World, Constance is still saving the universe, one crisis at a time, but the rules have changed.
She’s managed to build a quiet life between feats of improbable heroism, until the line between adventure and ordinary begins to blur and Connie discovers that preventing her two very different worlds from colliding might be beyond even her. It’s hard enough to maintain a relationship without having to find time to save the world, but when her (sort of) ex-boyfriend, the son of one of her top ten arch-enemies, comes to her for help, the timing couldn’t be worse.
But when malicious superbrains and sinister ocean gods join an entirely unreasonable number of assassins, Connie might finally be in over her head – and the curse of steadily worsening bad luck isn’t helping much. With her history of saving the world, over and over, it should be just another day in Connie’s life – shouldn’t it?
