Heather Lyons’ THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY – Blog Tour!

We are  thrilled to bring you the Blog Tour for Heather Lyons’ THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY!! THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY is an Adult Romantic Fairy Tale, full of adventure and fantasy. This is Alice as you have never seen her before…

Amazon |  Kobo | iTunes 

From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?

“You’re sloppy, you’re loud, and you talk too much.” 
Sometimes, I wondered why I willingly came back time and time again for such abuse. 
The Caterpillar dragged his hookah over to the pillows we were lounging on. The sun was hot that day, the air heavy and acrid with each smoke ring he blew. I was never offered a puff on these visits—not that I ever would have taken one, but sometimes I wondered what it would take for just such a gesture. 
“What’s wrong with talking?” 
His beady eyes narrowed as he grunted. I had to wait nearly a full minute before he answered. “It’s hard to hear others when your own words overwhelm your thoughts.” 
“How am I to get answers to my questions, if I do not ask?” 
A perfect smoke-shaped jabberwocky floated away from us, its jaws snapping. “The most truthful answers are found through observation. Words allow lies.” One of his little silk slippers dangled from a foot as he huffed in irritation. “For example, I can say that I am the White King.” 
I’d laughed. “Don’t be silly. You don’t look a thing like him. For one, you’re a caterpillar. Secondly, you’re much older than he is. And thirdly—” 
More forcefully, “I am the White King, Alice.” 
I was annoyed, but more so weary of the constant riddles. “Of course you aren’t.” 
He blew a perfect representation of the White King’s face. “I’ve said I am, so I must be.” 
“Fine. Two can play this game. I’m the Caterpillar,” I announced. 
“You are a child,” was his retort, “who will never achieve her goals if she doesn’t grow up.” 
“I’m eighteen!” 
He merely puffed away on his hookah. 
“Even in Wonderland, those who are eighteen are adults.” 
He continued to smoke in silence; his beady eyes, once narrowed, glazed over before eventually closing. 
“I don’t have to listen to you, you know.” 
He blew a smoke Alice in a little dress, running in circles. 
     But I continued to sit with him for the rest of the afternoon, even though no more words were said by either of us. I was continuously a failure in his eyes, the worst of his pupils who just couldn’t seem to learn her lessons.
