Blog Tour & Giveaway | Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1) by Aimée Carter

Pawn_Button_1

Welcome to my stop on the PAWN Blog Tour!

Here’s a quick interview I had with Aimée.

Aimée I’d love to hear more about the advanced technology you developed for PAWN. Did you do some research? Did you maybe talk to some scientists, or did you just let your imagination flow?

Part of the fascination of Kitty’s society for me was the fact that they suffered economic collapse seventy-odd years earlier – and because of that, they’ve been focused on rebuilding instead of advancing technology that wasn’t necessary to sustaining life. There isn’t a whole lot of advanced technology in the series that doesn’t have root in something we have today, and that’s really because of what the society as a whole has gone through. In many ways, they’re still recovering.

Especially the motorized walkways and the “cloning” was very fascinating. How did you come up with these specific ideas?

The motorized walkways exist today in various places – for instance, airports – and the next logical step in my mind was having them in parts of cities that are populated by the rich. As far as Kitty being Masked goes, a lot of the inspiration from that comes from people even today who get thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery to try to look like famous people. Recently I read a story in the news about a man who spent a huge sum of money to look like Justin Bieber – and it’s following that same sort of possibility, but the scientists in Kitty’s world have had decades more time to perfect it.

What kind of technology that we will find in PAWN would you like to have for yourself?

The necklace Greyson gives Kitty. I don’t want to spoil too much, but having that kind of technology hanging around your neck would be amazing.

I agree! That necklace was pretty awesome!

About PAWN

YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.
