The Storyteller Blog Tour: Trailer!

I was supposed to post this over 2 weeks ago, but I've had a lot of personal stuff going on and haven't been able to until now. Apologies for the lateness, but I can finally show you guys the trailer for The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis. There were many other posts on this blog tour, which has now finished, and you can find details of those on the banner at the bottom of this page.

Here's a summary of The Storyteller from Amazon:

Anna and Abel couldn't be more different. They are both seventeen and in their last year of school, but while Anna lives in a nice old town house and comes from a well-to-do family, Abel, the school drug dealer, lives in a big, prisonlike tower block at the edge of town. Anna is afraid of him until she realizes that he is caring for his six-year-old sister on his own. Fascinated, Anna follows the two and listens as Abel tells little Micha the story of a tiny queen assailed by dark forces. It's a beautiful fairy tale that Anna comes to see has a basis in reality. Abel is in real danger of losing Micha to their abusive father and to his own inability to make ends meet. Anna gradually falls in love with Abel, but when his "enemies" begin to turn up dead, she fears she has fallen for a murderer. Has she?


So, without further ado, here is the rather excellent trailer!
