Blog Tour, Feature, & Giveaway: Styled by The Fallen Isles (As She Ascends)

We are huge Jodi Meadows fans here at BookCrushin and so excited that As She Ascends is only a few weeks away from release. With even more dragons and a kickass crew of dragon-savers, As She Ascends in not just a sequel but a book that takes the world of The Fallen Isles to the next level. I especially loved how Jodi incorporated exercise into Mira’s transformation. One day you’re a princess who likely did not train for battle and the next you have super strength? Pfft. Jodi gave Mira the opportunity to develop her strength in many ways – and I’m here with a gym styling to match the beautiful cover!

MIRA, THE HOPEBEARERMira Minkoba is on the run with her friends after a fiery escape from the Pit, where she’d been imprisoned for defending the dragons she loves. And she wants answers. Where have all the dragons been taken? Why are powerful noorestones being shipped to the mainland? And did the treaty she’s been defending her whole life truly sell out the Fallen Isles to their enemies?

MIRA, THE DRAGONHEARTEDAs her connection to the dragons—and their power—grows stronger, so does Mira’s fear that she might lose control and hurt someone she loves. But the only way to find the truth is to go home again, to Damina, to face the people who betrayed her and the parents she’s not sure she can trust.

Home, where she must rise above her fears. Or be consumed.

The second page-turning novel in Jodi Meadows’ Fallen Isles trilogy scorches with mysterious magic and riveting romance as one girl kindles a spark into a flame.


Styled by The Fallen Isles

Last year, I gave Before She Ignites the fancy dress treatment, which inspired me to revisit the concept for As She Ascends!

For me, good exercise attire has the following attributes:

  • Functional for the sport (Doing a Spartan in shorts is a no go & I need my special running shoes)
  • Squat-proof (aka does not show my undies)
  • Well-fitted (nothing worse than pulling something up or down while focusing)
  • Cute

Mira learns quickly that dresses are impractical for adventure and exercise so I thought I would put together an outfit just for her.

Mira spends parts of of As She Ascends running so I gave her a running focused outfit, with some extra shoes for lifting (if she wants). Since she is often wearing dresses, I gave her a longer skort to pair with an excellent sports bra. The matching visor will keep the sun and sweat out of her eyes and those anti-fog sunglasses will ensure she can keep an eye out on her trail run. A nice pair of trail runners to match and some Chuck Taylors for lifting and she’s good to go.

And if you’re curious how I run and lift, here’s a little peek.



Jodi Meadows wants to be a ferret when she grows up and she has no self-control when it comes to yarn, ink, or outer space. Still, she manages to write books. She is the author of the Incarnate Trilogy, The Orphan Queen duology, and The Fallen Isles trilogy (harpercollins/katherine tegen), and a coauthor of My Lady Jane (Harperteen).
