Photos of real places (Storyteller Blog Tour)

As part of the blog tour for her new book, The Storyteller, Antonia Michaelis has stopped by to share her photos of real places post...

Anna's street.

Fish Market (Anna meets Abel and Micha here playing on the frozen pond.  On that day Abel seems out of danger).

Greifswald town, market.


Ice, ice, ice (this is the place in front of the cafe, where Anna plays the flute to awaken the fairy tale - sea lion after he was wounded).

It is the third floor to the right.

Leaving Home for the night shift (this is where Abel and Micha live)


Micha and Abel on the ice (on the left the cafe Utkiek)

Place of broken tears (this is the boat hall)


Spring is just behind the windows (the cafe Atkiek where Anna and Abel meet, seen from the sea)

The cocktailbar of social casts (the MITTENDRINN where Bertil and Abel nearly get into a fight)


The end of the pier (on the opposite side of the bay is Ludwigsburg where Anna is fighting against the snow storm)


Tower blocks at the edge of town (this is where Abel and Micha live)


Walking over the ice.

Where Abel lives.


Where fairy tales come from (the mouth of the frozen river Ryck, inspiration for Abel to invent his fairy tale ship)


Where fairy tales come from 2

Thanks Antonia!

From Goodreads:   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?

Award-winning author Antonia Michaelis moves in a bold new direction with her latest novel: a dark, haunting, contemporary story that is part mystery, part romance, and part melodrama.

The Storyteller is available to buy now.

The next stop on the tour is over at District YA tomorrow.
