Enter to win an advanced reader's galley of QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS

  • Posted by admin on Mar 21 2014

It’s officially spring time, so let’s shake off our winter blues with an amazing giveaway. Five lucky winners will get an advanced reader’s copy of QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS by C. Robert Cargill, the sequel to the acclaimed DREAMS AND SHADOWS! The book comes out on May 13.

Six months have passed since the events in DREAMS AND SHADOWS, when the wizard Colby lost his best friend to an army of fairies from the Limestone Kingdom, a realm of mystery and darkness beyond our own. But in vanquishing these creatures and banning them from Austin, Colby sacrificed the anonymity that protected him. Now, word of his deeds has spread, and powerful enemies from the past—including one Colby considered a friend—have resurfaced to exact their revenge. As darkness gathers around the city, Colby sifts through his memories desperate to find answers that might save him. With time running out, and few of his old allies and enemies willing to help, he is forced to turn for aid to forces even darker than those he once battled.

Enter to win by leaving a comment below, or RT us on Twitter: @HarperVoyagerUS! The giveaway ends today at 7 p.m. ET. Good luck! The winners will be selected at random and contacted directly.

DREAMS AND SHADOWS, by C. Robert Cargill.

DEAD SETby Richard Kadrey. Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey, of the Sandman Slim series, creates a wonderful, stand-alone dark fantasy. After her father’s funeral, Zoe moved to the big city with her mother to start over. But change always brings trials, and life in the city is not so easy. Money is tight, and Zoe’s only escape, as has always been the case, is in her dreams—a world apart from her troubled real life where she can spend time with her closest companion: her lost brother, Valentine. But something or someone has entered their dreamworld uninvited. And a chance encounter at a used record store, where the vinyl holds not music but lost souls, has opened up a portal to the world of the restless dead.

The penultimate installment of a fantastic paranormal fantasy series, The Undead Pool is an absolute must read. I’ve talked with a few reviewers who’ve read it, and they’ve confirmed that it’s filled with jaw-dropping plot twists.” You can get your copy on pre-order today!

Tepper, the third book in the series that began with The Plague of Angels and The Waters Rising. Abasio and Xulai and their children travel from village to village scattered across the sparsely populated land of Tingawa.

ABYSS DEEP, book 2 in the Star Corpsman series by New York Times bestselling author Ian Douglas, is out today.  As Bravo Company defuses a hostage crisis on an orbiting mining station, Navy Corpsman Elliot “Doc” Carlyle not only saves the lives of a wounded Marine and two extraterrestrial friendlies—he averts a terrorist strike intended to kill billions. His reward? Deployment on a recon mission into the darkest depths known to man.

Abyss Deep is a foreboding ocean planet torn by extremes: boiling storm world on one side, unbroken glacier on the other. Humans established a research colony there to study the planet’s giant sea serpents—but the colony has gone ominously silent. When Carlyle’s team arrives, they discover a vessel belonging to a warlike alien species hovering above the atmosphere. But below the ice lurks a mystery so chilling it will make even Elliot Carlyle’s blood run cold.

EVER AFTER, book 11 of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, is out in mass market paperback! And this edition contains an original short story, TROUBLE ON THE RESERVE, at the end of the book!

The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and it’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to stop it before the fragile balance between Inderlanders and humans falls apart.

Of course, there’s also the small fact that Rachel caused the ley line to rip in the first place. And the most powerful demon in the ever-after, the soul-eater Ku’Sox Sha-Ku’ru, has kidnapped her friend and her goddaughter as leverage in his quest for vengeance. If Rachel doesn’t give herself up for execution, they will die. Rachel must team up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack— a partnership fraught with perils of the heart and soul— to rescue those she loves.

Something is missing from Ewan and Colby’s lives. Residing in the corners of their memories is their time in Limestone Kingdom, a realm filled with magic and mystery, a world where only some may travel among the menagerie of mystical souls and sinister demons.
