Contest Round 20: Jocelynn Drake

Several months ago, I got this brilliant idea to contact a number of authors that I am friends with and see if they would be willing to give away a couple of signed books on my blog. Twenty weeks later, I find that I've given away more than two dozen books and introduced you to a number of new authors that you absolutely MUST start reading. I am very pleased with the enthusiasm and the interest that has been shown on the blog during the past few months, and I'm more than a little saddened to see it all end, but this will be the last "official" week of the Contest Extravaganza.


And since this is my blog and my contest, I've decided to end with a set of my books. It seems only natural, right? I thought you would agree with me. So here's the deal. I'm not giving away just one book or two. I'm giving away 4 signed books along with two mugs and a set of magnets. This ultimate prize pack is a perfect holiday gift for the urban fantasy reader in your family. Or it's just the perfect prize pack to give yourself, because you know you've earned it!

I am giving away, Nightwalker -- the First Dark Days Novel. Here is a quick description:

"For centuries Mira has been a nightwalker—an unstoppable enforcer for a mysterious organization that manipulates earth-shaking events from the darkest shadows. But elemental mastery over fire sets her apart from others of her night-prowling breed . . . and may be all that prevents her doom.

The foe she now faces is human: the vampire hunter called Danaus, who has already destroyed so many undead. For Mira, the time has come to hunt . . . or be hunted."

I am also giving away Dayhunter -- the Second Dark Days Novel. Here is a quick description:

"A new day dawns blood red


A master of fire, Mira is the last hope for the world. For centuries she has secretly enforced the history-altering edicts of the Triad. Now she and her unlikely ally—the human vampire hunter, Danaus—have come to Venice, home of the nightwalker rulers. But there is no safety in the ancient city, for the threat of conflict is in the wind . . . with unholy alliances and earth-shattering betrayals taking hideous form in the shadows.

Banished for eons beyond the world's boundaries, the malevolent naturi prepare to feed once again upon a vulnerable earth—and treachery is opening wide the portal that will enable their dread re-emergence. The great battle that has always been Mira's destiny is looming, and she must remain powerful in the face of a shocking revelation: that Danaus, the only creature she dares to trust, is something more than the man he claims to be . . ."


I am also giving a

way a copy of Dawnbreaker -- the Third Dark Days Novel. Here is a quick description:

"The dawn brings new terror for the creatures of the night . . .


Those of her race fear Mira for the lethal fire she bends to her will—a power unique among nightwalkers, both a gift . . . and a curse.


The naturi despise Mira for what she is—as they prepare the final sacrifice that will destroy the barriers between the worlds. And once the naturi are unchained, blood, chaos, and horror will reign supreme on Earth.

Mira can trust only Danaus, the more-than-mortal vampire slayer, though he is sworn to destroy her kind. And now, as the day approaches when titanic forces will duel under cover of darkness, destiny draws them toward an apocalyptic confrontation at Machu Picchu. But all

is not lost, for a wild card has been dealt to them: a rogue enemy princess who can change the balance of power and turn the dread tide."


And finally, I am giving away a copy of the Unbound anthology, which has in it my novella, "The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten." Here is a quick description:

"Not all hunters are bound by human laws . . .


Revisiting the paranormal realms they've made famous in their wildly popular fiction, New Y

ork Times bestselling authors Kim Harrison, Jeaniene Frost, Vicki Pettersson, and Jocelynn Drake—plus New York Times bestselling YA author Melissa Marr with her first adult supernatural thriller—unleash their full arsenal of dark talents, plunging us into the shadows where the supernatural stalk the unsuspecting . . . and every soul is a target.


Get ready for the ride of your life—because the wildest magic has just been unleashed . . . and evil is about to have its day."


To add to the fun, I have dug up a pair of Nightwalker and Dayhunter mugs, as well as magnets that have Nightwalker, Dayhunter, and Dawnbreaker covers on them.


So, are you excited now? I thought so! Here are some quick contest rules:
