Giveaway: ROC/ACE Samplers

Sampler - front Sampler - back

So… I have four copies of the above sampler to giveaway, courtesy of Ilona Andrews. It has some AWESOME excerpts from:

  • Skinwalker by Faith Hunter
    • First in a new urban fantasy series from Faith Hunter (author of Bloodring). From the author’s website: “Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind—a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living.”
    • Available July 7th
  • Skin Deep by Mark Del Franco
    • Mark Del Franco is the author of the Connor Grey series (starts with Unshapely Things – my review LJ | vox). Skin Deep is the first of a series set in the same world that focuses on Guild agent Laura Blackstone:
      “Being an undercover agent has its occupational hazards, but Laura makes it look easy. She uses her magical abilities to create disguises that are skin deep–glamours, or personas, that must never be compromised.”
    • Available July 28th
  • Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs
    • This is the second of the Mercy Thompson series spin off that features werewolf couple Anna and Charles. Patricia Briggs’ website says: “It’s set on a slightly earlier time-table than the Mercy books. In this book Bran is going to make the werewolves publicly known. Unfortunately, there are some fairly persuasive beings who aren’t real keen on that idea.” My review of Alpha and Omega from On the ProwlLJ | vox. And Cry WolfLJvox.
    • Available August 25th
  • Trick of the Light by Rob Thurman
    • A new series by the author of the Cal Leandros series. This one features Trixa Iktomi, a Las Vegas bar owner and information dealer who occasionally has to tangle with demons.
    • Available September 1st
  • On the Edge by Ilona Andrews
    • New series by the author of Magic Bites, Magic Burns (LJ | vox )and Magic Strikes (LJ | vox). From the author’s website: “Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny).”
    • FYI – I was very gleeful reading this excerpt. CANNOT WAIT. Yes, I am a fan.
    • Available September 29th
  • Elegy Beach by Steven R. Boyett
    • This is the sequel to Ariel. Which I read last year and it still haunts me (I really should review it): it all starts with our world when technology suddenly stops, planes fall out of the sky, people are stranded, families are torn apart by sheer distance and no way of communication. Then things from stories; like unicorns and magic just happen. Elegy Beach is set 30 years after Ariel. I recommend this author for suck-you-in reads.
    • Author website
    • Ariel is being reissued August 25th (good, it was hard-to-find), Elegy Beach will be available November 3rd
  • Tainted by Julie Kenner
    • New urban fantasy series by the author of the Demon Hunting Soccor Mom series. Features Lily Carlyle, who, in an act of vengeance, manages to get herself killed, and wakes up in a new body with the chance for redemption as an assassin for the Light.
    • Available October 27th
And it’s autographed by Ilona Andrews (yep, by both Gordon and Ilona).
