Cover Reveal & Contest Too: When the Stars Threw Down Their Spears


Isn't it great? It's the third and final book in the Goblin Wars series.
It will hit the shelves February 2013. Don't quite remember the series?

Book one, Tyger Tyger, was one of my favorite reads of 2010.

What I said: "Run, don't walk, to Tyger Tyger. Yes it is THAT good! It has mythology, folklore, an ancient curse, attraction, and a fairytalesque quest. I could not put it down. It swiftly captured me and held me hostage. My only regret was that it had to end."
Now for the very best part of my news, the authoress Kersten Hamilton is providing one of my lucky readers with a signed copy of the first two books in the series (Tyger Tyger and In the Forests of the Night) AND a pre-order of book three. Fantastic right? All you have to do is leave a comment with your email address below. A winner will be selected and announced September 26, 2012. You must be a resident of the U.S. to enter.

  3. Oooh! Loving that 3rd cover! Curious what the castle holds...is it a friend or a foe? The lightning doesn't bode well one way or the other...*-* As for book 1, I TOTALLY remember your review on it...one of the reasons it landed on my wish list though alas, that is where it still resides. On that note, count me in on the contest! I could definitely due with a magical read about now...
    Thanks for the chance!

  21. I loved Tyger when it came out, but my son was a bit young ... and the possibility of having all three for our family now is making me salivate. The cover is gorgeous, Kersten. Congratulations!
