SPOOKTACULAR GIVEAWAY HOP - ON WITCHES, VAMPIRES & ALIKE


Is there anything most appropriate than this Spooktacular Hop to accompany us straight to the scariest and most exciting night of the year? Halloween is so close and we must get into the right mood to welcome it again.  Thanks to Kathy at I Am a Reader not a Writer for organizing such a huge spooky event and happy hop to all of you. 

Here are the prizes I've chosen for you, dearest readers of FLY HIGH! I'm giving away a kindle copy of  book 1 +  book 2  in the All Souls trilogy,  Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. I'm reading and greatly enjoying book 1 just these days and I highly recommend it!

About the books

1. In a sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches became the "it" book of early 2011, bringing Deborah Harkness into the spotlight and galvanizing fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and the descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont. Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting story of magic and suspense. And the story continues in Book Two, Shadow of Night.

2. J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has done with books one and two of her New York Times–bestselling All Souls trilogy. A Discovery of Witches introduced reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known asAshmole 782.
Harkness’s much-anticipated sequel, Shadow of Night, picks up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending. Diana and Matthew time-travel to Elizabethan London and are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night. As the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana searches for a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey.

I have to pick vampire, if only because I am curious what the world will be like a hundred years from now :)

RIN said...

I've always liked vampires, but f I actually had to be something, it'd probably be a Shadowhunter. Or maybe some sort of shapeshifter. I don't think I'd want to be a vampire.

Psychics. I'd like to read how authors paint their lives and their abilities. The possibilities are endless!

My favorite mythical creature or fairy tale animal is the Elf. I think I really grew to love them because of The Lord of the Rings and Eragon.

I'd rather be a witch. Spells are powerful! You can transform yourself with it, maybe even prolong your life if you want.

Cindi said...

Elves, Pixies, and Fairies are adorable!!! These would be my choice.

Sherry said...

I love werewolves/ wolf shifters. I wouldn't mind being one.

Toni Porter said...

Well, my favorite creatures to read about are probably vampires (non-sparkly ones only). However, were I to be a paranormal creature, I'd probably choose to be a faerie or an elf--and not the sickeningly sweet kind, either. The deadly and dangerous kind.
