I Spill My Coffee, You Get a Giveaway!

NOTE: Giveaway ENDS TODAY 12/8/11 at Midnight EST. So get your entries in! Winner will be notified tomorrow and posted as soon as they confirm.

As I was writing up my review of Gray Wolf Throne I spilled my coffee. A tragedy, I’m sure you agree. It got all over everything on my desk with the thankful exception of my laptop. It did however stain the tops of a few pages of  The Gray Wolf Throne.

This unspeakable horror has prompted me to do something that I had actually thought about doing when I realized that I’m in love with these books and want to keep them forever. And that thing is to invest in hard backs of all three of the books that are out so far (the fourth and final book is out in the fall of 2012…so far away!).

Which means you, my dear readers, will have a chance to win my paperback (and slightly coffee stained hardback) copies of The Demon King, The Exiled Queen, and The Gray Wolf Throne.

From Goodreads:

This novel marks the first giant step in a momentous fantasy journey orchestrated by Cinda Williams Chima, the author of the popular Warrior Heir series. Its two chief protagonists are ex-thief Han Alister, an impoverished commoner, and Raisa ana’Marianna, the headstrong Princess Heir of the Fells. The Demon King brings them together, creating part of a volatile mix of action, magic, and danger. Empathetic characters; wizardly attacks.

The Deal: When semi-reformed thief Han has a run-in with three arrogant young wizards, that ends with him stealing a magical artifact from one of them, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that will make him a key player in the tense and multi-layered politics of his once great and now struggling kingdom. Mix in a smart, strong-willed princess who is just beginning to realize that she’s already tangled up in lies and intrigue, warriors, wizards, thieves, and a whole world of players and pawns all with their own agendas and you’ve got The Demon King.
