Free Book Giveaway! Win a Hardcover of Ark Storm by Linda Davies

TOR Books is giving two lucky readers of my blog a chance to win a copy of Ark Storm by Linda Davies.

(Limited to readers who live in the U.S. and Canada)

This sounds like a great book. TOR will be sending me an ARC, so I will get to read Ark Storm too, but you two lucky winners will get the Hardcover version. Here is the info from Amazon.

Ark StormThe Ark Storm is coming—a catastrophic weather event that will unleash massive floods and wreak more damage on California than the feared “Big One.” One man wants to profit from it. Another wants to harness it to wage jihad on American soil. One woman stands in their way: Dr. Gwen Boudain, a brave and brilliant meteorologist.

When Boudain notices that her climate readings are off the charts, she turns to Gabriel Messenger for research funding. Messenger’s company is working on a program that ionizes water molecules to bring rain on command. Meanwhile, Wall Street suits notice that someone is placing six-month bets on the prospect of an utter apocalypse and begin to investigate. Standing in the shadows is journalist Dan Jacobsen, a former Navy SEAL. War hardened, cynical, and handsome, Jacobsen is a man with his own hidden agenda.

Linda Davies’s Ark Storm brings together the worlds of finance, scientific innovation, and terrorism in a fast-paced thrill ride that will leave readers gasping.

Welcome to my first book giveaway! DemonWars: First Heroes by R. A. Salvatore

DemonWars: First Heroes by R. A. Salvatore

DemonWars: First Heroes by R. A. Salvatore

Tor Books is releasing a new special edition of the first two titles in R. A. Salvatore’s Saga of the First King series: DemonWars: First Heroes (A Tor Paperback; $11.99; On-sale: April 2, 2014). Well known for his popular Forgotten Realms character Drizzt the Drow Elf, Salvatore has created his own realm in the DemonWars Saga, expanded by the Saga of the First Kings.

In The Highwayman, Salvatore takes his readers back to his signature world of Corona many years before the DemonWars, introducing a fascinating new hero. The roads are unsafe to travel; goblins and bloodthirsty Powries search out human prey. Two religions struggle fiercely for control. Only the Highwayman travels freely, his sword casting aside both Powries and soldiers. The people need a savior, but is the Highwayman on a mission of mercy…or vengeance?

In The Ancient, Bransen Garibond is tricked into journeying across the Gulf of Corona to the wild lands of Vanguard, where he is pressed into service in a desperate war. If Branson fails, all who live on the lake will perish, and all of northern Honce will fall under the shadow of the merciless and vengeful Samhaists.

Publishers Weekly calls The Highwayman a “swift-moving tale of sword and sorcery” and declares, “Fans of Salvatore’s unadorned approach and broad caricatures of archetypal figures should be pleased with this carnival of treachery and medieval feudalism.” A can’t miss collection for Salvatore fans, this special omnibus reprint is also the perfect introduction to the entertaining realms of the DemonWars.
