Deadly Destinations: Alyssa Day’s Bordertown

**Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour with Rachel Vincent & enter for a chance to win signed copies of  the Soul Screamers omnibus volumes 1-3**

Deadly Destinations learns all about Bordertown featured in the paranormal romance series League of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day. This series began with The Cursed and continues with a novella in the Enthralled anthology which also features authors Lora Leigh, Meljean Brook and Lucy Monroe. Enthralled was released on July 2, 2013 from Berkley/Penguin. Want to know our thoughts on the first novel in the League of the Black Swan series? Read our review for The Cursed here.

Enter for a chance to win one of three copies of The Cursed! This giveaway is provided by Alyssa Day!

_________________________________________________________________________________

Top 5 ways you know you’ve ventured into Bordertown…

1. A duck the size of a city bus is headed toward you—and she looks ANGRY.

2. The hottest guy you’ve ever seen just blew up your car.  With fireballs.  That shot out of his hands..

3. Your fire-roasted salsa at lunch was roasted by an actual demon.

4. The bouncer at your favorite bar is an ogre who could eat Shrek for breakfast but prefers jelly beans (no black ones, please).

5. And – – that bike messenger who just sped by with a fox in her bike basket?  She’s far, FAR more than she seems.

Thanks to Deadly Destinations for the AWESOME review of THE CURSED!! And to Angela for her amazeballs patience and lovely, kind, graciousness!  In honor of both, I’m giving away a copy of THE CURSED to each of 3 winners selected from commenters who answer this question:

If you made your way to Bordertown, a dimensional fold in Manhattan between the Fae, demon, and human realms, and you found yourself riding an elevator with a supernatural creature, who would it be and what would you do?

About Alyssa:

Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. She is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy novels. She was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and spent her childhood moving all around the world with her family and her dad, who was in the U.S. Air Force, living in such varied and wonderful places as Colorado, the Philippines, Alaska, Turkey, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and probably a few other places she has forgotten. After graduating from The Ohio State University (go Buckeyes!) with a degree in sociology, she worked in the real world for a while but then went to law school, graduating summa cum laude from Capital Law School in Columbus, Ohio. She practiced law as a trial lawyer in three different states before deciding that she had more fun with the voices in her head than the ones in courtrooms. After marrying Navy Guy, she started on another round of adventures, moving from Ohio to Florida to Seattle to Florida to Virginia to Florida to Japan (so far!).

A voracious reader, Alyssa has a collection of research books on mythology and history that nearly makes the moving guys cry when they come to pack up her house each time the Navy decides to send her family on a new adventure. When not writing or reading or driving white-knuckled on the left side of the road in Japan, she can be found watching reality TV, going to the movies (she adores really, really bad Sci-Fi movies), travelling, and trying new restaurants. She puts pictures of her adventures up on Facebook and Twitter, and loves to chat with readers, so be sure to join in the conversation!

You can visit Alyssa around the web here: Website | BlogTwitter | Facebook

    I would love a shifter – preferably cat, or something a little less common than wolf. It would be hard not to ask it to change so I could pet it.

    The way my luck has gone lately I am pretty certain I would find myself in the elevator with the giant duck and oh lordy would I be trying not to think a la orange sauce, but I might just quack under the pressure! Thank you for making me smile and for the treat of a giveaway opportunity :)

    First, I hope it is one that does not mean me any harm. Second, since they mean me no harm… they can be a hottie. It would be cool if they were any of those paranormal creatures. I’d have so many questions. :D

    It would might be a shifter, maybe a rugged werewolf. I’d be scared, so I’d probably pretend that I don’t know who he is. As if he couldn’t smell my fear:)

    A fae. But of course I will act extra carefully because they can enchant and charm me. To prevent that, I will bring some iron with me, then chat with them. Yes, just talk, maybe they will take me to NeverNever or someplace like that

    If I was riding an elevator and my co-riders were supernatural. I’d do the same thing I’d do with anyone else. Smile, say good morning, afternoon, or evening and then ignore them unless they requested conversation with me.
