Fantastic Fables Giveaway: Hellbent by Cherie Priest

**Visit Tynga’s Reviews today for her Snow White Fantastic Fable from Carolyn Jewel & a chance to win MY DANGEROUS PLEASURE**

Even though we have passed the halfway point of the Fantastic Fables event, Tynga and I still have a few surprises for you. I know so many of you have read and loved books by Cherie Priest. Cherie introduced us to her heroine, Raylene Pendle (AKA Cheshire Red), a vampire and world-renowned thief, in BLOODSHOT (already available). Cherie’s upcoming release is HELLBENT, which is the second book in her Cheshire Red Reports urban fantasy series. Unfortunately, Cherie’s busy writing schedule kept her from participating in our event. Thanks to the fabulous team at Random House/Spectra, three of you who comment on this post will win a copy of the second book!  See details below


About Cherie:

I was born in Tampa, Florida, down the street from the stadium in 1975 — the same year that gave us Saturday Night Live and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, so I consider myself in good company. I have a B.A. in English from Southern Adventist University, here noted because it embarrasses them to share a paragraph with Tim Curry in drag; and I have an M.A. in Rhetoric (composition/critical theory) from the University of Tennessee, which couldn’t care less.

I write novels. To date, I’ve had ten of them published, and another four are in the queue. My most recent book is Bloodshot. My best-known books are probably Dreadnought and Boneshaker (2009) – which was nominated for a Nebula Award and a Hugo Award.Boneshaker also won the PNBA Award, as well as the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel, so yes, my resume is starting to look a little lop-sided. (Not that I’m complaining.)

In the spring of 2011 I began working for a video game company, but my project there hasn’t been announced yet – so I don’t get to blab about it. (Alas!) Minus that one super-secret thing, you can find a mostly proper bibliography over here.

In March of 2006 I married my long-time significant other, Aric; and together with our fat black cat named Spain (as in, “I claim this land for–”), we moved to Seattle shortly after the wedding. Seattle is very different from the southeast. I’m still getting accustomed to it.

Three winners will each receive a copy of Hellbent by Cherie Priest

Available on August 30, 2011 from Random House/Spectra

About the Book:

Vampire thief Raylene Pendle doesn’t need more complications in her life. Her Seattle home is already overrun by a band of misfits, including Ian Stott, a blind vampire, and Adrian deJesus, an ex-Navy SEAL/drag queen. But Raylene still can’t resist an old pal’s request: seek out and steal a bizarre set of artifacts. Also on the hunt is a brilliant but certifiably crazy sorceress determined to stomp anyone who gets in her way. But Raylene’s biggest problem is that the death of Ian’s vaunted patriarch appears to have made him the next target of some blood-sucking sociopaths.  Now Raylene must snatch up the potent relics, solve a murder, and keep Ian safe—all while fending off a psychotic sorceress. But at least she won’t be alone. A girl could do a lot worse for a partner than an ass-kicking drag queen—right?

    I had to laugh at the description of Raylene’s misfits. Thanks for making me smile.
