Fantastic Fables Giveaway: Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff

**Visit Tynga’s Reviews today for her 12 Dancing Princesses Fantastic Fable from Heather Hildenbrand & a chance to win DIRTY BLOOD and a special giveaway of Hunt the Moon from Karen Chance**

Today’s special giveaway is ISLE OF NIGHT from Veronica WolffISLE OF NIGHT (available on September 6th) is the first book in Veronica’s The Watcher’s series.  The second book in the series is VAMPIRE’S KISS (available March 6, 2012).  Unfortunately, due to Veronica’s busy writing schedule,  she wasn’t able to participate in our event.  Want to slip into this dangerously seductive and mysterious world?  Well, you’re in luck.  Thanks to Veronica and the awesome people at Penguin/NAL, two of you who comment on this post will win a copy of the book!  See details below

____________________________________________________________________________________________

About Veronica:

Once upon a time there was a girl. She liked horses and Shaun Cassidy and Gunne Sax dresses, like many of the other girls her age. She had a big, loving family and, since their dad was in the Navy, they moved around. A lot. She was shy, though, and generally preferred a day spent in the company of her Trixie Belden books to running around with the other kids, whom she really didn’t know very well anyway.

She grew up and she still preferred the company of books, so she read, and she read some more, and she loved romantic stories, and stories about dragons and young men on quests, and stories by Jane and Daphne and Emily and Charlotte. But this girl realized that seeing all different kinds of places and all different kinds of people had become a part of who she was, and so she studied languages and art from faraway places. But she could be dramatic, and so she decided to study all of that while living in India. And then she studied in India again. For a long time. And she thought that, when she grew up some more, she would be a fancy professor and write linguistic papers and teach students about art and do other fancy-professor things.

But first she moved to California, where she had never been, because it seemed the place to move to start such a new and fabulous life. And she got a job to pay the rent. She discovered she still loved books that drew her in, and made her cry, and kept her awake till she had to scrunch her eyebrows to see the words clearly. And she realized too that she much preferred those books to the ones that mostly just taught her stuff and made her feel anxious that she wasn’t busy making grand statements in grand journals. And while she was figuring all this out, she needed money, and so she did what many of the other girls in California were doing and she got a job doing Internet stuff.

And she met her hero, and they married, and they got some pets and had some kids. But she still liked to go places in her mind as she stared out the window while doing things like washing bottles and burping babies, and so she started writing a story. And you can imagine the rest.

Now that she’s grown up, she likes to see movies and read books, cut flowers from her garden, spend time with friends and drink wine, and go snowboarding. Not all at the same time of course. And she still loves stories about dragons, but mostly she loves stories about love.

Two winners will each receive a copy of Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff

Available on September 6, 2011 from Penguin/NAL

About the Book:

IS LIFE OFFERING FEWER AND FEWER OPTIONS?THEN JOIN THE DEAD.

When Annelise left for college, it meant good riddance to her abusive father and stepmother—until a bureaucratic screw-up left her without a diploma, flat broke, and facing a future that seemed more elusive than ever. Then she met Ronan—tall, dark, and way too seductive for her own good. He promised Annelise a new life, if she had the courage to chance the unknown. One look at him and she certainly had the desire. Sure enough, accepting rides from strangers does yield surprises.

Whisked away to a mysterious island in the North Sea, Annelise is pitted against other female recruits in tests of skill, smarts, and strength. To win is to become a member of the Watchers, an elite and unique partnership—with vampires—that dispatches its teams on the most dangerous missions imaginable. It’s not exactly what Annelise had in mind for a new beginning but it’s livelier than the alternative. Because on the Isle of Night, to lose the challenge doesn’t just mean dishonor. It means death.

Let the games begin.

    Have loved Veronica’s historicals so super excited about reading paranormal by her. Aside from the the hunkie heroes in the Watchers, there is the coolness factor and kicking butt.
