Giveaway: Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer

Arcadia Awakens is the first book in the Arkadien trilogy, which is already available.  Want to win a copy of the book?  See contest details below.

About Kai:

Kai Meyer wrote his first novel in his early 20s, and it was published when he was just 24 years old. He has been a full-time novelist since 1995. To date, Kai has written 50 books – some for adults, some for teenagers.

There are over 1.5 million Kai Meyer books in print in Germany, and he is quickly gaining popularity in other countries as well: THE WATER MIRROR went into its third US printing before it was even delivered to bookstores, and his young adult dark fantasy series SIEBEN SIEGEL is a substantial hit in Japan. The British edition of THE FLOWING QUEEN / THE WATER MIRROR won the 2007 Marsh Award for Best Children´s Book in Translation.

His novels have been translated into 30 languages including English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Chinese.

Kai Meyer was born in 1969 in northern Germany. He began college at the University of Bochum, Germany, where he studied film, theatre, and philosophy. After a year, he dropped out to work for a newspaper as a trainee journalist, followed by two years as a staff journalist.

In 2007 his historical novel DAS GELÜBDE (The Vow) was turned into a movie by celebrated German director Dominik Graf. Other books are optioned.

Kai has also written screenplays, two of which have been made into TV movies. Several of his novels have been turned into comics and award-winning full cast audio dramas, and he is one of the creators of the fantasy role-playing game ENGEL (US edition by White Wolf).

His latest book in English is ARCADIA AWAKENS, first in a new trilogy (published by Harper Collins / Templar)

One winner will receive a copy of the Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer

 Available on February 14, 2012 from Harper Collins/Blazer & Bray

About the Book:

To New Yorker Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic, and wholly unknown. But when tragedy strikes, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where her sister and aunt have built their lives and where centuries of family secrets await her. Once there, Rosa wastes no time falling head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both intrigue and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.

Ancient myths brought to life in the Sicilian countryside, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a long history of familial bloodlust prove to Rosa that she can’t trust anyone—not even her own family. Torn between loyalty to her aunt and love for her family’s mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love . . . or run as far and as fast as she can.

    I want to read this book because the cover looks awesome and scary. Also I’ve never read a book that takes place in Sicily and I think it be a great place to visit. ALso the premise of the book sounds fascinating and different, and I’m always looking for something new and different to read. Thanks for the give away :)

    I’d like to read this because it sounds good. I like the idea of her walking into things w/no knowledge and figuring it out. It will also be a good Romeo/Juliet style love story.

    It sounds like it has a lot of action and suspense, which I always enjoy. I like to be on the edge of my seat when I’m reading a book, and I think Arcadia Awakens will fit the bill.
