Giveaway: Partials by Dan Wells

In honor of a new addition to the young adult dystopian reading craze, Dark Faerie Tales is giving away one copy of Partials by Dan Wells.  As always, details are listed below.  It’s that easy.  What are you waiting for?  Armageddon?  A virus to come and wipe out most of humanity so your chances to win will increase?

About Dan:

Dan Wells is the author of the John Cleaver series: I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, and I Don’t Want To Kill You. He has been nominated for both the Hugo and the Campbell Award and has won two Parsec Awards for his podcast Writing Excuses.

This giveaway is provided by Dark Faerie Tales

One winner will receive a copy of Partials by Dan Wells

 Available on February 28, 2012 from HarperCollins/Balzer & Blay

About the Book:

Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials–engineered organic beings identical to humans–has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.

When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.

Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar Galactica, Partials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question–one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival.

    3 elements of dystopia – strange government or lack thereof, people running around with guns, lack of organization

    3 elements of my ideal dystopian: a strong protagonist, a tight plot, great world-building. Right now, Divergent and Legend are the two that do this best imo :D

    Well, my thoughts are:
    1) A strong protagonist is a must! Really, I’m getting sooo sick and tired of the dependent-whining-weak-types that I’ve been seeing a lot more of in some books. Ugh!
    2) Outstanding world-building! Being able to understand that new world and to an extent being able to relate to it.
    3) A totally awesome-didn’t-see-that-one-coming plot!
    Thanks sooo much for the chance to win!
    I really love this cover. Stunning! :D

    World building is so important in a dystopia. Also, the believability of the event(s) that caused the dystopian world. And strong protags are a must!

    1) Well-drawn, complex characters
    2) Seriously dark. If at least one important character does not have something incredibly awful happen to them, it’s too sweet to be really dystopian.
    3) The slightest hope of survival, but it also needs to be evident that survival is no way guaranteed. See above.

    2) Rebellion against the status quo, trying to find a better life or making the world a better place
    3) Believable world-building where the setting is as much a character as the protagonists

    1. Believability/relatibility
    2. Amazing world-building with a suspenseful and fast-paced story
    3. Strong and interesting protagonist/characters; rebellion
    And I can’t forget the ROMANCE aspect that always draws me in when both characters are fighting to survive together.

    1) some kind of out of control rebellion situation going on that’s believable
    2) characters that have had horrible things happen to them in the past and give them a reason to be a part of the rebellion or doing the things they are doing
    3) a strong surrounding world with a glimmer of hope so it doesn’t seem like a completely lost cause from the beginning
