Flash giveaway: THE LADY & HER MONSTERS

Calling all Frankenstein enthusiasts! We’re having a very special mid-week FLASH giveaway, and four lucky winners will get a copy of the truly macabre and historically fascinating THE LADY AND HER MONSTERS. Good luck!

The Lady and Her Monsters by Roseanne Motillo brings to life the fascinating times, startling science, and real-life horrors behind Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece,Frankenstein. Montillo recounts how—at the intersection of the Romantic Age and the Industrial Revolution—Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein was inspired by actual scientists of the period: curious and daring iconoclasts who were obsessed with the inner workings of the human body and how it might be reanimated after death. With true-life tales of grave robbers, ghoulish experiments, and the ultimate in macabre research—human reanimation—The Lady and Her Monsters is a brilliant exploration of the creation of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley’s horror classic.

This is a flash giveaway, so the contest runs from 3 p.m. ET to 4 p.m. ET today only! Enter to win by leaving a comment below. Winners will be picked at random and contacted directly. Open to US only.

Win a galley copy of MEMORY OF WATER

It’s Friday, and you know what that means – it’s time for another giveaway! This week we’re featuring a Voyager debut, THE MEMORY OF WATER by Emmi Itäranta, an amazing, award-winning speculative fiction novel by a major new talent, in the vein of Ursula K. Le Guin. The book publishes on June 10.

Global warming has changed the world’s geography and its politics. Wars are waged over water, and China rules Europe, including the Scandinavian Union, which is occupied by the power state of New Qian. In this far north place, seventeen-year-old Noria Kaitio is learning to become a tea master like her father, a position that holds great responsibility and great secrets. Tea masters alone know the location of hidden water sources, including the natural spring that Noria’s father tends, which once provided water for her whole village. But secrets do not stay hidden forever, and after her father’s death the army starts watching their town—and Noria. And as water becomes even scarcer, Noria must choose between safety and striking out, between knowledge and kinship.

COVENANT by Sabrina Benulis

Out today in paperback and ebook!

The haunting gothic tale started in Archon continues!

Once through the dark door, there is no turning back. . . .

A year ago, Angela Mathers, a talented artist with a tortured soul, enrolled at the Westwood Academy and encountered the angels who haunted her dreams. Then she discovered the dark truth: she is the Archon, a being of supreme power who will determine the fate of the universe. But with such power comes great danger, and for every force seeking to aid Angela there is another burning to stop her. After a scheming demon kidnaps the Book of Raziel—personified by Angela’s friend Sophia—Angela must find her way through a nightmarish game and enter the Door to Hell to rescue her only friend before it is too late.

The haunting gothic tale started in Archon continues with Covenant—a mesmerizing work of the paranormal in which a young woman discovers that she is caught in a labyrinth of intrigue where angels, demons, and all the creatures between Heaven and Hell will stop at nothing to possess her.

The perilous fate of both realms rests on her success.
