The Magnificent 12: The Trap, by Michael Grant
I love Grant's Gone series and am extremely interested in his transmedia BZRK experience. When I found out one of his works was free on kindle, I had to get it!
In the thrilling second book of the Magnificent 12 series, Mack MacAvoy is challenged by his spectral mentor, Grimluk—who only appears in the shiny chrome pipes of bathrooms.
Mack must find the ancient ones, the great forgotten forces. Some will help; some not so much. But above all...
Learn the ways of Vargran!
Assemble the twelve!
Go to the nine dragons of Daidu.
Go to the Egge rocks.
Beware of . . . the trap.
Time is short! The wicked Pale Queen’s three-thousand-year banishment ends in thirty-five days, and she will be free to destroy the world. It’s up to Mack to stop her return. But what do all of Grimluk’s clues mean? Can Mack achieve everything he must do without getting killed by the evil Risky—and escape the trap?
The Magnificent 12: The Trap is another fast-paced episode in bestselling author Michael Grant’s hilarious fantasy-adventure series.
Raven, by Suzy Turner
After the inexplicable disappearance of Lilly Taylor's parents, she has no choice but to move to Canada where she unravels some frightening yet intriguing family secrets...
Raven is a fantasy novel for children and young adults set in the beautiful province of British Columbia.
Graveminder, by Melissa Marr
Melissa Marr is known to young adult readers as the author of the popular faery series Wicked Lovely. Her debut leap into adult fiction lands her in the small community of Claysville, a town where the dead walk free unless there their graves are not properly tended. Into this eerie maelstrom, Rebekkah Barrow descends as she returns to a place that she once believed she knew. Kelley Armstrong justly described Graveminder as "a deliciously creepy tale that is as skillfully wrought as it is spellbindingly imagined." A new genre author to watch.
I also must have had some lucky dust sprinkled on mew this week as I won a $25 Amazon Giftcard from the lovely Birgit it The Book Garden. She hosted the giveaway to celebrate reaching the 500 follower milestone! Her blog is awesome. Check her out!
Hope you all had great mailboxes too!
