I'm a little last minute with getting everything together for my giveaway (I warned you), so I'm just doing a giveaway of my ARC of The Quick by Lauren Owen that has been sitting in my car for a month* (US only) and a book of choice for $15 or less from the Book Depository that everybody can enter, as long as the site will ship to you. You can find the Rafflecopter at the end of the post, but I'm going to tell you a little about The Quick first.
Title: The Quick
Author: Lauren Owen
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: June 17, 2014
An astonishing debut, a novel of epic scope and suspense that conjures up all the magic and menace of Victorian London.
London, 1892: James Norbury, a shy would-be poet newly down from Oxford, finds lodging with a charming young aristocrat. Through this new friendship, he is introduced to the drawing-rooms of high society, and finds love in an unexpected quarter. Then, suddenly, he vanishes without a trace. Unnerved, his sister, Charlotte, sets out from their crumbling country estate determined to find him. In the sinister, labyrinthine city that greets her, she uncovers a secret world at the margins populated by unforgettable characters: a female rope walker turned vigilante, a street urchin with a deadly secret, and the chilling “Doctor Knife.” But the answer to her brother’s disappearance ultimately lies within the doors of one of the country’s preeminent and mysterious institutions: The Aegolius Club, whose members include the most ambitious, and most dangerous, men in England.
In her first novel, Lauren Owen has created a fantastical world that is both beguiling and terrifying. The Quick will establish her as one of fiction’s most dazzling talents.
You can read my review of The Quick HERE, but don't let the DNF lead you astray. It really was a good book, but I didn't have time to read it. (It's huge.)
I already stated what you could win at the beginning of the post, so I won't be repetitive. So it's going to work like this, whoever's name I draw first gets first pick of the two prizes. If you have any questions, you can email me or message me on Twitter.
