Did someone say giveaway??? Why, yes! To help kickoff the Unity Book Tour going on here (be sure to check out the grand prize giveaway too! A Kindle and a $100 Amazon Gift card), I’ll be giving a copy of FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS to one lucky winner!
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is one of the most anticipated YA release this fall (Oct 10 is the release date). I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful friend send this over to me, and would like to pay it forward by passing this book on (and yes, this giveaway is open internationally.)
The book blurb:
An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl’s quest to become Empress–and the darkness she must unleash to achieve her destiny.
Eighteen-year-old Xifeng is beautiful. The stars say she is destined for greatness, that she is meant to be Empress of Feng Lu. But only if she embraces the darkness within her. Growing up as a peasant in a forgotten village on the edge of the map, Xifeng longs to fulfill the destiny promised to her by her cruel aunt, the witch Guma, who has read the cards and seen glimmers of Xifeng’s majestic future. But is the price of the throne too high?
Because in order to achieve greatness, she must spurn the young man who loves her and exploit the callous magic that runs through her veins–sorcery fueled by eating the hearts of the recently killed. For the god who has sent her on this journey will not be satisfied until his power is absolute.
