Booty Tuesday -- Yasmine Galenorn's Night Seeker

Carrying home Booty
As you know, I returned from the RWA National Conference with Booty!
I haz signed books.  This swag is all new books, from writers I admire.
One of these books can be yours.

This week, win a signed copy of Yasmine Galernorn's Night Seeker.  This is just fresh off the presses.  A July 2012 book.
the swag

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, the Vampiric Fae are on the move, hunting anyone in their path. As the war with the vampires ratchets up, Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court, enshrouds New Forest in her chilling grasp.

Cicely Waters, owl shifter and Wind Witch, has rescued the Fae Prince Grieve at a great cost. Their reunion has lost them the allegiance of the Summer Queen--and the tolerance of the vampires. In desperation they turn to the Consortium for help. Now, to regain the good will of Lainule, they must dare to enter the heart of Myst's realm. But as Cicely and Grieve embark on their search for the heartstone of Summer, Winter is already wreaking her terrifying revenge.  (back cover copy)

This is the third in the trilogy, following Night Mist and Night Veil.  As you can see -- there's lots going on.  And the cover has an owl on it. (You may buy it here if you happen to feel unpoetic.)

  1. They seek the heartstone of Summer.
    Has a few tricks up its sleeve.

  2. Indigo winter,
    Fresh blood hot on a chill wind,
    Silent winged hunter.

  3. Ooooh. Now THAT is cool.

    A mystical witch of Fae
    Wields a knife in the heat of the day.
    At night she's an owl
    And flies on the prowl,
    So it's Chick Lit we have here. Oy vey!

  5. Eons of Fae magick gone awry
    Until now, the hunt has begun
    to seek revenge to those standing by
    grieve the lost for those undone

  6. An owl lands upon a snowy fence
    beats his wings
    a hard tattoo

    Somewhere in the court of the forest
    a man waits
    a seeker of wind
