Something Wicked Comes!

Rainy Day Ramblings created this month-long celebration for Halloween! When I first read about it, I decided instantly I needed to participate. This killer spooktoberfest features an insane amount of book bloggers who go GA GA for paranormal books.  Take your spooky pick from witches, ghouls, zombies, vampires, Gods or werewolves, this Halloween giveaway has something for you! Their calling it the ultimate Blog Trick or Treating Event so get your pillow cases ready, minions and let's go treating!

Today is my day to participate in the hop and I'm celebrating one of my favorite authors, Kresley Cole.  From the giddyup, I've adored Cole's addicting style and smoke'n hot Immortals After Dark series.  The adult paranormal series rocks, minions and if you need more to persuade you then check out two of my reviews.

- A Hunger Like No Other - my review
- Wicked Deeds on a Winters Night. - my review

Cole is pretty amazing so when she recently released her first YA series which her website states is a "Supernatural Adventure for Young Adults" called Poison Princess, I nearly knocked over a few teenagers myself to get a copy when it released Oct. 2nd.  And now that copy is up for grabs for this month long Halloween extravaganza.  So what this series about?


The characters on Tarot cards are real.

The Huntress, the Fool, Death, the Lovers . . . and eighteen other Major Arcana all exist. These warriors, femme fatales, magicians, and devils each have uniquely lethal powers.

And they’re coming for me.

To survive, I’ll have to embrace my own terrifying abilities—and team up with dangerously handsome Jack Deveaux, one of the few people I know that also survived the Flash. But if Jack ever beholds what I truly am, will he abandon me to my fate . . . ?


What to read more?  Here's an excerpt.

What an amazing bloghop. My favorite books to read are YA contemporary, but I adore paranormal. I look forward to all these posts.

Maria Behar said...

I've been wanting to get my hands on this book for a while now! (Hopefully, I'll win it...) Kresley Cole is an amazing writer! Now that she's turned her talents to YA fiction, the result must be nothing short of AWESOME.

Thanks for this great giveaway!! And your blog ROCKS.

I love the premise of this novel. We often hear of the Tarot cards and the fates dealt out to characters. But this is different. The Tarots themselves are characters seeking the MC out. Some serious dangers are certainly part of this book. So stoked!

I love this series, thanks for sharing and for the giveaway Mina.

Thanks,
