December Comment Contest: Win a Copy of Radiant Darkness

Someone mentioned that they came back to check the poll this morning to see what book had won and it was gone. Sorry for the confusion! I removed it as soon as the poll was closed so I could surprise you this morning. So here we go.

So although the poll on the blog had a very clear winner due to some behind the scenes votes we had a bit of an upset. So look below to see what book won the contest. And then start commenting!

How to enter: Each qualifying comment you leave on this blog equals one entry into the pot. The more you comment, the better chance you have at winning. Your fate is in your own hands. So if you really want the book, comment a lot!At the end of the month I randomly pick one winner for the prize. It's that easy. Qualifying comments do not include "please enter me" or other contest-related comments.

This month you have a chance to win a new ARC copy of Radiant Darknessby Emily Whitman. To win it, comment away until 11:59 p.m. PST on December 31st. The top 10 commentors will get extra entries into the contest. You can check the top 10 using the widget in the left sidebar.

About the Book (from Amazon.com): "He smiles. "Hello."

It's a deep voice. I can feel it reverberate in my chest and echo all the way down to my toes.

I know I should leave, but I don't want to. I want to keep my senses like this forever. I'm all eye, all ear, all skin.


Persephone lives in the most gorgeous place in the world. But her mother's a goddess, as overprotective as she is powerful. Paradise has become a trap. Just when Persephone feels there's no chance of escaping the life that's been planned for her, a mysterious stranger arrives. A stranger who promises something more—something dangerous and exciting—something that spurs Persephone to make a daring choice. A choice that could destroy all she's come to love, even the earth itself.

In a land where a singing river can make you forget your very name, Persephone is forced to discover who—and what—she really is."
