It's a two-part giveaway to showcase the upcoming release of A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, which will release on February 8, 2011. Check out the synopsis of the book and a an awesome book trailer.
A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.
Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon an coveted treasure lost for centuries - and she is the only creature that can break it's spell.
Debut novelist Deborah Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense. Diana is a bold heroine who meets her equal in vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and gradually warms up to him as their alliance deepens into an intimacy that violates age-old taboos. This smart, sophisticated story harks back to the novels of Anne Rice, but it is as contemporary and sensual as the Twilight series - with an extra serving of historical realism.
Part 1 of the giveaway is for a finished copy of the book, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness which will be mailed to the winner when it releases in February.
Part 2 is for Book Buttons based on the book. These will be shipped as soon as a winner is chosen.
