Darklight by Lesley Livingston Giveaway!!

CONTEST CLOSED.

A few months ago Karen, which is one of my favorite publicists, gave me the chance to host a giveaway for Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston. Now, she is being yet again generous by letting me give away a copy of the second book, Darklight.

Summary: Faerie can't lie . . . or can they? Much has changed since autumn, when Kelley Winslow learned she was a Faerie princess, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved the mortal realm from the ravages of the Wild Hunt. Now Kelley is stuck in New York City, rehearsing Romeo and Juliet and missing Sonny more with every stage kiss, while Sonny has been forced back to the Otherworld and into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the remaining Hunters and Queen Mabh herself. When a terrifying encounter sends Kelley tumbling into the Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but destined to be cut short. An ancient, hidden magick is stirring, and a dangerous new enemy is willing to risk everything to claim that power. Caught in a web of Faerie deception and shifting allegiances, Kelley and Sonny must tread carefully, for each next step could topple a kingdom . . . or tear them apart. With breathtakingly high stakes, the talented Lesley Livingston delivers soaring romance and vividly magical characters in darklight, the second novel in the trilogy that began with wondrous strange.

+1 Answer This Question - What Supernatural Creature Would You Love To Be And Why?

I Would Love To Be A Vampire. I Have Always Loved Vampires But Since The Twilight Saga My Love For Vampires Was Re-Awakened. I Think It Would Be Kool To Be Like The Vampires In The Twilight Saga Because They Can Go Outside And Can Actually Sort Live A Normal Life Well As Normal As You Can Being A vampire.

If I was a supernatural creature I would be a witch or a vampire. Witches and vampires are powerful and confident. People never want to mess with them.

+1 I dunno, I've always had a soft spot for vampires and vampire lit. Then again, I could only be ATTRACTED to vampires, and not want to be one. Yeah, I've changed my mind. I think I'd want to be an angel instead; you're all mystical and you've got this spiritual/religious history thing going on, and yet you probably won't have the constraints that a vampire has. :)

This sounds like an absolutely awesome book! Please enter me.

+1 A: I would want to be a shape shifter of human and animal form (or combined, like a tiger claws in a human form). The reason? Well what girl WOULDN’T want to be able to change how they look at will. Plus if the bad guys start chasing you (which they always do) it would a LOT easier to hide when you could be any person or animal.
