Giveaway: Geist by Philippa Ballantine

- This Giveaway Contest has Ended -

Book of the Order, #1
Author: Philippa Ballantine
Facebook || Twitter || Trailer || Excerpt
Publisher: Ace Books
Between the living and the dead is the Order of the Deacons, protectors of the Empire, guardians against possession, sentinels enlisted to ward off the malevolent haunting of the geists…

Among the most powerful of the Order is Sorcha, now thrust into partnership with the novice Deacon, Merrick Chambers. They have been dispatched to the isolated village of Ulrich to aide the Priory with a surge of violent geist activity. With them is Raed Rossin, Pretender to the throne that Sorcha is sworn to protect, and bearer of a terrible curse.

But what greets them in the strange settlement is something far more predatory and more horrifying than any mere haunting. And as she uncovers a tradition of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history, Sorcha will be forced to reconsider everything she thinks she knows.

And if she makes it out of Ulrich alive, what in Hell is she returning to?
I just finished reading Geist by Philippa Ballantine (Review to follow) and the lovely Ms. Ballantine was generous enough to give an extra copy of Geist to pass along to one very lucky winner.

Okay, I know, It's about time I jumped on the Giveaway bandwagon! I've had this blog since, what... March 2011? And I'm just now getting around to my first giveaway? Tsk, tsk. But what better way to get motivated, than to have an author nudge you along with an extra copy of their book, right?

So I got off my proverbial butt (because I have to actually sit down on my real butt to write this) and got busy. I'll admit, I'm excited and petrified at the same time because it's Fiction Fool's first EVER giveaway contest. Yes, you heard that right.
