Giveaway: The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu

Posted on: June 30, 2009


the iron hunt 2

In honor of Marjorie’s release of Darkness Calls today, I’m giving away one copy of The Iron Hunt.

From Barnes and Noble:

Silver smoke winds around my torso, peeling away from my ribs and back, stealing the dark mist covering my hands and lower extremities . . . tattoos dissolving into demon flesh, coalescing into small dark bodies. My boys. The only friends I have in this world. Demons.

I am a demon hunter. I am a demon. I am Hunter Kiss.

By day, her tattoos are her armor. By night, they unwind from her body to take on forms of their own. Demons of the flesh, turned into flesh. This is the only family demon hunter Maxine Kiss has ever known. The only way to live-and the very way she’ll die. For one day, her demons will abandon her for her daughter to assure their own survival-leaving Maxine helpless against her enemies.

But such is the way of Earth’s last protector-the only one standing between humanity and the demons breaking out from behind the prison veils. It is a life lacking in love, reveling in death, until one moment-and one man-changes everything . . .

Along with the book, the winner will also receive a flask necklace inspired by Kim MacDougall’s book Luminari and some author swag. (Thanks to Kim for donating the necklace!)

I’m limiting this to the US only due to shipping costs (sorry international readers).  Since I’m sending it myself, PO Boxes are fine.
