glow ARC giveaway

Wednesday, August 10, 2011 |
Every now and again a book I’ve never heard of pops up on my radar (or in Shelf Awareness) and looks like something I could get into. And by ‘every now and again’ I mean each time I see a sci-fi book. I don’t go searching for them, but they usually find a way to get inside my head anyway, and start whispering things like, “you really, REALLY want to read me!” Le sigh. And I DO, you know. I do.

Amy Kathleen Ryan’s newest book Glow showed up on my doorstep courtesy of St. Martin’s Griffin, and I am determined to read it and then let someone else enjoy it as well. I think you know what that means – it’s time for a GIVEAWAY [insert unholy glee here]!

What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?
Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them...

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside.

Giveaway details: one entrant will receive an Advanced Reading Copy of Glow (due out September 13, 2011). Giveaway open internationally; will end August 24, 2011 at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be selected randomly and notified via email. To enter, simply fill out the FORM.

Good luck!
