Splash into Summer! Hop & Giveaway!

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Welcome to 
the Splash into Summer Giveaway Hop!
You are currently at stop 222.

This Giveaway will run from May 25th through May 31st.
Winner will be announced June 1st!

So, What do we have here on this hop, you ask...
Well, I purchased and read this book.  And found I really enjoyed it!  Yes, it's a fantasy read, but it went quick for me as I felt drawn into the world that passed by quickly as I was flipping the pages.  Then I had the opportunity to meet this author in person at a convention, twice actually.  I, of course, had him sign my copy of the book.  But then at the second meeting I bought a second copy of the book and had him sign it.  Just for one lucky winner!  So I figured I would give it away here as his second book will be coming out in June, so this is a wonderful way to start the series. :)

Shadow's Son
By Jon Sprunk
In the holy city of Othir, treachery and corruption lurk at the end of every street, just the place for a freelance assassin with no loyalties and few scruples.

Caim makes his living on the edge of a blade, but when a routine job goes south, he is thrust into the middle of an insidious plot. Pitted against crooked lawmen, rival killers, and sorcery from the Other Side, his only allies are Josephine, the socialite daughter of his last victim, and Kit, a guardian spirit no one else can see. But in this fight for his life, Caim only trusts his knives and his instincts, but they won't be enough when his quest for justice leads him from Othir's hazardous back alleys to its shining corridors of power. To unmask a conspiracy at the heart of the empire, he must claim his birthright as the Shadow's Son . . .
