It’s Giveaway Tuesday here at the Bookshelf Gargoyle, so named because I have two giveaways starting today (which is, in fact, a Tuesday). Giveaway number one is for a print copy of new release YA fantasy romance tale Ruined by Amy Tintera. I received a copy of this one from Allen & Unwin, to whom all thanks for their generosity must go, but I knew straight away that this wasn’t going to be my kind of YA. I did have a crack at the first chapter, which confirmed my initial impression, so there is nothing to do but offer it as a giveaway to the hordes of readers who DO like this kind of YA. Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war; her parents were killed and her sister was kidnapped. Even though Em is only a useless Ruined – completely lacking any magic – she is determined to get revenge.
Her plan is simple: She will infiltrate the enemy’s kingdom, posing as the crown prince’s betrothed. She will lead an ambush. She will kill the king and everyone he holds dear, including his son.
The closer Em gets to the prince, though, the more she questions her mission. Her rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life – and her family – on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.
Sound like your kind of thing?
