In conjunction with the Going Public…In Shorts blog hop. My partner in crime, Gabrielle de Cuir has generously offered some great audio books for a giveaway.
Synopsis for each book from Goodreads:
A sweeping, threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars!
Mankind is silently infected by a millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person’s so-called “junk DNA” becomes activated, and depending on their racial and ethnic heritage they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the “others” that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren’t your usual vampires and werewolves – it goes much deeper than that.
Conceived by Jonathan Maberry, V Wars features stories from various “frontlines” as reported by such contributors as Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson (as well as Maberry himself, of course). The result is a compelling series of tales that create a unique chronicle of mankind’s response to this sudden, hidden threat to humanity. For readers who enjoyed: World War Z, Robopocalypse, 30 Days of Night and Zombies vs Robots.

Receiving a personal invitation from the wizard Od to become a gardener for her school in the great city of Kelior, he finds a home among every potential wizard who must be trained to serve the Kingdom of Numis. But unknown to the reigning monarchy is the power possessed by the school’s new gardener-a power that even Brenden isn’t fully aware of, and which is the true reason Od recruited him.

Along the way, secrets are revealed and the truth about the Baxter Family history is finally made known. Ultimately, in this portrait of family love, the Baxters cling to each other and to God’s promise of forever.
The tale begins with Alice chasing the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole, where she meets characters like the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts. The sequel, Through the Looking Glass, finds Alice in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Throughout, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice.Lewis Carroll’s enduring tale begins with Alice chasing the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole, where she encounters delightfully eccentric characters like the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts.
