FREE Copy of Just-Released Y/A Novel!

While you're at it, guess this film, too.

I have a free copy to give away of a gorgeous, just released, hardback Young Adult fantasy novel, one that's getting high-octane reviews. The jacket copy was some of the most compelling I've ever read, and the jacket art is beautiful. Listed below, I've picked out phrases from the book blurb. First person to name the novel, plus the title of the movie still above (can't make it too easy, right?shall receive the book via Priority Mail! Hint: The film, like the novel, features winged strangers. Ready? Go:

blood and starlight
human teeth
art student
blue hair
winged strangers

Doesn't that line-up just make you hunger to read it? Somebody evidently knows how to market precisely  Good luck!

UPDATE: Laura Barnes aces test!


  1. I know the answers but I haven't put them here because I'm from England and you might not want to mail it there. I emailed you though, just so I could show off :-)

  2. Ah Sarah, you are a girl after my own heart. UK postage would be a bit of a stretch for me; I probably ought to have said, "within the U.S." But I loved hearing from you!

  3. Is it Constantine?

    I really love a good angel book. Please oh please let me win.

  4. Nope, Erin, sorry. But you're welcome to try again. : )

  5. Ooh, ooh Is it Daughter of Smoke and Bone? And Wings of Desire?

  6. Ding ding ding! We have a winner: the incredibly clever Laura Barnes, whose insightful blog ( is one of my favorite sources of info on all things bloggy and writerly.

  10. Congrats, Laura! I didn't get the post announcement in my inbox in time to even make a guess, but I wouldn't have known the answer anyway :) Now I'm interested to read it though!
