I'm so stoked, and I hope yall are too! You have definitely been a lot in my thoughts lately as I've pondered which books to give to you. (man, I love giving books to people, it's like giving people a new friend) and couldn't decide... so finally I said 'heck, it's not like it's the only time you're ever going to do it' and decided to give TWO books this time.
First of all, I will be giving away a BRAND-NEW, HARDBACK copy (love hardbacks) of THE ALLOY OF LAW, by Brandon Sanderson. This book cries out to the steampunk nerd in all of us, blending a ridiculously awesome magic system, a remarkable city, and a culture you've never seen before - unless, of course, you've read the other MISTBORN books by Brandon Sanderson. This book is a stand-alone book. You can read it and never read the other ones and enjoy it all the same. Not that I'm saying that's what you should do. I'm just saying it's a stand-alone.
You're going to want to own this book just for the awesome cover art. Arentcha? : ) The story inside matches the artwork. Trust me.
Along with that, if you remember, I did a post way back when about saving books?
This is one of the books I've saved, and it's one of my all time favorites. I think it's my second favorite novel ever, after Les Miserables.
It's a little scuffed around the edges. Proof of a good book - someone loved this book before I did.
