Win a copy of Jacqueline Carey's NAAMAH'S KISS


I have five copies of the seventh volume in the Kushiel's Legacy series, Naamah's Kiss, up for grabs, compliments of the folks at Grand Central Publishing. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

Once there were great magicians born to the Maghuin Dhonn; the folk of the Brown Bear, the oldest tribe in Alba. But generations ago, the greatest of them all broke a sacred oath sworn in the name of all his people. Now, only small gifts remain to them. Through her lineage, Moirin possesses such gifts - the ability to summon the twilight and conceal herself, and the skill to coax plants to grow.

Moirin has a secret, too. From childhood onward, she senses the presence of unfamiliar gods in her life; the bright lady, and the man with a seedling cupped in his palm. Raised in the wilderness by her reclusive mother, it isn't until she comes of age that Moirin learns how illustrious, if mixed, her heritage is. The great granddaughter of Alais the Wise, child of the Maghuin Donn, and a cousin of the Cruarch of Alba, Moirin learns her father was a D'Angeline priest dedicated to serving Naamah, goddess of desire.

After Moirin undergoes the rites of adulthood, she finds divine acceptance...on the condition that she fulfill an unknown destiny that lies somewhere beyond the ocean. Or perhaps oceans. Beyond Terre d'Ange where she finds her father, in the far reaches of distant Ch'in, Moirin's skills are a true gift when facing the vengeful plans of an ambitious mage, a noble warrior princess desperate to save her father's throne, and the spirit of a celestial dragon.

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam)gryphonwood.net with the header "KISS." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy.

Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.

Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.

Good luck to all the participants!

Bout to do a review of the first three books of the series. I read the first book of the second trilogy and didn't find it on par with Carey's previous work.

So how long does it take you to process giveaways? This is the first time I've tried one.

bloggeratf... what sort of objective standard might you be judging her work on? Because the way I see it there's probably a lot of personal preference in relation to the plot that you're overlooking, eg: male protagonist with less than commonplace masculinity, or the society that he's in and what it allows for?
