Book giveaway - Forever Richard by Sue Dent
Werewolves and Vampires from a Christian perspective! In the wake of the hit series Twilight, I challenge you to try Sue Dent's acclaimed book Forever Richard. She's even willing to throw in a free copy of the first book in the series to whoever wins!
Recently I picked up a batch of highly unusual books published by the The Writers Cafe Press. These are books that you would never see in the mainstream Christian market. That doesn't mean they aren't good. It only means that the stories do not fit into the market's very tight acceptable box. (A box that now excludes pirates of all things--say it isn't so!) However as Ms. Dent pointed out to me, these books have been approved as quality Christian reading so you needn't worry they have anything unacceptable in them. Anyway, I haven't read these books, and doubt I'll have time in the near future, so I decided to give them away and allow others to enjoy them. This first story is a Christian tale about vampires and werewolves! If you'd like to be entered into a drawing, just leave a comment telling me why you would be interested in reading this book. Oh, and I just talked to Sue Dent and she is willing to throw in the first book in the series, Never Ceese too!
Here's a blurb about the story.
The saga of redemption and spiritual triumph readers enjoyed in Never Ceese continues in Forever Richard. Cassie Felts, graduate student and reluctant believer of such things as vampires and werewolves, couldn't be happier for Richard and Ceese Porter. Their curses lifted and after hundreds of years apart, they can now celebrate being brother and sister once more. Even Rodney, Cassie's college roommate and former nemesis, shares her relief. But will the faith that saved Richard and Ceese be enough to defeat the new evil that threatens them all? Cassie learns that Dr. Clayton Henderson, the corrupt stem-cell researcher, has acquired the vampire's curse and has managed to transfer it to Rodney's troubled, drug-addicted buddy Josh. Addict or vampire, Cassie can see Josh isn't handling his new cravings for blood any better than he did his old habit. Their best hope seems to be taking Josh to Richard's isolated country estate in England. There, Josh can learn to temper his desire to curse another while they try to figure out how to deal with the impossible-to-kill Dr. Henderson. Their mission becomes more complicated when they find a new vampire inhabiting Richard's castle, a malevolent werewolf stalking Ceese, and a long-lost relative who shows up carrying a sawed-off shotgun and an ancient knife he claims has supernatural powers. Will the faith that redeemed two lost souls before be enough to overcome the wicked forces that now threaten to destroy them all?
Even if you're not crazy about werewolves and vampires, I'm sure you know someone who is!
