A Discovery of Witches Giveaway!






A most interesting giveaway here at Parajunkee's View. To celebrate the upcoming release of A Discovery of Witches which will release February 8, 2011. This is a two part giveaway ...


Part I - THE BOOK
Which will be shipped to you when it releases in February.



A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

Debut novelist Deborah Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense. Diana is a bold heroine who meets her equal in vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and gradually warms up to him as their alliance deepens into an intimacy that violates age-old taboos. This smart, sophisticated story harks back to the novels of Anne Rice, but it is as contemporary and sensual as the Twilight series-with an extra serving of historical realism.












Part II - THE BUTTONS
Which will be shipped out right after the win!

I'm going to be the first one to say I'd like to be a daemon, even though daemons vary a lot from book to book. (ie Daemon, Discovery of Witches, and then you have the His Dark Materials Trilogy confusing everyone. :) )

I find that I am in a delemma. I would normally alway pick being Vampire over Demons & wolves but witches is giving vamps a run for the money. (Depending on which author writes you) I find that the only pros to being a vampire is immortality, to never grow older, to entrall & maybe fly. Vamp cons if you stick to the original rules as I suspect would be the case- you can't eat food or chocolate & what you do have to eat in real life is gross. Blood tastes metallic. You ever get a paper cut & stick your finger in your mouth? Yuck! & No more feel good UV's because you can't go out into the sunlight.
Witches on the other hand doesn't seem to have any real cons. I haven't read enough books about witches to give a fair assessment but from what I do know about witches the only real con is immortality. They can do spells of any sort for any reason, eat whatever they want & spell themselves to never gain weight. They can fly anywhere they want and Sun is not even an issue. I guess I'd pick to be a witch unless the hubby was a vampire :D Happy Halloween.
