UPDATED! {Pre-Order Giveaway}: BLACKWOOD by Gwenda Bond

Hi, thanks for coming!

Blackwood by Gwenda Bond is coming September 4 from a new young adult imprint of Angry Robot called, Strange Chemistry. I was so happy to be able to review this book months in advance I decided on an impulsive pre-order giveaway!

Beautiful Cover!!

So, read the details below and enter for your chance to win!


On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just an outdoor drama for the tourists, a story people tell. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people now, an unlikely pair of 17-year-olds may be the only hope of bringing them back.

Miranda, a misfit girl from the island’s most infamous family, and Phillips, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony. The one thing they can’t dodge is each other.

Blackwood is a dark, witty coming of age story that combines America’s oldest mystery with a thoroughly contemporary romance.
