Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop

2nd Annual Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop
March 17th to 22nd

For my giveaway, you will have a choice of two books with connections to Ireland.  In addition to selecting the book you want, you will then have a choice of either a paperback from The Book Depository or an e-book from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  

The first is a book involving Celtic mythology.  I am currently reading it as part of a read-along - the Kiss-Me I'm Irish Read-Along (see my side-bar on the left for more information about this read-along).  

Hounded is the first book in The Iron Druid Chronicles.  

Summary:  The first in an original, back-to-back three-book series about Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids. Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with a modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series.--Kelly Meding, author of "Three Days to Dead." Original.

The second book is another book I am reading for a read-along.  The Yellow House is set in 20th Century Ireland.

Summary:  "The Yellow House" delves into the passion and politics of Northern Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century. Eileen O'Neill's family is torn apart by religious intolerance and secrets from the past, but she is determined to reclaim her ancestral home and reunite her family.

Now for some fun freebies I have found on Amazon:  (click on the cover images or title to get your free books)

The Way Life Was Forever by Carey Corp

Summary:  Sun-dwellers are foul monsters that eat a human’s flesh from their bones…or so sixteen-year-old Lyra has always been taught. To keep their citizens safe, her colony seals itself into the vaults by day. 

Moonwalkers are horrible beasts that feed on the blood of men…at least, that is what Perseus was told. The only sure survival for his people is to lock themselves into their repositories each night. 

Both labeled as undesirable by their respective kinds, a fated meeting in the forbidden forest offers Lyra and Perseus an unexpected chance at happiness. If they can overcome their own prejudices and discover the truth about one another before time runs out. 

Can the sun-dweller and the moonwalker learn that when reality is distorted by hate and terror sometimes the only thing to truly fear is fear itself? 

THE WAY LIFE WAS FOREVER – a YA short story from award-winning author, Carey Corp.
Young Marian's Adventures in Sherwood Forest: A Girls to the Rescue Novel by Stephen Mooser

Thirteen-year-old Marian and her friend Robin team up to rescue her father whom the Sheriff has wrongly condemned to death.
