A KIRKUS STAR! TIME FOR ANOTHER ENCHANTER HEIR ARC GIVEAWAY!

Well, now. More than a week has passed since my last giveaway, and a lot has happened. The rain stopped, I had a fantastic birthday, and The Enchanter Heir got a starred review from Kirkus!
Here's an excerpt:
...the twisty narrative works, propelled by the deft characterizations of tortured, frustrated, desperate Jonah and fierce, feral, determined Emma and held together by the ubiquitous soundtrack of the blues, both literally and metaphorically. Chima orchestrates a world gravid with smoke and grit and sudden death, throbbing with hopeless longings, messy affections, festering resentments, passionate hungers, inevitable betrayals, and miraculous flashes of beauty and grace.
A smoldering story soaked in tears, sweat and blood, constantly threatening to blaze into an inferno. Spellbinding. 

Whoa. Fans self.  I also received more Enchanter Heir ARCs from my publisher and my first actual copies of The Crimson Crown paperback (coming your way October 1.) 


And, so...I think it's time for another giveaway! 

Here are the deets! I'm giving away signed Enchanter Heir ARCs and swag to three lucky winners. Begins tonight at midnight, ends in seven days. If you won before, please give somebody else a chance to win. U.S. only!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

I found your first book "The Warrior Heir" at a Goodwill store while combing through the books. Before I had even finished it I started tracking down the next one. I am a 40 year old who just started reading fiction again within the last year. I read all three within a month or so. I am looking forward to the continuation of the story.

Ronda B. said...

I think that Mrs. Chima is a wonderful writer. Since I found her first book I have went on to read every book she has written. I also now have my entire family addicted to her work. We are all waiting on the new book and it cant come soon enough!

Jacob Lockwood said...

I want this so bad. I've been to two of her signings already. I've got to have one of these

So excited for the Enchanter Heir to come out. The Heir Series are some of the few books on my shelves that NEVER gather dust, because I read them over and over--never get tired of them. Thank you for writing such great fantasy novels--your writing is impeccable, the characters are real and engaging, and the plot is always believable. Great stuff--can't wait for Enchanter Heir to come out!

Beyond excited to get back into this world and meet some new faces (and for the return of some old, hopefully). I will read the ARC as soon as possible, putting my college-earned skills of late nights and little sleep to good use.

stephanie Ulakovic said...

I would love to win this. My grandma and I have read all of the heir books as well as the seven realms series. If I won I would read it and then let my grandma borrow it.

elin said...

If I win, the minute I get the book, I will begin to read it. When I'm finished, I will put it right next to The Dragon Heir. Probably two days later, I will pick it up again and read my favorites moments again :D

Robert Hicks said...

Have been with the Heir Series since my mother got me into reading in middle school. Warrior Heir was one of the few books I enjoyed those first few years of getting into reading(also got to make a pretty cool quilt book report for it in 8th grade). Have reread the first three books for the 5th or 6th time. I have also read all of the Seven realms series a few times.

Love your work and keep it up
Robert

Robert Hicks said...

I have been with your books since the Warrior Heir and I have to say that your books are what got me to read in the first place!

Can't wait for the newest addition the Heir series as well as any new content that you make.

I am such a huge fan of your work! Besides just being some of my favorite books, your novels really inspire me to pursue my dream of being a novelist myself one day. One of the things I love most about reading your books is seeing how real your characters are - I feel like I can pick them up, place them in any context, and still know exactly how they would react. This gives me something to work on in my own writing! Congrats on the positive feedback - I'm sure you'll be getting plenty more of that! - and I cannot wait to pick up a copy of Enchanter Heir as soon as it hits the bookshelves!

~Layna

Rebecca M Trujillo Batty said...

I would devour it and brag about it...ok, I'll do that anyway, I would just be able to do it much sooner with an ARC!Thanks for the opportunity! :)

Angela said...

I would love this!

CindaChima said...

Does anybody else wonder what kind of comments are deleted by the author?

Alexis and Justin said...

whoops I guess I was supposed to comment on here and not goodreads ... oh well! I will just tell you once more how much I love your books! They give me an escape from reality which sometimes we all need!

Angeline Taylor said...

I'd love to win, but if I don't, I'm still buying it. I'm so excited for this next book. I love your writing and these books. They are the perfect blend of everything I love in YA fantasy books!!

LisaKimya said...

I have been a huge fan ever since The Warrior Heir, and Cinda just keeps on writing more and more amazing books. Mrs. Chima is actually one of the few authors that I've ever read more than one book series of. She is quite fantastic, and I can't wait for The Enchanter Heir!

Ashley said...

I promise that the moment I get hands on a copy, no matter when, I will read it and fangirl over it. I'll probably brag to all my friends that I got it before they did too.
