Book Giveaway! (oh yeah, and my review): The Escape by Kathryn Lasky

Horses of Dawn Book 1: The Escape by Kathryn Lasky

 

Are you ready for another giveaway? This time the lucky winner will receive an Advance Reading Copy of The Escape by Kathryn Lasky (author of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole series). This the first book in her brand new series Horses of the Dawn. (See my interview with the author here!)

The Escape by Kathryn Lasky is an action-packed adventure story set in Mexico in the 1500s inspired by the fascinating history of the wild mustangs of the North American west. The whole idea behind the novel really captured my imagination. The Escape will definitely appeal to fans of Lasky’s other animal adventure series (like the aforementioned Guardians), though probably not fans of more sweet, easy-going horse novels (this perhaps might be a better choice) due to the historically accurate violence that occurs throughout the novel. Think mean animal handlers, terrible sharks, and gruesome battle scenes, rather than child-animal friendship, pretty flowing manes, and horse grooming scenes and you won’t be disappointed! This novel has definite kid appeal (boys as well as girls) with its high-action mixed with animal humor.

Use the Rafflecopter widget below to win a copy of this novel. You only need to enter your name and email address to win. The other things, like following me on twitter, etc. are for bonus entries and are completely optional. Click here to see Rafflecopter’s Privacy Policy.
