Book Giveaway: The Twelve (ARC) (9/8/2012)

Continuing the theme of the undead, I have an ARC of Justin Cronin’s The Twelve to give away. Given the trumpets and fanfares that heralded its predecessor, The Passage, I’m guessing this is going to be a major release when it comes out in October, with possibly even slightly more attention, shelf-space, bloggage and window displays than my own The King’s Assassin that comes out at much the same time [1]

This is an ARC – that’s an advance uncorrected review copy for anyone who didn’t know that, so it hasn’t been proofread. Usual deal – comment on this post and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy of the book. Surprisingly no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, but it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. The record stands t two and a half months…

[1] I’m tempted to offer a sweetie to anyone who actually manages to find a physical copy of it for sale in an actual bookshop, but never mind…[2]

[2] The King’s Assassin, that is. Not The Twelve. I haven’t got that many sweeties.

    Plllleeeeaaase, I am seriously addicted to this story! Such a torture to make us(the fans) wait two years for the sequel! Although it gave me a chance to reread the Passage…as I had forgotten most of the middle storyline!

  27. John G says:

    Please consider me for the ARC. I can’t wait for this book!

  28. Loretta says:

    I just finished my 4th reading of “The Passage” and am beyond ready for “The Twelve.” The delay in releasing this book has had me bummed so that I lost some excitement until I picked up The Passage again. One of the advance reviews has got me worried: whose side is Lish on? Really? And what happened to Sara? For those of you who haven’t read The Passage, start there, but be warned, you will be impatient for The Twelve.

  29. PJ Tiberio says:

    I have been awaiting the sequel since the moment I finished “the passage” in may of 2010. Might be my most anticipated read ever.

  30. Stephen says:

    Sorry – this one’s closed and won a while back.
