Bastard Giveaway: Den of Thieves by David Chandler

Thanks to the generosity of HarperCollins Publishers, I have the opportunity to offer two copies of Den of Thieves by David Chandler, first book in The Ancient Blades Trilogy. Second book in the series, A Thief in the Night just came out recently, and the third book, Honor Among Thieves is due out November 29, 2011.

I've been quite interested in the series personally, but haven't had a chance to have a look at it yet. I have bought the first book, so hopefully I'll have a chance of reading it soon.

Here's a description from their site:
"Born and raised in the squalid depths of the Free City of Ness, Malden became a thief by necessity. Now he must pay a fortune to join the criminal operation of Cutbill, lord of the underworld—and one does not refuse the master . . . and live.
The coronet of the Burgrave would fulfill Malden’s obligations, though it is guarded by hungry demons that would tear the soul from any interloper. But the desperate endeavor leads to a more terrible destiny, as Malden, an outlaw knight, and an ensorcelled lady must face the most terrifying evil in the land."

Participants have to be 18 years of age or older to participate. Void where prohibited by law. Giveaway rules are subject to change. 

The giveaway is open for US mailing addresses only, and it will run from October 2, 2011 until 11:59pm ET on October 6, 2011.

  14. Seems like many people are having trouble leaving comments to enter the giveaway because of some updates in Google/Blogger.

    If that's the case, feel free to email me at bastardbooks @ gmail with the appropriate entry information (GFC/Twitter usernames, etc.).

  23. Thanks to all of you for participating. Those that emailed me, and I replied, rest assured that you have been added to the participant list.

    To those that weren't able to comment to enter the giveaway, I appologize for the inconvenience, but it was out of my control. Seems like Blogger is doing some tweaking and it's affecting some.

    Anyways, I don't envision having much of a delay finding out the winners.


  24. Smooth with an interesting world. I enjoy the anti hero and the tension of the writing. Recommended to all who like bottom up fantasy.
