Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.
There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

“A wild, energetic  novel that proves girls CAN be warriors while still being true to themselves.” 
      —Sarah Dessen, author of The Moon and More

Alex is a YA fantasy author, a Tamora Pierce addict, a horse rider, and paramedic. The latter two tend to hand in hand a bit more often than one would like. Alex started writing at 2 am.

He cocked his head, regarding her for several seconds. “No.” The word was mild. He switched the sword back into his left hand. “Fight.” 

Fine. She skipped the salute and went for his throat. 
The throat moved. And continued moving. 
The harder she swung, the more Savoy slid, his very lack of force mocking her efforts. An urge to hurt him suddenly gripped her, and Renee threw her whole weight behind the blows, aiming for his ribs, his thighs, his hurt shoulder. If a blow connected, just one, just once, he’d feel her worth, her 
potential, he’d know she belonged here.

  1. I would go with superpowers for sure.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    Happy blogoversary! :)

  2. 2 billion dollars (superpowers are a close second)

  3. It's really hard to choose between 2 billion dollars and superpowers, but the money would be more useful to me. :)

  4. Easy, I'd say 2 billion dollars because with that money I can take care of my family, buy a house, buy a MacBook Pro AND pay a mad scientist to devolop some cool genetic modifications & create awesome super powers lol

    Take care!

  5. It would depend on the super power, otherwise it would have to be the 2 billion dollars.

  6. Can I have both? haha if not i'd probably take the money. Superheroes have horrible lives

  7. Two million. I'm sure i could hire someone with super powers if needed.

  8. Superpowers! (invisibility? :o3)

  9. Probably the money... I could buy new books!
