Win autographed copies of Sam Sykes' TOME OF THE UNDERGATES and BLACK HALO

Thanks to the author's generosity, I have a set of Tome of the Undergates (Canada, USA, Europe) and Black Halo (Canada, USA, Europe) which Sam Sykes will sign and personalize for one lucky winner!

Here's the blurb for Tome of the Undergates:

Lenk can barely keep control of his mismatched adventurer band at the best of times (Gariath the dragon man sees humans as little more than prey, Kataria the shict despises most humans and the humans in the band are little better). When they're not insulting each other's religions they're arguing about pay and conditions. So when the ship they are travelling on is attacked by pirates things don't go very well. They go a whole lot worse when an invincible demon joins the fray. The demon steals the Tome of the Undergates - a manuscript that contains all you need to open the undergates. And whichever god you believe in you don't want the undergates open. On the other side are countless more invincible demons, the manifestation of all the evil of the gods, and they want out. Full of razor-sharp wit, characters who leap off the page (and into trouble) and plunging the reader into a vivid world of adventure this is a fantasy that kicks off a series that could dominate the second decade of the century.

Here's the blurb for Black Halo:


...and the gates of hell remain closed. Lenk and his five companions set sail to bring the accursed relic away from the demonic reach of Ulbecetonth, the Kraken Queen. But after weeks at sea, tensions amidst the adventurers are rising. Their troubles are only beginning when their ship crashes upon an island made of the bones left behind from a war long dead.

And it appears that bloodthirsty alien warrior women, fanatical beasts from the deep, and heretic-hunting wizards are the least of their concerns. Haunted by their pasts, plagued by their gods, tormented by their own people, and gripped by madness personal and peculiar, their greatest foes may yet be themselves.

The reach of Ulbecetonth is longer than hell can hold

I really dislike the cover art on these books. They make me not want to read them.

Ludwig Van said...

These are some of the most ridiculous and tasteless book covers I have ever seen. Who are the morons in charge? Incredible...

Yona said...

Read it. Loved it. Can't wait for the next one!

I have to agree with the other cover comments. They just look so corny one assumes the book must be in the same lines.

Some of these contests have no appreciable benefits. Won a couple of books here about 10 months ago. No books in the mail till now.

I know its churlish to complain about a contest win but well :-(

and yes I think these covers are awful too. But quite liked the first part so will read the 2nd book as well
