Part of the reveal is an exciting contest where you can win THREE signed books from Jennifer Nielsen, INCLUDING the choice of THE CAPTIVE KINGDOM – or – the first ARC of this new historical when she receives it!

Ever since I read The False Prince, the first book of the Ascendance Trilogy, I have been a huge fan of her work. I wrote a review of The Shadow Throne here. **Spoiler Alert** The book is AWESOME! It even got my teenage reluctant reader hooked.

Here are the details of the contest. On Sunday visit Jennifer Nielsen’s Website. Click on her blog. There will be 15 Trivia squares – Each with a link to a question. Post your answer on the blog the link takes you to. So if I have question 3, you would click on that tile, answer the question here. The first correct answer unlocks a square revealing part of her new title. No worries though if you aren’t the first. Every correct answer is an entry point for the giveaway. So if you got all 15 answers correct – whether you were first or not – you will have 15 entry points.

This sounds like a ton of fun and I’m so excited to be a part of it. So – COME BACK SUNDAY for the trivia question and a lot of fun!
