*Expired* Book Giveaway: Chalice

by Freebies4Mom on December 9, 2008 4:00 pm

Penguin Young Readers has offered another fabulous book giveaway, this time for the book Chalice by Robin McKinley. This book is for the teen audience and I’ll be giving a paperback advanced reader copy to three of my lucky readers.

Here’s more information about this book directly from Penguin:

As the newly appointed Chalice, Mirasol is the most important member of the Master’s Circle. It is her duty to bind the Circle, the land and its people together with their new Master. But the new Master of Willowlands is a Priest of Fire, only drawn back into the human world by the sudden death of his brother. No one knows if it is even possible for him to live amongst his people. Mirasol wants the Master to have his chance, but her only training is as a beekeeper. How can she help settle their demesne during these troubled times and bind it to a Priest of Fire, the touch of whose hand can burn human flesh to the bone?


Robin McKinley weaves a captivating tale that reveals the healing power of duty and honor, love and honey.




“Fans and new readers alike will greedily devour McKinley’s latest…A lavish and lasting treat.” –Publishers Weekly


“This novel is a delight…teens will find themselves drinking in this rich fairy tale as if it were honey trickling down their throats.” –School Library Journal


“…a narrative that is a sensory delight, laden with tangible tastes and scents.” –Booklist

I read every one of Robin McKinley’s books when I was in high school. I think they had 3 of them. I scoured everywhere for more, and was sad thats all I could find. I have never heard of this one, but I am going to have to check it out.

Don’t have any kids yet but I love Robin McKinley! Just recently finished her book Spindle’s End (a new take on sleeping beauty, a definate recomendation!) which was a great read, even for an adult. Right now I’m in between books, my next is Heart’s Hope by Orson Scott Card, I made a pledge to save on the holidays so I’m trying to finish crocheting for my neices and nephews.Thanks for a great give away, this book was already on my list! I just love fairytales/ fantasy and the retelling of fairytales!
