Giveaway! 'Twelve' (Jasper Kent)

What's better than a competition to win copies of Jasper Kent's 'Twelve'? Why, a competition where you can win signed copies of course! :o)
What's even better than that? A competition that anyone can enter. It doesn't matter where you live, this competition is open to all!

Thanks to Transworld Books, I have three signed copies of 'Twelve' to give away to three lucky readers. To enter, all you need to do is drop me an email (address at the top right hand side of the screen) telling me who you are and what your mailing address is. I'll do the rest :o)

How long is this competition open for? I'm on holiday for the next week and a bit so that's how long you've got to enter... (There will be a post, when I get back, that says all competitions are closed...)

Good Luck!

I own and read the book. Therefore I won't take part. Here are some arguments why you should take part and read it:

1812... Napoleon's invasion of Russia...
1812... Voordalak(vampire) tales are still told to children in Eastern Europe....

We follow the story of Aleksei Ivanovich Danilov. He is a Captain in the Russian army and member of a special force which operate behind the enemy lines.

Aleksei and his comrades get in contact with another special force: A group of Oprichniki. Twelve men named after the apostles....

I read several reviews before. Most of them praised the book.
I must admit they are so right!
What an awesome read!

Twelve is several books in one: It is a war book, it is book about military background of Napoleon's invasion, it is a book about Eastern Europe vampires, it is a book about trust and faith, love and hate, horrors of war.

Jasper Kent depiction of war, horror, love, inner conflicts through Aleksei's eyes is fascinating and amazing. And the whole story is narrated from Aleksei's point of view.

Twelve is the first book of a series called the Danilov Quintet and I can't wait for the next book.
