Giveaway of Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken

Thanks to the generosity of Disney-Hyperion, I am giving away a copy of Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken. This book includes In Time and Sparks Rise, two novellas that were previously only published electronically, plus a brand new novella and a sneak peek at Alexandra Bracken's new book, Passenger.

Gabe's life has been devastated in the wake of the economic crash. The only option left for someone like him to escape his tragic past is to leave his small town behind and to attempt to become a skiptracer. This already almost-impossible task is made all the more difficult by his first "score,"a young girl who won't speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine.

Sam didn't think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam's dark childhood.

Lucas has a deadly secret--he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk everything to save her.

The government-run "rehabilitation camps" have been shut down, but kids with Psi powers are anything but free. Sam would rather be on her own than put in the care of a foster family and given the "cure"--a dangerous procedure that unclaimed kids across the country are being forced to undergo. But there's more at stake than just her own safety. Sam once made someone a promise, and the time has come to fulfill it.

Now that she's out of her camp, Mia only has one thought in her head: finding Lucas, her beloved older brother. She hasn't seen him since they were separated and taken to different camps years ago, before Mia even became Psi. When Sam, Lucas's childhood best friend, rescues Mia from the government's inept care, Mia learns that nothing is as simple as she thought--and the past that she's so desperate to salvage may not be possible to recover.

  1. Hmm... Funny thing about Alexandra Bracken. She wrote Brightly Woven, which is simply a marvel. Then, a couple of years later, she wrote The Darkest Minds, etc, which were nothing like her first book, stylistically speaking. It was as though another person had written them. I love Brightly Woven, but her later "style"? Just a tad too pedestrian for me, thank you. And I'd still love to find out what the heck had happened... Have a good weekend, Jen :)
