Book of the Day: Raven’s Quest

The winner of yesterday’s book is Stephanie T., who said, “You were actually the first romance author I tried so I’m partial to your Elemental Witch series, in particular, Witch Heart. The title was perfect for the feel of the book. Adam was fabulous btw.” Congrats! Please drop me an email! Anyabast (at) gmail.com.

Today’s book….

New York Times bestselling author Anya Bast spins a spellbinding epic fantasy of a man and woman torn between love and war, magic and mystery, passion and revenge…

Once, Gallus Lucan was in line to inherit the Dragon Throne of Numia—until his future was crushed and his family slain by his malevolent uncle Magnus. Now Lucan has only one ambition: overthrow Magnus and take back what is rightfully his.

Branna ta Cattia is the Raven, a high priestess who has come to Numia to defeat its tyrant. It’s a journey made on the strength of her prophetic dreams, visions of ancient rituals, sacred spells, and of a handsome stranger destined to help her—all in the name of stopping Magnus’s oppression. But Branna’s stranger is more than she expected. For Lucan wants victory his own way. To hell with the consequences.

As the magic of one woman’s love and the brute force of one’s man revenge unfold, Lucan and Branna realize their destiny as spirit mates—and their fears that the ultimate cost of winning freedom could be greater than either imagined.

  1. I am partial to having a paperback but I’m getting used to my kindle. 🙂

  2. Love paperbacks best, hardbound, then audio-books. Have yet to find time to try e-books, but my brother and son both love their Kindles.

  3. I use both paper books and ebooks (on 3 different devices). All the options have pros and cons. But if I had to choose just one type, it would be paper books. I love to carry around a book. I love the way it feels. And I love to share favorite books and get other people hooked!

  4. I prefer books in general I think lol… I read a lot of both. Have readers/pc stocked with ebooks and my nightstand and dresser filled with frequently visited tbr piles. The portability, space saving, and such is awesome on ebooks – plus have found some great ebook only authors. I will still always love to hold the book in my hand, flip through the pages, browse through the selection in stores etc though :).

  5. I prefer paperbacks. I really only like ebooks whenI travel. It is so much easy to have all my books on my ipad.

  6. I don’t own a reading device, but I do occasionally download books onto my computer. I prefer reading paperback books. There’s something special about the way a book feels in my hand and the look of the cover.

  7. Although I enjoy both, I have a preference for paperback books. But I do like the convenience of the ereader when I travel, I used to pack 4 to 6 books to take with me and would still end up buying more, and not to mention having to deal with the added weight to my suitcase. So the ereader eliminates the issue of how many books to take because you can essentially take as many as you want and without any additional weight to your luggage lol

  8. I don’t have a real preference. Both fit a need. I like the feel of a paperback, but prefer to take my Nook when traveling anywhere. I will, for a couple of authors, continue to buy their paper back books, just to have.

  9. Though I do have a Kindle and think it is totally awesome, I prefer paperback 🙂

  10. I enjoy both!!

    I have a huge collection of both.

    I’m in need of updating my ebookreader. I have an old ebookwise which is wonderful, but doesn’t read pdf’s!! boohoo.

    in Germany

  11. I love both my kindle and real paperback books. I carry my kindle with me everywhere so I can read no matter where I am. But I love the feel of books, so I still buy those. However, I’ve been good and only buy books for certain authors where I’ve already started a particular series of theirs in paperback.

  12. A paperback to me is a ‘real’ book. It’s tangible. I have a kindle & love it but it’s elusive and vapour. I half expect the stories to vanish & go back to whence they came & trust me they have.

  13. I know I”m too late to enter but would like to answer the question, anyway. Actually I prefer both. I have both a Sony Reader and Kindle and I love both. I have been following many lesser known authors for years and they only publish in ebook format, so the ereaders are quite wonderful.

    On the other hand, I have started many series in paperback and would like to continue reading them in that format. Plus there is just something about holding a book which I enjoy. And I have tons of book markers which I just love. I really can’t use them with an ereader, can I?? 🙂

  14. I’ll take my books any way I can get them so I have no preference between print books or e-books.
