The Thanksgiving Reader’s Choice C*ntest

Before I get to Reader’s Choice, we have today’s stops on the River Roadvirtual tour. Please see the column at right for the full list of prizes!

***Heaven help us all, but Jean Lafitte is doing an interview at BadassBook Reviews today. He will also be responding to comments, so just be warned. I have no control over the man. In addition to entry for the $25 gift card, commenters are also up for a signed copy of River Road (choice of US or UK cover).
***I’m being interviewed at What the Cat Read – find out who my current favorite character is! Enter for the official gour prizes, including the Kindle or Nook; a comment also will enter you for the $25 GC and a mystery book. 

***Finally, a separate giveaway is being held at Pure Textuality for a copy of River Road–head on over and enter to win a copy! Ginny did a great review last week, and now they’re sponsoring a giveaway (even if you have the book, it would make a nice holiday gift, right?).
And now…on to this week’s Reader’s Choice Contest….
It’s a light release week this week because of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States. Still, a few interesting things from which to choose…and because it’s Thanksgiving and I want you to have something to be thankful for, for this week only, pick ANY book, ANY genre, ANY release date, and if your name is picked…it’s yours! It does not have to be from this new release list.
What do you want to read? As always, leave a comment telling me the book you’d most like to win, and maybe will make your wishes come true. If the book is part of a series, you can request the first book in the series. Your choice of print or digital unless otherwise stated. International? Of course! As long as Book Depository delivers to your country, please enter.
Here we go….
Rogue Rider (Lords of Deliverance #4), by Larissa Ione (November 20, Grand Central Publishing)
Jillian Cardiff came to this remote mountain town to forget the demon attack that almost killed her. Instead, she rescues, and falls for, a gorgeous stranger who has no memory of anything other than his name. Handsome, charming, and protective, Reseph seems like the kind of man whom Jillian can trust. He’s also the kind of man who can be very dangerous. Reseph may not know why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian’s life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian’s neighbors are killed, and demon hunters arrive on the scene, Reseph fears that he’s putting Jillian in danger. And once it’s revealed that Reseph is also Pestilence, the Horseman responsible for ravaging the world, he and Jillian must face the greatest challenge of all. 
Nightmare (Jack Nightingale #3), by Stephen Leather (November 20, 47North)
What goes around, comes around. Jack Nightingale learned that as a cop and discovered that it was just as true in the world of the supernatural. His life changed forever on the day he failed to stop a young girl from throwing herself to her death. Ever since, he’s been haunted by thoughts that he could have done more to save her. Now her cries for help are louder than ever. Is she trapped in eternal torment? Can Nightingale put things right? Or are the forces of darkness torturing and deceiving him in order to gain the ultimate prize: his soul? Nightingale will have to face down the powers of the police, south London gangs and Hell itself to find out. And evil is closer than he thinks. U.S. release.
Young Adult. Eleven-year-old Darwen Arkwright’s life changed forever when he first set foot in Silbrica, the wondrous and magical world beyond the mirror. Now, he and his friends Rich and Alexandra, the Peregrine Pact, must journey to Costa Rica to save a boy who’s been stolen by the Insidious Bleck, a giant tentacled creature that leaves destruction in its wake. But what at first seemed to be a single kidnapping turns out to be an elaborate conspiracy that threatens the very future of our world. And this time, old allies can’t be trusted, and the danger runs deeper than Darwen could have ever imagined. 
Steampunk: An Illustrated History of Fantastical Fiction, Fanciful Film and Other Victorian Visions, by Brian J. Robb,James P. Blaylock and Jonathan Clements (November 17, Voyageur Press)
Steampunk is the hottest science fiction counterculture, alive in fantasy novels, films, arts and crafts, fashion, comic books, music, computer games, even architecture. Enter a world of Victorian technology, where steam power meets space travel. From Jules Verne and H. G. Wells to Alan Moore, Hayao Miyazaki, and Philip Pullman, the genre has captured imaginations around the globe. Here’s the first grand, illustrated history of the counterculture movement in a book fittingly stylish in its design, package, and artwork. From the fastest dirigibles and steam-powered ray guns to fashionistas Lady Gaga and Alexander McQueen, the whole story of the gaslight romance is here.
Spirit’s End (The Legend of Eli Monpress #5), by Rachel Aaron(November 20, Orbit)
Eli Monpress is clever, he’s determined, and he’s in way over his head. First rule of thievery: don’t be a hero. When Eli broke the rules and saved the Council Kingdoms, he thought he knew the price, but resuming his place as the Shepherdess’s favorite isn’t as simple as bowing his head. Benehime is setting in motion a plan that could destroy everything she was created to protect, and even Eli’s charm might not be enough to stop her. But Eli Monpress always has a plan, and he’s pulling in every favor he can think of to make it work, including the grudging help of the Spirit Court’s new Rector, Miranda Lyonette. But with the world in panic, the demon stirring, and the Lord of Storms back on the hunt, it’s going to take more than luck and charm to pull Eli through this time.
Elemental, by Antony John (November 21, Dial)
Young Adult. A lost colony is reborn in this fantasy adventure set in the near future. Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an Element, earth, water, wind or fire, he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe. In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas’ world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine.
