Giveaway: Precious Blood


Today I have a fantastic giveaway to share with you all courtesy of Simon & Schuster! Up for grabs is a copy of Precious Blood by Tonya Hurley and a Precious Blood bookmark; to enter just fill out the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post! Please note however, that this book is the same as The Blessed, it has since been retitled and was re-released on May 14th.

PRECIOUS BLOOD

What if martyrs and saints lived among us? And what if you were told you were one of them?

Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy are three lost girls—each with their own personal demons. These girls meet one night when they all end up in the same hospital…and each wake up with a token from a boy they’ve only just met. Sebastian is gorgeous, mysterious, and has a plan for all of them. As each girl gets wrapped up in finding out just who Sebastian is, they each discover their own strengths, and realize the only way to save themselves is to save each other.

The story begins in PRECIOUS BLOOD and continues in PASSIONARIES, available 1/7/14.

  18. Wow, what a truly creepy book trailer! I love how they used one of my favorite Depeche Mode song in the trailer and it freaked me out. I don't thin I'll be able to listen to it without thinking of this book. *shudders* I've yet to read Hurley and I think I may start with this series.
