Special giveaway here! Enter to win a copy of C. S. Lakin's The Map Across Time! I haven't read this particular book but I have read Someone to Blame by C. S. Lakin, and not only did that book make my best fiction list for 2010, but it was at the top of the list! This author knows how to write intriguing plots. For a chance to win simply post what intrigues you about the book description below. I will select a winner sometime in the next week!

Map Across Time:Gates of Heaven Series (The Gates of Heaven Series)

Publisher's Weekly says about The Map Across Time:

“fast-paced and tightly plotted, which means that the reader will be quickly drawn into the complex twists and turns of the story and, in fairy tale tradition, led toward a surprising yet satisfying conclusion.”

About the book:

An ancient curse plagues the kingdom of Sherbourne, and unless it is stopped, all will fall to ruin. The King, obsessed with greed, cannot see the danger. But his teenage twin children, Aletha and Adin, know they must act. A hermit leads Adin to a magical map that will send him back in time to discover the origin of the curse. Once back, Adin must find the Keeper, who protects the Gate of Heaven, but all he has is a symbol as a clue to guide him. Unbeknown to him, Aletha follows her brother, but they both arrive in Sherbourne’s past at the precipice of a great war and there is little time to discover how to counteract the curse.

Once unexpected disaster after another forces the twins to make difficult choices. Adin’s only hope for saving his kingdom is to return to the future to manipulate events so his quest can succeed. Through his trials and failures, Adin learns that nothing can stop heaven from accomplishing its goal, and that all events work for the good of those who trust heaven.”

It takes place during the time where there were kings. I like reading book during that time period and he also visits the future. The book sounds very interesting. Please enter me in contest.

I love books with "ancient" plots and the fact that this revolves around a curse makes it very intriguing to me.

This is the truth that needs to be learned by everyone - young and old! And if this talented author has couched this within a fantasy novel, then she has a ready audience that needs to hear this! Can't wait!!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Sounds like a fun story to read to the kids - the age group of the twins sounds perfect for adventure.

I like that the two twins'(children)
in the story take the lead for
acting on the ancient curse and ultimately finding the way to counteract it...
Also, I like books that have plots with complex twists and turns!
Many thanks to you...
