It’s finally here…release day for Mindee Arnett’s Avalon! I know by now everyone is most likely aware of this book, and today you can finally get your hands on a copy. I haven’t read it yet, but I have seen some glowing reviews around the blogosphere, so it’s definitely on my list to read. Today I have an excerpt for you to read, and the publisher is giving away two signed copies of Avalon, plus a $50 gift card to the ebook retailer of your choice (U.S. & Canada only)! Keep reading to enter the giveaway!


Of the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie thousands of light-years from First Earth—and out here, no one is free. The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing: metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light.

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they’re damn good at it. Jeth doesn’t care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents’ ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he’ll go to get the freedom he’s wanted for so long.

With pulse-pounding action, a captivating mystery, and even a bit of romance, Avalon is the perfect read for hard-core sci-fi fans and non–sci-fi fans alike.

  1. Lot of Firefly comparisons on this one. It may make my list at some point for that reason. Definitely will if I can win a copy.

    • I’ve heard the Firefly comparison isn’t quite right, but who knows? I’m a huge Firefly fan so maybe I should read it just to find out!

  2. Oo oo oo – I have started this one recently – really enjoying SF YA lately so I hope it lives up to my expectations!

  3. sounds pretty awesome. I want to read this, but will it be too scyfy for me? IDK. Ill def give it a shot! Thanks for the giveaway & being an awesome blogger *high5*

  4. Can I simply say what a relief to uncover someone that truly knows what they’re discussing over the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people need to look at this and understand this side
    of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
