Giveaway of Crux by Julie Reece

I am so excited about this giveaway! I read Crux a few weeks ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite reads this year. Full of action, romance, and viking mythology, Crux is a must-read.

It was kind of a fluke that I read Crux at all. Back in April, I downloaded the publisher's ARC on a whim. The description sounded interesting, and I hoped I might be able to get to it eventually. While riding (as a passenger!) on a 5-hour car trip to San Antonio a few weeks ago, I decided to give it a try. Again, it was kind of a fluke--it was the only book in my Nook I had not yet read, and Nook is the only way I can read (and not get carsick) while riding in the car.

The publisher's trailer:

I knew almost immediately that I would enjoy Crux; in fact, I totally loved it! The writing and characters and pacing and story all come together perfectly to make this one impossible to put down. I liked it so much that I emailed the publisher to see if they would let me do a giveaway on my blog, and they kindly obliged.

Crux (Julie Reece)

(summary from Goodreads)

She should have run. Now, she’ll have to fight.

Eighteen year old Birdie may be homeless, but she’s surviving, that is until a mysterious guy throws money in the air like a crazy game show host, and she grabs some with the idea she’ll be able to buy dinner that night.

In that singular moment, unassuming Birdie becomes the girl in everyone’s viewfinder. Thugs want to kill her. Money-guy wants to recruit her. The very hot, very rich, and very out of her league Grey Mathews wants to save her.

Birdie, though, wants nothing to do with any of them, until she realizes fate didn’t bring them all together.

Her heritage did.

Now, with only twenty-one days left, she’s got to decide whether to follow in the footsteps of those before her or risk her life for people she’s only just met.

Read my full review of Crux.
