Dragon Friday: Talon arc and custom dragon giveaway

Happy Dragon Friday!




Today's very special giveaway will be....




*drumroll*



A signed arc of TALON





Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.






And....



A custom clay dragon figurine!



Which means that, if you win, YOU get to decide what you want your dragon to look like.  You get to pick two colors and whether it is sitting or lying down.  You might want a black and green dragon:








Or a red and black dragon.






















Or a blue and white dragon.






















The choice will be up to the winner.  And don't forget the signed TALON arc, as well.  Giveaway will run until the 25th, and it is international.


So enter the Rafflecopter thingie below, and spread the dragon love!


(Giveaway is for one normal, two color custom dragon in the poses described. No crazy standing on head dragons or dragons with rainbow bellies. ;) After giveaway ends, I will contact the winner via email to determine what colors and poses they want for their dragon.)


ETA: WOW, 3000 entries!  You guys are awesome.  So, I'm adding a second prize.  IF we can get up to 4000 entries, I will add a SECOND Talon arc and a SECOND custom dragon figurine!  So keep spreading the dragon love, and good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  157. This is so awesome. I would seriously love black and a dark purple! Such a pretty combo :)

    ReplyDelete
  158. If I were a dragon, what color would I be? I don't really know. It depends on what my colors would be based off of, I guess. If it were simply what colors I'd like to be, I'd be varying shades of blue, along with some hints of green, because those are my favorite colors.
    If it's based off my personality, I'd either be really vibrant, bold colors--like red and gold--or I'd be more muted and soft colors that would blend in more--like black, gray, or dark blue. Why such a drastic difference between the two options? Because there is no in between for me. I'm either completely in your face, or you don't even know I exist. All or nothing.
    Ah, wait. I'm here as Brooke, the book nerd, the sweetheart. (I have different facets to my personality, you see.) So as Brooke, I think I'd be much softer and more gentle. Maybe a calm, soft blue--a periwinkle?--with some light gray or pearlescent silver accents.
