It’s Armchair BEA Giveaway Day, and I am so excited! I didn’t host a giveaway for Armchair BEA last year, but I recently did one for my one-year blogiversary, and I loved it. I wish I had the money to run giveaways for my readers all the time, but unfortunately that’s not the case.
But I did want to join in the fun this time around. So I’m giving away five – that’s right, FIVE – books by my favorite author, James Rollins. These are all from my personal bookshelves… used, obviously… but still in good condition. Since I’ll be shipping these myself, I’m limiting the giveaway to U.S. entries only. (Sorry, international friends!)
The giveaway is open through the end of the day Saturday (11:59pm CDT). Anyone in the U.S. is welcome to enter, although Armchair BEA participants will earn bonus entries. Also, in keeping with the spirit of Armchair BEA, you can earn extra entries by connecting with bloggers. Just leave a genuine comment (it doesn’t have to be profound, but it should be more than a few words) on any Armchair BEA posts this week, here and throughout the blogosphere.
Five winners will each receive one of the following:
The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the world’s most inhospitable rainforest – a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing… and came out with both intact. Unable to comprehend this inexplicable event, the government sends Nathan Rand into this impenetrable secret world of undreamed-of perils to follow the trail of his vanished father… toward mysteries that must be solved at any cost. But the nightmare that is awaiting Nate and his team of scientists and seasoned U.S. Rangers dwarfs any danger they anticipated… an ancient, unspoken terror – a power beyond human imagining – that can forever alter the world beyond the dark, lethal confines of Amazonia.
Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find the Earth burning. Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earthquakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America’s President on board. Now, with the U.S. on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his ocean-going exploration ship, Deep Fathom, on a desperate mission miles below the ocean’s surface. There devastating secrets await him – and a power an ancient civilization could not contain has been cast out into modern day. And it will forever alter a world that’s already racing toward its own destruction.
High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin’s nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward ends – in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis – something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous… something terrifying.
Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than seventy years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close – and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law. And now, as scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives, and unsuspecting civilians are drawn into Grendel’s lethal vortex, the most extreme measures possible will be undertaken to protect its dark mysteries – because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could end human life on Earth.
Beneath the ice at the bottom of the Earth is a magnificent subterranean labyrinth, a place of breathtaking wonders – and terrors beyond imagining. A team of specialists led by archaeologist Ashley Carter has been hand-picked to explore this secret place and to uncover the riches it holds. But they are not the first to venture here – and those they follow did not return. There are mysteries here older than time, and revelations that could change the world. But there are also things that should not be disturbed – and a devastating truth that could doom Ashley and the expedition: they are not alone.
Thanks for visiting, and good luck!
