GIVEAWAY of 2 books: Quarantine: The Loners and Quarantine: The Saints

I just posted my review of these two books, and now, I have a GIVEAWAY opportunity!   The publisher has generously offered both of these books as a giveaway, so I'm going to make this really easy:   To be entered into my drawing for a paperback copy of Quarantine: The Loners and one hardcover copy of Quarantine: The Saints, all you need to do is leave a comment about the books (and please include your email address).   That's it -- I'll run a randomizer to choose a winner, and contact that person via email (and then provide their info to the publisher, who will send the books).

The giveaway ends on Friday, July 19th @ midnight (CDT

Sorry, this giveaway is U.S. only.

Here are the summaries of the 2 books (courtesy of Goodreads):

Quarantine: The Loners ---It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High—until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.

A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you’re as good as dead. And David has no gang. It’s just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school.

In this frighteningly dark and captivating novel, Lex Thomas locks readers inside a school where kids don’t fight to be popular, they fight to stay alive.



Quarantine: The Saints --- Nothing was worse than being locked in—until they opened the door...
McKinley High has been a battle ground for eighteen months since a virus outbreak led to a military quarantine of the school. When the doors finally open, Will and Lucy will think their nightmare is finished. But they are gravely mistaken.

As a new group of teens enters the school and gains popularity, Will and Lucy join new gangs. An epic party on the quad full of real food and drinks, where kids hookup and actually interact with members of other gangs seemed to signal a new, easier existence. Soom after though, the world inside McKinley takes a startling turn for the worse, and Will and Lucy will have to fight harder than ever to survive.

Also -- From June 24th - July 22nd, QUARANTINE: THE LONERS (book 1) is on sale for $1.99 as an ebook.

I think Quarantine: The Loners sounds really good. It has vampire elements (not actual vampires, but the seclusion from society and warring cliques) and a dystopian-type setting. I don't quite understand the plot of Quarantine: The Saints, but...I guess I need to read it!
