So, we’re issuing a cover reveal challenge over at Suvudu, the site for sci-fi and fantasy fans hosted by Del Rey Books (Random House). It goes live today, November 19th at 10 a.m. Eastern.
To see the cover, you’ll have to pass a test of wit and skill: solve the 12-piece puzzle that reveals the image hidden beneath it. On my first attempt, it took me around ten minutes. If you’re feeling ambitious, tackle the hard version (20 pieces), which took me half an hour.
I challenge you to do better than that!
So many things are at stake here: your self-esteem, which will be slowly mocked by the running timer, as well as your reputation in the puzzle solving community. So I’ll make this interesting: two of today’s challengers will win a $15 Amazon gift card and a free copy of The Rogue Retrieval.
All you have to do is engage the Rafflecopter widget you’ll find below the puzzle. Doing so will not only enter you to win a prize, but will also help us spread the word. Are you ready? Take the challenge.
Prize Information: The winners will be randomly selected via Rafflecopter. Prizes will be delivered by e-mail. The free book will be an advanced review copy in digital format, and will be sent when the ARCs become available in December.
About The Rogue Retrieval
Sleight of hand…in another land
Stage magician Quinn Bradley has one dream: to headline his own show on the Vegas Strip. And with talent scouts in the audience wowed by his latest performance, he knows he’s about to make the big-time. What he doesn’t expect is an offer to go on a quest to a place where magic is all too real.
That’s how he finds himself in Alissia, a world connected to ours by a secret portal owned by a powerful corporation. He’s after an employee who has gone rogue, and that’s the least of his problems. Alissia has true magicians…and the penalty for impersonating one is death. In a world where even a twelve-year-old could beat Quinn in a swordfight, it’s only a matter of time until the tricks up his sleeves run out.
Fans of Terry Brooks and Terry Pratchett will find this a thrilling read!
