With the series ending, I don't imagine those conversations will last too much longer (except for when noobs join the club, and have the series pressed into their hands...); I know there are a number of you out there who are big fans of the series, too, so I'm happy to share an excerpt of the final book with you today, as well as a chance to win a little something from the HON world!

from Redeemed by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast:
Kalona streaked across the billowing thunderclouds almost in time with the lightning. The storm’s winds buffeted him, but Kalona took no heed of it. He had one duty, one responsibility, one edict from his Goddess. He would protect the people in need. No matter the cost, he chose to stand between Neferet and those he had come to value, even to love.
Suddenly, the clouds before him began to boil and change form until Kalona was staring into the glowing eyes of the White Bull. His body was an enormous cloud, his horns dripping with a rain of blood.
Though it has been eons since last we met, you are as predictable now as you were then. The voice blasted through Kalona’s mind. What mutually beneficial deal shall we make this time, Kalona?
“None, bull. Last time we met I rejected you in words, but not in my heart, nor in my deeds. Last time we met I allowed your Darkness to feed that which was weak within me and poison my life. This time I am different. This time I reject you in words, in heart, and in deeds.”
Really, Son of the Moon? Would you still reject me if I told you I had the power to restore to you everything you lost during the eons you have wandered the mortal realm?
“There is nothing you can give me that would be worth the price.”
But you haven’t even heard my price. It would be so very little in comparison to that which you have lost…
To celebrate the release of the final (!) House of Night novel, I have one signed copy of a HON comic! (Kinda perfect timing, after graphic novel week, eh?) I love seeing how novels are adapted to comics, and this storyline, with it's appearing tattoos and what not, seems kinda perfect for that visual approach.
To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter below. US only, ends 10/27/14 at midnight. Good luck!

Find out who will win and who will lose in this epic battle of Light versus Darkness.
