Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes Prologue & Five Book Giveaway)


Jennifer Lynn Barnes has a new book, Nobody, coming out January 22nd, 2013. The cover will be revealed here on August 16th along with other Texas bloggers. *tips hat* To get everyone ready for the reveal, I am thrilled to share the Prologue of Nobody and host an awesome giveaway!

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes Prologue

One week earlier . . .

Nine letters. Two words. He refused to think of them as a name. With detached objectivity, his steady hands set the thin white paper, with its evenly spaced black lettering, to the side.

He’d done this before.

One, Two, Three . . .

He’d do this again. More needles, more knives. More evenly spaced black letters that carved themselves, blood-red, into the recesses of his mind.

The only way you can make a difference in this world is to kill.

From the moment he’d opened the envelope and see the name, the pictures; from the moment he’d committed those nine letters to memory, the outcome had been a foregone conclusion. His target had been marked. Death was coming.

So be it.

  1. I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that the only one of these books I've read so far is Raised by Wolves. I really liked it, so I don't know what I'm waiting for! Nobody sounds especially good (and creepy). Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  3. I read Every Other Day when it was up on NG last year, and I was simply blown away by Barnes' writing style. I'd love to read the rest of her work, as I've heard the Raised by Wolves series is pretty awesome, as well. And now this new title sounds incredibly creepy and dark and I absolutely must read it. :) Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  4. AHHHH! This is the best giveaway ever. Like starryeyedjen, I read Every Other Day through NG last year and I thought it was completely fantastic. Since then, I have been so eager to read her other books. AND HERE THEY ARE! I am so curious about Nobody. It sounds so cool!

  36. My friend has been literally COMMANDING me to read these books, but I haven't been able to find them in a library and I don't have the money to buy any books at the moment. So, this giveaway is like a lifesaver. (maybe she'll stop yelling at me if I win, though she'll probably start questioning me until I finish the entire series and freak out with her). Thank you for this awesome giveaway and happy reading. (:
