Today is the official publication day for The Shattered Vine by Laura Anne Gilman
“The final volume of Gilman’s Vineart War trilogy is both compulsively readable and full of complicated characterization… The constraints of Jerzy’s world become apparent as the story builds to a climax, which is both unexpected and utter perfection.” — Romantic Times, 4 1/2 Stars
“With a unique, pleasingly consistent magic system based on the production and consumption of wine, urban fantasist Gilman (the Retrievers series) turns a standard coming-of-age tale into something wholly new. The tale is dominated by vivid, absorbing characters, and Jerzy’s powerful narrative voice makes his joys and sorrows dramatic, authentic and potent. This intoxicating high fantasy will satisfy oenophiles and bibliophiles alike.” – Publishers Weekly [starred review] on Flesh and Fire

If not for the author of this series, I would have forever sworn off shiraz. (Still proudly ABC.) In celebration of all three books being available, I’m offering a set of hardcovers. Here’s what to do:
Comment on this post about your favorite varietal of wine (why is optional but feel free to share details including best glass of wine ever, best winebar ever, etc.).
If you’re not a wine drinker, just say why (for example: teetotaler, allergy, more of a beer person etc.).
Contest runs from now until Friday, October 21st, 5pm Eastern Time. One comment entry per person. For an extra entry, tweet a link to the contest with #Vineart hashtag. Winner will be randomly selected by moi.
