"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." —J. R. R. Tolkien

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


I was lucky enough to meet one of the authors of this book at BEA this past May, and in addition to being a fantastic author, he's also an editor. In case you missed the first book in this series, ANOTHER FAUST, you'll for sure want to pick it up (it has a cover to-die-for)!
Up for giveaway this week is an ARC of

ANOTHER PAN by Daniel and Dina Nayeri (Candlewick, Sept. 2010)

From Amazon:

Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling and her insecure freshman brother, John, are hitting the books at the Marlowe School. But one tome consumes their attention: THE BOOK OF GATES, a coveted Egyptian artifact that their professor father believes has magical powers. Soon Wendy and John discover that the legend is real—when they recite from its pages and descend into a snaking realm beneath the Manhattan school. As the hallways darken, and dead moths cake the floor, a charismatic new R.A. named Peter reveals that their actions have unleashed a terrible consequence: the underworld and all its evil is now seeping into Marlowe. Daniel Nayeri and Dina Nayeri return to reimagine Peter Pan as a twisty, atmospheric, and fast-paced fantasy about the perils of immortality.
