It's that time of year again! Time for the Snowed In? So Read! Giveaway Hop hosted by Stuck in Books!

I'm giving away an ARC of Julia Vanishes by Catherine Egan!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


The stunning first book in an exciting new fantasy trilogy!

Murder, thievery, witchcraft, and betrayal—who could resist?

Julia has the unusual ability to be…unseen. Not invisible, exactly. Just beyond most people’s senses.

It’s a dangerous trait in a city that has banned all forms of magic and drowns witches in public Cleansings. But it’s a useful trait for a thief and a spy. And Julia has learned—crime pays.

Her latest job is paying very well indeed. Julia is posing as a housemaid in the grand house of Mrs. Och, where an odd assortment of characters live and work: A disgraced professor who sends her to fetch parcels containing bullets, spiders, and poison. An aristocratic houseguest who is locked in the basement each night. And a mysterious young woman who is clearly in hiding—though from what or whom?

Worse, Julia suspects that there’s a connection between these people and the killer leaving a trail of bodies across the frozen city.

The more she learns, the more she wants to be done with this unnatural job. To go back to the safety of her friends and fellow thieves. But Julia is entangled in a struggle between forces more powerful than she’d ever imagined. Escape will come at a terrible price.

One that will she will be paying over this book and the two to follow.

Author Bio:

I grew up in Vancouver, Canada – a beautiful city nobody in her right mind would ever leave, but leave I did, and you may draw the obvious conclusions about my mind. Since then, I have lived on a wee volcanic island in Japan (which erupted during my time there and sent me hurtling straight into the arms of my now-husband), Tokyo, Kyoto, Beijing, an oil rig in the middle of China’s Bohai Bay, New Jersey, and now Connecticut, where I write books and defend the Eastern seaboard from invading dragon hordes alongside my intrepid warrior-children.
