Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

I'm Suzanne Lazear, come, have a cupcake.  
 You're currently hopping with...
Lost?  Stuck? Confused? Go here.  

If you have no idea what's going on, this page is part of a giant scavenger hunt where, not only do you get access to exclusive content from YA authors, but if up the clues, and you can enter for our prize -- one lucky winner will receive TWENTY signed books, one book from each participating author on my team. I'm on the YELLOW team, but you can also follow the red and blue teams, for a chance to win their prizes as well.  Also, lots of authors are hosting their own contests, so there's tons of chances to win stuff.  (You might have to click "read more" to see the rafflecopter form to enter my personal giveaway since it's at the bottom.) But the hunt and content only last 72 hours.  Go here for details and where to start.

I am hosting the super fabulous  Bree Despain(If you're looking for my bonus content, a sneak peek at the boys of INNOCENT DARKNESS, keep hopping, because it's not here.) 

Here's Bree's Bio:
Bree Despain is the author of the Dark Divine trilogy. Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, two young sons, and her beloved TiVo.  All three books in the trilogy, THE DARK DIVINE, THE LOST SAINT, and THE SAVAGE GRACE are now available.

In the hunt she's featuring her book THE SAVAGE GRACE:

A troubled soul. An impossible choice. A final battle.

Wrestling with the werewolf curse pulsing deep inside of her, Grace Divine was finally able to find her brother, but it nearly cost her everything.

With her boyfriend, Daniel, stuck in wolf form and Sirhan's death approaching, time is running out for Grace to stop Caleb Kalbi and his gang of demons. If she fails, her family and hometown will perish. Everything rests on Grace's shoulders.

The final installment in The Dark Divine trilogy brings Daniel and Grace's love story to a breathtaking conclusion.


Wow.  You can order THE SAVAGE GRACE here.
And now, what you've all been waiting for...more cupcakes.  Um, I mean, Bree's bonus content.

~~~~The scavenger hunt is over and Bree's content has been taken down. Thanks for playing!~~~~


 
For more info on Bree and her books please check out her website.
Now, for the prizes.  Hidden within the post is a single letter that is yellow. It's part of a scrambled phrase. Once you go to all the author sites of the yellow team, you'll have all the letters you need to complete the puzzle and enter the contest.


Entry Form: Once you piece together all the clues to the hunt, make sure you fill out the form HERE to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the completed phrase will qualify.

Thank you so much for visiting. And now, to go to the next site on the hunt, click here to visit Rae Hachton.  Why don't you bring her a cupcake?

 
Before you leave, you can enter to win something special here, too.  Noli, my main character, has a special necklace, which V gave her. You can win one, or a book from my stash of awesome along with some INNOCENT DARKNESS swag.

Lea said...

I think that alternate endings are awesome and so interesting to see what else the author was thinking of when she wrote the book-- BUT I did not read it because I am meaning to read Bree's series in the near future and I don't want any of the plot to be spoiled! :)

Stéphanie said...

I haven't read her book yet, so I didn't read her bonus material yet. I will have to keep in mind of the alternate ending once I read the book.

cvelazquez said...

I LOVED LOVED LOVED the bonus content. I started this series just 2 months ago (currently reading Savage Grace) and fell in love with it!! It was very interesting to get Jude's thoughts...as there hasn't been much of him in Savage Grace yet. Pretty interested to see where it goes.

Devan @ Book Strings said...

Alia said...

So cool!

Lilian said...

Admittedly, this excepr t feel a bit short for me. I wanted a bit more action...maybe it's because I haven't read the series, but I am bracing myself for the white wolf suddenly turning against the girl. And if he is twenty times as big as the last dog...how big is he exactly? eight feet tall?

many questions...all the more reasons to read the novel~

Thank you for participating in the YASH and the juicy exclusive content! I'm having loads of fun!

To be honest, I've never read any of Bree's books before, and when I read the bonus content I didn't find much that made me want to read further, unfortunately. :c

Mara80 said...

kristiyerian@yahoo.com

~Enamored Soul~ said...

Wow,

I absolutely loved the bonus content. Getting such privileged information before the actual release of the book is like getting a peek at the treasure, but not be able to touch it...which makes you want it THAT much more! LOVED IT! :) Thank you for this opportunity! :D

JennH said...

I loved the extra content! Now I really can't wait to read it :D

missymoo-09 said...

i loved the bonus content. i'm dying to read it.

Carley L. said...

I'm not familiar with Bree's work, but I read the alternate ending because I'm one of those people who like to read the last few pages first, even if it's an alternate ending. It let me check out her style of writing and she's definitely on authors to read list.

Krazzyme(Young Readers) said...

Hmm... I really should pick up one of her books :)

mromero said...

I loved the bonus content, it's always nice visiting the author's world.

megaavidreader said...

It is less than six minutes from one am, and honestly, as strange as it sounds, it calmed me. I have a close relationship with someone in the CCU, so I've been in a horrible place all day. Almost done with the hunt! Thank you so much!

Anonymous said...

Its awesome thanks!

Joanna said...

I've read The Dark Divine and enjoy it. Now, having read the exclusive content offered here makes me want to want to get my hands of The Lost Saint, so I can later complete the trilogy. =D

Rae Hachton said...

Hey! Your book sounds awesome, can't wait to read. I absolutely love Steampunk! Thanks for sending Virtual Cupcakes my way! Cheers!

Baggins said...

I'm very sad to say that I have yet to read Bree's series...I definitely plan to, they sound awesome! But as I'm a spoilerphobic, I didn't read the bonus material! That there's an alternate ending is very intriguing and so I'll be keeping that in mind when I read the series!

Thanks for sharing, and for the awesome giveaway!!

Rebecca Major said...

I loved the bonus content... but I need to re-read the first two books in the trilogy to get the full impact of it I think. :)

LeighLou said...

Hi thanks for doing the hunt and for the extra giveaway. Bree's bonus content makes me want to go and read her series. LeighLou3@gmail.com

Bree's contest really made me happy. :) Thanks for the contest! ^^

Gabbie said...

I like having the choice to choose a different path for the story to go down so I really loved the alternate ending :)

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I haven't read the bonus material cause I really want to read the books and I don't want to spoil them! Just dying to get my hands on these books!

Kris said...

I LOVED the exclusive content and now I'm really dying to get the last book! :(

Christina2227 said...

Her books are my (entirely too long, yet continuously growing) TBR list. The bonus material didn't make much sense to me, but I guess I'd need to know the characters/plot better, wouldn't I? If anything, it was good enough for me to move the books up the list.

Thanks for hosting this additional giveaway and for participating in the SYASH. :)

~Christina

Nikki said...

I have read all the books and love them so I really liked it! I thought it was really interesting and cool!
