It’s finally happened; today I turn 27 years old.
Why do I say ‘finally’? Two reasons. Firstly because I’ve thought I was 27 all year long so it’s rather surprising that I’m not actually turning 28 this year (a extra year of life!), and secondly, I’m not longer in my mid-20s. I finally have to start saying I’m in my late 20s. Yikes.
But you know what? That’s life. Can’t avoid it. So to celebrate my birthday I’m doing a little giveaway! Surprise surprise! Last month I won 6 great books from Bloomsbury Australia, which I was super excited about. But one of the books I have a) already read and really enjoyed, and b) already own a copy of. That’s fine; it means I can give it away! Fantastic!

Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall.

It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.
