First of the Month Book Giveaway

This month, it is my pleasure to bring you debut author, Cole Gibson by giving away her novel Katana. 

Do you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Do you like Kill Bill? Then you will like this book:

"Kill Bill meets Buffy in this supernatural samurai tale.
Rileigh Martin would love to believe that adrenaline gave her the uncanny courage and strength to fend off three muggers. But it doesn’t explain her dreams of fifteenth-century Japan, the incredible fighting skills she suddenly possesses, or the strange voice giving her battle tips and danger warnings. While worrying that she’s going crazy (always a reputation ruiner), Rileigh gets a visit from Kim, a handsome martial arts instructor, who tells Rileigh she’s harboring the spirit of a five-hundred-year-old samurai warrior.

Relentlessly attacked by ninjas, Rileigh has no choice but to master the katana—a deadly Japanese sword that’s also the key to her past. As the spirit grows stronger and her feelings for Kim intensify, Rileigh is torn between continuing as the girl she’s always been and embracing the warrior inside her.
"Fans of Carrie Asai's Samurai Girl series (Simon & Schuster) will be particularly interested, but even readers who dislike supernatural story lines will enjoy this tale of modern samurais."—SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"An action-packed page-turner tempered with slow-burning romance."—BOOKLIST"--From the Barnes and Noble website.

  1. Yay, first person to post! I've been dying to read this book. See you soon!

  2. I was very fascinated by the whole 'Buffy and samurai' thing. I admit, I usually kind of hate female protagonists, as they tend to be too whiny, self-centered and not so smart, but this doesn't seem the case!
    Would love to know how this heroine was born, how Cole created her!
