Sarah Jane Stratford’s The Midnight Guardian Giveaway!

The Midnight Guardian by Sarah Jane StratfordGreat news for fans of Sarah Jane Stratford, paranormal fiction, and the Millennial series. St. Martin’s Griffin, the publisher behind Stratford’s latest book, The Midnight Guardian, is giving away free copies!

We’ll be randomly selecting a total of fifteen commenters, five from this blog post, five retweeters, and five commenters from Facebook in the next 48 hours. (Until 3 PM EST on Thursday.)

The Midnight Guardian takes place in 1938 in the midst of World War II. Hitler’s tentacles have commenced their stranglehold on Europe and the Nazi empire will soon be purged of all “tainted” bloodlines…including vampires.

London’s ancient tribunal of vampires is aghast at the destruction taking place on the Continent and resolves to send its five most formidable vampires— immensely powerful “millennials” who have lived more than a thousand years— to infiltrate and destroy the Nazis. Brilliant and beautiful millennial Brigit is loath to go, for it means leaving behind her vampire lover Eamon, whom she made eight centuries ago. But go she must; her powers are needed if the mission is to have any chance of success.

You can also read an excerpt from the first two chapters here on Tor.com.

I like 'period' pieces that have scifi and fantasy in them. They are different 'reads' than those current-day or future novels are.

For some reason I have seen a resurgence of WWII mentions in paranormal fiction recently. Not a bad thing. I like seeing the differing takes on what happend and why and the results. This one goes on my 'to read list', thank you.

I liked the sample chapters given it was enough to get me interested but not enough to give too much away of the story. I hope I get one of the free copies !

Interesting twist. Alternate history seems to be a popular way to go these days.

Read it. Loved it. While vampires are all the rage, this book really looks at their creations, the relationships the vampires have built and what they mean to each other and not all of it is the thigns of teenage dreams. It was an amazing read and hopefully Ill be reading it again soon :)

I loved reading the story of Brigit and the other vampires. The history in this is excellent regarding world war II. This is the first vampire novel I have read that is a historical fiction combining both fantasy and history to make a compelling story and good read. I am waiting for more from Sara Jane Stratford.

"The Midnight Guardian takes place in 1938, in the midst of World War II." Really? In this universe, World War II began with the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939. Is Ms. Stratford writing of an alternate universe, with a different timeline? Or is somebody being a little sloppy with their dates?
