LOVE IS RED: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LOVE IS RED
  BY SOPHIE JAFF
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Redefining the thriller's tale of the hunter and the hunted, This electrifying, hypnotically beautiful debut spins dark suspense and literary fantasy into a mesmerizing story of survival.

Katherine Emerson was born to fulfill a dark prophecy centuries in the making, but she doesn't know it yet. However, one man does: a killer stalking the women of New York City, a monster the media dubs the "Sickle Man" because of the weapon he uses to turn his victims' bodies into canvases for his twisted art. People think he's the next Son of Sam, but we know how he thinks and how he feels . . . and discover that he is driven by darker, much more dangerous desires than we can bear to imagine. He takes more than just his victims' lives, and each death brings him closer to the one woman he must possess at any cost.

Amid the city's escalating hysteria, Katherine is trying to unknot her tangled heart. Two very different men have entered her previously uneventful world—handsome and personable David, alluring yet aloof Sael—and turned it upside down. She finds herself involved in a complicated triangle . . . but how well does she really know either of them?

Told from the alternating viewpoints of Katherine and the Sickle Man, Sophie Jaff's intoxicating narrative will pull you in and hold you close. As the body count rises, Katherine is haunted by harrowing visions that force her to question her sanity. All she wants is to find love. He just wants to find her.

Ablaze with fear, mystery, and possibility, Love Is Red is the first book in the Night Song trilogy. With this unforgettable novel—one that combines the literary and the supernatural, fantasy and horror, the past and the present—Katherine's moment of awakening is here. And her story is only just beginning.

PRAISE FOR LOVE IS RED AND SOPHIE JAFF:
“Intelligent, poetic, captivating and chilling…. The mystery at the core of Love is Red is so gripping you will find yourself carrying the book around with you until you’re done.… You will want to re-read it as soon as you’re finished.” — Elizabeth Haynes, New York Times bestselling author of Into The Darkest Corner and Under A Silent Moon

“The writing in this debut thriller is evocative and, simply put, gorgeous. Jaff does an amazing job at conveying all five senses at every moment…. The lush language and intricately fleshed-out characters make this a series—and author — to watch.” — RT Book Reviews (online)

“Love is Red is a tornado of a novel. Jaff twists through so many suspenseful places. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, but I wanted to linger, too. This is seriously scary stuff, offered up in high style and with wild narrative invention.” — Laura Kasischke, nationally bestselling author of Mind of Winter and The Raising

“The excitement (and there’s plenty of it) comes from the serial killer’s creepy, second-person accounts of his moves and from watching the cat-and-mouse game with Katherine.… Frightening.” — Booklist
