5 Arabella of Mars Quotes + Giveaway!
Today I’m excited to be a part of the blog tour for Arabella of Mars by David D. Levine! Arabella of Mars is out now and got a glowing review from Jim C. Hines, which I why I’m pretty sure it must be good ;-). Here are five quotes from Arabella of Mars to give you an idea what to expect and don’t miss the US/CAN giveaway at the bottom!
1. “Beneath the fur-trimmed leather of her thukhong, her heart beat a fast tattoo, racing not only from the exertion of her rush to the top of this dune but from the exhilaration of delicious anticipation. For this, she was certain, was the night she would finally defeat her brother in the game of shorosh khe kushura, or Hound and Hare.”
2. “The best young men England had to offer were, it seemed, barely comparable to her most ordinary acquaintances on Mars, and could not begin to hold a candle to her brother. Vapid empty-headed dandies the lot of them, knowing nothing of any thing beyond horses and hunting, lacking in any spirit of adventure, and completely uninterested in automata, astronomy, or any other thing of importance.”
3. “‘There’s no sinking a ship in the air,’ Gosling declaimed, stabbing the air with his finger. ‘No battle is over until every man on one ship or t’other’s dead or captured.’”
4. “Arabella had expected the planet to resemble a map, with continents and oceans easily distinguished, though she knew not to expect to see national boundaries. What she saw instead looked more like a huge, rounded globe of decorative glass, the blue of oceans swirled with white sweeps and streaks of cloud, the sun’s light winking brightly off the clouds and sea so very far below.”
5. “Some day, Arabella thought, perhaps she might take passage on such a ship. To sail the air, and see the asteroids, and visit the swamps of Venus would be a grand adventure indeed. But to be sure, no matter how far she traveled she would always return to her beloved Woodthrush Woods.”
I’m very happy to get to give one copy of Arabella of Mars to a US or Canadian address as per Tor’s policies. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email and I’ll be checking entries so be sure the info is correct.
