Alexa at Not Enough Bookshelves reviews RAMPANT (spoiler -free) and even gives away a free signed copy she snagged last weekend! She says, in part:
Although the plot of Rampant is intriguing and fast paced what really lifts the book to my favourites shelf is narrator, heroine, and reluctant unicorn hunter, Astrid. She’s such a great character, strong, smart and funny but also vulnerable and confused. I loved her emotional growth and her struggle to reconcile her hunter abilities with the life she wants. And, of course, I loved her romance with Giovanni, Diana writes such good boys and such good kissing scenes.
So drop by Alexa’s blog and enter for your chance to win a free copy! (Since I know the only reason you may not have run out to buy your own already is budgetary concerns.)
Thus begins the adventure in Peterfreund’s Rampant. A bit Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a bit Roman Holiday and yet very much it’s own unique creation, Rampant leads it’s readers on a journey into another land. The city of Rome is it’s own character in the novel, along with girls from around the world who gather there to train to do battle against the reemergent Unicorns. As for Alexander the Great, you’ll just have to read the book to see how he fits in. You won’t regret it. Rampant is the best new YA book I’ve read this year.

In other news, TempDog#3 came and went so fast I didn’t even get a chance to take pictures of her! I’m picking up TempDog#4 today, who will be a little bit more of a challenge than the others, I think, owing to the fact that he’s a…puppy. Gulp. Wish me luck, people.
