Reviewer Giveaway - "Indigo Springs" by A.M. Dellamonica

As I mentioned yesterday in my Books Received posting, I have an extra copy of Indigo Springs by A.M Dellamonica that I am giving away. But here's the catch. Whoever wins the books needs to agree to write a guest review here at SciFiGuy about the book, That's it. I'll ship anywhere. Tell me why you'd like to review the book in the comments and I'll draw a winner this Friday (Nov. 13). Ah yes Friday the 13th!. Buwahaha! I'm really looking forward to this one myself.

Here's a synopsis of the book and a link to an excerpt of Chapter 1 of the novel.

Indigo Springs is a sleepy town where things seem pretty normal . . . until Astrid’s father dies and she moves into his house. She discovers that for many years her father had been accessing the magic that flowed, literally, in a blue stream beneath the earth, leaking into his house. When she starts to use the liquid "vitagua" to enchant everyday items, the results seem innocent enough: a “’chanted” watch becomes a charm that means you're always in the right place at the right time; a “’chanted” pendant enables the wearer to convince anyone of anything.

But as events in Indigo Springs unfold and the true potential of vitagua is revealed, Astrid and her friends unwittingly embark on a journey fraught with power, change, and a future too devastating to contemplate. Friends become enemies and enemies become friends as Astrid discovers secrets from her shrouded childhood that will lead her to a destiny stranger than she could have imagined . . .


  1. This sounds really intriguing - and fun to read your "leave your comment" comment - like water to a man or woman, or like enchanted water. I'd love to read it, and I've love to review it.

  2. I'd love to read and review 'Indigo Springs' because I am a sucker for a pretty cover - and this one is gorgeous! Plus, I read the first chapter on Dellamonica's website and now I need to know what happens next!

  3. I'd love to read (and review) this book because: 1. the cover looks great. 2. the story sounds even better.

  4. Hello! I am captivated by the title, and by the image of a magical deep blue underground stream. Anything that is too good true to be true will usually turn around and bite you where it hurts! Be careful what you wish for...

    P.S. Any new Haiku? : )

  5. I want to read this book because the concept sounds very unique and interesting. I'm always looking for new authors to love. Plus, the cover is beautiful.

    I don't write up nearly as in-depth reviews as yours, but I'd love the chance to have my voice heard. =)

  6. This comment has been removed by the author.

  7. I have to admit, from reading the synopsis, I wasn't sure I wanted to read the book, let alone review it. But, then I read the first chapter -- wow! Now I want to know what comes next (and yes, that nifty blue stream does bite back, evidence of which abounds in the excerpt, even if the stream itself hasn't made it's debut).

    Please consider me for the giveaway.

    Karen this book has had some great buzz. Funny how sometimes the blurbs don't do justice to the book.

    Abigail I would love to have you. Even if you don't win this one we should arrange for you to do a review!

    Taste in covers is a good thing Christine!

  11. I'm in for the challege as it sounds like nothing I read, and to be honest i'm wondering why i've never read anything like this to begin with. Sounds pretty good.

  12. Hi :)
    I'd love to review it if I win.
    All the best,

  13. I write a little bit about every book that I read, so it wouldn't be a hardship for me to promise to review a book.

    This one does look interesting.

  14. I'd like to read this book because the concept sounds very intriguing. I'd love to learn more about this mysterious blue stream, and I'd be honored to post a review on your site! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. Ooh, I'd love to enter!
    I'd like to read & review, because I think it sounds interesting, and I'm always looking for new books that I can review on the Book Bundle. I also have the more selfish reason of wanting to review because guest reviews give the blog more publicity!

  16. Enter me please. I'm always up for a book that involves magic. A guest review is no problem at all. I'd even promise not to use any four-letter words.

  17. I'd love to read and review "Indigo Springs" because it sounds like a pretty original idea, and those can be rare. Also, I'm always looking for great new authors!

  18. Natasha best of luck on this one.

    Abigail we'll talk soon about a guest review and book.

    Rob would love to have you here and you too Mardel. This is going to be hard.

    Thanks Kimberly would love to have you here too!

    gapyeargirl123 I'd be happy to give a little publicity to the guest reviewer.

    Hey Rebecca a good four letter word can be good for the soul.

    Best of luck Dan, thanks for entering.

  19. Oh well it was the title that first got me over, then I saw the cover, read the blurb and was intrigued. So I should review it cos well the title screamed for me
