Giveaway for Blood Hound by James Osiris Baldwin

Howdy! It's Karen with another giveaway from INDIE Books Gone Wild. I have the first book in the Hound of Eden series, a rather intriguing blend of mafia fiction with magic. I did the line editing and Eliza did the proofreading for this book.

Title: Blood Hound (Alexi Sokolsky: Hound of Eden) 
Author: James Osiris Baldwin
Genre: Fantasy (urban fantasy)
Length: 339 pages
Buy Link: Amazon

"One of the first things every new mage learns about magic is that—despite your newly discovered powers over the universe—you are forever a struggling speck of krill in a very large, very cold, very dangerous ocean."

Alexi Sokolsky is a spook, a hitman who uses his magical talents to help him in the hunt. However, his place in the Yaroschenko Organisatiziya - the Russian Mafiya that has dominated New York since the 1960s - is more than tenuous. Socially ostracized and on the wrong side of a power struggle between the old gangsters and the new, Alexi accepts a job that he hopes will gain him enough respect to survive the dog-eat-dog world of criminal politics... a job which drags him straight into the fight over a fruit from the garden of Eden, a humanoid being known as a Gift Horse.

The Gift Horse's flesh could make a world-changing monster out of any mage, and Alexi's opponents - an immensely powerful maverick from the Italian Mob and an unknown psychopath with the ability to summon demons - both know it. Alexi must decide whether he will answer the Gift Horse's call to become the cure for the sickness attacking his world, or if he is part of the disease that will destroy it.

The first installment in the Hound of Eden series, Blood Hound is the story of Alexi Sokolsky, a wizard and hitman for the Russian Mafia who is drawn into the cosmic war between a universal lifeform known as GOD and the Morphorde, the cancerous viral entity trying to destroy it. 


Two Kindle eBook copies of the book are up for grabs (two separate winners). Here's the giveaway entry form! Good luck!
