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.

"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
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!
