Terry Brooks Winner

The random number generator has done its thing, and the winner is one of my wonderful blogging buddies...

Michael Pierce!

Congrats, Michael! Michael selected Running with the Demon, which is a fantastic choice (not that there is a right or wrong choice with Terry Brooks, of course). Just email me your address, Michael, and I will send it off to you straightaway.

And for interest's sake, here is a synopsis of Running with the Demon from from Goodreads:

Nest Freemark has always been able to see feeders, creatures that feed on the darker side of human emotions. As a result, she has been enlisted to help guard the Sinissippi National Forest in Hopewell, Illinois, a place where magical creatures such as Pick, a sylvan, and Wraith, a ghost-wolf, still live. 

John Ross, a Knight of the Word, has sworn to serve the Lady, the voice of the Word, in the eternal battle against the forces of the Void. Every night, he dreams of what will become of the world if he should fail. John carries a staff that has the power to destroy demons and their ilk, but he is growing weary; he has spent his entire life fighting demons and doesn't have much to show for it. John's dreams send him to Hopewell, where he meets Nest. 

Unbeknownst to Nest, a demon also appears in Hopewell. His goal is the release an evil creature trapped in the forest. As the lives of these three characters entertwine, the fate of the world hangs in the balance. 

This novel, the first in Terry Brooks's Word and Void trilogy, combines our world with a world of demons and magic, and thrusts ordinary people into a fight as old as time itself.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest!
