Here is competition number 2 for the start of this month - fiction this time.

The Divine Sacrifice is a novel set in Arthurian times. An embittered ex soldier, Malgwyn ap Cuneglas (now there's a username for someone!), who has lost an limb in combat is now right hand man to Arthur (see what I did there ;-P ). A monk is killed and Arthur gets his mate Malgwyn to sort it out.

For a chance to win a copy of The Divine Sacrifice plus a copy of the book's predecessor The Killing Way, which has been reviewed on ARRSE. So 2 books for the price of one - and it's free!

Just go to Survey Monkey and fill in the ridiculously easy questions correctly and you will be in with a chance of winning this competition.

Thanks AG my books arrived this morning, did you realise that it was two books this time Wrecks?? :smooch:

Janner, in that case I succeeded twice by failing once..I think.

You failed to win, failed to notice it was for 2 books, you also failed to notice the possible magnitude of this failure, seems to be a bit of a thread going on here, or is this just a way of life you have come to accept?
Just remember the only way from the gutter is up, unless you find a drain?:rabbit:

Sumo, you failed to notice I said I failed deliberately hence my double failure was, in fact, a double success but I don't like to boast.
