Sorrow's Knot by Erin Bow: 250+ Book Giveaway! (USA/CAN)

Saturday, April 5, 2014
In the world of Sorrow’s Knot, the dead do not rest easy. Every patch of shadow might be home to something hungry and nearly invisible, something deadly. The dead can only be repelled or destroyed with magically knotted cords and yarns. The women who tie these knots are called binders.

Otter is the daughter of Willow, a binder of great power. She’s a proud and privileged girl who takes it for granted that she will be a binder some day herself. But when Willow’s power begins to turn inward and tear her apart, Otter finds herself trapped with a responsibility she’s not ready for, and a power she no longer wants.

Goodreads Summary

Author Bio/Links:

I'm a city girl from farm country who studied particle physics, before ditching science for a lucrative (ha!) career writing books. These days I write SFF novels for young adults, and poetry. 

My first novel, PLAIN KATE, was published in 2010 by Arthur A. Levine books at Scholastic in the United States, and by Scholastic Canada. It also came out as WOOD ANGEL from Chicken House in the UK. 

I've got a new novel, SORROW'S KNOT, coming out in October. 

I'm married to another YA author, James Bow. We have two girls, whose internet handles are Ninja Princess Scientist (she's seven) and The Owlet (she's five). We are massive geeks, mild activists, and very happy.
