Titans technically already had it’s cover reveal yesterday via RT Magazine but it’s making its rounds today with a giveaway. I’M featuring this young adult / urban fantasy because besides featuring mechanical horses (I got hooked on them in ever since I read Mechanica), this story is set on my home turf of Detroit. I’m a huge fan of reading books set in areas I’m familiar with.
I’m really looking forward to this one… just look at this cover!

Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.
She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.
But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about.
Here’s your chance to win a signed Titans poster and a pile of books!
