Giving Away BREED by Chase Novak

[Update: Winner! Random Integer Generator selected commentor #3: Tori. Congrats!]


This week in the mail I received a copy of BREED by Chase Novak. Unfortunately, I don't read or review horror. So I'm giving it away. If you would like to read BREED, just leave a comment to this post and I'll draw one lucky winner.

To help you decide if you'd like this lovely hardcover (with a very soft, skin-like dust jacket), here's some more information about it:

"Breed is the best horror novel I've read since Peter Straub's Ghost Story. By turns terrifying and blackly funny, Breed is a total blast." -- Stephen King

Cover Copy: Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives-fabulous jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a passionate marriage. What they don't have is a child, and as they try one infertility treatment after the next, yearning turns into obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood come true, Alex and Leslie travel deep into Slovenia, where they submit to a painful and terrifying procedure that finally gives them what they so fervently desire . . . but with awful consequences.

Ten years later, cosseted and adored but living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night, with sounds coming from their parents' bedroom getting progressively louder, more violent, and more disturbing.

Driven to a desperate search for answers, Adam and Alice set out on a quest to learn the true nature of the man and woman who raised them. Their discovery will upend everything they thought they knew about their parents and will reveal a threat so horrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.
