Island Read-along and Union Release Contest

Posted January 11, 2017 by Emily in Events and Features, Special Feature / 3 Comments

I’ve never run or even really participated in a read a public read a long before. I’m really excited about this! We are going to have a #QWSush halfway through to discuss it. I really loved this book and this series. It sucks you in and gets better and better throughout the series.

What is this Readalong?

This is a month long readalong for The Island by S. Usher Evans, which is FREE. We’ll be reading 5 chapters a week (they aren’t that long really) in anticipation for the release of The Union, which is the trilogy finale, on February 14th.

What’s this about teams?

You absolutely do not have to participate in the teams but it’s highly encouraged! There are two teams, #TeamTheo and #TeamPrinceling based off of the two main characters in the books. I’m the team lead of #TeamTheo so I strongly encourage you to join that team. These two teams earn points by joining the readalong, tweeting, posting reviews and participating in other events we might have planned. The winning team will get some cool goodies and the top 2 point earners for each team will win an extra special prize!

You can join either team, but I’m #TeamTheo, so, I’m definitely biased.

The Thing I like best about this Street Team Contest is that every week has a different focus. This week we are focusing on joining the contest and gaining members. Whoever has the most members at the end of the week (#TeamTheo or #TeamPrinceling) will get some fabulous swag. Join us! It should be fun!

Check out this post for more information about the Street Team Competition.

Prince Galian is third in line to the throne, but prefers his place as a resident at the Royal Kylaen Hospital. When his father urges him to join the military to help reclaim their colony, Galian is forced to put aside his oath to Do No Harm and fight a war he does not believe in.
Across the great Madion Sea, Captain Theo Kallistrate dreams of a day when she is no longer bound by conscription to fight for her country's independence. But when the Kylaens threaten, honor and duty call her to the front lines to fight off the oppressors.
When an air skirmish goes wrong, both Theo and Galian crash on a remote island hundreds of miles from either nation. Grievously injured, Theo must rely on Galian's medical expertise, and Galian must rely on Theo's survival skills, to live another day in a harsh and unforgiving terrain.
Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive? Or will the war that brought them to the island tear them apart?
The Island is the first in a new romance trilogy by S. Usher Evans, author of the Razia series and Empath.
