Cecilia Ekback - Book Giveaway - Win Two signed Copies

This is the perfect read for winter, so turn up the central heating, wear a thick woolly jumper and fall under the magical spell of both  ‘Wolf Winter' & 'In The Month of the Midnight Sun'.  This giveaway is open worldwide and the winner will receive a copy of each book signed by the author herself. Keep them both for yourself or give to a friend with a personalised inscription. I have read both books and enjoyed both of them immensley and I am not kidding about the wolly jumper either, oh and a bar of chocolate would not go amiss. Good luck everyone and a huge thank you Cecilia for this fabulous giveaway.

There are six homesteads on Blackåsen Mountain.
A day's journey away lies the empty town. It comes to life just once, in winter, when the Church summons her people through the snows. Then, even the oldest enemies will gather.
But now it is summer, and new settlers are come.
It is their two young daughters who find the dead man, not half an hour's walk from their cottage.
The father is away. And whether stubborn, or stupid, or scared for her girls, the mother will not let it rest.
To the wife who is not concerned when her husband does not come home for three days; to the man who laughs when he hears his brother is dead; to the priest who doesn't care; she asks and asks her questions,digging at the secrets of the mountain.
They say a wolf made those wounds. But what wild animal cuts a body so clean?

An orphaned boy brought up to serve the state as a man. A rich young woman incapable of living by the conventions of society. Neither is prepared for the journey into the heat, mystery, violence and disorienting perpetual daylight of the far North.
Stockholm 1856.
Magnus is a geologist. When the Minister sends him to survey the distant but strategically vital Lapland region around Blackasen Mountain, it is a perfect cover for another mission: Magnus must investigate why one of the nomadic Sami people, native to the region, has apparently slaughtered in cold blood a priest, a law officer and a settler in their rectory.
Is there some bigger threat afoot? Blackasen seems to be a place of many secrets.
But the Minister has more than a professional tie to Magnus, and at the last moment, he adds another responsibility. Disgusted by the wayward behaviour of his daughter Lovisa - Magnus's sister-in law - the Minister demands that Magnus take her with him on his arduous journey.
Thus the two unlikely companions must venture out of the sophisticated city, up the coast and across country, to the rough-hewn religion and politics of the settler communities, the mystical, pre-Christian ways of the people who have always lived on this land, and the strange, compelling light of the midnight sun.
For Lovisa and Magnus, nothing can ever be the same again.
