Eclipse the Moon ARC Giveaway!

Want to read ECLIPSE THE MOON before July 12? Enter for a chance to win one of three ARCs! www.jessiemihalik.com/blog

I’ve finally finished writing the third book in the Starlight’s Shadow series, so it’s time to celebrate with a giveaway! 🎉

Eclipse the Moon, the second book in the series, releases in less than five weeks on July 12, but you can enter for a chance to read it even sooner! Keep reading for details. :)

Eclipse the Moon cover, featuring a man and woman in silhouette in front of a purple background with an alien planet.

As a reminder, I’ve partnered with BookPeople to offer signed copies of ETM (plus backlist books!!), so if that’s something that interests you, get your orders in now because a lot of my previous books are on backorder with a 7-10 day lead time.

And I was too braindead during the last blog post to mention it, but the first fifty-ish ETM preorders from BookPeople will come with a bookmark and stickers! The bookmark is the same one from the HTS release, but the stickers are different. :)

Acclaimed author Jessie Mihalik returns with an exciting new novel about a rainbow-haired female bounty hunter tasked with preventing an interstellar war.

Kee Ildez has been many things: hacker, soldier, bounty hunter. She never expected to be a hero, but when a shadowy group of traitors starts trying to goad the galaxy’s two superpowers into instigating an interstellar war, Kee throws herself into the search to find out who is responsible—and stop them.

Digging up hidden information is her job, so hunting traitors should be a piece of cake, but the primary suspect spent years in the military, and someone powerful is still covering his tracks. Disrupting their plans will require the help of her entire team, including Varro Runkow, a Valovian weapons expert who makes her pulse race.

Quiet, grumpy, and incredibly handsome, Varro watches her with hot eyes but ignores all of her flirting, so Kee silently vows to keep her feelings strictly platonic. But that vow will be put to the test when she and Varro are forced to leave the safety of their ship and venture into enemy territory alone.

Cut off from the rest of their team, they must figure out how to work together—and fast—because a single misstep will cost thousands of lives.

Read the first chapter!

  1. I’m currently enjoying playing Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically the side quests. Also just jumping of mountains and sailing around to avoid enemies is fantastic.

  2. I really enjoyed rereading comfort fiction recently. Lots of you, Ilona Andrew’s, and the Scholomance series getting ready for the conclusion of the trilogy.

  3. I have been very much enjoying the current UK series of Taskmaster. There’s just something so satisfyingly absurd about it.

  4. SUZANNE B ROTHCHILD

    Since childhood I have been a voracious reader. I am currrently re-reading Ilona Andrews’ Hidden Legacy in preparation for their new release RUBY FEVER. I have been living vicariously through my friends’ dogs and their videos, all the while dearly missing my fur-kid who crossed the Bridge in December 2020.

  5. I finally had a moment to sit at my sewing machine again and create a new little drawstring bag from some beautiful blue ombre fabric that reminds me of a starry nighttime sky.

  6. Jenn Stark released a new first book for her Immortal Vegas series, and I’ve shamelessly used this as an excuse to re-read all of the IM books and the sequel series Wilde Justice. It’s a lengthy endeavor so I’ve stalled and stalled for years, but the new book rocked and I’ve always wanted to read them a little slower to enjoy more details as opposed to gobbling them up in three hours 🙈 so I’m enjoying finally going through them all again

  7. Recently I got really into the alternate universe space drama For All Mankind after I activated a six month AppleTV+ subscription that came with my PlayStation 5, and now I’m re-watching after having only just watched it for the first time like a week or two ago because season three is around the corner. It’s just so good, and I’m hyped for more in just a few more (damned) hours.

  8. I just found Stardew Valley and have been getting to play with family members on other continents – we live almost as far away as you can get for the next couple of years (although not quite as far as we would if we were in another galaxy!) So I also love getting to play with family.

  9. I have been enjoying the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series by C. S. Harris. It is a great mix of spy/political thriller and murder mystery with interesting characters.

  10. The Psy-changeling series! I read 18 books from this series last month and regret nothing. The books just keep getting better.

  11. Just finished reading *Lessons In Chemistry* by Bonnie Garmus. Flew through the book, it’s been awhile since I enjoyed a book that much. At least until your next one is released.

  12. I’ve been re-reading Ilona Andrews Innkeeper series while waiting for the next book in your Starlight’s Shadow series. It’s fantastic!

  13. I’ve really enjoyed finally getting to take my kiddos to their first theme park! With the past few years being a mess I’ve put it off but finally a chance came up and we all had a blast!

  14. I have to say that I am finding joy from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. It’s taking me back to my classic Star Wars lobe! I love the new Star Wars “stuff” like The Mandalorian, and I am an Ahsoka fan, but this is rocking my Star Wars roots.

  15. I’ve recently retired and am enjoying doing absolutely nothing and anything I want to do. Quilted a puff baby blanket for an upcoming birth.

  16. I really enjoyed going to Star Wars Celebration a couple weeks back! It was such a fun environment to be in and I’m excited to see what Lucasfilm has coming next.

  17. I’m enjoying self care in the form of re-watching my comfort shows (psych and community) and reading romance novels.
    Thank you for the chance! Can’t wait to read this!

  18. Recently I’ve been enjoying getting back into my hobbies like crocheting! I have been learning how to make crocheted shirts and sweaters!

  19. I’ve really been enjoying the start of my photography traineeship! The offer came out of the blue and has led to some really incredible learning opportunities. I even get to fly a drone (and haven’t crashed it yet 😉)!

  20. Finally got a vacation after almost two and a half years. Went to Seattle for the first time and got to enjoy Mt. Rainier National Park . Also got to spend a few days in one of my favourite cities, New York, and enjoy some Broadway and good food. Luckily was able to do lots of reading while waiting to travel again 😀

  21. I’ve been enjoying a 2 week break from volunteer and extra responsibilities! It’s been great going on extra dog walks and reading!

  22. I don’t know if I enjoyed it, exactly, but I was recently awed by reading Rebecca Solnit’s Call Them by Their True Names. What brought me joy today was hearing my kiddo’s violin lesson. This musician mama is proud as can be!

  23. I have been enjoying the longer days of sunlight and the spring weather. I love being outside with my dogs and the weather is perfect for that right now.

  24. My boyfriend and I have been watching It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, me for the first time, and it’s pretty great.

  25. I just discovered Michele Notaro’s Magi Accounts series, and I can’t wait for the rest of the series! 2 books are out (plus one Magi Accounts companion novella) Fast-paced MM urban fantasy featuring great characters, magi and shifters, cool magic system, and wonderful found family. (Pls note: intended for adults, check trigger warnings before reading)

    Thanks for the chance to enter the ARC giveaway!

  26. I really enjoyed Our Flag Means Death recently (not the finishing part, more please!) I am loving Charlie Jane Anders’ Unstoppable series, having finished Victories Greater Than Death and started Dreams Bigger Than Heartbreak.
    And one daughter just finished her PhD :-)

  27. Everything everywhere all at once was truly transcendent. It’s out on streaming now and I can’t wait to watch it many more times!

  28. I just watched the premiere of the Ms. Marvel TV show last night and adored it. It’s relatable and has a super-fun energy. It visually shows Kamala’s daydreaming and fangirling in a creative way. I’m also looking forward to her cosmic adventure in the Marvels movie.

  29. I’ve really been enjoying the game Horizon Forbidden West. This series is hands down one of the best and most beautiful games I have ever played! I could play it for hours!

  30. I just finished Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez. This is the first book by her I have read and really enjoyed it. I got all the feels!

  31. I’ve been enjoying so many good books this summer! I loved Part of Your World, Kaikeyi, Lessons in Chemistry, The Hacienda, and Kagen the Damned. My TBR list is amazingly long, and I don’t have a chance in hell of finishing it ever, but the challenge of trying is the best part!

  32. I’ve been enjoying bullet journaling to keep track of everything I have going on, and recording some of my experiences in writing. It’s been a long time since the last time I kept a paper planner or journal, and it is fun to curate my custom collections – such as a list of upcoming books I want to read and their release dates!

  33. It’s been raining a lot where I am, so when the sun is out, I make an effort to sit in the sunshine and read (or do my cross-stitch) <3 Also getting joy from being goofy and exchanging memes with my family in our group chat.

  34. I redid my guest room into a office / art studio for my work. I moved a big comfy chair to the window. In the morning I sit there with blankets coffee and my tuxedo cat 🐈‍⬛ Toby while reading. The sun warming us both. It is truly my happy place. I have struggled with metal health issues for a long time and I never thought I’d know contentment like that.

  35. I just watched the first episode of Star Trek Strange New Worlds last night. I love all things Star Trek (except maybe the “Enterprise” series with Captain Archer, I couldn’t get past his too stupid to live ego and attitude!), so I’m really looking forward to bingeing the rest of episodes to date over the weekend!

  36. For the first time since the pandemic started, we visited my brother and sister-in-law in San Francisco – we had such a great time visiting with my wife’s family, spending time wandering through Golden Gate park, eating at some truly fantastic restaurants in SF and making sand castles on the beach at Crissy Field.
    Another source of joy: watching Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. I also just finished reading Emily Henry’s latest novel, Book Lovers and I am re-reading All Systems Red by Martha Wells.

  37. I just adopted a rescue kitten who is so much fun. I originally named him Clancy but because of his meows, his nickname is Ducky! Thank you for this chance, I love your books!

  38. I’m finishing up a knitting project, but I’m a very very slow knitter! Also trying to restart walking for exercise, hard to do when it’s triple digits though 🥵

    Very excited about Eclipse the Moon, can’t wait!

  39. So excited about this book! I’m at the beach with parents, sister and her kids this week! The ocean is my happy place!

  40. I just started Singapore Sapphire by A.M. Start, a Harriet Gordon Mystery. And have almost finished Fair Trade by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. I am currently watching the mystery series Shakespeare and Hathaway.
    Thank you for this giveaway opportunity.

  41. Hunt the Stars is (so far) my favorite read of 2022! I got the book via bookish box. It was something I never would’ve picked up for myself, but I ended up LOVING IT! So of course I had to go buy all your other books 🤣 currently enjoying Aurora Rising.

  42. I’m currently really enjoying the Quatrefoil Chronicles duology from Olivia Wildenstein and Katie Hayoz! My favorite read of 2022 so far is The Angels of Elysium series by Wildenstein, but I really loved Hunt the Stars as well and can’t wait to jump back into that world. You did an amazing job of world building without it bogging down the story, which was fantastic!

  43. I just finished reading Book Lovers by Emily Henry a while back so I really enjoyed that one! Also, finally went traveling for the first time after the pandemic 😆
    Thanks for the giveaway!
