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. :)

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 have been reading Hunt the Stars which I’ve been enjoying alot. I read the Consortium trilogy first- that was very fun! Also I have been listening to an audiobook version of “The Intimacy Experiment” which is a fun and different romance. Makes my commute time much more interesting.

    1. Though I mentioned a few things I enjoyed a long time ago and a few things I am looking forward to in my earlier message I should mention I’m really enjoying the Lost in Space series on Netflix. The family aspects + robot + adventure have been a great escape for me and my mom while grieving for my dad who passed away exactly a month ago. The show is heartwarming, very real and a stunning piece of Space Opera for me and my mom to enjoy. *I’m not trying to enter twice. Please disregard my first invalid comment.

      1. Michael, your first entry was valid because it wasn’t a reply. This comment is a reply, which doesn’t count, so I’m leaving both comments for now. If you want to repost this as a top-level comment (not a reply), I’ll delete the others.

  2. I had my second baby on May 16th and I’ve been enjoying the snuggles! 🥰 Looking forward to having something good to read while I’m up all night nursing 😆

  3. I am enjoying my trip to Seattle to visit my daughter and where the weather is so much cooler than Texas right now!

  4. I recently saw a post on FB for Polaris Rising – and nearly bought it again just because I absolutely loved it! It was really the start of my love of space opera – especially with a strong female lead. This year I’ve re-read The Consortium Rebellion series, and Hunt the Stars (of course), then T.A. White’s Firebird Chronicles. I’ve just finished the second book in Amanda Bouchet’s Endeavour Trilogy – eagerly awaiting the last book. So many good books to read! Have no idea what I’ll read next – might have to start at the beginning again…

    1. TA White’s Firebird Chronicles is one of my favorite series!! Are you excited for the new book in August?

  5. I have been enjoying my plant propagation glass bulbs. I just ordered a second set for my office. Pothos for everyone!

  6. I’m enjoying several things, for several senses – ripe, juicy cherries, strawberries & blackberries; vine ripened tomatoes; apple blossoms (just finished); lilacs, irises & lily of the valley (flowering now); following various serials like the latest Innkeeper by Ilona Andrews and your Hunt The Stars. I’m looking forward to booking some time glamping as soon as my daughter finishes an archeology class.

  7. I have been enjoying Ilona Andrews’ Sweep of the Heart serial, the current Wano Country arc in the One Piece manga, and Jason Porath’s Rejected Princesses. Thanks for the reminder to think about things that bring us joy!

  8. I’ve been enjoying playing waffle, a new-to-me word game. It’s sorta like wordle, but with 6 words instead of just 1.

  9. I’ve been watching the Netflix show Sex Education and totally enjoying it. It’s not normally the type of TV show I watch, so it’s taken me by surprise.

  10. I’ve been enjoying Sweep of the heart, by Ilona Andrews, every friday and Kiss Hard by Nalini Singh. And lots of cuddles from my cats in the evening and through the night (I would post a picture of them if it was allowed ;)).

  11. I just went to the coast and enjoyed the beach and time with my S.O. I live in Oregon so it was cloudy and cool, but that’s just what my Oregonian heart wanted.

  12. I’ve been spaceballs crazy about Space Opera for months now. Most of the Space Opera I’d previously read was old school stuff like Star Wars, Dune, Asimov’s robot series, Leigh Brackett’s Eric John Stark novels, David Brin’s Startide Rising, Neal Asher’s The Gabble, etc., but there was a story I read (I think) by Gene Wolfe about a human and his alien dog-like companion that stuck with me and made me very interested in not only a re-read but finding stories in space with dog or pet companions and why I’m so very interested in reading Abbott in Darkness by D.J. Butler and your Hunt the Stars & Eclipse the Moon. AND.LOVE.THE.COVERS !
    *btw did you know the first version of Star Wars, Star Wars: The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Luke had a dog?

  13. Hi Jessie,
    I’m so excited for Eclipse the Moon, I’ve already read Hunt the Stars several times.

    I have just started my research project in my MSc Microbiology investigating at bacteria that infects horses, pigs, HIV/AIDS and transplant patients. I absolutely love it. It’s so much fun to be a researcher. I love being in the lab and working on new and exciting things.

    I would love to win an ARC.

  14. I just saw Paul McCartney in concert last night and it was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! Total highlight of the summer.

    I’m very excited for this story to come out and to learn about Kee’s journey!!

  15. I traded in my 18-year old car for a new one. I was afraid that it would break down and there may not be parts to get it fixed. I had to replace a 6-year old washer with a broken door, because the model was discontinued and I couldn’t find a replacement door.

  16. I have been enjoying my new espresso machine. I’ve made some epic messes and had a few hilarious catastrophes, but it’s been fun to learn to make my own fancy coffees and to not have to make a 20 mile round trip drive to buy it!

  17. Hi,

    I’m entering as an international reader and the last thing that brought me joy was the following : I’m a developper and I recently changed job which lead me to learn new skills (a new language and new framework).
    At first I was always behind and I struggled with all the new concepts but last week I realized that I’m now able to create things from scratch and can review what my colleagues are doing and it was such a relief. At last i’m getting it :D !

  18. We are a member of the Goldsboro Books (UK) Prem1er Book Club and have really enjoyed getting new books every month from authors that are outside our norm. This month is the Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesly and we are really excited!

  19. I’ve enjoyed sleeping of late.
    We have two children under the age of four and it’s exhausting, especially in Covid times when they’re unable to be vaccinated. We can’t go to a lot of places and usually turn down social invitations. :( One day we’ll have friends again. But until that point, I cherish every two hours of uninterrupted sleep.

  20. I’ve just gotten home from a 2 month trip. Traveling was fantastic, but I’m really enjoying being back home and seeing my local friends again!

  21. My name is Kiri, and my most recent amazingly blissful joy was leaving snowy freezing Maine in February, flying to the Big Island in Hawaii, and enjoying my brother’s wedding in Pepeekeo in paradise! Couldn’t stop grinning ear to ear, so much bliss, joy, love and beauty!

  22. I went back swimming today after years of not practicing and the smell of chlorine to me is such a “Madeline effect” that it took me only an hour to be “back in the saddle again”!

  23. Hi Jessie,
    I’m currently reading a series of books called the Invisible Library, and it’s amazing. At about an inter dimensional library and it’s badass librarians who steal books from alternate worlds. I’m loving it!!!

  24. I read an amazing book called The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa. The author truly captured the voice of a cat and this is a story that will make you laugh out loud and cry.

  25. I spent a few days out in the woods with my dog and read “the Midnight Library” by Matt Haig which was checked out from my local library!
    P.S. The Consortium Rebellion series is still my favorite series. 💜

  26. Stephanie Kuersten

    I’ve been really enjoying reading the last book of Annette Marie’s Steel & Stone series, with daemons, magic, legendary creatures and more!

  27. I tried pilates for the first time this morning with some girlfriends. Felt so good to do something good for my body and with my people, despite the awfully early hour they wanted to do it. :)

  28. I have a goal to practice yoga once a day. My teacher sends out a calendar with links to her various practice videos – one to do each day. I’ve always wanted to do the month, but something or other always comes up and I miss a day, but this month I’ve been going strong! I’m excited that I’m sticking to my goal and really proud that I’m able to carve out a little time each day to practice. Fingers crossed I make it the rest of the month!

  29. I bought patio furniture for the first time. I am enjoying sitting in my rocking chair on my porch with a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise.

  30. My son is home from school and I enjoy spending time with him. On the weekends friends come over and play games with us. I enjoy that too.

  31. Based on your recommendation, I just finished Winter’s Orbit, by Everina Maxwell, which then led me to Behind the Throne, by K.B. Wagers – both are amazing books with rich world-building and incredibly compelling characters. I also really love the LGBTQIA* diversity – neither book shoves it in your face, it feels much more naturally integrated.

  32. I have a week off from school so I’ve spent my time spring cleaning and I have enjoyed it immensely. I went a little nutty and completely emptied out my garage before reorganizing and putting things back and now when I walk into my clean garage, I get a burst of serotonin. Is this what it means to be an adult? because I’m here for it.

  33. Abra Staffin-Wiebe

    I’ve been enjoying Ilona Andrews’ Hidden Legacy series! Recommended for your fans… Great family characters, romance, magic, and action-packed.

  34. The most fun I had watching something lately was the movie “The Lost City” (LMAO!!!!), and I’ve been watching The Librarians and enjoying it so much, the Doctor Who vibes!

  35. I bought a brown sugar oat milk coffee creamer on a whim and have been enjoying my morning coffee 10Xs more lately. :) Thank you for hosting this giveaway, Jessie!

  36. I’ve been enjoying the webtoons serial of the Annette Marie books.
    Any chance you would have your made in webtoons format? They are so fun!

  37. Enjoying more time with my kids now that they’re both out of school for the summer. My elder is home from college and I don’t know how I forgot how much he eats! Our household is fuller but also lazier, which is a nice summery mood.

  38. I just finished building my cat a cat tree. It was so great to take a drawing I did on paper and creating a finished product he enjoys!

  39. Hello!
    I really have been enjoying watching The Boys on Amazon Prime. Supernatural was one of my favorite shows, so as soon as I hear Jensen Ackles was going to be in the third season of The Boys, I had to start watching!

  40. I just totally loved watching the series “Heartstopper” on Netflix. I binged it and just smiled. I also recently went to Disneyland and that always makes me happy especially getting to see the Main Street Electrical Parade again.

  41. Hi, I’ve been enjoying trying out new restaurants. Last was this amazing Indian place with curry stuffed naan. It was delicious!

  42. I’ve been reading and I really enjoyed Rebecca Zanetti’s In forgiven and Honor Raconteur’s RIse of the Catalyst. I love the character development and believability. Their books (and yours!), once i start to read it, I can’t put aside until I’ve finished!

  43. This day I enjoyed having a good night sleep, getting my quilttop ready for the quilting part, the blooming flowers in my garden.
