YA Scavenger Hunt (Stop #125)

The YA Summer Scavenger Hunt (free books and giveaways!)

Good day, my friend!

Author Jacob Devlin at your service, and I am your humble, happy host for this leg of the YA Summer Scavenger Hunt. Welcome to stop #125. You’re almost there! Sit with me real quick and have some water!

Three quick facts about me:

  • Italian is my second language. Amo parlare con i miei carssimi lettori!
  • I am a Ravenclaw. I have yet to try a Butterbeer.
  • When I’m not at my desk, you can usually find me at the movies! Or at some sort of comic convention.

But enough about me! You’re here to get that treasure. If you haven’t heard of this “treasure” yet because you came here first, I’ll get you caught up real fast!


Each author in the scavenger hunt has been given a special keyword, which will be bold and ALL CAPS on their websites. Hint: Mine is also typed in orange!

All you have to do to participate in the scavenger hunt is visit all the authors’ sites in the order of the map below, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story HERE. Then sign up for the main prize HERE.

There’s one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors also have smaller giveaways for free books, amazon credit, and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.

The Carver (Book 1)

Fifteen-year-old Crescenzo never would have believed his father’s carvings were anything more than “stupid toys.” All he knows is a boring life in an ordinary Virginia suburb, from which his mother and his best friend have been missing for years. When his father disappears next, all Crescenzo has left is his goofy neighbor, Pietro, who believes he’s really Peter Pan and that Crescenzo is the son of Pinocchio. What’s more: Pietro insists that they can find their loved ones by looking to the strange collection of wooden figurines Crescenzo’s father left behind.

With Pietro’s help, Crescenzo sets off on an adventure to unite the real life counterparts to his figurines. It’s enough of a shock that they’re actually real, but the night he meets the Girl in the Red Hood, dark truths burst from the past. Suddenly, Crescenzo is tangled in a nightmare where magic mirrors and evil queens rule, and where everyone he loves is running out of time. 

Ivory Queen

Ivory Queen (Book 1.5)

Retrace the timeline of The Carver and discover what happened on the other side of the mirror, where our villain rises.

The Unseen (Book 2)

Picks right up where The Carver left off and gives the story a Wonderland twist! If you’ve ever wanted to attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party, follow me down the rabbit hole!
