Spring 2020 YASH Winners!

The Spring 2020 YA Scavenger Hunt Winners!

The YA Scavenger Hunt Organizers would like to congratulate this season's winners. This hunt was a little different than our norm. We decided to offer e-book and audiobook downloads as prizes instead of our traditional print books so that everyone, worldwide would feel the hunt was safe and accessible. 

You Guys Kept us Busy!

With over two thousand entries in the hunt, I can tell you there were a lot of anxious book hunters out there this season and it looks like Team Purple just slightly beat out the other teams on entries. Either there was more interest there, or the secret numbers were confusing. I know my pastry secret number on team purple confused some of you. I admit it was a bit more pinkish than purplish. I'll do better next time. ;)

Did You Win?

For those of you wanting to know if you won, I won't keep you waiting any longer. I'll list the grand prize winners first and then the individual author prize winners next. I'll keep adding the author prizes as they filter in over the next day or two so check back on the YASH website if you're waiting to find out about something specific. Don't forget to check the print out sheet to make sure you caught all the contests you entered. If you don't see an author announcement, check their website or tweet them if you can't find the info.

Grand Prize Winners

Grand prize winners receive one free e-book or audiobook download from each author on the winning team. The bonus prize winner receives a $50 Amazon e-gift card.

Defy the Sun


In this electrifying YA dystopian sequel to Beware the Night, Veda is captured and leveraged against her best friend, who fights for the opposing force.

Civil war has come to the island of Bellona. Veda Adeline believes in the Night. She’s joined the underground revolutionaries, led by Dorian Winters, and they're determined to overthrow the ruling Imperi and find justice for her people.

Nico Denali, Veda’s childhood friend and maybe-something-more, is one of those ruling Imperi, and he’s just been named heir to the most powerful man above ground.

As the war intensifies, Veda and Nico are leveraged against each other: Veda is above as a hostage of the Imperi and Nico is below, taken by the Night. There's no way Dorian is letting such a valuable hostage go.

The island will burn unless Veda and Nico can come together to rip everything apart. But Nico and Dorian will never trust each other, and Veda's heart might be the biggest casualty.

Between Burning Worlds (System Divine Series #2)


A traitor.
A prisoner.
A fugitive.

Wanted by the Regime. Destined to save the planet.

Laterre is on the brink of war. The Third Estate are rioting against the injustices of a corrupt system. The Patriarche, reeling from the murder of his only heir, makes brutal attempts to quash the unrest, while a new militant faction launches a series of deadly attacks.

And three outlaws find themselves pulled into the fray...

Marcellus is now a traitor to his planet, willing to do anything to stop his grandfather from seizing control of Laterre, even if it means joining the Vangarde, a rebel group back from the dead.

Chatine is a prisoner on Bastille. Desperate to survive the harsh conditions of the moon, she becomes embroiled in the Vangarde’s dangerous attempt to free their infamous leader.

Alouette is a fugitive who has been lied to her entire life. Searching for the truth about her mysterious past, she soon finds herself hunted by the Regime for reasons she’s only beginning to understand.

But when Laterre is threatened by the emergence of a deadly new weapon, these three renegades must risk everything, traveling to the far reaches of the System Divine and into the white hot center of a planet ready to ignite.
