No Easy Way Out is out in paperback!!












And to celebrate, I’m going to give away signed, possibly doodled-upon hardcover copies of No Safety in Numbers and No Easy Way Out! Aw, heck — I’m so excited, I’ll give TWO lucky winners hardcover copies, and two lucky runners-up signed and doodled-upon paperbacks!

To enter, just retweet this post (and tag me @DaynaLorentz) or post it in your Facebook feed (and tag me), or otherwise spread the word about the series and let me know about it here in the comments. Your comment here is your entry; the comment should say how you’ve spread the word in some way about No Easy Way Out. I’ll choose the winners randomly from the comments.

    I love this series. I just finished No Safety in Numbers and have No Easy Wat Out in hold for me at B & N. I am a middle school teacher and have been singing the praises of this book. They kids have watched me read the bk 1 during our reading day in advisory. I can’t wait to pull out bk. 2. How is like a copy of each for my classroom library. I have a reluctant reader who has already told me he’d like to read this series after I have him a short synopsis of what has happened so far. It doesn’t get much better than that!

    Will share on FB. Would loooooove to get the 3rd book early! Can’t wait to see how it all ends. 🙂

    I have read No Safety in Numbers – and am almost finished with No Easy Way Out. I can’t wait to read the new book when it is released — No Dawn without Darkness. These books will grab you early on and hold you captive even after you finish. I recently commented that in reading No Easy Way Out, I find that I am so involved with the characters that even when I walk away I feel like I am in the Mall. It is terrifying and absorbing and you will be so drawn in that you won’t want to put the books down… and won’t be able to stand waiting for the next issue.

    I am entering this contest so I can read No Dawn Without Darkness even before the book stores get their copy. Hurry!!! I am almost finished with No Easy Way Out and won’t be able to stand the wait!!!

    Thank you for writing such great books. I hope everybody reads them. These should be a new modern classic, much like Lord of the Flies was when I was a teen. This story is even more intense and realistic and therefore more likely to be enjoyed by all ages. Although these are found in the “Young Adult” section… they are thrilling to this Grandma too.

    Shared and posted about the giveaway on Facebook. Just finished NO SAFETY IN NUMBERS just a few minutes ago. As an employee in a mall I was fascinated with the premise of this series and now having finished book one I am addicted. AMC needs to pick up this series as I believe it work well on television. Each episode would be 1 day in the mall or something along those lines. Picking up NO EASY WAY OUT this weekend. I cannot wait to see what happens.

    I loved the first two books in the series. I shared about the contest by making a flyer and hanging it up at the high school. I can’t wait to see your new book with the reading club!

    I am so excited for the release of the third book! You have no clue the excitement and bewilderment your work has caused me!

    I just recently found out about No Safety in Numbers and No Easy Way Out (the end of February to be exact) and now that I found out there will be a book 3 I almost can’t contain myself!

    Although I do fear that I may be too late to enter the contest/giveaway seeing as I just stumbled across your website today.

    Either way, I can’t describe how happy I would be if I got picked for the giveaway! Thanks a million for creating such an amazing book series and I can’t wait to see what else you have for us!

    I would just like to let you know that I’m am in love with this books. I don’t ever read but I had seen the first book and I pick it up and was like ummmm this looks good. I started reading the first couple pages and I fell in love. I finished that book in like 24 hours then I pick up the second one the day it came out the second that I could. I just stormed through that one. And now I can’t wait for the next one. I would love to win (: thank you for much Dayna for writing such amazing books.

    My son’s reading good has read all your books so far. I share about your book series by telling anyone who will listen about how good they are. I am hoping to win so that my son can share with his reading group. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Love the first two books and have been anxiously awaiting the 3rd! Thank you so much for even considering this offer to your fans. And thank you for writing such a great trilogy!

    Posted on Facebook/twitter. Cannot wait to see how this all ends. Loved the series from the first time I picked up ‘no safety in numbers’.

  11. Emily Medina

    I have been telling all of my reader friends about your amazing books that you’ve written and that ” No Dawn Without Darkness” will soon be released. Most of my friends seemed pretty interested and wanted to check out this giveaway as well. I have also visited the library and told any young reader who would listen about the trilogy. If they where really interested I would send them to this website to check it out. I have a feeling this last
    book will be pretty good.

    I started the series because my grown daughter would not stop talking about it. I am obsessed with the series and have been impatiently waiting on the third book to come out. I have spread the word by telling my book club and friends and hospital staff. I would love to win.

      Alas, the contest is over! 🙁 But there will be more contests in the future–hooray!

  14. Dawn

    I recommended ‘No Safety in Numbers’ to my book club students… Many of them went on to read the 2nd book. We are now dying for the 3rd one to come out.
    I wish I had seen your book giveaway for ‘No Dawn Without Darkness’ !!!
    We will just have to wait like everyone else 🙁

    I have read only the first book so far, and am about to dive into the sequel. This book was simultaneously smart and thrilling. It was thought-provoking, in the way that it made me wonder what I would do if I were ever in such a situation. Can’t wait to finish the trilogy. 🙂

  16. Laura

    I teach middle school. More than one student told me that I needed to begin reading these books. They were right!

    Thanks to this series, my students are learning that an apocalypse has nothing to do with zombies.
