Who would like a sneak peek at the opening sentence to The Enchantress? flamelssecret/jawdrop.gif

Would you also like a chance to win a limited edition promotional copy of The Alchemyst that was only available in Ireland... with a signed bookplate inside?

You would? flamelssecret/hyper_.gif

Well..we can bring that to you!

Starting today we have a scavenger hunt for you! With grateful thanks to Michael for providing us with the opening sentence to The Enchantress and Random House for providing us with the promotional copy of The Alchemyst!

Below you will see the first words that you will need, these are the only words that will be in their proper place in the sentence, the rest of the words you will get over the coming weeks, with the final words being released on Feb 21st, will not be in order.
Your challenge is to collect all the words from our various links on Facebook, Twitter, the Portal, the Podcast and here on the forum and arrange them into their proper place.

The words will appear at random dates and times, they will not be removed so don't worry that you'll miss them! The last one will appear on Feb 21st, and entries will close on Feb 28th. The winner will be drawn by random selection and announced on Feb 29th.
The competition is open worldwide to our forum members.

Here's how you enter:

1. PM the sentence in the order you think is correct to a Mod or Admin..BUT NOT to Michael! (He's really busy right now!)

2. Post in the 'Entries' thread... 'I've submitted my entry to....' followed by the Mod or Admin's name that you have PM'ed

3. The Mod or Admin will either edit your post to say your entry is correct and has been accepted, or they will respond to tell you that your entry is incorrect...they will not tell you what the correct answer is, so don't ask them!

That's all there is to it!

What you must be aware of... Anyone posting the whole sentence, the words they've found or where they found them anywhere at all (including Facebook & Twitter) will be DISQUALIFIED immediately, no arguments!


Ready to play?

Here's your first clue words (and these are in their CORRECT place!)

" The crystal "

There's some bonus words already released! Can you find them?

Do you need to have a Facebook and a Twitter account in order to get all the words? Because I do not have either....

Advinci you dont need to have a FB or twitter account theyre public profiles you just need to follow the link.

ok two questions, are the other sites going to give us the words or are they hidden in statuses or tweets?? Also if our first guess is wrong can we resubmit another guess?

Advinci, no you do not need to have Facebook or Twitter accounts to see the posts/ tweets, our profiles on those sites are public /open so available for everyone to see.

Yes the other sites will give you the words, but each word/set of words will only appear on that site so you need to visit each of them to find all of the words to complete the sentence.

You will have to look for them but they will be clearly marked as the clue words.

Yes, If your guess is wrong you can re-submit another guess.

Once the scavenger hunt has ended will the first sentence be posted?

If Michael agrees that it would be ok then yes it will

I can tell you that the third set of words is out now..

Is it really a sentence and not a paragraph or something?

Entries close on the 28th of Febuary forum (UK) standard time, so you have until then to submit the correct sentence.
