If you're like us, you're officially ready for spring. We've had enough of the cold, the dark, and the grim weather. The last thing we need right now is more heavy reading, which is what makes Floating Hotel by Grace Curtis such a perfect read for the moment. 

Curtis's second published novel is a cozy story about the Grand Abeona Hotel, which travels through space and represents the height (literally) of luxury. Here's what Publishers Weekly said about the work in its starred review: "Curtis has a knack for keeping things intimate and understated, peeling back the layers of the novel’s scrappy found family. Centering optimism in the face of an increasingly dark universe, this feel-good saga lingers long after it’s finished."

But for all of the sights, the sweets, and the service, it's the people of the Abeona that really makes this story go. Secrets abound, and there are mysteries to be solved. Stowaway-turned-hotel-manager Carl finds himself caught in the middle of it all, facing down stakes he never could have imagined.

The Portalist is giving away a copy of Floating Hotel, along with a thematic “Do Not Disturb” hotel room door-hanger, to five lucky winners. Entering is free, and you can double your chances by subscribing to the Early Bird Books newsletter! The giveaway runs until March 3.

Floating Hotel

By Grace Curtis

This cozy science fiction novel tells a story of misfits, rebels, found family—and a mystery that spans the stars.

Welcome to the Grand Abeona Hotel: home of the finest food, the sweetest service, and the very best views the galaxy has to offer. All year round it moves from planet to planet, system to system, pampering guests across the furthest reaches of the milky way. The last word in sub-orbital luxury—and an absolute magnet for intrigue. Intrigues such as: Why are there love poems in the lobby inbox? How many Imperial spies are currently on board? What is the true purpose of the Problem Solver’s conference? And perhaps most pertinently—who is driving the ship?

Each guest has a secret, every member of staff a universe unto themselves. At the center of these interweaving lives and interlocking mysteries stands Carl, one time stowaway, longtime manager, devoted caretaker to the hotel. It’s the love of his life and the only place he’s ever called home. But as forces beyond Carl’s comprehension converge on the Abeona, he has to face one final question: when is it time to let go?

For full details, see official rules.

Note: The sweepstakes is open to all legal residents of the 50 United States and Washington, DC who are 18 years of age and older by March 3, 2024.
