  12. I don't know a lick of German, but I'm already an "awesome" follower, so don't know if that counts for the giveaway!

    And for this trailer: if they made a German movie from this trailer with the same actors and music, I would totally sit through it without any idea of what they were saying because it looks THAT AWESOME. (That's a lie, I'd be the one in the back with a copy of the book and a booklight following the scenes along with my book)

    Congrats on the awesome German publicity!

  27. I do not know any German so I've gone through multiply translators trying to find the most accurate or atleast the most commonly occuring translation.
    Finally I've come up with what I hope is right:

    Two Worlds
    Two Destinies
    One Love

    If you were after all of the text this is the rest:

    Veronica Rossi (This one was easy to translate :) )
    Spellbound (I got 'banned' as well)
    Under Another Sky

  28. I have no idea on German language but Google Translate is a great help to me! Here are my answers:

    Two Worlds, Two Fates, One Love - Spellbound: Under the Strange Sky

    And I'm following via Von @ Mr. Book Wonder.

    The German trailer is quite dramatic and eerie. The background music also added a great effect. I really haven't read UTNS because I still have to save money for it. So I took advantage of this giveaway so I do hope I win! Thanks Veronica for making this an international giveaway! :D

  30. I am in India, and we don't use/speak German in any part of our country, although we have 100s of other languages. :) So, I suppose its not cheating to use Google Translate.

    Google Translate Answers:
    Two Worlds
    Two Fates
    One Love
    Spellbound
    Under the Foreign Sky
