Eos, a division of Harper Collins, is giving away one free book in e format every two months for 2008 in celebration for their 10th Anniversary (plus they get your email address). The first book is Robin Hobb’s, Shaman’s Crossing.
Robin Hobb is a Washington writer, well known for the Farseer, Liveship Traders, and Tawny Man trilogies. From the book blurb:
A thrilling epic fantasy tale about a noble’s son destined for a brilliant military career . . . until he is claimed by an unknown magic. With a secured place in Gernia’s calvary, Nevare hopes to distinguish himself to his King and family. But jealous rivals hound his studies at the military academy, and even more unsettling is the discovery that insidious magic may be using him to betray his own people.
I’ve not read Hobb, but the author is a favorite over at MobileRead. This offer is, unfortunately, open only to US residents and expires on February 29, 2008 (12:00 am EST).
