I’m not a Kindle girl, myself, but I just noticed that Amazon is offering up the Kindle edition of Bradley Beaulieu’s The Winds of Khalakovo for free right now! I have no idea how long this will last, but it’s really an interesting fantasy novel and a great read—not overly simple. I wrote a review after I read it last summer (having found it as one of Barnes & Noble’s Free Fridays selections—their best one still, if you ask me), so have a look at that if you want to know a little more. But goodness, dear reader, it’s a free, good fantasy novel!
If you have a Kindle or one of their reading apps, by all means, go download it.
The Winds of Khalakovo is the first of what—I believe—is supposed to be a trilogy. The second volume, The Straits of Galahesh, comes out within a couple of weeks.
Edit: Winds isn’t the only thing being given away, it turns out. Beaulieu RTed my tweet about the free Kindle edition, so (naturally) I checked out his profile, where I found this tweet from earlier today:
The response to The Straits of Galahesh Giveaway has been amazing. Still time to enter! Prizes of a Nook Tablet, Kindle http://streamified.me/9d3b47
Turns out the author and his publisher, Night Shade Books, are running a free contest with prizes of ebooks, signed paperbacks, even a touch reader or B&N or Amazon tablet. (And there’s an interactive map with Easter eggs. whee :) ) Pretty impressive for a giveaway to hype a book release! It’s open for entries through April 3, the release day for Straits. Follow to link above to give it a shot.
