GIVEAWAY! The Eternal Sky trilogy by Elizabeth Bear

Thanks to our friends at Tor, we’ve got a great giveaway offer today: All three novels in Elizabeth Bear‘s ETERNAL SKY trilogy!

After reading the first book, Range of Ghosts, our friend Stefan saidRange of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear is the best fantasy novel I’ve read all year, and you should read it too.”

I read it a few months ago and remarked that “Range of Ghosts is what I always want high fantasy to be, and what it rarely is.” I just finished the second book and I’m completely in love with this series. The final novel, Steles of the Sky, is being released today and I can’t wait to read it. I can’t recommend THE ETERNAL SKY highly enough!

This giveaway is open to anyone with a mailing address in the U.S. or Canada. Just comment below for a chance to win. We’ll pick a winner next week.

The Eternal Sky — (2012-2014) Publisher: Temur, grandson of the Great Khan, is walking away from a battlefield where he was left for dead. All around lie the fallen armies of his cousin and his brother, who made war to rule the Khaganate. Temur is now the legitimate heir by blood to his grandfather’s throne, but he is not the strongest. Going into exile is the only way to survive his ruthless cousin. Once-Princess Samarkar is climbing the thousand steps of the Citadel of the Wizards of Tsarepheth. She was heir to the Rasan Empire until her father got a son on a new wife. Then she was sent to be the wife of a Prince in Song, but that marriage ended in battle and blood. Now she has renounced her worldly power to seek the magical power of the wizards. These two will come together to stand against the hidden cult that has so carefully brought all the empires of the Celadon Highway to strife and civil war through guile and deceit and sorcerous power.
