Well, it’s that time of the month again: time for a new free ebook from Tor.com. This month it is Kushiel’s Dart. It sounds interesting, and I am looking forward to reading it. The ebook club page explains the story this way:
Cast aside due to the scarlet mote marring her left eye, Phèdre is saved by enigmatic nobleman Anafiel Delaunay. The spymaster recognizes her as being touched by the cruel god Kushiel, cursed (or blessed) to find pleasure in pain.
Under Delaunay’s patronage, Phèdre is trained as a courtesan spy, an expert in history, art, politics, masterful in the the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. In the bedchambers of the City of Elua’s nobles, gathering intel during pillow talk, Phèdre’s real training begins.
Oh, wait! I just saw that it is supposed to be over 900 pages! That’s a lot! We’ll have to see how it goes, I guess.
Anyway, if you want to check it out, go to Tor.com’s ebook club page by July 19th!
