Giveaway – The Red Wolf Conspiracy (5/11/2012)

The King’s Assassin is officially out and that’s a trilogy officially done, a series officially finished, and if any of you were hoping for some more of Berren then. . . then read the book. All of it. Right to the end. There’s still  a freebie novella up on the Gollancz blog – a prelude to The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice. I’ll put a PDF up here shortly.

This week I’m giving away a copy of Robert Redick’s Red Wolf Conspiracy. This is the first volume in the Chathrand Voyage quartet, the last of which (Night of the Swarm) has just come out, so no irritating waiting for the series to finish if you get hooked. This is a truly magical series (as far as I’ve read) full of hope and wonder and magic, and I heartily recommend it for adults and almost-adults alike. Robert has a lovely website for the series here.

Usual deal – comment on this post and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy of the book. In order to enter, comment on this post before the 10th November. Your challenge this week is to recommend a book to anyone else who comes to visit the giveaway page. If you make me laugh I might send an exciting bonus goody your way[1]. Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far.

[1] Exciting bonus goody not guaranteed to be exciting. Actually it’s often a postcard. Which is pretty lame.

    I would recommend Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It’s a novel set in the future about a kid that’s trying to win a contest by getting through challenges in a virtual world that are all based on video games/movies/comics etc. from the past. Thought it was fantastic. So much fun and nice to travel down memory lane. To be fair, though, I might be the EXACT demographic for whom the book appeals, and by that I mean total nerd growing up in the 1980s.

    Read The Red Knight by Miles Cameron : it’s not an old classic it’s brand new out and the authors first fantasy book, it shows how close the historical fiction and fantasy genres really are… And it’s bloody good.
    Advert over.

    The Lies of Locke Lamora is the greatest book of all time. I mean compared to it, the book you’re trying to win by being here is complete crap. In fact, I don’t even know why you’re here. Go read The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch right away. Don’t even bother commenting here, there’s no point since reading The Lies of Locke Lamora will put you off all other books (except the sequel, Red Seas under Red Skies) for life. Compared to this amazing book, anything else will read like Morris Gleitzman, so you’ll just sit at home re-re-re-re-reading The Lies of Locke Lamora wishing that any other author could even come close to the magnificence shown by Scott Lynch.

    The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. Just because it’s an amazing series. I have nothing funny to say, so yeah. That’s pretty much it.

  6. Mathew says:

    I’d highly recommend Prince of Thorns bt Mark Lawrence, it’s an unusual take on common fantasy. Also the sequel is out and the final of the trilogy next year (I think).

    Ok let’s be funny…….What did Jimmy Sav………No ok I won’t go there.
