Free Read for Kindle: Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon

Posted by Simcha 2:52 PM, under | 4 comments

Amazon is currently offering Kay Kenyon's highly acclaimed scifi/fantasy novel, Bright of the Sky, for free download on their Kindle. And even if you don't have a Kindle you should be able to download this book with one of Amazon's free Kindle applications. On the downside, this offer does not look like it is available outside of the US though if you have a US connection they may be able to download it for you (which is what I'm going to try to do).

Into this rich milieu is thrust Titus Quinn, former star pilot, bereft of his beloved wife and daughter who are assumed dead by everyone on earth except Quinn. Believing them trapped in a parallel universe--one where he himself may have been imprisoned--he returns to the Entire without resources, language, or his memories of that former life. He is assisted by Anzi, a woman of the Chalin people, a Chinese culture copied from our own universe and transformed by the kingdom of the bright. Learning of his daughter's dreadful slavery, Quinn swears to free her. To do so, he must cross the unimaginable distances of the Entire in disguise, for the Tarig are lying in wait for him. As Quinn's memories return, he discovers why. Quinn's goal is to penetrate the exotic culture of the Entire--to the heart of Tarig power, the fabulous city of the Ascendancy, to steal the key to his family's redemption. But will his daughter and wife welcome rescue? Ten years of brutality have forced compromises on everyone. What Quinn will learn to his dismay is what his own choices were, long ago, in the Universe Entire. He will also discover why a fearful multiverse destiny is converging on him and what he must sacrifice to oppose the coming storm. This is high-concept SF written on the scale of Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld, Roger Zelazny's Amber Chronicles, and Dan Dimmons's Hyperion.

I have heard great things about this book and am looking forward to reading it.

book "purchased."
If you want to download only available in the US books, just change your location in your settings to being in the US. They will still ship to you internationally, but then you can buy US books.
YAY!
