Goodreads ARC Contest for Twelve Kings in Sharakhai!
I’m pleased to announce that DAW Books and Penguin Random House are hosting a giveaway for advanced reading copies (ARCs) of Twelve Kings in Sharakhai. Please go to the Goodreads page for the giveaway for more details. They’re giving away twenty-five (25!) copies of the book. The giveaway will run from May 20 – Jun 03, 2015.
Here’s the latest back cover blurb for the book:
Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings—cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal. With their army of Silver Spears, their elite company of Blade Maidens, and their holy defenders, the terrifying asirim, the Kings uphold their positions as undisputed, invincible lords of the desert. There is no hope of freedom for any under their rule.
Or so it seems, until Çeda, a brave young woman from the west end slums, defies the Kings’ laws by going outside on the holy night of Beht Zha’ir. What she learns that night sets her on a path that winds through both the terrible truths of the Kings’ mysterious history and the hidden riddles of her own heritage. Together, these secrets could finally break the iron grip of the Kings’ power…if the nigh-omnipotent Kings don’t find her first.
