GIVEAWAY: Last First Snow, by Max Gladstone

Thanks to the forever-awesome people at Tor, I’m pleased to announce a new giveaway! This time, it’s for a hardcover copy of Max Gladstone’s upcoming Last First Snow, book 4 of the Craft Sequence.

I mean, seriously, how can you say no to that?!

Forty years after the God Wars, Dresediel Lex bears the scars of liberation-especially in the Skittersill, a poor district still bound by the fallen gods’ decaying edicts. As long as the gods’ wards last, they strangle development; when they fail, demons will be loosed upon the city. The King in Red hires Elayne Kevarian of the Craft firm Kelethres, Albrecht, and Ao to fix the wards, but the Skittersill’s people have their own ideas. A protest rises against Elayne’s work, led by Temoc, a warrior-priest turned community organizer who wants to build a peaceful future for his city, his wife, and his young son.

As Elayne drags Temoc and the King in Red to the bargaining table, old wounds reopen, old gods stir in their graves, civil blood breaks to new mutiny, and profiteers circle in the desert sky. Elayne and Temoc must fight conspiracy, dark magic, and their own demons to save the peace-or failing that, to save as many people as they can.

This series is very much worth reading, if you haven’t already done so, and I know the news about this book’s release has a lot of people on edge, waiting impatiently for the day they can read it.

So let’s make sure that one of my readers gets a copy in their hands, shall we?
