Huge Fantasy Giveaway–and Did You Win a Book This Week?

Happy Sunday! You know what time it is…Winners. Plus, yes, there’s something special today. Leave a comment to be entered to win the ENTIRE Sharing Knife series by author Lois McMaster Bujold. Although Bujold is probably best known for her Miles Verkosigan series, she wrote this fantasy-romance hybrid series in the years from 2006-2009. It’s set in a fictional world based on the area in rural Ohio where she grew up, and is a terrific series that’s more accessible than a lot of epic fantasy. 

Here’s a quick rundown of the first volume. I don’t want to run info on all four books in the series since it might serve as spoilers, and you’ll want to experience the series without spoilers…but the giveaway is for all four books.
Book One: Beguilement: Troubled young Fawn Bluefield seeks a life beyond her family’s farm. But on the way to the city, she encounters a patrol of Lakewalkers, nomadic soldier-sorcerers from the northern woodlands. Feared necromancers armed with mysterious knives made of human bone, they wage a secret ongoing war against the scourge of the “malices,” immortal entities that draw the life out of their victims, enslaving human and animal alike. It is Dag—a Lakewalker patroller weighed down by past sorrows and present responsibilities—who must come to Fawn’s aid when she is taken captive by a malice. They prevail at a devastating cost—unexpectedly binding their fates together as they embark upon a remarkable journey into danger and delight, prejudice and partnership . . . and perhaps even love.
Book two is called Legacy; book three, Passage; and the fourth and final book, Horizon. Note that books 1, 2 and 4 are new mass-market paperback versions, which Harper Voyager is re-releasing this month; book two is a gently used hardback. (Don’t even ask!)
Just leave a comment below and tell me if you’ve read any of Lois McMaster Bujold’s other works—I hate to admit this was a new author for me, although I’ve been eying that Miles Vorkosigan series.

  2. I love, love, LOVE the Miles Vorkosigan series! And I did enjoy the first 2 books of The Sharing Knife (and don’t know how I missed the final two!) I read them from the library, so I’d love a set for my very own (especially with a gently used copy — means it was loved!)

    Thanks for yet another fab giveaway!

  8. I have not only read most of her books, I have also had the pleasure of meeting Lois McMaster Bujold in person and having a wonderful chat with her 🙂
    Read everything of hers that you can (especially early Miles Vorkosigan books :)).
    I’d love to win these books because I’ve only had the opportunity to read the first volume and the rest would just hit the spot!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
