As some of you know this is read an e-book week and a lot of authors and ebook companies are offering free and discounted ebooks. I just downloaded a free ebook (free from the author's page, non DRMed pdf version ; $1.99 on amazon.com) that has a very interesting synopsis.

Check out the whole list of free and discounted ebooks on Books on the Knob.

Stone Maiden ($1.99 Kindle), by Ann Aguirre.

Book Description
An extraordinary first novel, a new fantasy in the exotic storytelling tradition of Tales from the Thousand and One Nights?

Muir is a slave, the lowest of the low. Yet hers is a magic great enough to shake the earth, great enough to topple kings from their thrones, perhaps even great enough to free the gods from their ancient prisons-if only she can free herself first. Rodhlann is among the last of the Daiesthai, a race of inhuman sorcerers who bled the gods of their magic in order to enjoy limitless power and eternal life. But now, after untold centuries, the Daiesthai have lost the will to live. Only Rodhlann resists oblivion?s siren song. Only he dares to dream of a future for his kind. And for that crime, they will kill him if they can.

Thank you, Cheryl.

I've been watching Books on the Knob, but I must have missed this one.
