Free Eos eBook: City of Pearl by Karen Traviss

For a limited time, Eos is making City of Pearl by Karen Traviss, the first book of the Wess’har Wars series, available as a free download. (use the coupon code EOS4) Formats provided include Adobe Digital, Microsoft Reader and Mobipocket.

What’s it about? Here’s the description:

Three separate alien societies have claims on Cavanagh’s Star. But the new arrivals — the gethes from Earth — now threaten the tenuous balance of a coveted world.

Environmental Hazard Enforcement officer Shan Frankland agreed to lead a mission to Cavanagh’s Star. Her landing, with a small group of scientists and Marines, has not gone unnoticed by Aras, the planet’s designated guardian. An eternally evolving world himself, this sad, powerful being has already obliterated millions of alien interlopers and their great cities to protect the fragile native population. Now Shan and her party — plus the small colony of fundamentalist humans who preceded them — could face a similar annihilation . . . or a fate far worse. Because Aras possesses a genetic secret that would be disastrous if it fell into human hands — if the gethes survive the impending war their coming has inadvertently hastened.

Don’t dawdle…this offer expires on August 31, 2008.

9 Comments on Free Eos eBook: City of Pearl by Karen Traviss

  1. You know, I appreciate the free book and all…but they’ve got to make the process easier. It took me three tries to get through the whole checkout process.

    Compare this (or even Tor’s offerings) to Baen’s Webscriptions Free Library. What a difference!!!

    :O

  2. Actually, the Adobe format is *NOT* PDF. It is Adobe Digital Editions, which has a PDF extension but requires a different reader. All hail DRM!!

  3. PDF changed to Adobe Digital. Thank you, Your Majesty. πŸ˜‰

    Also…I’ve forwarded the DRM concerns to EOS.

  4. Who says “dwadle” anymore?

  5. The same people who use “dawdle”? (H)

  6. Hmmmmm – guess I should have spellchecked – but since I don’t dawdle I didn’t notice it . . . don’t be so picayune about the spelling πŸ˜›
