OF BLOOD AND HONEY by Stina Leicht

If you’ve a memory longer than a fruit fly, you might remember that I named Stina Leicht‘s Of Blood and Honey as my favourite novel of 2011.

From my gushing review:

Not since Jim Butcher’s Storm Front have I read an Urban Fantasy that has felt so relevant to the overall discussion of Fantasy literature. Of Blood and Honey is Fantasy that deserves to stand alongside the best that authors like Powers, Gaiman and De Lint have to offer. It’s not perfect, but Leicht blew me away with her debut and has the potential to become a very important name in the annals of Urban Fantasy. If you’re bored of the same ol’ Epic Fantasy, or you need a break from spaceships, hyperdrives and anti-grav suits, cleanse your palette with Of Blood and Honey and find out just how good Urban Fantasy can be.

If you haven’t read Of Blood and Honey yet (and why not?), well, you’re in luck. For a limited time, Kindle users can download Of Blood and Honey for free. Hey, the price is right and the book is good, so why not. Not a Kindle user? Well, if you’re savvy enough, you might be able to find a way to read the kindle version of your eReader of choice. Or, you can use the desktop client/mobile app. Trust me, the book’s worth the effort.

The sequel, And Blue Skies from Pain, is due out in March from Night Shade Books.
