Before we talk about the Kindle deal, a friendly reminder that Brent and Terry Brooks will be chatting about morality in fantasy fiction today at 2pm PDT on Terry’s official Facebook page via Facebook LIVE!
Happy Boxing Day, everyone! Audible subscribers in the UK can celebrate this strange (to us Americans) and vaguely problematic (although I guess most of them are in some way or another) holiday by buying the audiobook of THE WAY OF SHADOWS for a mere £3.
This deal is for today only, so go use that gift card your nan got you and make your audiobook dreams come true.
“Then the luxin hardened in its shape, which was as much like a condor’s wings as Gavin had been able to manage. The wings caught the air, and Karris and Gavin shot into the sky.
The first time Gavin had attempted it, he’d tried to hold one wing in each hand. He’d learned then why birds have hollow bones and weigh almost nothing. The lift had nearly torn his arms off.

The whole thing flew on the strength and flexibility of the luxin, speed, and wind.
Of course, it didn’t really fly. It glided. He’d tried to use the reeds, but it hadn’t worked so far. For the time being, the condor had a limited range.
Karris wasn’t complaining. She was wide-eyed. “Gavin! Orholam, Gavin, we’re flying!” She laughed, carefree.”
