Exclamation Free (Kindle DRM-free) Lords of Rainbow by Vera Nazarian [Epic Fantasy w/ Romance]

So, as part of that KDP Select exclusive-or-else-but-you-can-offer-your-book-free-for-5-days-out-of-90-thing, once again some nice backlist sf/fantasy has shown up.

Lords of Rainbow, some kind of epic fantasy which looks like it's got some romance in it, by Vera Nazarian, is now free courtesy of the author.

Nazarian is a Marion Zimmer Bradley protégée and now runs sf/fantasy small press imprint Norilana Books, which reprints Tanith Lee (if you read fantasy, you should know who she is) and Eugie Foster (Hugo nominee), among others, in both print and e-book formats, and also the new versions of MZB's popular Sword & Sorceress anthologies.

Free for an increasingly limited time @ Amazon without DRM, so you can convert if you've a different reader. Linkage to main, UK, DE, ES, FR, IT.

For some bizarre and probably inexplicable reason, this book is now ranked #1 in "Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Professional & Technical > Professional Science > Physics > Light".

Description (kind of sucks, for a better one, read the Library Journal or Romantic Times reviews provided in the Product Description)
Imagine a world without color, illuminated by a gray sun ...

An unrequited love...
War... mystery... exultation...

An epic fantasy of unspeakable wonder...

LORDS OF RAINBOW

Imagine a sudden brilliant flash -- an artificial orb ignites, filled with peculiar impossible light...

The nature of this light bears no description. It lingers in dreams, inciting an unrequited love for a goddess.

A corrupt city is shaped like a perfect wheel, and is ruled by a sister and brother, Regent and Regentrix, by perverse desires, and by a secret...

A loyal warrior woman swears to serve a mysterious lord. At the same time, an epic invasion is precipitated by a being of utter darkness, who is the one absolute source of black in a monochrome silver world.

And amid all this, flickers an ancient memory of a phenomenon called Rainbow and of those who had once filled the world with an impossible thing called color...

Lords of Rainbow.

Got it. Thanks.

It may perhaps be more than a Romance - at least, that is what I am hoping.

Oh, it's definitely an epic fantasy first and foremost (haven't read this myself, but familiar with Nazarian's short stories in Sword & Sorceress).

I just put the maybe-romance in because she's kind of got a florid style and it also looks like the kind of thing that comes with a strong shippy subplot, like Lois McMaster Bujold's "Sharing Knife" books or N.K. Jemisin's "Hundred Thousand Kingdoms" and some people like to know about that so they can be sure to pick up/avoid according to their personal prefs.

No longer free. The author seems to be doing one free book a day. Today is The Duke in His Castle.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll put the new one in a new thread so that interested people can get it while it's still free.

For anyone who missed it, the author has now made this free for another day, which if I'm reading her Twitter statuses correctly will make it at least the 3rd day out of the allotted 5.

So after this, it'll probably revert to being $7.99 for the next 3 months, barring some special promotional event on which she can use the other remaining 2 (?) freebie days.
