Free today only-- Colossus: Stone & Steel [Hist Fic] (US, UK) [Amazon]

Colossus: Stone and Steel by David Blixt is free today only (June 22) at Amazon main UK

Description:
Colossus - Book One
Judea, 66 AD. A Roman legion suffers a smashing and catastrophic defeat at the hands of an angry band of Hebrews armed with only slings and spears. Knowing Emperor Nero's revenge will be swift and merciless, they must decide how to defend their land against the Roman invasion. Caught up in the tumult is the mason Judah, inadvertent hero of Beth Horon, who now finds himself rubbing shoulders with priests, revolutionaries, generals, and nobles, drafted to help defend the land of Galilee.


FULL DISCLOSURE: I had actually already bought this ebook (haven't read it yet), as the writer is a personal friend of mine and I learned of this promotion via his facebook feed. His first book, The Master of Verona, was originally published by St. Martin's Press in 2007, and received positive reviews and got great blurbs from other historical writers such as C.W. Gornter and Peter Tremayne. It was one of my favorite books that I read that year.

Blixt is a huge fan of Colleen McCullough's Masters of Rome series and Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe books, and if you like either of those I would expect you'd enjoy this. Blixt writes action especially well, as he also works as a professional fight choreographer.

So basically, it's 'Free Today' every day? Or perhaps every other odd day?

Hmmm...guess my math differs from yours, in that I count about four free days since June.
