Contest for Bradley Beaulieu's The Winds of Khalakovo


Through the vagaries of the mail system I have ended up with an extra copy of Bradley Beaulieu's debut The Winds of Khalakovo, which I'm putting up for grabs. This is the first in a new Fantasy series called The Lays of Anuskaya from Night Shade, which is heavily influenced by Russian culture. Beaulieu also credits A Game of Thrones as a big influence on his work. Here's the blurb for The Winds of Khalakovo to whet your appetite:
Among inhospitable and unforgiving seas stands Khalakovo, a mountainous archipelago of seven islands, its prominent eyrie stretching a thousand feet into the sky. Serviced by windships bearing goods and dignitaries, Khalakovo's eyrie stands at the crossroads of world trade. But all is not well in Khalakovo. Conflict has erupted between the ruling Landed, the indigenous Aramahn, and the fanatical Maharraht, and a wasting disease has grown rampant over the past decade. Now, Khalakovo is to play host to the Nine Dukes, a meeting which will weigh heavily upon Khalakovo's future.

When an elemental spirit attacks an incoming windship, murdering the Grand Duke and his retinue, Prince Nikandr, heir to the scepter of Khalakovo, is tasked with finding the child prodigy believed to be behind the summoning. However, Nikandr discovers that the boy is an autistic savant who may hold the key to lifting the blight that has been sweeping the islands. Can the Dukes, thirsty for revenge, be held at bay? Can Khalakovo be saved? The elusive answer drifts upon the Winds of Khalakovo...
To enter send an email to madhatterreview (AT) gmail (dot) com with your full name and snail mail address and "WINDS" in the subject line along. The deadline is midnight April 16th. I'll announce the winner on the following day or as soon as I remember. This contest is open to the world. If you send multiple entries you will be disqualified from the contest. The winner will be selected via random number generator per usual.  Look for a special post tomorrow from Bradley.  Also, there are still a couple days for the Bledsoe and Henderson contests.

I've never heard of this, but now I'm extremely interested. Might have to grab it on Amazon for sub-10 bucks...unless I win it ;)

Reminds me of Skies of Arcadia. Man I loved that game.
