Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Dart is the Tor.com eBook Club Pick for July!

Long ago the angels decreed, “Love as thou wilt,” and thus rose the kingdom of Terre d’Ange.

Each month, the Tor.com eBook Club gives away a free sci-fi/fantasy ebook to club subscribers. We’re happy to announce that the pick for July 2017 is Kushiel’s Dart, the first volume in Jacqueline Carey’s intricate and intimate epic fantasy series!

Cast aside due to the scarlet mote marring her left eye, Phèdre is saved by enigmatic nobleman Anafiel Delaunay. The spymaster recognizes her as being touched by the cruel god Kushiel, cursed (or blessed) to find pleasure in pain.

Under Delaunay’s patronage, Phèdre is trained as a courtesan spy, an expert in history, art, politics, masterful in the the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. In the bedchambers of the City of Elua’s nobles, gathering intel during pillow talk, Phèdre’s real training begins.

But Phèdre is only an acolyte in the arts of subterfuge. Blindsided by her own longings, she stumbles into a conspiracy that stretches beyond simple court gossip. Amid betrayals and the looming threat of war, Phèdre learns that that which yields does not always break.
