The Great Giveaway: Chasers of the Wind by Alexey Pehov (Tor Books)

Alright good people of the Internet, crawlers of the Almighty web and Readers of good fantasy, listen up!

Courtesy the awesome folks at Tor Books, I am hosting a giveaway contest here! And rejoice, ladies and gentlemen, for I have not one, not two but THREE Copies of the new release from Tor, Chasers of the Wind, first in an epic fantasy series from international best-selling Russian author Alexey Pehov !!

Here's the blurb:

After years of reassembling the Empire after the War of the Necromancers, disaster strikes again when the Nabatorians join forces with the necromancers of Sdis to take over the Empire, one city at  the time. Luk, a soldier who narrowly escapes the pillaging of the city when his place at the Gates of the Six Tower is attacked, and Ga-Nor, a northern Barbarian, flee the advances of the Nabatorian hordes together, finding safety in numbers. They encounter a married couple and Harold, the hero of the Chronicles of Siala, and the five set forth to escape and find peace within the Empire. The mysterious married duo, Grey and Layan, were once part of a secret assassin group until they took one job too far and now have a price on their head in the seedy underworld of the Empire. Unfortunately, on their way to safety, the group has made a powerful enemy in Tia, a dark sorceress and one of the Damned.
Instead of submitting to Tia’s will, the rag tag band attempts to kill her and ends up separating her from her mortal body, leaving her spirit to follow them, intent on revenge.

As Tia pursues the unlikely group, they encounter hordes of the undead and hidden magical talents, only to realize that the battles have begun to spread and nowhere is safe. Eventually, Grey and Layan, with the help of their new found allies, discover that they may be the only ones who can defeat The Damned and save the Empire.
