In this week's sponsor sample, meet a warrior with a heart and a mission

The fabulous Grey Sun Press is this week's sponsor, and they're sharing a meaty chapter from the fast-paced fantasy epic Amaskan's Blood by Seattle author Raven Oak. The first book in the Boahim series, Amaskan's Blood introduces a young woman warrior with a bit of a problem: she's miles from home and from her people, tangled in political intrigue, and suddenly unsure that even her name is her own. The e-book is available on this week for just $0.99 — a crazy small amount of money for this much fun.

The excerpt, a boudoir scene with a twist — a potentially deadly one — introduces the warrior's story, though not the woman herself. It's the perfect entry point to the series, with the second book (Amaskan's War) due out in 2018, and a very satisfying read. Check it out on our sponsorship page.
