For those of you who're interested: "Raetian Tales 1: A Wind from the South" now available in paperback

by Diane Duane

For a while now, we’ve been offering the first “Raetian Tales” book, A Wind from the South, as a downloadable e-book via the book’s web page. Now, though, after a lot of requests from various folks, at last there’s a paperback edition.

Here’s the blurb as a reminder:

In the remote mountain village where she was born, Mariarta dil Alicg lives the untroubled life of a peasant girl…until, soon after a mysterious stranger’s arrival, she starts to hear voices in the wind. The voices whisper strange secrets in Mariarta’s ears — promising her the power to command the stormwind, hinting at an unknown, magical heritage, and prophesying a fate marvelous past all Mariarta’s imaginings.

Then a curse falls on Mariarta’s village, shattering the lives of her family and friends. Mariarta must set out across the mountain realm of Raetia in search of a way to break the curse — while also hunting for the truth about the beautiful and terrible being who Mariarta discovers is trying to possess her soul.

Mariarta’s search will lead her into hidden domains of sorcery, and embroil the young woman in the growing rebellion against her land’s cruel Austriac oppressors. But not before Mariarta comes face to face at last with the immortal Lady of the Storms, and challenges her to one final battle for control of her life, her soul, and her destiny…

And here’s a link to the first two chapters as an Adobe .PDF file, if you want to sample a little more of the book than is available on the Lulu site. Also, some reader comments are here.
