As many of you know, I love science fiction. Baen has one that usually costs $6.00 on their site for free today in the Kindle format that has received 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 13 customer reviews called the Northworld Trilogy by David Drake. You can pick up your free copy by clicking here but make sure you choose the Kindle version!
I have previously posted on how to have the Baen server email a book to Amazon, which will then send it wirelessly to your Kindle: click here to see those instructions again. If you would rather download the book to your computer and transfer it to your Kindle and need a little instruction on how to do it, click here.
Here is the book’s description from the Baen website:
The inhuman Rulers of the galaxy sent three fleets to learn what had happened to the world located by Captain North and the Survey Team he led. Neither a soul nor a message returned. The fourth time, the Rulers sent a single man: Nils Hansen.
Commissioner Hansen had a mind that saw the shortest path to each task’s completion and a ruthless determination to do what the task required. The cost – to himself and whoever happened to be in the way – didn’t matter. Hanson’s Special Units had kept his planet safe from the most sophisticated and violent criminals in the galaxy. Now Hansen was being sent to penetrate a spacetime enigma which had made gods or demons of the first humans to discover it. He would succeed or die.
Northworld: a place of slashing violence and mystic transformation
Northworld: a place of treachery and dazzling beauty
Northworld: a place of honor, of faith, and of love.
Hansen’s iron will and strong arm confront godlike power and godlike cunning while a galaxy trembles for the outcome. And if Hansen dies – he will not die alone!
