Win a set of David J. Williams' The Autumn Rain trilogy




With David J. Williams' final volume in the series, The Machinery of Light (Canada, USA, Europe), about to be released, I'm giving away two full sets of The Autumn Rain trilogy, compliments of the folks at Bantam Dell.

So in addition to this third volume, the lucky winners will also get their hands on the action-packed The Mirrored Heavens (Canada, USA, Europe) and its sequel, The Burning Skies (Canada, USA, Europe). Can't wait to see how it all ends!

This series is perfect for Joel Shepherd and Richard Morgan fans! For more information, check out Williams' website.

Here's the blurb:

With The Machinery of Light, David J. Williams completes his furiously paced, stunningly imagined trilogy - a work of vision, beauty, and pulse-pounding futuristic action.

September 26, 2110. 10:22 GMT. Following the assassination of the American president, the generals who have seized power initiate World War Three, launching a surprise attack against the Eurasian Coalition's forces throughout the Earth-Moon system. Across the orbits, tens of thousands of particle beams and lasers blast away at one another. The goal: crush the other side's weaponry, paving the way for nuclear bombardment of the cities.

As inferno becomes Armageddon, the rogue commando unit Autumn Rain embarks on one last run. Matthew Sinclair, an imprisoned spymaster, plots his escape. And his former protégé Claire Haskell, capable of hacking into both nets and minds, is realizing that all her powers may merely be playing into Sinclair's plans. For even as Claire evades the soldiers of East and West amid carnage in the lunar tunnels, the surviving members of the Rain converge upon the Moon, one step ahead of the Eurasian fleets but one step behind the mastermind who created Autumn Rain - and his terrible final secret.

Read the first two last year based on your positive reviews and enjoyed them. Williams reminds me of William Gibson.

Can't say I have read the books yet, but the last two are number 11 and 12 on my current list of books to buy and read. Solely on basis of the covers though ( yeah I AM shallow)

the first two were surprisingly good. a mix of morgan and scalzi.

I got halfway through the first about a month ago and gave up, I'll try again some other time as I think it had more to do with my current mood for reading rather than the book itself. Don't think I've ever read a book in second person before either, it's certainly interesting. (it is second person right? or is here another name for it?)

Thanks Patrick! best of luck to everybody!

@Jebus : books are written in third-person present. Not 2nd person. I want to nip any rumors in the bud : )

Jebus said...

Ah cool, thanks Mr Williams.

And it's definitely my mood, couldn't get into 3 more books I've tried since then, so your book ain't shit! ;-P (but you knew that anyway)

Just finished an ARC of Machinery of Light and it's the BOMB - literally! For fans who loved the first 2 books, be prepared to be blown away! The action is more intense, the twists and turns are even more subtle, and the characters continue to grow and get better! My favorite SF series ever!
