Win a copy of Joel Shepherd's SASHA

I have three copies of Joel Shepherd's latest fantasy novel, Sasha, for you to win, compliments of the cool folks at Pyr. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Having thoroughly enjoyed Shepherd's Cassandra Kresnov sequence -- Crossover (Canada, USA, Europe), Breakaway (Canada, USA, Europe), and Killswitch (Canada, USA, Europe), I'm very keen to read this one! All the more so since Booklist claimed that Sasha should appeal to fans of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

Here's the blurb:

Spurning her royal heritage to be raised by the great warrior, Kessligh, her exquisite swordplay astonishes all who witness it. But Sasha is still young, untested in battle and often led by her rash temper. In the complex world of Lenayin loyalties, her defiant wilfulness is attracting the wrong kind of attention.

Lenayin is a land almost divided by its two faiths: the Verenthane of the ruling classes and the pagan Goeren-yai, amongst whom Sasha now lives. The Goeren-yai worship swordplay and honour and begin to see Sasha as the great spirit—the Synnich—who will unite them. But Sasha is still searching for what she believes and must choose her side carefully.

When the Udalyn people—the symbol of Goeren-yai pride and courage—are attacked, Sasha will face her moment of testing. How will she act? Is she ready to lead? Can she be the saviour they need her to be?

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam) with the header "SASHA." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy.

Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.

Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.

Good luck to all the participants!

Sasha is short for Alexander. So is the main character a boy?
