At the beginning of every month Tor.com publishing offers what is normally a paid ebook for free for one week.
This months’s free ebook is The Bloodline Feud by Charles Stross.

The ebook is DRM free and is available in ePub format as well as Mobi format for Kindles.
It will remain free through February 7th.
Here’s the description of the book:
The six families of the Clan rule the kingdom of Gruinmarkt from behind the scenes. They are a mixture of nobility and criminal conspirators whose power to walk between their world and ours makes them rich in both.
Miriam, a hip tech journalist from Boston, discovers her alternate-world relatives with explosive results that shake three worlds. Now, as the prodigal Countess Helge Thorold-Hjorth, she finds herself ensnared in schemes and plots centuries in the making. She is surrounded by unlikely allies, lethal contraband, and—most dangerous of all—her family.
To avoid a slippery slope down to an unmarked grave, Miriam must build a power base of her own—with unexpected consequences for three different time lines, including the quasi-Victorian one exploited by the hidden family.
