Tor’s monthly freebies are available in both ePub and Mobi formats, and they are DRM-free so you can read the ebook on whatever device or app that you choose. They’re going to be dropping the Mobi format option soon now that Kindles support ePubs through conversion, but for the time being you can still get the Mobi version.
Here’s the description for the book:
She lived where the railway tracks met the saltpan, on the Ahri side of the shadowline. In the old days, when people still talked about her, she was known as the end-of-the-line woman.
Vasethe, a man with a troubled past, comes to seek a favor from a woman who is not what she seems, and must enter the nine hundred and ninety-nine realms of Mkalis, the world of spirits, where gods and demons wage endless war.
The Border Keeper spins wonders both epic—the Byzantine bureaucracy of hundreds of demon realms, impossible oceans, hidden fortresses—and devastatingly personal—a spear flung straight, the profound terror and power of motherhood. What Vasethe discovers in Mkalis threatens to bring his own secrets into light and throw both worlds into chaos.
