Sun of Suns is Tor's newest free E-book

Tor's current free book is Sun of Suns by Karl Schroeder. Here is a short synopsis of the story from Schroeder's website: Imagine sky above, sky below, infinite blue to all sides peppered with cloud, randomly floating spheres of water and chunks of soil - and you flying free of gravity. This world is Virga, a tale of revenge, betrayal, treasure maps, sword-fights and boarding parties, yet set in a world where fish fly and where young, bitter Hayden Griffin zips around on a wingless jet engine mounted with a saddle and handlebars. Hayden’s bent on revenge for the deaths of his parents, but the man he’s targeted is a prominent admiral who hires Hayden as a flyer on a dangerous and possibly illegal trip into the darkened corners of Virga–the empty places collectively known as Winter.
