All, this is your last chance to get The Way of Kings ebook for free from the iBookstore (with a US-linked iTunes account). This deal only goes through December 31st 2014, so you should hurry up and get it here! (If you don’t see The Way of Kings on that list and you are in the US, use this link instead. In other countries you’ll see different books, such as Robin Hobb’s excellent Assassin’s Apprentice if you’re in the UK.)
