The Choir Boats is a debut, fantasy novel by Daniel Rabuzzi and is available, for free, during the month of July. It is DRM free, thus perusable on any device compatible with PDFs.
The Choir Boats explores issues of race, gender, sin, and salvation, and includes a mysterious letter, knuckledogs, carkodrillos, smilax root, goat stew, and one very fierce golden cat.
One early review described it as, "Gulliver's Travels crossed with The Golden Compass and a dollop of Pride and Prejudice." Another stated that The Choir Boats is, "a muscular, Napoleonic-era fantasy that, like Philip Pullman's Dark Materials series, will appeal to both adult and young adult readers."
The Choir Boats is featured as Wowio's July Book of the Month. It has also been selected by January Magazine as a Top Ten YA Novel for 2009.
