Books on Sale: Vicki Pettersson’s Signs of the Zodiac series for 99c Each

Thanks to a tweet from Jaye Wells, I have the heads up that all six books in Vicki Pettersson's Sign of the Zodiac series are .99c today at Amazon, BN, and Apple. That's the whole series for $6 – not a bad deal at all, especially considering that the review average for each book on Goodreads gets higher as the series goes on.


Book The Scent of Shadows - Vicki Pettersson The Scent of Shadows is book #1, and is .99c.

When she was sixteen, Joanna Archer was brutally assaulted and left to die in the Nevada desert. By rights, she should be dead.

Now a photographer by day, she prowls a different Las Vegas after sunset—a grim, secret Sin City where Light battles Shadow—seeking answers to whom or what she really is . . . and revenge for the horrors she was forced to endure.

But the nightmare is just beginning—for the demons are hunting Joanna, and the powerful shadows want her for their own . . .

Book A Taste of Night - Vicki Pettersson

The Taste of Night is book 2, and is 99c at selected retailers.

Equal parts Light and Shadow, Joanna Archer must fulfill a destiny she never wanted. Once a photographer and heiress to a casino fortune, she is now dedicated to the cause of good . . . but susceptible to the seductions of evil.

A deadly virus is descending on Las Vegas—a terrifying plague unleashed by the powerful overlord of Zodiac's dark side: Joanna's father. Chaos and panic grip Sin City as agents of Light fall prey to the terrifying epidemic.

Death reigns supreme—and Joanna stands at dead center of an epic and terrible war long foretold, the last hope of a damned world. But first she must somehow conquer the malevolence that grows all around her . . . and within.

The Touch of Twilight - Vicki Pettersson

The Touch of Twilight is book 3, and is .99c. 

On the surface she's a sexy, sophisticated socialite, at home among the beautiful people of the Las Vegas upper crust.

But Joanna Archer inhabits another world: a place ordinary humans cannot see . . . a dangerous dimension where an eternal battle rages between the agents of Light and Shadow.

And Joanna is both. Stalked by an enigmatic doppelganger from a preternatural realm, Joanna can feel the Light failing—which is propelling her toward a terrifying confrontation with the ultimate master of evil, the dark lord of Shadow: her father.

Vegas is all about winning big . . . or losing everything. To save her friends, her future, her worlds, Joanna Archer must gamble it all by fully embracing the darkness inside her.

City of Souls - Vicki Pettersson City of Souls is book 4 and is .99c

In Sin City, a little girl suffers from a strange and terrible malady. If she dies, the Light will die along with her.

Warrior, avenger, Joanna Archer has survived countless otherworldly terrors—and has found her rightful place among the agents battling the all-pervasive evil of Shadow . . . even as she struggles against the darkness within herself.

A war is raging for Las Vegas—a city without a heart—one that catapults Joanna into a new world hidden from mortal sight. In this lethally seductive alternate dimension the lines blur between good and evil, love and hate, and here lies the last hope for the Light. But Joanna's price of admission is a piece of her own soul—and the odds of her escaping are slim . . . to none.

Cheat the Grave - Vicki Pettersson Cheat the Grave is book 5, and is 99c. I've edited the description a good bit to avoid spoilers from the previous books.

Las Vegas socialite and otherwordly avenger Joanna Archer's former allies are her enemies–and her enemies have nothing to fear. Yet still she is bound to a prophecy that condemns her to roam a nightmare landscape that ordinary humans cannot see and dare not enter. 

And a beast is on her trail–an insane killer blinded by bloodlust, who's determined to rip much more from Joanna than merely her now-fragile life.

Survival is no longer an option in this dark realm where good and evil have blurred into confusing shades of gray–unless she can gather together an army of onetime foes and destroy everything she once believed in.

The Neon Graveyard The Neon Graveyard is the final book in the series, and is .99c. I've edited the description a good bit to avoid spoilers from the previous books. 

Joining forces with a band of rogue Shadow agents, Joanna’s ready to storm the stronghold of her demonic foe, risking everything to enter this ghastly, godforsaken realm.

Because in a world that has stripped her of her power, identity, and fortune, Joanna has nothing left to lose.

    I’ve been searching for a new-to-me urban fantasy series and these sound great!

    All I can think of is the Jim C. Hines/John Scalzi cover battle.

    Ooh, can we play “who is she” for each cover? I’m getting Buffy for Book 2, and Lara Croft for Book 3. Who else? Maybe a little bit of Gabrielle (from Xena) for Book 5.

    It’s dark urban fantasy, with a romantic element mixed in. Which is to say, sorta.

    I couldn’t get into this series and stopped at Book 2 (book 3 is lying around somewhere in my library), but this is a good deal for anyone looking for a new UF series to try.

    That said, I adore Pettersson’s new rockabilly UF series.

    Just a FYI.  I’d liked this series enough to read them from the library.  Their 7.99 Kindle price (same as paperback) kept me from buying them though.  Soooo, I was glad to hear they were on sale.

    I rely on Amazon to warn me if I already own a book and didn’t remember if I had bought book 1 or just read it.  Well, I had already bought it but the title had “with additional bonus material” after the title of the original so Amazon didn’t warn me I already owned it—different titles, different book according to Amazon.  I’d run into this before with some reissues of romance titles and wound up buying two copies.  Sigh. Thought I’d mention it so others can be alert to this.

    I did snap up the others in the series and recommend them if you are in the mood for urban fantasy.  Pettersson is a good writer.

    Yeah, when a publisher puts a book out under a new ASIN instead of updating the previous one you won’t get the already bought it warning.  This especially happens with HarperCollins “bonus materials” Freebie and $0.99 books.

    Totally with you, Charon.  Most of the cover art is very Buffy.  Book 1 could be Faith, or maybe Elektra without the scarf? The last one is like something out of that Neil Gaiman comic I could never get into.  And 4 is…Jon Bon Jovi?

    Ok, I got really excited to find that all of them were available for 99cent, only to discover that ALL of these books are 7.99 for me – in Kindle or paperback!!! I have the first two in paperback, but refuse to fork out more to get the rest. Sigh – why does Amazon do these things to me?? I obviously live in the wrong region!!

    Oh, no, Sabine – where are you located? Canada?
