Dead Witch Walking is $1.99. This book 1 in Kim Harrison's The Hollows series. There are about 13 books and a bunch of novellas in the series now. If you were thinking about starting the series, grabbing book 1 on sale is a good opportunity! This is a paranormal urban fantasy series, and the heroine, Rachel Morgan, is a certified bad ass.
All the creatures of the night gather in “the Hollows” of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party…and to feed.
Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining – and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.
A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead…or undead.
The Outlaw Demon Wails is book #6 in the Hollows series, and is $2.99. I don't advise that you jump from book 1 to book 6 – reviews indicate this is a series that builds through each novel – but if you're looking to grab the books at low prices, $2.99 isn't bad. Also: I was pretty proud of myself when I figured out that the title is a pun on The Outlaw Josey Wales.
To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic.
And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.
If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.
But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line…and there are some lines that should never be crossed.
Deadly Sting, book 8 in Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin series, is $1.99 for the month. The Elemental Assassin series features another bad ass heroine, Gin Blanco. This book was published in April 2013. This is another series where it helps to read the prior books, but if you've read the Elemental Assassin series and were waiting for a price drop on the latest book, woo hoo! Enjoy!
Red is definitely my color. Good thing, because in my line of work, I end up wearing it a lot.
Most people shy away from blood, but for an assassin like me— Gin Blanco, aka the Spider—it’s just part of the job.
Still, it would be nice to get a night off, especially when I’m attending the biggest gala event of the summer at Briartop, Ashland’s fanciest art museum. But it’s just not meant to be. For this exhibition of my late nemesis’s priceless possessions is not only the place to be seen, but the place to be robbed and taken hostage at gunpoint as well. No sooner did I get my champagne than a bunch of the unluckiest thieves ever burst into the museum and started looting the place.
Unlucky why? Because I brought along a couple of knives in addition to my killer dress.
Add these to my Ice and Stone magic, and nothing makes me happier than showing the bad guys why red really is my color.
The Overland Chronicles Book 1: Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games is $1.99 this month at Amazon. Most retailers price match the monthly Amazon deals within a few days, so if your preferred retailer hasn't dropped the price, they may do so soon. This is book 1 (as indicated by the title) in Collins' Underland Chronicles series, which is for middle grade readers. This is an urban fantasy series with some very solid reviews.
When eleven-year-old Gregor follows his little sister through a grate in the laundry room of their New York apartment, he hurtles into the dark Underland beneath the city.
There, humans live uneasily beside giant spiders, bats, cockroaches, and rats, but the fragile peace is about to fall apart.
Gregor wants no part of a conflict between these creepy creatures. He just wants to find his way home. But when he discovers that a strange prophecy foretells a role for him in the Underland's uncertain future, he realizes it might be the only way to solve the biggest mystery of his life.
Little does he know his quest will change him and the Underland forever.
