Halfway to the Grave is today's Audible Deal of the Day. It's performed by Tavia Gilbert, who has outstanding reviews for her audiobooks. It's also unabridged, so that's 11 hours and 17 minutes for only $3.95 today!
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership.
In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon, Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers.
Now Cat will have to choose a side…and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.
The Sandman: Volume 1, Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman and Sam Kieth is today's Kindle Daily Deal at $2.99. This is a collection of issues 1-8 of the Sandman series (which is still on sale individually – see below).
In PRELUDES & NOCTURNES, an occultist attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. After his seventy-year imprisonment and eventual escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power.
On his arduous journey Morpheus encounters Lucifer, John Constantine, and an all-powerful madman. This book also includes the story “The Sound of Her Wings,” which introduces us to the pragmatic and perky goth girl Death.
As I noted earlier this week, the entire Sandman comics series by Neil Gaiman and Sam Kieth is .99c each for Kindle.
If you have the paper version and would like a digital version for your tablet reading pleasure, or for easy portability and re-reading, .99c each is lovely (there are 110 of them, though, so be warned!).
The first issue of the first volume of Neil Gaiman's horror/fantasy epic! An occultist accidentally traps Morpheus, the embodiment of Dreams, and holds him for 70 years.
Finally free, Morpheus seeks his lost objects of power and rediscovers his place in the universe.
