Books on Sale: Halfway to the Grave Audiobook, Plus Sandman…s. Sandmen? Either Way!

 Book Halfway to the Grave 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.

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.

Book Sandman



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.

    Am I the only one sick of paranormal heroines traipsing around graveyards in stiletto heels? You’re gonna break an ankle…

    @Elyse-I once saw a claim that the leading cause of death for women in horror films is high heels.

    At least the pose she’s in looks non-painful.

    I have the entire Sandman series in Dead Tree edition – they are marvelous! and they will certainly put paid to the ideas that comics are for kiddies only.
    More, they are real art, AND they eschew the porny images and rotten drawing that are the mainstay among most comic artists these days.

    In defense of high heels I was watching a crime drama in which a female undercover cop, wearing heels that looked to be twenty inches high, was being confronted by the mob. When the thugs started coming after her, she booked it in those 20” heels. (Well, her stuntwoman booked it.) The point being if you really need to get away from zombies/vampires/mafia and you’re wearing stilettos, it can be done.

    I took a self defence class years ago where we learned that a stiletto heel jammed into an attacker’s instep can be very effective.  Of course, I would land flat on my behind if I attempted it which kind of defeats the purpose.

    Can anyone speak to hows the art in Sandman renders on Kindle screens? I’d hate to buy a graphic novel and not be able to see the art.

    I don’t think it’s been mentioned here yet but “An Arranged Marriage” by Jo Beverly is on sale for .99, both Kindle and Nook. It’s the first book in her Rogues series and a must for historical fans, imho.

    Thank you Karin!  I love that book and have it in paperback but getting the e-version!

    also: Joan Wolf’s medieval mysteries (with a strong romantic element), No Dark Place and the Poisoned Serpent, are both 99 cents also on the Kindle right now (not sure about Nook).  I love those books and have long wanted a 3rd one (she was dropped by that publisher and never completed a third book).  Hugh is one of my favorite heroes and has a lot in common with her version of King Arthur in Road to Avalon (Road is one of my 2 favorite books of all time, the other being Lois McMaster Bujold’s A Civil Campaign).

    I used to feel the same way about the high heels, then one day I was like “Wait.  You are able to buy into the whole VAMPIRE thing but you have trouble believing a woman would wear heels like that???”  Time was I wouldn’t leave the house in anything under a 3” heel no matter what I was wearing.  I LOVED my high heels.  Every last one of them.  My feet can’t take them anymore, but I’d still be rockin’ the heels if I could!

    Karin says:

    And thank you, elisa!  I’ve read some Joan Wolf but never heard of ‘Road to Avalon”. But if you’re comparing it to A Civil Campaign, I’m on it!

    Karin, I don’t mean to imply Road to Avalon and A Civil Campaign are similar in any way – they’re not.  (Except for really good heroes, I suppose).  Different themes, settings, characters, etc etc.  in fact, you prob couldn’t find 2 more different books if you tried.  But, I LOVE them both, they are my two favorite ever.  So yes I recommend Road to Avalon to anyone, esp if you like the King Arthur legend.  Ms Wolf doesn’t make anyone the villain, just people with very human motivations, some of which lead to tragic but unintentional consequences.  And I love her Arthur and Morgaine.  You know, I just realized something else these 2 books have in common.  Although they do have plenty of plot, both books are very character-driven.  The books are about Arthur and Miles (and everyone else), and they drive the plot, not the other way around.  Both Bujold and Wolf write wonderful characters.  And that’s prob in huge part why I love these books so much.
