Book a woman in a white strapless dress calling down lightning

Pale Demon by Kim Harrison is $1.99. This is book 9 in The Hollows series. You'd think after 9 books readers would be tired, but this book has a 4.45 star average at GR, and readers who follow the series said this is one of their absolute favorites in the series.

Condemned and shunned for black magic,Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches’ conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after . . . forever after.

But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

For after centuries of torment, a fearsome demon walks in the sunlight—freed at last to slay the innocent and devour their souls. But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, and in the fight for survival that follows, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

Book a woman with glowing light eyes holding a door closed behind her

Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn is $1.99 at Amazon right now. This is the first book in a new series about a set of sisters who are half human and half Fae, and responsible for keeping demons from invading the world. Some readers really liked it, while others were hoping from more based on the description.

We're the D'Artigo Sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we're savvy–and sexy–operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead.

And me? I'm Camille–a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way…

Camille:

“At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, our fellow operative Jocko's been murdered. Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, bad-ass leader of the Subterranean Realms. He's made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground, turning both Earth and Otherworld into his private playground. Our assignment: keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer. The demons figure they're in like Flynn. After all, with only my 'bumbling' sisters and me standing in the way, how can they miss? But we've got a secret for them: faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D'Artigo girls.”

Book Firelight Sophie Jordan a close up of a girl's face with the skin around her eye scaled like a dragon, and a cat-style pupil with points at top and bottom.

Firelight by Sophie Jordan is $1.99 right now. This is the first book in the Firelight series, which is a YA paranormal/urban fantasy series. I also love this cover because dear gravy, it's beautiful.

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away;if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Book To Walk the Night a woman in a long black leather trench carrying a gun and a sword hilt.

To Walk the Night by E.S. Moore is $1.99 right now. This is urban fantasy – which you likely knew due to the preponderance of leather in the cover model's outfit. This is the first book in the Kat Redding series, and readers state that it's dark and gritty, with a fierce heroine, but has very little to no romance.

Kat Redding is the very thing she hunts: a vampire, thirsting for blood, capable of killing any creature unlucky enough to get in her path. The difference is, Kat kills her own kind in order to protect human Purebloods. She’s good at what she does. Good enough to earn the nickname Lady Death—and the enmity of every bloodthirsty being around. But now a vampire Count is intent on merging his House with a werewolf cult to create a force of terrifying power.

Kat can’t allow that to happen. Even if it means taking on a den of weres and a vampire more ruthless than any she’s encountered before. She has the weapons, the skill, and a few allies.

But that may not be enough to eliminate the Count before her own dark nature rises to the surface—and costs her whatever is left of her humanity…

    I’d been getting a bit fed-up with the Rachel Morgan series, but I really did like ‘Pale Demon’, and felt it was a good return to form.  Something about the road-trip quest narrative really seemed to work well for the writer – she was able to take the most successful of her established characters and chuck them all together in a small space with very good results.

    Witchling is average by itself but it’s the start to a series that I really enjoy. I didn’t get addicted until book 3 but you can’t really read these books out of order or just jump in anywhere. The individual entries still vary in quality but overall, the series is good. I should note that if you like your urban fantasy sans sex, these are not the books for you. There is definitely some adult content, especially in the later books.

    I am very tempted by Firelight but hesitate to pull the trigger because it’s YA. Weird question maybe but how YA is it? Is the story good enough that you don’t notice the intended age?

    @Keslynn—Firelight is bog-standard YA paranormal: First-person present tense? Check! Special Snowflake heroine? Check! Authoritarian society and Parents who Just Don’t Understand? Check!  Swoony Insta-love that never goes beyond Sizzling Kisses? Check!  Love Triangle between Forbidden Good Boy from Enemy Tribe and Hot Bad Boy with Control Issues? Check! Cheesy Cliffhanger Ending?  Check!

    I mean, if you like that sort of thing, it does them pretty well.  But it isn’t going to bust any genre barriers.

    @hapax – I think I’m gonna pass then. Nothing new and exciting; not worth my dough. Thanks for saving me some money.

    Speaking of paranormals, Bitten By Books has just started a list of free and discounted paranormal Kindle reads, updated weekly:

    I wish the individual entries listed the author names, but the sheer volume is impressive.

    It’s not romance, and it probably isn’t happy, but 12 Years A Slave is .99 right now. Thought y’all might be interested, for when you want a heavier read.

    Barnes and Noble has had the 12 Years a Slave ebook listed as fiction for .99 since Thanksgiving. I’d already purchased the hardcover, but fiction? Isn’t it an autobiography?

    Tempted by Pale Demon. I have all the Rachel Morgan books in hardcover so I’m way behind – the hardcovers are too heavy for me lately. But I’m not interested in spending more money on books I already have, even though I love this series.
