83% off Gears of War Aspho Fields – the military sci-fi prequel to the blockbuster games!

Gears of War Aspho Fields, by Karen Traviss

$1.99 Kindle Sale ($11.99)

Gaming. Yeah, we’ve dabbled. From Tuesday raids in World of Warcraft to Friday clan nights in Call of Duty, there’s nothing like fighting the good fight with 5 to 40 of your best friends chilling in voice chat. But if you watched any of the E3 broadcasts this year, you’ll know there are few fandoms as enthusiastic as the Gears of War crowd. Gears 5, Gears Pop!, Gears Tactics… the screams just kept coming. Gears readers will be glad to know the franchise is producing books as fast as it is gaming titles. If not faster.

Aspho Fields is the official prequel, which has us pretty stoked. We’ve always been suckers for backstory. Action and danger are so much more powerful when you’re invested in the characters, and that’s just as true for games as it is for books. Imagine how much richer the gaming experience would be if we went into it knowing the characters inside and out already. How much more thrilling the victories, and how much more heart wrenching the losses. Sounds intense, right? We think so, too, and now’s our chance to find out.

Pick up Gears of War Aspho Fields for just $1.99 for a limited time!

The Brilliance Trilogy: all 3 sci fi thrillers are more than 60% off!

$1.99 Kindle Sale on each book!

Gillian Flynn, the bestselling author of Gone Girl, called the Brilliance series “Ridiculously good.” That’s what we think about this sale. All three books are each just $1.99 on Kindle for a limited time. It’s been on our TBR ever since it came out, having been nominated for the Edgar, Lovey, Sideways, and Prometheus awards. Yes, all of them.

It’s a little bit X-men in the premise, promising plenty of excitement, and the world building is impressive, with news stories and ads from Sakey’s alternate universe scattered throughout the pages. That’s the kind of immersive reading experience we absolutely love–setting the best sci fi books above and beyond–and at this price, you won’t find a better time to try it.

(Pro tip: buy them all at once, and you’ll save another ten percent!)

Altered Carbon only $2.99 – the book, and our take on the Netflix series

Altered Carbon, by Richard K. Morgan

$2.99 Kindle Sale ($11.99)

We discovered this story through the Netflix series, Altered Carbon, which is probably different from the book in a lot of ways. (Isn’t it always!) Still, we were impressed by the series, and we fully expect to feel the same way about the book–a New York Times bestseller–which we just bought for less than the price of a cup of coffee. (We might not live in the age of immortality yet, but you sure can’t beat the entertainment.)
