A. G. Riddle’s Departure! Last but not least in our 6-deal A. G. Riddle weekend extravaganza!

A. G. Riddle’s Departure! Last but not least in our 6-deal A. G. Riddle weekend extravaganza!

Departure, by A. G. Riddle

This one sounds like Lost meets… some kind of far-reaching conspiracy theory book, but we can only think of Dan Brown right now and we’ve already used him as a comparison. But, hey, if the shoe fits. On the other hand, it might be a little bit Lost meets Richard Feynman. (Nobel Prize winning physicist? We’ll get to him some other time.)

Our point is that the science involved here is more time travel / physics than genetics / biology, but that only excites us even more. Any sci-fi thriller author who branches out into different fields captures our attention for sure, and at only $1.99 right now, this one is the best deal yet.

A. G. Riddle’s Extinction Files series! 2 more sci-fi mystery thrillers to get your heart pumping!

A. G. Riddle’s Extinction Files series! 2 more sci-fi mystery thrillers to get your heart pumping!

The Extinction Files series, by A. G. Riddle

This next series in our A. G. Riddle extravaganza weekend ties together a deadly outbreak and mysterious research lying in a lost submarine at the bottom of the ocean. We bought both of these, too, based on the blurbs and the strength of the Pandemic preview.

Did we read the Genome preview? Of course not! We hate spoilers as much as you do! But we have a feeling A. G. Riddle is going to be one of our new favorite authors, so we picked them both up today, while they’re still on sale.

A. G. Riddle’s Origin Mystery trilogy! The first of 6 sci-fi thriller deals to rev up your weekend!

A. G. Riddle’s Origin Mystery trilogy! The first of 6 sci-fi thriller deals to rev up your weekend!

The Origin Mystery series, by A. G. Riddle

The Guardian has said that Riddle’s books read like a “collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton.” Diana Gabaldon, the author of Outlander, has called them “well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch.” Each of the Origin Mystery titles is only $2.49 this weekend. In fact, all of A. G. Riddle’s ebooks are on sale this weekend, and we picked up every one.

This first series is in development to be a major motion picture. It ties together a mysterious structure hidden beneath the ice in Antarctica,  one woman’s genetic research to cure autism, and a secret society that believes an extinction event is about to wipe out more than 99% of humanity. We love a real edge-of-your-seat thriller series, especially when the science (good, solid science) takes a back seat and lets the characters drive the story. We can’t wait to sink our teeth into this one!

50% off this sci-fi thriller! A million-copy bestseller, now in development by 20th Century Fox!

50% off this sci-fi thriller! A million-copy bestseller, now in development by 20th Century Fox!

CyberStorm, by Matthew Mather

Picked this up tonight after finding the deal and reading the sample. The entire sample. It’s rare that a book pulls us in that hard. The chapters are labelled by date, jumping forward without tedious fillers. November 25. December 8. But there’s no skimping on character development. It’s just brilliantly tight and efficient.

In a few short pages we love the hero. Love the kids. Feeling ambiguous about Lauren. (As we’re supposed to.) Love the neighbors. Except Richard, that is. Truly despising Richard. Any writer who can make us feel this much about so many people in so little time deserves at least one read. At this price, this is the one.

That’s how Hal Spacejock feels about his robot sidekick, Clunk, and for good reason. But just like your computer, there’s one big problem with tossing him out an airlock.

Red Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson

Can a small team of humanity’s finest terraform a planet? Or will their very humanity tear them apart? Arthur C. Clarke called this one “the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written.” We call it thrilling sci fi at an awesome price.

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!)

Get the deal.
