Lunar Court, by Aileen Erin

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think this one was my favorite yet!!! How do they just keep getting better???

Cosette is a fey princess–a flaming-sword wielding, kick butt and take names later kind of fey princess who wants nothing to do with the fey Lunar Court but is bound to it by blood. Chris is a werewolf with a battered childhood. Controlled by the moon, he can’t be bound to the Lunar Court without becoming a slave.

They can’t be together, but they can’t deny their feelings. So when an Archon tells Chris there might be a way to break his lunar tie, Chris enters the fey Court of Gales, an underground world of double-talk and corruption that reminds him far too much of his own troubled past. He would do anything for Cosette. Anything. But that’s easy to say when you don’t know what “anything” might mean…

A Robin Hobb Dragon Classic! Just $1.99 for a limited time!

The Dragon Keeper, by Robin Hobb

She had us at dragons.

They’ve returned to the Rain Wild, but they’re hatching out weak and deformed, unable to fly. The once-magnificent beasts are too dangerous to keep, too important to kill. So a rag-tag team is chosen to take them back to their fabled home upriver.

These human strangers don’t know where they’re going. They don’t even know if they’ll survive. But they have one chance to make a difference—to save dragonkind from a world that has forgotten its past—and they have to try.

Welcome back to Pern! New book in just 5 weeks! (Aka I beg for books and have strange interactions at the post office.)

Remember that authorAnne McCaffrey? The one who made me (Erin) decide to become an author? The one I couldn’t talk to without sobbing?

(You might know her better as the Anne McCaffrey who’s in the Science Fiction Hall of Famethe SFFWA Grand Master, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, winner of the Robert A. Heinlein award for lifetime achievement as a fantasy and science fiction author… Right, that Anne McCaffrey. But I’m sure the bit about what she means to me personally is on a card in the SF Hall of Fame somewhere.)

Okay, so her daughter, Gigi McCaffrey, is releasing a new Pern book in OctoberDragon’s Codeand I’m so excited I can’t stand it. (Imagine a thirty-minute pause here while I tried and failed to find a gif showing how profoundly excited I am. I’m not a gif connoisseur, apparently. I did, however, spell ‘connoisseur’ correctly on the first go, which surprised me and made me feel a little better about the whole gif thing.)

Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch

$1.99 Kindle Sale! ($9.99)

It’s true. Sara Raasch started writing Snow Like Ashes when she was twelve. Want proof? We hunted down a video of the author holding up the first hand-written draft and took a screenshot. She reads a page from it in the video. We’re convinced. (Isn’t she adorable, btw?)

The decade she took to build this world shows in its magic. And in its politics. We found one reviewer who wrote down all eight territories, along with their rulers and their “conduits” (i.e. special magic items), just to keep them straight. To make things even more complicated, four of the conduits can only be wielded by men, and the other four by women.

(Wait. Is that determined by biological sex or by gender identification? Dunno. We haven’t read it yet. We just now bought it on sale. That’s how we find these deals. We’re actually shopping for ourselves and then telling you about it. Probably because we don’t have enough friends.)

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

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!
