Thanks for the tip on this one. I was wondering about this series, and just grabbed it for 99 cents.
Great thread this ive picked up soom excellent books for cheap or even free pity i dont have a kindle and have to use the cloud reader
Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey can be bought for $2.99 for both Kindle and from B&N. Keep in mind that this e-book comes bundled with an e-ARC of Abraham's The Dragon's Path, so you are getting two books for $2.99.
That's an absolute steal, I paid £13 for each one.
Snagged it thanks to Peter's enjoyment of it and this free book. Hopefully it will be good and then I'll happily pay for the other two.
Thanks, just bough it. Been meaning to get back to SCi-Fi for a long time and I like everything Abraham's done so far; hopefully I'll like this one too even though it's only "half" him.
Is it really the "whole" book of Dragon's Path and not just a few sample chapters? If it is the whole book then yeah that's an incredible deal.
Never mind - answered my own question - it does appear to be the whole book - Nice!

Thanks for all of the information on the discounted books. Also, I just finished reading the first two Riyria books, enjoyed them a great deal and have the next volume coming from Amazon. Good work!
In addition to the ones listed above, Angry Robot books is having a rather large $2.99 ebook sale. Too many books to list individually, though. But you can find them in the Kindle store and the Nook store. Or just visit angry robot and buy directly from them.
I also regularly list fantasy related ebook deals on my blog (usually several times a week), if you like this sorta thing. I sometimes list mystery/thriller/espionage deals, too.
I've always enjoyed your blog Jeff, in all its incarnations. Now that I've got a Kindle, I make sure to visit it everyday since you are so on top of the discounted/free eBook deals.
Thanks, Rob! I feel like the blog has turned into a new release and ebook deals blog the last 6 months. Hopefully in the upcoming year I'll be more active on the review front (especially if I add music reviews). Sorry for the off-topic post, just wanted to say thanks for the plug.
I'm a bit lost as to how to get this on my iPad 2 (with Kindle app)for free. I am at the Amazon page that clearly lists it as 0.00 for Prime members, which I am, but the only options on the right side of the screen are to buy it for $5.95, or sample the beginnining of the book free.
Can anyone tell me what I'm, missing here? I would realy like to pick this up. Thanks for any help with this.
Most (but not all) of these free ebook offers are time-limited, usually for only 24 hours. The Resnick book is no longer listed as a free offer.
The link I just atached shows it as still free to read for Prime members, but I can't determine how you do that.
Jaim, sorry I missed the part about you being a Prime member. According to the Amazon site, the borrow-for-free option for Prime members is only available for reading on a Kindle device. It isn't available for reading on any of the free Kindle apps such as for the iPad.
Thanks for the clarification, Whiskeyjack. And congratulations for grabbing one of the most hallowed names in Fantasy fiction for your nom de plume.
Question about two of these books - can I read "Rides a Dread Legion" without having read any of Feist's other books, or will I be missing out on necessary backstory?
Similar question for Hobb's "Dragon Keeper"...the description on Amazon.com refers to it as "an absorbing extension of her Liveship and Tawny Man trilogies". I have never read anything by Hobb; will I be confused without reading the aforementioned trilogies first, or can I start with Dragon Keeper?
I think you can start with Dragon Keeper if you really want to, but I think the Dragon books work best for people who already have read the others and liked them. I don't think there's as much there for people who don't already actively like the setting and what's gone before with that story.
I guess that's a short way of saying that if you want to try Hobb, I think it would be best if you started with the Assassin books.
