New on Kindle: December 9th to 20th – Part 1

And lo, there shall be much bookage that follows herewith. I’m splitting all this up into two parts, because there’s just too much bookage.

Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon

Buy: Kindle Store

From the writer of the multiple-award-winning The Yiddish Policeman’s Union and Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay comes a story about two adventurers who decide to aid a young prince in reclaiming his throne during the age of the Jewish Kingdom of Khazaria.

Magic Kingdom for Sale–Sold! by Terry Brooks

Buy: Kindle Store

Apparently the stories of the fantasy kingdom of Landover are starting to migrate to the Kindle backlist. The first in the series, about a lawyer in a rut who comes to be the king of Landover through an interesting deal. Of course, all such deals tend to backfire in the end….

Blade of Tyshalle by Matthew Woodring Stover

You may remember Caine Black Knife discussed on John Scalzi’s Big Idea. The other two books in the series, this and the wonderfully named Heroes Die, are now available on the Kindle.

You can also find his work at Fictionwise.

Star Corps by Ian Douglas

Buy: Kindle Store

They call him Ian Douglas, and he’s penned quite a few military SF books. HarperCollins is making his Legacy, Heritage, and Inheritance (third book of which has yet to come out anywhere) series available for the Kindle.




Goddess for Hire by Sonia Singh

Buy: Kindle Store

She’s a hip California 30-something who’s discovered that she’s the incarnation of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death and destruction. And she needs to save the world while her family attempts to play an aggressive game of match-making, which is the last thing even a goddess of death needs.

Of course, it’s not like she has fans. She does, however, have hateful, murderous fanatics after her.

Endgame by Kristine Smith

Buy: Kindle Store

The Jani Kilian series was featured on John Scalzi’s Big Idea, covering the portrayal of its main character as an alien/human hybrid—along with all the physical and mental difficulties involved.

The series is now available on the Kindle in all its glory:

Deadly Visions by Roy Johansen

Buy: Kindle Store

Finally! A book for the skeptics among us. Joe Bailey partners up—extremely reluctantly—with a psychic as they pursue a serial killer with seemingly supernatural qualities.

The preceding book, Beyond Belief, is also available on the Kindle.

Thunder in the Deep by Joe Buff

Buy: Kindle Store

In the very new future (2011 – 2012), high-tech submarines fight in an imminent world war. And you know what a World War in the 21st century means: nukes. At the very least.

Much of this series is now available on the Kindle, starting with the first book:

Blood Sins by Kay Hooper

Buy: Kindle Store

The second book in a paranormal thriller series: an unholy preacher of the Church of the Everlasting Sin has been killing people in nasty ways with psychic powers, and Haven operative Tessa Gray must stop him.

The preceding book, Blood Dreams, is also available on the Kindle.

Pirate Wars by Kai Meyer

Buy: Kindle Store

Kai Meyer is a successful Young Adult author in his home country, Germany, and his books are now being translated to English. This is the third book in the Wave Walkers trilogy, an epic pirate story that takes place in an immersive and fantastical world.

His other series, Dark Reflections, features a flying stone lion, a girl who’s the embodiment of the Flowing Queen, and her friend with mirrors for eyes, as they travel through a world involving all things Egyptian.

For some reason, some of his books are attributed to, I believe, his translators, rather than him.

Other Kai Meyer books available:

Wave Walkers trilogy:

Dark Reflections trilogy:

Night World No. 1: Secret Vampire; Daughters of Darkness; Spellbinder by L.J. Smith

Buy: Kindle Store

Three books in one. If you loved Twilight, or if you loved the idea of Twilight and hated the actual execution, you may find this series quite eerily attractive.

The entire first book, Night World, is available as a complete free sample. (Don’t pay attention to the 1-star ratings, which complain about how they’re not getting all three books for free….)

To be continued.
