Yes, I'm sure there is a Kindle version. I got the pocket book because there are something I want to hold in my hands. Also, if I ever get a chance to see Jim personally, I want him to sign it!

Yes, that's the problem with most ebooks put out by traditional publishers. I think they price them WAY too high.

Hope you'll find a deal. emoticon

Re: Books in 2013


I'm going to catch up with the books I read last year before starting my new thread!

Song of the Lioness Series by Tamora Pierce, 1980s, audiobooks

This series started with Alanna and went through 3 more books. I at first thought the audience was intended to be juvenile but the story matter got more serious without the tone, language or style following suit. Alanna takes on different lovers throughout the book, kills people, etc so it is not directed for the very young. But it just felt childish to me in a way. Which is odd as the Wikipedia article says the series was originally a huge tome that was deemed inappropriate for children so was split into 4 and tamed down. I would have loved to read the original one!

Alanna is the first woman knight in Tortal for over a hundred years. She becomes the king’s champion and does thing for the kingdom that make it prosper. Rather formulaic for an adventure tail but readable nonetheless.

The narrator was rather insipid though. Sigh.

The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann, 2012, audiobook

An alternate reality book. In early Victorian England, a rip occurs between our world and the fae world. Fae pour in only to be trapped here and cause a huge war before the English finally subjugate them. Fae and humans don’t mix well, with most of the fae still living in the spot where they first came through – Bath.

The story takes place in Victorian England, in sort of a steam punk world with lots of odd “clockwork” devices. Several changelings have been murdered but no one cares.
Changelings are not what most people nowadays think – they are half fairy/half human. No one cares about the murders because both humans and fairies think changelings are abominations. But one human finds himself thrust into the middle of the bizarre schemes behind the murders. He befriends a changeling and they go on a quest to find his sister who has been taken.

I liked the world that was created and much of the story was interesting. I felt a bit bogged down toward the end though. The narrator kept me going as he was marvelous. The story ends on a bit of a cliffhanger but I didn’t pick up the next novel. I might return to it but it didn’t grab me completely.

I also found out the author was only 19!!! Wow, he has a career in front of him for sure.
