Is everybody recovered from Thanksgiving yet? I know going back to work today was real rough for me! But Cyber Monday helps that out a bit – browsing the internet for a good deal is always fun. Here are some books from Amazon’s Cyber Monday Kindle Daily Deal that we like, or have reviewed here on the blog.

As some of you may know, I’ve got a thing for Serial Box. We’ve had them as a guest here on the blog, and we’ve reviewed some of their urban fantasy serial, BOOKBURNERS. So I’m always excited when they have new content, and some free content at that, and I love to share it with you! Here’s what they’re up to over there in recent weeks. Season three of TREMONTAINE started in October!

I’ve been interested in how this series ends since the first volume of DEMON, but the fourth and final volume didn’t really live up to the potential I felt it had. Gory and violent, the story seems to devolve into a question of what can kill the most people the fastest.
After the cliffhanger that was the ending of ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT, I couldn’t wait to find out what happened with Charley and Reyes in THE TROUBLE WITH TWELFTH GRAVE. As the series progresses, the stakes in each book are raised and THE TROUBLE WITH TWELFTH GRAVE is no exception.
The description for A POISON DARK AND DROWNING covers what happens in maybe the first quarter of the book – and it’s better that you don’t know what happens later. Like the first installment in the Kingdom on Fire series, this book is full of emotional ups and downs that left me reeling (in a good way) and desperate for more.
Once you get past the cover, Cross’ third installment in the Vampire Blood series, THE WHITE LILY is a sexy adventure with two protagonists you can’t help but root for.
I was drawn to DEVILS & THIEVES by the unique mashup of motorcycle clubs and magic, and while I had a few issues with the book, the motorcycle and magic combo did not disappoint.
It’s been a long while since we’ve done a DNF post, so we’ve got quite a few (and some a bit older…) in the queue to share today! See all the DNF posts Secondhand Souls (Grim Reaper #2) by Christopher Moore Last First Snow (Craft Sequence #4) by Max Gladstone Gray Widow’s Walk (Gray Widow Trilogy Book 1) by Dan Jolley Mercury Striking (Scorpius Syndrome #1) by Rebecca Zanetti Veiled Magic (Veiled Magic #1) by Deborah Blake
Being very familiar with (and loving) fantasy books set in England’s Regency period, I absolutely had to read MURDER, MAGIC, AND WHAT WE WORE. And luckily, I was not disappointed! This book is a fun example of this genre, and was a cute, quick read.
