Here’s the book description:

Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and increasingly bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer extraordinaire, is trapped in a twisted and broken body – not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers. Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain, shallow, selfish and self-obsessed, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men. And Logen Ninefingers, an infamous warrior with a bloody past, is about to wake up in a hole in the snow with plans to settle a blood feud with Bethod, the new King of the Northmen, once and for all – ideally by running away from it. But as he’s discovering, old habits die really, really hard indeed. . . especially when Bayaz gets involved. A bald old man with a terrible temper and a pathetic assistant, he could be the First of the Magi, he could be a spectacular fraud, but whatever he is, he’s about to make the lives of Glotka, Jezal and Logen a whole lot more difficult…

Listen up, readers!

Phoenix Pick has revamped their monthly book deal. The new system is a pay-what-you-want deal. So, you can still get the book for free, but if you feel like ponying up some dough for the entertinment, there is now a mechanism to do so.

Phoenix Pick’s new Book of the Month is Reboots by Mercedes Lackey and Cody Martin!

About the Book:

Space travel is tough. No air, cosmic radiation, absolute lack of other life-sustaining essentials.

What better way to deal with space travel than to man ships with creatures that regenerate or don’t need air, or are immune to various maladies?

In a future world where zombies, vampires and werewolves co-exist with ‘normal’ humans on Earth, these ships are staffed by a motley crew of various types of undead or near-dead creatures.

Of course no one really knows what happens when zombies and vampires are squeezed together in the close confines of a spaceship.

Don’t you love surprises?

Mercedes Lackey is a New York Times best selling author with over 80 books in print. She is well known for creating complex multi-cultural worlds inhabited by human and non-human characters. Her acclaimed and best selling series of books related to the Valdemar saga takes place in the intricately woven world of Velgarth. To date there are 27 novels and six anthologies set in this world, and many of these books have become New York Times bestsellers.

Readers may download this book for free or for a nominal price of their choice from April 2nd to to April 30th. So grab it now!

Phoenix Pick continues their free eBook promotion this month with The Woods by Stephen Leigh!

About the Book:

There is a certain magic growing up with life-long friends. The charmed existence became almost dream-like with two young boys growing up in a small neighborhood surrounded by an old, dense forest.

But what happens when fantasies start becoming all too real? Grotesque and bloody rites give rise to a fey and magical girl who threatens to destroy the last remnants of the boys’ idyllic childhood existence…whose mere presence may set the jealous boys at each other’s throats.

Hidden among the trees they know so well, Rob and Mark confront a grim, violent solution to their problems. This is a story of choices, a tale where the wild, romanticized dream-scape of youth intersects the gray world beyond, where fantasy collides and merges with reality.

“I was blown away by The Woods…The magic in this story is both beautiful and disturbing… Leigh’s prose is elegant, his plotting tight, his character work outstanding.” – David B. Coe, Crawford Award-winning fantasy author

As part of Orbit’s Orbital Drop eBook deals, you can get Mur Lafferty’s The Shambling Guide to New York City for only $1.99!

Here’s what it’s about:

A travel writer takes a job with a shady publishing company in New York, only to find that she must write a guide to the city – for the undead!

Because of the disaster that was her last job, Zoe is searching for a fresh start as a travel book editor in the tourist-centric New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position though, Zoe is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can’t take off her resume — human.

Not to be put off by anything — especially not her blood drinking boss or death goddess coworker — Zoe delves deep into the monster world. But her job turns deadly when the careful balance between human and monsters starts to crumble — with Zoe right in the middle.

Grab it now so you’ll be well-prepared for the upcoming sequel, Ghost Train to New Orleans, hitting bookstore shelves on March 4th.

Between January 8th and 15th, you can get the box set of Expatria by Keith Brooke for less than $1.

Here’s what it’s about:

Available for the first time in a single volume: the Expatria duology (two full-length novels).

Book one:
The descendants of Expatria’s first colonists from Earth have rejected technology. When Mathias Hanrahan, heir to the primacy of Newest Delhi, wants to reintroduce the old ways he is framed for his father’s murder and forced to flee.

Recruited by a research team which is trying to relearn the ancient technologies, he goes to work for them, and against a background of impending war, Mathias discovers that strange messages are coming from space.

Book two:
For Katya Tatin, a passionate believer in and employee of the Holy Corporation of GenGen, the opportunity to join the mission to the recently rediscovered colony of Expatria is much more than a chance to spread the gospel. For her, it represents a break with the past on Earth, with the Consumer Wars and the subversives who seek to undermine the standing of the Holy Corporation itself. It offers a chance to reconfirm her faith.

On Expatria itself, and on the ancient arkships that orbit it, the news of the impending arrival of a mission from Earth further complicates an already murderously complex web of religious and political intrigue. For some, it looks like salvation from a backward-looking, superstition-ridden society; for others, it looks suspiciously like an invasion.

This deal won’t last forever, so grab it now.

Free eBook: THE GARDEN OF THE STONE by Victoria Strauss

Phoenix Pick continues their free eBook promotion this month with The Garden of the Stone by Victoria Strauss!

About the Book:

At the heart of the Fortress lay the Garden.

At the heart of the Garden lay the Stone.

It was a living entity of power beyond understanding–not even by the men who had used its energies to control the unGifted masses, ever since the wrenching cataclysm that shattered the union of Hand and Mind and split the world centuries ago. Then came Bron, his arrival long foretold, destined to restore the balance between Hand and Mind. But Bron had other plans. He stole the Stone…and vanished.

Now Bron’s daughter Cariad, a powerful empath and skilled assassin, must follow the footsteps of a father she has never known, into the depths of the same Fortress. Waiting there is Jolyon, her father’s deadly enemy, a man whose thirst for domination is matched only by his taste for blood…and who possesses the power to satisfy both appetites. Cariad must learn the secret of Jolyon’s strength before it is too late. For just as her father’s arrival was prophesied, so too is his return. And this time Jolyon is ready–for Bron to die.

Today only, you can get Soulless, the first book in Gail Crarriger’s Parasol Protectorate series, for only $1.99.

Here’s what it’s about:

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire — and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

SOULLESS is the first book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

Get it for $1.99 today only at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or iTunes.

Fiction Bundle Service Launches with Science Fiction Bundle

Fiction Bundle is a new bundle service, launched today, that’s billing itself as “Humble Bundle of fiction eBooks”:

Our intention is to provide a service featuring works of fiction which appeal to a wide array of readers, while allowing them to donate a portion of their proceeds to worthy charities in addition to their support of talented authors. Each of our bundles will feature a similar format of six to eight works of fiction by various authors, with a minimum purchase price of $6 USD. Each purchase will split primarily between the authors and a worthy charity or charities based on values of the purchaser’s choice. Our intention is to provide a service featuring not only works of fiction which appeal to a wide array of readers, but to engage consumers of such material to allow them to donate a portion of their proceeds to worthy charities through their purchases. We believe that our bundles will be a great source of exposure for veteran and fledgling authors alike.

Each bundle will contain 6-8 fiction works of certain genre(s), which are DRM-free and available in up to 3 formats (MOBI, ePub and PDF). The bundles will have a minimum cost of $6 (USD) and will feature 2 or more “closed” books which can be “opened” when a purchaser beats our payment threshold – most likely $10 USD.

Their premiere bundle includes the following science fiction eBooks:
