Free Book (Kindle) - Map of Bones [Thriller, geo-restricted to US-only]

Map of Bones with Free Excerpt from Altar of Eden by James Rollins, from Harper Collins, is a free pre-order in the B&N store, to be released September 1st, 2010.

Looks like it's another one of those Da Vinci Code-esque religious/archaeological conspiracy-theory thrillers. It's #2 in the Sigma Force series; Altar of Eden seems to be a standalone.

Synopsis
During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks' robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world.

With the Vatican in turmoil, SIGMA Force leaps into action. An elite team of scientific and Special Forces operatives under the command of Grayson Pierce and accompanied by Lieutenant Rachel Verona of Rome's carabinieri, they are pursuing a deadly mystery that weaves through sites of the Seven Wonders of the World and ends at the doorstep of an ancient, mystical, and terrifying secret order. For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time.

You would have to post this AFTER Amazon released the book, right? Already on my Kindle (but a second copy pre-ordered for the additional format).

Thanks.

Sorry, I only found out about it from browsing the B&N forums this afternoon, and posted as soon as I did.

Hey, at least you got yours cheap at Amazon in a format you don't have to strip and convert for Kindle use.

Though mind you, it looks like the Kindle version is a mere 1.59 for Canadians, as is Faye Kellerman's The Burnt House with Bonus Material.

But it seems both sides of the border can get super-cheap holiday romance books: Debbie Macomber's Where Angels Go and Home for the Holidays at 92% off the list price, for 1.30 each, and Patricia Thayer's Montana, Mistletoe, and Marriage at 1.26. All also at B&N for the same: HFtH, WaG, MMM.

There's also huge batch of Christmas Harlequins for 1.19 each if one follows the "Customers Also Bought" links on The Millionaire's Christmas Wish. Though it looks like those latter are short stories/novellas Kindle-ized from print anthologies.

And this strangely non-seasonal Harlequin Intrigue at 1.30: Operation XOXO, which again, leads to a lot of other Harlequins for only a buck and spare change in the Also Boughts. Again, same pricing at B&N if one goes to their Under $5 eBooks section and filters the seach using Harlequin and arranges the sort low-to-high.

I'm kind of wondering if there's any sort of reason behind the discounts, or it's just one of those random pricing whims. At least mainstream romance fans will be happy with all the deals?

Edit: a-ha! Looks like all of those cheap-o Harlequins also have a paperback version being dumped cheaply as part of some promo, and the Kindle prices lowered to match.

Last edited by ATDrake; 08-24-2010 at 04:56 AM. Reason: Had a closer look at the 1.19 Christmas stories. Also, think I figured out the discount reasoning. Plus B&N pricematch.

I've never gotten a satisfactory answer about that either. As a kid I think the best answer given to me was something about conversion on the dollar ['cause books always had the us & canadian prices on the cover or back] but no-one I asked ever knew.

Probably free as an audiobook only for those in US from BooksOnBoard (when I log in, I no longer have this offer and I am in Europe).

Better than free; they credited me with $2.24 of reward balance for downloading it. It says that on the product page, but somehow I didn't believe they'd do it for a free item.

Thanks for the link!

I got the same credit. I'm new to BoB, having just registered two weeks ago. So I have no experience with their rewards program.
