Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire (InCryptid #1) is currently $1.99 in the US.

I enjoyed this, and have bought others in the series, its a fun quick read

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/dis...ncryptid-novel
https://www.amazon.com/Discount-Arma.../dp/B006LU0HNS

Cryptid, noun: Any creature whose existence has not yet been proven by science. See also "Monster."

Crytozoologist, noun: Any person who thinks hunting for cryptids is a good idea. See also "idiot."

Ghoulies. Ghosties. Long-legged beasties. Things that go bump in the night...

The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity—and humanity from them.

Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right?

It would be, if it weren't for the talking mice, the telepathic mathematicians, the asbestos supermodels, and the trained monster-hunter sent by the Price family's old enemies, the Covenant of St. George. When a Price girl meets a Covenant boy, high stakes, high heels, and a lot of collateral damage are almost guaranteed.

To complicate matters further, local cryptids are disappearing, strange lizard-men are appearing in the sewers, and someone's spreading rumors about a dragon sleeping underneath the city...

I'll second that recommendation. I really enjoyed this series and there are lots of short stories (free) on her web site which are set in this series/world.

Thirded, with a note that the initial set of free short stories is both complete and takes place well before the novels. It's an excellent way to sample the world and see how you like it before moving on to the novels.

Amazon UK: The first and last of Mary Stewart's Arthurian series are at £0.99 at the moment. This seems to be a publisher's choice rather than a special offer, but who knows how long they'll stay at this price?

1. The Crystal Cave
5. The Prince and the Pilgrim

I have never even heard of The Prince and the Pilgrim, I have 1-4 as paper books (I think I kept these at least) but didn't even know there was a 5th. Unfortunately it doesn't look like these are available in the US as ebooks. BOOOO!

"The Rise of Renegade X" by Chelsea M. Campbell, 99¢

The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea M. Campbell — 99¢ Kindle Countdown Deal for next 3 days.
Book 1 in the Renegade X young adult superhero fiction series.

The Rise of Renegade X was originally published by EgmontUSA in 2010; subsequent books in the series have been self-published by the author.

Spoiler:
Sixteen-year-old Damien Locke has a plan: major in messing with people at the local supervillain university and become a professional evil genius, just like his supervillain mom. But when he discovers the shameful secret she's been hiding all these years, that the one-night stand that spawned him was actually with a superhero, everything gets messed up. His father's too moral for his own good, so when he finds out Damien exists, he actually wants him to come live with him and his goody-goody superhero family. Damien gets shipped off to stay with them in their suburban hellhole, and he has only six weeks to prove he's not a hero in any way, or else he's stuck living with them for the rest of his life, or until he turns eighteen, whichever comes first.

To get out of this mess, Damien has to survive his dad's "flying lessons" that involve throwing him off the tallest building in the city--despite his nearly debilitating fear of heights--thwarting the eccentric teen scientist who insists she's his sidekick, and keeping his supervillain girlfriend from finding out the truth. But when Damien uncovers a dastardly plot to turn all the superheroes into mindless zombie slaves, a plan hatched by his own mom, he discovers he cares about his new family more than he thought. Now he has to choose: go back to his life of villainy and let his family become zombies, or stand up to his mom and become a real hero.

X-link to the Comics thread and the DRM-free thread for some new bundles:

Humble Manga Bundle Fairy Tale presented by Kodansha Comics contains 45 volumes of the main series and assorted tie-ins for the eponymous popular manga/anime comedic fantasy adventure quest series.

The Epic Elves Bundle from StoryBundle contains assorted themed indie works, if you're interested. And Bundle of Holding has some more RPG gamebooks if you like Arthuriana and/or cyberpunk.

This has just changed to £1.09 for me today. That's a bit cheeky for a monthly deal.

(I put it on my wishlist, assuming I'd have all month to earn it/make my mind up. I check my wishlist every day, and I'm sure it was still 99p yesterday.)

Darn, back to regular price (at least on the AU store.)

However, Orphan Star, another Pip and Flinx adventure is down to 99c now in Australia
https://www.amazon.com.au/Orphan-Sta...dp/B000FBFOJ6/

75c for the US
https://www.amazon.com/Orphan-Star-A...dp/B000FBFOJ6/

And no reduction that I can see on the UK store.
