Five great Harper Voyager ebooks on sale!

We’re kicking off the month of October with some great ebook deals for our Harper Voyager titles! If you haven’t had a chance to read these authors, now is the perfect time to dive in — all titles are just $1.99!

DREAMS AND SHADOWS by C. Robert Cargill. A fabulous fairy tale/horror mash-up and brilliantly crafted modern tale from acclaimed film critic and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill — part Neil Gaiman, part Guillermo Del Toro, part William S. Burroughs — that charts the lives of two boys from their star-crossed childhood in the realm of magic and mystery to their anguished adulthoods.

DRAGON KEEPER, Volume One of the Rain Wilds Chronicles, by Robin Hobb. In this enthralling novel, Hobb returns to the territory of her beloved Liveship Traders and Tawny Man trilogies with a story of dragons and humans, return and rebirth, and the search for meaning, belonging, and home.

SECONDS by David Ely. Antiochus Wilson is completely and utterly bored with his life, until he receives the call that changes everything. When the voice on the other end of the line promises him excitement, wealth, and happiness, he is more than a little intrigued.

THE SAVAGE BOY by Nick Cole. Amid the remains of a world destroyed by a devastating armageddon, barbaric tribes rule the New American Dark Age. A boy and his horse must complete the final mission of the last United States soldier, and what unfolds is an epic journey across an America gone savage. Get this ebook just in time for the paperback of THE WASTELAND SAGA, out on Oct. 15.

A KINGDOM BESIEGED Book One of the Chaoswar Saga, by Raymond E. Feist. Midkemia’s fifth and final Riftwar — the devastating Chaoswar — explodes in the opening volume of Feist’s spectacular epic fantasy trilogy of magic, conflict, and world-shattering peril.

Raymond Feist’s Australian Tour

From the 19th-30th June Australia played host to one of fantasy’s biggest names, Voyager’s own Raymond E. Feist! Just in time to celebrate the end of an era with his final Riftwar book, Magician’s End, Raymond toured all over the country, visiting two big conventions, Supanova Pop Culture Expos, in Sydney and Perth as well as events in libraries and bookstores from Brisbane to Melbourne and Adelaide.Supanova is now a truly massive and impressive fan convention attracting big star talents & a wide variety of activities; from cosplay contests to live wrestling matches and talks by authors. As well as Mr Feist we had fellow Voyager authors Kylie Chan and Traci Harding at the Sydney event and Kylie also toured over to Perth. Despite the lousy weather all weekend in Sydney both days were packed affairs with it almost being hard to move at times on Saturday! Another Voyager author, K.J. Taylor, came all the way up from Canberra to attend and she signed a few copies of book one in her latest series The Shadow’s Heir for us to giveaway while she was there!

The massive queue to see Mr Feist!

Raymond had several book signings and meet/greets over at the Kinokuniya Bookstore shop just opposite our own Voyager stand and each had a massive queue that ran most of the way along the wall of the Dome building.  On Sunday Kylie & Raymond were on a panel about creating epic fantasy as well.

Outside of Supanova Raymond visited several stores around the country and was met crowds of  adoring fans wherever he went. Jason Gale blogged about meeting him at Robinson’s Bookshop in Victoria, and in Adelaide the crew at Mount Barker Library put on an AMAZING stage show, including copious amounts of dry ice, dramatic lighting, knights sword fighting in full armour and a whole host of extras dressed up in medeval inspired costumes! They even had special sweatshirts and bottles of local wine made up for the event to give out to attendees!

Raymond was extremely impressed! Mt Feist also stopped by the Sydney offices to sign a mountain of books for stores during the tour and he sat down with Voyager publisher Rochelle to answer a few questions and give us some hints on what may be next … Enjoy!

Great Deals on SF/F e-Books: A Kingdom Besieged & Dead Witch Walking

Today, you can see how Kim Harrison‘s bestselling Hollows series, and Raymond E. Feist’s Chaoswar Saga all began. Harrison’s Dead Witch Walking is available for $1.99 in any format, and Feist’s A Kingdom Besieged is available as Kindle e-books for $1.99!

 

Book One of The HollowsMore info on Dead Witch Walking:

The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the “Inderlanders” reveal themselves, changing everything.

Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland’s best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate.

 

Book One of the Chaoswar SagaMore info on A Kingdom Besieged:

For years following the terrible Serpentwar, the Empire of Great Kesh remained peaceful, but now dark clouds of conflict gather once more. Rumors abound from the Kingdom’s far western borders of spies missing, murdered, and turned. Powerful legions from the Keshian Confederacy are being mobilized, and an attack is all but certain. As his legendary ancestor Prince Arutha did, Martin conDoin, middle son of the Duke of Crydee, must defend the lands against the invaders. But Arutha commanded a mighty army. Martin has only old men and young boys.

Pug, Midkemia’s most powerful magician, fears what is in the wind, for he senses an encroaching darkness whose growing power surely spells his world’s end. And soon the Kingdom’s enchanted defender will find himself questioning everything he’s ever held true and dear . . . including the loyalty and desires of his beloved son, Magnus.

Raymond E. Feist’s new novel, A CROWN IMPERILED, on sale today!

Thirty years ago, Raymond E, Feist wrote his first novel, Magician—a story about an orphan boy named Pug who travels to a place known as the Kingdom of the Isles to study wizardry from the Master Magician Kulgan—that set him on a long bestselling track. Now after 28 books (authored and co-authored) we are in the midst of the final Riftwar, an epic series of battles between Good and Evil that have ravaged the land of Midkemia for generations.

Pug—now the greatest magician of all time—faces an evil so grave that entire armies of demons are terrified by it, and in order to save Midkemia and preserve the honor of the legions of heroes who have died defending the land, Pug must risk more than he ever imagined…
