[quote=""Misfit""]I wasn't as bowled over as the other reviewers were. It was good, but IIRC there I had some issues with the POV used and because of that I dropped it down to three stars. I'd have to go back to my original review to see, but I'm still waking up and too lazy.[/quote]

Thanks, I wound up buying it because I liked the sample. We'll see what I think at the end!

I also wound up getting Daughters of the Witching Hill and I started it yesterday, but I haven't gotten too far yet. I saw some really bad reviews of Physick Book of Deliverance Dane which scared me off. I'll have to investigate that one a bit more.

Retailers now have control of HarperCollins' ebook prices. Thousands of Kindle books have been reduced in price - not to "bargain" levels but apart from a few upcoming and brand new releases, they all seem to be under $10. Here's all historical fiction Kindle books from HarperCollins but I don't know if it includes imprints:

"Immortal Duplicity" free sample on Kindle

Post by DanielAWillis » Tue October 2nd, 2012, 8:06 pm

Immortal Duplicity, the 2nd book of my Mage series, will be published in the spring. But you can have a sneak peek at the first two chapters for free.

Immortal Duplicity Excerpt

In additon to the adventuresome spirit and historical fantasy aspects that permeate the Mage series, this volume will look closely at the age-old issue of racism and how it applies when the differences are also between species as well as ethnic groups.

Starting off in 1864 Colorado, in the days leading up to the Sand Creek Massacre, the adversarial lives of nearly immortal twins will come to a thrilling conclusion in the heart of Nazi Germany.
