Not exactly a special deal, but an interesting find for $.99 (free for Prime members). The Last Casquette Girl, an old 1981 from Pinnacle. I spotted it on a list at GR and had to nab it. GR listing with the original cover.

[quote=""Mythica""]Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel are $4.99 each.[/quote]

Thanks! For those with a Nook or other ereader, if it's for sale on Kindle, it's usually for the same price on Nook. I already had Wolf Hall, but picked up Bring Up the Bodies today for the $4.99 price.

Paths of Exile by Carla Nayland - £1.02
Moon in Leo by Kathleen Herbert - £1.02

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
Location: California Bay Area

I have read The Passing Bells. It was excellent -- very much in the style of Downton Abbey, but with more WWI scenes.
I also got We, the drowned, some time back when it was a Kindle deal. DNF.

The Passing Bells is very good, as is the sequel. I DNF the last book in the trilogy (the names of those two books escape my feeble brain at the moment). A couple of interesting freebies this morning.

Excellent! Passing Bells was on my watch list because I heard it was Downton-esque so I snatched it up when I saw it was on sale. Glad to hear it is indeed in the style of Downton!
