Part of today’s Kindle ebook deal of the day over at Amazon today is Joe Hill‘s Horns for only $1.99 (thatâ€™s 87% off the regular price of $14). If youâ€™d like to purchase a physical copy of Horns, the book is also available in paperback.
Note â€“ this ebook deal is valid only for today, Sunday, January 27, 2013, until 11:59pm PST.
Although I got the hardcover edition when Horns was first released in February 2010, two days ago, I decided to get the Kindle version and then read 30% of it in one sitting. Yesterday, I recommended Horns to a friend who recently got a Kindle device; he asked me if the book was part of one of those “deals” I always write about, and I said, no, but you never know when it could go on sale. I think I knew in the back of my head that this book was destined to go on sale soon, thanks to the fact that I just bought it (again!) for full price. But, let me tell you – it’s worth every penny I paid and more. This book is awesome. Seriously. Grab this right now for a mere $1.99 and enjoy.
The New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box returns with a relentless supernatural thriller that runs like Hell on wheels . . .
Merrin Williams is dead, slaughtered under inexplicable circumstances, leaving her beloved boyfriend Ignatius Perrish as the only suspect. On the first anniversary of Merrin’s murder, Ig spends the night drunk and doing awful things. When he wakes the next morning he has a thunderous hangover . . . and horns growing from his temples. Ig possesses a terrible new power to go with his terrible new lookâ€”a macabre gift he intends to use to find the monster who killed his lover. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. Now it’s time for revenge . . .
It’s time the devil had his due. . . .
