A fantastic ending of the series.
A Conjuring of Light - Gustav Schwab

I really loved this book, it was definitely my favorite of the three books, with a gathering of shadows, being my least favorite. I definitely think AGOS, just suffered from dreaded second book syndrome. While this one took me on a journey from the very first page, until the very end. My favorite character was most definitely Rhy.i liked both Kell and Lily, but I don't know if I would have loved the book so much ,if there wasn't my baby Rhy in it. There were a couple of times I wasn't drawn into the story as much as I wanted or thought I would be. But not enough to make me want to give it a low rating. Or to throw the book across the room or anything dramatic as that.

One of my gripes is that I wish the end of the book was tied up a little bit better and I didn't like some of the relationships. I did love Rhy and his love interest. My favorite parts also was when they separated and they all had different things they had to face.

Announcing the release of Alpha Tales 2044

 

 

Alien Vision is proud to present Alpha Tales 2044 - a unique collection of stories and sketches from The Beta-Earth Chronicles.

 

 

 

Alpha Tales 2044, opens on Beta-Earth when two genetically-enhanced mutants are forced to recover a stolen secret, the cure to the ancient Plague-With-No-Name that defined a planet for millennia.
Then we jump across the multi-verse to our earth, Alpha-Earth, where police Captain Mary Carpenter infiltrates a gang of White Supremacists who want to purify Texas after decades of climate change and weaponized plagues.

Still on Alpha, we leap ahead in time to 40 years in the future where Mary Carpenter joins up with four aliens, two from Beta-Earth, two from Serapin-Earth. All four share the same father, The Blind Alien from Alpha-Earth. They’ve traveled across the multi-verse to tell us about their worlds.

But Alphans, scarred by the devastations to our world, are unhappy about learning about very different cultures from anything we’ve ever known and especially hearing about multiple deities. So the alien band are forced to go on the run and take sanctuary in a First Nation domed city in British Columbia.

But their sanctuary doesn’t last long. Forced to travel further into the Canadian wilderness, the family encounters a pair of Sasquatch who change everything for them. They learn about the many definitions of what it means to be human.

Alpha Tales 2044, is a collection of stories that are part sci-fi, part murder mysteries, part horror, and part social commentary. But completely full of the unexpected, surprises, and tales, unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

 

Pre-order now at the special price of $0.99 - 99p

So, this shit happened.

Because the last few months haven't been shitty enough, I went over to Amazon to post my review of Carmilla and this happened:

 

 
 
Apparently Amazon decided to delete 18 years of my reviews from their website with no notice, no warning and absolutely no reason.They also revoked my reviewing priveledges and dropped my ranking from 1,500-something to #55,806,921 over night. You can see my sad, sad profile here. They left up reviews from the year 2000 and older and I haven't a clue why they're still there but I'm guessing they'll disappear soon too. Why'd this happen? I don't write false reviews, I don't inflate review ratings and I don't even know any authors personally unless you count a book signing  I recently went to where I was too shy to speak to any of them!

 

 
I've been told by others who have had the ban hammer of Amazon dropped upon them that it is because someone either flagged my reviews for whatever reason and/or it is because they think I'm having "relationships" with authors. I guess they're so stuck in their own little bubble at Amazon-land that they assume following an author on Twitter and Facebook means you're married. If an author sends you a book to review it must mean you are surely tainted and none of your reviews can be trusted. Apparently, they couldn't be bothered to actually read the text of my reviews because I don't care who you are, if I don't like something in your book, I am telling everyone. Even if you're one of my author wives and husbands and side flings.

 



I have unsuccessfully attempted to get them restored. I sent an email as instructed and received this message well over 48 hours ago:

 

 
Apparently their "should hear back from them" really means never because it's nearly 3 days now and I've heard nothing. Their Twitterhelp desk keeps instructing me to call but I have no fucks left to give and don't want to waste any more of my life talking to any of them. Honestly, after their treatment of me, I no longer want to submit my reviews to them.  18+ year as a loyal customer and free reviewer and they treat me like this? As a result, I will no longer provide Amazon links on any of my reviews going forward on my blog and will instead point people to buying books anywhere EXCEPT Amazon. Small publishers treat you much better anyway adding in extra perks like bookmarks and stickers, at least in my experience. 


So Amazon,

Kindle PAPERWHITE 3 ZNIKA z oferty Amazonu

 

Kindle Paperwhite 3 doczekał się w ostatnich dniach swojego następcy. W związku z tym, ten model był oferowany ze zniżką 30 EUR. Wygląda na to, że został jednak całkowicie wycofany. Obecnie przy wyborze tego modelu, widzimy w sklepie informację o braku dostępności wszystkich jego wersji (poza używanymi, które można do Polski kupić tylko przez pocztowego pośrednika). Taka sytuacja jest zarówno w niemieckim jak i innych europejskich oddziałach Amazonu.

 

Kindle Paperwhite 3 "obecnie niedostępny" (źródło: amazon.de)

 

W polskojęzycznej wersji sklepu pojawiła się dziś informacja:

Przedmiot jest obecnie niedostępny.

Nie mamy pewności, czy i kiedy ten przedmiot będzie ponownie dostępny w magazynie.”

 

Co teraz?

Jeśli jesteśmy więc teraz zainteresowani zakupem czytnika Kindle, pozostaje nam do wyboru Kindle 8 lub Kindle Paperwhite 4. Bieżąca oferta czytników tej marki zawiera także największy czytnik – Kindle Oasis 2. Wciąż nie jest on wysyłany do Polski. Zainteresowanym tym właśnie modelem polecam mój poradnik:Jak kupić Kindle Oasis 2 z dostawą do Polski.

 

Odnowione czytniki Kindle Oasis 2 są teraz dostępne taniej w ramach "Oferty dnia" (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Również nie zakupimy bezpośrednio do naszego kraju jednej z bieżących „Ofert dnia”. To odnowione i tzw. certyfikowane czytniki Kindle Oasis 2 (używane, doprowadzone do stanu fabrycznego). Można je kupić za 169,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 8 GB), 199,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 32 GB) oraz 259,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 32 GB z 3G). Podobnie, certyfikowane Kindle Paperwhite 3 są teraz po 89,99 EUR  (dostępne od 24 XI).

 

Podsumowanie

Obecna oferta dla polskich klientów jest trochę ograniczona. Miejmy nadzieję, że pojawi się w końcu możliwość bezpośredniego zakupu modelu Kindle Oasis 2. A czy w okresie przedświątecznym można liczyć na przeceny Kindle Paperwhite 4 lub powrót taniego Kindle Paperwhite 3? Trudno powiedzieć, ale też ciężko mi sobie wyobrazić okres przedświątecznych zakupów w Amazonie bez takiej oferty :)
