Kindle Countdown – Yew to a Kill

Last month, I had a Kindle Countdown promo for Disk of Death, the first book in the Shannon Wallace series. Did you get it? It is the lead in to the series, and so fast and funny, you are missing out if you don’t get it!

I love reading book series. Mystery, romance, thriller, sci-fi, or fantasy. doesn’t matter to me. I am avid about them. But I’m beginning to feel like after the third book, the writer is trying too hard to keep things rolling.
