UPDATED: BBA Alert (Was Preordered)

Sideswiped - Kim Harrison

UPDATE August 2016:  In light of Kim Harrison sending fan hordes to get a negative review of The Drafter on Amazon downvoted off first page  -- she's now on my do-not-buy and BBA list.  Yes, I realize she has a book about the Turn and Trent's origins coming out that fans of the Hollows series, like I was, are dying to read -- but I will not be buying that one either.

A 99¢ 50-page ebook prequel to September's The Drafter, start of a new series The Peri Reed Chronicles, from Kim Harrison set in a futuristic Detroit.  If trying to find on most sites from some reason you'll need to search by the isbn = 9781501134241 because title and author fail for whatever reason.

 

I'm a fan of the author but not sure if this is a series for me. Futuristic, urban fantasy, paranormal elements = sure; law enforcement = not so much; too near a future = not so much; comparing itself to suspense and thriller books = definitely not for me. I still have book hangover from her The Hollows (Rachel Morgan) series which I did get addicted to after beginning good-but-nothing-blew-me-away books I read via library loan because friends ranted about and because I loved her fantasy books written as Dawn Cook. It's possible I'll read this and think "gotta have it" even at hardcover prices or "nah..." (then after hearing everyone else loving later books I'll start it up at paperback prices or library books until hooked like I did with the now beloved The Hollows books).
