Kindle First: May 2017

Those enrolled in Amazon Prime have two spec-fiction books in this month’s Kindle First offerings in Emily R. King’s fantasy-romance The Hundredth Queen and Adam Mitzner’s thriller Dead Certain. While I’ve always had hit-or-miss experiences with Kindle First choices, it can be a great resource for finding up-and-coming authors and series to add to your watch list (the excellent Oddfits, for example).
