In a previous post, I told you about the Super Sample Amazon offers from time to time (click here to read that post from early February). After putting out half a dozen or so during February, Amazon seemed to stop the practice: I was surprised as, based upon the number of clicks from the blog, those super samples were very popular – it gave you more than the few pages Amazon will let you download as a free trial, which supposedly lets you make a better buying decision in the “try before you buy” scheme of things.
With that preamble out of the way, Amazon has what I term a super sample in the young adult genre for free available right now in the Kindle store with Rick Riordan’s The Kane Chronicles, Book One: The Red Pyramid Chapter Sneak Peek! You can pick up your free copy of this super sample by clicking here.
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
In this sneak peek first chapter download, get a first look at The Kane Chronicles, Book One: The Red Pyramid, a new series of adventures from Rick Riordan, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. About the Book: Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a “research experiment” at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives. Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them–Set–has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe–a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
