Maplecroft by Cherie Priest for $0.99 plus shipping. I overpaid.
This book is not good. The monsters are not scary. The characters are flat. It is all just a lot of predictable, boring, by-the-numbers crap. Brief periods of action are frequently interrupted with long-winded expository whining. Don't bother unless there's absolutely nothing else to read. And even then: meh.
Priest is good writer but her talents are wasted here.
