With the exception of ebook-exclusive titles such as the Nameless series, I don't usually list eBook versions. However, in a first, Amazon released the Kindle version of this title under their "Amazon First Reads" program prior to the release of the first print edition. This led me to decide that it was worthy of inclusion as it is the first version of the book available to the general public. Additionally, ss part of this program, Amazon Prime members were allowed to download the title for free. Downloaders also received a $2-off coupon toward the purchase of any of the previously published Kindle editions of Dean's Thomas & Mercer novels.
