Daily Kindle Bargain - The Weight Of Night by C.L. Stegall

The Weight Of Night by C.L. Stegall is available on Kindle for just $2.99.


Alexis Rain is not your average high school girl preparing for college. She has spent her entire life sheltered from the truth of who she really is: a child of mythological lineage.

When her mother is taken from her without warning, Alexis is suddenly thrown into a whirlwind world of danger and secret agendas, of demigods and deities. When a self-righteous deity decides that Alexis is his best hope for retrieving an ancient artifact, she finds herself on the self-discovery journey of a lifetime, tracking a killer and a kidnapper.

With her best friend Keats in tow, she sets off to make her own destiny. Her path will take her to London, Dagestan and Hollywood. She will have to come to grips with who she truly is, and just what she might be capable of, if she wants to survive long enough to save the one person in the world for whom she cares the most.

The Weight Of Night is a tense, rousing and sometimes humorous coming of age tale involving car crashes, insurgents, walking canes and ancient Greek gods.

From the Reviewers:

"The first few pages were very promising, so I found myself raising my expectations levels even more. By that time the fear had set in; the fear all this build-up will bring me to disappointment. As I kept reading, the build-up increased steadily, and along came childish excitement and the giddy feeling of being a kid again and reading the legends of Olympus. By the time I was done reading it, all that build-up, all that excitement, the entire feeling it gave me transformed into a crystal clear thought: The Weight of Night is a thing of beauty."

"From the beginning this book sucks you in. The characters are relatable, and well formed. It has the Greek Mythology that I love so much but only find with a handful of authors. What was even more nice is that this book took the Greek Myth to a new playing field. C. L. Stegall did not just do the basic gods. Nope. We are talking gods, demigods, and even deities. So Thumbs up on the originality! The writing style, plot/storyline, and even the pace, flowed easy, and seamlessly. The world that this story was built, is just... Wow! It was such an awesome read and I do recommend that you grab this book up."
