Marcia is Amused.

The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first of the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness, is $1.99 on Kindle today.
I read this during my Y/A binge last year and I have mixed feelings about it - it’s set in the future, on a recently colonized planet, but the technology is very primitive, so that’s an interesting setting. And ultimately it gets into gender and slavery and the fine line between rebellion and terrorism, between leading and dictating, and many other interesting things. It’s very different.
The first two books of this series end on cliffhangers, which pisses me off, but all three books are already out, so that’s nice.
This isn’t really a recommendation, it’s more of a “buy if you’ve been thinking about it because it’s cheap today.”
