I hate that. Like you said, if you know ahead of time, its different than when you get to the next and then wham.Linjeakel said:Anyone here read the Inspector Sam Blackstone mysteries? They're set in the late Victorian era, mostly in London, but in other parts of the world too and pretty good.
It's a ten book series and I've read the first six and enjoyed them. Then I went to get #7. Up to now they've been available in KU, but I've just discovered that the final four in the series have been released by a different publisher and not only are they not in KU, but the purchase price is more than three times the price of the earlier books.
I'm really frustrated (actually more than frustrated but KB won't let me use that word!). I want to read the rest of the series but I somehow feel more cheated by this than if I'd had to buy them from the start. At least then I could have made the decision not to begin and not get invested. /rant
I've not read that series. Are they not in library at all either? I'll have to check.
eta: Never mind. It says the new ones starting at #7 are published by "Severn House" never heard of them and are not in libraries. Not gonna pay that much so probably won't start the series for the reason you are not peeved off. I mean I never consider KU free, I pay for it. But a series I much prefer to either be all in, or at least affordable if some are not. $8.79 for each bites. They are pretty short at around 200 pages for the 10th and it says published 2013. So yeah, nope.
