I have just tried using that link and it just dosen't work. It re-directs you back to the Uk site which is of course 2nd June. I think anyone who cannot get it via whispernet on the 31st May should complain as there is NO reasonable explanation why we have to wait two days for ours - it isn't being shipped or couriered!!! Complain to amazon and the publishers.

That's odd. The only thing I can recommend is going to Amazon UK, scroll all the way to the bottom, and pick the Amazon 'USA' link bottom centre (hopefully that gets you to Amazon US site 0_0), go to 'manage my kindle', change your location to a USA based one and try searching again. If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas Sad

Edit: Also, I think there's a way you can edit your default Amazon site to US. Actually, I think Amazon has this thing where they automatically re-direct you to the site closest to the location of your IP address (this might be why the link automatically re-directed you to the UK release page).

Hi MissRia: I´m not sure it helps, but Amazon has a lot of KOS kindle-versions. A lot of diffrent prices and covers. Don´t know why, but some are available at 31.05, some are available june 2nd or later. It made me crazy. But if you choose the one with the first cover (naked male chest and wolf in the corner) for 15,27 US-$ you should be able to get it in a few hours. Hope that helps.

Okay.... I officially stayed up to read the 554 page monster. So that's, uh, 100 pages an hour. My eyes hurt. Shocked

Here's a spoiler featuring the most fascinating character of the book (IMO) - Walker.
Spoiler:
"As she slid an arm around his waist, he said, “Drew said he had lots of sex. Want to do that instead?” He needed to claim her on a fundamental level, to touch and stroke and caress and know that she had come out of the flames of war unscathed."
Lara’s head snapped up. “Now?”
"Yes."
"She grabbed his hand as if to drag him along behind her. “Hurry up.”

Okay, so first impressions (just my opinions Smile ) -
1. KoS is a solid entry into the series, not the best, more in the middle.
2. Walker is awesome.
3. It feels rushed, probably because so much is going on. It borders on choppy because of all of the different storylines.
4. Walker deserves a fanclub. Or a cult. Can I join?
5. The world-building continues to be great. I was a little skeptical of the X ability (it seemed too superhero-y for the series) but by the end of the book I was more than okay with it.
6. Lara is one lucky wolfie.

I've got a question for those of you who've read it -
Spoiler:
What is up with the cryogenics plotlette at the end? It felt out of place....

So, I had a blast reading it and look forward to discussing it with all of you!!

Btw, if any of you know any Walker-like men, send them my way. I'll take good care of him. Promise. Wink

Happy reading everyone

Today is the day! I must visit my bookstore to see if they have the copies yet. Then I have to wait until after work to begin. Wanted to thank all the ladies here who have provided spoilers + support during this long wait!

OK, I got up at 4:30am this morning thinking I would stop by my local Walmart and pick up a copy before I go to work. I am a teacher and the kids are taking finals so I knew I would be able to start reading my new copy of KoS. Three Walmarts and 2 food stores later and no KoS. Sad The waiting has started again! Good news is last final is over at 12:30 and I am so running out to the book store by the school. Now I just have to find the book store.

I happy for the people that have the copy of Kos but, I'm so jealous. I so angry because I ordered my copy from Borders and found out this morning that KoS is currently being back ordered and it could take at least 4 weeks ( maybe more), so I need to find another way to get KoS. Any Ideas about who I should order my book from( I live in the US).

I personally picked up my copy at my local borders...but then online is different from actual physical store (and we all know how they filed for chapter 11 a couple months back). How I wish I could have picked up copies for those who ordered from them. Like Losellers said, try amazon and barnes noble is very good about getting the copies out. Good luck ladies! flower

So, I read Kiss of Snow! Finally!

Thoughts in detail later but putting up a spoiler because I know I'd want one. :-)

Spoiler:
“That pretty little one with the cherry-tinted hair” — he whistled— “where you been hiding her?”

Hawke went motionless.

PS. Dubai is mentioned in the book! That's the city I was born in and still live in. Very Happy

Thanks for the ideas! KTL, usually I go to my local borders store but, the closest ones to me closed down, so that's why I went the online way because it was convenient.
