Daily Deals: Quiver and Vegas Bowling


Today Amazon offers a masterful debut thriller about the original female Dracula and an underground gothic cult reenacting her ritualized killings in present day London. The name of the book is Quiver and it was written by Holly Luhning. Today’s price is $1.99.
In sixteenth-century Hungary, Countess Elizabeth Bathory tortured and killed over six hundred servant girls in order to bathe in their blood. She believed this practice would keep her skin youthful and her beauty immortal.
Quiver tells the story of Danica, a forensic psychologist who works at a former insane asylum-turned-forensic hospital. One of Danica’s mental patients is Malcolm Foster, who is imprisoned for murdering a fourteen-year-old girl. Foster is a menacing but fascinating patient and Danica begins to suspect that Foster may have been the head of a gothic cabal idolizing Bathory. Her peers dismiss her discoveries, while disturbing incidents begin following her home from work.
Soon after her arrival in London, Danica receives a mysterious note from Maria, a seductive archivist with whom Danica has had an intriguing and complicated past. Maria claims she has Bathory’s diaries that chronicle her relentless torture of young women. As Maria increasingly insinuates herself into Danica’s life, soon Danica is in too deep to notice that Maria’s motivations are far from selfless; in fact, they may just cost Danica her life.

Forensic psychologist Danica Winston suspects her patient, murderer Malcolm Foster, may be the leader of a gothic cabal idolizing 16th-century Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who killed girls to use their blood in beauty treatments. Winston’s peers dismiss her theory, but disturbing, work-related incidents soon haunt Winston’s personal life, solidifying her suspicions.


Vegas Bowling

Within Daily Deals Amazon offers to get Vegas Bowling which is a game for your Android device for free.

Hungry for cash, and sick of hustlin’ the same sad folks of the Vegas Strip casinos, these savvy swindlers have taken their game to the North Las Vegas bowling alleys looking for some easy strikes. It’s time to play Vegas-style, physics-based finger bowling on your Android device.

10-pin Hustlin’

Lace your multi-colored loafers and shine your ball, this isn’t just for recreation anymore. The ball will appear at the end of the lane when it’s your turn. Pull the ball back and release it to throw the ball. Pull back further for a faster throw. To throw a curve ball, pull back and flick forward to the left or right–but mind the gutters.

For a curve ball with more precise aiming, move the ball all the way to the right or left. When the ball is spinning fast enough, move it back to the middle, pull back, and release. Alter the weight of the ball to your liking. Heavier balls don’t go as fast but pack more of a punch when they hit.

Strikes and Spares

Like standard 10-pin score-keeping, you get two shots at knocking down all 10 pins. Earn a strike, and get another turn. Your total score is the same as how many pins you’ve knocked down. After each turn, you’ll get to view your scorecard.

The sounds and graphics create the pleasant illusion that you’re at a real bowling alley, with the exception of league-tees and beer bellies.
