Digital Audiobook (8/16/2021)
The incredible finale of the page-turning, high-octane Sandman Slim series filled with an explosive ending and intense kick-ass action from New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey.
It’s been three months since Stark stopped a death cult and a potential ghost apocalypse, and he’s at loose ends. His personal life is a mess. His professional life isn’t much better. And the world…well, the world is going to shit. L.A. is gripped by a viral epidemic that has everyone wearing masks and keeping their distance from each other. But what’s even more frightening is the Shoggot gang and their leader, King Bullet, who revels in the city’s collapse.
Who is King Bullet? No one knows. He seemingly came from nowhere with nothing but a taste for mayhem and an army of crazed killers who follow his every command. What king wants seems simple on it face: Chaos. Destruction. A city in flames. But there’s more to the king and his plans for L.A. and what Stark discovers will change Heaven, Earth, and Stark himself forever.
Praise For King Bullet: A Sandman Slim Novel…
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The prose simmers with Kadrey’s characteristic blend of cynicism and absurdist humor, but the nuanced character development and exciting relationship-building make this feel like a brave new direction for the series. This addictive urban fantasy works in its own right—and sets things up for what promises to be one hell of a finale.
— Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Ballistic Kiss
"As always, Slim’s humor and action are right at the forefront. Perfect for readers who like their urban fantasy just a little bit over the top, and those missing Jim Butcher's Dresden Files."
— Booklist on Ballistic Kiss
“In the Sandman Slim novels the reader can feel the heat of L.A., smell the smog, taste the carnitas and tamales, and know the joy of finally sliding into the AC and onto that barstool at the end of a brutal, bloody hard day of searching, fighting, killing, and just plain old surviving.”
— New York Journal of Books on Ballistic Kiss
“If this is escapism, it’s the most masochistic kind I can imagine.”
— NPR Books on Ballistic Kiss
“I hope Kadrey keeps putting out Sandman Slim books for the next twenty years. They’re that much fun to read.”
