Now that the audiobook edition of Steal from the Devil has launched across all applicable retailers, there are some more details available on price and functionality!
The audiobook can be acquired through these routes:
Retailers set their own prices for the audiobooks, which they base on listening length and market factors.
The audiobook has been produced in line with the requirements for Whispersync for Voice and Immersion Reading, two features of the Kindle/Audible platforms. The former allows you to stop reading and start listening where you left off, or vice versa. The latter allows you to listen while the relevant text is actively highlighted, which is handy for language learners and non-native speakers.

It's here! The audiobook of Steal from the Devil is now available. Narrated by James Highfield, and weighing in at almost 9 hours, this is an all new way to experience the opening of the Armada Wars story.

As mentioned yesterday on the Facebook page, there has been a universal update to all of the Armada Wars Kindle eBooks. The purpose of the update was to:
The new editions are a huge improvement over previous versions, and the eBooks have never looked so good. Read on to learn more!
As previously forewarned, the price changes have now been entered on the Kindle store. Readers probably have 8 hours at most to purchase Armada Wars novels at the old prices, before the new price structure takes effect. This time period is very much dependent on what Kindle region you use.
The new prices are as follows:
AmazonPrime has just been expanded to include free books and magazines. If you have Prime, you can now read all kind of books for the grand sum of £0.00 (thats $0.00 or €0.00, for those of you using funny money.)
Armada Wars books are not currently in the selection of titles, but watch out for them popping up. It's not immediately clear how Amazon will be selecting monthly or permanent titles but as ever time will tell. In the meantime, all the Armada Wars titles can be read for free through Kindle Unlimited!
The roadmap for The Great War of the Shaeld has now been updated to include the covers of From Shattered Stars and the two omnibus editions, as well as the placeholder for Whom Gods Shall Fear.
The cost of the Kindle eBooks is likely to rise this summer, but in the meantime the prices of all Armada Wars novels have dropped today, which includes the pre-order of From Shattered Stars.
The USA now gets novels for $3.99 (still $2.99 for Steal from the Devil), and books that were $5.99 in Canada and Australia are now $4.99 in the respective currencies. Readers in Mexico, Brazil, India, and Japan also benefit from reduced prices across the board.
Because of the lower prices, all volumes which were $1.99 USD via Kindle MatchBook are now just $0.99.
In other news, the obsolescent .mobi file format has been dropped, and replaced with the more versatile .ePub format.

We're aware there are minor errors in the narration and these have been identified for correction as part of the normal process. The audio quality has been dropped slightly to enable use of the embedded player.
