Walmart has entered into a price war with Amazon and the nation’s book retailers, lowering prices on certain highly anticipated hardback titles to $9 (£5.49).

The retailer listed prices for some upcoming hardcover releases, such as Dean Koontz’s Breathless and Stephen King’s Under the Dome at $10 (£6.10), which was answered with a similar price cut by Amazon. The two retailers then lowered the prices even further to $9.
