Free Ebooks for April 18th, 2012

Good Morning, Guv'nors:

  What can be better than reading a book on such a fine day: whether in your genre of choice or experimenting with something new? Well, reading a book for free sounds even better, doesn't it? At least, I think it does. And with so many books to choose from, it is impossible to purchase them all! Therefore, I did a little scrounging and located some Kindle ebooks that are free today! So take advantage of the wonderful offers and peruse something new. You never know what gem you may find. (Note: These are not listed in any order - other than the randomness that guides me). Just click on any of the images for the link to that particular book. Beneath each picture is a description to further your decision. Enjoy~

By: D.P. Prior
Genre: Fantasy/Short Story
Description: When the wolf-men attack and the companions are split up, Nameless and Ilesa find themselves marooned on an island at the centre of a newly formed lake. With the dwarf unable to swim, and a monstrous serpent patrolling the water, it’s down to Ilesa to get them back to shore. But can she be trusted, what with the bounty on Nameless’ head and her long history of betrayal?

Nils’s cat burgling past comes in handy when he takes to the trees to avoid being eaten, but it soon becomes apparent the wolf-men are the least of his worries. Someone, or something, is watching him from the depths of the forest …

Meanwhile, Silas hides below ground in a giant burrow and draws upon the dark knowledge of the Liche Lord’s grimoire to keep him safe. But how much credence should he give a book that promises everything?

By: David Wisehart
Genre: Fantasy
Description: Devil's Lair is a fantasy novel set in Dante's Inferno.
A medieval knight leads a quest through Hell to recover the Holy Grail from the Devil.

The knight, Marco da Roma, is joined by: Giovanni Boccaccio, an expert on Dante; William of Ockham, an English friar; and Nadja, an epileptic with the gift of prophecy.

As the Black Death sweeps through Europe, these unlikely heroes confront the Devil—and their own demons—to forestall the Apocalypse.

By: Aron Christensen and Erica Lindquist
Genre: Fantasy
Description: He is not the hero they remember. This is not the world he knew.

Thirty years have passed since the bloody battle of Njorn Pass, since Rikard Mazrem traded his life away to the Alterra to save his dying men. Defeat became victory and an empire was born. For decades, the people of Carce have revered Rikard as a hero.

But now Rikard has returned to find the world changed. Or perhaps he is the one who has changed...

By: Jason Tesar
Genre: Fantasy
Description: THE HISTORY: Over five thousand years ago, a renegade faction of angels abandoned the spiritual realm and began their inhabitation of earth. Worshiped as gods for their wisdom and power, they corrupted the realm of the physical and forever altered the course of history.

THE PROPHECY: Amidst the chaos of a dying world, a lone voice foretold the awakening of a warrior who would bring an end to this evil perpetrated against all of creation. But with the cataclysmic destruction of earth and rebirth of humanity, the prophecy went unfulfilled and eventually faded from the memory of our kind—until now!

THE AWAKENED: The physical dimension is fractured. What remain now are numerous fragmented worlds moving simultaneously through time, sharing a common history, connected only by a guarded portal. On a parallel earth, in the city of Bastul, Colonel Adair Lorus disappears while investigating the death of an informant, triggering a series of events which will tear his family apart and set in motion the resolution of an ancient struggle. Kael, sentenced to death after rising up against the cruel leadership of his new step-father, is rescued from prison and trained in the arts of war by a mystical order of clerics. Excelling in every aspect of his training, Kael inwardly struggles to give himself fully to the methods of his new family, or the god they worship. Maeryn, bitter over the disappearance of her husband and supposed execution of her son, fears for her life at the hands of her newly appointed husband. Finding comfort and purpose in her unborn child, she determines to undermine his authority by reaching out to an underground social movement known as the Resistance. After being forced from his home, Kael’s former mentor, Saba, uncovers a clue to Adair’s disappearance. Sensing a connection to his own forgotten past, Saba begins an investigation which leads to the discovery of a secret military organization operating within the Orudan Empire.

In book one of his debut series, Jason Tesar delves into the heart of an ancient legend, embarking on an epic saga that will journey from earth’s mythological past to its post-apocalyptic future, blending the genres of fantasy, sci-fi, and military/political suspense.

By: C.R. Daems and J.R. Tomlin
Genre: Fantasy
Description: In a remote mountain valley, a scout is tortured and killed in a brutal rite of summoning. An army of demons will soon be on the move. Fellow scout Jessup Inntour wouldn't care very much if the empire he reluctantly serves is attacked, but the woman he loves is another matter.

Tamra Dervon, Captain of the Guard of Wayfare Keep, thinks her biggest problem is her love affair with Jessup. The scout is holding things back from her, and she doesn't know what. But when the seemingly unbeatable army of demons invades, Tamra's personal problems look very small. Tamra and Jessup find themselves leading a last-ditch defense. Their army is defeated. Jessup disappears in the retreat. As Tamra continues the struggle to defend her homeland, she discovers that another duty lies ahead -- to face a demon horde alone.

Have a wonderful day, dear World! Until next time~

    Thank you for visiting! I like to promote fellow authors when I can, and no one can beat a free book. I hope you find one you enjoy.


  3. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this. The Awakened sounds really good. BTW, I found you on Twitter and love your tweets. They stand out in the constant overflow of twitter-spam. :)


  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! I love learning about new books! I'm going to look for The Scout and The Serpent. That one looks good!
    Have you gotten any yet, and started them? What do you think of them?

    A Bit Unlikely,

  5. Welcome, Andrea and Miss Baillot!

    Andrea: It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Aye - Twitter is indeed filled with spam. I'm glad I could 'lighten' the flow for you. :)

    Miss Baillot: Isn't it wonderful to discover new books? I find my list of 'to-reads' is impossible to whittle down... but all the better, I say! So far, I have my eye on "Devil's Lair" and "The Awakened", but I have not yet started either one. I hope to find some time soon! Let me know what you think of your selections.

    Thanks for visiting~

    Be well,
