Mates (Claws Clause Book 0)
by Jessica Lynch
$0.00, 88 pages, 3.9 out of 5.0 (9 reviews), #12 in Romantic Fantasy (Kindle Store)

Maddox is a wolf on the hunt.


Paranormals exist.

More than fifty years ago, the community of supernatural races—shifters, vampires, ghosts, witches, and more—revealed themselves to the humans. With the rise of technology, they couldn’t stay hidden in the shadows like they had for centuries. And, while rumors of their existence go back even further than that, the announcement sent shockwaves throughout the rest of the world.

After the shock wore off, the humans reacted. Knowing that Paras had the strength, the humans struggled to keep the power. And what better way than to grab a Para by the balls?

Ordinance 7304: the Bond Laws. A set of mandates hurriedly put in place that Paras had to follow, especially when it came to their "fated" unions.

The laws kept the peace. When the penalty for breaking one was being thrown in a magic-free prison, they had to. Ordinance 7304—also known as the Claws Clause—keeps the Paras in line and gives the human population an illusion of safety. And why not? With the power of the entire government behind the laws, even an alpha wolf loses some of his strength.

Because one of the biggies? When a shifter finds his fated mate, it doesn’t matter what his nose—or his body—says. His instincts might scream mine, but that doesn’t mean he can run off with his woman and claim her. To the humans, that’s kidnapping, and it’s a big no-no.

Maddox Wolfe understood that… until the day he stumbled upon Evangeline Lewis and knew in an instant that this was the woman he’d spent twenty-six years waiting for. And while his wolf says take her, he knows he can’t woo his mate from inside of the Cage. She’s human, so he has to think like a human. Act like a human. Pretend he’s a human.

Whatever it takes to make her his mate. And since he is an alpha wolf shifter, there’s gonna be a little stalking involved. It’s okay. His human will eventually understand.


Mates is a prequel novella (~20k words) that is set directly before the first Claws Clause book, Hungry Like a Wolf (available for pre-order now, releasing on July 26th). It is the story of how Maddox and Evangeline became mates, and is an introduction to a brand new paranormal series where Paras exist and live alongside humans. There's some heat to it (and some closed-door action), some profanity, and is intended for adult readers.

Burdened with the curse, Keira sets out to find a way to break it, but she’s not alone. The Hallister brothers promise to help her break the curse and they each vie to win her affections. Their journey takes them all over southern Ireland, speaking to elves, sprites, leprechauns, and witches, taking in the scenery and enjoying hot nights together.

As the spell breaks away, Keira finds her heart entangled. She loves and wants each of the Hallister brothers.

Can the elves be taught to share? Or will brotherly quarrels break up the best thing she’s ever had?

8/10 from Fantasy-Faction.com
"Emotionally stirring scenes that flourished with dark and powerful action, to deep political intrigue, there wasn’t a dull moment throughout."

4/5 Stars From www.bookwormblues.net
"The Stone Road is an interesting personal journey, as well as a rather surprising political one... Matthews does a great job really delving into the psychology of his characters. He keeps the cast small enough for them to be memorable and intimate, yet large enough to allow readers to really explore this world he’s created, as well as the intricacies of it. There are a lot of surprising twists and turns."

Fantasy-Faction Book Club - Book of the Month, June 2016
"G.R. Matthews has taken two of the best things ever created: fantasy novels & Kung Fu movies, thrown them together into a blender and left us with something wonderful."

Everyone knows a family who lost a son to the war. It has to end. But on both sides of the conflict, there are those who value revenge more highly than peace.

Zhou of Wubei is assigned to negotiate the peace. At last, the recognition he's craved will be his. There are obstacles in the way and the offer of an end to thirty years of war may not be as genuine as it first seemed.

Huang, a soldier of Yaart, is trained to be a Jiin-Wei; a spy, warrior, magician. His orders are clear; ensure the diplomats of Wubei sign the treaty and, by doing so, seal their own destruction. War presents the chance for honour and glory, but the reality is nothing like the stories he's been told.

The city is bad. The swamp is worse. But Madam Spew, she’s the worst.


Dark Priests… Power-Mad Paladins… Chosen Heroes…
The swamp city of Cesstern swarms with them all. It invites them in with open arms before biting down, coiling round, and stifling them tight. But these aren’t tales of the connected, the powerful, the heroic.
These are the tales of lowborn villains. One, in particular.
Madam Spew was born to nothing. She had nothing. Was nothing.
But it didn’t take.
Through wit and sin and sorcery, Madam Spew rose above the city’s indigent scum to become a priestess in service to the Black Temple.
One of Grimnir’s chosen, Madam Spew does what she must, no matter how low the task, how dangerous, how disgusting. And Madam Spew is always game.
Behind a shiltron of meat shield and mercenary, through black magic and guile and back-alley fisticuffs, she gets it done. But always, for a price.
Read ‘Swamp Lords’ to find out what that price is. Then go take a shower, you filthy blackguard. You’re gonna need it.

"Everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply, deeply satisfying. I loved it."—Lev Grossman on The Ruin of Kings

You can have everything you want if you sacrifice everything you believe.

Kihrin D'Mon is a wanted man.

Since he destroyed the Stone of Shackles and set demons free across Quur, he has been on the run from the wrath of an entire empire. His attempt to escape brings him into the path of Janel Theranon, a mysterious Joratese woman who claims to know Kihrin.

Janel's plea for help pits Kihrin against all manner of dangers: a secret rebellion, a dragon capable of destroying an entire city, and Kihrin's old enemy, the wizard Relos Var.

Janel believes that Relos Var possesses one of the most powerful artifacts in the world—the Cornerstone called the Name of All Things. And if Janel is right, then there may be nothing in the world that can stop Relos Var from getting what he wants.

And what he wants is Kihrin D'Mon.

Download a FREE sneak peek of Knight of the Silver Circle by Duncan M. Hamilton—the sequel adventure-packed fantasy to Dragonslayer in The Last Dragonslayer trilogy—perfect for fans of magical beasts and unexpected heroes, from the author of the beloved Society of Sword and Wolf of the North trilogies!

Three dragons wreak havoc throughout Mirabay—eating livestock, killing humans, and burning entire villages to ash. It was nearly impossible to kill one, using a legendary sword and the magic of the mysterious Cup; to tackle three, Guillot dal Villerauvais will need help.

The mage Solène fears having to kill again; she leaves Gill to gain greater control over her magic.

The Prince Bishop still wants Gill dead, but more than that, he wants the Cup, and he'll do whatever he has to to get it, even sending his own daughter—a talented thief and assassin—into the dragons' path.

As secrets mount on secrets and betrayals on betrayals, both Guillot and Solène face critical decisions that will settle not only their own fate but that of all Mirabaya.

2. Knight of the Silver Circle
3. Servant of the Crown

Tales of Terrene Wold: Book 1, Bayar Lai and other tales
by Jacquelyn M Sleeman
$0.00, 966 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #97 in Fantasy Anthologies & Short Stories (Kindle Store)
This is the first edition of this book. Once I get the cover art it will be removed and replaced with the new art.
Tales starts with the story of Morgan, who has been tasked by his mother to kill his brother, who killed not only their mother but their race. His memories of his brother, however, are ones of love and he can't do it. Now, he has no choice, will he be able to do what must be done, or will he die instead.
The second story is of the quest afterwards, with those who survived the end of the first book heading out to find some lost people.
All of the rest are tales of the children of those in the first two stories. I hope you enjoy reading them all, and get to know the characters well enough to want to read more about them.

After receiving troubling visions of a fearsome dragon and a mysterious magic sword, a devout and chivalric knight sets out on an arduous quest across a rugged austere land to find that ancient weapon and to free the land of the dragon's tyranny. On the way, he makes friends and enemies, learns of prophecies and deception, faces mobs and monsters and gets both help and resistance from unlikely sources. All the while, his young squire is coming of age and seeks to be not just a knight in his own right, but a special breed of knight called PALADIN. When it all comes down to knight vs. dragon, the knight finds himself in a paradox: He must get the sword to slay the dragon, but he must slay the dragon to get the sword. Then, as if facing a dragon alone isn't challenge enough, he finds he must take on an even more powerful threat...

Paladin is a moving, captivating and allegorical tale set in a richly textured land of monsters, magic and intrigue. It is the story of the people of three great races coming together to overcome terror, adversity, overwhelming forces and odds stacked against them, a sword-and-sorcery fantasy adventure where colorful characters face not only the challenges of surviving in this peril-fraught world, but moral dilemmas as well. Through several adventures and escapades, they also grow mentally, physically and spiritually. One man, with a little help from his friends, must find within himself the leadership, compassion and fortitude to survive fantastic Varzuun.


Web of Deceit
by Linda Colin
$0.00, 365 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #217 in Sword & Sorcery Fantasy eBooks
Web of Deceit weaves a story steeped in deception, murder, and betrayal and encompasses a cast of characters against the background of two empires on the verge of war. Fraught with tension, it captivates and entertains at every turn of the page.

Had Jedith Pen Saer not been so trusting of Helda Penim, she would not have found herself betrayed, abducted, and denied the position of High Uden over an elite troop of royal guards. Awaking aboard a nefarious ship and suffering a severe blow to the head, Jedith’s amnesia hinders her from remembering who she is, but when she kills a would-be rapist with her bare hands, she gets her first inkling of the warrior she truly is. Sold into slavery, Jedith is unwittingly caught up in the political ambitions of a warlord and his general and the domestic upheaval between a father and his daughter while bits and pieces of her memory reawaken her identity and plans for her escape take form.

With Jedith out of the way, Helda’s treachery has awarded her the coveted position of High Uden but not the trust of her queen. Fearing discovery, she kills her two accomplices, unaware the murderous act is witnessed by one soon to become her blackmailer. Tormented by this new threat, Helda schemes to kill again, but this time, the opportunity is fraught with peril under the watchful eyes of a suspicious queen.

Her attention divided between preparations for an invasion and her search for the truth behind Helda’s involvement in Jedith’s disappearance, the queen’s faith in her son is sorely misplaced and could lead to her downfall. Sent on a mission to spy on the enemy, the prince has other intentions. Having no qualms in betraying his mother for the throne of his father, he has only to convince the enemy of his trustworthiness and that the strategic and military information of his mother’s fortifications are forthright.

Guardians of Sky and Shadow Box Set

One priestess, four guardians, a prince in hiding and a winged cat. Two worlds in peril. Over 200,000 words of reverse harem epic fantasy!

My world isn't safe. The northern gate lies open and monsters roam the land. Towns are locked behind walls, protected by the emperor and his Black Army. Once, a fated priestess and her four guardians kept the gate sealed with magic, but there hasn't been a priestess in over a century...or so I thought.

When a monster attacks me within the walls of my village, I am saved by Sir Forrest--the quiet former soldier who came to Istim three years ago.

Turns out, he's been watching me. Waiting for my powers to awaken.

I am the fated priestess.

But there have been others. The genius commander Abel and the Black Army have killed them all. Sir Forrest found out the truth, and now he is driven by his sacred mission to help me find my guardians and bring me to the gate.

All I have to do? Find them and join with them in the Grand Quintet to grant them the powers I apparently hold, close the gate, and save the world...without suffering the same dire fate as the priestesses who came before me.

I've always liked attention...but this is too much.

Contains:
Book One: Priestess Awakened
Book Two: Priestess Bound
Book Three: Priestess Unleashed

Notes and Tips


I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.

I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.

The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.

If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.

If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.

The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.

Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.


Free book searches on Amazon

Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:

Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.

From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.

Those same searches with a keyword:

Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.


Reddit Groups

There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


eReaderIQ

The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.


BookBub

The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.


Galaxy Magazine

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date

​They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online.​ Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.


Overdrive

If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.


Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.


Notifications

Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
