The vampire slayer is turning into a vampire? Over her dead body.

Dana McIntyre has been bitten by a master vampire. She's infected with the venom. And after killing hundreds of vampires to keep Las Vegas safe, she'd rather die than turn.

There might be a cure. But the only way to get it is through Nissa Royal, a vampire with close ties to the masters of Las Vegas. Nissa is dangerous -- too dangerous to be allowed to live, much less work alongside.

But if Dana dies, vampires win Vegas. If she doesn't die, she becomes one of the bloodless. The cure's her only chance. In this deadly game of hold 'em, Dana's drawing dead, and whatever happens next, there's no changing her losing hand. Dana only knows one thing: If she's going down, she's taking as many vampires as possible on her way out…

Blade and Rose: Books 1-3 Digital Boxed Set: Blade & Rose, By Dark Deeds, & Court of Shadows
by Miranda Honfleur
$0.00, 2210 pages, 4.8 out of 5.0 (28 reviews), #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Historical

This boxed set includes the first three books in the Blade and Rose series, over 2,400 pages of romantic epic fantasy.



A kingdom in turmoil or the love of her life. Which one will she save?

Elemental mage Rielle hasn't heard from her best friend in far too long. Yet no one at the Tower of Magic seems to care about Olivia’s silence, or the curtain of secrecy surrounding the distant capital. Before Rielle can investigate, she's assigned a strange new mission: escort a knight named Jon across the kingdom.

When whispers reveal mercenaries have killed the king, taken the capital, and that no one is coming to help, Rielle can’t leave Olivia in peril. But as infamous mages and deadly assassins hunt Jon, she can’t leave him unprotected either--especially as she finds herself falling for his strength, his passion, and his uncompromising goodness. Her past returns to haunt her, a werewolf stalks their steps, and an ancient evil is gathering, yet the restraints forbidding their love strain and snap one by one.

Saving Olivia and the kingdom means defying orders and sacrificing her every ambition, and could mean losing the man who's become so much more to her than a mission. Which will she choose: her best friend and the kingdom, or the love of her life?

When her gifts make themselves known, Evangeline realizes Whisper Grove isn’t the sleepy little town she thought it to be.
There are secrets buried beneath the picturesque surface, but even the deepest secrets have a way of rising.

Bearing the scars of defeat, Erik must now race to protect his home from the powerful enemies that have declared war on his family. Outnumbered and outmatched he must hold off the advancing horde until help arrives. To fail would bring the destruction of the Middle Kingdom, and all that he holds dear. Meanwhile, Al must finally deal with his brother Threnton, King of the dwarves of Roegudok Hall, if he is to have any chance to restore the Keeper of Secrets and help Erik survive the impending onslaught. Each night brings with it powerful new foes that flock to the warlock’s army as the tides of darkness sweep through the land, yet few allies stand with Erik and his friends. They will have to find a way to band together if they are to have any chance of keeping the enemy from regaining Nagar’s Secret.

There is a much greater threat looming on the horizon that threatens to destroy not only the Middle Kingdom, but all of Terramyr. Worse still, Erik learns that joining forces with Tu'luh may be the only way to prevent the end of the world.

She must venture across the desert, to lands unknown in order to make the bond with her own dragon companion,

But can she survive the cruel wilderness and dangerous creatures that call Saveon and the Kehara Desert home?

Ta-ra! ta-ra! ta-ra-ra-ra! ta-rat!

Professor Krenner took the silver bugle from his lips while the strain echoed flatly from the opposite, wooded hill. That hill was the Isle of Hope, a small island of a single eminence lying half a mile off the mainland, and not far north of Freeling.

The shore of Lake Huron was sheathed in ice. It was almost Christmas time. Winter had for some weeks held this part of Michigan in an iron grip. The girls of Lakeview Hall were tasting all the joys of winter sports.

The cove at the boathouse (this was the building that some of the Lakeview Hall girls had once believed haunted) was now a smooth, well-scraped skating pond. Between the foot of the hill, on the brow of which the professor stood, and the Isle of Hope, the strait was likewise solidly frozen. The bobsled course was down the hill and across the icy track to the shore of the island.

Towards the end of May 1900 the writer received as noteworthy a letter and packet of papers as it has been his lot to examine. They came from a good friend of mine, a Dr A. Lister Browne, M.A. Oxon., F.R.C.P., whom, as it happened that for some years I had been living mostly in France, and Browne being in Norfolk, I had not seen during my visits to London. Moreover, as we were both bad correspondents, only three notes had passed between us in the course of those years. But in the May of 1900 there reached me the letter-and the packet-to which I refer, the packet consisting of four note-books full of shorthand, the letter also pencilled in shorthand, and this letter, together with the note-book marked "I.," I now publish. [The note-book marked "II." has already appeared under the title of "The Lord of the Sea," and that marked "III." under the title of "The Purple Cloud," each in three languages; while that marked "IV." has been judged unsuitable to publication.]

More musing from the author……….

Chapter 6
When I first immigrated to Australia, Aboriginals were not yet citizens and the cultural-clash this caused still exists. For native people to evolve socially in two hundred years when it took Europeans ten thousand is a big ask and all the well-intentioned interventions won’t change that.

Chapter 7
I started flying sixteen years after Danny McAlister’s adventure, but know Townsville and Port Moresby Airports well. The weather is wonderful in the dry-season while it can be treacherous in during the wet.

Chapter 4
A teenager’s first sexual encounters can be awkward and embarrassing and I’ve tried to tackle the issue sympathetically and with tolerance. But, here’s a conundrum for you. In the case of boys an experienced woman may be just what they need to get the ball rolling - forgive the double-entendre - yet for girls an older man may be seen as a sexual predator.
Chapter 5
I fell in love with the Great Barrier Reef when I first went there in 1972 and have often snorkelled and occasionally dived there since then. Despite the latest bleaching, it’s still the most spectacular reef in the world. There is something extra special about sighting your first shark when snorkelling.

What if darkness is your greatest enemy, the light your weapon and your prison? Can a prison ultimately save you?...

Complacent in their protection from the dark realm by the repelling power of an orb of light as enigmatic as the The Shade itself, the townspeople have chosen to forget the evil that surrounds them and the light that is supposed to protect them.

Now, over a decade after his parents' murder, The Shade invades again, taking from him the only love he has left and the only reason he has for remaining inside the light: his wife Esther.

Convinced by a vision and a mysterious relic, Enoch believes Esther's murder may not be all that it seems and her killer the only key to saving her from death. But can it be trusted? To find out, Enoch must escape his town and its holy laws and flee into the forbidden darkness. But will he be able overcome the great evil that awaits him and threatens both worlds of light and dark?

The darkness claimed her. Only the darkness can release her. But at what cost?...

The stranger claims that nothing is what it seems, and a powerful sorcerer believes she is the key to summoning his dark god. Fleeing the enemy's forces, Claire must choose her path. Will she run from her destiny forever, or can she truly claim the awesome weapons of the mythic Architect King, and end the sorcerer's reign of terror?

by Mara Powers
$0.00, 326 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (23 reviews), #xx in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Epic Fantasy
"...had me turning the pages obsessively from the very beginning." Readers Favorite.

Enter the legacy of the legend...
Brigitte has been chosen to renew the treaty between Atlantis and the ancient bloodline of Lemuria. As an emissary of nature, her betrothal would ensure the continued function of the Crystal Grid, the life source of the ten kingdoms of Atlantis. But as Brigitte prepares to leave from her home in the magical Dreamvale, her people are attacked by a storm of shadows. Now she is running for her life.

Upon her arrival in the ruling city of Atlantis, she meets D’Vinid, a dejected musician who lives the quintessential Atlantean lifestyle of revelry, escapism and apathy. Under the eclipse of a sacred festival, they are swept into an attraction they cannot resist. Their union may protect humanity from its worst enemy - the shadows of Atlantis. But there is one problem, this man is not her betrothed.

Brigitte soon discovers that the corruption of the Grid could very well be the Grid itself. Citizens have neglected to attend the rituals required to charge the crystals with their psychic emanations. Some have fallen prey to an epidemic called “the madness”, caused by shadowy parasites that feed off human suffering. But as nature always strives toward balance, the crystals have activated a genetic upgrade among the people. The youth have begun to express supernatural powers. Could it be that D’Vinid and Brigitte are meant to be leaders among the awakened? And if so, why does it seem impossible for them to be together?

A mysterious tale of romance, seduction and betrayal that reaches just enough into the modern mind to ask - will we learn the lessons of Atlantis?

Dreams are not enough. Deeds are needed.

Valya has chased the slave traders stealing her people's children all the way to the very edge of Zem'. She is preparing to leave her motherland behind and descend into the foreign plains beyond the mountains in order to rescue as many enslaved children as she can--until a sudden vision changes everything.

Instead of heading East, she finds herself racing West, back to Krasnograd, where the Empress is in mortal danger. But in order to save the Empress, Valya must keep from destroying herself. With her native recklessness and her newfound magic only very partially under her control, though, she may have finally come across a mission beyond even her considerable strength.

The Dreaming Land III: The Sacrifice is the final book in The Dreaming Land mini-series, and the conclusion to the award-winning Zemnian Series, set in the unique matrilineal world of Zem'. Inspired by Russian history, fairy tales, and literature, this epic series is a subversive examination of gender, sexuality, and reality in the vein of The Mists of Avalon or the Kushiel's Legacy series.

Two and a half years ago, twenty-three-year-old Clara Fallow was found unconscious and alone at the scene of a house fire with no memory of why she had even been at the abandoned property. Clara tries to move on from that mysterious night by spending her days babysitting three spoiled suburban kids, doing her best to ignore their parents’ smug superiority, and suppressing any desire for a better life by partying with her shallow boyfriend. But when a stranger shows up outside of her work gig one summer day, Clara can't deny that he knows something about both the blaze and her past. Too bad the truth isn’t so easy to discern when you’re a girl with more trust issues than your town can boast ears of corn. In rural Campbell, Pennsylvania, that’s a whole heck of a lot. Secrets, strangers, and the supernatural aren't so extraordinary in this sleepy little village. And, as Clara learns, nothing happens by chance.

An allegory about spiritual warfare and the good God who has never forsaken us, WILD DARK is not your mother's Christian fiction.

The fairy tales that make it up aren’t just artificial products though— they’re the result of the creative imaginations of generations of humans all over the world. In this book we shall explore the traditional, age-old stories our ancestors have told us about Mermaids and Water Spirits.

We humans have always been fascinated by the water. It is mysterious as well as nourishing. Now a swift-running, clear brook that gives us life and refreshment on a hot summer day; now a dark, violent sea threatening us with violence.

We can’t control it. And, just like everything that escapes us or exceeds us, we want to understand it.

From this deep craving for discovery, for answers, our ancestors crafted countless stories. These tell us about the inhabitants of the deep, of those who live in the water regions. They are like us, and yet different. They embody the Other whose existence allows us to be ourselves and to love the world.

by P.K. Lentz

Gods will fall as warriors of Asgard, Atlantis & Olympus battle a world-devouring swarm.

Epic Fantasy meets Norse & Greek myth meets Lovecraftian monsters in "a brilliant concept... an excellent mix of fantasy and myth. From start to finish, it just didn't stop--adventure and excitement all the way."

Thamoth and the other Atlanteans raised from the dead alongside him have but one purpose: to fight an unstoppable, unthinking enemy, The Myriad, which has already conquered Olympus. Their leader Ares and the witch Medea may consider the Atlanteans expendable, but Thamoth is determined to save his people and lead them to sanctuary. He will meet a silent slayer of giants and adopt her world as his own. At great personal cost, he will unlock the secrets of his forgotten past. Thamoth's journey will take him to the throne-room of Lord Odinn and down the twisted roots of the ancient World Tree Yggdrasil.

Yet there are troubling signs that the nightmarish enemy Thamoth thought he had escaped will end his second chance at life before it has even begun.

The Path of Ravens is an epic journey that borrows names and places from Norse and Greek myth while creating its own mythology, turning gods into men and women who sweat, bleed, and die to defend what is dear to them.

Edmund Schubert, former editor of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, where three of these stories were first published, writes in the introduction: "One thing about James: he pushes boundaries, and he pushes them hard. ... James's stories require a strong mind and strong stomach. They're freaky weird and hauntingly honest at the same time."

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:

​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.
