Nightworld Academy: Term One
by LJ Swallow
$0.00, 270 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (272 reviews), #2 in Teen & Young Adult Magical Realism eBooks

Welcome to the Nightworld Academy, attended by vampires, shifters, and witches. A place filled with harmony and mutual respect between the supernatural races. Sometimes.

I'm told my curse is a gift. A valuable one that could cost me my life.

My visions of the future are weird, but my new school is weirder. All lessons take place in the evening and the majority of students are on an advanced program where they take extra classes late into the night.

I enrolled at the academy because my last school expelled me for punching another student. Nobody believed that I knocked Tyler unconscious to stop somebody else dying. But why would they believe the crazy girl?

I expected to meet other troubled teens here, but the pupils are predictable for an English boarding school. There's Ash, the rugby team captain and the academy’s most popular guy. Then there’s Andrei, the moody guy with a bad attitude who takes pleasure in annoying me. And Jamie who’s studious and friendly but intense.

I thought I had the academy figured out: the mean girl, the quirky friend, the nerd, the emo, and the jock. But on the evening I swear allegiance to my new school house, everything spins out of control and I realise I’m dealing with more.

Much more.

One of us will die, and I know who.

Term One is the first in this new upper YA/NA series of magic academy books. The main characters are eighteen and older and this is a slow burn RH. As the series is set at a school in England, the books are written in British English.

by Marilyn Messik
$0.00, 358 pages, 4.5 out of 5.0 (44 reviews), #79 in Suspense (Kindle Store)

Forced to call on resources she didn't know she possessed and thrust headlong into the violence of a situation for which nothing could have prepared her, Stella’s suddenly face to face with the stark reality of medical experimentation and its horrifying consequences.

But in a world of uncertainties, she’s sure of one thing - this hero stuff really isn't her. Normal, or as near as damn it is what she wants, and if that means smothering her instincts and adjusting her expectations well so be it. At least she'll know should she slip off the wagon occasionally, it'll be choice not chance, and to suit herself.

Isn't it a fact though, just when you think you've got yourself on track, events can overtake and derail you?

Relatively Strange, the first in the Strange Series introduces Stella; her irreverent sense of humour, the conviction she always knows best and an overdeveloped sense of justice. Throw into the mix a complete inability to keep her nose out of other people's business and some serious psi abilities, and results are as unpredictably uncomfortable as you might expect.

Who knew accidentally setting fire to a tree would end up being the precursor to a series of what I would call 'unexplainable events.'

Well it did. Within the blink of an eye my life went from ordinary to extraordinary.

Turns out Hell really does exist, and two of Lucifer’s most loyal warriors—Azazel and Balthazar—just happen to be in my hometown.

Like you’d expect, the brothers hate each other, constantly bickering and fighting. But after witnessing one of their epic duels, something changed inside me, as if watching their rage consume them triggered my own.

Now I can’t control it. The anger. The hate. The burning need to unleash my rage on those who have done me wrong. And the deeper I delve into the supernatural world, the more I start to feel like I have this undeniable link to the underworld.

Even though Azazel and Balthazar vowed to keep the darkness from consuming me, I’m afraid not even the Princes of Hell will be able to stop it.

$0.00, 168 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #1363 in Paranormal & Urban Fantasy (Kindle Store)
"Eleanor trudged up the broad marble staircase of the Newton Public Library. The weather was dreary, and so was her mood. She had no idea what she was going to do with her massive inheritance. Not only was the building itself falling into disrepair, but also the catalog was outdated, and only a sparse following of patrons remained loyal to the old system of borrowing physical books. Society had progressed by leaps and bounds in the years since Eleanor's grandfather had opened the library. Most everything could be found online these days, and print books were becoming a distant relic of the past."

What becomes of Eleanor and her library? Grab a copy of this gem and find out. Eleanor's Library is a wonderful book that will capture you right from the start and keep you reading. To inherit a library could be a dream come true, but the rest of the story takes that dream to the next level!

The Pillar

Dear Cate, I write this with my left hand so bear with me if my handwriting is a little ugly. I don’t know where I am and I have a sinking feeling I’m not coming back soon. I read the poems you left under your bed and I never took off the bracelet, Hail and I have gotten close since you last spoke with him. This world isn’t much different from ours, I would say it’s prettier, but you’re not here, so that’s impossible.
Sometimes I look up at the sky and wonder if you’re still in that place, I wonder what you’re doing, who you’re talking to, and if you were next to me, what we would talk about. I cry more nights than I care to admit. I also wanted to apologize, I guess it’s a bit late for that now, and I cannot do anything about it so – Sorry.
Since that last day in the village I’ve traveled the world in your place. No one knows who I am here, every person I help asks my name, as if that matters. I tell them what you told me when you introduced yourself, with the same intonation and I try to force out a smile as big as yours. I think they’re all smart enough to see through my deception.
Even now I’m staring at a vast ocean and wishing I could take a few steps and sink to the bottom forever. Some days are harder than others. Even if by some miracle you find this, time… works differently here. I think I’m like you, I can’t die from natural causes, but so much time has passed, I wonder if that even matters now. How about this, you don’t hang on the noose, and I won’t float in the ocean, deal?

“The trolls ran gleefully through the forest. They were jumping over fallen trees, ducking under brambles and giggling in their high-pitched little voices. Orion, the tall thin one, peeked over a huge rock and with his wriggling fingers by his head, said “BOO”.
When the girl wasn’t there he got a stricken look on his face, scurried away and continued his search. When LivIanna was sure she was out of sight she ducked into a small cave and got quiet as if her life depended on it. And it did.”

‘Ashera’s Demons’ is about a college aged girl who wakes up one day in the big city and decides that the life she is living is not the one she wants. Going back to her roots, the horse ranch where she grew up, she finds that everything has changed. Here her life is turned upside down on a daily basis but she embraces it and lives life to its fullest. During the course of the story she finds that people are not always as you envision them. Some are better and some are much worse. People change, as do circumstances, quite regularly, it seems. Even with all of this considered she excels at living life to its fullest. There is, after all, a bright side to every cloud. This story is action packed, witty and fast paced.

For years I’ve listened to tales of the forest, how it protects us, blessing our village with peace and harmony in turn for a simple offering.

It’s said to be a great honour being the chosen one—the girl whose fate is willingly handed to the spirits of the forest so the rest of us could thrive. But it’s all lies, untruths told to conceal the many secrets our elders are keeping from us.

The truth is out there prowling the woods, and I will find it. I’ve been preparing for this my whole life, to finally find answers and prove that there’s something wicked hiding in the forest.

Lurking. Watching. Waiting.

And every seventeen years it hunts. This year…it’s my turn.

If you like dark stories with twists and turns, then this is the book for you.

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


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.


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.


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.


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 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.
