Meet Gray. Dhampir. Undead. Cursed.
With supernatural powers and an insatiable need for blood, her existence is cursed.
When Gray awakens from a three-year spell induced coma, she not only discovers her lover as the one responsible, but that he has joined with a dangerous organization known as the Consilium to help them create a new breed of hybrid demons. Humans and Witches are being taken against their will, and fear is growing throughout the covens.
Gray never had a choice—forced to become a monster, the Dhampir. Yet after four hundred years, she still yearns for her humanity, like a long-lost echo from another life. She cannot allow the Consilium to do this to anyone else. With a renewed lust for vengeance, and a target on her back, Gray must use the one thing she swore never to in order to stop them—blood magic.
Armed with a magical pirate ship, an immortal monk, and a flower plucked from the Underworld, Gray will stop at nothing to start a war. Yet in her quest to track down her enemies, she uncovers a dark family secret that threatens to destroy the last shred of humanity she has left.
"Melissa Sercia packs a punch with her debut novel with its rich world building and unique interpretation of gothic literature. It’s a must read if you’re looking for a fresh take on gothic fantasy.” – Science Fiction Author, Samantha Huewagen ★★★★★
Q: Why do you write?
A: When I was a kid, reading was a way for me to escape into magical worlds. I was about twelve years old when I first started writing and making up my own stories. It made me feel like I had a connection to the literary greats. Like I was in some sort of secret magical club. Today, I write to try and capture that magic in hopes to inspire writers and readers alike. To take my readers on a journey. An adventure. An escape. I write to breathe life into characters, to transport readers to fantasy settings, and to hopefully make people believe in magic again.
Q: What books do you write?
A: I write Fantasy and Science Fiction and all of its sub-genres. My current series, Blood and Darkness, is adult Urban Fantasy. I love playing with the real world and spinning it on its head, adding magical elements and creatures to it, and creating worlds within worlds. I keep a very long notebook of story ideas filled with everything from Portal Fantasy, Steampunk, and High Fantasy to Dystopian, Hard Sci-Fi, and Space Opera.
BLOOD AND DARKNESS
Q: Why should readers pick up your books?
A: Blood and Darkness is a fast paced, page turning Urban Fantasy series. If you are a fan of Gothic settings, sexual tension, ancient prophecies, dark magic, and deep rooted mythology, then you will love this series. Ultimately, Blood and Darkness is about love and betrayal, revenge and redemption, and all-out war. From the first page of Blood and Magic to the last, you will not be able to put this series down. These characters will haunt you, their stories will stay with you, and they will leave you wanting more.

An action-packed read from a new voice in British epic fantasy
The Temple of Shirith-Kah is coming to Arkavia, to destroy the old gods, burn the land and blacken the sky. In the shadows of the Velderwood, unwitting guardians defend a forgotten hope against a demon sent to destroy it.
Termaris is a surly mercenary with a talent for killing, but he cares little for wars, gods, death or even life. He takes one last job to escape prison, then reneges on the deal when the journey draws him back to an older, higher calling, and threatens to lay his past treachery bare. Ethné has unique powers she can’t understand or control. She wants answers, but her talent has a terrifying price which could leave her alone in a sea of enemies.
On a desperate mission they carry a holy vial south in search of alliance with the Empire of Teth-Kiran. But Arkavia’s old master is an insular nation of conspiracies and deadly intrigue, and they care little for the lives of barbarians in the north. As a shadow of ancient evil falls upon the empire, few dare hope to bring the two nations together once more, as a last bastion against the Dreaming God.

Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was an English author, medievalist scholar and provost of King’s College, Cambridge, and of Eton College. Though James’s work as a medievalist is still highly regarded, he is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are regarded as among the best in the genre. He redefined the ghost story for the new century by abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more realistic contemporary settings. H. P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith were admirers of James’s work. Michael Sadleir described him as “the best ghost-story writer England has ever produced”. Paul Theroux refers to “The Mezzotint” as “the most frightening story I know”. In his list “The 13 Most Terrifying Horror Stories”, T. E. D. Klein placed James’s “Casting the Runes” at number one.

“My name’s King Clyde The Destroyer and I’m fourteen-years-old and I’m tough as nails and I’ve lived in a dump my whole life...”
Meet Clyde, a little boy whose whole world has been trash since the day he was born. In the massive garbage dump he calls home, Clyde navigates a dangerous landscape of trash mountains and the ever-present dread of what lies out there in The Great Beyond – the cracked and lightning-kissed land outside his Kingdom where he has never ventured to go. Within those walls, Clyde rules over the land as King, imagining himself a Hollywood stuntman as he “races” cars around The Used Car Lot, reading books at The Library, or reminiscing about long-lost family vacations while at The Memory Palace. Beyond those walls are dangers unimaginable, such as the gruesome monsters Clyde’s mother warned him about – the ones that will eat his face off if he dares step foot beyond the Kingdom walls. But that’s not the only warning his mother gave, for there’s always the danger of invading Out-of-Towners – gasmasked nomads known to roam the dry land, stopping off at lifeless towns and garbage dumps to pillage for supplies and food, where anything or anyone could be on the menu. Yes, as a genuine momma’s boy, Clyde takes these warnings to heart, but when a new family of Out-of-Towners lays down roots in his Kingdom, things are going to change for Clyde who’ll soon learn to see garbage for what it really is – and where the monsters really live.

$0.00, 315 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #28 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary Fiction > Literary
Raw. Shocking. Provocative. Read the controversial collection about the dark underbelly of high school. Includes HELL HIGH, TRAIN WRECK, and THE BOOK OF LILITH. Plus two short stories: Another Night on the Town and Another Pointless Life.
WARNING: Not for the squeamish or light of heart. Contains material that may offend.
Hell, North Dakota. Here, teenagers lose their innocence in a cesspit of recreational and psychiatric drugs, pseudo-macho ideals, and incessant verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. After a cruel prank causes a girl to commit suicide, her fellow students must face their inner darkness. And none of them may survive prom night...
Praise from Amazon readers:
Gloriously Different From Anything Else You Have Ever Read
“Take every person you knew in high school and take their bad character traits to the extreme and you will have the characters of Hell High….Personally, I could not put this book down. I finished it in two days in between classes and homework and do not regret it at all.”
"[Raptor] takes the absolute worst of humans, turns it into a train wreck...and yet, I Couldn't. Stop. Reading."
Art That Should Not Have Been Made
"The author seems dead. To live and breathe hate. It's actually striking, the depth of blackness this guy goes to. In my mind, there's no redeeming value. It's art that shouldn't have been made."
"The author derived the most sadistic, deranged, disturbed teenagers and put them altogether in the same high school . . . It's hard to believe Satan's hell is as demented as Hell High . . . I don't know how I got through it..albeit, my morbid curiosity."
Elsa wants to die.
But when she is the lone survivor of a fatal train accident, she starts to wonder if she’s immortal: the worst possible fate for a suicidal girl.
After she makes some friends at Hell High, she no longer thirsts for death…but will this make her more vulnerable?
THE BOOK OF LILITH
Laura Janzer is running for president of Hell High—and she will destroy anyone who gets in her way. Whether it be framing a teacher for viewing illegal pornography or causing her opponent to leap to her death from the top of the school building. Laura is ruthless, vile…maybe the devil herself. But her friend Ashley is slowly becoming aware of her best friend’s psychosis, and in the end, Karma will be a BITCH.

But now she’s found a mobile that works and there is a signal…
Stella the Zombie Killer Volume One contains the first twenty two episodes of the sensational new post-apocalyptic series. It sees Stella take on zombies, angels and other survivors in an apparently desolate London where only the strong survive. The strong and maybe those lucky few for whom the Cynosure fights.

WARNING: Strong Violence, Sex, and Language.
8 dark, disturbing, and creepy stories by John Raptor:
In the windy streets of Chicago, near Millennium Park, a serial killer is cutting out prostitutes’ eyes and replacing them with big black buttons—but that's not the strangest part. FBI Agent James Harris is witnessing these murders as they take place. Not with his eyes, but in his mind.
Weirder yet, The Prostitute Killer is privy to James’ sins: the affair with his FBI partner and the night club where he picks up girls.
The killer believes that he and James share a twisted past, and he wants two things: 1. For James to confess his sins and 2. A meeting with James—in private.
If James does not comply, the killer will make sure James' wife and daughter end up looking like those dead whores.
In this dark, psychological thriller, a head injury transforms a brain surgeon into a serial killer.
When a thug shoots brain surgeon Alex Dien in the head, he slips into a coma and awakens a blood-thirsty monster. Voices whisper in his ear, prompting him to stab, drown, and strangle. Soon, the bodies pile up and the FBI gets involved. In the end, Alex must choose to listen to the voices in his head, or save his wife and daughter--from himself.
Special Agent Pillar LaPorte goes to Hell, North Dakota, to investigate the Mark of the Beast Murders: two victims—one burned alive, the other with his face slashed open—both marked with 666. Teaming up with her is Father Adam Harris, a local priest who is part of a group called Veritas (Latin for "Truth"), which investigates miracles, stigmata, and demon possession. Pillar suspects a local Mormon Bishop is responsible for the murders, but Adam believes it may be something more powerful: a demon, or possibly, God.
4. Dark Side
Jean wakes up in a world he does not recognize, on the run with three others from something called the Mafushcuhi: mutants who survived a nuclear holocaust. No one remembers who they used to be. Their brains have been pumped full of drugs, memories, personalities. Within one of them is the key to the universe that will allow the Mafushcuhi to open a portal in space and time, and stop the holocaust from ever happening. But doing so could disrupt the space-time continuum and destroy everything. Jean questions whether he can really trust his companions—after all, he has no memories of them. Are they being truthful, or do they have another agenda?
5. The Nightmare Project
Jack and Julie constantly have nightmares with one thing in common: a man in a long black trench coat, his face hidden beneath a rain hat. In a private lab, doctors monitor Jack and Julie’s nightmares through something called the Dream Feed. Most the doctors believe the shared dreams can be explained by Carl Jung’s collective unconscious, but one crackpot believes that the Dark Man is actually a demon. Jack and Julie discover the truth when they decide to confront the Dark Man in a shared nightmare.
In the small town of McClusky, North Dakota, a girl is stabbed to death after receiving a disturbing email. Her two best friends, Elsa and Eric, are terrified when they too receive the email: a picture of a dead woman on a stretch of highway.
George Perkin’s cat is possessed by Satan—which is rather unfortunate. With the help of three living-breathing clichés (religious fanatic, dumb blonde, and rapping black guy), Perkins must stab the cat through the heart with a dagger dipped in Evian water. Unfortunately, a possessed cat may be the least of their problems.
8. Flagg Hill
At a Christian summer camp in the Black Hills of South Dakota, a boy meets the love of his life. But things turn ugly when a psychotic pastor shows up. This demented man believes sexual purity can only be obtained through bloodshed. Girls vs Boys—the campers must play the most dangerous game of all.

$0.00, 14 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #300 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Short Stories
In a classic game of cat and mouse, the thin line between prey and predator becomes a blurred shadow at best. Serial killers aren't made, they're born. This is a fact that each of their victims fights helplessly against as they draw their final breath. Death is a battle fought by all, but when in the skilled hands of a killer, death becomes a carefully baited performance to be savored in tantalizing bites. The Roadside Slasher is just that type of evil. He is a skilled predator who hunts his prey with a single determination, toying with the minds of the defenseless, as well as the far from innocent. Would you survive an encounter with the ultimate evil, or simply become another notch on his bloodied belt?

Searching for Alocyrrehcyzzif. What on earth can that mean? Look at the picture of the bottle of Mystic Cola. Scrutinize it well, in fine detail. Well, did you see them? Did you see the troubled souls trapped within it? Did you see the expressions on their poor, pitiful faces, knowing they have no hope of escaping that bottle? To find out how this unfortunate state of affairs came about, read the story. It’s unlike anything that you have read before.
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.
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.
There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:Kindle Freebies
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 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.
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.
