Freebies & Deals, & Nook too (9)

A lot going on this week in book freebies and deals.

If you like stopping by Barnes & Nobles to see what they have listed on the forum as free, here's the link.

I found this one free on Kindle, it's not an ebook on Nook yet.  But it's free at the moment!
It's classified as YA, but I like the sounds of it as an adult.
Angel of Brass by Elaine Corvidae ~ On Amazon, Kindle
Description:
Dr. Malachi made “siblings” Jin and Delilah of clockwork and spare parts—human and otherwise. They have one purpose: to assassinate Queen Rowena so Dr. Malachi can profit from the war that will surely follow. When Jin discovers Dr. Malachi’s plans, he runs away, but to his despair he must leave Delilah behind.


Life in the outside world is terrifying. Jin has never been away from his creator’s estate and can barely pass for human. And now Dr. Malachi’s other creations—mechanical men and zombies—have picked up his trail. On the run, Jin crashes through young mechanic Molly Feldman’s roof; she sees the humanity beneath the metal and decides to hide him, but soon Malachi’s creatures are after her, too.


If Jin doesn’t rescue his “sister” Delilah, she’ll be forced to assassinate the Queen or die in the attempt. He needs Molly’s help, but if she finds out he was built for the same purpose, it may be the end for Delilah and Jin both.

These 2 are only Free UNTIL April 16th, so Head over to Amazon Kindle to get them before they are gone.  DO NOTE!

Tamed by Doublas R. Brown ~ On Amazon, Kindle
Description:
Werewolves are real.


And they make excellent pets.


Owning one of the legendary creatures is the latest fad. The WereHouse insists their werepets are loyal, docile, and 100% safe, but what happens when these gentle giants turn on their masters?


While on a routine EMS call, paramedic Christine Alt is attacked by a rogue werepet. She escapes with her life, but the encounter leaves her with more than just scars. As her body begins to change, she discovers the WereHouse is hiding a terrible secret, and they will stop at nothing to keep her from exposing them.


Tamed is a werewolf tale with a twist from the author of the The Light of Epertase trilogy.

Spur of the Moment by Candace Bowen Early ~ On Amazon, Kindle

Best-selling author Bronwyn Chase never quite fit in with the 21st century. On a publicity trip to New York City, a mysterious woman claiming to be a mystic from Bronwyn’s past gives her a silver knights spur. Asked to save Euric, a man she never knew existed, Bronwyn finds herself transported to 12th-century Cornwall. Landing at the feet of an entranced Euric, she discovers the instant connection she feels to him comes from a midsummer rite gone horribly awry on the eve of her birth. Forced to face a dark wicce who plans to use Euric for her own nefarious ends, Bronwyn summons her own mystical birthright to free him.

Icarus (The Kindred) by J.S. Chancellor ~ On Amazon, Kindle
Description:
“Don’t get me wrong; immortality does have its perks. Take dieting for example—kind of hard to do when you’ve only got two choices: fresh blood and slightly less fresh blood. The media makes it all out to be glamorous. Romantic, even. But the books, movies and witty television shows have it wrong. Especially the ones that make a big to-do about not being wrong (you know, the ones that spell vampire Vampyr, like it’s original).


And don’t think for a second that I was turned in some amazing, soul-binding, body-meshing way either. I don’t think my libido is damaged enough to forget that kind of rendezvous. Though, to be honest, I don’t recall anything about it. As soon as you’re turned, as soon as anyone is turned, the powers that be rush in like witness protection agents and whisk you off, never to see your family or friends again. Your life changes in ways you never imagined that it could.


Like the fact that I was kidnapped last night. Totally didn’t see that coming. Not being the Covenant-level assassin that I am (did I mention that already? I didn’t get much of a choice in that either—the profession I mean). Oh, and get this … the creeps who grabbed me claim that my mentor/should-have-kept-it-professional boyfriend Trinity is the vampire equivalent to the anti-Christ.


Nice. And to think it’s only Tuesday.


But wait, it gets better. See, there is one fact about vampirism that everyone gets correct—our bodies can’t biologically process natural light. Past that, all I know is that if I don’t partake of my usual dose of Icarus every seven days (provided via injection by the powers that be), I’ll lose my existence as I know it. It allows me to bask in the sunlight, keeps us from exploding into flames and I’ve heard rumors that it’s what makes us immortal. You know, little things.

Now, since Head Creep removed the dosing disc from my arm, whether I had anything to do with it or not, I’m guilty of betraying High Coven. This fact not only sucks (pun intended), it means I’ve been condemned to death.
An assassin … condemned to death. Seems like kind of shitty deal if you ask me.

I don’t care that Head Creep is hot enough that he gives Christian Bale a run for his money. He claims that Icarus is part of some massive conspiracy, that vampires are a perverse mutation of beings from another universe, and that Trinity (along with some dark army he’s supposedly in charge of) plans to exterminate the human race. Of course, he says this will occur in less than a week. And damn, wouldn’t you know he’d kidnap me on day six of my dose?”


Have you read the fantasy series, Chronicles of Siala by Alexey Pehov?  There is a free short story, or 2 short stories for you in this setting.
A Pehov Duet: The Snake & Battle of the Margend Horseshoe by Alexey Pehov ~ On Barnes & Nobles & Amazon, Kindle
Description:
Two original, exciting and engaging short stories from Alexey Pehov that feature master thief Shadow Harold, the protagonist of the Chronicles of Siala epic fantasy series. In "The Snake", Harold, the most accomplished thief in the world (and reluctant hero of Alexey Pehov's award-winning series, Chronicles of Siala) may have finally met his match in what could prove to be his most dangerous escapade. A stand-alone short story appearing for the very first time. “Battle of the Margend Horseshoe” is an additional scene from SHADOW BLIZZARD, Pehov’s upcoming conclusion to the Chronicles of Siala. Harold and friends, old and new, prepare for a spirited offensive attack after cleverly cornering the Orc army at the Margend Horsehoe river bend. An exciting taste of the masterful battle scenes that are Pehov’s forte.

I think that's all I have this week.  Hope you find something you enjoy! :)
