Freebies and Deals, on Nook too (17)

We have our weekly Friday Freebie at Barnes & Nobles, if you are interested to check out the list everyone is adding to...

This week I have a few I found by authors who are giving free books with signing up for their newsletters.  And they sound awesome!

This one I found a while ago, but the author is still doing it!
Exiles Burn by Elaine Corvidae  Elaine's site to sign up, top of right sidebar.

Goodreads Synopsis:
A medic with a broken body. 

Neva Whitestone was severely injured during the Zatvian attack that destroyed her homeworld. Bearing scars on her face and in her soul, she is adrift in a universe crushed beneath the might of the Zatvian Cooperative. Now Neva has received a mysterious summons from a ship called the Exile. 

A stowaway with a broken mind. 

He has no name except the insult flung at him--Rat. Without any memory of his former life, he is haunted by voices in his head, which threaten to drive him mad. Desperate to escape, Rat flees from the Zatvians hunting him by stowing away on what appears to be an ordinary freighter. 

A ship in exile. 

The Exile is no innocent freighter, however, but instead a pirate ship embroiled in the last vestiges of rebellion against the Zatvians. So far, they have survived their private war. But now they have on board a man without a past, whose ravaged brain holds secrets that the Zatvians will kill to possess.

Here is a giveaway for signing up for John's Newsletter and spreading the word.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Evildoers beware Retribution is at hand, thanks to Britain's best-kept secret agents 
Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain's latest hypersteam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance . . . with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown.

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White ~ First book in series ~ is on sale in eFormat for $2.99
Paranormalcy (Amazon Kindle)   Barnes & Noble-Nook   Google eBook
Is this a limited time or permanent? I'm not sure.  But sharing it with you now.
Goodreads Synopsis:
Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal.

Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

Geekomancy by Michael R. Underwood ~ Is on sale for a limited time for $1.99!
Geekomancy (Amazon Kindle)
 Barnes & Nobles-Nook
Goodreads Synopsis:
Ree Reyes’ life was easier when she just had to worry about scraping together tips from her gig as a barista-and-comicshop slave wage in the port city of Pearson to pursue her ambitions as a screenwriter.

When a scruffy-looking guy storms into the shop looking for a comic like his life depends on it, Ree writes it off as just another day in the land of the geeks. Until a gigantic ‘BOOM!’ echoes from the alley a minute later, and Ree follows the rabbit hole into Pearson’s magical flip-side. Here, astral cowboy hackers fight trolls, rubber-suited werewolves and Elegant Gothic Lolita fate witches by channeling genre tropes and wielding nostalgia-powered props.

Ree joins Eastwood (aka scruffy guy), investigating a mysterious string of teen suicides as she tries to avoid imploding after her own drag-your-heart-through-jagged-glass breakup. But as she digs deeper, Ree discovers Eastwood may not be the knight-in-cardboard-armor she thought. Will Ree be able to stop the suicides, save Eastwood from himself, and somehow keep her job?

Anything else?
