What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank by Krista D. Ball
Amazon ~ Kindle
Goodreads Synopsis:
A Fantasy Lover's Food Guide Equal parts writer's guide, comedy, and historical cookbook, fantasy author Krista D. Ball takes readers on a journey into the depths of epic fantasy's obsession with rabbit stew and teaches them how to catch the blasted creatures, how to move armies across enemy territories without anyone starving to death, and what a medieval pantry should look like when your heroine is seducing the hero.

Learn how long to cook a salted cow tongue, how best to serve salt fish, what a "brewis" is (hint: it isn't beer), how an airship captain would make breakfast, how to preserve just about anything, and why those dairy maids all have ample hips. 

What Kings Ate will give writers of historical and fantastical genres the tools to create new conflicts in their stories, as well as add authenticity to their worlds, all the while giving food history lovers a taste of the past with original recipes and historical notes.

This was mentioned by Tor, so I don't know how long it'll last.
$2.99 now!
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson is only $2.99!
Amazon ~ Kindle   /   Barnes & Nobles ~ Nook
Goodreads Synopsis:
Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soiless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.

It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them.

One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.

First, this is a new author to me but I'm hearing good things from friends out here.  He has offered almost all his books for free in all formats.  *jaw drop*  Yes.  On his site you can get these.

Joseph Robert Lewis (also Joss Llewelyn, and Jordan Lockhart) has made these easy for you to download, from his site.

Unreal, right? Well, go to his Joe's site and get them!

Blood Faerie by India Drummond
Barnes & Nobles ~ Nook
Goodreads Synopsis:
Sentenced to death, Eilidh ran—away from faerie lands, to the streets of Perth, Scotland. Just as she has grown accustomed to exile, local police discover a mutilated body outside the abandoned church where she lives. Recognising the murder as the work of one of her own kind, Eilidh must choose: flee, or learn to tap into the forbidden magic that cost her everything.

If you've found anything this week, please share! :)  Enjoy!

Yea, the Sanderson novel isn't going to be around long at that price. Oh and I really like those Lewis covers! Nice!

Melissa (B&T) I'll say, if I didn't already have Sanderson's novel in print, I'd have picked this one up. :) But I did get all the others.

Kara-Karina, I have to agree with you. Hope you took advantage of the freebies. :)
