Freebie Friday – Six YA/NA Books

Six FREE YA & NA Books from Four Different Authors - Freebie Friday - September 2

Freebie Friday features books that look interesting to me and are FREE to download from amazon on this day. Some might be free after Friday as well.

For this Friday, I’ve picked six books in the YA, NA, Fantasy and Paranormal genres.

A Dark Faerie Tale Series  by  USA Today Bestselling Author Alexia Purdy - Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale Book 1) - The Withering Palace (Companion 1) - Evangeline (Companion 2)

Let’s start with a magical three-in-one: three free books from one series.

A dark twist on faeries. For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen Faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin, has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie.

Blurb:

The Land of Faerie is calling.

There are places unknown, magic lures you in and love spands lifetimes.

Don’t resist. It’s in the blood…

Have I read these books? No.

Why did I pick these books for Freebie Friday?

I was in a mood for something at least a little bit dark. This seems like an interesting set of books, especially the first companion book.

You can buy them here:

FREE until:

There’s a note after the Ever Shade blurb that makes me think the books will be free not only on this Friday.

By Darkness Revealed (Blackwell Magic Book 1) by Kevin McLaughlin

Title: By Darkness Revealed

Series & Book Number: Blackwell Magic, Book 1

Author: Kevin McLaughlin

Genres: NA, Coming of Age

Amazon Rating: 4.5 stars

Blurb:

Ryan Blackwell thought to escape his magic by burying himself in the military college at Northshield, Vermont.

But Northshield University has a secret: a nexus of magical power that people will kill to possess.

Hiding his power becomes impossible. Instead, he finds himself in the midst of a deeper and more dangerous sorcery than he has ever encountered before.

Things spiral out of control, and soon only Ryan’s wit, will, and the talent he once hoped to leave behind stand between a nightmarish creature and everything he cares for.

There is more to Ryan than meets the eye. But even with the powers he controls, can he stand against this darkness, or will it swallow him whole?

Have I read this book? No.

Why did I pick this book for Freebie Friday?

The blurb makes it sound as if we’ll be following a strong main character facing through a difficult journey. I like the high stakes and the possibility of Ryan failing.

FREE on: September 2, but possibly after that as well

Prescient A Time Travel Dystopia by Derek Murphy

Title: Prescient

Series & Book Number: Prescient, Part 1

Author: Derek Murphy

Genres: Time Travel, Dystopian

Amazon Rating: 4.5 stars

Blurb:

What if I told you you’d be dead in a year?

That a food corporation would experiment with genetic modification, and nearly destroy the human race. Would you believe me? Sounds crazy, right? Because nobody can see the future.

Nobody but me.

And what I see isn’t pretty.

A dystopian wasteland.

Bodies rotting to nothing in the streets.

Humans on the brink of survival.

The wilderness eating away at what used to be my hometown.

A shadow organization rounding up children. Bands of warring tribes.

And let’s not forget the modifieds – the zombie-like remains of what used to be the human race.

Civilization is destroyed. There is no chance to undo the damage. No one can save the world… except me.

Because for me, it hasn’t even happened yet. For me, it might never happen.

The only thing is, the more time I spend in the future, the less I want to erase it. Stopping the future might break me… I’d be erasing a face, a smile, that I never want to forget. 

Have I read this book? No.

Why did I pick this book for Freebie Friday?

The first thing that grabbed me was the cover. When I read the blurb, I thought “Nothing new, but it has potential”. The selling point for me was “I’d be erasing a face, a smile, that I never want to forget”. Whose face? Whose smile? Hers? A love interest’s? A dear friend’s smile? The face of a sibling that wouldn’t be born if she changes the future?

The blurb got me wondering so I decided to download and share this freebie with you.

This book has been free for a while now so it will probably stay free after Friday.

Family Magic (The Hayle Coven Novels Book 1) by Patti Larsen

Title: Family Magic

Series & Book Number: The Hayle Coven Novels, Book 1

Author: Patti Larsen

Genre: Paranormal

Amazon Rating: 4.5 stars

Blurb:

Her mom’s a witch.

Her dad’s a demon.

And she just wants to be ordinary.

I batted at the curl of smoke drifting off the tip of my candle and tried not to sneeze. My heavy velvet cloak fell in oppressive, suffocating folds in the closed space of the ceremony chamber, the cowl trapping the annoying bits of puff I missed. I hated the way my eyes burned and teared, an almost constant distraction. Not that I didn’t welcome the distraction, to be honest. Anything to take my mind from what went on around me.

Being part of a demon raising is way less exciting than it sounds.

Sydlynn Hayle’s life couldn’t be more complicated. Trying to please her coven, starting over in a new town, and fending off a bully cheerleader who hates her are just the beginning of her troubles. What to do when delicious football hero Brad Peters–boyfriend of her cheer nemesis–shows interest? If only the darkly yummy witch, Quaid Moromond, didn’t make it so difficult for her to focus on fitting in with the normal kids. Add to that her crazy grandmother’s constant escapes driving her family to the brink and Syd’s between a rock and a coven site. Forced to take on power she doesn’t want to protect a coven who blames her for everything, only she can save her family’s magic.

If her family’s distrust doesn’t destroy her first.

Have I read this book? No.

Why did I pick this book for Freebie Friday?

The first lines of the blurb – “Her mom’s a witch. Her dad’s a demon.” – reminded me of one of my own works in progress, so, naturally, I got curious. Besides, I like stories about demons and witches.

FREE on: September 2
