It’s the beginning of the month again!
And you know what that means, right?
No, not endless days of 100 degree Seattle heat leeching away my sanity well into a new month, with no hope of air conditioning ever blowing on my face or allowing me a moment of peaceful slumber!
Can you read how whiny I sound? I really do sound like that right now!
Indeed, instead, it is time to update our Free Library and offer new free eBooks that we can take on Kindles and laptops to the nearest air conditioned cafe or coffee source!
Here are the new additions:
- The Briar King by Greg Keyes – Two thousand years ago, the Born Queen defeated the Skasloi lords, freeing humans from the bitter yoke of slavery. But now monstrous creatures roam the land—and destinies become inextricably entangled in a drama of power and seduction. The king’s woodsman, a rebellious girl, a young priest, a roguish adventurer, and a young man made suddenly into a knight—all face malevolent forces that shake the foundations of the kingdom, even as the Briar King, legendary harbinger of death, awakens from his slumber. At the heart of this many-layered tale is Anne Dare, youngest daughter of the royal family . . . upon whom the fate of her world may depend.
- King’s Property by Morgan Howell – Born into hardship, Dar learns to rely on herself alone. When her family betrays her, Dar is conscripted into King Kregant’s army and its brutal campaign to conquer a neighboring country. Now she is bound as a slave to a dreaded regiment of orcs, creatures legendary for their savagery and battle prowess. Rather than cower, Dar rises to the challenge. She learns the unique culture and language of the orcs, survives treachery from both allies and enemies, and struggles to understand a mystical gift that brings her dark, prophetic visions. As the war escalates-amid nightmarish combat and shattering loss-Dar must seize a single chance at freedom.
- The Brass Bed by Jennifer Stevenson – THE CURSE: Satisfy one hundred women or be trapped in a brass bed forever Lord Randall was a lousy lover in 1811, so his magician-mistress turned him into a sex demon. Lucky for him, his bed fell into Clay’s hands. THE CON: Sex therapy for women on an antique brass “treatment bed”
Clay has the perfect scam going, until that pesky, foxy fraud investigator Jewel comes sniffing around. Lucky for him, she has a soft spot for hunky con men. THE CHOICE: Sex demon or sex fraudster? Jewel is Randy’s hundredth woman. Now he says he’s her personal sex slave, and her case against the con artist is dissolving in a hail of hormones. Lucky for her, she’s a tough cop with a lusty libido.
There you go! Three new additions to the Free Library! Of those posted I have read The Briar King by Greg Keyes and I think it is one of the best novels I have read in quite a while. It is also one of those books Terry Brooks forced me to read because it deserved to be. The Briar King is the first book of a completed quartet. Keyes writes great characters and I have to admit when I finished up the last few chapters of the last book in the series, The Born Queen, I had standing tears in the eyes.
Now I get to try King’s Property and The Brass Bed—for free!
Be sure to tell your friends about these free books! I’m sure they are fans as well!
Until next month…View image
