A free fantasy for your weekend! With more giveaways coming soon!

Bound, by Kirsten Weiss

You get a book… and you get a book…

When it comes to books, it doesn’t get better than free! But we don’t recommend just any free book. (Most of the time, you get what you pay for.) So we look for titles that actually excite us. Solid writing. Good reviews. An interesting premise. And we try to cross the sci-fi/fantasy spectrum. Dystopian science one day, cozy mysteries the next. This one’s a contemporary witchy mystery with a bit of romance, in the vein of Practical Magic. We downloaded ours as soon as we found it. And then we shared it with you!

Only $1.49 for this paranormal fantasy! (The gate is open!)

Spirit Legacy, by E.E. Holmes

With more than 600 reviews on Goodreads and a 4.6 rating, Spirit Legacy by E.E. Holmes is our deal pick of the day. It looks a little bit like Ghost Whisperer (with a rougher childhood) and a whole lot like awesome. (We’re getting hints from reader reviewers of strong character development, and we love well developed characters.)

We picked it up and then got back to hanging out here at Dragoncon. Someone find us a Starbucks. We’re gonna need it!

Being Alpha, by Aileen Erin

I love it when a main character actually grows over the course of a series. Developing as a person, becoming more confident. Without any spoilers (ever!), Tessa has done just that. I loved her in the beginning, and I love her now. I just finished Being Alpha about five minutes ago, and I already can’t wait for the next one!

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain

$0.99 Kindle Sale ($4.99)

What do FBI agents, vampires, witches, glass eyes, alpacas, and a wicked sense of humor all have in common? You guessed it: Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain. I read the first chapter and then bought it immediately for only $0.99. I laughed at the spitting alpaca. I laughed at the conversation Shane has with his mother. Heck, I laughed at the dialog with the 911 operator, but there’s probably something wrong with me.

I even laughed at the dedication. Here, look. I screenshotted it for you.

Why Did The New Republic Call This Book “Pernicious” in 1976?

Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice

$2.99 Kindle Sale! ($7.99)

This is the book that started it all–the bestselling, 10-volume Vampire Chronicles series that catapulted Anne Rice into the realm of author legend. When it came out in 1976, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said it was “hypnotically poetic in tone, rich in sensory imagery and dense with the darkness that lies behind the veil of human thought.” The New Republic, on the other hand, called it “pernicious.”

Critics aside, it earned almost $1,000,000 in sales and movie rights before it hit the streets and is now one of the essential cornerstones of any fantasy or paranormal collection. The deal has only a few days left, so don’t wait to pick up this timeless masterpiece.

Get the deal.
