Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
It has been a crazy couple of weeks, fellow readers. I didn’t talk about it the last two weeks, but I lost both of my furbabies – two cats I’ve had for the last 14+ years. Worse, I lost them a week apart.
I wasn’t used to having no animals in the house and gave up yesterday to see who was up for adoption. I now have two little house panthers named Lava and Odin. who are running over my feet and chasing each other around my office as I type this.
I wish I had a fraction of their energy. Talk about crazy!
I hope you like books, because we have a week jam-packed with them. Free books, series sales, boxed sets, new releases and more. I’m sure there is something for you to enjoy with the variety of genres we have this week.
I also hope you like contests. There’s a great one ending soon. Check it out below.
Enjoy and happy reading!

Ancient Warrior—Vampire—Queen’s Bitch…
Akio accepted his Queen’s charge to stay behind and protect humanity from the Forsaken scourge.
She never said it would be easy.
An isolated police report about an island overtaken by feral, red-eyed creatures savaging humans spurs Akio to investigate.
The local police are good at their job, but they’re not well-equipped to handle things that go bump in the night.
Especially not the ones terrorizing this once-peaceful island paradise.
While dealing with the incursion, Akio discovers new information. The situation is escalating—and all evidence points to enemies from his past.
A dangerous science he’d thought was destroyed.
The Forsaken are rising to take their place as the alpha predators.
Now, it’s a race against overwhelming odds as Akio unravels long-laid complex plans and takes the fight to those who threaten the last bastion of civilization on post-apocalyptic Earth.

But when she uses magic to save his life, their world is thrown upside down.
On the run, having left all they knew behind they have to rely on those who hate Paladins. All magic is evil, the High Paladin taught… But Alastar starts to understand that he might have been misled.
If his sister uses magic, and she isn’t evil…what does that mean for his beliefs? Brother and sister soon find themselves aligned with magic users and thrown in with the clans in a war against sorcerers and paladins alike, with only one hope of uniting the land–the legendary Sword of Light.

Being possessed has its advantages…
Sure, my soul-bound familiar could be a pain in the ass…
But she came with some pretty impressive abilities.
A nasty Voodoo demigod, a Loa of Destruction, wants to steal her power.
Ogoun, the Loa of War, has invited me to join the Voodoo Academy.
If I master the arts, he tells me, I might have a chance to thwart the demigod’s scheme.
But can any of these “gods” be trusted?
They all have ulterior motives.
And I won’t be a pawn in their war.
But if I don’t stop him, if he steals these powers… he could destroy the world.
I’m an outsider. Not at all like the other students at the academy. I don’t think they’ll ever accept me.
But if I don’t go, if I don’t learn to control these abilities… it will mean the end of everything I hold dear.
Theophilus Monroe’s Annabelle Mulledy is a snarky badass heroine with attitude. Monroe draws on the legend and myth of Voodoo lore in a way that neither caricatures the arts as “demonic” nor glosses over the dark side of the Voodoo tradition. With dark magic, dragons, vampires, and a slow burn academy romance the The Voodoo Legacy complete series has something for everybody.

At what cost victory?
Milo Volkohne, orphan, criminal, conscript, and unwilling warlock could tell you but you might not like the answer.
It is 1936 and the Great War still rages on, with no armistice in 1918 when the Russian Empire crumbled in the fire and blood of stillborn revolution.
The hellish no man’s land has spread like a blight over Europe as grim, unyielding leaders promise a resolve of iron and no mercy, no peace, no hope.
It would take a miracle to save humanity, but as Milo would tell you: be careful what you wish for.
Plunging into a world of sorcery, treachery, and madness the world’s first wizard will bargain with monsters, human or otherwise, fight for his life, and dare to hope that he’s selling his soul for something worthwhile.
But is any price too high to end the War to end all Wars?
King Philip lies dead in the theatre, struck down like a sacrificial bull on his day of triumph in front of all the subject nations of Hellas.
Twenty-year-old Alexander, son of Philip, must seize his father’s throne and, harder still, he must hold it against his many rivals, who are Philip’s veteran generals and noblemen, a royal cousin who was once crowned king in his infancy, and the secret conspirators who moved the assassin’s hand, even as all the conquered cities of Hellas rise from under Philip’s dead heel to reclaim their independence from the despised Makedones.
The task is overwhelming, but Alexander has complete faith in his own destiny and he quite literally changes the face of Hellas.
Born in the Dog Star’s heat, on the sixth of the month of Loios, the very day that a wonder of the world, the great temple of Artemis at Ephesos, burned to the ground, Alexander was destined for immortality.
When such events collide, of gods and kings, such things are never coincidence.
Alexander is blood of Akhilles.

Concho does his job and takes his hits. He’s made plenty of enemies who want him dead and now even his past is coming back to taunt him. A knock on his door late one night sets a chain of mysterious events in motion. He uncovers two skeletons on the reservation, a woman and child – murdered.
It doesn’t matter that his enemies are coming for him, or that he doesn’t know who they are or how they’ll strike. The innocent dead deserve justice, and he’ll see they get it.
