17 Free Books in Amazon Kindle Store

Attached below are 17 free books this morning in the Amazon Kindle store – I’m not going to have 17 separate posts on them, so I have put them together based on genre: most of the titles are (to me) self-explanatory.  As usual, I don’t know how long these will be offered for free, so if you are interested in any or all of them I strongly suggest you grab them now before they start charging again!

Spirit Lights – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Spirit Lights by Bonnie Turner is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received a perfect 5 out of 5 stars based on three customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/rJly0m into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Children / Young Adult

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Returning to the Arctic after a two-year absence, twelve-year-old Jean-Paul has overcome his old fear of the dark, but discovers that his best Inuit friend, Chinook, is terrified of “spirit lights.”

One frigid night, after searching by dogsled for a crashed plane, Jean-Paul hears tinkling sounds in the area of a brilliant aurora. Chinook and the Inuit girl Kunee say the spirits in the lights are speaking, warning of danger. But Jean-Paul *knows* auroras can’t talk!

Or can they?

Fans of Gary Paulsen, Scott O’Dell, and Jack London will enjoy reading about Inuit culture and building igloos. They will experience fear and danger when they open a sleepy polar bear’s den with Jean-Paul and his Inuit friends, and will share a lonely, hazardous dogsled ride across the tundra and through the wilderness.

Two cultures meet in this coming-of-age novel for middle-grade readers ages 9 & up. Sequel to The Haunted Igloo, Spirit Lights is a *must read* before the exciting new young-adult novel, Drum Dance.

A sickly mom. A tiny house trailer. High school bullies and snarky drama queens. Bad-guy dudes with charming smiles. Allie has problems. And then there’s that whole thing about fulfilling a magical prophecy and saving the world from evil. Geez. Welcome to the sad, funny, sometimes-scary world of fifteen-year-old Allie Emerson, who’s struggling to keep her and her mom’s act together in the small-town world of Peacock Flats, Washington. An electrical zap from a TV antenna sets off Allie’s weird psychic powers. The next thing she knows she’s being visited by a hippy-dippy guardian angel, and then her mysterious neighbor, the town “witch,” gives her an incredible moonstone pendant that has powers only a good-hearted “Star Seeker” is meant to command. “Who, me?” is Allie’s first reaction. But as sinister events begin to unfold, Allie realizes she’s got a destiny to live up to. If she can just survive everyday life, in the meantime.

Eleven-year-old Sarah Stone is lonely in a mansion amidst butlers, nannies, housekeepers, and a father who is too busy for her. She is angry at the world. On the other side of town, in a slum called the Sink, Jared Roberts and his gang barely survive broken families and a hardscrabble existence. Jared, too, is angry, and intends to do something about it. He eyes Sarah’s mansion for a pre-Christmas burglary that will show the world who he really is.

Into this mix comes a mysterious little man named Nicholas, who intrigues, yet scares, Sarah and Jared. Against incredible doubt and cynicism, Nicholas tries to guide the two youths away from their anger and the suffering that will follow, only to realize he can not move them. Finally, he whisks them to another time and place where a Christmas long ago teaches them the true meaning of life in a way they never imagined.

MARY’S SON is a modern tale of the fears and passions of youth overcome by the wonder of the real Christmas story.

Category: Young Adult / Fantasy / Romance

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Zellie Wells has a devastating crush on Avery Adams, the son of her mom’s high school sweetheart. At her sixteenth birthday party, held in the basement of her dad’s church, she finally finds the courage to talk to him. Turns out, the devastating crush is mutual.

As Avery takes her hand and leads her out onto the makeshift dance floor, Zellie is overwhelmed by her first vision of his death; shocking because not only are they both covered in his blood, but they’re old, like 35, and she is pregnant.

Afraid to tell anyone about the vision, (she’d just be labeled a freaky black magic witch, right?) Zellie keeps the knowledge of Avery’s future to herself and tries to act like any other teenager in love. When they get caught on their way to a secret rendezvous by her mom and his dad, they are forbidden to see each other.

Convinced that their parents are freaking out unnecessarily, Avery and Zellie vow to be together no matter what. They continue their relationship in secret until Zellie learns that their parents are just trying to prevent her and Avery from suffering like they did. The visions are hereditary, they’re dangerous, and if they stay together the visions will come true.

Now Zellie must choose between severing all ties with Avery, like her mom did to prevent his father’s death, and finding a way to change Avery’s future.

This book is intended for older teens.
