It’s that time again. I got a few different kinds of books this week. However, the free romance selections didn’t have anything that really grabbed me this time. I promise to keep looking though. :) Now, let’s get on with this week’s selections! I found some pretty juicy ones!
I am not sure when his post went up but the author posted on his site that this book is free on Amazon for 5 days only so go get it asap.
The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming….
The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers. Over time, these foul dragons were hunted down and slain by heroes of old. When each body rotted away, nothing remained save for nine Jewels–each the lens of a dragon’s left eye. These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.
The Haven Series is a fantasy epic about the Nine Jewels of Power, each of which represents a different form of magic. The Red Jewel, known as Sang, gives the wielder power over Blood Magic. The Blue, named Lavatis, can call the Rainbow and rules the Sky.
Amber Magic is a short introductory book in this epic series of fantasy novels by bestselling author B. V. Larson.
The Resonance Tetralogy Book 1
By Hugo Jackson
Sci-Fi / Fantasy
Her power is unmeasured. Her abilities untested. Her destiny inescapable.
Faria Phiraco is a ‘resonator’, a manipulator of crystals from the moon who wields control of the elements. It is a rare and secret power which she and her father, the Emperor of Xayall, guard with their lives. But they are not alone…
The Dhraka, malicious red-scaled dragons, have discovered an ancient artefact, a mysterious relic from the mythical, aeons-lost city of Nazreal. Their plan already in motion, they besiege Xayall, launching upon the city to find Faria and tear more of Nazreal’s secrets from her. But she knows nothing, except that the powers hunting her threaten the entire world.
With her father missing, Faria has to rely on her own strength and brave the world that attacks her at every turn. Friends and guardians rally by her to help save her father and reveal the mysteries of the ruined city, while the dark legacy of an ancient cataclysm wraps its claws around her fate… and her past. She soon realises that this is not the beginning, nor anywhere near the end. A titanic war spanning thousands of years unfolds around her, one that could yet cost the lives of everyone on Eeres.
Legacy is character-driven epic fantasy action forged in an exciting and intricate plot that reaches deep into the Resonance world’s history. Sword and sorcery battles, magnificent flying ships, city sieges, gigantic metal fortresses and ancient secrets fuel the war on all sides, past and present.

But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…
