Sometimes, this world just isn't enough, right? And, what's better than stepping to a world created by some of the most imaginative authors around? That's what we bring to you on as consistent a basis as possible. Free and discounted ebooks in the Fantasy genre from bestselling authors. Never pay full price again to escape into thousands of different mindscapes!
Definition of the "Fantasy Genre": As alluded to above, the primary components of bestselling Fantasy ebooks are the creation of a rich and expansive other world. While those other worlds can have aspects similar to our reality, the less so, the better. Ebooks in the Fantasy genre also use magic commonly, and include magical creatures in their plot lines. Perhaps one of the most important technical elements of a Fantasy ebook is that while the rules in the other world created by the author may not work in our reality, they are internally consistent to the story itself.
Some examples of bestselling Fantasy ebooks are George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings), Brandon Sanderson (The Way of Kings), and Piers Anthony (his entire Xanth series). And, you know what? We are going to throw the movie The Neverending Story in here, because it had a book in it after all, and it's a premier example of fantasy.
Klickitat and other stories (K.A.O.S) features four thriller tales about ordinary mountaineers in the Pacific Northwest thrust into extraordinary circumstances. This debut collection from author Mark Jenkins folds modern day mountain climbing into the speculative wilderness of fantasy, sci-fi, and historical fiction.
K.A.O.S. begins with the novelette Heavywater, which follows a vulcanologist trying to find his way home after a glacier fall in the central Alaskan wilds drops him in unfamiliar territory, without GPS.
In the short story Klickitat, a husband and wife climbing team are confronted by a long dormant stratovolcano waking under their feet, and something else; deeper.
Protectors, is a tale about a solo-climber's life-changing discovery of a powerful artifact at the site of a decades old plane crash in the Olympic Mountains.
K.A.O.S. ends with the novelette Signals: an unlikely pair discover they are the only people in the remote town of Whittier, Alaska not mysteriously put to sleep during a dark winter storm—and must team up if they hope to outwit an armed group of marauders prowling into town.
Sammy is a prep school kid struggling with teen love and bullying. Sara is a shaman’s daughter, an outcast, and a sociopath. They are identical best friends existing in different centuries. These ruthless killers are also immortal.

With the kind of money he's being offered he only asks a couple of questions to make sure the job is legit.
Perhaps he should have asked a few more.

Mel Odom, The Rover series.
In a world where superheroes are a business, sixteen-year-old Alex Fry gets the dream job of teenagers everywhere when he is hired by the famous superhero Rubberman as his sidekick.

But Alex gets more than he bargains for when a powerful supervillain with mysterious connections to Rubberman's past appears in his city with a dangerous agenda. Now Alex must master his powers in time to help Rubberman defeat this supervillain before he succeeds in his vile plans.

★★★★★ “Thinblade is one of those rare indie books that capture you from the start and won't let go.” Amazon Review.
The air stilled. The room fell silent. A shockwave passed through them. Everyone froze, faces white with fear. The ancient evil had awakened…
When Alexander loses his brother to an assassin’s arrow, he learns that his family protects an ancient secret and reluctantly finds himself at the center of a war that was supposed to have ended long ago.
Pursued by dark minions of an ancient enemy, Alexander flees to the mountain city of Glen Morillian where he discovers that he is the heir to the throne of Ruatha, one of the Seven Isles.
Before he can claim his birthright he must recover the ancient Thinblade. Seven were forged by the first Sovereign of the Seven Isles. Each is as long as a man’s arm, as wide as a man’s thumb and so thin it can’t be seen from the edge.
Thinblade is the story of Alexander’s quest to find the ancient sword, claim the throne and raise an army capable of standing against an evil that seeks dominion over all of the Seven Isles.
The Sovereign of the Seven Isles is an epic fantasy adventure story spanning seven books and over a million words. Are you looking for a world to get lost in? The Seven Isles awaits.
“If you like Terry Goodkind or Robert Jordan, you're going to love the Seven Isles series. The first book anyway...I just finished reading it, and am ready to start the next one.” Amazon Review.

Here’s what a few readers had to say about Thinblade…
“This is the first in an exceptionally well written series.”
“Dear Mr. Wells, I enjoyed this book from the first page to the very last page.”
“Constant action and a well developed use of magic make the pages keep turning.”
“I really enjoyed this book! The author has a great imagination and succeeds in weaving many plot twists into his story to keep the reader interested and eager to turn the next page.”
“This is a great story. Loved all of it. The characters, the story itself, everything. It has it all, fantastic fight scenes and great magic. Love, love, love it.”
Nothing like getting your ass kicked by a demon on the way to the most important job interview of your life.
But, that’s where I find myself right before trying to make a good impression on the supernatural investigation agency of my dreams. If I get the job, I can slay demons legally, unlike the criminal slaying I’ve been doing.
The only problem? I have to lie through my teeth about who I am or they’ll never hire me.
But the good news is I’m great in a fight, even if I fight dirty. The even better news is there are lots of openings at the agency. Unfortunately, they were created by a murderous cartel known as the Viceroys who seem to be releasing the demons and using their powers to take out most of the agency’s staff. This gets me the job and moves me and the other wet-behind-the-ears interns right in harm’s way.
Exactly where I like to be.
The other interns don’t think much of me, and the feeling’s mutual, especially in the case of Dax Murphy. He may look like a Hemsworth brother, but he’s arrogant as hell. Not my type. Really. I’ve got a lot to focus on with keeping my identity secret and not getting my head cut off by a Viceroy.
But maybe there’s more to Dax than eight-pack abs. And maybe secrets from the past don’t always stay buried.
If you like K.F. Breen, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Laurell K. Hamilton, Shannon Mayer, Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews, Dannika Dark, and Jennifer Estep, you’ll enjoy this wildly fun read.

From the acclaimed and award-winning author of The Hunger comes an eerie, psychological twist on one of the world's most renowned tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic and the ill-fated sail of its sister ship, the Britannic.
Someone, or something, is haunting the ship. Between mysterious disappearances and sudden deaths, the guests of the Titanic have found themselves suspended in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone from the moment they set sail. Several of them, including maid Annie Hebley, guest Mark Fletcher, and millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, are convinced there's something sinister--almost otherwordly--afoot. But before they can locate the source of the danger, as the world knows, disaster strikes.
Years later, Annie, having survived that fateful night, has attempted to put her life back together. Working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, newly refitted as a hospital ship, she happens across an unconscious Mark, now a soldier fighting in World War I. At first, Annie is thrilled and relieved to learn that he too survived the sinking, but soon, Mark's presence awakens deep-buried feelings and secrets, forcing her to reckon with the demons of her past--as they both discover that the terror may not yet be over.
Brilliantly combining the supernatural with the height of historical disaster, The Deep is an exploration of love and destiny, desire and innocence, and, above all, a quest to understand how our choices can lead us inexorably toward our doom.
Outside the rings of Saturn, Pati Lynch commanded a prison ship mining ice. Her crew mutinied, they tried to kill her, and she was the last one left standing. Now, she stands trial for their murder.
Nancy Tate, Pati’s defense attorney, thinks she’ll go free this time because the prison ship’s records were damaged or erased. Without those records, the legal decision will be based on Pati’s testimony alone. However, and Nancy repeats this often, she cannot state aliens had instigated the revolt.
Pati knows she didn’t dream the apparition that appeared on her ship and claimed to be the ex-husband she accidentally killed, but she decides her attorney knows her business. And, it’d be in her best interest to follow her directions if she doesn’t want to be sentenced to a solitary, thirty-year trip back to Earth.
Then, the dreams started. They weren’t normal, even though they began in her fishing village back in Ireland. Soon, she was flying throughout the Saturnian system and into caverns on Titan, all while in a great ecstasy. Waking up gave her a suicidal depression that took most of a morning to recover from.
The trial at least was going well, if not easy. The prosecutor dragged every proceeding to its legal limit, and he made only superficial attempts at settling. This while the computer judge kept lowering the guilty score in each hearing. Pati tried to be patient and took a job working outside on Titan, which nearly cost her life when her rebreather was sabotaged.
At least the dreams were a source of solace, until, she was forced to decide… And now, nowhere is safe.

Before the code to the book can be cracked, Lizzie and John stumble into the middle of a power-hungry mastermind's plan. Caught up in one man's search for power, Lizzie soon begins to uncover surprising secrets about her past and powers. Can she and John put a stop to their new found enemy's plans?

When, one by one, old ladies die in their elegant apartment building in San Francisco, Sarah assumes it is the natural consequence of growing old. The Fog Ladies assume murder.
Mrs. Bridge falls off a stool cleaning bugs out of her kitchen light. Mrs. Talwin hits her head in the bathtub and drowns. Suddenly, the Pacific Heights building is turning over tenants faster than the fog rolls in on a cool San Francisco evening.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Library Journal | Vulture | The Verge | SYFYWire
Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty perfect for fans of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and Uprooted, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts.
On the streets of eighteenth-century Cairo, Nahri is a con woman of unsurpassed skill. She makes her living swindling Ottoman nobles, hoping to one day earn enough to change her fortunes. But when Nahri accidentally summons Dara, an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior, during one of her cons, she learns that even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.
Forced to flee Cairo, Dara and Nahri journey together across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire and rivers where the mythical marid sleep, past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises and mountains where the circling birds of prey are more than what they seem, to Daevabad, the legendary city of brass.
It’s a city steeped in magic and fire, where blood can be as dangerous as any spell; a city where old resentments run deep and the royal court rules with a tenuous grip; a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound—and where her very presence threatens to ignite a war that has been simmering for centuries.

From the twisted minds of Ramy Vance and Matthew Herrmann comes a new epic urban fantasy adventure unlike anything seen before.
If you like the Dresden Files, Mercy Thompson or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then you’ll be helplessly addicted to the Mortality Bites series.
"Mythology, satire, and brutal honesty. Vance delivers a knockout punch of fun and fearlessness in every last one of his books. Not only does he make you laugh, he makes you think. That's a rare combination that few authors ever achieve, and Vance does it splendidly." — John P. Logsdon, author of the Paranormal Police Department series.
What Amazon readers are saying about the GoneGod World:
★★★★★ ‘Urban Fantasy at its best.’
★★★★★ ‘Irritatingly unputdownable.’

★★★★★ ‘Oh I needed that ... Something different.’
The Better Demons Series takes place in the GoneGod World... an inspiring and unique setting of myths, magic and mischief. But what is the GoneGod World?
Four years ago, the gods left. All of them. Their last message to humanity was "Thank you for believing in us, but it is not enough. We're leaving. Good luck."
At first no one took them seriously. Until, that is, all the denizens of all the heavens and hells started showing up on people's doorsteps.
Creatures from every religion, mythology, folklore or fairytale now live among us, mortal and homeless. Trouble is, after eons of living forever, elves, dragons, dwarves, oni-demons, even friggin’ Medusa aren't very good at being mortal.
Welcome to the GoneGod World...where myths are real and even demons want to better themselves.

Athena claims he is fated to succeed, but even she admits that fate is not a single path but a road with many forks. Has her intervention helped him become the hero he was meant to be? Or has she doomed him to a life of failure?
Even though Nightshade's gone, his plan is still unfolding. The nymphs want to destroy one of the biggest cities in Pennsylvania, a place full of factories.
Rose needs to learn how to use her nymph powers if she wants to have a fighting chance. When she learns she's no average human, Rose starts to question her loyalty to humanity.
Gabriel's connection with reality is fading. He hides his condition to help Rose, but at what cost?
This second book in the nymph's revenge series is perfect for fans of Jen Calonita’s “Mirror Mirror” and M. Lynn's "Golden Curse."

Kim always wanted to be a fireman, if only because of the hat. When his naval officer father is killed in a minor skirmish with the enemy nation of Karupatani, all of Kim’s plans are sent awry.

Several years later, as the prince’s faithful squire, Kim is sent on a top secret mission back to the land of his father’s killers. His task is to deliver a package, something that is intended to change the world, but tragically for everyone, and most especially Kim, he accidentally dies in a most unbecoming way.
In the meantime, Queen Suraya of Karupatani is disgusted with her life, her husband and three sons, and most of all her favorite maid. The girl got herself knocked up out of wedlock by a married unnamed duke, who she mistakenly thinks will take care of her forever. During her absence, the maid is replaced by an ugly Hahrian girl, who has arrived with a recommendation from Suraya’s counterpart, the Hahrian Queen.
Odd as it may be, the Hahrian maid holds the key to finally ceasing the endless wars forever.
"A great evil will be coming back into the world... and in two weeks' time, it will rain chocolate."
Enter the life of Jek - a humble lighthouse steward on the southern coast of Jast-Madiir. Along with his wife (whose name is Aaliyah… or was it Audrey?), Jek must daily meet the expectations of an iron-fisted dictatorship, a global dragon-Inquisition, and a clerical order of flying jellyfish-like creatures churning out new surveys at a dizzying pace. All-in-all, a fairly predictable tedium. But when any little demerit on his next inspection could cost him his life, it can be hard sometimes to keep from stressing out!
Of course, if Jek knew half the things at play just beyond his sleepy shores, he would be very stressed indeed. Neighboring Tophthaera is reeling under the Twin Queens’ civil war. To the north, insurrection threatens to claim the island of Maenea for the cause of “Free-Dome” – a very strange and unsettling new ideology. Even the stable nations must decide how to deal with the recent, accidental discovery of magic. And all the while, the threat of Onyxadon’s inevitable return clouds every counsel. Only the strength and wisdom of the Grand Inquisitor would seem adequate to avail against these many calamities. But he has been dormant for seventy-five years now.
Jek is, at best, dimly aware of such things… and perhaps better suited than anyone to be an ineffectual bystander anyway. But those luxuries are burst quite suddenly when he meets a crotchety old sailor man, only to be swept into a hair-brained Noble Quest to find the Knights of the Indigo Lodge, expose a secret Doom Fleet, and unravel the dreaded mystery of Proconsul Zedulon’s infamous “Chocolate Prophecy.”
