Fantasy

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.  

The Shadow Order (Crossroads Witch Book 1)

by J.S. Malcom


Either I defeat the monster, or I become the monster.

As if being locked up in the crazy house wasn't bad enough, I wake up to discover that my nightmares are coming true. As in, the person I trust most in the world just morphed into a bloodthirsty monster. My only chance for escape comes in the form of two women who start calling out from within a shimmering tunnel. So, it's either stick around and get murdered or jump through some kind of portal. And there I was thinking my new meds were working.

I take Door Number Two and find myself ushered into the world of the Shadow Order, an ancient society of witches dedicated to protecting the covens. (Who me, a witch? Well, that sure explains a few things.) I'm given a choice: I can either go it alone and take my chances, or join their magical training program. Seeing as one option involves dying, I soon find myself alongside other young witches learning how to hone their magic. The problem being I didn't even know I had magic, never mind how to use it. There's also the small issue of it being unique enough to act as some sort of monster-luring beacon. While we know next to nothing about the supernatural psycho on the loose, we do know it changes form by hopping in and out of other peoples' bodies. And, right now, the body it wants most is mine. Why don't I find that flattering?

The Shadow Order (Crossroads Witch Book 1) is a fast-paced, unpredictable new urban fantasy that readers are calling "amazing," "with strong female leads," and "full of excitement!" If you like snarky kickass heroines, fast-paced action, magic, witchcraft and romance, then grab it today!

Chronicles of an Urban Druid Boxed Set #1 (Books 1-3)

by Michael Anderle


Ye screw with this lass, ye get put on yer ass.

Meet Fionna mac Cumhaill an urban druid coming into her powers and trying to master them. Get the first three books of the Chronicles of an Urban Druid series in this boxed set to join her adventures.

A Gilded Cage

Ye screw with this lass, ye get put on yer ass.

Life sucker-punched me...

I have family I didn’t know about, a magical heritage laying its claim, and a mystery I apparently need to solve.

There are three things I love most in life…my wild and crazy Irish family, Redbreast Whiskey at Shenanigans, and living in Toronto.

Having grown up with five older brothers, I can fight my way out of most situations, either with my wicked sense of humor or my fists. Often both. But when a back-alley brawl leaves me marked with a bizarre Celtic crest on my back, I become a beacon for all things whacked and weird.

My dad is obviously freaked when he sees the tat, but he won’t discuss it.

So, I do what any stubborn red-headed lass would—I ignore all advice and fly to the Emerald Isle to get answers.

And yeah…you know that saying about hindsight being 20/20?

True Story.

Look out, druid world.This mac Cumhaill is like no other.

Will Fiona survive coming into her powers? Will those in Ireland survive Fiona? Can Toronto survive an urban druid and her mythical bear?

A Sacred Grove

My outlook on life isn’t complicated—any day that passes when nobody tries to kill me or someone I love gets put into the ‘good day’ column. Simple, right?

Lately, good days have been hard to come by.

Since I totally ignored Da’s warning three months ago and flew to Ireland to embrace our super-secret heritage, I’ve seen the world in a different light—a mythical and magical light.

I am a Druid.

And even though Da and my brothers are all cops, I seemed destined to put out fires. Seriously, the scramble to survive never ends. From quests heaped on me from ancient ancestors, to trampy witches, to misogynistic hobgoblins, I’m pretty much screwed from the get-go. Oh, and don’t forget Barghest. Yeah, those druid Black Dog wannabes are still around and more determined than ever to see us eliminated.

Someone should tell them the best way to make sure I do ;something is to tell me I can’t.

Yeah-no, like Han Solo said… "Never tell me the odds."

A Family Oath

Since being marked as the heir apparent I’ve been stabbed, kidnapped, black-listed, tortured, targeted, and accused of being the cause of pretty much every magical mishap that’s hit the streets of Toronto.

To some, I’m a nuisance, to others a curiosity, and others still—a problem to be eliminated.

Whatevs, haters gotta hate.

But when a mushroom cloud of dark and dangerous falls over my family and friends, there is nothing to be done but answer the call and fight. Who’s manipulating things behind the scenes? Who’s coming after the people I care about? 

And who the hell is stupid enough to think resurrecting the evil Morgan le Fey is a good idea?

Yeah-no, it's not.

With evil brewing, enemies running rampant, and The Lakeshore Guild of Empowered Ones ineffective at policing its members, my family and cool new friends set out to right the wrongs of our world.

Be the change, am I right?

Magical Twist: Paranormal Women's Fiction (Midlife Witchery Book 3)

by Brenda Trim


Rumor has it that midlife is for drinking wine, traveling, and discovering the joy of life. But there's no rest for the wicked. Or for a Fae-witch hybrid like myself.

Danger follows me everywhere - even to the grocery store - as the evil entity continues to stalk supernaturals in Cottlehill Wilds. But I barely have time to worry about that now that the Fae Queen is dead.

My bad. No, seriously. I let my power loose and it took over.

Leaving Grams behind to return to Eidothea and fight a war wasn't exactly in my plans. As usual, I'm totally clueless. At least I have my orthotic inserts to keep me on my feet and Sebastian and his irresistible kisses to lift my spirits when things go wrong.

And let's face it: things are going to go wrong.

Just because I can cast a spell without burning off my eyebrows now doesn't mean I can survive giant trolls, bogharts, or the insane Fae King. And since my best friends refuse to let me face this battle alone, the stress of saving the realm and the people I love most in both worlds is threatening to turn me prematurely grey.

Sometimes being the Guardian really sucks.

There, threatened by unknown enemies, and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, his mind journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history.

Ash (The Alt Apocalypse Book 1)

by Tom Abrahams


A NUCLEAR ATTACK. A COLLAPSING SOCIETY. A WORLD COVERED IN ASH.

The Alt Apocalypse is the newest ground-breaking series from Tom Abrahams.

It explores survival under the most extreme circumstances, but with a twist (and no cliff-hangers).This series, which can be read in any order, features the same core characters in each complete story. But every book dunks them into a new, alternate apocalypse; a nuclear holocaust, an earthquake, a flood, a wildfire, a hurricane, a plague, and even zombies.  

Different heroes will emerge in each novel. Different characters will survive and perish. Your favorite character dies in one book? He or she will be back in the next. In the end you'll unwind the loose thread that connects every character and every stand-alone story.  

In ASH, Abrahams tells the story of four college friends, an ex-con, a lonely fry cook, and a secretive group of prepared civilians as they each battle to survive in southern California after a series of nuclear attacks. Theirs is a gray world covered in ash and nuclear fallout. 

Do they hunker down? Do they bug out? Do they find their salvation above ground or below?

The Last Vampire Complete Series Omnibus

by Judith Berens et al

 

Would you adopt a 400-year-old teenager? How about one with fangs?

The Last Vampire boxed set is an exciting 8 book series all available in one GIANT collection! Grab yours now for an extremely fantastic low price!

The Girl Behind The Wall:

Vicki was put into a deep sleep and has no clue centuries have passed. That is, until she’s accidentally woken up by a father and daughter on a vacation.

Cars? Cell phones? What’s an Instagram? How can Craig and Alexis explain the world?

No one said educating a teenage vampire would be easy.

The Girl in The Back Row:

High school means classes, making friends, hanging out, cutting classes… and keeping your fangs to yourself. Watch out world, this teen’s bite is worse than her bark.

Welcome to public school Vampire teen. Keep an eye out for the ones who would rather put you back in a box, but this time forever.

Vicki is getting a crash course in teenage life, if she can just keep her true nature hidden.

Fortunately, she wants to make new friends more than mayhem. Too bad others aren’t going to make that so easy.

The Girl With A Secret:

Vickie’s a 400-year-old teenage vampire in a suburban public school. Combine that with vampire strength and speed, mix in typical teenage impulse control and trouble follows.

Her new dad, Craig and adopted sister, Alexis are having trouble helping Vickie keep her identity under wraps – especially as classmates realize there’s something different about her.

Is time running out? Reports of a Last Vampire are getting back to the centuries old Circle. Dedicated to hunting down vampires, they are getting closer to tracking her down.

The GIrl In Plain Sight:

New semester. New classes. New challenges. Can a 400-year-old teenage vampire learn to control her powers enough to manage the halls of public school? And not bite anyone of course…

Vickie is making friends with a new girl, someone Alexis doesn’t trust. Alexis is starting a romance with Will, and Vickie smells trouble. Are the girls worried about the wrong things or can they help each other out?

The Girl Unleashed:

No matter the century, being a teenage vampire is hard when there’s no one around to teach you how to be cool, date and lift a car out of the way without getting caught.

Vickie has grown into a rockstar vampire with her powers, but she can still cause harm. Not a good way to stay hidden when everyone has the number to TMZ and a camera in their pocket. Selfie with the teenage vampire anyone?

Social media can bite worse than a vampire’s fangs.

The Girl Revealed:

Even though she’s a 400-year-old teenager, Vickie still hasn’t grasped the dangers of modern technology. Everyone has a cellphone and can catch anything on video… It’s only a matter of time before our favorite hero with fangs ends up on everyone’s small screen.

The Girl Retreats:

Vickie is using her power more and more often without getting caught. Our girl is growing overconfident. Not a good thing for a teenage vampire in hiding.

Better for a 400-year-old teen vampire to retreat and survive another day in America.

Viral videos don’t just go away.

The Agency is closing in on her. They want the last vampire dead and buried, but this time forever.

The Girl Triumphant:

Is the teenage vampire going to be a government science experiment?

The Legacy of a Vampire Witch: The Complete Urban Fantasy Boxset

by Theophilus Monroe


5 books and 1200+ pages of vampires, witches, and New Orleans Voodoo fill this complete urban fantasy boxset.

My name's Mercy Brown-but don't let my name fool you. I'm merciless.

Book 1: Bloody Hell 

It had been almost a century and a half since I last encountered anyone from the Order of the Morning Dawn. They were religious fundamentalists with the dual goal of eliminating vampires and witches.

Being both a vampire and a witch I was the embodiment of everything the Order hates. Their first attempt to eliminate me failed. Thanks to the fact that my mentor in the Craft was also a necromancer.

When they burned my heart they didn’t kill me. They unwittingly completed a spell that tied my existence to the soul of one who took my place in hell.

Now I’m heartless, literally.

Not having a heart has some advantages. It means I’m pretty resilient, especially when it comes to wooden stakes.

So long as the soul bound to my existence remained in hell, I was virtually invincible.

But the Order figured it out. They hope to redeem the soul who was damned in my stead. If they do that, I’ll meet the true death for sure.  I have to capture the one damned in my place before the Order manages to liberate him from perdition. If they free him, I will die.

I have to go to bloody hell.

Also included...

Book 2: Bloody Mad:   A Vampire in an asylum? Like that's going to end well...

Book 3: Bloody Wicked: Taking on a horde of demon possessed vampires? Time to get wicked!

Book 4: Bloody Devils: We were the terrors of New Orleans. And humanity's only hope.

Book 5: Bloody Gods: I've always been the hunter... now I'm the hunted.

What are readers saying about The Legacy of a Vampire Witch? 

★★★★★ It gets better with each book!! Loved Mercy in this one. She has her humanity that most vampires don’t have yet she can be crazy devil could care less persona with her new power she got. I just love her. She is so complex...High recommed if you want a different take on vampires and witches. (Amazon Reviewer)

★★★★★ I absolutely love Mercy! She is tricked into becoming an immortal vampire, and her heart ripped from her. From the 1st book I was captivated by her inner demons and her determination to be totally heartless. Yet she loves and feels compelled to rid the world of demons and evil, so not in line with what a vampire should be! She finds friends and long lost family and together they save humanity. From werewolves to witches, to demons hellbent on taking over the world, Mercy and company are a delight to follow! Well written, highly recommended. (Amazon Reviewer)

★★★★★ This awesome box set was such a thrill to read...I highly recommend this awesome box set to everyone who loves reading about witches and vampires.

Girl Under Water

by Tim McBain


Her numb fingers scrabble over upholstery, over metal, over glass, searching for a way out. Water stings her eyes as she’s dragged downward, clinging to her last breath as she’s absorbed into the cold dark below…

When Gloria Carmichael’s body is found broken and bleeding on the sidewalk just days after knocking on Detective Charlie Winters’ door begging for help to locate her father’s will, Charlie’s instinct is confirmed: her latest case is about more than just a simple family feud.

The Carmichaels are famous in Salem Island for their large family and charitable work, but, moments before she died, beautiful, trustworthy eldest daughter Gloria called Charlie to say she had uncovered a terrible secret that would break the mystery of her father’s death wide open.

With the voice of her murdered sister ringing in her ears—pushing her to risk everything to bring justice to the innocent—Charlie takes matters into her own hands. She won’t let another family break apart like her own, and she knows the answers she needs are hidden somewhere inside the Carmichael home.

But as Charlie races to confront her main suspect—a file containing evidence that will devastate the Carmichael family on the car seat beside her—she’s rammed off the road and over the edge of a nearby cliff. Fighting for breath in a sinking car, Charlie has to survive or other innocent lives will be taken. Everyone involved is keeping secrets, but only one twisted soul is prepared to kill to keep theirs…
