Friday's Featured Freebies: Ever Shade by Alexia Purdy & Cursed by Casey Odell

Another week has come and gone - so it is time for Friday's Featured Freebie. This week has been a LONG one with some triumphs - we got our first review request from self published author, C.E. Wilson and Melissa got our Facebook page, The Big Book Binge up and running. Then there were some setbacks - trying to locate the widgets I see and love on other blogger's pages. At the same time, I am trying to configure and personalize our blog. As my boyfriend cautioned me, Rome was not built in a day so I guess this blog won't be either. Melissa and I are still determining what we want our viewers to get from our blog when they visit it - which is pretty much to talk, breathe and love books (or occasionally a movie based on a book). In all actuality, we are not that extreme, but some days it is debatable. Since we are in the beginning stages of our blog creation, I am interested to hear what you are looking for as a blog viewer and what you want to see more of from book blogs?

It has been a long week so I am going to share two freebies today because we all deserve free stuff every once in a while other than Saturday's junk mail.

A dark twist on Faeries.

For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie. Magic and malice abound and nothing is what it really seems to be.

The evil Unseelie Queen and her treacherous allies are round every corner as Shade makes her way across the breathtaking landscapes of the world of Faerie, which exists alongside the mundane human world. Shade discovers her own uncharted magic and meets some of the most powerful warriors in Faerie while battling evil dryads, conniving Teleen guards and challenges on her life with every step in a world where nothing can be taken for granted.

The night Claire Tanith’s small village is attacked, her mother sends her alone into the cursed forest, the one she’d been forbidden to enter all her life with these mysterious words: ‘They will protect you.’

On the run from her attackers, she soon finds the forest is not as abandoned as she’d once thought.

Beautiful and elegant, the elves seem to be everything the legends said they would be. But legends sometimes forget the true history of things and Claire’s eyes are soon opened to a world she never knew. One that has been kept from her for most of her life. All Claire wants to do is return home and start looking for her mother, the only family she ever had. But the elves have different plans. The mysterious mark that appeared on her arm isn’t a curse, at least not to them anyway, and before she knows it, she is whisked away on a mission she never agreed to, unless they help her in return.

Now she is stuck on an adventure with the perverted elf, Aeron, and one with an attitude, Farron. But there is more to this adventure than she’d ever hoped for.
