E-Book Savings: Free E-Book from Barnes & Nobles

Free E-book offer from Barnes & Noble

by
 Leanna Rene Hieber

Six young men and women are called to protect the living world from the dead in Hieber's Gothic romance debut. Mysterious powers give Alexi and his peers the mission of keeping the restless dead in line and seeking a prophesied seventh guardian. Miss Percy Parker, an albino orphan with a talent for languages, fills none of their expectations, but Alexi is drawn to her all the same. Hieber draws Victorian London as beautiful and grim, with depictions of Jack the Ripper as a nightmarish many-headed hound alongside charming descriptions of the Athens Academy, Percy's boarding school, and Greek mythology that smartly draws together various elements of the story. The supporting characters are nuanced and appealing but given short shrift by the narrow focus on Percy and Alexi, though future sequels may give them more room to play. Hieber's debut shows great potential, and readers will want to revisit her intriguing world.

Barnes and Noble has it's own version of the Amazon Kindle.  Their version is the Nook.   Just like the Kindle, you don't have to own the e-reader.  You can download the reader to your PC, iPhone or iTouch. Blackberry or Mac and now the iPad.
