Get your book ordering fingers ready.

Thanks to a wonderful book video blog (book vlog?) I discovered a great new place to order books from. It’s called Book Outlet. They have some amazing deals and great shipping prices. For the US it’s just $3.99 for the first 1 or 2 books and then just $0.50 a book after that. I just ordered 15 books (9 hardback & 6 paperback) for under $71 including shipping.

I think I’m really going to like this site. You can even create a wishlist to make it easier to keep an eye out for the books you want.

An example of their great prices. I just ordered a book for $2.99, Amazon wants $9.99 for the exact same book. They get some of their books from publishers as returns from bookstore overstock, so the books might have an ink mark on the edge of the pages, but for that much of a discount who cares.

I’ll be sure to post an update when they arrive and let you know how long shipping took and how the books look when they get here.

UPDATE:

IMG_0458

So far I’m super happy with my Book Outlet​ shopping/shipping experience.
I placed my 1st order on Saturday, April 25th. I received my shipping notice email on Monday, April 27th and my books arrived on Saturday, May 2nd. I can’t believe they arrived in 1 week (NY to IA). I’m sure it will take longer sometimes due to holidays or sales that Book Outlet is having that cause them to be a bit busier, But I’m still super excited about how quickly they arrived.
The only down side to this order was that the shipping number provided didn’t work. When I clicked the link it took me to UPS Canada, but my order actually shipped USPS. I tried entering the number on the USPS site and they said no package with that number existed. Not sure what the mix up was there. All in all I had a great 1st experience with Book Outlet and I will definitely be buying more books from them.
Book Outlet also has a Canadian site so if you are in the US make sure you use the US website or shipping will cost you more. http://bookoutlet.com/

Gwarda Warriors series – by Madison Thorne Grey

Madison Thorne Grey is currently offering all 3 of her ebooks for FREE on Amazon.

I’m not sure how long this offer will last so hurry over and take a look.

 

Magnificence (Gwarda Warriors book#1)

“Magnificence is an adult fantasy/paranormal romance novel.”

oie_10225453K5pkXJ52

Book description:
Arturro and Isobel had the kind of love that lasts forever
In the fantasy realm above, known as Vehaven, the heartfelt action of a god inspires the creation of a new race of warriors.
A love which was lost long ago will alter the destinies of many.
Wharick, the leader of a new race of green-eyed warriors finds more than beasts and gypsies to battle when he discovers his stubborn, beautiful mate in the midst of a dark forest he is now to call home.
Born with the same binds around his wrists as his Gwarda brethren, he is the chosen leader: the Gwardian. He must unite and lead the new race of cursed warriors who now live in the black forest of Surchin. He fights with the fire of a god; he kills the roaming beasts, battles the darkness, strives only to fulfill the purpose he is constantly beckoned by the gods to achieve. However, his priorities are altered the day he hears the voice of his Destoul, his soul’s destiny. She is in the forest and she is wounded. He will stop at nothing to find her, possess her, and kill whoever dares to harm what belongs to him.
As regenerated souls find each other once again.
Keirah and her younger druid sisters are all marked with a gem as it magically appears embedded in their bodies. Now they find themselves without parents and forced to live with strangers. They soon flee from the fires of their new home into the forests that hold the most vile, the Karpartha gypsies, and the god of death’s minions, known as Kravens. They are held captive, victimized, and then separated.
Keirah begins her journey to find her beloved sisters and, while doing so, finds the destiny of her heart. She is instantly struck by the intense attraction between the Gwardian and her. Being raised fiercely independent, she struggles to admit her need and desire for the Gwarda male, because in doing so, it threatens to destroy the shields she has built up to protect her heart.
The Gwarda Warriors series
Had Keirah and her sisters known what was set in motion the day their stones appeared and how personally they would be affected by it, they would have still fought the darkness, still battled for what belonged to them. Anguish had fallen upon their people as darkness encompassed their land, but through the darkness there came light.
The new race of warriors would be their hope, their salvation, their loves’ destiny. But they too could be tainted. They too could be seduced by the black forces they had been created to fight against. If measuring by this earthly realm’s time then it’s been years but in the unseen realm above known as Vehaven, it has been but a moment.
Love knew no bounds, knew no limitations. It looked beyond the unseen realm and reached in for a taste, for a moment of regenerated happiness, and in that moment fate was altered and the destinies of many were changed.
Their land, their Northbrook, they discovered, was a very magical place.”

Sustenance (Gwarda Warriors book#2)

“Sustenance is an adult fantasy/paranormal romance novel.”

oie_1022566P5908hJb

Book description:
“When the one you love and hunger for, is out there…

Kathel, the gypsy Gwarda warrior has a mission: find his Destoul, Mahgen, claim her as his own, and return to the dark forest of Surchin to unite with his Gwarda brothers. Passion and hidden power ignite inside Kathel. Soon his troubled past and secrets will be revealed, and he must battle more than dark forces and black beasts. He will also struggle with his own heart in order to remain with the mate who is his destiny.

You do whatever it takes to find them…

Mahgen is on the verge of giving up when her Destoul, the destiny of her soul, finds her and saves her life. Thrilled to be with her mate, Mahgen now carries with her the horrid memories of the months held captive by evil Karpartha gypsies. Will Kathel forgive what she had to do to survive? Can they look beyond the secrets and pain to see their love overcome all?”

 

Recompense (Gwarda Warriors book#3)

“Recompense is an adult paranormal romance with fantasy elements.”

oie_10225735Wu8hAY0W

Book description:

“Darius is a broken warrior who has survived abuse. He had given up hope of becoming what he considered a normal, acceptable male and has hid behind years of anger, resulting in an icy cold heart. Having killed the traitor Gwarda responsible for his brother’s death, he once again sets out to find his abuser from long ago, hoping to finally find peace. Will he live up to his nickname, Savage? Will he return to his Gwarda brothers and join them in the fight against Lucius, the god of death? Can he overcome his past and feel worthy enough to deserve his beautiful Destoul who seems to have appeared out of nowhere?
Sorvus has longed to live in the human realm as her druid mother once had. Being a half-breed in Vehaven, the realm above, has been troublesome to say the least, and having Lucius, the god of death as your father didn’t help matters much either. So when Sorvus sees in a vision that her Destoul, her soul’s one true mate, destined only for her, will be one of the new race, the Gwarda warriors, she is more than eager to begin her adventure. What she hopes to be a fairytale-like romance turns out to be challenging when she finds herself struggling to break through Darius’s cold heart. Darkness surrounds her in the human realm as the god-side of her sees dark and malevolent entities and feels the sting of death itself. Will she ever win the heart of her troubled mate? Will she be able to survive in the human realm where evil abounds?”

Born in Flames (book #1)

BornInFlames-sm

Book description:

“Red mirrored scales race up my arms as the haze of pain blurs my vision. My bones crack, breaking to realign. I scream. It is then that the realization of my unavoidable fate sinks in; I am of a dying race. I am a dragon.

Aurora Megalos, orphaned and teetering on the edge of adulthood, thought finding her past would curb the sting of being an outcast. Having no memories of the time before she awoke on her foster mother’s doorstep, she yearns for the emptiness inside her to be filled. With her fellow orphaned best friend, Fenn, by her side, she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But something powerful stirred within her that she couldn’t explain. Something wanted out.

In the dark of night, a crazed Seer erases everything she’s ever known with an impending prophecy. She now faces two paths. Return to her true home to protect a dying race against a growing evil, or stay hidden in the safety of our realm with a shot at a true love. With a vengeful Arch Enemy stopping at nothing to see her dead, she’s running out of time; a decision must be made. What would you choose?”

My Review of this book:

Born in Flames is a fun, fairly fast paced, safe read for all YA readers.
With lots of questions to be answered in a short amount of time, this book will keep you wondering who Aurora should trust and who she should hide from. I really enjoyed Aurora’s character and look forward to following her adventures in Embracing the Flames.
(note: There are a few bad words used in this book, but nothing excessive.)

Embracing the Flames (book #2)

EmbracingTheFlames-sm

Book description:

“The Stone of Immortality has always been kept under the watch of the Draconta. That is, until the betrayal of a Fate. Now, everything is about to change.

Aurora Megalos accepted her destiny without blinking-even if it meant succumbing to her dragon side. Deemed the Progeny, she left the ordinary life she knew and has done everything in her power to learn the ways of her new home and what it means to be part dragon. But when her mentor, Astral, suddenly disappears, she is forced to take the reins with war on the brink. She sets out on an epic journey to find what her arch enemy, Zordon, is after. What she discovers is far worse than she could’ve ever imagined. She will be tested and pushed to the limit. Lives will be lost, love will be found, and most importantly, a battle will begin.”

From the Embers (book #3)

FromtheEmbers-sm

Book description:

“I am the Progeny. The one deemed to carry this weight. The weight of knowing too much. Of knowing there is a darkness in me. Of knowing that even The Fates can screw things up.

Aurora Megalos knew becoming the Progeny meant great sacrifice, but what she wasn’t prepared for was sacrificing herself. Since the day of her birth, she has been set on a path she couldn’t control; a path conceived by The Fates. After discovering she is mortally connected to her arch enemy, Zordon-a son of a Fate, Aurora is left with a path that seems hopeless.

Until she discovers a revelation in the prophecy.

With war on the horizon, she must find a way to defeat the one who threatens to take everything and everyone she has ever loved from her, without destroying herself. The barrier between both realms is broken, The Fates have been overrun by Zordon, and his darkness now spreads throughout the lands. The odds are stacked against her. Will Aurora and Fenn find a way to undo the work of The Fates in time to save the realms from complete destruction?”

A Construct of Angels: The Angels of York book #1

oie_422424AWjPEz3t

Book description:

“After triggering the spontaneous resurrection of a dead student, an ordinarily routine day for York-based paramedic Sara Finn erupts into a series of events that propel her on a terrifying journey, promising to forever change her pragmatic opinions of life and death.

Still haunted by her domineering and abusive stepfather and driven by a life-long search for her missing younger brother, Sara finds herself caught in the crossfire between warring forces, powerful beyond human comprehension, that threaten to plunge civilization into a hellish chaos and eternal darkness.

This, the first (but self-contained) in the ‘Angels of York’ series, follows Sara’s increasingly dangerous adventures during the six days that lead up to the September Equinox, a time of increasing darkness. As the population of York is plunged into panic, overwhelming the emergency services, Sara finds her loyalties torn between her new-found companion, now incarcerated within York’s largest mental institution, and her sworn medical duties.

Should she lend any credence to his insistence that his purpose on Earth is to prevent an imminent catastrophe? Or that it is being orchestrated from within the city itself?

As her nights are filled with terrifying dreams and she is once again confronted by the memories of her abusive childhood, Sara is forced to accept that only one avenue remains open to her – to put her own life to one side in order to help prevent the rapidly approaching doomsday.”
