Free ebooks are the best. They’re a great way for readers to try new series risk-free, and they help authors reach new audiences. But there’s just so many of them that it can be hard to find one you like.

Book Description

Dive into six full-length urban fantasy novels by USA Today and national bestselling authors!

Escape into tales of shifters and sorceresses, gamers and bakers, demons and artifact hunters, plus one very mischievous Norse god. Full of adventure, mystery, romance, and plenty of snark, these novels will immerse you in magical worlds while you turn pages far into the night.

Huntress Born by Aimee Easterling – Werewolf and baker Ember leaves her pack to hunt for her missing half brother. But with danger growing on all sides, it’s only a matter of time before she gets burned. By an author described as a “good choice for Patricia Briggs fans.”

Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta – Half-demon and half-human, Muse tried to lead an ordinary life. But when an underworld assassin comes after her, she must embrace her powers—and make a formidable deal with the Prince of Greed.

Justice Calling by Annie Bellet – Between hiding out from her evil ex-boyfriend who wants to steal her power and keeping her friends safe from dangerous magics, Jade Crow has all the problems. For fans of The Dresden Files and the Iron Druid, this is a nerdy urban fantasy full of snark and fireballs.

Getting Wilde by Jenn Stark – Tarot-reading artifact hunter Sara Wilde can find anything, for a price. Then a wickedly sexy magician offers her the ultimate challenge: Sneak behind Vatican walls…and steal the Devil himself. Globe-trotting, fast-paced, high-stakes adventure perfect for fans of Darynda Jones, Faith Hunter, and Ilona Andrews!

Wolves by C. Gockel – When Amy prays for help, Loki the Norse God of mischief and Chaos isn’t the savior she has in mind. Loki can’t resist Amy’s summons, but he can insist that she help him outwit Odin, ruler of the Nine Realms. The start of an epic urban fantasy with myth, magic, and mayhem!

Empowered: Agent by Dale Ivan Smith – The world says those possessing superpowers are either heroes or villains. But what if you’re both? Former rogue empowered Mathilda Brandt must return to villainy in order to save her family and thousands of others from a psychotic criminal mastermind.

My Thoughts

I’ve been doing Free Ebook Friday for a few months now, and I’m already cheating a bit. I like to feature books that I’ve read, and I haven’t read every book in this box set.

I have read Justice Calling by Annie Bellet, which is currently 99¢ on its own, so you may as well get it for free in this box set along with the other stories–one of which is Empowered: Agent by Dale Ivan Smith.

Empowered: Agent is superhero novel with a near-future dystopia vibe, where people with powers have two choices: sign up for the government superhero team or never use their powers ever. The main character is a former outlaw hero trying to stay on the straight and narrow after getting out of jail. She ends up working for a shady government organization in order to get the medicine that will keep her grandmother alive. It’s a cool setup, and you should definitely check it out.

Justice Calling is another great read. It’s got a fun cast of nerdy, magical characters, a nice bit of romance with a tiger shifter, and one of my favorite tropes: a heroine who’s secretly 100% more badass than she pretends to be but has to keep her powers secret for various reasons. It’s an action-packed urban fantasy that I devoured and would definitely recommend.

I have no idea how long this collection will be free for, so download it while you can!



And if anyone’s read the other books in the set, let me know your thoughts on them in the comments. Happy reading!

If Kristen Brand could have any superpower, she'd want telekinesis so she wouldn't have to move from her computer to pour a new cup of tea. She spends far too much time on the internet, and when she's not writing, she's usually reading novels or comic books. Icon by @heckosart.
