I’ve been delayed in my ambitions to get to the next tranche of free books cluttering up my Kindle. Partially, this is because I’m still reading a few of the books from the first two updates, and I don’t want to get even more confused. There’s another good reason as well, but it’s a secret for now, so you’ll have to bear with for a few weeks.
Might as well pick the candidates, though:
Why I picked it up: Sharp cover, neat blurb with plot evocative of Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven. Sold – at least, for free!
Why I picked it up: Intriguing blurb promised something that didn’t take itself seriously while having a good time, tackling tropes with a knowing wink.
Why I picked it up: I like a mistaken-identity fugitive mystery, though I’d probably prefer if it weren’t centred on a mage.
Why I picked it up: Prequel novella (it turns out) to a popular series, wanted to see what the fuss was about.
Why I picked it up: “Clockpunk” concept sounded interesting, though it’s a bit outside my normal genre boundaries (though it does say it’s Epic). Cover was nice. Bit confused about the author’s identity…
Why I picked it up: Liked the brazen feminist outlook, had doubts about the production values.
Why I picked it up: Novel concept sounded interesting.
Why I picked it up: Kept seeing it here and there, possibly via Twitter.
