A little late posting here but just wanted to share that Smashwords is having a Read an Ebook Week where you can download an ebook from their site for a discount or for free. There are tons to choose from including Aeva: The Last Hope. This book is currently free but only until March 11th.
Aeva: The Last Hope is a story about an ex-pilot named Rowen Teschner who just wants to move on with his life after being discharged from his prominent position. On top of that, his newly wedded wife was taken from him by an alien general named, Krane Altontaur. Teschner wants nothing to do with the general or his ex-wife, but the more he fights it, the more he’s pushed to return to face his enemy.
NOTE: This is a space opera sci-fi with military action and a touch of real-life romance that both men and women will enjoy. It’s rated 18+ with mature content.
Title: The Dawn Chorus Author: Samantha Shannon Genre: Sci-fi, Paranormal, New Adult Year Published: 2020
The Dawn Chorus is a novella between The Song Rising (the 3rd book in the Bone Season series), and the upcoming 4th book, The Mask Falling. The novella doesn’t give anything away from the main story. It basically delves into Paige’s pain and suffering from the last book. It also gives us a glimpse more into Paige and Warden’s relationship.
It’s been awhile since I read The Song Rising so I really don’t remember exactly what happened. I do remember that Paige escaped to Paris and that she wasn’t doing well. If you are interested in how Paige heals and how she gains the strength to fight back, then give this novella a go, otherwise, it’s totally fine to just wait for The Mask Falling.
Title: The Pale Dreamer Author: Samantha Shannon Genre: Sci-fi, paranormal, new adult Year Published: 2016
The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon is a prequel novella to The Bone Season series. It gives us a taste of Paige Mahoney’s first job with mime-lord, Jaxon Hall. The story takes place when Paige is sixteen, three years before The Bone Season.
In this story, Paige is given the opportunity to use her ability as a dreamwalker to prove to the mime-lord and her cohorts that she is worthy of working with them. The job was to track down a poltergeist as a team. It turns out, Paige did a lot more than what she thought she could do and what the others thought she was capable of. This gets Jaxon’s attention and he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
I read The Bone Season series up to book three (The Song Rising). Book four is not out yet but should be later this year. The Pale Dreamer was a free download from the publisher on Instagram. I had plans to read this novella but kept forgetting and new books kept being added to my TBR list pushing this one even further back. I’m glad that I came across the ad. It was worth it to know how Paige joined Jaxon’s team of clairvoyants and how she became his most important member.
