6 Free Kindle Books for Young Adults

Because yesterday's post was so short, I thought I would make today's a bit longer. Remember that these books may only be free for a limited time.


Cursed by Tara Brown

Some girls have all the luck and the love, Aimee James is not one of these girls. Luck avoids her at all costs and love couldn't be further away.
That is until the fateful night she agrees to attend her first party, ever.
She loses her best friend while accidentally stealing another and meets a stranger, no one else can see, who sets her body aflame with desire.
Things heat up and Aimee finds herself in love with two guys at once but as bad luck would have it she also finds her life on the line.
She must choose between living and loving for the first time.
The questions she must ask herself, Is it worth it to live forever if the person you love doesn't know you're alive, literally? Or is it better to die with their kiss upon your lips?


Starfire Angels by Melanie Nilles


They've been coming here for thousands of years, using Earth as a sanctuary to escape threats from their own kind. Mankind knows them as angels, and one of them left a child upon her death to be raised as a human.

Raea is now a high school senior and her life as a human is about to end. The crystal shard she bears is not a pretty pendant; it's a collective of powerful entities who chose her as their Keeper, a protector of one of the four shards that power a machine capable of destroying whole worlds. Those who desire the Starfire's power have sent an agent to find her, but she's too busy evading a nosy reporter ready to exploit her secret and dating a hot new foreign student to notice. Nevermind learning what she really is.

Only one person on Earth can help her, the last person she ever expected. But he's not from Earth. Life as a human would be so much easier.


Storytellers by Martin C Sharlow

Thousands of years ago, the great Sage Montok Waynew signed the Book Accords, in which it was declared that all books must edify and instruct for the good of all mankind. Created in the hope to end the tyranny that had come into existence in their time, it was widely received and ratified by all living Sages as a good thing in the wake of the last great Story wars. So it went, that those books that were not found desirable were burned or destroyed, to protect all future generations.

Gailen, Alena and Targ find this peace is about to end. In a world where Sages can summon stories to life to do their bidding, these three apprentices must find where they belong, when the laws of the past seem to no longer exist.

The Fable of the Mad Queen by Jules Marks

“The Fable of the Mad Queen” is vividly entertaining saga set in the fictional country of Lothria in the late fourteen century. The principal character is Lucas Griffiths, a young knight from the neighboring nation of Kestar. In the course of reconnoitering during a tenuous truce, Lucas is captured by the Lothrians, and subsequently becomes a pawn in the exquisitely complicated politics of the Lothrian Court. Early on in his captivity, Lucas befriends Queen Elaine—the “Mad Queen” of the title—and her trusted friend and ally, Duncan Bothwell, the great wizard/scientist of the Lothrian court. Because of Lucas’ uncanny resemblance to a long deceased member of the royal family, Queen Elaine becomes convinced of the possibility that Lucas is one of her kin. Ordinarily such a supposition, especially from a woman that some believed to be “unhinged,” would be given no credence, but Lucas’ family history is murky, for he is an orphan with a mysterious past.

As the political/military maneuvering in Lothria becomes more convoluted, so, too does Lucas’ situation, and when a plot to have Lucas assassinated is discovered, Elaine and Duncan devise a ruse to spirit Lucas out of the fortress. Their well-meaning move serves to throw Lucas from the proverbial frying pan into the fire. A potential savior arrives in the form of Lord Alfred of Rowden, who contrives to cast Lucas from the political ‘chessboard’ by faking his death. But Peter Houghton, Lord Alfred’s principal subordinate—one whose loyalty is, on occasion, called into question—comes up with an escape plan that could just have lethal consequences. Lucas ultimately ends up in a coffin, and whether that coffin will be Lucas’ final resting place is a question that must be resolved.
