Some time ago I downloaded a free novella to my Kindle: The Reaper by Rachel Vincent. I had certainly heard of Ms. Vincent's Soul Screamers series, but as someone who doesn't generally lean toward paranormal stories, had not actually read any of them. The fact that this book was FREE was incentive enough for me to try it.
And was I glad I did! It's beautifully written, sharp, edgy, and a real page turner. So if you have a Kindle, follow that link and download it too. (As of this writing, it is still listed as FREE.) And I'll bet you'll do as I did: suddenly have to buy the rest of the books, as well!
And tell us, if you will, have FREE e-books enticed you towards books you might not normally have picked up, as well?
