Category Archives: Freedays Book

This category is a play on words, it’s called “Freedays book” because on Fridays I will publish a new article writing about a book which can be read for free.

The Internet is a nice tool which allows us to communicate. Some authors use this source as a way to share their books. And some do it for free, allowing us to download them on the internet.

I will talk about the books giving my honest opinion about them. Maybe you want to read a book and you don’t have the money to buy it? or maybe you prefer to read the book and in case you liked it you wouldn’t mind making a donation?

Are you ready for Freedays books? I hope you are :)

What is The Defender of Rebel Falls about

The Defender of Rebel Falls is the first volume of The William Whitehall Adventures written by the Canadian Erik Christensen’s. This is a science fiction series with a different and interesting approach. As the name of the saga suggests, this series is about the adventures of William Whitehall, a seventeen-year-old man. This boy is neither a knight nor a powerful wizard, actually, his job does not fit a hero at all. He is just a librarian. But since when our job defines our true power? William’s fate changes after meeting a nobleman who will entrust him an important mission: saving his kingdom.

As I mentioned earlier, this series has an interesting approach. before the story begins the author states that this adventure story is inspired by fantasy and medieval styles but in a scientific manner. This story has a different premise, dragons exists, but they don’t dwell in caves protecting treasures but, instead, they live in another world.

Laurie, the free short story by Stephen King

 

Feel like reading a short story? What if I told you can download this tale for free? Or, even better, what if that story was written by Stephen King? Sounds good, isn’t it?

Laurie is a short story written by one of the best horror novelist ever, Stephen King. However, Laurie is not a horror story, not at all, but instead, it is a charming and relaxing tale. This book by the prolific author of Maine develops a plot that talks about the loss of those we love, it is a story about hope and life in general. True to his style, Stephen King creates a story that traps us, making us turning pages like crazy, a story that will not leave you indifferent. After reading it we will feel that we have learned something, while we have traveled through one of those fantastic worlds that only Stephen King can create.

What is Laurie about

Dog and man

This story introduces Lloyd, a man who recently lost his wife. One day, her sister visits Lloyd to Florida and gives him an unexpected gift. He receives an adorable and touching dog, a mixed breed puppy half Border Collie half Mudi, named Laurie.  While Lloyd rejects his new pet at first, since he can’t even take care of himself due to his depression, Laurie will gradually get into Lloyd’s life to change it completely.

However, as comforting as Lloyd’s life is after his sister’s gift to him, everything changes unexpectedly when a certain event takes place in both their lives. The monotonous and peaceful life of peaceful meals and long walks on the beach is cut short by this new situation they did not expect.

This short tale takes place in the real world, it is a story about motivation, hope and moving forward after living tragic events. Despite being only 32 pages long, Stephen King is able to present a beautiful and heartwarming story. This author proves, once again, that he is more than one of the all-time greatest horror writers (as if that was not enough).

Where can I download this Stephen King’s book?

This story was inspired by Vixen, the dog of  Stephen King’s wife who passed away last year.   This explains the dedication at the end of the book. He posted this info on his Twitter account, on which he constantly proves he is a dog lover uploading fun pictures and comments of his dog Molly, aka the Thing of Evil, (see here).  You can download this story on his official website, here you have the link.

About the writer

Stephen King is, no doubt, one of the most recognized authors of horror, science fiction and fantasy of all time. This writer’s influence is not only limited to the field of literature, but the world of cinema has for many years been nourished by his stories to provide viewers with impressive films based on his novels. Some of the examples are It, Pet Sematary (just check this post for this upcoming movie) or The Shawshank Redemption, a cinema masterpiece based on his novel Rita Hayworth and the Redemption of Shawshank. His more than 350 million copies sold worldwide make him one of the most read authors of all time.

Eden: Part 1

Today is Friday or, better said, Freeday! in this category I recommend great books that you can download for free (and legally) on the Internet. Let´s begin with Eden: Part 1 (the Eden series)

Eden part one

Book cover

Eden: Part 1 is a free book we can download online, the first book of a two-part story (being the Eden: Part 2 the second one). The author, J.Sharpe, is from the Netherlands. His work is translated in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and even a few are also available in braille.

Sharpe is a Dutch author who has written several mystery thrillers and short works. He likes to mix genres in his works and this shows up in this first part of Eden. This book undoubtedly brings a lot to the thriller genre, but also provides interesting brushstrokes of the horror and paranormal genres. This cross-genre works really well, he created his own style but his writing, despite being quite particular and unique, reminds to Stephen King’s prose.

What is the book about?

The plot of this book revolves around the end of humanity and through its reading, we will be plunging into an exciting story that keeps the reader turning pages. The story sets the main character, Anna Meisner, in a dark room, tied to a chair. In front of her, there is another woman, who looks a lot like her.

The woman commits suicide while Anna is found a few days later in a state close to death. Anna wakes up in a hospital where the police consider her suspect of the woman’s death. This is the intense beginning of a story that will undoubtedly make us enjoy this exciting fiction thriller.

The book develops a very interesting plot, which brings us closer to discover the world of the angels. A world that in appearance anyone would consider is close to the divine if not the divine itself. A world in there are no mistakes, all pure and perfect. But nevertheless, as J. Sharpe will show us throughout the story that develops in the book, this is not the real appearance these divine creatures have, because in this story angels are not the perfect and pure creatures anyone would attribute to these beings sent by God.

Actually, this quote summarizes pretty well this:

“Angels: they’re among us. I would know. There’s one trapped inside of me. But the image you probably have of these “helpers of God” is wrong, I guarantee it. They are all maniacal assholes.”

The main character has a motivation to continue forward. To solve a lot of enigmas, due to the complicated scenario she has to face, as she is suspected of committing a crime.

Where can I find it?

This book can be found for free on the internet (here) as a way of encouraging the reader to read the entire series consisting of part one and part two (which can be bought on Amazon). As I previously said, the book is available on Amazon and you can download it to read it comfortably in any device (you can download the free Kindle app in their same website). This is a good way to know about this fantastic novel, and if you liked it you can purchase the second volume to keep reading. Depending on the Amazon country website you can either find it free or not, so if you liked the book or want to support his work you can actually buy this book instead of downloading it for free, or maybe you can buy Eden: Part 2, of your choice.

Awards

This thriller that places us in a world that is about to end as we know it, has been nominated for the Bastaard Fantasy Award, an important recognition that places the author in a prominent place. Of all the books we can download for free on the Internet today, this is undoubtedly a fantastic choice for all those lovers of intense stories, who are looking to keep their eyes on the pages of a thriller in some terrifying way.

 

Hope you will like this suggestion, this one is one of those free books to read and enjoy. Keep reading!
