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)
Experience a breathtaking medieval fantasy series with elemental magical swords, perfect for teens and fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
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.
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!
