"Delaying death is one of my favourite hobbies."

 About yesterday's book, Sew, it's a quest. I just found out, it is free until the sixth! You can find it HERE.
 Also, the last short story came out yesterday but I forgot to link to it. It is free. It is HERE.
 And yes, as you can see, I changed my background again to give it a more Christmasy feel. *Grin*

 Today's book, rather books, were written by Aubrey Hansen HERE.
 I don't remember how I found Miss Hansen's website or her books, but I am glad I have. Two of her books had a free day on Kindle so I got them. One is titled Peter's Angel and is the first in a series and the other is Red Rain.

 Summery for Red Rain.
(And this book has a trailer!)

 Government regulations said they had no choice. 17-year-old Philadelphia must stay on Earth in the care of complete strangers while her father is sent against his will to Mars. When a benevolent official gives her the opportunity to accompany her father, Philadelphia knows she must keep her head down or be sent back to Earth. But when a search for her deceased brother’s Bible leads her into a hallway that isn’t supposed to exist, Philadelphia is faced with a question she doesn’t want to answer—the choice between returning to Earth or destroying it.

 Summery for Peter's Angel

 In the wake of a lost War for Independence, Peter Jameson, a young colonel, struggles to protect his tiny patriot state of Rhode Island from the oppression of New Britain, the wealthy British duchy. When New Britain invades and attempts to seize Rhode Island’s newly-discovered mine, Peter finds himself leading his small cavalry against the massive British army. But war becomes the least of his worries when his own men kidnap him and hold him for ransom. Facing certain death, Peter is freed by a mysterious boy who vanishes without leaving his name. Indebted, Peter determines to find his "angel" and reward him. But his rescuer has a secret of his own—he is the exiled rightful heir of New Britain, and he will do anything to keep from being found.

 When I first saw her books, what drew me to them were the covers. (And the title. If you haven't guessed, I like the name Peter.)
 The covers are wonderful and beautifully done.
 After reading the summery, I was even more interested in the books. (They are set in the Revolutionary War with a slight twist to them.)

 I have started Peter's Angel and have been enjoying it a great deal. Miss Hansen's style flows very well and draws the reader in right off. I know I will be waiting eagerly for her other books to come out. (As of right now, this is a book I would recommend. I plan on reviewing it once I have finished it.)

 You can learn more about the books and author HERE.

 Today is another Mark of Athena/ Leo quote.

 Also, don't forget! My giveaway is still going! And you only have a week or so to enter. (I refuse to count down, so you shall have to get the exact number of days for yourself) GIVEAWAY!




  1. I'm definitely entering this giveaway! ;) Have to get organized pretty quick. But it doesn't HAVE to be a new book, right??

  2. Red Rain also has a free audiobook that you can listen to on her site, and she's planning on releasing one for Peter's Angel as well. The girl who's reading Red Rain is the same one who's voice you hear in the trailer.

    Oh, and yes, Peter is a wonderful name. The younger brother of my Favorite character is named Peter, and he's pretty high up for my male characters. He gets some great lines, and the interplay between him and his sister is hilarious. (if I do say so myself ...)

    Oh, and yes, you do need to read The Frog Who Would Be Prince. From what I've read that you've written, it is a book you would love. Your NaNo actually reminded me of Frog, for various reasons.

  3. All of these news book to read.....who needs to sleep anyway, right?
    I emailed you my post for the blog party awhile ago, it must have not gone through, I sent it again this morning, hopefully it makes it this time!

  4. Thanks so much for mentioning my books! It makes my day to know you're reading--and enjoying--them. ^_^

  5. What eye-catchers! Somebody took great care and consideration creating the covers. Thanks for sharing the news, Jack.

  6. Ooh, both of those look intriguing! And I agree. The name Peter will never go out of style.
