Barnes and Noble's Readouts -- Nook Friday Freebie (also free for kindle)

Whom the Gods Love (Of Gods & Mortals) - M.M. Perry

Download free (at least today, likely at least this weekend) from Barnes and Noble or from Amazon.com .  Another not traditionally published offering.*

 

Book synopsis says:  "When Cass draws her blade, nothing can stop her. Except maybe a god.

 

Cass is eager to help when she is called. Gunnarr is eager to help Cass. When he suggests they go on a mission together, she's pleased the big man noticed her.

 

Unfortunately, the gods have taken notice as well, and that spells trouble for them both.

Tasked with a noble entreaty, Cass and Gunnarr set out with a group of friends on a harrowing adventure. It will take more than harpies, giant spiders and ogres to stop them from getting the job done, but the gods are far more dangerous than any of their creations. Certain death lurks at the end of this quest.

 

As Cass and Gunnarr close in on their goal, and to each other, it becomes clear a terrible choice must be made. Cass must decide what's more important to her, the love of a good man, or the life she's trying to save. Can she escape her fate?"

 

* By "not traditionally published," I'm not meaning that negatively or positively.  It's just that many of those often go free anyway where it's becoming disappointing how seldom now the nook freebies are "exclusive" freebies of traditionally published books -- "exclusive" at least until price matched on other sites. Takes away the excitement I used to have on Fridays just like the monthly Kindle Firsts are not as exciting since becoming all Amazon published arcs.
