Free Friday: Amberville

It’s Free Friday! Every Friday, Barnes and Noble offers a Nook Book for free. These are often a way for you to get acquainted with a ‘new to you’ author. But you have to act quick because they often are available for only a day or two before they go back to full price!

Today you can pick up ‘Amberville’ by Tim Davys. This one sounds unique; a fantasy crime thriller. You can see reader reviews at Goodreads, where the book rates 3.37 stars. Here is the synopsis from Goodreads.

What does it mean to be bad?

Eric Bear has it all: a successful career, a beautiful wife, a blissful home. He knows he's been lucky; a while back, his life revolved around drugs, gambling, a gang of stuffed-animal thugs, and notorious crime boss Nicholas Dove.

But the past isn't as far away as Eric had hoped. Rumors are swirling that Dove is on the Death List and that he wants Eric to save him. If Eric fails to act, his beloved wife, Emma Rabbit, will be torn apart, limb by limb.

With a nod to the best of noir and the wisest of allegories, and interlaced with greed and gangsters, Amberville depicts an alternate world that mirrors our own realities and moral concerns, and reminds us of the inextricable link between good and evil.

You can pickup your copy now, but hurry; it may not be free for long.

Be sure to check that it is still a freebie before adding it to your cart!
