Today’s Free Fridays selection, Jane Carver of Waar by Nathan Long, is a (tongue-in-cheek) homage to Burroughs’s epic swashbuckling space tales. In this updated extraterrestrial adventure, Long replaces the macho John Carter with an equally fearless heroine, Jane Carver, a hard-ridin', hard-lovin' biker chick and ex-Airborne Ranger. When Jane finds herself alone on a distant planet inhabited by all types of inhospitable aliens, it’s time to put her Ranger training to good use, and find a way home…fast!

 

If you love an old-fashioned SciFi adventure, with some quirky, 21st century updates, you’ll have a lot of fun following Jane’s high-octane encounters. More action awaits in the series’ next book, Jane Carver Swords of Waar, available now for pre-order.

 


 

Free Fridays Recommends

Every Friday I check to see what the free selection is.  It isn't always something I want to read so I always check the Free Friday's Extras and usually find at least one book to download.  Thank you!

Thank you for the book suggestions. 
While not my normal style of book, I will take a chance on the feature book.  Looks interesting or at least a fun read outside of the fantasy books that I lean more toward when I read Sci-Fi.

 

And Spec,THANK YOU so much for you collection.  Especially the The Hour that Matters Most book by the Parrotts.  I had been looking at getting that book a while back.  I do a cooking class and have been looking for another resource about eating as a family to suppliment some of the other sources that I use.  This is great.

 

And I was also excited to check out the One Good Deed book by Erin McHugh.

Thanks again.  I would not have selected the Jane Carter had not the John Carter book been shared also by one of us.  I'll now read both.  This is a good community.  Have a great weekend.
