“A riveting and intense debut…will keep fans of grim fantasy entirely enthralled.”

– Publishers Weekly



But now the Emperor himself is afflicted with the disease, and once it reaches his face, his dangerous secret will be exposed. As he pushes the great minds of his empire to find a cure, powerful forces align to expose him and grasp power from his ailing hands.


Williams’ powerful series continues in the next book, Knife Sworn, available now for NOOK.


This free app is part of the iLearnWith program for kids ages 3 to 6 designed to get your child ready for school while having fun! There’s nothing quite as rewarding as seeing your child enjoy learning and making progress on crucial early milestones. When I set up my preschooler with Ocean Adventures!, she immediately gravitated to the Octopus hidden object game, where she grouped various hidden objects based on their similar characteristics. She laughed every time she saw the octopus juggling the objects she discovered. She’s also had a blast with the other undersea adventures, refining skills like listening comprehension and sentence formation.


With today’s free app, and all of the iLearnWith program apps, your little ones will be prepared to meet the challenges of preschool and kindergarten head on.

Thanks for the extra freebie posts! I rarely find a Free Friday that I would like to read so it's nice to see a list of some others. I downloaded three today!

by Cheesehunter on ‎04-26-2013 08:36 AM

Thanks... really love all the freebies!!!

Interesting Free Friday selection! I wrote a fantasy short story for the undergraduate program in the University of Iowa's International Writer's Workshop which I titled "Beyond the Pale," which detailed a mysterious skin disease afflicting people which could lead to their eventual disintegration, but only certain people with specific vision could identify it in time. I'm very interested in seeing how Williams tackles his fantasy fiction that echoes a similar skin disease theme. Can't wait!


For those interested, you can read an interview with Williams I found here: http://tinyurl.com/79vloyn


Thanks Jeremy, Spec, butterly13, and ereader for all the freebies you offer us each week! If only I could download additional *time* to read all my new books in my Nook. :smileyhappy:
