FREE eBook – Wildwood (Wildwood Chronicles) by Colin Meloy via iBooks & Crate&Barrel

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Crate&Barrel.Com has partnered with Apple iTunes and put up this great site for music, app and eBook freebies! I didn’t care much for the free music or apps (mostly cooking apps), but this eBook freebie did perk my interest!

Wildwood (Wildwood Chronicles) by Colin Meloy (Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins) is FREE to download (you’ll get a free promo code after you click on “get the download“). Note that it’s priced at $7.59 for the Kindle edition.

Book Description:

Prue McKeel’s life is ordinary. At least until her baby brother is abducted by a murder of crows. And then things get really weird.

You see, on every map of Portland, Oregon, there is a big splotch of green on the edge of the city labeled “I.W.” This stands for “Impassable Wilderness.” No one’s ever gone in—or at least returned to tell of it.

And this is where the crows take her brother.

So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval, a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much bigger as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness.

A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.

Wildwood is a spellbinding tale full of wonder, danger, and magic that juxtaposes the thrill of a secret world and modern city life. Original and fresh yet steeped in classic fantasy, this is a novel that could have only come from the imagination of Colin Meloy, celebrated for his inventive and fantastic storytelling as the lead singer of the Decemberists. With dozens of intricate and beautiful illustrations by award-winning artist Carson Ellis, Wildwood is truly a new classic for the twenty-first century.

Amsterdam (Single) by Imagine Dragons

Oh hey, the iTunes free Single of the Week is “Amsterdam,” by Imagine Dragons. So, click HERE to download the FREE track!

The track is off the band’s new album Night Visions (iTunes, Amazon) — Note: It’s just $5.00 for this week over on the Amazon MP3 store!

The huge alt-pop sound of this quartet (Imagine Dragons) blends arena-ready hooks and buzzing, hip-hop production. Get the band’s new album for just $7.99 and get the track, “Amsterdam,” as the iTunes free Single of the Week.

The band made their major label debut with the release of their Continued Silence EP, which included the breakthrough single “It’s Time,” an anthemic foot-stomping track that perfectly encapsulates the band’s unvarnished emotional sound. The song, which reached #3 at Modern Rock radio and #2 at AAA, earned the group a 2012 MTV VMA nomination for “Best Rock Video.”

MORE freebies! All currently free exclusively at iTunes iBooks


This is just free at iTunes so far

Heartshot: A Posadas County Mystery (Posadas County Mysteries) by Steven F. Havill

Heartshot: A Posadas County Mystery (Posadas County Mysteries)‘ by Steven F. Havill (Poisoned Pen Press) is available for FREE download on the iTunes iBooks site. It’s $0.99 over on US Kindle.

Book Description

Posadas County, New Mexico, has very few mean streets and no city-slick cop shop. But it has an earnest, elected Sheriff and an aging Undersheriff—William C. Gastner.

Pushing sixty, Bill has no other life than law enforcement—and doesn’t want one, even if he’s being gently nudged toward retirement. Then big time trouble strikes.

A car full of teens, evading a traffic stop, goes air*borne into a rocky outcrop, killing all five passengers and revealing a package of cocaine stashed under the seat. Has someone brought big-time crime to the county?

Then a second explosion of violence fells an undercover cop. Under pressure, the sheriff’s department pulls together to make a formidable team, but its weak spot may be Bill whose mind is too tough to crumble but whose long-mistreated body is gradually succumbing to stress. Ignoring all advice, he pilots the case to a final confrontation where the fate of the killer—and the cop—will be decided…
