I finished reading Acorna by Anne McCaffrey last week. It was an easy one to finish quickly because I didn’t want to put it down. It’s the story of a little alien girl orphaned in space an found by three bachelor miners. The book follows her growing up and eventually finding her calling on a planet where children are used as slave labor. The unicorn girl has some special gifts that make her unique among the humans. She looks at the world in a very different way from others which captures the hearts of her friends and the reader. I would recommend this for any fans of Anne as well as Sci-Fi/fantasy fans. It’s a space-age story but the unicorn girl brings some fantasy aspects so that it will appeal to fantasy readers too. The book is still just $0.99 on Amazon.com for Kindle but beware because you may just love it so much that you’ll want the rest of the series.
Speaking of books, there’s a group of independent authors that promote their work through free giveaways. The site is http://www.freeebookpartay.com and they have a promo that’s just today and tomorrow. I have downloaded a lot of books from these authors and read a few. I definitely recommend taking a look. The genres and titles vary from on event to the next. If you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll never miss a chance for some great free books.
Well, that must be all for now but stop by again sometime!
