Wednesday Freebie

If you have the patience for a serialized story  (not everyone does - I have to admit I'm the sort of person who prefers to devour a book in the shortest possible time) you should check out Patrick Hester's fantasy novel Evermist.
Elias is born of a family with influence and money.  He loves his family, especially his mother and younger siblings, but his father is another story.  In his father’s eyes, Eli is a disappointment.

When he comes of age, Eli’s name is put into the Militia Lottery – a drafting process that has served the island nation of Paerleon for centuries, providing young people with jobs in service to their country and their Magistrate.  His father has the option, like so many of the upper class, to purchase his son's conscription outright, but he chooses not to do this, knowing that 80-90% of the Militia are sent to the isle of Evermist to serve their terms.  Few return.

Join Eli as he travels to the ancient and dangerous island known as ‘Evermist’, a place steeped in folklore, mystery and magics.  Eli must learn what he needs to survive if he ever wants to see his family again, and if he ever wants to leave this place that has been locked away from the rest of the world for all time…
Sorry, Patrick, I'll wait until it's all done and then read it all in one glorious chunk, OK? Because me and patience, we are not friends. Oh, no.

Books: Evermist, Patrick Hester

I am the same I can barely wait till the end of a book let alone a series. It sounds interesting though.

But are you open to devouring a part of a book in a very short time, if the part in itself is a complete morsel?

Jennifer said...

Yes, I am, actually. You're talking about when a part of a book can double as a short story? That's a fun way to get a sample of a book.

First off - thanks for the mention!

Second, sorry you aren't into the serialized nature of this particular beast. if it helps, I do post PDF's you can DL that contain chapters 1-10, 11-20, 21-30 - so on & etc.

Still - I appreciate the link :)

I am easily distracted by shiny things, Patrick, and your storyline is so interesting I don't want to get in the middle and then forget to come back!

I tend to devour books, too. The closer I get to the end, the harder the end pulls me, demanding me to keep reading. But I'll have to read that when it's finished. It sounds enchanting.
