As always, head here to see more about the bundle, and click on each book cover to see reviews, a preview and a personal note from our curator!
Sand of Bone by Blair MacGregor
"...tore through it, night and day. It's a fast-paced exciting desert adventure with magic, tragedy, betrayal, and a smidgeon of budding romance..."– The Book Adventures
The Winds of Khalakovo by Bradley P. Beaulieu
"If there is any justice in this world whatsoever, this book will be short-listed on next year's Hugo ballot."– Adventures Fantastic
The King's Sword by C.J. Brightley
"...this book kept me reading until my eyes would not focus."– Amazon Review
Pen Pal by Francesca Forrest
Forrest has done an amazing job creating two very small, fictional minority communities that come alive on the page … The settings feel rich in their imaginings, and the stories the characters tell themselves have an oral quality that transcends the reading experience.– Alana Joli Abbott, Black Gate review
Arrows of the Sun by Judith Tarr
"Holy Crap."– C.E. Murphy
The Worth of a Shell by M.C.A. Hogarth
"For those interested in gender and social issues, or those who bemoan the same-y nature of the fantasy rack at the bookstore, I recommend it highly."– Ambrosia Rose, Amazon Review
The Five Elements by Scott Marlowe
"Aaron in particular is a terrific character, both immature yet intelligent and enterprising, perfectly aligned with his age. I absolutely loved his ability to approach any problem in a logical, scientific way, and find a rational solution. This is so refreshing in fantasy, which all too often turns to magic at such moments."– Pauline M. Ross, Fantasy Review Barn
Lhind the Thief by Sherwood Smith
All of the elements that people love from Smith's other you adult fantasy stories are here—magic, relationships, adventure, humor, and a touch of heartbreak, and really, she is very good at bringing them into her books and leaving you wanting more.– Amazon Review

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
