When planning this Fantasy feature with the rest of the BookPushers, we wanted to try and introduce Fantasy to readers who may not have tried the genre. And I thought what better way to introduce readers to a genre they may not have tried by giving away free books.
Today I want to giveaway two books: One Fantasy romance, and the other Fantasy.
The first book I have chosen is the book we did a group review on yesterday, Waprize. Warprize is the first in a trilogy of books of the Chronicles of the Warlands, where a healer and warrior lord fall in love — despite major difference in cultures.
Here is the blurb:
SHE MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN HER PEOPLE AND HER FREEDOM…
Xylara is the Daughter of the Warrior King, Xyron. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to the warring Firelanders.
Before she was old enough for a marriage-of-alliance, Xylara was trained as a healer. She can’t usurp her brother or negotiate a peace–but she can heal the brave ones injured in battle.

The other book I want to giveaway is a Fantasy Sc-fi. I’ve chosen this book because it was my first read by this author in my teens, and set off a love for the Pern world. For those who haven’t read the Pern series, the world is alight with dragons and deadly Threadfire. The White Dragon features young Jaxom, and his white dragon, Ruth.
Never had there been as close a bonding as the one that existed between the young Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary white dragon, Ruth. Pure white and incredibly agile, Ruth possessed remarkable qualities. Not only could he communicate with the iridescent, fluttering fire lizards, but he could fly. Back in time to any WHEN with unfailing accuracy. Nearly everyone else on Pern thought Ruth was a runt who would never amount to anything, but Jaxom knew his dragon was special. In secret they trained to fight against the burning threads from the Red Planet, to fly Back in time as well as Between, and finally their close and special union was to result in the most startling and breathtaking discovery of all…
