Freebie Friday: Teen & Young Adult - Science Fiction & Fantasy (3)


Yet another week of Teen & Young Adult - Science Fiction & Fantasy! I am unsure how many weeks I will have of this and since I am typing them all up at the same time, some of them may no longer be Free when this is posted. Keep in mind if this is the case, please let me know (even though I normally check before the post goes live).

Author: Breeana Puttroff

Series: Dusk Gate Chronicles #1

Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an afterschool job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears.

The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books.

As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps disappearing to.

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.

Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.

Despite their guidance, things get even worse. Jeff's spine tingling encounters increase in number and intensity at an alarming rate, scaring him even more. Eventually, he makes the startling discovery that unresolved circumstances involving a bloody event directly out of Florida's distant past threatens his sanity and possibly his life.
