Fifth week of Teen & Young Adult - Science Fiction & Fantasy freebies! I absolutely love how many freebies there are in this category that I want to share as many as I can. Which is why I venture a guess that there will be several weeks more of these ebooks available to my followers. I love you that much.

Title: Diary of a Teenage Superhero

Author: Darrell Pitt

Series: Teen Superheroes #1

A teenager wakes up in a seedy hotel room. He has no memory of his name or his past. A man lies dying on the floor next to him. Someone starts pounding at the door.

He runs. He is chased.

While staying one step ahead of his pursuers, he begins to assemble the pieces of his life. His name is Axel. He is the victim of an amazing experiment--he has been given the power to control air--and he is not alone.

An organization known only as The Agency has also modified other teenagers. Brodie is a master of the martial arts. Ebony can transmute one substance into another. Dan controls metals with his mind. Chad creates fire and ice from nothing.

They have been handed incredible powers to help the human race in times of crisis--and one of those times is now.

A terrorist organization known as Typhoid has acquired Pegasus--a highly advanced missile, invisible to radar and conventional defense systems. They intend to fire it at an American city. Only this bunch of untried, untested teenage superheroes stands any chance of stopping the missile before it strikes its target.

Diary of a Teenage Superhero is a high octane thriller showing what happens when conventional teenagers with everyday problems are given powers beyond this world.

They have to learn to work together, but as Axel draws closer to his newfound friends, he remembers the words of the dying man in the hotel room.

Trust no-one.

He knows he can't trust The Agency.

Can he even trust his newfound friends?

Title: Hallowed

Series: Waters Dark and Deep #1

The van Rossum siblings have lost their mother, but little do they know that all her secrets died with her.

Secrets about her magical origins. Secrets that could get them killed.

Brie van Rossum has always been the baby of the family, until she discovers that she is a Hallow, a descendant of humans and archangels. Oh, and that everything her mother has ever told her is a lie. Now, she has to protect her family and there is no room for error; if she makes a single mistake she could lose everything, including the people she loves. But the people who claim they can help her have their own motives, and she has no idea who to trust as she navigates her new reality.

Pilot van Rossum feels like his life is spinning out of control. His mother has passed away recently, his family is constantly hounded by the media, and he can't figure out how to control his younger sister. He turns to a beautiful stranger for solace and quickly becomes wrapped up in her world. But she has her own demons, demons that threaten to come between them unless Pilot can change her mind.

Title: Into the Shadows

Author: Karly Kirkpatrick

Series: Into the Shadows #1

Paivi Anderson has it all: friends, a spot on the varsity basketball team, wonderful parents, and quite possibly, her first boyfriend. It was everything a freshman in high school could ask for.

Her perfect life begins to crumble when she discovers her name on a list distributed by a power-hungry presidential candidate. How could anyone think of Paivi as an Enemy of the State? Could it be because of her special powers? No one was supposed to know about them, but the mysterious messages in her tater tots says otherwise.

In Into the Shadows, Paivi quickly learns who her friends are and is forced into a reality she didn't see coming.

Title: Waterfall

Author: Lisa T. Bergren

Series: River of Time #1

What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Beterrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaeologist parents. Stuck among the rubble of the medieval castles in rural Tuscany, on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds... until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

Suddenly Gabi's summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

Hope you all enjoy this Freebie Friday offers!
