e-book sale! $1.99 for Book of a Thousand Days or Enna Burning by Shannon Hale

Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
I love Shannon Hale's fairy tale style books. If you haven't read this one yet, $1.99 is a great price! Grab it here at Amazon!

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it

Synopsis from

When Dashti, a maid, and Lady Saren, her mistress, are shut in a tower for seven years for Saren’s refusal to marry a man she despises, the two prepare for a very long and dark imprisonment.

As food runs low and the days go from broiling hot to freezing cold, it is all Dashti can do to keep them fed and comfortable. But the arrival outside the tower of Saren’s two suitors—one welcome, and the other decidedly less so—brings both hope and great danger, and Dashti must make the desperate choices of a girl whose life is worth more than she knows.

With Shannon Hale’s lyrical language, this forgotten but classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm is reimagined and reset on the central Asian steppes; it is a completely unique retelling filled with adventure and romance, drama and disguise.

Enna Burning by Shannon Hale
 Enna Burning is the second in the Books of Bayern series by Shannon Hale and also on sale at Amazon for $1.99. I'd recommend reading The Goose Girl first (only $4.61 for e-book) to understand some of the backstory better.

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it

Synopsis from

Enna and Princess Isi became fast friends in The Goose Girl, but after Isi married Prince Geric, Enna returned to the forest. Enna's simple life changes forever when she learns to wield fire and burn anything at will. Enna is convinced that she can use her ability for good-to fight Tira, the kingdom threatening the Bayern borders-and goes on secret raids to set fire to the Tiran camps and villages. But as the power of the fire grows stronger, she is less able to control her need to burn. In her recklessness she is captured by the Tiran army and held captive by a handsome, manipulative young captain who drugs her to keep her under his influence. Can Isi and her old friends Finn and Razo rescue her without sacrificing themselves? And with the fire still consuming her, will Enna find a way to manage the gift that threatens to destroy her?
