It’s time two more free audiobooks from Sync. I’ve linked in the info from the ebook or audiobook version of each title (Amazon has the best reviews), followed by the link to get your copies free, with directions to ensure you get the complete download. You’ll need the Overdrive Console loaded (directions are on Sync’s website) and I suggest you use the desktop app to ensure you download a copy for backup purposes.
Start off with Everland: Everland #1 ($5.99 Kindle; $17.15 Audible), by Wendy Spinale, narrated by Fiona Hardingham and Steve West [Scholastic Audio]. I picked up the Kindle edition a couple of Christmas’ ago, when it was on sale.
London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders — the German army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer.
Unsure if the virus has spread past England’s borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return.
Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a daredevil boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?
The Just Men of Cordova (varies Kindle; $24.49 Audible), by Edgar Wallace, narrated by Bill Homewood [Naxos AudioBooks], is the second free selection for this week. As with most classics, there are many editions to choose from on Kindle; you can spend anything from nothing to a few dollars and probably get an edition that will work for reading along while listening.
In his Four Just Men series, Edgar Wallace comes up with something different: the ‘villains’ are not necessarily bad people, and the pursuers of justice, the Four Just Men, as they call themselves, are acting outside the law. They argue that their actions are for the public good, and dispassionately eke the ultimate revenge – death – on their victims. In their turn, the Four Just Men are pursued by the police, but somehow remain our heroes.
In The Just Men of Cordova, written in 1917, the Four move into the treacherous, aristocratic world of gambling, horse-racing and high finance. It seems that police services, even governments, have no power to control this world, where blackmail, poison and murder are commonplace. The Four, working outside the law, take it upon themselves to clean things up in their own way.
Click HERE to get the free downloads. For each book, click on the audiobook cover, enter your name and an email address, then click on the Get your FREE download now button; on some systems, you’ll be prompted to save an ODM file (others will run it automatically) and, if so, save it to your desktop, then click it after it downloads, to start Overdrive. Don’t stop until you see the Overdrive software open up (there is a link at Sync, if you don’t already have Overdrive installed).
Once in Overdrive, you’ll need to tell it where to save the files (just click OK to use the default location, since Overdrive will keep track of them for you), then again to actually start the download. By default, all parts of the book are downloaded; I would suggest not changing this in the last dialog box, just click on OK to get the download started. Make sure your audiobook is fully downloaded before the end of the week, as once the promo period is over, you won’t be able to get these for free (you can double click any title in Overdrive and will get a message that either it entirely downloaded or you’ll get a list of the “parts” and can download the ones that you don’t have).
You can’t get any titles that have been missed, but once they are loaded into Overdrive (which you will need to install, if you are not already using it for library books), they are yours to keep (there is no expiration date).
