Freebie Friday [1] NEW Feature!

I gather A LOT of free books for my Kindle, but I don't read very many of them. Why? Mainly because I tend to read mostly library books and the few books that I actually paid for. But I also avoid these freebies, because I'm not sure if they're any good! They typically only have a handful of ratings and even fewer reviews, so it's hard to judge their quality. I have read some; a few have been winners but there have also been some losers. That's how I got this idea for a new blog feature: Freebie Friday. This is when I'll feature one freebie that I read (and possibly reviewed) and say whether I think it's worth the read and maybe if it's even worth paying for.

So, what's the first freebie I'd like to tell you about...

Title: The Pearl Savage
Series: Savage, #1
Author: Tamara Rose Blodgett
Pages: 272
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian

Seventeen-year old princess, Clara Williamson, lives an old-fashioned existence in a biosphere of the future.

When her sadistic mother, Queen Ada, betroths her to an abusive prince of a neighboring sphere, Clara determines to escape Outside, where savages roam free.

Clara escapes tyranny only to discover the savages are not the only people who survived the cataclysmic events of one hundred forty years prior.

Once Outside, Clara finds herself trapped, unable to return to the abusive life of the sphere while facing certain danger Outside.

Can Clara find love and freedom with the peril that threatens to consume her?

My Rating: 4 of 5 [Review]
Current Price: $0.99 for Kindle [Purchase] {Also available in paperback}
Worth A Read: Definitely!

I really liked this one! It's fun, unique, and exciting, but you can read my review if you want to find out more about why I liked it. The short of it: this is one freebie that is definitely worth a read and worth paying the full price for. It's only $0.99, so if you like YA Sci-Fi I'd suggest this one! Plus the author is really nice and deserves the praise and support!

BONUS: The sequel, The Savage Blood, is FREE today! I also read, reviewed, and enjoyed this one! So make sure you grab it!
