Word Ball: Today's Free App, Plus Book of the Day: The Fall of Ossard

Today's book of the day comes to us from Australian fantasy author Colin Taber. The first two books of his Ossard trilogy are available, and we're very pleased to be showing off the first one. Here's what I love about books like this. Sure, they're fantasy, but that's just the beginning. You've also got crime drama, suspense, and some mystery mixed in, with a female heroine. The book has something for everyone, and I recommend you take this opportunity to give it a look for only 99 cents!

Name: The Fall of Ossard (The Ossard Trilogy)
Rating: 4.1 stars over 18 reviews
Price: 0.99
Description: Ossard is falling...

Growing up in a city of Merchant Princes, Juvela discovers she can see what others can't. The very currents of the celestial are open to her, and that includes the truths they hide: An escalating series of unsolved kidnappings have been haunting the city-state, leaving its shadows pooled deep with innocent blood.

Has Juvela been cursed with the Witches' Kiss - or perhaps something worse?

Yet, more is to come, for not only has she witnessed an abduction, but she will have to endure a role in the victim's ritual death. For Juvela is about to become forsaken, and that's before she learns the real truth of not just the crimes plaguing Ossard's bloody streets, but the wider world: A world at war, and governed by gods whose highest pleasure is to sup on the taste of death.

Reviews: "'Absolutely rich, very dark, story-driven, could-not-put-it-down because I HAD TO KNOW what happened next....absolutely story-driven with an epic grandeur that I truly enjoyed. And the author did a magnificent job, if not with the original character design, but with the growth of the characters themselves, which a lot of authors fall flat with."
