"Delver Magic" Trilogy - Jeff Inlo's series FREE in 8 different formats

Go here:

http://www.sitelane.com/ebooks/delvermagic1/index.htm


I was searching around and scratching myself at the same time , and came across this author, Jeff Inlo. I know nothing about him. I downloaded the first in this trilogy and the formatting looks decent enough.

It's available in lrf, lit, pdb, epub, mobi, prc, pdf, txt.

Here's a synopsis from his site:

A rolling tremor passes through the land of Uton signaling a return of long absent magic as well as an ancient evil that accompanies it. Ryson Acumen, purebred delver, senses the changes throughout the land. In his investigations, he learns that legends he considered fables hold more truth than fantasy. The delver encounters elves and learns the Sphere of Ingar, a talisman that captured all magical energies long ago, is free from its tomb in Sanctum Mountain. As violent, evil creatures return to shred the very fabric of reality, the sphere gains awareness and chooses to spew corrupted magical energies to obliterate all life.

The sphere must be destroyed, but it rests within Sanctum, a hollow mountain with a single path to its center. The way to the sphere remains defended by devices created long ago, forged by members of each race to thwart entry to the mountain's core. Those that wish to defeat the sphere must not only overcome these barriers, they must conquer the mistrust which has flourished during the long period of separation. Human, elf, dwarf, algor and delver must reunite to defeat the obstacles that now protect the sphere. Magic, though corrupt, is harnessed to fight off strange beasts of evil that once again walk this land. Once inside Sanctum, representatives of each race face the secrets of the ages that once undone will change their lives forever.


If you finish before I do (I have a backlog of things to read), please let us know if you liked it or not.

Jeff is a member here and is known as jinlo.

He wrote "Alien Cradle" which is also offered on that site (or just go here... http://www.sitelane.com/ebooks/aliencradlejinlo/)

Thanks for offering your work, jinlo.

Hey, seems interesting, thanks for the notice.

Just a quick notice, the series' name is Delver Magic, not Deliver Magic.
Dr Drib, maybe you could correct this.

Thank you Dr. Drib for listing the Delver Magic series.

Thank you dreams for adding the link to Alien Cradle.

And thank you Gaurnin for pointing out that it is "Delver Magic" as opposed to "Deliver Magic".

If anyone has difficulties with downloads or the formatting, please let me know and I'll see what I can do to correct any problems.

Jeff, I had a look at your site and didn't find a link to MobileRead in the "Free eBooks" section.
Maybe you could add a link to the site, as we have, just like Dr Drib says, more than 11'000 free and well-formatted eBooks available here.

I'd also like to signal you a typo on you site, on the "Free Ebooks" page, in the first line :

Gaurnim,

Thanks for telling me about the typo. That's fixed.

As for the link to MobileRead, I've been meaning to do that, but I've been trying to figure out the best way. I have a link to MobileRead.com under the "Information on eBooks and Readers" on the left column. I wanted to add a link in the main section for free eBooks. I was just never sure whether or not to send users to the MobileRead home page or directly to the eBook download area.

I have added the link today which brings users to the download area sorted by upload date. I'm still not sure if that's the best way, so if you have other suggestions, please let me know.

MOBI is better than PRC, so if your device supports it, get MOBI.
