Step into a wondrously strange new world with this dazzling new standalone novel by Amanda Hocking, New York Times bestselling author of The Kanin Chronicles!

Mara has become used to the extraordinary. Roaming from place to place with Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Carnival, she longs for an ordinary life where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future.

She gets her chance when the struggling sideshow sets up camp in the small town of Caudry, and she meets a gorgeous local guy named Gabe. But before long, Mara realizes there’s a dark presence lurking in the town that’s threatening the lives of her friends. She has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she had in order to save everyone she cares about—and change the future forever.

In the pages of Freeks, Amanda Hocking once again proves her ability to create amazing characters and enchanting worlds that will capture your imagination and never let go.

Praise for Freeks

"Mara is strong, independent, and pragmatic...and her family of misfits is falling prey, one by one, to a beast that is stalking the campsite, bulding to a battle-driven reckoning. This standalone novel will keep readers hooked." --Publishers Weekly

"An interesting cast of quirky characters, a unique spin on a carnival freak show setting...and the variety of supernatural creatures will delight fans. This fun paranormal romance, wrapped up in a circus-tent setting, is recommended." --School Library Journal

“Amanda Hocking always has interesting, intense and beautiful storylines. This trilogy is a must-read for people looking for something a bit different. We have a beautiful heroine ... and trolls! Trylle fans will also love the crossover of their favorite characters and seeing them interact with Bryn. All in all, Bryn's story is engrossing and will keep readers clutching their books and e-readers.” —USA Today.com

“Hocking is a paranormal YA favorite, and her latest does not disappoint. Readers will feel transported by this beautifully written story. There's adventure, heart and thrills. Protagonist Bryn is filled with such power and determination, she will do whatever it takes to follow her dreams -- and her heart. Hocking's latest will have no trouble keeping the rapt attention of thrill-seekers and romantics alike.” —RT Bookreviews on The Kanin Chronicles

“Returning to the troll world of her Trylle trilogy, Hocking explores another tribe of trolls in this first book in the Kanin Chronicles. The novel's lingering questions and the author's knack for cliffhangers are reason enough to anticipate the next installment.” —Publisher's Weekly on The Kanin Chronicles

“With a thrilling climax and a haunting resolution, Frostfire brings us back to the world of the Trylle with a bang. Fans of Hocking's previous titles won't want to miss it. I can't wait to see where Bryn's story takes us next!” —The Teen Bookworm on Frostfire

“Drawn in from the first page, this was an exciting, action packed story with intriguing characters and an extremely enjoyable plot. If you're after a great read, be sure to pick this up.” —Head Stuck in a Book on The Kanin Chronicles
