The Next Together by Lauren James is the 1st novel in her Next Together series of young adult historical science fiction novels with strong f/m romantic elements, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Walker Books.
This is the 1st novel in a duology told in a partially epistolary style, where two young persons are repeatedly reincarnated throughout history from the 17th to 21st centuries, with a mysterious mission to fulfill every time, falling in love only to be torn apart until their next encounter in their next lives, as they try to piece together what is happening in the future through records from the past. This is also the featured Free Book of the Week in the iTunes UK store, and is apparently a special promotion timed with the recent release of the 2nd novel which wraps up the duology.
Offered in most regions worldwide except Canada & the US, available at multiple retailers.
Free for a limited time, available in many regions worldwide (except Canada & the US, where these don’t have a publishing deal) @ Amazon UK, Kobo UK, iTunes UK (this was also free in Europe, Australia, and Japan when I checked by adjusting the country codes in the URLs)
A short story in this series, set in the 1940s during WWII and involving a mystery set at the Bletchley Park top-secret code-breaking compound is also free on a long-term introductory basis, Another Together, which you can find by clicking the tag for the author or the series name (sorry, but it’s a hassle to try to crosslink stuff by finding out whatever random URL Tumblr/Wordpress/Blogger has assigned and then editing it back into the respective posts.)
A powerful and epic debut novel about fate and the timelessness of first love. Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again. Each time their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated. How many times can you lose the person you love? For Matthew and Katherine it is again and again, over and over, century after century. But why do they keep coming back? How many times must they die to save the world? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace? Maybe the next together will be different…
