Kindle Vella just launched its new episodic reading platform, so here are some great YA fantasy stories to sink your teeth into. You can read the first 3 episodes of any story for free, and you can claim 200 tokens instantly to continue reading the ones you like most!
Each episode is less than 5000 words (about 1 or 2 chapters) – but you’ll only use as many tokens as it takes to “unlock” a certain number of words (so don’t worry about counting longer episodes to get your money’s worth: just keep reading the stories you like and use up your tokens until you need to buy more. Some authors plan to release a certain number of weekly episodes, while others have already uploaded full books you can burn through now.
What is Kindle Vella?
If you enjoyed a story, you can “like” it, leave a review and follow the author – you can also “follow” a story to be notified when new episodes are available for you to binge. You’ll earn “crowns” by reading, which you can use to vote on your favorite stories. This will earn you the burning gratitude of the author and help more readers find the story (it’ll also ensure the author keeps committing their time and energy on writing the stories you like best.)
