Cannot open books bought for previous Kindle on new Voyage

Cannot open books bought for previous Kindle on new Voyage. 
Until recently I used an old style Kindle and downloaded my books using WispaSync (phone network.) Recently I bought a new Kindle Voyagr and decided to use WiFi for downloading books  so did not pay the extra for WispaSync this time. I updated my Amazon account to use my new Voyage as the default Kindle download device  and have successfully downloaded several new books onto it via WiFi. 
I am going on holiday shortly and now want to download a crime series I bought for the old Kindle onto my new Voyage. All the earlier books for the old Kindle are listed in my library on my new Voyage  but when I click on any of them to open it, it displays Queued and the title appears greyed out with a book icon symbol above it.
I don't want to transfer all my books onto my new Voyage,  just selected ones. Is the problem i have doing this due to the fact I no longer have WispaSync (which it previously used for downloads?) Or is there no automatic transfer and I will  have to log onto my Amazon account and transfer each book separately? Seems a bit of a retrograde step if I do
