Journey into the Deep (Water Wars Book 1), by Guy Stanton III. (Still free?)

"Very well developed sea adventure with characters that grow on you. The main character Eli improves himself as the story progresses. He goes on a treasure hunt, but discovers a better cause for his adventure. The book had a very good unexpected ending. I would highly recommend this book to everyone who likes a good Christian sea adventure. I will be looking for other books by this author." -- Amazon reviewer

"As it was in the days of Noah,
so it will be ..." - Matt 24:32

A Bible story ...
... a Greek myth ...
... and a treasure hunt!
 

Put it all together, and you have a recipe for fantasy explosion!

Eli Warner has only one objective when he finds the Orlanis Star—to use it as a guide to locate a once sunken ship and enrich himself with its treasures. But the Orlanis Star brings with it far more than he bargains for—an inscription that promises the discovery of the lost city, Atlantis, and the unraveling of its strange and diabolical mysteries. In a moment of decision, Eli and his crew agree that the wisest action is to cast the Star back into the sea where it belongs, and head back home.

But God has other plans for these treasure hunters ... to set the captives free!

Follow Eli and his crew on a journey of faith, destiny, and triumph from our modern world into the deep of the Earth.

History, Scripture, Myth, and Technology never looked so good together!

Far Horizons (The Emigrants Trilogy Book 1), by Kate Hewitt. (Still 0.99?)

"Far Horizons by Kate Hewitt is a romantic historic fictional book based on some true events and ancestors of the author. The author cleverly embellishes upon the stories to create a book that will keep you on edge from the beginning to the end. Can true love wait for two years and with an ocean between them? Kate Hewitt uses a great writing style to keep multiple plot lines moving forward, but yet keeps you in suspense the whole book." -- The Kindle Book Review

On the eve of his departure for the New World, Allan MacDougall asks his beloved Harriet to wait for his return, when he will be established and able to marry her. While Harriet gladly gives her promise, Allan's father insists he is acting dishonourably and so he must free Harriet to marry another while he continues to keep the faith himself.

Through years of hardship, heartache, tragedy, and betrayal, Allan and Harriet cling to the love that first brought them together--yet it is the treacherous doubts of their own hearts that could prove to be their undoing, and drive them farther apart than ever. From the Highland clearances of Scotland to the dangers of the untamed Canadian wilderness, Far Horizons will sweep you away on a grand and romantic adventure that is based on true events and letters, and celebrates the strength of a promise and the enduring and redeeming power of love.

Written by a USAToday bestselling and award-winning author, this book was previously published in hardcover and has been fully edited and revised. Find out more about Kate Hewitt's books at www.kate-hewitt.com.

The Neighbor (Short Story) (Kindle Single), by Dean Koontz. (Still 0.99?)

"This short story was actually scary in places and though it was very short, just ten chapters, I cared about the main characters and I look forward to learning more about them in "The City". Koontz has done it again. His character development is exceptional." -- Amazon reviewer

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Every city has its wonders and mysteries. For the Pomerantz family, the most disturbing mystery at the moment is the identity and the intentions of their new neighbor, in this eBook original short story—a prequel to The City, the gripping and moving new novel by Dean Koontz.


The year is 1967. Malcolm Pomerantz is twelve, geeky and socially awkward, while his seriously bright sister, Amalia, is spirited and beautiful. Each is the other’s best friend, united by a boundless interest in the world beyond their dysfunctional parents’ unhappy home. But even the troubled Pomerantz household will seem to be a haven compared to the house next door, after an enigmatic and very secretive new neighbor takes up residence in the darkest hours of the night.

"John Avery opens Three Days to Die with a bang and then sprints toward the finish line ... taking thriller lovers of any age on a heart-pounding, pulse-tingling ride, and he does it with style. Five Stars!" -- Jill Allen, Foreword Review

HE DIDN'T MEAN TO OVERHEAR ... but he did.

HE ONLY HEARD A FEW WORDS ... but he heard too much.

HE RAN ... but he was followed - a mistake that would turn thirteen-year-old Aaron Quinn's, and his beautiful, courageous, single mother, Ashley's, worlds upside down.

THE CLOCK STARTS TICKING ... when Aaron is stolen from his mother by a psychotic killer and thrust headlong into a dark underworld of armed robbery, prostitution, and death. Will Aaron lose his mind as he's forced to participate in a deadly crime spree and witness first-hand the horror of cold-blooded murder?

THE WALLS CLOSE IN ... on Ashley when she listens to a tape recording left on her pillow by the killer, giving her two choices:

1) Call the police and risk being responsible for her only child's death ...

2) Offer herself as a sacrifice in exchange for his life ...

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE HER?

From the opening sequence to the smashing ending, THREE DAYS to DIE moves at lightning speed, introducing the world to an exciting new hero, a beautiful and plucky heroine, and a truly frightening villain.

A crime thriller ... an action movie ... a love story: THREE DAYS to DIE takes you on a perilous journey unlike any other suspense/thriller you've read before.

The Laurentine Spy, by Emily Gee.

"Dark and compelling. Emily Gee is a storyteller to watch." --Nalini Singh, New York Times best-selling author

The Corhonase citadel is a place of virtue and debauchery--and deadly secrets. For the Laurentine spies embedded there, every day brings danger. Nothing is as it seems, whether in the ballrooms and salons of the nobles' court or the catacombs beneath the citadel. Saliel has many secrets; her spying is one, her past as a pickpocket in Laurent's slums is another, but her most deeply guarded secret is the magic she possesses. She walks a narrow path between discovery as a spy and being burned as a witch.

With a sadistic Spycatcher closing in, Saliel and her fellow spies are tested to the limits of their endurance. In the fight to stay alive they must trust each other...or die. Magic may be their only hope of survival.
