Ethereal (Celestra Series Book 1), by Addison Moore.

Looking for a Young Adult paranormal romance? Addison Moore's Ethereal has over 240 customer reviews, and a 4.1-star rating.

Some reviews cite concerns over spelling and grammar errors. Despite that, this Book 1 of the Celestra series was recently optioned for film by 20th Century Fox. Try it today!

"While I agree with some other reviewers that this story isn't going to be the next great YA novel series, I enjoyed reading this book. I'm glad the author wrote a YA paranormal story that was devoid of vampires and werewolves which seems to be the rage for most new paranormal stories. This was a fun and easy read, one that kept me up well into the night reading, and I'll gladly pay for the next installment in the series to find out what happens to these angels next!" -- K. Chambers, Amazon reviewer

Sixteen year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.

Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she's been looking for, but Logan's reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.

Skyla's bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.

Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead. At least she still has Logan... or does she?

This is Book 1 in the 8-book Celestra Series. 

225 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 241 reviews, and free today.

Lacuna: The Sands of Karathi, by David Adams.

For Sci-Fi fans, here's Book 2 of the Lacuna series, free today!

"It's a good read for anyone seeking a few hours of light, action-packed, intensely kinetic combat narration. Yes, Captain Liao does have some issues and so do some of her crew mates and while there is a little more depth in the way characters are depicted in this second installing, the parts that most readers are likely to enjoy the most are those where 'we', against all odds, kick evil alien arse and live to kick some more some other day." -- A. Dent, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer

Drawn to a desert world by the legacy of a traitor, the crew of the TFR Beijing discover something abandoned, something forgotten... something mysterious.

Buddha once said, "An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast...

... for a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind."

The scars of betrayal runs deep... and Captain Melissa Liao will find out just how far the slighted will go for revenge.

"This is very good commercial thriller writing. Easy to read and genuinely grabs the interest and doesn't let go. It has no pretensions to be 'literary' and cracks along at a great pace." ~ Feedback Forum
"Everything clicks! From the hook to the cliffhangers, this looks to be a highly competent 'airport' thriller. The pace positively gallops! A riveting, pulse-inducing roller-coaster ride..." ~ The Independent Review 

Discovery has its consequences.

June Rise and Tim Scott believe they've discovered a new cause for global warming. But when they travel to Mexico to confirm their theories, events take a demented turn - and fast. Tim vanishes, and soon June is on the run, framed for murder and the target of a deadly conspiracy. With her life on the line and catastrophic events looming, she is forced to take drastic measures in an attempt to reveal the discovery to the world. But will she succeed? Or will the discovery remain hidden forever - claiming June as a victim in the process?

From Seattle to Mexico, D.C. to Georgia, D.S. Land's debut thriller is a fast-paced, action-packed ride that challenges perceptions of global warming and explores the never-ending depths of greed.

Mystical Circles, by S.C. Skillman.

Here's a mystery centered around a woman's quest to remove her sister from a strange cult community in south-west England. Free today!

"This is an unusual read, one with an interesting cast of characters, and a string of unusual happenings. It moves along at a quick pace, and keeps you interested in what may occur next. This is not your usual thriller and yet it keeps you in suspense. It is more of a mystery of the workings of a disparate group of people. It deals with how relationships are formed and how the smallest of happenings can shatter lives.

Skillman is a deft hand at creating characters. If you are interested in people and their foibles, you will enjoy this book." -- Amazon reviewer
