Free and bargain Kindle books! (Saturday Jan 19)

Here is today's selection of free and bargain Kindle books!

Alaskan Fire (Guardians of the First Realm), by Sara King. (Still free?)

Sixty five-star reviews for this paranormal romance - free today!

"With her debut novel, Sara King's engrossing, character-driven style and superlative ability to draw the reader into the world of her creation will keep you reading until the wee hours of the morning, then leave you anxiously awaiting her next book. The element of romance woven through the book gives the adventure a sensual, edgy tension that doesn't disappoint in the end." -- Stephen Buchanan, Amazon reviewer

Blaze MacKenzie is a freakishly-tall heiress who just discovered that her ‘parents’ actually found her abandoned as an infant in some bizarre human sacrifice in the woods. Along with that nasty little bit of information came a six hundred thousand dollar check, a strange golden feather, and the ability to move to the Alaska Bush and begin her dream-life living off the Grid.

Unfortunately for Blaze, life in rural Alaska isn’t as peaceful as she expected. Among her many startling discoveries is that her sexy new handyman, Jack Thornton, has already ‘claimed’ the territory that her new lodge is sitting on …

Further complicating matters, Jack makes it clear to Blaze that there are a good many things that go bump in the Alaskan night, and when a pack of werewolves goes rogue and starts killing or turning everyone along the Yentna River, Blaze and Jack find themselves in a fight for survival in this magic-soaked Land of the Midnight Sun.

About the Author:

Sara King was four years old when she wrote her first short story. And, while “Bob the Brontosaurus” and “Sammy the Snake” weren’t exactly enthralling reading material, she thankfully progressed to novels when she was 12. Seventeen years later, she is currently working on her 16th book, the third novel in the Guardians of the First Realm Alaskan Paranormal world. Sara lives in Alaska with her soul mate and greatest fan, David.

This highly-rated Sci-Fi fantasy is a fast read, and free today!

"You won't be disappointed with this book. Serious thrills, twists, turns, and best of all--the detail. The writer is so original, vivid, and meticulous with his description of a dystopian world and a totalitarian governmental regime that it becomes almost real to you as you're reading. From dark matter and ethereal creatures (like the zutterfly) to classic/historical literary characters, violet crystals, and magic books, The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter will take you on an adventure you won't soon forget." -- Amazon reviewer

Dear Coca-Cola, by Terry Ravenscroft. (Still free?)

Author Terry Ravenscroft is a successful scriptwriter, and puts his humorous bent to full use in this series of letters he's written to prominent companies, and their responses! Free today.

"I had already read and enjoyed Terry Ravenscroft's Dear Air 2000 so I was really looking forward to this. I was not disappointed. Magnificent. And Mr Ravenscroft has another eight books on Kindle that I have still to read. Can't wait." -- Lee Sylvester 

"Do not read this book whilst holding a cold drink, a hot partner or anything squeezable. The genius of this man's writing is a beautiful thing to read, dry, sharply observed and above all cheap as chips on kindle downloads." 


Putting pen to paper with hilarious results, in Dear Coca-Cola Terry Ravenscroft homes in on the Food & Drink industry. Household names such as Heinz, Ryvita, Tesco, Cadburys and of course the Coca-Cola Company are the targets for his entertaining epistles, resulting in a laugh-out-loud letters book with a difference. And you don’t want to know what he asks Jacob’s Biscuits for! But you will when you’ve read his letters to them.
You will never look at the contents of your fridge or kitchen cupboards in the same way again.

More review extracts -

Chocolady - What an excellent had me laughing out loud from the beginning. I challenge anyone to buy this book and keep on reading until the end before putting it down. I now have all the other books by Terry and each one is just as funny as the previous book.

Give your chuckle muscles a favour and treat them to a copy of Dear Coca-Cola.

Note. Much of this book was published in paperback under the title Dear Customer Services.

230 pages, with a 4-star rating from 61 reviews.

Hero's Curse (The Paladin Files), by Jack J. Lee. (Still free?)

"Great story! An intriguing blend of science, theology, mythology and adventure. Also, very good story telling. Lee keeps you thinking as well as entertained. " -- Amazon reviewer

I’ve got no choice but to warn you. Read further, the truth will be revealed and it will enslave you. You don’t want to know how the Universe works. I know I didn’t.

I don’t care who you are or what you believe—Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan, Atheist, anything and everything. You’re all wrong.

The following is a story of my life after I got drafted by God to fight the minions of darkness. Jehovah of the Holy Bible exists and holy warriors are needed to defend us.

If you’re wise, you’ll set this book down now and walk away. Keep your illusions; they won’t hurt you. Learn too much, open the door that is better left closed, and you’ll be fighting by my side.
