Chomp Chomp - Werewolf Apocalypse, by Adam Moon. (Still $2.99?)
"A howling good read," praised for its crisp writing style and humor. Download today!
"There's something very likable about the rough charm of Jack Thomson's voice, and it's refreshing to read about an ordinary guy in extraordinary circumstances. He doesn't necessarily play by the rules, but neither is he adrift in the sea of morality. The story is engaging and sinks meat hooks into your brain from the first page, dragging you into a futuristic world that is not at all difficult to imagine. Jack Thomson speaks with Everyman's voice. It's chock full of blood and violence, with surprising moments of tenderness and near poetic insight." -- Amazon reviewer
242 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 8 reviews.
Yellow Star, by Jennifer Roy. (Still $1.99?)
Written in free verse, this children's book tells the true story of a young girl caught in the holocaust. This book is the perfect way to share this important story with your children.
"Grade 4–8—Jennifer Roy's partially fictionalized retelling (Marshall Cavendish, 2006) of her Aunt Syvia's life in 1939 Poland recounts the true experiences of a 4-year-old child who is forced into a well-guarded ghetto with nearly 300,000 Lodz Jews who lived in fear, poverty, and starvation. Many years after the end of WWII, Syvia Perlmutter was able to share with her niece the terrible story of the family's ordeal during the Holocaust. In free verse form, Roy writes from the perspective of a child from 1930 to 1945, bringing to life what it was like to live in the Jewish ghetto. Of all those incarcerated in Lodz, only 12 children and 800 adults survived the war." -- School Library Journal
242 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 172 reviews.
Cathedral of Dreams, by Terry Persun. (Still $0.99?)
An action-filled dystopian thrilller!
"In the tradition of other utopian/dystopian novels, Persun takes the reader on a wild ride from the limited but adequate existence inside Newcity to the outside world, and then back to Newcity. Keith's travels are informed by two illusions that won't let him alone, and by a gang of dissidents who wish to stop Newcity residents from escaping. There are some strange things going on, and Keith is still getting used to emotions that were illegal inside Newcity. There are a few twists and turns and enough action to keep the pace moving. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer
239 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 18 reviews.
Revision 7: DNA, by Terry Persun. (Still free?)
Time travel and some very human-like robots appear in this engaging Sci-Fi novel by Terry Persun.bm
"Terry Persun has taken a firm grasp of the Sci-Fi genre and created something new. This novel was fresh and inventive, and it was an engaging and fun read. Fenny was easily my favorite character, and for me the one with the most growth throughout the novel. No mean feat, especially for a robot." -- Amazon reviewer
266 pages, with a 4-star rating from 6 reviews.
Submerged, by Cheryl Kaye Tardif. (Still free?)
Cheryl Kaye Tardif is an award-winning, bestselling Canadian suspense author. This thriller has all 4 and 5-star reviews!
"From the first page, you know you are in the hands of a seasoned and expert storyteller who is going to keep you up at night turning the pages. Tardif knows her stuff. There's a reason she sells like wildfire--her words burn up the pages. A wonderful, scary, heart-pumping writer." --M.J. Rose, international bestselling author of Seduction

Slumber Party Wars, by Melanie Marks. (Still $0.99?)
Over 400 five-star reviews for this much-loved middle-grade short novel. 99 cents!
"This was a hilarious book. It's for girls 8 to 12 years old, but someone from my family bought it, so it was on our Kindle and it cracked me up. We used to do stuff like this at my friends' slumber parties and have fights with other girls just like that. It was funny, but still realistic and sweet." -- Amazon reviewer
74 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 573 reviews.
Between A Clutch and A Hard Place, by Gayle Trent. (Still $0.99?)
This humorous cozy mystery is 99 cents today!
"I really enjoyed "Between a Clutch and a Hard Place". Myrtle is a great character and the story is refreshing. Gayle Trent avoids being overly sweet and "cozy" - yet isn't "hard-boiled" either. The second book "When Good Bras go Bad" is just as fun to read. I look forward to more books about Myrtle!" -- Amazon reviewer
