Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

Vampire Takeover, by Jez Strider. (Still free?)

Young Preston Mitchell learns about love and survival as the world around him succumbs to vampires, in this coming-of-age thriller from Jez Strider. Free today.

"I enjoyed this book very much. It was a quick read; I finished it the same day I started it. The vampires are more like those in the movie 30 Days of Night rather than the ones in True Blood or Twilight. They're scary and they've taken over the human world. The survival mode of the charactrs is aken to that in shows like The Walking Dead. It's filled with adreneline, fear, and love. it's a high-impact story because everything is about survival, and the little things become way more important than they ever were. At its base, it's a love story that makes you remember what the important things in life are and makes you thankful for what we have." -- Amazon reviewer

The end of the world didn't come from a nuke bomb or natural disaster. Society's downfall came from ruthless and bloodthirsty vampires.

Survival became priority number one.

Preston Mitchell is fighting to survive after the loss of his family. He is coming of age in a world ruled by evil night creatures.

A chance encounter brings him to Darcy Rose and her family farm. She is also a teen living on her own. Because of her, Preston learns the true meaning of determination, love, and what it takes to be a man.

This true story recounts the experiences of two young Jewish boys as they struggle for survival in Nazi Germany - and find hope for their safety in brave and caring Germans. Well-researched, and beautifully told.

Framed in the historical time line from Hitler's rise to power to the end of the Nazi regime thirteen years later was a Jewish family, with two young sons, living in Berlin. With the clouds gathering, they realized they had no means to leave and therefore must ride out the storm. Their hopes faded as stricter restrictions were placed on them and the bullying and hatred of Jews intensified. Suddenly, Kristallnacht erupted and the numbers of killings and deportations surged. The family was repeatedly pushed deeper into the neglected ghettos, and the father was forced into slave labor. The Nazi SS was assigned the task of making Berlin the center of Hitler s growing evil empire Judenfrei (Jewish free). The mother and children had no choice but to flee the terror when it finally arrived at their door; it was already too late for the father. Running into the night, with no other options, the mother made a phone call to a woman who might be either a friend or an enemy. A plan was quickly hatched. "There is no good place to hide; you can only hide amongst your enemy and pray that your secret is not discovered." And what a train ride it was....

The Woman, by David Bishop. (Still 0.99?)

Top of the mystery charts this month! Day-trader Lisa Darby is attacked one night in a west coast small town - where someone is operating an "off the books" intelligence service, a police officer knows more than he should about the newcomers to the town, and professional hit men are turning up dead.

"I especially like a good conspiracy story. When you add murder, attempted murder, chase scenes and imaginative plotting that keeps me guessing I am happy. This one delivers all of that and includes a great road trip." -- Amazon reviewer

There are approximately one-hundred-and-sixty million women living in America. This is a story of just one woman. As the story unfolds Linda gradually learns that some people do deserve to die, but that she is not one of those people.
Linda Darby is a seven-year divorcee, living quietly in a small let-the-world-go-by beach town on the coast of Oregon, who day trades for a living. Her only close friend is a widowed elderly woman who manages a small consulting company, which, as is later discovered, never has visitors, sends and receives its business correspondence only by courier, and is not listed in any phone directory. No one in town knows what kind of consulting the company does, but the rumor is that whatever they do is done for the government.
Linda doesn’t date local men. When her celibacy grows intolerable, she visits nearby towns to frequent the watering holes of successful men. Her motto: No relationships. No second dates. No use of her real name during one-night stands.
Then one evening, Linda goes for a walk and nothing for her is ever the same. She is dragged into an alley by two men, but saved by a third, a stranger who disappears as suddenly as he appeared. The next day she finds out the two men in the alley had been killed, the town’s first murders ever. The following day she learns that hours before she had been dragged into the alley, her close friend was tortured and killed. The next night, she awakens several hours after going to bed to find a man sitting in her bedroom, watching her.
In the days that follow, events stretching all the way to the nation’s capital change who Linda is, what she thinks, and how she will live the rest of her life.

After: The Shock, by Scott Nicholson. (Still 0.99?)

Rachel Wheeler struggles for survival after a devastating solar storm has wreaked havoc to our world... and created a terrifying mutant form of humans. From thriller master Scott Nicholson... and 99 cents for a limited time!

"Scott Nicholson's take on the Zombie craze is entertaining and keeps me turning the pages despite my need for sleep. For one thing, we actually know what caused the Zapheads to come into existence. I came to care for the well-developed main characters very quickly and enjoyed the exploration of how living through something like that might affect their morals and test the foundations of who they thought they were. Great read, and so glad there is more to look forward to!" -- Amazon reviewer

"Nobody thrills like Nicholson does. Nobody." - J.A. Konrath, Origin

"Always surprises and always entertains." - Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

Other survivors are fleeing the city, but Zapheads aren't the only danger. Rogue bands of military soldiers want to impose their own order in the crumbling ruins of civilization. When Rachel discovers a 10-year-old boy, she vows to care for him even at the risk of her own life.

Seattle delivery-man Blake Sanders stops a woman from her suicide attempt... then finds himself framed for murder. Weaving threads through history and across the world, Michael Sherer will keep you on the edge of your seat in this bestselling thriller.
