The Spirit Clearing, by Mark Tufo. (Still free?)

From horror master Mark Tufo comes this deftly-written, haunting story that will stay with you. Free today!

"This was a haunting story of a young man's life following a horrific car crash. I can't really describe the story without giving too much away. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put my Nook down. The story is so deep and twisted that it reminds me of a Stephen King novel. The characters are complex and the story will remain with me for a very long time. Tufo is definately one to watch. Although I've enjoyed his other books, this one truly showcases his talent for spinning stories that are scary, sad and beautiful. How many writers can do that?" -- Amazon reviewer

After a horrific accident Mike wakes to find himself blind in one eye. He now sees things that others can't and nobody will listen to him.

That is until he meets Jandilyn Hollow. Will she be able to pull him out of the depths of his despair?

Can love transcend even death?

Brothers and Bones, by James Hankins. (Still 0.99?)

An impressive debut suspense thriller from James Hankins. 4+ rating after more than 300 reviews - and 99 cents today.

"A prosecutor and a homeless man team up against a murderous conspiracy in this rollicking thriller. The two settle into an entertaining dynamic as Hankins surrounds them with a crackerjack cast of bristling thugs, weaselly lowlifes and beady-eyed feds. He ties the story together with pitch-perfect dialogue, mordant humor and action scenes poised exquisitely between menace and chaos... A complex, entertaining thriller." -- Kirkus reviews

Charlie Beckham is a rising star among federal prosecutors until, on the morning of the most important court day of his career, a deranged homeless man turns Charlie's life upside with a single word. He calls Charlie by a secret nickname known by only one other person in the world--Charlie's brother Jake, who went missing thirteen years ago. Charlie has a hundred questions but the homeless man disappears before Charlie can ask a single one.

So begins Charlie's search for answers, and for his brother, a search that leads him down Boston's darkest streets, into its blackest alleys, and, finally, into its criminal underworld. But if Charlie wants answers he'll have to get them from some of the most feared and ruthless people in the city.

The Life and Prayers of Saint Patrick, by Wyatt North. (Still free?)

From Wyatt's popular 'Life and Prayers' series, this book provides an overview of the fascinating life of Saint Patrick. Free today.

"This easily read biography is filled with detailed information about St Patrick. Here are a great many facts and fantasies which are new to me. They provide much colour about his life, work, and legends. Not everything that can be said about St Patrick was included. I am thinking of the story behind his Breastplate, when he and his small party of travelers narrowly escaped an ambush, disguised as deer. Again, this is a perfectly enjoyable book. I loved reading it." -- Amazon reviewer

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Patrick is an essential for any Christian.

The Saint Patrick of his own writings and the early records of his life are not known to many. While Saint Patrick also represents shamrocks, Irish pride, and even the occasional green beer there is much of his life that is often forgotten. For instance, the original color associated with Saint Patrick's Day was blue, and although Saint Patrick dedicated his life to spreading Christianity in Ireland, he might not have celebrated the nation, as we do on his feast day today, in his own lifetime. Ireland, for Patrick, was in many ways bittersweet.

On the other hand, it was also the nation of his spiritual awakening, which is probably a large part of why Patrick decided to make the conversion of Ireland his calling. In the English-speaking world, few saints are as well known, yet so misunderstood, as Saint Patrick. The saint himself, as he was in life, sometimes gets lost in his holiday. The seekers who want to know the real Patrick have to dig much deeper, but they will also find Patrick a more complex and rewarding acquaintance.

All books in The Life and Prayers series come complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section.

70 pages, with a 5-star rating from 11 reviews.
