Bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Aug 1)

Keeper of Reign (Reign Fantasy), by Emma Right. (Still 0.99?)

"Keeper of Reign is a book in the rich tradition of fantasy novels like Lord of the Rings. The novel has cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, which makes it impossible to stop reading. Young adult readers who are fans of Lord of the Rings should make this book an addition to their reading lists. Fans of the spiritual and allegorical elements of C.S. Lewis novels will also enjoy this book." -- Pacific Book Reviews

Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it?
For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema.
Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn't get himself killed first.

The 22nd Secret, by Randal Lanser. (Still 0.99?)

"This book would make a really good movie because it's one of those stories where you know that people know more than what is going on, but you don't know which version they know. Do they know the whole truth, the real truth or the truth that the government wants them to know? This story will keep you guessing at every twist and turn. It was a really great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it." -- Amazon reviewer

Pamela Koller, America’s leading nuclear computer scientist and top-secret undercover operative has to penetrate the heart of the Chinese ballistic nuclear arsenal. Using irresistible beauty and predatory sexual style she seduces her Chinese counterpart. Within a complicated plot of espionage and deception Pam convinces the Chinese she will help them disable the secret Star Wars programming embedded in the technology the Chinese stole from the United States.

The small plane delivering her to the Chinese crashes, leaving her snowbound in a remote part of Alaska. The romantic, passionate thirty-six hours she spends alone in a remote lodge with Jim Mitchell heats the arctic night and seals their everlasting love.

The Chinese want to use her, the Americans want her dead, but the small clandestine group she’s part of wants her in China to complete her mission, the 22nd Secret.

The Soul's Mark: HUNTED, by Ashley Stoyanoff. (Still 0.99?)

"This book focuses on the small town of Willowberg, where the residents not only know about vampires, the vamp leader is in control of the town. The community consists of human and vamps living as a whole, but something or someone is lurking in the shadows trying to disrupt their harmony. Neither human nor vamp is safe. As if this wasn't enough to disrupt their world, there is a strange new girl in town who looks just like Amelia, and she arrives just as people start to die.  The book was well written, the characters were strong and likable. The twist and turns will keep you reading, and the ending will leave you wanting more. If you want a fast paced and entertaining read I highly recommend this series." -- Amazon reviewer

Book 2 of The Soul's Mark Series


When Amelia Caldwell learned that she was marked by a vampire's soul, she did what any smart, self-preserving person would have done: tried to run. But thanks to the soulmate bond that tethered her mentally and emotionally to her vampire soulmate, Mitchell Lang, running was not an option and finding out she was a witch didn't make her life any easier.

Now, Amelia has made peace with her new supernatural life and accepted her destiny with Mitchell, one of the most powerful vampires in the world. They are finally getting along but Amelia is sure he is hiding something--something big.

Little does she know that this is just the calm before the storm. When Mitchell's former flame resurfaces and Eric's dreams become distorted visions of his soulmate, hostility and tension threatens to tear their world apart.

Just when Amelia thinks life couldn't get any crazier, vampires and humans start turning up dead. The killer--something more sinister and haunting than your run of the mill psychopath--is heading straight for their front door.

250 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 8 reviews.

Willowtree, by Mike Bove. (Still 1.99?)

"I so enjoyed reading Willowtree, the voice of the narrator, Bruce DelReno, is reminiscent of Archie in The Nero Wolf Mysteries, by Rex Stout. It feels like you are being told the story by a friend over a relaxing afternoon. Much was revealed about the main character by his dry humor and short to the point sentence structure. The golf references were not wasted on this non-participant either. Mike's easy way of writing allows a clear picture the Arizona landscape, the local diner, and characters. It is an enjoyable quick read, quick because you don't want to put it down!" -- Amazon reviewer

In this cozy mystery Bruce DelReno, retired mailman and avid golfer finds a body near the golf course. He attempts to link this to other murders, which he sees connected to the entanglements and secrets of a group of locoweed smoking locals. His friend, an Apache Indian, becomes involved and supplies much of the dry humor. Much of the story takes place at the golf course, a favorite restaurant, and a nearby ranch, in the fictitious town of Willowtree, AZ.

242 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 18 reviews.
