Bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday Aug 27)

A Prescription for Delirium (Van Helsing Organization), by Noree Cosper. (Still 0.99?)

"I feel that Cosper has a vast understanding of the supernatural world, its history, and an imagination to alter it to her needs. That is a key strength of this novel. There are also a variety of horror elements in here from delusions to "real" horrific scenes battling demons. Cosper has established a series that will be on my to be read list for years to come. I'm intrigued to know where it will go from here. All I know is that there's danger in store. It's hiding around every corner for Gabriella and her companions." -- Amazon reviewer

"Cosper displayed a wealth of knowledge about the underworld and supernatural beings. She was believably able to develop a vast world of different hierarchies and complex creatures." -Lauren @ A Write to Review

Blurb:
Ninety years ago, Gabriella di Luca promised to protect the family of her dying lover. She failed to keep that promise. She was too far away to stop the devil that murdered the eldest Van Helsing son. Years later, Gabby learns the devil has resurfaced. She arrives in Hampton, TX, determined to stop the devil before it can lay a bloody hand on the remaining three brothers.

However, madness is spreading through Hampton. She suspects the devil is using this madness to test a drug which has a side effect of demonic possession. Gabby rushes to end the source of the madness only to fall victim to it. For a woman cursed with eternal life, dying is no threat. However, Gabby must stop the devil's plot or risk losing her most precious possession: her mind.

Stone and Silt, by Harvey Chute. (Still 4.99?)

"'Stone & Silt' reads a lot like a cozy mystery, and the author does a great job in dropping a few hints here and there which builds up for the end as you try to guess 'whodunit'. The author presents some great imagery of the Fraser Canyon during the Gold Rush years as Nikaia's family travels to and from Fort Yale to Lytton. We also learn a lot about the First Nations people (or 'Native Indians' as the author refers in the book) and their rich customs. 'Stone & Silt' is a story for all ages that also leaves behind a great message of the importance and value of family. This story was written from the author's heart, and it shows." -- Amazon reviewer

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

I recommend this book highly, and regard it as a great achievement of historical fiction." -- Tahir Shah, explorer, documentary filmmaker and author of 15 books.

Ruin, by Rachel Van Dyken. (Still 0.99?)



"Rachel has done it again with this book, she has taken a contemporary, coming of age story and weaved it in such a way that will have you pulled in from the first page and will not let go of your heart strings until the final sentence. I am looking forward to many more wonderful books from this talented author." -- Amazon reviewer

I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness...until Wes Michels offered to be my light.

I didn't know that time wasn't my ally -- that every second that ticked past was one step closer to the end of something that was beginning to mean the end of myself. He tried to warn me. He promised me all he was able to offer--each moment as it came--but it would never be enough.

Sometimes when you think it's the end, it's only the beginning. Wes thought he could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me. Because after one kiss, one touch, I couldn't--I wouldn't ever be the same.

And from that moment on, his heartbeat became my own.
