Bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Oct 3)

Outview (The Inner Movement), by Brandt Legg. (Still 0.99?)

"An engrossing tale that pulls you in from the start with Nate having these visions of dying over and over again by every conceivable manner. Adding to this twist is the mysterious death of his father and the dysfunctional relationship with his mother. Then there is the brother who is committed to an institution. Nate does have friends in Kyle and his cousin, Linh. This is the foundation of the journey they are thrust into. I love the past lives/reincarnation, astral travels, and other topics that some would consider new age. Brandt Legg incorporates these points into the story to bring about an awareness and raises questions that are philosophical in nature, that almost reads as a parable at times in bestowing wisdom. Just like the writing of C. L. Lewis, there is something for everyone here. This is what a fantasy novel should be." -- Amazon reviewer

Night of the Candy Creepers (KiteReaders Monster Series), by Donna Davies. (Still 1.99?)

"My niece and nephew loved this book. It is delightfully fun to read and the pictures are not scary to children. My niece is quoted as saying " Donna is the Dr. Seuss of Halloween." I have to agree!" -- Amazon reviewer

It’s Halloween and you’re out for the night,
Not quite realizing you’re in for a fright.

Boy Made of Dawn (A Navajo Nation Mystery), by R. Allen Chappell. (Still 2.99?)

"The author knows how to grab your attention and draw you into the story line and keep you very interested in it to the very end. Absolutely enjoyed his description of the area and the people who are involved in the story." -- Amazon reviewer

Boy Made of Dawn - second in the Navajo Nation mystery series - stand alone sequel to the highly acclaimed Navajo Autumn. Follow Charlie Yazzi and Thomas Begay as stolen children and a sniper assassin bring danger and intrigue to the nation's largest reservation. Old and new characters emerge to unravel ongoing corruption. An irascible Ute family and their shrewd ranch-woman neighbor, become caught up in the plot to place certain tribal leaders above the law.

"Man has always felt most vulnerable in that lonely, netherworld between darkness and dawn. Often, it is then, death takes the sick and weak. They give up finally, unable to bear the weight of another day. A person may - not knowing why - suddenly awaken, if only for an instant, to assure himself all is well. Charlie woke that morning, in the darkness, with just such a feeling."

154 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 4 reviews.

The Boy who Lit up the Sky (The Two Moons of Rehnor), by J. Naomi Ay. (Still 0.99?)

"This is an amazing 5 star book. I liked the subtle development of the characters. In the beginning, I felt that the main character Senya was a genetic anomaly, and it appears that he is to a great extent. Even when he was a child, it was difficult to know whether to be repulsed by some of his behaviors. But his caretaker Meri was so devoted to him and him to her, that I became very interested. I am looking forward to an explanation of his extraordinary abilities in future books. The world he lives in is fascinating. The other characters generate compassion, evil, humor, curiosity, and such earnestness that you feel that you are a part of their world. It's much better than then the evening news! I can't wait to see what happens in the next books." -- Amazon reviewer

Lydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country's mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir. Duty comes before personal choice for a princess especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years. Lydia's pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession placing her yet unborn infant at the head of the both queues. No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.

Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out. At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow. She's not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father's chamber. The Father ends up in flames forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives.

Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but then tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him. It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila's son.

*** Note to readers- This title contains graphic language, sexual situations and some violence. It is not intended for children or young teens.

Promise Me, by Mona Ingram. (Still 0.99?)

"Ms Ingram created a wonderfully touching story of love with great characters and setting. The twists of the two love stories pull the reader through the story into a fulfilling ending. If you're looking for a great summer read, PROMISE ME will deliver."

"I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it's a very quick read, and has a good storyline. The characters are done fairly simplistically, but I think that's good, because trying to go much further in depth could have turned this into a book 3 times the length. This is a feel good story, but it's not afraid to call people bad and I think that's difficult to combine so I think the author did a good job."

"Thoroughly enjoyed this. First time for this author but I will definitely be reading more of her books. Nice romance, clean story, good plot."
