Bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday Oct 29)

ALTOR: The Shadow Rebellion (The Chronicles of Ageron), by L. J. deVet. (Still 0.99?)

"I would highly recommend Altor The Shadow Rebellion, I found it to be a very well written book the author has written it in such a way that it draws you in to the story. I found it very hard to put down. I would recommend it for any one who likes to read fantasy books and it is aimed at all ages. I can't wait to read the sequel." -- Amazon reviewer

What does a Sorcerer-Guardian do when his perfect world begins to crumble around him?

Ajay Samuels, a Sorcerer-Guardian, possesses the ultimate responsibility of protecting Ageron, Earth and the people who dwell within both lands. If that wasn't enough for this fifteen year old, he is also a member of the Altor; a group of seven, separate families, each a descendant of the original seven Guardians who were elected to govern and oversee all of Ageron.

As significant as these duties appear, there has never been any reason to protect anybody; Ageronian and Earthly alike. Nothing remotely interesting ever happens in Ageron. Even less happens on Earth. Ajay can't help but feel his supposed extraordinary power, apparently the greatest of their kind, is going to waste.

His world is turned upside down following the most unexpected of encounters with a nemesis he has had few dealings with before, and his perfect world begins to crumble in around him. Dedicating themselves to right what has gone so horribly wrong, and developing their new powers along the way, Ajay and his friends are thrust into a new world of the unknown; a world that brings with it potentially disastrous consequences.

ONE Sorcerer-Guardian. ONE premonition. ONE chance.

ALTOR: The Shadow Rebellion is the first novel in The Chronicles of Ageron; a series for children, teens and young adults.

4.4-star rating from 5 reviews.

Garland Roses, by Kathryn L.M. Reynolds. (Still 1.99?)

"I loved this book. I laughed so at the start of the book because you could so feel what she was going through, then I was on edge just waiting on what was going to happen next. I can't wait until the next book comes. One of the few book I will actually actually go back and re-read." -- Amazon reviewer

What would you do, if a menacing stalker was threatening your life? For Kathy Meadows this isn’t a philosophical question, but a fact of life. A psychotic madman who calls himself, The Doctor, is stalking her calling her at all hours, day and night. When famous rock star Joel Garland learns of the danger he steps in to protect her, and enlists his cousin, Nicholas Stone, to help capture the creep.
Disgruntled at having been roped into chaperoning her three teenaged nieces to a Garland Rose concert, Kathy Meadows is not happy to be there. The only positive aspect in having been so manipulated by her siblings, was the fact that here at the concert, she wasn’t being hounded by the parade of bachelors her matchmaking parents kept setting on her. Being the youngest and only unmarried daughter of ten kids, Kathy’s parents are determined to change her single status into a married one, much to her dismay.
Happily ruminating on having successfully ditched two of her more persistent Romeo wannabes, from escorting her to the concert, Kathy looks up and is startled to find a pair of interested male eyes trained on her person. At first, she thought he must have been looking at someone else, for it was hard for her to believe that a man as sexy and handsome as he was could possibly be interested in her, not without some kind of incentive from her parents. However, before she could find out who he was, and why he was gazing at her, the man disappeared into the crowd around them.
Kathy found herself wondering who the sexy. mystery man was, but not for long. All too soon, she discovers that her mysterious stranger is none other than the legendary and famous Joel Garland, Garland Roses’ leader and lead-singer. With a sinking heart, Kathy realizes he is way out of her league, and that once the concert is over, she’d never see him again. But fate is to prove this prediction wrong, for little did she know how important Joel Garland and his friends would soon become to her life and wellbeing, as an unknown menace, who calls himself “The Doctor” stalks and threatens her very life…
Joel and Kathy’s romance is the first story, in an eight-book series which follows the lives and loves of the famous Garland Roses rock stars and their family and friends.

The Eden Plague (Plague Wars), by David VanDyke. (Still 0.99?)

"Fast pacing and interesting theory. Well developed characters, a new scientific discovery vaguely along the lines of Jurassic Park and others of that type, with nanobot technology, carried along by excellent presentation of the usual black ops/military type action. Good character development which included the changes in mindsets triggered by exposure to the Plague. A definite twist at the end which leaves me wondering just where the author tends to go with the plotline, which could develop in an interesting way." -- Amazon reviewer

Nothing Personal (The Kincaids), by Rosalind James. (Still 3.99?)

"One of my favorites. Both the male and female characters (Alec and Rae) are extremely likable, and Alec is one of the most romantic male characters that James has written...I wish men were that romantic in real life, but alas it's only in our fantasies. In addition, the character have depth and their relationship is a very believable one, as James doesn't have them jumping into bed together on page 5. They get to know one another, and like many of her other books, this one also contains the 'slow burn'...which, in my opinion, makes the sex scenes all the better when they finally occur. There is also an interesting secondary story woven throughout the book, which will keep you on your toes and stop you from getting bored with all of the romance and love scene (insert sarcasm here - there has never been a boring moment in a Rosalind James book after all). As I said before, Nothing Personal has to be one of my favorites - intelligently written, packed with emotion." -- Amazon reviewer

When you wish upon a star . . .

Alec Kincaid has never met the obstacle he couldn't overcome--or the woman who could resist him. And it's not going to happen now, not with his star shining more brightly than ever in the high-stakes arena of San Francisco's software industry.

Desiree Harlin doesn't believe in fairy tales, and she doesn't waste time wishing. She's learned the hard way that dreams don't come true. And with her reputation and hard-won security on the line, succumbing to temptation isn't an option.

But things aren't always what they seem. And even stars sometimes fall.

Note: Despite the fog, San Francisco does get hot at times. If you prefer your romance without steam, you may want to visit a different city . . . er, book.

289 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 23 reviews.
