The Moon Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga), by David Estes. (Still 0.99?)

"Captivating! This dystopian novel is packed with action, romance, and adventure. One of my favourite aspects of this book is the dynamics between characters. In especially Adele's perspective, she has a strong decision on who she likes or not, and I believe that this is one of the things that makes her a very strong protagonist. I love Adele's loyalty to her family and friends, her strength, bravery, and even her definite opinions. Adele (and Tristan) take you on their ups and downs through the Tri-Realms, and it will leave you wanting more! Adele is a much stronger protagonist than Tristan, who does makes selfish and rash decisions. The two perspectives eventually intertwine, making for a story that will put you on the edge of your seat!" -- Amazon reviewer

In a desperate attempt to escape destruction decades earlier, humankind was forced underground, into the depths of the earth, creating a new society called the Tri-Realms.

After her parents and sister are abducted by the Enforcers, seventeen-year-old Adele, a member of the middle-class moon dwellers, is unjustly sentenced to life in prison for her parents' crimes of treason.

Against all odds, Adele must escape from the Pen and find her family, while being hunted by a deranged, killing machine named Rivet, who works for the President. She is helped by two other inmates, Tawni and Cole, each of whom have dark secrets that are better left undiscovered. Other than her friends, the only thing she has going for her is a wicked roundhouse kick and two fists that have been well-trained for combat by her father.

At the other end of the social spectrum is Tristan, the son of the President and a sun dweller. His mother is gone. He hates his father. Backed by only his servant and best friend, Roc, he leaves his lavish lifestyle in the Sun Realm, seeking to make something good out of his troubled life.

When a war breaks out within the Tri-Realms, Tristan is thrust into the middle of a conflict that seems to mysteriously follow Adele as she seeks to find her family and uncover her parents true past.

In their world, someone must die.

THE MISSINGS, by Peg Brantley. (Still 1.99?)

"Peg Brantley's THE MISSINGS is a superior thriller that details, among many other things, the unique vulnerability of America's undocumented population--in this case the vulnerability caused by their understandable reluctance to involve the police in their lives. When murder victims--eviscerated and then tossed aside like trash--begin to show up in a small Colorado town, police detective Chase Waters has to battle a closed community and the prejudice of some members of his own force to solve the killings, which--it turns out--are a byproduct of yet another ethical issue, one that we as a society will probably debate for yrars. Great pace, fine writing, solid characters, and fine construction. Brantley has the goods." -- Amazon reviewer

Aspen Falls, Colorado.
Secrets.
Secrets within a community.
Secrets within a family.

Detective Chase Waters finds himself working the most interesting case of his career—one that comes closer to home than he could ever imagine.

Are the mutilated bodies of young men and women the result of cult… or commerce?

"No sophomore slump here after Ms. Brantley's first successful outing—RED TIDE….Another 'unputdownable'." — Jack Quick, Reviewer

Revolt: The Secession of Mill Valley, by Ray Bourhis. (Still 5.99?)

"This book certainly addresses some serious issues we're currently experiencing with our government today. The author stresses that sometimes it's easy to turn a blind eye to what's happening in our country. The main character in this story, Sean Cogan becomes fed up with government corruption and decides to take a stand. This is where the book really begins to heat up. The author uses his characters and the story to convey a very alarming and real message about where our political system is headed. Not only is this book well written, it is entertaining and very honest. I was so wrapped up in the characters and the story that I found myself breezing through the book. 'Revolt: The Succession of Mill Valley' will leave you asking yourself some probing and disturbing questions about our government. It's a powerful and thought-provoking book that shouldn't be taken lightly." -- Amazon reviewer

How far are you willing to go to change a broken nation?

Author Ray Bourhis’ latest novel, Revolt: The Secession of Mill Valley, asks us all this question. He also asks an even more important question: Can we change a broken nation?

His protagonist, Sean Cogan, answers these questions by daring a small town to walk away from The United States of America in this fast-paced, well-balanced, ripped-from-the-headlines, and thought-provoking novel.

Sean Cogan, a charming, independent, political malcontent, is convinced that America has become irrevocably mired in big money, greed and power grabs, and is certain that now is the time to revolt against the destruction of this once great country. Like many across the country, Sean Cogan has simply had enough. A corrupt financial system, politicians bought-and-paid-for by major corporations, our laws inequitably applied against the “have nots,” and excessive taxes “stolen” from the people to pay for political pork are as un-American as you can get, and mocks the founding principles upon which this once great country was built. At least that’s how Cogan and his fellow Mill Valley residents see it. And Cogan plans to do something about it. Now.

Believing that no matter who is President, and regardless of political affiliation, we are no longer a country "of the people, by the people, for the people." He believes that we have become a nation held in a vice grip by powerful Wall Street interests and corrupt multi-national corporations. He thinks most people are too ambivalent, too distracted and too afraid to do anything about it. He thinks reform movements are a joke, that there is no hope in working within the system and that if something dramatic doesn't happen right now, the very concept of self-government will become obsolete. Unwilling to simply accept this, he decides to shake things up.

With the support of a few close friends of differing political persuasions, he registers an initiative for the town ballot in the small town of Mill Valley, California, to secede from the Union. Town Hall meetings, national debates and interference by powerful Washington operatives lead to Cogan's appearance on a National talk show moderated by a reporter involved in an underhanded scheme to bring the initiative to a crashing halt – and destroy his integrity in the process.

The resulting publicity turns the initiative into a man-bites-dog news story across the country. Sean is pursued by reporters, confronted by bloggers and commentators, and captures the eye – and despair – of the nation.

Only a visit to a gutsy CNN reporter, and collaboration by supporters, force shocking revelations to the surface, and the tide begins to turn.

Could this really happen? Yes. Should it happen? Readers will have to decide for themselves.

Revolt: The Secession of Mill Valley may just be the start of something big. Very big.

NEW ADULT ROMANTIC SUSPENSE FROM BESTSELLING AUTHOR ELLA JAMES...

Elizabeth DeVille doesn't belong at a party like this - one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.

Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail.

When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter's den of vices, she's a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn't have, and she's come up with a foolproof way to get it.

Follow Elizabeth - code-named Scarlett - to the lush Nevada brothel where she'll auction herself and risk the only thing that's not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil's mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.

**Mature Content Warning** Not recommended for readers under the age of 17 due to mature language, sexual content, and violence.
