The Nirvana Plague, by Gary Glass. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A thriller that makes you think! The Nirvana Plague is a mile-a-minute race to understand and contain an outbreak of...what? Is it a virus, bioterrorism, a movement, or the next stage of human evolution? Well-drawn characters will lead you on a wild chase in a thriller based on a great what-if premise. The book is written with authority, imagination and intelligence." -- Amazon reviewer

What if perfect peace and happiness were a contagious disease? In this fast-paced, thought-provoking thriller, a schizophrenic scientist, an ambitious Chicago psychiatrist, and a hard-driving Army colonel are at the center of a frantic international struggle between the powers of government and a mind-bending outbreak of cosmic consciousness.

A bizarre illness spreads through a Chicago psychiatric hospital. Dr Carl Marley, a bored but ambitious psychiatrist, seizes the chance to grab some attention by “discovering” the new disorder. But when an Army colonel summons him to a government-sponsored taskforce to investigate the syndrome, he learns the disease he thought he’d discovered is already so widespread in the military that it threatens to undermine the foundations of power. A high-stakes race to understand the disease takes the team from the NIH campus in Bethesda, to a war zone in the Kashmiri highlands, to a high-tech biodefense facility near Juneau, Alaska.

As the outbreak spreads around the globe and desperate governments impose increasingly severe measures to contain it, Marley begins to suspect that what is happening is not the apocalypse they fear — but something far more radical. Marley’s star patient, a brilliant but profoundly psychotic scientist named Roger Sturgeon, escapes from the facility into the city, and Marley attempts to bring him back before the government sends in troops. Only then does he learn the truth about what is happening.

Before it’s over they will all be forced to choose between the precarious comfort of the world they know and the mysterious wonder of a new reality — between their commonplace fears, ambitions, and loyalties, or the hope that lies in The Nirvana Plague.

Very Wicked Beginnings (Briarcrest Academy), by Ilsa Madden-Mills. (Still free?)

"Sweet little novella. This is a great introduction to book 2 in the Briarcrest Academy series, Very Wicked Things. It gives you a little taster of how Cuba and Dovey met and how their relationship began. In this prequel novella you see another side to Cuba, you get a glimpse into his home life which gives some insight into Cuba's ways. It is written in both his and Dovey's POV's and switches between the two from chapter to chapter with the majority being Cuba's POV. I fell in love with his character reading this novella and found myself really rooting for him. 5 epic stars from me for this super sweet novella, this series is fast becoming one of my favourites!" -- Amazon reviewer

Stonewiser: The Heart of the Stone, by Dora Machado. (Still 2.99?)

"Great story, great read! I really enjoyed this book and the author's take on stones carrying memories. The characters are well rounded, the protagonist is someone I would like to meet. I am anxiously waiting for the next installment." -- Amazon reviewer

Between truth and deception, between justice and abuse, a stonewiser stands alone with the stones... Or so begins the Stonewiser's oath. But what happens when a rebellious stonewiser discovers that lies have tainted the stone tales?

Like her fellow stonewisers, Sariah always expected to spend her life wising truth from the stones. But when she discovers lies in the sacred stones, she is forced into a pit of intrigue with only her stone pledge and her wits””along with her bitterest enemy””to protect her in a desperate quest to restore justice and prevent her world's destruction .

Reviews:
This touches on one of the strengths of the novel - that it is both plot driven - as well as an intimate portrait of a young woman's painful journey toward maturity….This is a page turner with heart and deserves to find a wide readership - www.sffmedia .com

"Stonewiser" is a finely crafted fantasy with unique concepts, and a vivid living world that will draw readers in and not let go. Midwest Book Review (Reviewer's Choice Selection)

Once in a while, a new fantasy/adventure comes out that doesn't travel well-worn paths in the genre but instead gives us a vivid new world, an exciting set of original characters, and page after page of non-stop intrigue, action, twists, revelation, and fun. STONEWISER is the best to appear in years. - Barnes & Noble review

Machado's writing is as competent as her characterization, being vivid and often poetic. The plot itself is well devised and generally moves along at a good pace… There are quite a few surprises… I was surprised to find that the novel was often a little darker than I expected, and there are one or two quite brutal moments that add a nice (dare I say it) gritty feel, without coming across too heavily. Machado's world also comes across well in her writing. -
