I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Story), by C. Gockel. (Still free?)

"I enjoyed this story so much, I had to buy Part II when I saw it available. The story revolves around the Norse mythological characters of Loki, Thor, and Odin, as well as the author's own original characters. The author puts her own spin on the Norse gods and their background/relationships/characteristics, and it makes it refreshing reading compared to some stories I have read. I Bring the Fire Part I: Wolves is an exciting and fun read and I would definitely recommend it (as well as the sequel - Monsters: I Bring the Fire Part II)." -- Amazon reviewer

In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan — to get to her grandma’s house in time for dinner. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten...

In this tale that is equal parts “Another Fine Myth,” “American Gods,” and “Once Upon a Time,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, still very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her boobs, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

This first installment of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"This story will grab hold of you and not let go until you've read the very last page! Beautifully written with a high quality level of prose, you can't do better than a suspense by Joan Hall Hovey!" -- Amazon reviewer

Following the deaths of her husband, Corey, and ten year old daughter Ellie in a traffic accident, author Abby Miller sinks ever deeper into depression. She contemplates suicide as a way to be with them, and to end her unrelenting pain.

In a last desperate effort to find peace, she drives to Loon Lake where they last vacationed together, wanting to believe they will be waiting for her there. At least in spirit. Barring that, the pills Doctor Gregory gave her to help her sleep, are in her purse.

The cabin at Loon Lake was her and Corey’s secret hideaway, and not even Abby’s sister, Karen, to whom she is close, knows where it is. But someone else does. He is one of three men who have escaped from Pennington prison. They are dangerous predators who will stop at nothing to get what they want - and to keep from going back to prison. Having already committed the worst of crimes, they have nothing to lose.

Unknowingly, Abby is on a collision course with evil itself. And the decision of whether to live or die will soon be wrenched from her hands.

Catch me if you Dare (Jake Mathews Book 2), by Tobin Michael. (Still 1.99?)

"I have read both of Tobin Michael's books and enjoyed both of them very much. These books do not read like a new author, he knows the mind of a US Marshall and gets inside of the criminal brain at the same time. From beginning to end, it is action packed and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I want more Tobin Michael books and can't wait to see what Jake Mathews investigates next." -- Amazon reviewer

***This was truly an exceptional thriller; one that really stood out from other thrillers as a league of its own.*** by JenniferBoyce » 06 May 2014, GoodRead Review.

Trees Tall as Mountains (The Journey Mama Writings: Book 1), by Rachel Devenish Ford. (Still free?)

"Poignant! If you've wrestled with frustration over the repetitive messiness of motherhood, or been awed by the heart-clutching beauty of your children's faces, or longed to live life better than you seem to be able to, you will appreciate the bumpy, heart-touching journey this book takes. Rachel's deeply introspective life-stories speak honestly of the difficulty and pain, while also unfailingly pointing out the beauty and the joy. This book will leave you feeling more comfortable with the thoughts going through your own head as a mother, because Rachel lets you know she's been there too." -- Amazon reviewer

For eight years Rachel Devenish Ford has been writing about her not quite normal life at her blog, Journey Mama, telling stories about her days with characteristic honesty and humor. Now for the first time, this writing is captured in book format in the Journey Mama Writings Series.

In Trees Tall as Mountains, Rachel writes about her life of volunteering in an intentional community in the woods of Northern California with her Superstar Husband and three young children, cultivating joy and her faith in God despite a continuing fight with anxiety and very simple means. She is candid and hopeful, intimate and humorous. Because Rachel’s explorations of faith are not trite or churchy, her writing is beloved by believer and non-believer alike. Her bright, honest words make strangers into friends, and Rachel’s attempts to truly understand the love of God radiate hope to others who are searching for him in the sometimes dark, sometimes beautiful world.
