The Monmouth Summer, by Tim Vicary. (Still free?)

"This is a beautifully-written and well-researched work full of fascinating detail about life in 17th century England. In fact, if you want to learn history without trying, this is the way to do it. But you should read it for other reasons too. Mr Vicary knows how to write a good tale. His characters are utterly believable and the plot is exciting, drawing the reader in to an alternative world. This is what I believe fiction should do, and if it teaches you something about a very interesting period of history, then that is a bonus." -- Amazon reviewer

1685. King Charles II dies unexpectedly, and is succeeded by his brother James II, England's first Catholic monarch since Bloody Mary. English Protestants feel threatened, and King Charles’s illegitimate son, the handsome young duke of Monmouth, rises against his uncle in armed rebellion.

The rebellion turns young Ann Carter’s world upside down. Eighteen years old, she is betrothed to Tom Goodchild, a Protestant shoemaker; but secretly loves Robert Pole, an officer in King James’s army, who offers to take her to London as his mistress. Ann knows it is her duty to marry Tom, but does not love him; so when he marches away with the rebels, she imagines him being killed – which would set her free. But she knows such thoughts are wicked; her father is a rebel soldier too, like all the men of her village. So who should she pray for, when musket balls start to fly? What matters most – love or loyalty?

If God could see into my heart, she wonders, what would He tell me to do?

Her father, Adam, is a brave man tormented by fear. He has two fears: first, that he may be a coward, and run from the enemy; and second, that he is not one of God’s Elect, and will go to Hell when he dies. But like all the men of Colyton, ‘England’s most rebellious town’, he marches to war, risking his life for what he believes.

When England’s most notorious judge, Judge Jeffreys, is sent to punish the rebels, Ann and her father are faced with the hardest choices of all.

Children of a Broken Sky (The Redemption Chronicle Book 1), by Adam J Nicolai. (Still 0.99?)

Save $4 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Well-developed world and characters! Many fantasy books are slow to get going. Often you must rely on faith that there is payoff while you trod through the setup. "Children" is not one of those books. The tension starts early and drives you forward as you learn about these well developed characters. As the story progresses you alternate between "the present" and the characters childhood, seeing the experiences that drive them and bind them together. And despite all the swords and magic, in the end this is a book about people, learning to have faith in themselves and in each other." -- Amazon reviewer

The peasants called it "The Storm."

On a cold autumn morning seven years ago, the sky exploded with silent lightning. In its wake, everything changed.

Now the sun rises in the south, if it rises at all. Animals go mad. Crops ripen and die overnight. The Church - a body of miracle-workers who can heal the sick and walk through fire - warns that God's final judgment is at hand.

The world will soon end.

Now, stories tell of men that speak with beasts and peasants who work their own miracles. The Church decries these heretics, hunting them like animals and demanding the same of the faithful.

In a remote village, a small group of childhood friends are caught in the crossfire. Accused of heresy by the Church and sentenced to death, they escape their village as it burns behind them.

But some may find hope.

Their Church hunts them. A cursed world assails them. To survive, one of them will learn the true meaning of her beliefs; another, that some portents can be deceiving. But only one revelation has a chance to save them:

That they are not forsaken. They have each other.

Bestselling Kindle Suspense author Adam J. Nicolai invites you to a land beneath a broken sky, where sorceries clash with miracles, mountains are crowned with lightning, and faith - true faith - can topple empires.

Fresh Doubt (Ingrid Skyberg FBI Thrillers - Book 1), by Eva Hudson. (Still free?)

"I really enjoyed this book. It kept my interest from begin to end. It did not take a long time to identify with the characters, the plot was not obvious, and it was not long and drawn out, but the ending did feel a bit rushed. For some reason the final curtain caught me of guard. Other than that, I would read another of Eve Hudson's novels. Having said all that, I would and will recommend this book for others reading enjoyment. Good job!" -- Amazon reviewer
