Save $3 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"An enjoyable and even a captivating read! It's an appealing adventure that should provide a lot of fun for readers. Author Mark Henrickson's strengths are most apparent when it comes to those employing strategy: when two alien races battle one another in space and on the ground those scenes often hinge upon clever tactics and plans that have cosmic implications, and Henrickson is no slouch in these arenas. His characters display a flair for dramatic and inventive strategy that create a great sense of adventure and excitement. And it's not just one-sided, either: when the tables are turned and the characters we care deepest about are out-foxed, the author handles those moments very capably and vividly." -- Amazon reviewer

(Revised 2nd Edition)

Dr. Holmes was thoroughly bored with his psychiatric profession until he met Hastelloy. The man is named after a durable metal capable of surviving under high-stress service where more common materials fail; ironic considering he’s an insane asylum patient.

Hastelloy is convinced he’s locked in a battle for the survival of mankind with the mysterious species Alpha. This conflict supposedly began when Hastelloy and his alien crew crashed on Earth during the time of ancient Egypt. Dr. Holmes listens with understandable skepticism to the patient’s story about his involvement with building the Great Pyramid and Sphinx, bringing about the rise of Pharaohs, and even assisting Moses with the slave exodus to the Promised Land. Is Hastelloy crazy, or is it crazy to ignore him?

Meanwhile, a group of archeologists make new discoveries in the Giza plateau. While investigating previously unknown chambers found inside the Great Pyramid and Sphinx they come face to face with elements intent on preserving those secrets. Egypt’s recorded history, and Hastelloy’s true mental state, are drawn into question by what they find.

All the while a National Security Agent grapples with NASA amid the launch of a new deep space probe capable of broadcasting a message that will be heard by others. Is this threat a product of NSA paranoia or an attempt by alien influences on Earth to phone home? Both sides will stop at nothing to further their cause.

Mankind's past present and future are revealed in this gripping thriller that does not let go for a single page, and has enough twists and turns to test even the most sturdy safety harness. The Origins of all will be revealed.

Escape To Challenge (The Moondark Saga Book 1), by Don McQuinn. (Still free?)

"The writing has an almost literary feel to it, the female characters are not window-dressing, but well drawn and powerful, and the warrior hero shows a depth of humanity that underscores the underlying message that the tribe or family is all-important. The author does a good job of blending character development with action and has created a fascinating culture within the post-apocalyptic world. There was even a bit of romance to give depth to the characters and sweeten the plot. I will definitely be looking for his next book." -- Amazon reviewer

"Terrific, the kind of exciting, involving tale that keeps you up nights."
-Terry Brooks, New York Times Best Selling Author

Gan Moondark has always been a loner among his own people, preferring the company of his war dogs over his tribe. His father wants Gan to succeed him as War Chief for the Dog People, but his fellow tribesman thirst for battle and view him with mistrust. As tensions threaten to boil over into civil war, he must find out if he can live up to his father's expectations and become the great leader he's been prophesied to be.

All the while, deep in the heart of the Enemy Mountains, something both new and ancient is slowly awakening. A strange cave cradles a long-forgotten cryogenic crèche, and it's slowly coming back to life.

Escape To Challenge is the first book of The Warrior Trilogy and the first of nine books in The Moondark Saga, a complete series available on Kindle.

Set hundreds of years after a massive world war drove humanity to the brink of extinction, the Moondark Saga tells the story of people born into a dark age, where the surviving tribes of people share a culture deeply entrenched in war and violence. Set in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, the story explores a future landscape that was once the greater Seattle area. The Moondark Saga is an engaging journey set in a rich and detailed world, packed with dramatic battles and compelling characters.

Where I Need to Be (B&S Series Book 1), by Kimberly Knight. (Still free?)

"I really enjoyed this book. It was a really good and steamy love story. The story moved at a good pace. Brandon and Spencer didn't have that insta-love thing. I thought the pace that their relationship took was believable. Ms. Knight sure knows how to write a steamy scene." -- Amazon reviewer

Spencer Marshall was done moping. After catching her boyfriend cheating with his secretary, she decides to have a girl's weekend in Vegas with her best friend, Ryan. Lady Luck must be looking out for Spencer, because the hottie that has caught her eye at her new gym is on the same flight to Vegas.
 

Spencer is old-fashioned in the sense that she feels the guy should make the first move, but this hottie hasn’t approached her…until they have one hot dance in Vegas that leaves her questioning his motives.

Will her hottie finally speak to her, or will he continue playing a game of flirtation that may lead to nowhere? And will situations from their past keep them from taking the next step?

Despite what people say, not everything stays in Vegas, especially when you work out every day at the same time and at the same gym.

Sprouted Soul: Whole-Souled Poems, by Doobie Shemer. (Still free?)

"Sprouted Soul is a short book of rhyming poems speaking on human emotion and illustrated with beautiful pictures of the changing seasons. The poems have a spiritual feel, and deal with such emotions as love, forgiveness, finding bliss, your soul's journey, and renewal. "Soul," one of the poems which stood out to me, encapsulates the feelings of a lover who has lost her love, but who remains hopeful for a new dawn; "Pretense," another poem that stood out, is one of the darker in the collection and one of the ones I interpreted as being about giving up (the subject is fragile and bewildered, and has surrendered). I do wish some of the poems had been a bit longer, as they are very short snippets of verse, but poetry is a subjective and personal art form and the author does a good job of conveying feeling with his language." -- Amazon reviewer
