They Who Fell, by Kevin Kneupper. (Still 0.99?)

"When I was young, going to the Catholic church, I thought that angels were real physical beings that could appear at any time, that heaven was just as much of a physical place as was my grandma's house. Over the course of my life, my views have changed a lot.... but what made They Who Fell so interesting is that he took that idea of the angels being real physical beings and ran with it and created an incredibly gripping story! This was an really unique story and really fun to read. The ending was absolutely epic and left you really wanting more. I will be on the look out for more from this author." -- Amazon reviewer

They say that long ago, there was a rebellion in Heaven. That an army of angels sought to seize the throne, and were cast down into the pits of Hell in punishment. Those are the affairs of angels, and everything would have been fine if they’d kept them to themselves. But there’s been another uprising, and another Fall. Cast down to Earth, the rebel angels ravaged the globe in an orgy of sin and violence as they indulged in their newfound freedoms. Their new home is the Perch, a black, towering monstrosity that blights what’s left of the New York City skyline.

Life inside the Perch means you watch your tongue, if you’re a servant. Jana has lived there since she was a child, and now she’s found herself thrust into the middle of angelic politics. Some of them want to torture her, just for the fun of it. Others say they want to protect her. And Rhamiel, a charismatic and powerful angel with one of the few faces that wasn’t burnt and scarred by the Fall, is relentlessly pursuing her affections.

Life outside can be just as dangerous. Strange things fell with the angels and wander the countrysides. The roads are filled with Vichies, cringing humans who’ve thrown their lot in with their oppressors and won’t hesitate to take advantage of the weak. But some are still fighting, including William Holt. He leads a small cell of fighters, searching for a way to strike back against the angels without getting themselves killed in the process. And all around, the fallen angels inflict their savageries on the dwindling remains of humanity, enjoying every vice they’d been forbidden during their long centuries of service.

They Who Fell is the first book in a trilogy.

Virtuous Hustlers (Jigsaw Trilogy - Book One), by D. N. Leo. (Still 1.99?)

"A must read! This is a brilliant novel; a hidden gem that I’m very happy to have found. The story follows that of Madeline, an investigative journalist, whose friend has been kidnapped and held for ransom. She is the best at what she does and tries to find a way to free her friend from the kidnappers, but she is totally unaware of the proverbial can of worms she is about to open. As she gets deeper into a secret world that has been hidden for so long, I found myself completely gripped and totally unable to put this book down. I will definitely be recommending this to everyone I know." -- Amazon reviewer

Madeline is an accomplished New York reporter. Ciaran LeBlanc is the head of a family owned London based pharmaceutical empire. They have nothing in common, that is until she is blackmailed and must unravel a mystery; a mystery that leads to a family secret that he must protect at all costs.

A twist of fate sparks their romance. Together, they embark on an adventure that challenges the boundaries between science and fiction; reality and surrealism; good and evil.

The adventure starts with the hunt for a 500 year-old artifact and ends with a futuristic technological warfare that spans across the multiverse. As a revolutionary thinker, Ciaran is used to combining science and fiction. With a romantic and loyal nature, Madeline is used to fiercely protecting those she loves. However, neither are prepared for the challenges ahead.

Every action they take to solve the mystery results in twists of fate that make them question everything they have ever known. Although their action is fueled by their courage, crossing the boundary of morality sends them on a journey that is set to change their lives forever.

Virtuous Hustlers is Book One of the Jigsaw Trilogy. A series of books set in the genres of contemporary, romance, mystery, science fiction and action adventure.

The Gray and Guilty Sea: An Oregon Coast Mystery (Garrison Gage Series Book 1), by Scott William Carter. (Still free?)

"Outstanding debut crime novel set on the Oregon coast and starring a misanthropic former detective ... as much a fascinating character study as it is an original story." -- Michael J. Totten, author of Resurrection

"Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That's how people describe Garrison Gage, and that's when they're being charitable.

After his wife's brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife's death is his fault. But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation - forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl's murder.

269 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 54 reviews.
