The Arch of Avooblis (The Adventurers' Academy Book 1), by Charles Streams. (Still 0.99?)

"This book was easy to keep reading as the story flowed nicely. The characters were funny and the plot was both interesting and suspenseful. It made me want to go out and be a grouchy rogue myself!" -- Amazon reviewer

Can a rogue be a hero?

Dagdron was raised as a rogue, his dagger his only companion and pickpocketing his favorite pastime. But when his father forces him to attend the Adventurers’ Academy, where warriors, enchanters, and rogues learn how to fulfill quests to become heroes, Dagdron must face a whole new life. When Dagdron is accused of stealing the Arch of Avooblis, he and his ever-honorable roommate, Earl, embark on a quest to recover the magical crystal. Along the way they must deal with the mysterious Headmaster Gwauldron, a snobby princess-enchantress, and the fact that their involvement with the Arch of Avooblis may very well cost them their lives.

Blind Descent: Surviving Alone and Blind on Mount Everest, by Brian Dickinson. (Still free?)

"Gripping to the point of becoming almost unbelievable. A testimony to man's will to survive and God's Grace in allowing it." -- Amazon reviewer

Alone and blind at 29,000 feet!
Former Navy rescue swimmer Brian Dickinson was roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest—also known as “the death zone”—when his Sherpa became ill and had to turn back, leaving Brian with a difficult decision: should he continue to push for the summit, or head back down the mountain? After carefully weighing the options, Brian decided to continue toward the summit—alone. Four hours later, Brian solo summited the highest peak in the world. But the celebration was short-lived. After taking a few pictures, Brian radioed his team to let them know he had summited safely, and got ready to begin his descent. Suddenly, his vision became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds, he was rendered almost completely blind. All alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness, Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and his faith. In Blind Descent, Brian recounts—in fantastic detail—his extraordinary experience on Everest, demonstrating that no matter how dire our circumstances, there is no challenge too big for God.

IMPULSE: Companion to The PULSE Series, by Deborah Bladon. (Still 0.99?)

"So I couldn't have been more excited to read Impulse. I was not disappointed. I thought I loved Nathan before, but seeing him in this story, so devoted to Jessica, so loving and at peace with himself made me fall for him even more. Yes, there were bumps along the way, and definitely not ones I saw coming. But it was nice to see Nathan handle them in a way that showed how committed he was to Jessica, and how much he has grown. I have to give Deborah a lot of praise. I've loved all her characters, but I think Nathan will be sticking in my mind for a long time. I want to find a Nathan SO much!" -- Amazon reviewer

IMPULSE should be read after the complete PULSE series, which is available now.

From New York Times and USA Today Bestseller author, Deborah Bladon, the continuing story of Nathan and Jessica.
