Divine Witness, by Ryan Seek
Ryan Seeks, highly rated, best selling young adult murder mystery is a pleasure to read and for a short time it's super discounted.

At first, Nick Morrison and Trevor Devane believe that solving a thirty-year-old mystery should be easy; even for two twelve-year-old boys.

Using Nick's psychic visions of the crime, they decide to piece together enough clues to identify the killer and capture the $10,000 reward. It soon becomes apparent that the boys are digging up bones that others would prefer remain buried. The harassment begins slowly with members of the local police force and quickly escalates into a serious threat to the young boys' investigation...and their lives!

Europa, by J.J. Co
It's finally happening: the world is running out of oil. As major nations jockey and feud for the last carbon resources on the planet, one oil company sets its sights on the vast energy reserves of Europa, one of the largest of Jupiter's moons.

Thought to have twice as much water as Earth, Europa offers humanity the best chance of finding microorganic life within the solar system—life that would prohibit harvesting the moon’s resources under international space laws. To confirm the presence or absence of life, Earth’s leaders plan a manned mission to Europa.

Jamie Caldicott, husband, father, and hero of a botched Mars mission, grudgingly accepts a position on the crew. His main concern is providing for his fa...

Twisted (Book One of the Deathwind Trilogy), by Holly Hook
Forget the beach. Forget the teacup ride at Disney World. Sixteen-year-old Allie's going on the vacation of her life: tornado chasing. It what she's always wanted. What can possibly go wrong with that?

Being chased down by the twister and waking up captive by a couple of weirdos, for starters. They put her through a strange ritual, and Allie comes back from her vacation changed.

Every time it storms, she turns into a tornado. Literally.

Allie has no choice but to leave home--if she stays, she'll hurt or even kill everyone she loves.

With her best friend, Tommy, (who might be more than a friend) Allie must return to the plains and find those who made her this way. But her quest ...

Raven's Choice (The Replacement Chronicles Book 1), by Harper Swan
What possible link could Mark Hayek, an introverted twenty-first century research scientist, have to Raven, a young woman who lived during the late Pleistocene? It has everything to do with an encounter between a band of Early Modern Humans and a group of Neanderthals intent on hunting bison.

As meticulously researched as Jean Auel's Earth Children series but with the benefit of recent discoveries, this novella is an updated story revealing how contact between Neanderthals and Early Humans had surprising results.

After an injured Neanderthal hunter is taken captive, Raven, as a healer, feels she has no option but to become his advocate. Her own survival soon becomes doubtful when the band's leader threatens to cast...
