Free and bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Jan 8)

A Call to Arms: Book One of the Chronicles of Arden, by Shiriluna Nott. (Still 0.99?)

"A fun romp through a new world, and a coming-of-age story that I think is going to become epic. The reader follows Gibben Nemesio, a poor farm boy from Willowdale, who is struggling to run the family farm and take care of two younger brothers at the ripe old age of thirteen. Technically, Gib is an adult in his world, but he is still in that strange, transitional time emotionally where he's trying to become the man. His older sister, Liza, made the controversial choice to to join the military and only gets leave when something truly dramatic is happening. So, when she shows up back on the farm without contacting them first, Gib's anxiety swings into high gear. Every one of Lott's characters is different in some way and has their own, unique voice. I think we're just starting to get to know the complexity of this world and I'm looking forward to the next installment." -- Amazon reviewer

Gibben Nemesio is in trouble.

His parents are dead, his sister is missing, and he's been left the sole provider for his two younger brothers. With a war brewing in the east and no guarantee of surviving another brutal winter, Gib's life is plagued by uncertainty. To make matters worse, he suddenly finds himself uprooted from his home and drafted into the army.

Forced to leave his siblings behind, Gib reports to Silver City, where he enrolls in the legendary Academy of Arden. An outsider and misfit, Gib struggles to blend in among the highborn city folk. His charming candor eventually wins him a handful of friends—an enigmatic mage trainee with a secret, a young girl who has defied tradition by joining the military, and a prince looking to escape his stifling, royal life. But his new-found comrades may not be able to help when Gib alone overhears a traitorous plot—a scheme so horrible that if seen to fruition, all of Arden will suffer for it. It's up to Gib to convince the High Council of Arden to act, to stop the terrible danger, before it's too late.

Rhuna - Keeper of Wisdom, by Barbara Underwood. (Still 3.25?)

"This is a wonderful journey as we watch Rhuna grow to adulthood, find love and find her calling in life. The novel is well written with detailed descriptions of the ancient cultures and their ways. One cannot help but want to learn more about the Atlans and their beliefs. There is plenty of mystery which keeps the reader absorbed in the pages right to the end. Who was Rhuna’s father? What will occur with the clash of cultures as different groups discover each other? What plans does the evil Dark Master have in store for the Atlan society? One of the sub plots is the ever present question as to whether the Atlans are helping or harming less fortunate cultures by sharing their advanced knowledge? There is also the ever present battle between good and evil. I would highly recommend this novel to other fantasy readers." -- Amazon reviewer

In the distant past, when a utopian civilization built the pyramids and other megalithic structures using magical powers, an innocent young girl named Rhuna learns the truth about her father and the sinister enemy that caused his demise. The idyllic community in which she flourishes and finds love is once again threatened by this old nemesis, and only Rhuna possesses the special inherited powers to stop him.

Closure: Jack Randall #1, by Randall Wood. (Still free?)

"A highly enjoyable story for anyone who enjoys FBI thrillers. The characters are all wonderfully developed throughout the book and not just through the authors short flashbacks, but through the way they interact with each other. The style of the writing, with quick changes from one character's point of view to another gives readers a true visualization of each scene and each perception. This was a really enjoyable read with a thesis many readers could get behind." -- Amazon reviewer

**** Security, book four of the Jack Randall series, is now available for pre-order. Look for its release on December 20th, 2014. ****

When a prominent lawyer is shot while waiting at a suburban stop sign it sets off a nation-wide manhunt for an elusive killer. Special Agent Jack Randall of the FBI finds himself appointed to track down and stop the shooter. Not by his superiors, but by the killer himself.

As more bodies fall the shooter takes his message to the press, earning the support of the public with his choice of targets and confounding the FBI at every turn. From the desert of Nevada to the urban jungle of New York City, Jack and his team follow the trail of bodies and haunting messages left behind by the killer. With the pressure to find him mounting on Jack, the assassin’s crimes grow bolder, and his message more sinister and closer to home.

It becomes clear to Jack that in order to find the shooter, he may have to look inside his own past, and become the man he was years ago.
