Cyber Dawn (A Ben Raine Novel Book 1), by M.L. Adams. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Fun, smart, taut, perfectly paced. Easily one of my favorite reads all year, Cyber Dawn is a strong start to what could be the next great young adult series. M.L. Adams writes for today's sci-fi reader - someone smart, tech-savvy and, frankly, not just a dude. Adams clearly understands current technology and gives us a convincing look into what the near-future could look like. Adams also develops strong, smart female characters. Sure, Ben Raine, Cyber Dawn's protagonist, falls for every one of them, but you can't blame his love for brains and beauty." -- Amazon reviewer

Ben survived cancer. That was the easy part.

After losing his leg to cancer and spending six years as a prototype in a top-secret cybernetic research program, seventeen-year-old Ben Raine is ready for a normal life. Now a junior in high school, it seems as though normal is just what he's going to get. He's met new friends, made the varsity football team, and even scored a date with the school's head cheerleader. But just as life is starting to look up, Ben hears four words that will change everything --

You never had cancer.

Determined to find out why, Ben hires Sarah -- a classmate who moonlights as a hacker -- to help him hunt down the truth. But when they get too close, they soon find themselves on the run from the police, the FBI, and a team of ruthless assassins. Caught in the middle of a murderous conspiracy, Ben and Sarah tap into the one thing that may save them -- Ben's cybernetic brain. But will it give them the advantage they need? Or cost them both their lives?

Cyber Dawn is the first book in a new series featuring Ben Raine. Look for book #2 in 2015!

Note from the author:

CYBER DAWN is a story I've wanted to tell for a long time. Like Ben, I was diagnosed with cancer and had my right leg amputated when I was 11 years old. The nearly-sudden appearance of a golf-ball-sized tumor in my right knee always seemed suspicious. And while I have no evidence of foul play, that suspicion (and my love for science fiction) helped form the story behind CYBER DAWN.

Whether you're a teen or a grown-up, like myself, I hope you enjoy my debut young adult/new adult book. It will take you from the halls of high school to a top-secret corporate research lab and into the depths of cyberspace. With elements of computer hacking, cybernetic augmentation, corporate espionage, and even a bit of romance, it's a fast-paced adventure you won't soon forget.

Deliver Me (The Holmes Brothers Book 1), by Farrah Rochon. (Still free?)

"Witty, fun and interesting with multiple characters to relate to. The more sexual scenes were also tastefully written so I wasn't blushing every 10 pages. I give this book an A+ and I can't wait for the next one!" -- Amazon reviewer

So, when the sexy new ER doc asks for his help in planning this year's charity banquet, Eli devises the perfect scheme: He'll help put on the best banquet the hospital has ever seen, if Monica poses as his new girlfriend.

Duplicity's Child: A Mace Franklyn Mystery (Mace Franklyn Mysteries Book 1), by FJ Harmon. (Still 2.99?)

"A riveting, engrossing, and engaging mystery with much that is new and unexpected. Carries a good plot wrapped in extensive character studies. Mace Franklyn is on the surface a failed FBI profiler, failed husband, and struggling to establish a new business. But under the surface he is a man who is emotionally and physiologically vulnerable, battered from within and without, frequently tripped up by his own failing physiology. Witness also antagonist Roger Mandell, Narcissistic, totally self-centered, head of the Michigan Bureau of Investigation, a man who would rather an alleged serial killer continue to operate with impunity, while he harvests political capital from the situation. I highly recommend this novel to aficionados of crime fiction, police procedural, and character-driven suspense." -- Amazon reviewer


Murder is just the beginning

What compels a serial murderer to keep on killing? Or is it who?

Mace Franklyn needs to stop the serial killer, on the surface failed FBI profiler, failed husband, solving this case is key to establishing his new business. Underneath he is emotionally and physiologically scared, and frequently tripped up by his own failing physiology. Determined to identify the serial killer, he gets mired down in a battle for his professional life Roger Mandell, Narcissistic head of the Michigan Bureau of Investigation, who would rather the serial killer continue to operate with impunity, while he harvests political capital. The stakes escalate, and Mace cannot reconcile odd inconsistencies in the data and finds himself increasingly marginalized. With glimpses from the murky minds of the serial killer, and his handler, events quickly unfold, leaving the reader to determine which of these two are the most evil, and the disturbing truth behind Duplicity's Child.

Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers--Book 1), by Morgan Rice. (Still free?)

"This is the first Morgan Rice Book I have read and I must say I was completely under her spell as she wove her story. I love how this story plays out, with glimpses of other lives, that we just know will eventually impact Kyra somehow. Did I mention the Dragon? You must read this book!" -- Amazon reviewer

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS—Book 1).

Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is.

When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon—and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever.

15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

228 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 160 reviews.
