What Hides Within, by Jason Parent. (Still 0.99?)

"There is nothing better than a horror story that has you twitching long after you've finished. Definitely Recommended." -- A Thousand Lives

An award-winning horror/mystery loaded with dark comedy!

Inside all of us, there is darkness. Inside Clive, it's tangible, and it's aching to get out.

What Hides Within tells the story of a man held captive by an unknown evil. Clive Menard is a spineless slacker leading an ordinary existence. But when Chester enters his life, it becomes far from ordinary.

A disheveled Clive stands alone in a hospital waiting room. A series of incidences have led him to undergo unnecessary neurosurgery. A voice inside Clive's head nags him to kill the doctor.

Weeks prior, a murder investigation and an unrelated kayaking excursion set the story's interlocking events in motion. When a remorseful killer, a bomb-happy psychopath and a mysterious widow spider converge upon Clive, they bring with them destruction and death. Clive must discover who or what is steering his very existence before he, too, is consumed by the carnage around him.

With a driven detective following his every step and a vicious killer hiding within his circle of friends, Clive must walk a narrow and dangerous path, teetering between salvation and damnation. He must confront Chester and his own demons. But is he powerless to overcome them?

What Hides Within was an EPIC Finalist, was Runner-up for "Best Horror" in eFestival's Independent eBook Awards and has been named to Best of 2012 by A Thousand Lives book blog.

Savage Run 1, by E. Squires. (Still free?)

"I got really hooked with this story. Heidi 's complicated & perilous journey to become a Master is besieged with tortures, taunts, insults, harassment and death traps. I find lumps in my throat as the story progresses. I couldn't wait until I get to the next book - the book that will further make Heidi the ultimate heroine that we are waiting for!" -- Amazon reviewer

Seventeen-year-old Heidi Cruise has one chance at freedom, but it involves breaking the law and completing Savage Run, a life-threatening, male-only obstacle course program.

Nicholas Volkov has one goal: to make sure when he becomes president over the hierarchical society of Newland that he doesn't follow in his tyrannical father's footsteps.

After Heidi registers for Savage Run, Nicholas discovers that she's a girl. Being a rebel in his own right, Nicholas doesn't turn her in, but decides to help in any way possible.

Heidi struggles through the obstacle courses in Savage Run. Physically and emotionally drained, it is only during downtime between events that she's able to make sense of her world and get a little closer to the secretive Nicholas.

But with the threat of death constantly barreling down on her, and with menacing contestants looming around every obstacle, she realizes that the chances of her getting killed are far greater than winning her freedom.

In this action-packed, suspense-filled novel, E. J. Squires takes us through a wild ride that explores how far one would go to gain one’s freedom. With narrow escapes, heart-aching losses, and an unexpected romance, you are in for a read you won’t be able to put down.

Savage Run 1: Phase 1
Savage Run 2: Phase 2
Savage Run 3: Phase 3 and the conclusion of Savage Run

*THIS IS BOOK 1 IN THE SAVAGE RUN NOVELLA SERIES, AND IS NOT MEANT TO BE READ AS A STAND ALONE.

242 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 92 reviews.
