The Demon Stone, by Christopher Datta. (Still 0.99?)

"The Demon Stone is a wonderfully written supernatural thriller that explores the struggle between good and evil using richly developed characters that the reader follows from war-ravaged Africa to Northern Minnesota. Through these characters Datta explores how we deal with moral dilemmas and makes readers ponder how evil manifests itself in their own lives. Demon Stone is a spellbinding suspense novel that’s hard to put down – a must read!" -- Amazon reviewer

“Don’t read this one before you go to bed. And if you do, leave the lights on.”—Hill Rag Magazine

The Demon Stone is a powerful supernatural thriller that leads you from the killing fields of Africa to the quiet Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota. In braided narratives, Datta spins a terrifying story about the spiritual forces—both real and supernatural—that incite the basest, bloodiest and most frightening of human behaviors.

When Kevin volunteered to travel to a war-ravaged country in Africa to help out his childhood buddy, Bill, now a physician with Doctors Without Borders, he knew he might face danger. But he could not have envisioned the brief, nightmare encounter that would rob him of his friend, his principles, and quite possibly his sanity. When he returns to his family in the United States, he carries with him not only survivors’ guilt, but, according to a grizzled old juju man in the service of a warlord, a powerful demon. 


Liz cannot understand why, precisely, she agreed to go camping with her old college friend Kevin and his sullen teenage daughter, but it was clear that in the wake of his sudden divorce and a horrific family tragedy, Kevin needed someone to lean on. The canoeing trip in the Boundary Waters was supposed to be an escape, an opportunity to bring back the old Kevin. But once in the forests, Kevin’s behavior grows increasingly off-kilter, and Liz feels a growing sense of unease, one that ripens into fear. As the trio glide further into the wilderness, it becomes clear that someone, or something, is stalking them.

Masters of Time: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Time Travel Anthology, by Alesha Escobar. (Still 0.99?)

"In ‘Masters of Time’ the reader finds an interesting mixture of romantic love, filial love, teenage hormones, and the traditional science-fiction, mixed with a dose of manipulation, a pinch of mortality and the rewriting of time. ‘Masters of Time’ is a captivating collection of short stories, diverse in genre and tone. It is an agreeable read for a rainy day and the last page will drop you with a cliffhanger just as the sunshine chases the clouds away. You will start wondering: What if……." -- Amazon reviewer

Fate of Thorik (Altered Creatures Book 1), by Anthony Wedgeworth. (Still free?)

"Wedgeworth has created and developed unique characters that have depth and individual traits. Readers will find themselves thrilled or bitterly disappointed by the performance of those characters, and that's what moves the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and if you are a fan of this genre, you will too. I am presently enjoying book two of the series. " -- Amazon reviewer

The Dovenar Kingdom’s ancient walls still stand firm after 650 years against the attacks by the Altered Creatures. However, a civil war has left the kingdom without leadership. 

Now the provinces are struggling to fend for themselves against local dangers, while Ambrosius reaches out to all species in order to unify them against a much greater growing threat. Gathering leaders from across the lands into a hidden location for a secret Grand Council meeting to determine a course of action, the mighty Ambrosius is betrayed by one among them. Escaping just in time, he is severely injured as all of the other members in the council are killed.
 

As the lone survivor, he enlists a local hunter, Thorik Dain, to help find the traitor and prevent future attacks. Unfortunately, word has spread that it was Ambrosius who murdered the council for his own desires of power. Finding evidence that validate the rumors, it is up to Thorik to determine who to trust, who to follow, and who to stop from reaching the next point of destruction.
