Stiger's Tigers (Chronicles of An Imperial Legionary Officer Book 1), by Marc Alan Edelheit. (Still 0.99?)

"Well-written fantasy/military book about a veteran Roman legionnaire training raw recruits in hopes of completing a mission to resupply a distant outpost. Gripping story line and characters that are both realistic and likable make this book a winner. I'm certainly game for more, so when comes Book 2?" -- Amazon Reviewer

The empire has endured many centuries but is now threatened by multiple wars and a major rebellion in the South.

A nobleman from an infamous family, imperial legionary officer, fighter and a right proper bastard of a man… Captain Ben Stiger finds himself reassigned from a crack legion to the rebellion simmering in the South. Placed in command of a truly terrible company, the 85th Imperial Foot, he is unknowingly sent on a suicide mission to resupply an isolated outpost, the garrison of Vrell. Along the way he must rebuild his new company, gain the respect of the men he leads, survive an assassination attempt, fight bandits, rebels, and an agent of an evil god. His companions on this journey of discovery and adventure are one of the few remaining elven rangers and a paladin on a quest for the High Father.

The battle to save the empire and the world begins here in the first book of this exciting new series!

Baksheesh (Bribes) (Spies Lie Book 5), by DS Kane. (Still free?)

"I wanted to read a thriller novel about mystery and international spies; the plot is intriguing. Cassie is a smart covert agent who knows how to deal with danger. I liked the balance of steady rising tension and gradual story development. DS Kane did a great job writing this; it reads like a thriller in third person narrative. The characters and dialogue are believable; each chapter left me feeling like I found more secretive information. If you're looking for an entertaining international spy novel, this one is engaging. It's book 5 in the series, but the first book that I read in the series. I had an easy time picking right up with Cassie and her covert life. I look forward to reading more books written by DS Kane." -- Amazon Reviewer

A covert operative is ready for a new life outside of international espionage. But her enemies are far from willing to let her go…

She spied for her country, blackmailed her president, and ran from more threats than she can remember. But when the love of her life proposes, covert agent Cassandra Sashakovich is finally ready to settle down. Unfortunately her past is not quite ready to let her walk away.

Old enemies—including a vengeful president—want her dead, and they’re willing to attack her loved ones, including her adopted teenage daughter, if that’s what it takes.

But Cassandra has other pressing problems—a world leader is assassinated and an arm dealer’s revenge threatens to lead to nuclear war. Now Cassandra and her security firm, Swiftshadow must defuse the threats and find a way to outmaneuver those who threaten not only her family, but her country as well.

Vibrations: Harmonic Magic Book 1, by P.E. Padilla. (Still 0.99?)

"Most fascinating fantasy/science fiction novel that I have read in a while. Once I started, there was no way for me to put it down. Anxiously awaiting the second." -- Amazon Reviewer

Sam Sharp has never been what people would call sociable. Affected profoundly by his father’s death when Sam was very young, he developed into a solitary and self-sufficient person. When he finds himself transported to Gythe, a world that is completely different from his home, yet strangely familiar, he is forced to seek help. Sam’s nature wars with his need to rely on the strangers he meets—a warrior, a scholar, a monk, and a telepathic creature—to help him find a way back to his own world.

When Sam finds that he has an affinity for the peculiar vibrational energy that exists in Gythe, he realizes it is his only chance for going home. But there is only one person who may have the knowledge to help him: the Gray Man, a tyrannical vibrational energy master with plans to rule the world. Can Sam trust others to aid him and to prepare him for the ultimate confrontation with the Gray Man, to learn the secrets of this mysterious adversary? If so, will he even be capable of using the vibrational energy himself to return home, or will he die in this strange new world?

Seeking Sorrow (Guardians of Terath Book 1), by ZEN DIPIETRO. (Still 0.99?)

"Not only is the plot intriguing and original, but it is full of luscious, captivating detail in regards to world building, emotional conveyance, inner conflict and dialogue. I learned a thing or two from the author about fundamental writing techniques that I truly appreciated and needed.This isn't a romance novel, but there is romance present, something I enjoyed immensely, and the romance was very tasteful. I could easily give this to my teenager and feel fine about it. On the whole DiPietro has weaved an intriguing mystery where first impressions are not always what they seem, and bonds of loyalty and friendship are tested to their limits. It is enjoyable to discover just how each of these fully developed characters handle every challenge that besets them. I highly recommend this to...well...pretty much everyone. I can't imagine anyone not liking this well written fantasy adventure." -- Amazon Reviewer

An earth-like world of high-tech humans faces the reality that their world is not as safe as they thought it was. Five people are thrown together to quietly get to the bottom of an unfathomable event that must stay quiet. If the population of Terath becomes aware of the truth, it will spark a civil war. That war would pit the majority of the population against the powerful minority with the ability to harness and manipulate mana. The resulting cataclysm would decimate the population and tear apart the foundation of society.

The five people chosen for this must reconsider everything they thought they knew about mana, even as they learn to trust one another’s abilities. They must embrace everything they never wanted in order to prevent the devastation of their world. One of them will be forever changed. Love will be denied, badassery will be unleashed, and Terath will never be the same.

Even success comes at a price.
