Free and bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday Dec 22)

Locksmith's Closet (Locksmith Trilogy Book 1), by Paul Briggs. (Still 0.99?)

"This was such an enjoyable book! I truly didn't want to put it down and when I had to, I couldn't wait to pick it up again. The characters were brought to life through great description and the adventures they encounter were nail-biting-exciting. I loved the twists and turns and story development that left me anxious for the next book. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventure novels or science fiction, young adults on up." -- Amazon Reviewer

Lachlan Smith doesn’t think of himself as a hero. His father lived a heroic life, and died an even more heroic death. Locksmith has no ambitions to do the first, and absolutely refuses to do the second.


But everything changes when Lock and his friend Gary investigate a strange noise in the closet of his new bedroom… and discover a portal to another world. It is a vast, steaming jungle, full of ruins and devoid of all human habitation. It is a dangerous world with many predators, from giant feral dogs to swarms of hungry rats. It is our world, many years from now, when the human species has gone extinct.

Lock and Gary experiment with the portal, and find that by making small changes in the present, they can alter the future. But can they make the biggest change of all? Can they discover what happened — or will happen — in time to prevent it?

And where did the portal come from? Why is it in his closet? Why did the previous owner of this house disappear without a trace? And who is the strange man who has made himself an enemy of Lock's family, insisting that the house belongs to him and that he will stop at nothing to get it?

Lock and Gary are not heroes — yet. But the adventure they have chosen will test them as they have never been tested before. They'll need all their intelligence, courage and will to save themselves — and everybody else.

Nyxe, by Jedaiah Ramnarine. (Still 2.99?)

"Nyxe is by no means a damsel in distress, but a strong woman in her prime, cast by fate in the shoes of the preserver of mankind, and flanked by a small by equally strong cast of characters. The story is riveting from start to finish, from the underground facility that serves as humanity's last bastion, to the reaches of dark space. Absolutely phenomenal." -- Amazon Reviewer

" Absolutely Phenomenal. "

"A Must Read! This book is The True Epitome of Everything Marvelous."

"This book embodies Art, Science, Creativity, and just nothing but  Plain Genius!"

"Mentally Stimulating, and a  Good Read. "

"I was right in the middle of the story the whole time, and I couldn't put the book down to save my life. "

"If you didn't get a chance to catch the box-office smash "Lucy" well, do not miss out on Nyxe; she could easily stand toe to toe with the aforementioned heroine.  The Author has a Definite Voice and this is  not another predictable "impending doomsday" story. "

"Amazing from start to finish! "

From the hardships of uncovering our dark history to the battles ahead in reconstructing a colony capable of sustaining human life - Nyxe, the girl once known as 'Test Subject 17' has her work cut out for her with no other option but to press on no matter how turbulent the storm gets.

Determined and sure yet still human - can this woman really be the only hope mankind has left?

Half a World Away: Searching for a Gap Year Travel Adventure, by Alistair McGuinness. (Still 2.99?)

"I've lived nearly half my life overseas, so the descriptions of language barriers, cultural misunderstandings, explosive diarrhea, and tourist traps rang honest and true. What impressed me was the way Alistair and Fran kept open hearts and minds when confronting third world conditions and strange foods and animals. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Three things happened simultaneously. The lioness charged, Alistair fled across the parched savannah and his wife screamed for him to run faster. Stuffed deep inside his tattered rucksack was a guidebook containing advice on what to do in wildlife emergencies, which he planned to read if he survived the next thirty seconds. Future plans to climb Kilimanjaro, teach English in the Amazon and live in Australia were temporarily forgotten as he turned to face the pouncing lioness, thinking back to the words of advice from his mother-in-law. "Don't do anything silly, and look after Francine." From deep underground in a remote Bolivian mine to the scorched Australian outback, this is an adventure travel story. It explores the turbulence of redundancy, the excitement of travel, the anguish of leaving home and the challenges of starting a new life in Australia.

Loss Of Reason (State Of Reason series Book 1), by Miles A. Maxwell. (Still free?)

"If you are a fan of action / adventure novels, you will love ‘Loss Of Reason.’ I found this to be a fun romp, full of intrigue, romance and nearly non-stop action. If you want to lose yourself in a story for a few hours I highly recommend this one. It is first of a series and the sequels promise to be every bit as exciting." -- Amazon Reviewer


One Of The Most Disturbing Stories You'll Ever Read


Distant for many years, Franklin out of Pennsylvania and his step-brother Everon out of Nevada are connected by a single link: Their sister Cynthia.

Enter The Nightmare


A nuclear bomb is detonated in New York. Banker, wife, mother, Cynthia lives in New York.

The military has quarantined the city. All bridges and tunnels have been destroyed or blocked. Easterly winds have forced the bomb's huge radiation cloud out over Long Island. But the wind is about to change.

Franklin climbs mountains and truly understands people. Everon can fly anything. And Cynthia's brothers are determined to find her.

If it were your sister, what would you do?

***A ripping good tale of how intelligence and determination can overcome the near-impossible. And of the true price of altruism.

Before there was Wool there had to be a Loss Of Reason.
