The Silver Sphere (The Kin Chronicles Book 1), by Michael Dadich. (Still 0.99?)

"The Silver Sphere is an excellent, epic fantasy novel. The creatures are truly amazing, one of my favorites being Baku the dream eater. The last few chapters had me rifling through the pages as the build up to the ending was well paced. This reminded me of LOTR meets The Hunger Games. I highly recommend it for fans of the genre!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Circles by Ruby Standing Deer

Evolved Publishing brings you a rare glimpse into ancient Native American culture, in the award-winning historical novel, Circles, the first in the Shining Light's Saga series. [DRM-Free]

Historical Fiction, American Indian, Cultural Heritage

With much of the world still undiscovered, a small band of people live a peaceful life, until the dream vision of a young boy, Feather Floating In Water, changes everything. Only nine winters old, Feather’s dreams turn his seemingly ordinary childhood into the journey of a lifetime. He must help his people face a terrifying destiny from which they cannot turn away. He must find a way to make his people listen.
Bright Sun Flower, the boy’s grandmother, guides his beginnings, teaching him about the Circle of Life, and how without it, no life can exist. But he needs a bigger push, and gets it from a grey wolf and a Great Elder. The boy’s journey leads him to discover that the Circle of Life involves all people, all living things, and not just the world he knows.
In the end, an ancient People guide the boy in his visions, toward an unexpected place hidden from outsiders.
This story is steeped in American Indian life, in their beliefs and humor, and in their love of family. It shows how we might benefit from the old ways today.

Galerie (Historical Suspense Thriller), by Steven Greenberg. (Still 0.99?)

"Imagine Stephen King wrote Schindler's List. Though it is well accepted that Nazi atrocities were among the most horrible in history, Galerie manages to break away from the accepted treatment of Europe's darkest hour and explore the horror from an unexpected point of view. In his meticulously well researched novel, Greenberg picks open scabs that other authors have all agreed to let lie. I identified so personally with the heroine that I was sucked in to the story, even though at times I wished I could put the book aside to escape the unraveling mystery and horror." -- Amazon Reviewer


WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Fall 2015 -- Best Books in Fiction
One woman’s quest for truth reveals a dark family secret long buried in Prague’s Nazi past.

Galerie by Steven Greenberg

Evolved Publishing presents a thrilling work of historical fiction that examines how Holocaust horrors still resonate generations later, and how even deep wounds of betrayal can ultimately heal. [DRM-Free]

[Historical, Thriller, Literary, Holocaust]

Every family holds to secrets, but some are far darker, reach deeper, and touch a rawer nerve than others.
Vanesa Neuman is the daughter of Holocaust survivors, and her childhood in the cramped intimacy of south Tel Aviv is shadowed by her parents’ unspoken wartime experiences. The past for her was a closed book… until her father passes away and that book falls literally open. Vanesa must now unravel the mystery of the diary she has received—and the strange symbol within—at all costs.
Set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation and the Jewish Museum of Prague—Adolf Eichmann’s “Museum of an Extinct Race”—Galerie is fast-paced historical fiction in the tradition of Tatiana De Rosnay’s Sarah’s Key. From Jerusalem’s Yad V’Shem Holocaust research center, to the backstreets of Prague, and into the former “paradise ghetto” of Theresienstadt, Vanesa’s journey of understanding will reveal a darker family past than she ever imagined—a secret kept alive for over half a century.
PERFECT FOR BOOK CLUBS: A book club guide is included at the end of the story.

Autumn in the City of Angels (The Autumn Series Book 1), by Kirby Howell. (Still free?)

"I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic stuff done well (The Walking Dead, The Stand), and also a sucker for YA. Autumn in the City of Angels combines so many of my favorite things into one novel. Autumn is a likable protagonist with an interesting back story, and the people she meets - particularly one mysterious fella - are compelling characters in their own right. The story speeds along and leaves you eager for the next installment, and lucky for me, there's already a sequel available! Yay!" -- Amazon Reviewer
