Gelen Amu, by Ira Zima. (Still free?)

"Drama, mystery, horror, romance, and thriller are some genres that this eloquent novel covers without failing to delivering the twist. Gelen Amu is truly an entertaining detective novel that follows the story of a 16-year old girl who has to learn the truth about the mysterious murders." -- Amazon Reviewer

This is not just an intriguing and captivating detective novel that readers of all ages will find interesting, but a genuine historical immersion into time itself.

The young heroine, who has lost everyone close to her, even the ones she never met, feels the connection with those dead and gone and enters a deadly confrontation with the murderer. She cannot ask her friends, who sincerely love her, for help. Only she alone can learn the truth and destroy the maniac.

With every twist of the fascinating story, with every cut-off lock of hair, the fragile sixteen year old girl with a long braid becomes a fiercer warrior, breaking all stereotypes and obstacles in her way. She runs along the blade of a razor whilst the reader is kept in unremitting suspense throughout the entire novel.
Sasha is leading a real psychological war-investigation, a cruel and uncompromising game with death. She intentionally exposes herself to yet another deadly blow. She is killed, but she escapes the endless traps again and again, growing stronger every time, breaking her inner obstacles, striving for her complex goal, which she must achieve in order to save the lives of others and learn the truth.

An Inconvenient Year, by Yvonne Joye. (Still free?)

"I quickly found myself drawn in by Yvonne's account. I was ignorant enough to think that cancer simply meant illness, chemo and hair-loss but I soon learned that that's just a small part of it. I had never heard the facts about how it affects family, children, partners and friends. Yvonne shares her experience with honesty and openess, the accounts of her thoughts and actions even making me laugh aloud sometimes. I read the book in three sittings, feeling very humbled when I turned the last page. I would recommend this book to anyone - whether cancer has touched their life or not." -- Amazon Reviewer


It is a book that deals with the social side of cancer, as a parent, a lover and a friend. It is a story of coping with uncertainty, the reactions of others and living with them too. It documents the total shock and utter fear that a diagnosis brings and the hopelessness of surrendering to a treatment that brings its own baggage yet ultimately insures life. It talks about confronting hair loss along with discovering the more covert assault on all things feminine. Yet at the very root of the book, ahead of the fear and anger, there is humour and laughter. Though the story of cancer has been told before, it has not been told like this"

Genesis Earth, by Joe Vasicek. (Still free?)

"It's been a while since I've found a SF novel that was such a page-turner! Vasicek is great at suspense and keeping his SF elements realistic. I really felt like I was there. The characters are believably flawed--can't have every YA be a super genius at everything, hehe--and the story itself was quite original and satisfying. An enjoyable read! Well worth the chance on a new author. I don't give 5 stars lightly." -- Amazon Reviewer

THE ULTIMATE VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY ENDS WHEN YOU LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT YOURSELF.

Michael Anderson never thought he would set foot on a world like Earth. Born and raised in a science colony on the farthest edge of the solar system, he only studied planets from afar. But when his parents build mankind's first wormhole and discover a world emitting a mysterious artificial signal, Michael is the only qualified planetologist young enough to travel to the alien star.

He is not alone on this voyage of discovery. Terra, his sole mission partner, is no more an adult than he is. Soon after their arrival, however, she begins acting strangely—as if she's keeping secrets from him. And her darkest secret is one that Michael already knows.

Twenty light-years from the nearest human being, they must learn to work together if they're ever going to survive. And what they discover on the alien planet forces them to re-examine their deepest, most unquestioned beliefs about the universe—and about what it means to be human.

This book is rated T according to the AO3 content rating system.

Crossing the Water, by Ian Wilkinson. (Still free?)

"Ian gives an apt account of what can happen when you place a foot wrong in life. The twists and turns of an ordinary life become even more convoluted and snare those closest by as well. I especially liked Ian's descriptions of Ireland in the early 1900's .The limited opportunity ,poverty , and hard grind to put food on the table while living under oppression fed constant struggle. A well documented and authentic account Fon's and Pat's journey to freedom." -- Amazon Reviewer

Each will escape the institution, face the pain of emigration and become a fugitive from justice while trying to build a new life.

Eventually, both their lives entwine around a troubled English family - how does an ordinary working man raise six daughters while taking care of his increasingly crazy wife?
