Free and bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday, April 19)

Fractured Eden, by Steven Gossington. (Still 0.99?)

"Fractured Eden is a unique mystery/thriller with psychologically-challenged characters and paranormal elements which add layers to the storyline. With each chapter and as the story unfolds, I found myself pulled in more and more by Dr. Rovsing's experiences. The author does a great job of making the reader think, and question, what could be happening in this small Texas town. A great find, I couldn't put my Kindle down. " -- Amazon Reviewer

When a doctor loses everything and is forced to start over, he finds himself in a strange town filled with addiction and mental illness. Dr. Aaron Rovsing, Family Practice Physician, is fired from his medical practice in Connecticut because of alleged incompetence. After he flees and starts over in a town in East Texas, he discovers that things are not as they first appear, and soon Aaron must combat the deranged and addicted minds of the townspeople. Events take an even deadlier turn when he finds himself the next chosen victim of a serial killer who plans to add the doctor to his collection of skeletons. In this town of insanity and with a serial killer waiting to strike, how can Aaron manage to stay sane . . . and alive?

Intertwine (House of Oak Book 1), by Nichole Van. (Still 0.99?)

"It was such a treat to read something that was tightly plotted, well-edited and really emotionally satisfying. Like other reviewers have said, it was laugh-out-loud funny in places, but the book was so much more than just humor. The plot was fast-paced, cohesive and believable (if I can say that about a time travel romance!). I also loved the author's strong sense of character. Each character in the book had a distinct voice and personality, giving the book emotional depth. Clever is really the word that keeps coming to mind. The writing, the plotting, the characters . . . everything was just clever." -- Amazon Reviewer

Time is not a river. It is a vast cosmic sea. Where each life exists as rippling circles on its surface, past and future being eternally present. And occasionally, one expanding ring intertwines with that of another, weaving the lives of two people together. . . .

In 2012, Emme Wilde can’t find the right guy. She wants to feel that swept-off-your-feet dizziness of true love. But so far, her dating life has come up short. Star Trek geek? Nice but too serious. Hippy artist? Cute but too vulnerable. Instead, Emme obsesses over the portrait of an unknown man in an old locket. Granted, a seriously dreamy guy with delicious, wind-swept hair she just itches to run her fingers through. But still. Dead men may be great listeners, but they are not exactly boyfriend material. Emme travels to England, determined to uncover his history and conquer the strong connection she feels.

In 1812, James Knight has given up finding the right woman. All he wants is someone to share his love of adventure. Instead, his life has become a Shakespearean drama. His brother languishes in a tragic star-crossed romance. His beloved sister clings to life, slowly dying of consumption. But then he finds a beautiful mystery woman, dripping wet and half-dead, beneath a tree on his estate. Now if he can uncover her history, perhaps adventure—and romance—will find him at last.

What She Knew: A Novel, by Gilly Macmillan. (Still 1.99?)

"As the author takes the reader through Rachel's ordeal, I felt like I was living it all with her. Well paced with excellent characterization, What She Knew had some great twists and turns, culminating in an ending that I did not expect. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy psychological thrillers and suspense novels." -- Amazon Reviewer


In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One.
In a heartbeat, everything changes…
Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes.  
Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion.
As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most.
Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...

PHANTASIA (Book One: Into the Rain), by M. U. Riyadad. (Still free?)

"Excellent debut fantasy novel. The creativity really blew me out of the water. The creatures and places all inspire a sense of wonder, like a cinematic experience but in words. Characters range from the witty joker to the driven anti-hero. Felt like I was hooked to the story by the dream sequence (about chapter 4 or 5), but it gets REALLY good a little past the halfway point. I saw the twist coming, but loved it nonetheless. " -- Amazon Reviewer

After finding the body of a dragon in a metallic desert, Red finds out that he is the reincarnation of a messiah worshipped by an insectoid alien race bent on invading his star system. Swept into a dangerous adventure across glacial swamps, cloud cities, and dead stars -- Red must evade his true purpose in the world, to summon a forsaken deity trapped in another realm.

Travel into a world unlike any other, a world teeming with creatures the size of planets, parasites that can lay waste to entire civilizations, and mysterious energy sources that can decay the lifeforce of stars. What starts as only a whisper in the darkness, grows into a tale of epic proportions.

Phantasia is a future fantasy epic that stands at 180,000 words.
