Free and bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday May 17)

TSUNAMI STORM, by David Capps. (Still 3.99?)

"This book was so well written, researched, constructed and developed that 5 Stars are just not enough! I loved the technical detail and the science involved that produced the most plausible and probable scenario that I have read in years! I am reminded of the the first time I read Hunt for the Red October, by Tom Clancy. He was a a phenomenon in is works and this book is just the same quality and intrigue mixed with current events that Clancy always managed to deliver.
The characters he created to bring everything together and build such a suspenseful plot and believable story line were so well drawn for us that you felt you knew each of them personally." -- Amazon Reviewer

The US has launched secret weapons of mass destruction on other countries. And awaits what might be cataclysmic retaliation…

China is devastated by an 8.0M earthquake that leaves 70,000 people dead with hundreds of thousands injured and untold property destroyed. The Chinese government soon learns that it was no natural disaster, but rather an orchestrated attack by the American government using their High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) weapon. China ceases foreign relations with America and creates their own version of the weapon in retaliation. They plan to attack the US by sending a submarine with mini nuke mines to create a massive rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

But what neither China nor the US knows is that the attack on China was an unauthorized assault perpetrated by a US Navy Vice Admiral. Because of his arrogance and pride, more innocent people may have to pay with their lives.

One of the many coastal towns in peril is Dolphin Beach, Oregon. The new mayor Willa McBride tries to protect her townspeople while her sister, the Senator Elizabeth Bechtel, tries to uncover who engineered the attack on China. What is unclear is whether the Senator’s goal is aimed toward the greater good or for her own political gain.

To protect the US coast, the government sends out the submarine USS Massachusetts to locate and destroy the Chinese sub. Now it seems the only protection for the American coast is one US submarine and its heroic crew against a truly catastrophic event…

Words of Mercury: Tales from a Lifetime of Travel, by Patrick Leigh Fermor. (Still 1.99?)

"The 20th Century 's greatest travel writer was also one of it's most extraordinary men . A decorated war hero with the British commandos in Crete in World War II , Patrick Leigh Fermor was at once an adventurer and man of letters. The essays in this volume constitute some of the finest writing in the second half of the 20 th century. " -- Amazon Reviewer


A career-spanning anthology from the greatest traveler—and travel writer—of the twentieth century.

The adventures of Patrick “Paddy” Leigh Fermor, Britain’s most beloved traveler, began in 1933, when he embarked on a walk from Holland to Constantinople—the entire length of Europe—at the tender age of eighteen. Sleeping in barns, monasteries, and, on occasion, aristocratic country houses, the young adventurer made way his through the Old World just as everything was about to change.

Words of Mercury collects pieces from every stage of Leigh Fermor’s life, from his journey through Eastern Europe just before the outbreak of the Second World War—described in gorgeous, meditative detail—to his encounter with voodoo in Haiti, to a monastic retreat to Normandy to try to write a book. Also included is the story of one of his most well-known exploits from the war—his planned and executed kidnap of a German general under British orders. Ever the student, “Paddy” also wrote extensively on his encounters with polymaths, linguists, and artists all over the world.

Over the course of his illustrious lifetime, Leigh Fermor wrote several acclaimed travel books, countless essays, translations, and book reviews, many of which are compiled in this anthology. His unique experiences out in the world fed his insatiable curiosity and voracious appetite for scholarship. His tales, written in a singular, elegant style, have inspired generations of writers and continue to shape the language of travel.

The Eden Trilogy: Omnibus Edition, by Keary Taylor. (Still 0.99?)

"This book was SO good! I read it every night and had a super hard time putting it down. I loved how strong Eve was and watching her evolve in her new world. I really enjoyed the love triangle. I kept putting myself in her shoes and trying to decide whether I'd pick West or Avian. She picks where my heart would have went as well. You want action and romance? This book is it. I've always loved everything written by Keary and I will continue to be her faithful fan. " -- Amazon Reviewer

TorBane was created to save the world. Cybernetic technology designed to fuse with human DNA gave it the ability to heal anything. Instead, it left ninety-eight percent of Earth’s population more machine than man.

Eve is a soldier without a past. Her only goal is to keep her family, the colony of Eden, alive and away from the Bane: those infected by TorBane. She hunts, she watches, and she fights when needed.

Avian and West will wake her up. One a soldier, one a keeper of secrets—they will both test Eve’s sanity and awaken emotions she never knew she could feel. And she will make a choice that will change the future of mankind.

Those few humans left will fight. Against the evolving Bane, against those among themselves that may be human, but may not have a conscience or soul. And they’ll stand together until the very end.

The Eden Trilogy is The Terminator meets The Walking Dead with a heart-twisting romance and an explosive finish you’ll never see coming. This omnibus edition includes THE BANE, THE HUMAN, THE EVE, THE RAID: an Eden short story, and THE ASHES: an Eden prequel.

Into the Fire (Vigilante Justice #1), by FJ Gale. (Still free?)

"Empathy with the main characters, a sense of frustration with government officials, all filled by male egos and a sense of macho dominance. A lone female brings a sense of balance, not needing a man to rescue her, it seems, yet, she has a sense of vulnerability. While violence is integral to the story, it does not overburden the storyline. The understanding of how one can be derailed by circumstances makes for interesting characters.

A page turner, gripping the reader to want to see how it is resolved. Highly recommended reading." -- Amazon Reviewer
