Balancing on Blue - Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail, by Keith Foskett. (Still 1.95?)

"I loved in this book how he starts and ends his journey with story of some of the people he did most of his hike with, I don't think I have ever read a hiking book that has portrayed fellow hikers the way he did and that was a lot of fun.
When you read this book you will feel the passion he has for long distance hiking, and to be able to do what he loves plus making a career out of it, is quite impressive." -- Amazon Reviewer

Shortlisted for Outdoor Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors Magazine.
The third book from award winning writer Keith Foskett.

‘Be prepared for great story telling, unique and interesting characters, humour and insight.'
Andrew Skurka – National Geographic Adventurer of the Year.

A must read that should be first on the list for anyone who loves hiking and the outdoors.

Every year several thousand people attempt to hike all 2180 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the eastern United States. Being the first of the big three hikes in America, it is where long-distance hikers go to cut their teeth.
Keith Foskett has another reason. Dromomania, or the uncontrollable urge to wander, has been part of his life since childhood. Hiking is his chosen method to placate the wanderlust.
Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters including a world champion juggler, a drug dealer, an Everton fan whose visa is expiring and a sex-starved builder from Minnesota, his experience is far from normal.
Battling a fear of snakes, bears, being in the woods after dark and his own demons, it’s physically exhausting — as well as psychologically challenging. His adventure weaves a route through some of America’s wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.

'For years there were two authors writing definitively about the Appalachian Trail, Bryson and Miller. Thankfully, we now have a third, Keith Foskett.'
C. Wilson, Amazon Reviewer.

'A highly anticipated Appalachian Trail Memoir, and well worth the wait.’
Daniel Neilson – The Great Outdoors Magazine.

‘Essential reading for those contemplating their own big adventure.’
David Lintern – Outdoor Enthusiast Magazine.

‘The wilds of this planet are serene, peaceful and offer the chance to break away from a normal existence. Keith’s book wonderful perspective of the trail reflects this freedom.’
Jennifer Pharr Davis – Author and past record holder for the fastest ever hike of the Appalachian Trail.

Twelve Days Of Faery (Shards Of A Broken Sword Book 1), by W.R. Gingell. (Still 0.99?)

"It's been a while since I've read a good Faery story, and this one hit the spot. I like how it was concise without needing to go into all the details about the rules of the fae and courts and all of that. The romance was unconventional but I was cheering them on and cooing as I followed the budding relationship." -- Amazon Reviewer

In Twelve Days Of Faery, King Markon of Montalier is at the end of his tether. His son, Prince Parrin, is afflicted with a rather nasty curse that slaughters, maims, or brutally attacks any woman with whom he so much as flirts. After the rumour that sweeps around the kingdom, promising that any woman breaking the ‘curse’ will be eligible to marry the prince, there is no shortage of willing volunteers. Unfortunately, there is also no shortage of bodies piling up.

Markon needs to do something, but what? Can a visiting enchantress from Avernse help, or is she simply another accident waiting to happen? And will Markon be able to give her up to his son if she does break the curse?

Twelve Days of Faery is the first novella in the Shards Of A Broken Sword novella trilogy.



136 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 16 reviews.

                     



Hollownton Homicide (Anthony Hollownton Series Book 1), by Gretchen S. B.. (Still 0.99?)

"As the story progressed, the characters were fleshed out a little more and I ended up really liking them. I thought the mystery part was really good. There were plenty of twist and turns to keep things interesting. I really liked the dual mystery of the killer and the paranormal elements. I also liked that the main storyline was completely wrapped up but there are still enough questions to draw me into the next book. Overall, I thought this was a great book and a promising start to a new series. I look forward to reading more in this series. I would very much recommend this to fans of mysteries and paranormals." -- Amazon Reviewer

Homicide detective Anthony Hollownton thought he had seen it all until he and his partner, Rick Nelson, are called to a murder scene unlike any Tony has come across. There are no witnesses and none of the neighbors heard a thing.

Once Tony starts to investigate the facts of the case become stranger and stranger. As the body count rises Tony is drawn into a world he did not know existed. Starting with a visit from a dead woman from his past. He must decide whether the paranormal truly exists or if these killing are some kind of delusional gang war.

Blaise Maximillian: Bitter Defeat, by Matthew Sylvester. (Still 2.99?)

"I'm a big fan of alternate history in general, and the differences in Maximilian's world are subtly introduced and yet executed with excellent detail to help fully immerse and hook the reader. It's an interesting take on WW1 and definitely very unique in the way it mixes diesel-punk, grimdark and historical realism. It keeps the pace fast and the pages turning. The detailed battle scenes are fast-paced, breathless and enjoyably stressful. Maximilian himself is a great character; rounded and deep enough to make the reader car and yet he's morally-grey, which IMO are the best sorts of heroes.
" -- Amazon Reviewer

For 8 long years the Great War has raged. Blaise Maximillian has been there from the start. A bright-eyed and fearful young Ensign, the realities of war change him into a hard-bitten soldier and an even harder policeman.

Detective Inspector Blaise Maximillian of the Combined Imperial Special Intelligence Bureau, now works to protect the British Empire any way he can. Nothing will stop him from carrying out his duty. Not the law, not morals, not even ethics. A flawed man, he will do anything it takes.
