Archangel Down: Archangel Project. Book One, by C. Gockel. (Still 0.99?)

"As usual author C. Gockel has managed to create an alternative reality without losing the ability to draw readers into the vital humanistic connection so many other SciFi authors lose in their blind rush to show technical savvy. All our identifying emotional characteristics, anger, fear, self-doubt, love, despair, and humor are on display as the colonists of a new world a forced to realize they are not alone in the Universe after all. " -- Amazon Reviewer

A new series from the USA TODAY Bestselling author of I Bring the Fire.

In the year 2432, humans think they are alone in the universe. They’re wrong.

Commander Noa Sato plans a peaceful leave on her home planet Luddeccea ... but winds up interrogated and imprisoned for her involvement in the Archangel Project. A project she knows nothing about.

Professor James Sinclair wakes in the snow, not remembering the past twenty four hours, or knowing why he is being pursued. The only thing he knows is that he has to find Commander Sato, a woman he’s never met.

A military officer from the colonies and a civilian from Old Earth, they couldn’t have less in common. But they have to work together to save the lives of millions—and their own.
Every step of the way they are haunted by the final words of a secret transmission:

The archangel is down.

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

"Okay, I read the book in one day! I would recommend this latest book to anyone wanting to hike, the AT or any trail. While certainly descriptive, Balancing the Blue seems more an emotional realization for the author, than a guide book. That's perfectly ok. I can appreciate this, the honesty and outright candid observations, this is what being face to face with nature is all about...connection. I enjoyed the book immensely, and was actually moved to tears while reading the story of the Fox. I too feel these things about existing zoos and animal theme parks. Another job well done." -- 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.

Dying by the Hour (Dying for a Living Book 2), by Kory M. Shrum. (Still 2.99?)

"I don't even know how to start my review because a lot of what I want to talk about would spoil the book! Maybe I should just stick to the fact that DYING FOR A LIVING was a brilliant book and this is a fantastic follow up? The writing is just as good as the first book: it's well told, well built, and flows nicely. I normally don't like narratives that switch points of view because it can get confusing, but Kory M Shrum does it right and it flows naturally. Shrum also knows how to make those characters believable." -- Amazon Reviewer

After 83 deaths, Jesse Sullivan knows how to die. As a Necronite, she is one of the population's rare 2% who can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don't have to. But using her NRD to save lives is why she's being hunted.

For Ally Gallagher, death is permanent. If she fails to protect Jesse again, there will be no third attempt. After a quiet year the signs of serious danger have returned. People connected to Jesse are disappearing. Her home is vandalized and threatening messages are turning up in the safest of places.

Approaching Night: Book I of Seluna (YA Paranormal Romance) (Seluna (New Greek Myths and Ancient Pantheons) 1), by Ilana Waters. (Still free?)

"This was a fun read! It's set in a magical 19th century universe in a spooky asylum run by a terrifying doctor and his equally evil righthand-lady Nurse Cutter. Despite the dark setting, this book is, at its heart, about a teenage girl trying to find her place in the world and doing her best to help her friends along the way. And for those of you who know & love the story of Endymion, you're in for a treat! " -- Amazon Reviewer

Watch new Greek myths combine with ancient pantheons in this YA paranormal romance!

"Almost everyone is convinced I’m mad. But I’m not sure I believe them."

Seventeen-year-old Seluna doesn’t know why she was admitted to an all-female insane asylum called Silver Hill. She doesn’t know exactly how she makes inanimate objects come to life. And she can’t figure out the reason for the sadistic and brutal experiments on girls here—many of whom are never heard from again.

When Seluna sneaks out to the moonlit, forbidden garden behind Silver Hill, she meets a mysterious boy swimming in a pond. She senses there’s a connection between him and what’s happening at the asylum, but he’s not telling what. Then there are the screams from down long halls and the constant absence of light. No doubt they’re all part of the scheme concocted by the merciless head of the facility, Dr. Catron. He’s growing more and more frantic and violent in an attempt to find the person—or thing—he’s looking for.

Yes, there’s a lot Seluna doesn’t know about Silver Hill. About why moonlight, madness, and murder are following her. But she needs to find out fast . . . before she becomes the next victim.

(Set in the nineteenth century of an alternate world called Hartlandia, APPROACHING NIGHT is a gothic historical romance).
