Lurk, by Adam Vine. (Still 0.99?)

"Lurk is a taut, tense, brooding tale that grows beyond its influences to create a uniquely modern landscape for new horror, without resorting to gratuitous gore or ridiculous plot devices for shocks, instead preferring to creep inside the unsuspecting reader's head and deliver its chills in all the right places. " -- Amazon Reviewer


There are two sides to every possession...
When depressed college student Drew Brady finds a box of old pictures buried under his house that change to show him whatever he desires, Drew finds himself with the power to watch his friends without them ever knowing.
But as he begins to fall deeper and deeper into the hole of jealousy and despair, haunted by visions of the students who lived at the house twenty years prior and the gruesome fates they met upon moving out, as well as the traces of a stalker who may still be living on the property, Drew begins to suspect there is something under the house that is manipulating him through the pictures, an eldritch, not-quite-dead thing that feeds off depression and weakness, that will drive him to commit acts of unspeakable evil if he doesn't look away...
A blistering page-turner, LURK is horror unlike you've ever read.

Duel in the Dark: Blood on the Stars I, by Jay Allan. (Still 0.99?)

"Jay Allen has proved once again why he is one of the best space opera sci-fi writers in existence today. This new military space opera is well-crafted as are all his works and impossible to put down ... You will not be disappointed ! " -- Amazon Reviewer

A New Adventure by the Author of the Bestselling Crimson Worlds and Far Stars series…

The Confederation has fought three wars against the forces of the totalitarian Union. Three generations of its warriors have gone off to war, held the line against the larger, more powerful enemy. Now the fourth conflict is imminent, and the Confederation’s navy is on alert, positioned behind the frontier, waiting for the attack it knows is coming.

The battleship Dauntless has spent the past ten months patrolling the border, deployed far forward of the main fleet, a forlorn hope, an advance guard positioned to give the warning of invasion. But no attack has come. Her crew is exhausted, and the aging battleship needs maintenance. With the fleet mobilized and the forward bases overloaded beyond capacity, she is sent clear across the Confederation, to a planet along the quiet and peaceful far frontier. Her crew is looking forward to a rest, and Dauntless herself is scheduled for a long-overdue maintenance session.

But the quiet frontier isn’t what it seems…and when a distress call is received from one of the mining colonies on the edge of Confederation space, it falls to Captain Tyler Barron to take Dauntless forward, to find out what is happening, and to put a stop to it.

Barron and his crew have their ship—and each other—but they can expect no other help. Suspicion is strong that Union deceit is at play, that the attack is some sort of diversion, intended to draw Confederation forces from the disputed border. The orders are clear. No ships will be transferred from the prospective battle line. Stopping whatever is happening on the rim is Barron’s responsibility, and his alone.

Barron is the grandson of the Confederation’s great hero, the father of the modern navy. His family name has always carried privilege with it, and crushing responsibility. And now he must prove that he has inherited more from his famous grandfather than name and privilege. He must face the enemy, and win the victory…before the Confederation is caught between two enemies and destroyed.

Cause to Kill (An Avery Black Mystery-Book 1), by Blake Pierce. (Still free?)

"The action in this book flowed so perfectly! I felt like I knew the characters, who were all so quirky and interesting. This was a standout from all of Blake Pierce's other books. The cover, however is not indicative of the wild ride you'll get when you read this fun thriller! Can't wait for the next one!! " -- Amazon Reviewer

“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.”
--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone)

From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.

Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defense attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off—only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter, and her life fell apart around her.

Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. Working her way up the ranks, she has reached Homicide Detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did, and who will always hate her.

Yet even they cannot deny Avery’s brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery that they turn to. It is Avery’s chance to prove herself, to finally find the redemption she craves. And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.

In this game of psychological cat and mouse, women are dying with mysterious clues, and the stakes could not be higher. A frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists—culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO KILL marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #2 in the Avery Black series will be available soon.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery. Pierce did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side, so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.”

Lady of the Sea: The Aureate Chronicles, Book One, by Heather Zwygart. (Still free?)

"My kids always loved mermaids, and as a result, so do I. I loved the way the story drew me in so quickly and left me unable to put it down before finishing - can't wait for part 2! The unusal words and arwea descriptions made the journey almost mystical. Highly reccomended. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Fate has not been kind to Avelessa. A tragic run in with a rebel Mer faction, called the Ael, robbed Avelessa of her only family.

Tragedy strikes again in the guise of the “death sickness”. Her mentor is one, of many, to become ill and there is no cure. He believes a pearl, called Sol Fyre, may be their only hope.

Avelessa has always had someone in her life to make decisions for her. Now she is truly alone. She resolves to go in search of the pearl herself, crossing the boundary the Elders put in place for their safety. She discovers a few things along the way.

The Elders are keeping secrets. And humans… well they’re not as evil as she has been taught to believe.
