Marines (Crimson Worlds I)

Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes.

In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

As Erik rises through the ranks he finally finds a home, first with the marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists - men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved.

Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? Who is the real enemy?

--------------------------

The Cost of Victory (Crimson Worlds II)

The Third Frontier War is raging, and all across human-occupied space worlds are burning. Massive battlefleets struggle for dominance and kilometer-long war ships exchange thermonuclear barrages.

Battered in the early years of the war, the Western Alliance is resurgent. The brilliant Admiral Augustus Garret leads the Alliance fleet from victory to victory, taking the war to the very heart of the enemy empires. And on the ground, Colonel Erik Cain, hero of the Marine Corps, leads his crack troops again into combat, seeking the final battle.

In the background, the secretive intelligence agencies of the despotic Superpowers plot and scheme, using their own soldiers as pawns in the great game for control of space. But the final battle will be fought in the reddish sands of a backwater world, and the prize will be the staggering secret that has lain hidden in a remote cave for untold centuries.

All the Powers struggle for the ultimate victory, but at what cost?

---------------------------

A Little Rebellion (Crimson Worlds III)

Crimson Worlds Book III The Third Frontier War is over, and the Western Alliance is triumphant. All across human-occupied space, colony worlds celebrate the coming of peace.

But peace is an elusive dream, and more trouble is brewing. The war was expensive, and the economies of the Superpowers, always fragile, are on the verge of total collapse.

The Directorate, the shadowy intelligence organization that has become the true power behind the Alliance government, plans to strip the colonies bare to pay the costs of war. Already, they are tightening their control over the freewheeling colonial governments. And the Marine Corps faces total destruction at the hands of the worst traitor in its history.

But the colonists are a different breed than the passive mob on Earth, and they have no intention of meekly surrendering their hard won freedoms. On worlds all across the frontier, plans are hatched and weapons hoarded. And in taverns and meeting halls the words of an ancient text are uttered in hushed tones. A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.

Hero Wanted (Jason Cosmo Book 1), by Dan McGirt. (Still free?)

"It's rare for a book to be able to walk that line between being a genuine fantasy novel, and a parody novel. This book gets that balance just right. Not too silly, but not serious either. It's a real hero's journey, but pokes fun at the stereotypes in the genre while doing it. The wit is sharp, and some of the humor is dry, but that's how I like it. " -- Amazon Reviewer

A funny epic fantasy adventure without the usual delusions of grandeur, HERO WANTED combines fast-paced action, daring escapes, desperate battles, obligatory romance, and an overdose of ridiculousness into a rollicking heroic romp.

The simple woodcutter Jason Cosmo learns there is an enormous price on his head. Now every bounty hunter in the Eleven Kingdoms is on his trail. The Dark Magic Society want him dead. The Gods want him to save the world. Jason just wants to survive a quest he never asked for. His only ally is the renegade wizard Mercury Boltblaster - and Jason isn't sure about him.

HERO WANTED is book one of the Jason Cosmo comical fantasy adventure series, which has been compared to the work of Terry Pratchett* and Douglas Adams*.

The Jason Cosmo comical fantasy adventure series reading order is:

1: Hero Wanted
2: Noble Cause
3: Royal Crush

*Not always favorably, mind you. But it is an honor to be mentioned in the same breath with either of these masters of fantastic comedy, parody and satire.

Shadow Harvest (A Sydney Rye Mystery, #7), by Emily Kimelman. (Still free?)

"I have read all the books in this series and this one was just as fast paced and suspenseful as the previous books. I really enjoyed the interaction and relationships in this book, especially how Blue interacts with Sydney. It was great to see Joyful Justice in action and to revisit old friends and enemies." -- Amazon Reviewer

When Sydney Rye's good friend, Merl, goes missing in Shanghai, she and her faithful dog, Blue, rush to the People's Republic to track him down. Following Merl's trail leads Sydney to probe deep, dark corners of corruption where she witnesses atrocities that make her already cold blood freeze. With time running out and powerful forces closing in on her, Sydney is willing to risk everything to save her friend, but will everything be enough?

The Sydney Rye series has been downloaded over a million times. Recommended for adults who love brave female protagonists, dogs and action packed series that you can't put down until you've read them all. If you have trouble with the f-bomb, violence or sex (not graphic but out of wedlock)... then you shouldn't start this series... it's just not your thing :)

Squall, by Sean Costello. (Still free?)

"Squall has a very fine knit plot that leaves the reader totally in the dark as to what happens next. The book's dark character encircles a near do well theif and his psychotic girlfriend and their entangled with mob activity intertwined with an accomplished pilot in Northern Ontario and his family. The outcome is priceless and unsuspected or predictable.I truly enjoyed reading it and once you pick it up, it's very hard to put down until you're done reading it." -- Amazon Reviewer

MAYHEM. MURDER. RETRIBUTION. (THIS BOOK is RATED-R FOR LANGUAGE by the publisher.)

Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning, he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five-year-old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds. On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son . . . and unborn child.

SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go.
