Road To Shandara: Book One of The Safanarion Order Series (Epic Fantasy Adventure), by Ken Lozito. (Still free?)

"Great story line, interesting characters that I could picture in my mind. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish, could not put the book down." -- Amazon reviewer

From Earth, A Hero Will Rise…
An epic fantasy adventure series begins

My name is Aaron Jace. Until a few months ago I’d never heard of the world Safanar or a place called Shandara. I was a normal guy about to graduate from college and now….now I’m being hunted, even in the solace of my dreams. My life has been a lie and I’ve been pulled into a war that spans worlds. I am the last scion of the house Alenzar’seth, the lords of Shandara. The ones on the hunt are after the one thing that will grant them ultimate power over the world….Me.


Aaron Jace is about to graduate from college when his grandfather unexpectedly dies. He finds a mysterious note that tells him he is a descendant from an ancient and powerful family called the Alenzar'seth, the Lords of Shandara. Along with the note is a family heirloom with a magic all its own, and two mystical swords forged as if they were made for him. The problem is he has never heard the name Alenzar’seth or of a place called Shandara. With the death of his grandfather, Aaron is thrust headlong into a war where the enemies of Shandara have the power to reach across worlds to pull him into the fight. He is being hunted and his family is in danger as Tarimus, a demon sentinel from the world of Safanar, leads the charge to steal the power of the Alenzar'seth before Aaron has a chance to learn his full potential.

In a race that begins on Earth, Aaron will journey to Safanar launching him on a thrilling fantasy action adventure in search of the fabled land of Shandara and learn that while some nations hold the Alenzar'seth in high esteem, others rejoice in its demise and are still searching for the source of power laid hidden amidst the ruins known only to a powerful few.

During his quest, Aaron will discover that the world of Safanar is built upon the stuff of legends and fantasy with dragons and castles, to cities closely resembling the modern cities of Earth with hints to science and technology that even surpass that of Earth. The Road To Shandara is an epic tale of action adventure with ancient and powerful families on distant worlds involving sacred allegiances and loyalties that span lifetimes.

The Road to Shandara is the first book of the Epic Fantasy Series of the Safanarion Order.

This is not your traditional fantasy novel.

Drama Unsung, by Jennifer Jamelli. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"DRAMA UNSUNG is a perfect read for young adults (and adults who are young at heart). As a former high school drama teacher, I can say that Jennifer Jamelli hit the nail right on the head. Her writing portrays a high school drama club to a tee. The characters are all fully developed and easily recognizable; every high school student will identify with at least one of them. Her imaginative use of LES MISERABLES song titles as chapter headings are very clever and reveal Ms. Jamelli’s extensive knowledge of musical theatre." -- Amazon reviewer

All Alexa wants is to be cast as Cosette…until she meets her very own Marius.

Most of the drama in Drama Club happens long before the curtain opens and far away from center stage. Alexa Grace finds herself right at the heart of that drama—in a whirlwind of gossip and emotions and charades—when she moves to a new school and auditions for Les Misérables. She quickly realizes that the auditions are fixed, that the person who is cast as Cosette has it out for her, and that she is in the middle of a dangerous backstage love triangle.

In a tangle of jealousy, passion, frustration, and ambition, Alexa and her castmates struggle to come together to pull off an amazing production. Join them from cast list to curtain as you read DRAMA UNSUNG.

Crown of Serpents (The Tununda Mysteries Book 1), by Michael Karpovage. (Still free?)

"I thought: Indiana Jones meets the Godfather! Read the entire book in two sittings. Had to pause occasionally during the first eight-hour readathon to catch my breath. One of the best novels I have ever read!" -- Finger Lakes Times columnist, Lodi, NY

Book One of The Tununda Mysteries

With the discovery of a campaign journal from an American Revolutionary War officer who fought against the Iroquois Indians, the U.S. Army calls in their top field historian to assess its contents. Jake Tununda, combat vet, Freemason, and half-Seneca Indian is stunned when he gleans from the journal's cryptic Masonic passages clues to the location of an ancient shaman's crown once protected by the White Deer Society, a secret cult of his forefathers.

Jake soon realizes why his ancestors' history was best kept buried. And why peaceful, rural central New York's Finger Lakes region can be deadlier than any battlefield he had ever faced.

CROWN OF SERPENTS, a mystery thriller set in the former heartland of the Iroquois Empire, takes Jake on a fast-paced hunt to find the elusive crown ­ and protect it. He teams up with Rae Hart, an alluring state police investigator, as they snake their way across a politically turbulent landscape marked with murder, arson, lies, and deceit. Deciphering codes, digging up war loot, and fending off the henchmen of billionaire Alex Nero, a ruthless Indian casino magnate, Jake and Rae's survival skills are put to the test. The clues to the crown ultimately lead them deep within sacred Indian caves hidden under the abandoned Seneca Army Depot where the magnitude of the crown's power is revealed.
