Free Kindle books! (Wednesday Nov 28)

Here is today's selection of free and bargain Kindle books!

Remix, by Lexi Revellian. (Still free?)

This engaging mystery is Top 100 in the Kindle store, and comes from author Lexi Revellian - whose books sales exceed 50,000 copies. Free today!

"Remix was a great read from start to finish. Caz and Ric have flaws, but are likable and believable, and secondary characters are also well-drawn. Twists and turns kept me guessing and there was plenty of suspense to keep me reading. Descriptions of Caz's work as a restorer of rocking horses were a fun and fascinating element of the story. Author Lexi Revellian seems to really know her subject. The book is fast-paced, well-written, and reaches a satisfying conclusion. Recommended!" -- L. C. Evans, Vine Voice reviewer

REMIX is a feel-good page turner, that you won't want to put down until you reach the satisfying ending.

Caz Tallis restores rocking horses in her London workshop. When shabby but charismatic Joe and his dog turn up on her roof terrace, she is reluctantly drawn into investigating a rock star's murder from three years before - an unsolved case the police have closed. Which, as her best friend James says, is rather like poking a furnace with a short stick...

Oracle, Amazon Vine Voice reviewer, wrote: "This is a highly addictive novel, a good old-fashioned murder mystery with a dash of 21st century celebrity glamour. I struggled to put it down. Lexi Revellian is great at crafting a plot that moves at speed but her biggest talent is in creating characters that the reader can really care about, characters that seem like old friends as the novel draws to a close.

Overall, Remix is great fun, extremely entertaining and - dare I say it - would make an excellent transition to the small or big screen
."

Full length novel: 75,000 words, by the author of REPLICA and ICE DIARIES.

273 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 57 reviews.



Seven Days From Sunday (An MP-5 CIA Thriller, Book 1), by M.H. Sargent. (Still free?)

100 reviews and a 4-plus rating for this Grisham-like thriller. Free today!

"Seven Days from Sunday and the other two works from this independent author are all well crafted, have memorable characters and many twists in plot to keep your attention. Sargent sets the hook early and weaves a story that keeps you turning pages until late in the night. The author does an excellent job of developing his characters, each with distinct personalities that are consistent in each book. While most modern fiction has a central theme of sex,corruption and ample profanity, it's refreshing to find a good clean read." -- Comorant, Amazon reviewer

In this fast paced thriller, Iraq's top terrorist makes two promises - a kidnapped American contractor will be executed on a given date, his body dumped in Baghdad's Green Zone and a major attack will occur in seven days.

Working desperately to find the American and thwart the impending attack is an elite 4-man CIA team which includes an attractive female doctor. But they can only watch helplessly as the terrorist and his masked henchmen behead the American during a live video feed carried on the Internet.

What they don't know is that one of the masked men is not a terrorist, but completely innocent. He is an Iraqi pharmacist who has infiltrated the group. His only objective - to find his missing fiancée, who the terrorist has also kidnapped.

After the beheading, he is free to go. But little does he know that his fiancée will bring the deceased American's head to the Green Zone, and inside the dead man's mouth is evidence linking him to the terrorist.

This is the first novel in M.H. Sargent's popular MP-5 CIA series. The other novels include The Shot To Die For, Operation Spider Web, The Yemen Connection and Alliance of Evil. Sargent has also written a murder mystery set during WWII, Toward Night's End.

317 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 100 reviews.



World's Collider: A Shared-World Anthology, by Jonathan Green. (Still free?)

Here's a unique set of short stories, each linked by the aftermath of a huge explosion in Europe that reveals horrors from deep within the planet. Download this free today!

"What a GREAT read! World's Collider is a collection of apocalyptic short stories that don't just follow a common theme like other anthologies or short story collections. Each story co-exists with the others in the same space and for the same common narrative, providing more of a 'novel' than a collection of individual short stories. The unique writing style of each author makes the entire book fresh and thrilling to read." -- Anastasia, Amazon reviewer

The Collision is the worst disaster in human history. So far…

In the near future, an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider causes an enormous explosion, known as the Collision. The blast flattens a huge chunk of central Europe and punches a massive hole in the Earth’s surface. Over the next decade, unspeakable horrors pour from the rift: vicious creatures with a taste for human flesh, a terrible scream that drives all who hear it insane, a phantom entity that feeds on fear and paranoia, and a nightmare train from the pits of hell, to name but a few. This onslaught of terror causes the collapse of civilization and threatens to wipe humanity from the planet.

World’s Collider is a unique concept in short fiction, where all eighteen original stories are part of a common narrative, recounting the disaster and its aftermath. A true novel by many voices, including Steven Savile, James Moran, Aaron Rosenberg, Trent Zelazny, Jonathan Green, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Kelly Hale, Richard Wright and a host of new talent.

Fifty million people died in the Collision. They were the lucky ones…

"Each component cranks up the tension and the disparate tales combine in mosaic-fashion to deliver a truly gripping narrative." - Ian Whates, author of The Noise Within

472 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 19 reviews.



Second Sight: Second Tale of the Lifesong (The Tale of the Lifesong), by Greg Hamerton. (Still free?)

Yours free today: 600 pages of epic fantasy from the Lifesong series!

"With the wonderful prose of Greg Hamerton, "Second Sight" flows beautifully page after page. It's as good a traditional high magic fantasy as it gets, and I hope the author will continue to use his superb writing style to enchant us with more stories." -- Liviu Suciu, Vine Voice

Something is sucking the life out of Tabitha's song. Someone has stolen the Kingsrim. And the dire prophecy of Wry Tad Zastor is coming true.

The dreaded mark of three is upon this time: the mark of Chaos. Tabitha must face the Sorcerer beyond Eyri, but he was born with hatred for magic and for those who use it. He prepares to end all things in his apocalypse.

But how do you convince a man of the value of life when his has none?


"What brings about the end of life: ultimate order, or ultimate chaos?"

605 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 10 reviews.



The 5th Amulet, by SJ Hailey. (Still free?)

This debut novel from SJ Hailey won first place for "Action & Adventure" at Novelscribe.com, and is currently a Kindle bestseller in Action & Adventure. Download it free today!

"This book had me from the get-go. Hailey has a gift for dropping you in the middle of the action while at the same time giving you access to the characters in a manner that makes you actually care about what's going on. He provides the little personal touches that I appreciate in thriller writers. Not a bad place to start if you are new to this writer's work, as I am." -- Ardin Lalui, Amazon reviewer

Explorer Jacob Mathias discovers a power that will lead him into conflict with governments and a mercenary General.

Ex-soldier Archer Mathias is on the run framed for murder. He discovers a plot to kill his father and anyone else who knows about a secret device. He races across a continent to intercept the threat to his estranged father.

The inevitable collision in a remote jungle could have devastating consequences for the world.

The ultimate power. The ultimate price. 
Is the 5th amulet the key to our salvation or destruction?

397 pages, with a 5-star rating from 2 reviews.



Laura and The Jaguar Prophecy, by Anton Swanepoel. (Still free?)

This action / adventure read is a free download today!

"This book is truly action-packed with a very cool twist at the end. The two lead characters capture your attention from the very beginning of the book and keep it." -- Darrell Dougherty

"The action scenes are well crafted and the suspense keeps one turning the pages. In Laura and Victor, Anton has created an unlikely action duo that gets the job done and leaves the reader hoping for more adventures. Anyone looking for a suspenseful, action story that is an easy read will enjoy Laura and The Jaguar Prophecy." -- Everett Turner, Amazon reviewer

After losing her job, Laura accepts an invitation from an internet chat friend to go on a cruise. Little does she know she would soon become the centre of attention for multiple secret agencies searching for information she unknowingly carries, information which could either end the world or save it, depending on who finds it first. As people start dying around her, her life is suddenly directed into a path that will have far reaching consequences for her, if she can stay alive long enough.

278 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 5 reviews.



Deadly Memories, by Pamela M. Richter. (Still free?)

Here's a romantic suspense novel, by the author of Necromancer. Yours free today!

"This carefully sculpted story did not disappoint; it is infused with romance, friendship, challenges, tragedy, mystery, conspiracy, despair, hope, and danger, all leading to a suspenseful showdown." -- LuvMyKindle, Amazon reviewer

"This is a very visual book - I saw it as a movie in my head. Deadly Memories is basically a story of love and hate and secrets. But this is not a simple story because the characters are not simple and the plot is not simple. There are complications caused by the bad guys and the good guys. All because of secrets. It ends perfectly, with love and friendships and positive memories to make!" -- Elva Moser, Amazon reviewer

What she can't remember might kill her...

"She doesn't remember a thing," Rolph snapped into the phone.

Andrea froze. His back was turned away from her. He didn't know she was there, listening.

"It's been six months, for God's sake. If you harm one hair on her head, I'll contact the authorities. My father would be disgraced, but that will not deter me."

Now Andrea couldn't move. There was no doubt Rolph was talking about her. She wondered how his father, the French Ambassador, could be disgraced.

His voice modulated to a threatening whisper. "This is the end. Otherwise she goes directly into protective custody, and I spill my guts. You've lied to me, made me into a damned traitor, and I'm angry enough to do it out of spite."

Now Andrea knew there were secrets he was keeping from her. What did he mean about protective custody? Was she in danger? The one blank spot in her mind was a mysterious car crash. She didn't know how she had landed at the bottom of a cliff in the Santa Monica mountains of Los Angeles. She remembered the fabulous party in Beverly Hills that night, but try as she might, she couldn't remember the sequence of events leading to the accident.

Rolph's last words chilled her, "I have nothing to lose. I'm a dead man."

326 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 5 reviews.
