Kindle Daily Deal: A Memoir, A Romance, A Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi and a Kids' Deal! $1.99 or less!

Today's Kindle Daily Deal includes a memoir, a paranormal romance, post-apocalyptic sci-fi and a kids' daily deal about a princess.

       

The memoir:  Man's Search for Meaning - $1.99

Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.  185 pages.  Text-to-speech enabled.

The romance:  Soul Seducer - $0.99

She has spent her entire life fighting death. Now she’s falling in love with him. . . .

Audra Grayson became a nurse in order to help save lives. But one night after a brutal beating, she almost loses her own. The near-death experience opens a door between the world of the living and the world beyond. Two Grim Reapers invade her life. One is charming, with the angelic blonde looks of a saint and the black soul of a psychopath. The other is dark, dangerously attractive and, in spite of her distaste for his reaper duties, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him.

When Audra's patients begin to die unexpectedly and her loved ones are threatened, she will risk her life—even her soul—to save them. But can she risk her heart to an inhuman being whose very purpose is to take those she is trying to save? 260 pages.  Text-to-speech and lending enabled.

The post-apocalyptic sci-fi deal: Deviants (The Dust Chronicles) - $1.99

In a post-apocalyptic world, where the earth is buried by asteroid dust that’s mutated the DNA of some humans, orphaned, sixteen-year-old Glory must hide and protect her younger brother. If their Deviant abilities are discovered, they’ll be expunged—kicked out of the dome to be tortured and killed by the Shredders. Glory would give anything to get rid of her unique ability to kill with her emotions, especially when Cal, the boy she’s always liked, becomes a spy for the authorities. But when her brother is discovered, and she learns their father, who was expunged for killing their mother, is still alive, she must escape the domed city that’s been her entire world.

Outside in the ruins, they’re pursued by the authorities and by sadistic, scab-covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal-to-humans dust now covering the planet. Glory’s quests to transport herself and her brother to safety make up the thrilling and fascinating first volume of The Dust Chronicles. 320 pages.  Kindle Owner's Lending Library.  Text-to-speech, X-Ray and Lending enabled.  Whispersync for voice: Audiobook available for $1.99 with purchase of e-book.

The Kids' Deal: There Was an Odd Princess Who Swallowed a Pea - $1.99
There was an odd princess who swallowed a pea, a slipper, a crown, a rose, a queen, and even more! Will this odd princess live happily ever after? Illustrations rendered digitally by Lee Calderon show Princess’s belly growing and growing as she eats a host of royal possessions in this zany adaptation of the popular children’s song.  32 pages.  Kindle Owner's Lending Library.  Lending enabled.
