Sci-Fi Spy Thriller Free on Kindle

J.O. Quantaman’s Loose Threads: Cool Assassins 1 is free on Kindle today:

“Multi-genre Alternate History with a human touch. Cooperation versus hierarchy, circa 2070s.

KIRKUS REVIEW: “Loose Threads: Cool Assassins 1″
# Quantaman introduces an elite team of spies in this debut sci-fi novel.
# In the not-too-distant future, Nyssa Persson wakes up in a hospital room with a shaved head, unsure of how she got there. The last thing she remembers is fleeing the goons of her Bossman, a pimp who has kept her in servitude for three years. A nurse enters and greets her with a bright smile: “Awake at last….Welcome to Dog Breakfast co-op.”
# The co-op turns out to be a democratic community of agents and spies who serve as a check against polluters, plutocrats, and corporate pirates. Nyssa, who’s persuaded to join the group, submits herself to rigorous martial arts training and learns to put her biography to use in the service of espionage.
# Her path intersects with a number of colorful outsiders, including Jenna Marov, a world-class climber who suffers from vertigo and was recently imprisoned in a terrorist detention facility, and Yamazaki Kazuo, a security chief and former kickboxer who still obsesses over a brief encounter with a femme fatale. The deception is taxing, and the work dangerous, but Nyssa is adamant about using her skills to help create a better world. More important, she’s finally found a community that feels like home.
# The novel features some interesting graphic flourishes, including double-indented lines that reveal first-person character thoughts in the otherwise third-person narration. A number of colored maps and charts are included to help the reader feel closer to the action. End material boasts a glossary of futuristic jargon and an excerpt from a sequel novel.”

Contemporary Novel Free on Kindle

Nicole D’Settemi’s Addictarium (Asylum of Anarchy) (The War Stories Chronicles) is free on Kindle today:

“Drugs. Sex. Detox. Art. Recovery. Prostitution. Music. Street life. Poetry. Toxic love. And, those are just on the surface. The layers and complexities of Addictarium will shock and enthrall you…

When wild-child, and south Florida escapee, Danielle Martino finds herself curled in a ball on the cold tile floors of her filthy rank bathroom in the tiny studio she rents with her fiancé and partner-in-crime, she knows it’s time to quit abusing heroin. Severely impaired from shooting a bad batch of black tar heroin, and already partially blind from the infection that the muddy poison has caused, she is forced to hitch a greyhound bus to New York City, and to abandon her care-free, American-bohemian, drug infested life-style.
Hailed everywhere as a beautiful, unique, honest, raw and poetic account of recovery, Addictarium takes readers on a compelling journey through the life and eyes of the narrator; a creative, nomadic, deep–but, incidentally broken–young woman, and underlines the contributing factors to what it’s really like to suffer from addiction. With magnificent candor–and sometimes emotionally crippling descriptions–we witness Danielle’s fight towards recovery from more than just heroin, as Addictarium brings the readers on a fascinating and harrowing, brutal tale of a young women’s recovery from total and mass self-destruction.
–Addictarium highlights in the starkest of lights, why it is so difficult for addicts to receive the recovery they seek, when they finally do decide to put the drug down.”

Paranormal Vampire Novel Free on Kindle

Claudette Melanson’s Rising Tide: Dark Innocence (The Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 1) is free on Kindle today:

Rising Tide will sink its fangs into you, keeping you awake into the wee hours of the night

Could Maura’s life get any worse? …turns out it most certainly can.

Isolated and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura’s never been able to make friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that almost everyone around her keeps their distance.

Even her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses to utter a word about her long-lost love?

When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

If life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring, compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother’s lies—become obstacles in Maura’s desperate quest for the unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.”

New Age Romance Novel Free on Kindle

Allie Gail’s The Firefly Effect is free on Kindle today:

It was supposed to be nothing more than a fantasy.

All right, so I’ll admit that maybe steamy, impulsive sex isn’t the ideal way to cope with a total stranger wandering into your beach house unannounced. But discovering that my anonymous lover is none other than Shane-the-Pain Becker, the dirtbag spawned only to torment me throughout adolescence…well, somebody kill me now.

To add insult to injury, there’s a major hurricane bearing down on us and we’re stuck together for the duration. I don’t know which force of nature scares me the most – Hurricane Elliott or Shane.
***
Never in my wildest dreams would I have envisioned a scenario where Melanie Lane would be wrapping her sweet legs around me. Scratch that – there were, in fact, an abundance of wild dreams where Felony Melanie was concerned. I just never thought I had a chance in hell of making them reality. I mean, the girl thinks I’m sewer scum and always has.

Even now. She still believes I’m not good enough for her. I’m assuming that’s why she seems bound and determined to shut me out.

She keeps insisting this is just sex.

But as long as the hurricane keeps her trapped in my arms, I will make it my mission to convince her otherwise.”
