Asakaze Peasant by Martin H Kerrigan
Genre - Historical Fiction (PG)
4.3 (3 reviews)
FREE until 14th August 2012
In Feudal Japan, life is harsh and difficult for the peasants. They are at the mercy of the village Samurai, Kira Sama, who controls the village for the Daimyo. The smallest infraction of respect, arcane rules or honour can result in severe punishment without appeal.

Asakaze is a young boy, barely ten years old, when, playing as young boys do, he causes a terrible tragedy that affects his entire family - and changes the direction of his life. Scarcely able to comprehend how his life could have altered so completely since the morning, Asakaze is given harsh lessons in the rules and ritual of Japanese society. 

It is a society full of traps and danger. Romance and betrayal. There are alliances to be made and enemies to be defeated. Asakaze grows into this realm and becomes very adept at the games that are played.

It is a world where honour is everything. Held above all else. A man without honour is nothing. With such honour, comes revenge. Weaving together the threads of the story, it rushes towards a breath-taking climax. Which path shall Asakaze take?


Crooked Man by Tony Dunbar
Genre - Mystery Noir / Hardboiled (PG13)

A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time. 

His clients are all renegades from the asylum, including a transvestite entertainer with curious medical issues, a buxom deadbeat blonde, a doctor who refers his own patients to a malpractice lawyer, and the driver of a Mardi Gras float shaped like a giant crawfish pot. He also has his hands full with an ex-wife and three teenage daughters, who are experts in the art of wrapping Tubby around their little fingers. And somehow, between work and family, Tubby finds time to sample the highs and lows of idiosyncratic Crescent City cuisine, from trout meuniere amandine and French roast coffee with chicory to shrimp po-boys and homemade pecan pralines. 

Tubby is asked to take on a new client: Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub, who has been caught unloading fifteen bales of marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym bag. But when Darryl is later found shot at the nightclub, Tubby realizes he must tighten his grasp on the gym bag - and its million-dollar contents. 

Tubby can't just give up the cash. But if he gets caught, he'll be in jail. And if the wrong people catch him, he'll wish he was.


Lunara Seth & Chloe by Wyatt Davenport
Genre - Action & Adventure (PG)
4.2 (22 reviews)
FREE until 17th August 2012
nique and distinct in setting and style, Lunara takes the reader on a space adventure set in our solar system. This full length novel (388 print pages) is a mix of action adventure and space opera. 

Earth is dead, destroyed by a barrage of meteors. What was left of the population has escaped to Mars and colonized it as humanities new home.

Lunara, a small colony on Earth’s moon, is charged with catching and mining meteors for desperately needed minerals. But the deep-seated human thirst for domination is not easily defeated, nor is the capacity for deceit and betrayal. All it needs is a powerful catalyst, a prize valuable enough to risk plunging mankind into another destructive war. 

Parker McCloud and his friends, Seth and Chloe, are caught up in a violent series of events when Lunara is invaded. On Mars, Parker, Seth, Chloe, and the crew of the Protector attempt to sort out who is responsible, where the tide of suspicion swings back and forth between Aethpis and Zephyria. 

In the end, we see barbarism by the leaders of Mars, great courage by the crew of the Protector, and immense valor by the military on Lunara in adventure one in an exciting new series.



Kingdom by Anderson O'Donnell
Genre - Science Fiction (PG13)
4.6 (11 reviews)
FREE until 15th August 2012
In a secret laboratory hidden under the desert, a covert bioengineering project--codename "Exodus"--has discovered the gene responsible for the human soul. Somewhere in the neon sprawl outside the nation's collapsing economic core, a group of renegade monks are on the verge of uncovering a secret that has eluded mankind for centuries.

In a glittering tower high above the urban decay, an ascendant U.S. Senator is found dead--an apparent, yet inexplicable, suicide. And in the streets below, a young man races through an ultra modern metropolis on the verge of a violent revolution....closing in on the terrible truth behind Exodus--and one man's dark vision for the future of mankind. Welcome to Tiber City.
