MUTANT HUNTER: THE SLICKS
Mutant Hunter - Stephen R. Cox
Genre - Action, Adventure
Rating - R
4.8 (16 reviews)
Free until 18 January 2013
Enter a wormhole in Hell, come out in the Slicks.
It’s hard to imagine a worse place on Earth because there isn’t one. The uncharted no-man’s land covers a fifth of the planet in a polluted, stinking swamp of crude oil, sludge and radioactive waste. The fumes trigger psychotropic reactions in those who venture into the dark and foreboding wasteland. Bizarre and dangerous creatures crawl out of the toxic slime and walk on two legs. Going in is hard – getting out alive is damn near impossible.

The Slicks is a nightmare and Leon Miller has chased a mutant deep into its malignant territory. And it’s not just any mutant he chases. It’s the Holy Grail – Number Six – the last of the government’s Ten Most Wanted Mutants. 

Every soldier of fortune and mutant hunter wannabe on the planet wants a piece of Number Six. The bounty is a record. Killing the mutant would make one a legend. Few, however, have the intelligence, resources or the nerve to go after him. Fewer still will risk tracking Number Six’s spoor into the Slicks.
One who will is Trills, the personal mercenary of the New States’ corrupt High Counsel. Trills, who wants Number Six dead, admires Miller’s mutant hunting skills, but he also sees the bounty hunter as a threat: one that could steal his glory, or worse, bring Number Six back alive.

THE SLICKS picks up where LEGENDS OF THE FALLOUT left off. The woman is still in play. The world is still a freak show. And now, the mutants have a bomb.

November Surprise
November Surprise - Laurel Osterkamp
Genre - Chick Lit
Rating - PG13
4.4 (33 reviews)
Free until 17 January 2013
Twenty years
Six presidential elections
Two brothers
One consuming love affair

For Lucy Jones, the distinction between love and politics is hazy at best. Both can be all-consuming, and either can lead to a heart-breaking loss or an exhilarating win. Whatever the case, if you're seen as a loser, you probably are one. Lucy first learns this lesson in 1988, when she's a shy girl, battling a high school bully and rooting for Dukakis. 

Through the years Lucy will experience stunning victories and agonizing defeats as she makes the choices that define her. Meanwhile, she also struggles to define her relationship with Monty, who comes in and out of her life like the changes in public opinion. Is Monty simply a one-night stand, a kindred spirit, or the love of her life? And by 2008, can he offer her a change to believe in?

Over the course of twenty years and six presidential elections, Lucy grows and adjusts with the times. Filled with snarky political and pop-culture references, November Surprise is about the journey we take to believe in a candidate, in love, and in ourselves.

4.2 (19 reviews)
Free until 17 January 2013
Rzzdik Zolan is a time traveler from a planet 1,000 light years from Earth. He had been assigned to Earth as an evolutionary observer, and his travels have taken him to every era of human history – from the day Christ died on the cross – to the 21st Century, where World War III strikes out of the blue.

Earth in 1 million years, A.D. is a burned out hell-hole populated by mutated bloodsuckers called Redeyes, and led by a mysterious all-powerful being known as The Resistor. Humans have reverted to prehistoric primitives, and are slowly dying out as a species.

Due to the World War, several unwitting parties, including Rizzdik Zolan, have been thrust into the future. Colonels John and Cathy Phillips, on a rare shuttle mission to the space station, are also catapulted into this decaying future, along with Thalick – an intergalactic traveler that resembles an enormous scorpion. Earth is a dying cinder, and yet one hope remains for it: the young daughter of John and Cathy Phillips – Valry Phillips - who may hold the secret to Earth’s salvation – or it’s inevitable destruction and ownership by the Resistor. It will be up to Zolan, Thalick and young Valry to do battle against the most powerful evil Earth has ever known.

Rating - PG13
4.7 (93 reviews)
Free until 18 January 2013
When Seckry Sevenstars is forced out of his village by the greedy Endrin Corporation and relocated to the daunting metropolis of Skyfall City, he harbours resentment for the company and vows to get them back one day for taking away his home, his school and his friends.

Fortunately, the marvels of the city do a good job in distracting Seckry from his anger and homesickness, and it isn’t long before he’s competing at Friction (the city’s most popular multiplayer video game), slurping awe-inspiring multicoloured milkshakes, and getting butterflies on his first date.
Then, when a mysterious email asks Seckry to break into the headquarters of the Endrin Corporation and steal a container full of worms for a hefty sum of money, his anger resurfaces, and he can’t resist the revenge he promised himself.

Alone at night, Seckry creeps through the sewers whilst wondering what experiments Endrin might be doing on the worms, and emerges into the silent complex. But the worms aren’t the only thing that he finds. Staring at him through the darkness, with wide, innocent eyes, is something that makes Seckry’s heart almost stop.

A girl.

She’s shaking, petrified, and has no recollection of who she is or what she’s doing there.
Floodlights bleach the area and Seckry has no choice but to grab a hold of the girl and escape with her.
Suddenly the question of what Endrin were doing with a few worms becomes the last thing on Seckry’s mind. What were Endrin doing with a human?
