Freshmen (The Felix Chronicles Book 1), by R.T. Lowe. (Still free?)
“I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast read with some great characters you can really care about. I liked that I could not predict where this story was going. It follows college kids and you really feel like you can see their school and its community. ” — Amazon Reviewer
“Imagine if Voldemort was the Chosen One. A dark and wonderfully disturbing urban fantasy that sets a new standard for those seeking an epic adventure high on substance, grit and originality.”
Reeling from a terrible accident that claimed the lives of his parents, Felix arrives at Portland College hoping only to survive the experience. In time, however, with the help of his reality star roommate, and Allison, his friend from home, he immerses himself in the distractions of college life and gradually dares to believe he can put his past behind him.
But a fateful storm looms on the horizon: In the nearby woods, two hikers become the latest victims in a series of gruesome murders; a disfigured giant embarks on a vicious cross-country rampage, killing teenagers who fail his ‘test’; an ancient society of assassins tasked with eradicating the wielders of a mysterious source of power awakens after a long silence; and a grassroots movement emerges from the shadows to capture the public’s imagination, its hidden agenda as revolutionary and terrifying as the man who created it. Only one man—the school’s groundskeeper—knows that the seemingly unrelated events are connected, and that an eighteen-year-old boy stands in the center of the storm.

Sam Dorsey And His Sixteen Candles (Book 1 in Sam Dorsey And Gay Popcorn series), by Perie Wolford. (Still 0.99?)
“This was a great YA read! There are a few things that work really well in this book. First, Wolford’s main character holds a very authentic point of view throughout the story. “Turning 16″ is the personal narrative of Sam, a teenage boy as he navigates through life, love and intimacy. It’s easy to get caught up in the storyline, because Sam’s thoughts and hijinks were so consistent of those of a teenage boy who is discovering the complications of love for the first time.

A tribute to John Hughes movies and the 80es era.
Sam never liked his birthdays because not a single one of them was happy. When he turned one, he fell face-down into his birthday cake. When he turned seven, he broke his arm. At his twelfth birthday, his house caught fire. Now Sam is about to turn sixteen and he is dreading the day.
The only birthday wish he has is for Jake Timbers, the Mr. Popular of Arcadia High, to acknowledge his existence, or better yet give him a happy-birthday kiss. But that’s unlikely to happen. Or is it?

Blood Ties (Julie Collins Mystery Book 1), by Lori Armstrong. (Still free?)
“This book has all the elements I find critical in a novel: strong relationships between characters, strong character development, and a wide range of emotions that kept me flipping pages and then re- reading the book to make sure I got it all. This is an absolute must read, and you won’t be disappointed. Fortunately, there are more books in the series and you will devour each and every one of them over and over again.” — Amazon Reviewer
Given the trainwreck my life has become, I’ve earned my cynical attitude. I’m trapped in a dead-end job at the Bear Butte County Sheriff’s Office—a position I took out of desperation after the brutal murder of my Lakota half-brother. Three years have passed, his case is cold, and my coping mechanisms—tequila, cigarettes and dubious men—no longer serve as excuses for my grief; they define who I am.
Welcome to my world—Julie Collins, harbinger of doom and a sucker for lost causes.
So when the body of a sixteen-year-old white girl surfaces and the death details are alarmingly similar to my brother’s murder, Kevin Wells—my best pal and local PI—admits he’d been hired to find the missing kid before she turned up dead.
I’m roped into helping Kevin tie up loose ends regarding the girl’s disappearance…and that’s when things begin to unravel. Lies are revealed. Bullets start flying. Yet nothing—not even death threats—will stop me from digging for the truth and finding the justice for this girl that my brother was denied.
But the killer is willing to kill again to make sure these secrets stay buried. And this time, I’m in the crosshairs.
