Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
There are quite a few free books we are bringing your way this week! As a reminder, most free books are free for a limited time. Some of them we know how long they’re free for as the authors have told us, others we don’t. So be sure to grab them as soon as you can if you see any you like!
Has school started where you are at? If you have school-aged children, did you do anything fun before school started? If you don’t have children attending school, did you get to take any time off for a staycation? Or even a small vacation somewhere?
Another question: what are your favorite genres to read?
I’m a bit of an eclectic reader. I read everything, but prefer fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance and some romance, though I have been known to enjoy science fiction here and there too. Have you ever accidentally picked up a book because it was on clearance at a bookstore because it looked interesting just to find out it wasn’t in a genre you normally read, but read it anyway because it interested you? That has happened to me a lot!
Enjoy and happy reading!

“What do you know about the ZOO?”
Born from the fertile imagination of bestselling author Michael Anderle
The former sergeant took in a deep breath, tilting his head as he looked at the man in front of him.
“Unofficially? It’s a military experiment gone bad, with all the pros and cons that come with it. No official word was shared, of course. This means that I don’t officially know the source of the damn jungle starting to cover the Sahara Desert nicknamed the Zoo comes from some goop that was found on a missile that may or may not have alien origins.”
He stopped his explanation a moment and eyed the Retired Colonel in front of him, “Remind me, what is the government’s official stance on aliens again?”
Anderson smirked, “The jury is still out on that one.”
Jeremiah Johnson needs a job, and Retired Marine Colonel Anderson needs a man with Johnson’s particular skills.
It’s either a match made in Heaven, or Hell. It all depends on which side of the gun you happen to be standing on.
The safe end, or the business end.
Inside the ZOO isn’t the only place people are acting greedy. Doctor Courtney Monroe has taken control of her Dad’s legacy – she just needs two men to help make it happen.
Anderson and Savage just might be up to the task.
Abducted along with thousands of others. Transported to a world of slavery for alien masters. Mind-wiped, so every hellish day in the mines feels like just another job shift.
This has been going on for millennia. And one day, archaeologist Ali Johnson decodes an ancient Sumerian tablet that unveils the truth. Those secrets set her on a trail of clues that lead to the right place at the absolute wrong time.
The plan to keep humanity at heel relies on periodic purges, and the countdown to genocide is ticking. Ali may be the spark that ignites galactic rebellion.
But before she can save mankind, she must remember who she is, what she’s lost, and why one terrible figure continues to haunt her dreams.
Hang on for the explosive series kick-off that thrills like Indiana Jones and twists like Total Recall. If you’re ready for the sci-fi adventure of the year, join Ali and grab Brandon Ellis’s Mesopotamian Pew-Pew now.
When a reluctant druid gets blackmailed into working for an evil faery queen, he’ll walk through fire to complete one last job—come hell or high magic!
Every druid knows…
Dealing with the Fae is a death sentence.
So why would I risk my life to help an evil Faery Queen?
A year ago I swore off druidry, and for good reason. Now I spend my days behind six acres of scrap iron, steel, and magic wards, where the fae can’t bother me.
But when a Faery Queen with god-like magical powers calls, you don’t send her to voicemail. Now I have no choice but to find out why evil incarnate has requested my presence.
One thing’s for sure…
If I get dragged back into the supernatural world, there’s gonna be hell to pay for it!
A New Adult Urban Fantasy Novel From M.D. Massey
If you enjoy urban fantasy novels that feature snarky male protagonists, then you’ll love this paranormal thrill ride with a twist of mystery and suspense.
Because who doesn’t love a down on his luck magician who has to fight to save the people he loves?
From space they came, to space they returned, humanity searching for a way home. The people of the Cygnus system were determined to find other life, maybe even return to Earth as they explored the known galaxy. Humanity would not be denied.
And they had the company of the intelligent species humans created centuries past, who evolved and became equals, partners in the journey to a better place. They were all the people of Cygnus VII.
From the ashes of their past, Cygnus was rising.
The motto of the Space Exploration Service was “the ship is life, save the ship.” And the crew had done that, repeatedly, even though it cost lives. Everyone on board the Cygnus-12 volunteered for the Space Exploration Service because they believed that the risk was worth it. For all humanity, they went to space, to find what was out there, return with knowledge to improve their civilization. And if they could return with word that Earth was there, alive and well, then that would make every death that much more meaningful.
Cygnus Rising is the first book in a Space Opera series based within the Free Trader universe.

Root and Branch
ROOT AND BRANCH is a realistic thriller set in a near-future America where an Islamist-inspired intifada triggers emergency security measures that go terribly wrong.
Roger Zorn, owner of a French private security company, is delighted at having won a lucrative contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as part of the government’s new program of emergency security measures. The measures are launched when the U.S. military response to sneak attacks by Iran and Pakistan on America’s electrical grid provokes a wave of Jihadist-inspired violence across the U.S.A.
Zorn’s work for DHS requires him to apply his company’s Triage risk assessment technology to evaluate terrorist suspects captured in the U.S. and sort out the jihadists from nonviolent Muslim residents. But when Zorn’s inquiries lead him to discover that DHS and its lead contractor have been manipulating Triage scores to deport massive numbers of Muslims and is ‘disappearing’ the most violent ones, Zorn faces a choice.
Will he say nothing and sell his company to DHS’s prime contractor before scandal breaks, or will Zorn step up to expose the abuses and risk bringing the full wrath of America’s national security establishment down on his head?
