Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Happy New Year!
I hope you had a wonderful end to 2020 and your 2021 has started off nice and quiet. I know mine has been quiet but busy, but I’ll take it.
I hate to admit this, but I have done zero reading so far in the new year. It happens. I’ve been busy with projects and recharging as well. (I may have binge-watched Z Nation and season 4 of Sabrina over the holidays).
We have a ton of great books at bargain prices for you this week as well as free books at the promo down below (and the chance to win 50 books – how sweet would that be?). Be sure to check it out below. I also hear a rumor we may be having a contest soon to win a 6-month Kindle Unlimited subscription. Keep an eye out for that.
Enjoy and happy reading!

The gods are real…and they want their world back.
Thousands of years ago, ancient deities fought a civil war that nearly destroyed the earth. They were defeated by a great warrior—and banished to spend eternity beyond the reach of the humans who once served them.
Their war is raging once again.
And once again, it will require a great hero to save humanity.
Unfortunately for humanity, I’m that hero.
My name is Vic Stratton. I’m no saint, but I’m the best chance we’ve got at surviving the chaos about to be unleashed. But hey, at least I have my good looks, a quick tongue, and the sword of the gods on my side.
And I’m going to need it. Because when the gods return, all hell will break loose.
Forgotten Gods is a fast paced adventure series with a novel take on the Urban Fantasy genre. Vampires, werewolves, and all manner of monstrous creatures serve the unknown powers of old, but the story centers on the humans who make the heroic choice to fight them.
You won’t forget, Forgotten Gods.

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.
After narrowly escaping her enemy, Ali reels back from the edge of death.
She finds herself surrounded by a strange subterranean species who hide from the enslavement she just fled. Some think Ali is the long-awaited key to their salvation. Others want her killed.
But Ali doesn’t have time for life-or-death politics. She knows the Annunaki overlords have a planet-killing weapon en route. Her friends, family, along with the entire Bawn race, face annihilation…except for those willing to betray and sabotage for the Annunaki cause.
Ali may only have days to unravel the knot of doom tightening around them all. Still, she can’t escape one mounting fear: What if this threat is only a trial run for the Annunaki? What if the real target is Ali’s home, the birthplace of humanity and all the rebellion that comes with it — Earth?
The aliens want her dead. Easier said than done.
Ali, archaeologist and expert at cuneiform translation, knows about the long-departed Anunnaki slavers, not just because of the ancient writings she has found in Mesopotamia, but because she has their blood running through her veins.
Now Ali’s found a terrifying truth:
The Anunnaki are coming back.
The powers afforded by Ali’s dangerous mixed blood make it just conceivable she can stop them… once she hooks up with the Space Templars.
Oh, and they have to fix a little problem: the Anunnaki left behind portals all around the Earth through which they can pour millions of troops in a matter of minutes.
Step one: Close the back doors.
So the race is on:
Can Ali kill the portals before the Anunnaki kill her?
Fight or Flight
What happens when a washed-up, black-listed, alcoholic, but still handsome movie star signs a contract for medical experiments with a sinister race of alien machines?
Ben “Coop” Cooper is about to find out.
The reality of an unregulated medical laboratory on Titan is nothing like his past roles from the big screen. There’s no director on hand to yell “cut” when he’s fighting for his life. And no co-star ever injected him with an alien virus before. Instead it’s all bar fights and police pursuits and beatdowns from alien robots.
But in the end, Coop will strive to do what all movie heroes do: save the world from certain doom.
Welcome to Fight or Flight, Book One of the Adrenaline Rush series, an action-packed, humorous romp in the orbit of Saturn that may just hold the cure for all human illness and disease.
Axes and Angels
Mythical creatures are real, and the world is just finding out.
A dangerous job, a pair of pint-sized familiars on her shoulders, a crush on a constellation … No wonder Theo Apollonia’s relationship status just says, “It’s complicated.”
Snarky thief Theo Apollonia has life figured out: steal priceless artifacts—pay off her debts.
But when she and her familiars, Simon and Garfunkel, take on their most dangerous heist yet, they find themselves on the wrong side of a powerful crime boss …
A job for a banished demigod goes sideways…
Now Theo must take on powerful mythical guardians, warring gangs and an underground arena where constellations and mythical creatures battle to the death.
First rule of mythical Fight Club: everyone dies.
More is at stake than just the lives of her and her friends or even enslaved mythological beings.
If not stopped, the world will wake to a dark new day … and an even darker new god.
Theo has a decision to make: Run to protect herself and those she loves, or fight in the slim hope that she has what it takes to stop the apocalypse.
Over 150,000 words of octane-fueled magic and mayhem fill this tome.
The Witching Vault
Run the witching vault. Protect the Gateway. Say please. And don’t get killed.
After her release from magical prison, Jessica Northwood can’t hold a job to save her life. So when an apprenticeship opens up at a spellbound bank, no questions asked, she can’t exactly say no… But she definitely should have.
For centuries, the bank’s owners have stood between the Gateway in the upstairs hall and the occult syndicate who want it for themselves. As the current owner, the scryer witch is supposed to have that under control. But when the woman turns up dead, Jessica’s employment contract now says she’s the one tasked with this lethal responsibility.
Jessica has no idea what she’s doing…and the bank won’t let her leave. As she deals with magical clientele who know the stakes far better than she does, Jessica must decide just how far she’s willing to go to keep this job. Because if she doesn’t, she’ll end up as dead as the body in the lobby. Or worse.
Ilona Andrews’ Innkeeper Chronicles meets The Magicians in this snarky, fast-paced Urban Fantasy Adventure from International Bestselling Author Kathrin Hutson.
River Runs Red
River Runs Red blends unforgettable characters with horror on a truly epic scale.
The growl came again, at the same time that his dad crawled out from under the leaning rock. The man pawed at the ground, his fingers cutting deep furrows in the hard-packed earth there. When he shook his head, foam and spittle flew in every direction. He stared at them with one eye—the other had been brutalized, liquefied somehow, a hellish soup of blood and eye goop and sweat mixing on what remained of his cheek—and although Wade could tell it was his father, he looked more like a wild thing, a monster, than anything human. The clothing that had been perfectly fine an hour ago had turned into rags and ribbons, barely concealing his skin.
And he was strong. He had not only moved the big leaning rock, but his fists closed around smaller stones and pulverized them. He crept toward them on all fours, as if he had forgotten how to walk upright.
Finally, for the first time, he spoke words that Wade could understand. “Wade,” he said. “Help…”
As teenagers, Molly, Byrd, and Wade faced inconceivable evil in an underground labyrinth on the banks of the Rio Grande.
Reunited as adults, they discover that their terrifying experience was only the beginning.
Their paths wend through raging rivers, mysterious murders, long-buried gods, and secrets worth dying—or killing—for, on the way to a final, mystical battle, with the fate of worlds hanging in the balance.

The world is on edge, threat chatter is way up, and enemies are on the move in Kirk Russell’s powerful third installment in the Paul Grale thriller series.
FBI bomb tech Paul Grale isn’t a computer expert, but he knows trouble when he sees it. Independence Base, a new top-secret military facility north of Las Vegas, houses a breakthrough artificial intelligence that has US enemies worried and on the move. Threat chatter is already way up when a known terrorist bomber—and Grale’s archnemesis—slips past border security. Then two of Independence Base’s star computer coders go missing. Were they kidnapped as part of a terror plot? Or did they quit in protest, taking their vast knowledge of the potentially dangerous AI code with them?
Special Agent Grale still grapples with the injuries sustained clearing IEDs in Iraq years ago. He’s managed the pain with exercise and over-the-counter drugs for years, but it’s getting worse. People at the office are beginning to talk. When he’s accused by a crooked pharmacist of illicit use of painkillers, he finds himself isolated and facing an uncertain future. Possibly, the end of his career. But first, Grale must push through the pain long enough to thwart an attack . . . as a terror team waits for the right moment to strike.
No Hesitation, the latest book in the Paul Grale thriller series, is a slow burn of page-turning action until its explosive conclusion.
