The Gilded Lynx by Leah Erickson (9MM Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by LeahJE (author): Hello! I'm giving out free e-book copies in the hopes that I can gather Amazon reviews, which enable me to better promote my new title! Goodreads is wonderful, too. Thank you in advance!

Description: From the award-winning author of the best-selling "The Brambles" comes a new dystopian urban fantasy novel.

Daphne is a fourteen-year-old girl who leads a life of wealth and privilege but also great loneliness. She is the daughter of the CEO of a biotech mega-company who has gone missing, and a beautiful but failed movie star of a mother. Her wish to escape her little bubble and explore the outside world becomes true when her life gets torn apart in a rash of violent riots and The Sickness, as the downtrodden rise up against the privileged and the dead pile up. Homeless and on the run, she navigates this new world and tries to uncover the true nature of her father’s company.
A coming of age story in a dark future.

"The Gilded Lynx by Leah Erickson is a breathtaking tale about maturation, civil unrest, and corruption. The author shows us dreamy scenes with abhorrent excess before taking us to the gritty streets. Think of The Secret Garden with rhinestoned gas masks, and you’ll have an accurate idea of The Gilded Linx. It’s lovely in its ugliness."
—Mercedes Murdock Yardley, Stoker Award winning author of Little Red Dead, Nameless: The Darkness Comes, and Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy.

"It's incredibly smart, accessible...it addresses fascinating issues. Not only issues that are uncommon to young adult fiction, but issues that are rarely discussed in fiction period." —Benoit Lelievre, Dead End Follies

It’s a tale of fantastical beasts, peculiar characters, remarkable settings, and a unique brand of biochemistry-based magic. A story that focuses on meaningful character interactions, delicate world building, and intense action battles.

She emerged within a dark sea of green, shielding her eyes against the crescent moon’s pale blaze. The twinkling stars hummed softly, discordant against the chattering birds below. The lush leaves rippled in the breeze, tempting Fi to dip her toes in for a swim. The wind blew at her back and she turned east to face it. The fresh air carried the salty spray of the Shimmering Sea. Although she could not see it, she knew it was right there. Her ears caught the distant waves crashing against the shore. One last step. She thought.

All Our Heroes Are Ghosts by Connor Frost

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Connorfrost (author): Review copies available in epub, mobi, and/or pdf.

Description: An adventure set in the aftermath of an ancient war.

The great city of Tyria has fallen. The King has been murdered and the Queen abducted by the brutal invaders. The survivors face a bleak existence, but they hold out hope. A whispered hope that somehow the heir to the throne survived, and that one day he will return to raise Tyria up from the ashes.

After Marcus makes a miraculous escape from the island prison that holds Tyrian’s taken children, some believe that he is the lost heir to Tyria’s toppled throne. To prove himself, Marcus will need to unravel the mystery of what really happened when Tyria fell—and only the Queen can give him the answers.

Marcus sets off with a band of Tyrian soldiers and their charismatic leader, Hedj Marea, to rescue the Queen from the treacherous land of the invaders. The journey will demand all of their courage and their wits, as they masquerade as the escort for a reluctant princess on the way to her arranged marriage.

If Marcus succeeds, he will rescue his mother the Queen and provide hope to a desperate people. But if he fails, Marcus will die an imposter.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other titles to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: A mystery novel, but also a satire of religious mystery novels (ie. if you are offended by mild profanity or an irreverent rabbi, please do not request.)

From the jacket:
Two elderly spinster sisters––Florence and Lorraine––have lived together ever since the death of their wealthy father, living on generous stipends provided in his will that continue until one of them marries––at which time that sister is cut off financially. The sisters’ family is shaken up when Florence invites them to her wedding. The morning after the wedding, Florence is found dead in her bed. Was it an asthma attack as her new husband and the police believe or did someone enter her room in the middle of the night and suffocate the old woman with a pillow? Local amateur sleuth Rabbi Jacob Kappelmacher is brought in to investigate the suspicious death. He soon discovers that all of the sisters’ relatives stayed overnight following the wedding and could have strangled the old woman in her sleep. So could have the bridegroom. But who did it? And why? With no money and no motive, why would anyone kill the old woman? Rabbi Kappelmacher begins his investigation by interviewing all of the interested parties, intent on figuring out the convoluted and devious crime––and the sinister culprit behind it.

Live Soldier by Liam Clay

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by LiamClay (author): Hello reader! I would like to give you a free digital copy of my novel Live Soldier in return for an honest Amazon review, which you can leave here: https://amzn.to/2FRzhDh

Description: I wasn't always a marine with a government camera in my eye...

Before they hacked my head, stole my daughter and sent me to war, I sold drugs to plastic celebrities in the clouds. Not the most honest of professions, I know. But this world is broken, and although my city presents a glittering face to the ruins, surviving here is dirty work.

Far below the movie sets, the gene editing labs and the body mod studios, another city exists. A place of flooded streets and tainted air. You wouldn’t want to live there - none of us do. So can you blame me for burning my morals in return for a glimpse of the sun? Sure, it was far from perfect, but nothing is these days.

Then I made a mistake. Crashed the wrong party, sold a good time to bad people, implicated myself in a terrorist attack on an A-list star. And the violence didn’t end there. Now the poor have been accused of massacring the rich, and to atone for our supposed sins, we are being trained for battle.

The task ahead of us sounds insane. Infiltrate the island stronghold of the planet’s most advanced post-human scientist. Learn its weaknesses, and lead an army to conquer it.

Insane? Scratch that, it sounds like suicide.

Except for one thing. That scientist is known as the Designer, and I was one of his first creations…

"Combining elements of military, cyberpunk and apocalyptic science fiction, Live Soldier is a fast paced ride through a damaged but fascinating near-future world. Fans of Red Rising, Snow Crash and Murderbot will be entertained."

He’ll cheat, bluff, and steal to get his revenge, and as one of V.G.O.’s immortal travelers, he’s willing to die trying.

Everyone wants to lose tons of weight fast. And I’ll show you exactly how I used a Keto diet to cut nearly half my bodyweight in less than a year, as you can see in my author profile pictures. But what’s the point if you can’t keep it off? I don’t know about you, but I tried dozens of fad diets and supposedly “guaranteed programs” without lasting results. I wasn’t able to turn my entire life around until I learned how to adopt a sustainable and fun ketonic lifestyle. That’s precisely what I want to share with you. And the best news of all is that this lifestyle doesn't have to be complicated nor expensive.

This is not high-level theory about “getting healthy” or generic motivational rah rah talk. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and learn the nitty gritty details of how to implement, sustain and enjoy a Keto diet forever, no matter what life throws at you.

I’ll show you how to:

Plan a Keto diet on a small budget that costs less than you’re currently spending on food.

Create your meals and snacks in minutes so you’ll be spending even less time in the kitchen than you do now.

Convert your favorite recipes into sugar-free variants without sacrificing flavor or texture.

Become a sugar detective and discover hidden sugars and empty carbs in any food in a matter of seconds.

Stay disciplined yet flexible when eating out and guarantee your meal has no sugar or excess carbs in it with a few simple tweaks to your order.

Make your Keto diet work around allergies and other medical conditions.

Includes over 100 delicious but cheap, fast and never-before-published low carb and sugar-free recipes to inspire your imagination. All are designed for normal people who work for a living and can’t spend hours in the kitchen every day nor hundreds of dollars on fancy ingredients.

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please be able to leave a review on this book if you request a review copy.

Description: Is conversational Italian turning a little too tricky for you?

Do you have no idea how to order a meal or book a room at a hotel?

If your answer to any of the previous questions was ‘Yes’, then this book is for you!

If there’s even been something tougher than learning the grammar rules of a new language, it’s finding the way to speak with other people in that tongue. Any student knows this – we can try our best at practicing, but you always want to avoid making embarrassing mistakes or not getting your message through correctly.

‘How do I get out of this situation?’ many students ask themselves, to no avail, but no answer is forthcoming.
Until now.

We have compiled MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED conversational Italian stories for Beginners along with their translations, allowing new Italian speakers to have the necessary tools to begin studying how to set a meeting, rent a car or tell a doctor that they don’t feel well. We’re not wasting time here with conversations that don’t go anywhere: if you want to know how to solve problems (while learning a ton of Italian along the way, obviously), this book is for you!

How Conversational Italian Dialogues works:

• Each new chapter will have a fresh, new story between two people who wish to solve a common, day-to-day issue that you will surely encounter in real life.
• An Italian version of the conversation will take place first, followed by an English translation. This ensures that you fully understood just what it was that they were saying.
• Before and after the main section of the book, we shall provide you with an introduction and conclusion that will offer you important strategies, tips and tricks to allow you to get the absolute most out of this learning material.
• That’s about it! Simple, useful and incredibly helpful; you will NOT need another conversational Italian book once you have begun reading and studying this one!

We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles!

So look no further! Pick up your copy of Conversational Italian Dialogues and start learning Italian right now!

Vigilantes and the Media: 8 Horrific True Crime Stories of Vigilantes by Ryan Becker (Sea Vision Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by RyanBecker (publisher): Hi everyone,

This is my book in my true crime series called "Murder for Justice" I am giving away some free copies for those of you who love true crime stories. It is a short book so it will be a quick horrific experience. Warning: graphic content

Grab a copy, if this is your cup of tea.

Thank you,
Ryan

Description: Have you ever imagined the life of a vigilante to be exciting?
Do you see them as righters of wrongs and seekers of justice?
Or are they something more sinister?
Vigilantes occupy a curious space in our collective psyche. On one hand, they are seen as
almost modern knights, seeking truth and justice where the law has failed, while on the other
they are no better than the criminals they seek, operating outside of normal societal
conventions.
In this book, Vigilantes and the Media: 8 Horrific True Crime Stories of Vigilantes, we
examine the lives of real vigilantes who often had their own agendas, like:
 Manuel Pardo Jr, who killed drug dealers and other criminals
 Pedro Filho who tackled Brazil’s murderers and rapists with a ruthless brutality
 Patrick Drum, who killed pedophiles for fun
 Bernard Goetz who became tired of New York’s subway muggers and exacted his
own revenge
 Barry Gilton and Lupe Mercado who took revenge on a gang only for their own
sordid lives to be revealed
Each of the cases examined is true and each one of the vigilantes portrayed has their own
shocking secret and motive behind their actions.
Read on and be amazed at how these people took the law into their own hands, often for the
most spurious of reasons and often for their own gain as well.

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M. Appel (The Permanant Press)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other titles to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: On the outside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a pillar of the community: the youngest division chief at his hospital, a model son to his elderly parents, fiercely devoted to his wife and two young daughters. On the inside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a high-functioning sociopath—a man who truly believes himself to stand above the ethical norms of society. As long as life treats him well, Balint has no cause to harm others. When life treats him poorly, he reveals the depths of his cold-blooded depravity.

At a cultural moment when the media bombards us with images of so-called sociopaths who strive for good and criminals redeemed by repentance,The Mask of Sanity offers an antidote to implausible tales of evil gone right. In contrast to fictional predecessors like Dostoyevesky's Raskolnikov and Camus' Mersault, Dr. Balint is a man who already has it all —and will do everything in his power, no matter how immoral, to keep what he has.

Against all logic the machine end up working and Abraham finds out that the god is dead, and that Yahweh in his suicide letter was kind enough to leave the schematics for the mind control chip he used to convince Bronze Age humans that he was a god.
Having these schematics Abraham sets his mind to a new project: t create an artificial Bronze Age world where he can be "god" over it's inhabitants. Along the way he faces many highly amusing scenarios such as problem with the henchmen union, unfortunate calendar mistakes, malfunctioning orbital super weapons etc. Abraham keeps fucking up things due to his dementia, villainy, incompetent henchmen, and general stupidity until a mentally ill woman shows up out of nowhere and puts an end to Abraham's follies!

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by MLundqvist (author): Audiobook is a digital download and is given away by author of the book.

Description: Audiobook, digital download.

Keila is the perfect revolutionary:
Lacking things like intelligence, sanity or common sense,
She has something far more important: plot armor and the telepathic help of Rangda, the evil space demon!
It’s the year 2872 and the young, beautiful, and utterly insane Keila Eisenstein is on the run from her long-time stalker, Rear Admiral Bjorn Muller. Escaping him for the umpteenth time, Keila crashes down on the asteroid colony Eden, most famous for the long running reality show “The Bronze Age Fools”
Convinced that Eden is her destiny, Keila kills “The Bronze Age Fools” unwitting main star Abraham Goldstein, which forces the show to cancel. Keila then fakes her own death by deleting her social media account and instructs her lover Metatron to release a press release blaming the cancellation of the show on Bjorn Muller.
Bjorn, who is convinced that Keila is dead, as he can’t imaging her willingly deleting her SpaceBook account, goes back to Earth for a holiday. The holiday is ruined as Bjorn is blamed for causing the cancellation of everyone’s favourite show!
Being “dead”, Keila builds up a revolutionary movement against the ruling Terran Council.

Despite her lack of intelligence or common sense, her plot armour is leading her on the way, and with the help from the evil space demon Rangda, she is poised to free humanity from the oppression of the incompetent array of villains that make up the Terran Council.
But, is relying on an evil space demon to free humanity from a group of plutocratic oppressors really a good idea?

The Liars' Asylum by Jacob M. Appel (Black Lawrence Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other titles to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: LITERARY SHORT STORY COLLECTION: The frustrations of romantic love in its various guises—a domineering kindergarten teacher for a dashing artificial foliage designer, a suicidal physicist for his star student, a dialysis patient at a sleep-away camp for the camp owner’s daughter—provide the common theme for the stories in Jacob M. Appel’s seventh collection. We meet a psychiatrist dabbling with infidelity during a crisis in which rain turns into truth serum, a Finnish-American soldier charged with facilitating his commanding officer’s extra-marital affair, and a couple transporting a wealthy, “locked-in” patient across the Piedmont to his new nursing home. Appel’s literary short fiction offers a quirky window into the pangs and promise of love.

Atoma and the Blockchain Game by Gerard O'Neill (Gerard O'Neill Books)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Description: In 2050 Earth Inc. controls every aspect of life on the frozen planet that's at the tail end of a Mini Ice Age.

On my 16th birthday, I have my Citizen Celebration Day just like everyone in my class of Space Engineers. I am not looking forward to it, and as it happens I don't have to. The world as I know it comes to a shattering end when our air-shuttle crashes and I awake in hospital.

The AI treating me announces my DNA is banned. Then, my mother tells me about my biohack that she hid from the state as well as from me.

Not that any of that matters anymore. I am not a citizen. I have no rights. I'm a Zero.

When Earth Inc. catches up with the two of us, they give me a choice. A labor camp, where I am worked to death within a few short years, or I train with other Zeros at a secretive research base for a high-risk expedition?

I have to discover why I was made a Zero. I have to live and that means surviving the mission.

Description: Friendship between a talented young artist and her handsome French neighbor is a promising start—until it’s not enough.

April promised her dying father she would study painting in Paris, but friends are few, her budget is tight, and her landlord increasingly won’t take "no" for an answer. Then she meets Victor.

Victor is as chivalrous as he is wealthy, and if it weren't for him, April would have already left the City of Light behind. Too bad Victor still has eyes for his ex-girlfriend, who is now back on the scene and wants to get married.

Although April and Victor swore to remain just friends, magical Paris seems to weave a different spell. The more their connection deepens, the more it becomes difficult to keep a proper distance. Or to remember why they should.

A clean & wholesome romance

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): This is a review copy of the E-book. Please only apply if you are able and intend to leave a review once you've read it.

Description: Finding material for your Spanish immersion can be a nightmare.

We know how you feel, and we’ve addressed it!

Spanish students regularly have to go through the toughest experiences to find proper reading material that isn’t too tough for them — as teachers, we know this.

This is why we’ve created Spanish Short Stories for Beginners to ensure that young and old students at the Beginner level can have yet another chance to immerse themselves into fun and interactive stories designer for you, the student.

Twenty easy-to-read, entertaining and interesting stories await inside, along with the best tools to help you practice once you’re done reading each tale. Our book will ensure you not only can read something that will expand your knowledge on Spanish but that you will understand and be able to pick it apart piece by piece in your quest for learning.

How Spanish Short Stories for Beginners works:

• Each story will involve an important lesson of the tools in the Spanish language (Nouns, Pronouns, Future Tense, Going Shopping, and more), involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
• The summaries follow: a synopsis in Spanish and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about.
• At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson, as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance!
• Finally, you’ll be provided with a set of tricky questions in Spanish, providing you with the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer to any — we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating!

Do you think you can handle it? If the answer is yes, then you’re definitely on your way to becoming a Spanish speaker, and we’ll certainly make that dream come true!

We recommend this book for Spanish learners at A2 level and above as it is designed for students with a basic understanding of Spanish.

So look no further! Pick up your copy of Spanish Short Stories for Beginners and start learning Spanish right now!

Offered by HTPubs (publisher): Publisher pre-release giveaway

Description: She’s lost everything and wants a new start. He can’t let go of his past… until he meets her. Although both are strong-willed, can they bend their will to the other and let go of the past to let love in?

Megan Shannon is no stranger to struggle. Having lost everything and everyone she ever held dear, she set out from her beloved Ireland to seek a new life in America. When her thirst for a new life lands her in the untamed frontier of Whiskey River, she finds that a free spirit has no merit in her new husband’s home. Emboldened by her desire to be her own woman, Megan clashes against the powerful men who would see her demure and silent.

For Dallas King, Whiskey River is not a safe haven for the bold and the brave, but rather a chance to rise as a powerful man of society. Having left behind a dark and twisted childhood, Dallas sets out to become the man his father wasn’t. In the pursuit of his narrow dream, Dallas finds himself at odds with the beautiful woman he has called to the frontier to be his wife.

An epic battle ensues between what one wants and what one expects as danger lurks close by. Will Megan and Dallas come to terms with their troubled pasts in pursuit of a perfect future? Or does Whiskey River have something entirely different in store for them?

In a battle of wills and wit, danger and desire take the reins as we return to the untamed banks of Whiskey River in The Banker’s Bride.

Description: Caught at the centre of a dramatic prophecy, the safety that Tierra has wrapped around herself for the last few decades of her long life has been shattered. On top of that, her long-standing crush on her best friend has turned into something she can no longer ignore. Always happier looking after others, she finds she needs to step out of her comfort zone, and fast. She’s a Master in both her energies - if she can just remember how to use them.

Fintan loves the thrill of danger, risk and battle. But the prophecy doesn’t just include him, it includes his friends - the only people he calls family. He’s ready to fight to protect them, but what he isn’t ready for is for the idea of Tierra in danger. A mysterious teenager seems to have the key to some of the prophecy’s secrets. Tierra is a lot better suited than Fintan to coaxing the information out of the frightened girl - but that’s going to put her smack in the middle of the fight.

Is Tierra brave enough to put herself front and centre in the conflict?

And is Fintan hero enough to let her?

The Game of VORs by Andrew Orange

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Andrew_Orange (author): Greetings!
My pen name is Andrew Orange.
Happy to send you my novel (mobi, epub, pdf, whatever you prefer).
P.S. Please, consider adding this book to your LibraryThing bookshelf.

Description: "The Game of VORs is gritty, tragic, and very emotional... a suspenseful, coming of age story in a dark world." — Readers' Favorite Five Stars

"I would recommend this to any person interested in twisted political discrepancies or learning about different takes on identity and morality." — LitPick

"What strikes me the most about this book is the quality of its dialogues: they feel authentic and add a sense of realness in a dystopian world." — Goodreads

"I read about the author and was surprised that this is his first book, because, as for me, it is written very well and talentedly, I hope this successful beginning will allow him to write even more books." — Goodreads

"Speaking of reader experience, I can only say that this was a high class read that I enjoyed greatly, and the translation is so skillful that it wasn’t at all clear that it was a translation at all.
I see that other reviewers have compared the book to some modern YA books; personally I found it was most highly comparable to Dune; a militaristic aristocracy, an ostensibly innocuous heir who will turn out to change everything, a feared outclass with paranormal abilities and their own set of rules, a harsh and unforgiving environmental setting — we were just missing the worms.
In short, the book exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend it on its own merit."
— Amazon

Kier Vorsmith, the youngest son of an influential count, dreams of studying at the University and living a quiet life as a historian.

At the will of his father, the young man arrives at a remote arctic base to serve as a local weatherman...

Guillermo and the Tetuan Bookshop by Leonard Flama

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) was one of the major conflicts of the 20th century, with repercussions that spread beyond its time and place, but not all its heroes were combatants. Guillermo's ideology ensured that he spent the entire war as a political prisoner - first in his native Tenerife, and subsequently in a labour camp near Tetuan, in what was then Spanish Morocco - thus pre-empting what would have been his natural inclination to volunteer to join the Republican army and fight against Franco's Nationalists. Embodying history, politics and socio-economics, this story shows how war affects ordinary people. It provides a vivid insight into both the everyday life of Tenerife and the exoticism of Tetuan, where the reader is immersed in the sights, sounds and aromas of the Medina. This is a modern historical novel that includes elements of courtroom drama, action thriller and romance, which will repay the engagement of a wide readership.

Displaced by Tony Halker

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Displaced people wander the lands, forced there by conflict and hunger, where they are used as agents of chaos.
Fertility is revered, children have value for work, in marriage and for worship. Technology supports an established order of control and government that is not consensual.
That order is threatened by new democratising technologies that give some power to ordinary people. Superstition, religion and ancestor beliefs have the power for good and or evil, inflicting pain or kindness and sometimes both.
Amongst this chaos pass two priests, Owayne and Nial, seeking to learn from and influence events. A mysterious helper, Bron, is with them. It is unclear whether he aids them or is simply there to watch and report their actions.
They love, make friends, struggle and fight, meeting decent peoples whose values and actions sometimes conflict with their own. They have to reconcile friendships and very different values.
These modern issues and events are played out in a landscape of our pre-history, one that we can see and touch today.
A tribal lord resists the march of progress, fighting for values that no longer resonate with his family or clan. Battles of mind, values and technologies occur.
Those who prevail ultimately determine the telling of history.

The Summer Country by Lauren Willig (HarperCollins)

Offered by WilliamMorrow (publisher): Enter for a chance to win a copy of this book from HarperCollins!

Description: The New York Times bestselling historical novelist delivers her biggest, boldest, and most ambitious novel yet—a sweeping Victorian epic of lost love, lies, jealousy, and rebellion set in colonial Barbados.

Barbados, 1854: Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous English merchant clan— merely a vicar’s daughter, and a reform-minded vicar’s daughter, at that. Everyone knows that the family’s lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin, Adam, one day. But when her grandfather dies, Emily receives an unexpected inheritance: Peverills, a sugar plantation in Barbados—a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned.

When Emily accompanies her cousin and his new wife to Barbados, she finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumors swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts.

Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins? Why are the neighboring plantation owners, the Davenants, so eager to acquire Peverills? The answer lies in the past— a tangled history of lies, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom.

A brilliant, multigenerational saga in the tradition of THE THORN BIRDS and NORTH AND SOUTH, THE SUMMER COUNTRY will beguile readers with its rendering of families, heartbreak, and the endurance of hope against all odds.

Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson (HarperCollins)

Offered by WilliamMorrow: Enter for a chance to win a copy of this book from HarperCollins!

Description: New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson—”an admired writer who deserves to be a household name” (Kirkus Reviews)—displays her masterful talent in this dark and deliciously addictive tale of domestic suspense.

In this game, even winning can be deadly...

Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with it—teaching diving lessons, baking cookies for new neighbors, helping her best friend, Charlotte, run their local book club. Her greatest joy is her family: her devoted professor husband, her spirited fifteen-year-old stepdaughter, her adorable infant son. And, of course, the steadfast and supportive Charlotte. But Amy’s sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious and alluring Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night.

Sultry and magnetic, Roux beguiles the group with her feral charm. She keeps the wine flowing and lures them into a game of spilling secrets. Everyone thinks it’s naughty, harmless fun. Only Amy knows better. Something wicked has come her way—a she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did.

When they’re alone, Roux tells her that if she doesn’t give her what she asks for, what she deserves, she’s going to make Amy pay for her sins. One way or another.

To protect herself and her family and save the life she’s built, Amy must beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets. Amy knows the consequences if she can’t beat Roux. What terrifies her is everything she could lose if she wins.

A diabolically entertaining tale of betrayal, deception, temptation, and love filled with dark twists leavened by Joshilyn Jackson’s trademark humor, Never Have I Ever explores what happens when the transgressions of our past come back with a vengeance.

None of the Above by Michael Cocchiarale (Unsolicited Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Unsolicitedpress (publisher): Unsolicited Press is a small publisher in Portland, OR and we offer free ebooks to readers who are willing to write reviews. We will send you an ebook that can be used on any device.

Description: None of the Above spans twenty seven years (1980-2007) of the life of Increase Alt, a fearful, introverted sort who does a poor job of paying attention to things that don’t directly affect his life. Throughout grade school, high school, and college, his energies become more and more directed toward his own pursuits—the study of literature, the attempt to secure a girlfriend, the forging and maintaining of relationships with his male peers. Events happening in the world, in the country, and in his hometown of Cleveland—a Reagan-Carter presidential debate, the Iran Contra scandal, the AIDS epidemic, the first Gulf War—become important only when they threaten to pull him out of his comfort zone. As a highly-educated adult, he returns to the town of his birth to discover he still has much to learn, as both personal trials and traumas in the country (and world) put his maturity to the test.

Foundation for a New Consciousness by John Caris (Westgate House)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by JCaris (author): Win a signed, first edition copy of John Caris’ “Foundation for a New Consciousness.”

Description: Guided by Hermes’ art, John Caris finds the path to a higher consciousness, one grounded in a holistic and alchemical matrix that encourages the growth of a healthy mind. All the arts—including music, art, and literature—are rooted in the sacred tradition and form the center of meditation. From ancient times the arts have conveyed mystical knowledge besides practical skills of their crafts. The treasure discovered on the golden path is paradoxical thinking, the key to a higher consciousness.

Offering the reader a dare, John Caris shines light on the path to cultivate a higher consciousness. Many examples selected from literature, philosophy, art, and music illustrate paradoxical thinking and its blossoming. Among those artists and philosophers discussed are Bela Bartok, M. C. Escher, Frank Herbert, Hermann Hesse, Carl Jung, Ursula Le Guin, Pablo Picasso, Plato, Tom Stoppard, and Edgar Varese. Some of the important ideas investigated include personal transformation, microcosm-macrocosm, gender duality, perceptual viewpoints, magic theater of the mind, intuitive use of signs, paradoxical thinking, sacred geometry, and continuing the quest.

Sessions - Predator vs. Shrink Who will survive? by B. J. Thompson (BJT Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by BJThompson (author): Offering free copies of Sessions to gain more exposure as an author and honest reviews on Amazon for this book.

Description: Would you sacrifice your soul to see into the mind of a serial killer for seven days?

Justice will be served, but never before like this.

Sessions, a mind-bending psychological noir, delves into the minds of two women as they go head-to-head in seven therapy sessions, taking the terms “treatment” and “killer” and flipping them on their heads.

Is there a real life family connection to the killer’s evil?
And if she has never been caught, is there someone infamous in her life who has?

The "Entity" marks its territory through the pastoral environs of Vermont; Mount Mansfield, a Burlington art gallery, a sugar maple farm and inside the psychiatrist’s office, housed within a majestic Victorian mansion eerily familiar to more than one soul.

This is not a police procedural, my friends...

~~~

Are you game to be a fly on this therapy wall?
Well, have a seat in the waiting room, won't you?
Your Sessions are about to begin…

~ If you like tales that leave you disturbed long after you read The End, read Sessions.
What have you got to lose but your mind? ~

The Pied Piper: Is John Piper and New Calvinism Destroying the Church? by Enoch Burke (Burke Publishing)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by christian2 (publisher): Free copies of this book are available to readers willing to post reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

Description: Heresy is “adherence to a religious opinion contrary to church dogma”. This book argues that John Piper’s doctrine of Christian hedonism is a novel invention, and one not found in any of the church’s historical affirmations of the faith.

Piper has largely popularised his doctrine among young people, preaching to tens of thousands at the annual Passion Conferences in Atlanta, Georgia. The author claims that many of these young people are unwilling and unable to make a thorough examination of what John Piper really believes.

The Pied Piper takes a close look at Piper’s doctrine, examining its antinomian and ecumenical flavour. It also traces the legacy of Piper’s teaching in those closest to him, his own family. New Calvinism’s influence on the wider church is also assessed, with a focus in particular on Northern Ireland, once described as “the last bastion of Christian truth in Europe. The book argues for a return to the sincerity of true faith, practical church discipline, and a pure gospel.

Author: Enoch Burke holds a first-class BA in History and Politics (NUI Galway), a Bachelor of Theological Studies, a Diploma in Music (RIAM) and is currently completing a Masters degree. He resides in Castlebar in the West of Ireland and has taught at second-level for 10 years.

Enoch is a past Auditor of the NUI Galway Christian Union and preaches and teaches in his local church. This is his first book.

Description: Written for beginner to semi-seasoned outdoor-enthusiasts, this book will not only teach you how to camp but show you what to expect, how to plan activities, and how to create traditions. The word “camping” inspires smiles in many people. Learn how to escape your daily life and create memorable family experiences in the woods.

The word “camping” inspires smiles in many people. My goal is to show you how to create memorable family experiences in the woods. First off, I’d like to thank you for buying this book. If you’re about to embark on your first camping trip then forge ahead and let me share what I’ve learned over the years. On the other hand, if you’ve camped a few times and are looking for tips on how to be more efficient and accomplished in your future trips, then read on. I always say knowledge weighs nothing. My hope is that you’ll find yourself better informed after reading this book.

About Montie:

Allow me to share a little about myself. As a graduate of North Carolina State University, my day job is mechanical engineering specializing in new product development. I was raised in Asheville, NC, where I earned my Eagle Scout award. Growing up, our home was located only a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so I had many blessed opportunities to spend time outside. My childhood was an exceptional gateway to outdoor adventure for an inquisitive kid with tons of time and a vivid imagination.

As an avid outdoor enthusiast, I’d say my happy place is being in the woods. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to camp in North Carolina, Virginia, and New Mexico. The trip to New Mexico was a ninety mile backpacking trip to Philmont, the famous Boy Scout reservation. These rich experiences have molded me into the man I am today.

My wife and I own land in the mountains near Hot Springs, NC, where we hope to build a cabin sometime over the next couple of years. Until then, Connie and I enjoy tent camping there several times a year.

During the final edit of this book, we camped near Blowing Rock, NC, and hiked the Profile Trail up Grandfather Mountain. What a glorious hike and memorable weekend enjoying tent camping just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

I have found that camping is a great way to enjoy nature while keeping your trips inexpensive. When you camp, you save money so you can spread your funds over more excursions and spend more time outdoors—which is a win-win for everybody involved! Just like everyone else who works nine-to-five, I struggle with my work life balance. Throw in family and responsibilities at home, you quickly realize you must carve out time to do what you enjoy.

This book covers a lot of skills and topics that apply to camping in your area and at different stages of life. Camping is a great experience for your family. Hopefully Family Camping (Montie's Guide to Camping, Book One) helps you escape your daily life and enjoy the outdoors!

World Enough (And Time) by Edmund Jorgensen (Inkwell & Often)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by edmundjorgensen (author): I'm the author of World Enough (And Time), and I'm running this giveaway to find early readers who might be willing to post an honest review.

Description: Back on Earth, a dying man has just left his fortune to a home for maltreated ferrets.

Normally Jeremiah Brown would not begrudge such luckless animals their windfall, but the man was his uncle, and the fortune was supposed to be his inheritance.

Furthermore, having already purchased a ticket for a luxury space-cruise "on expectation" of said inheritance, Jeremiah can no longer pay for said ticket.

And furthermore still, he is already on said cruise...

World Enough (And Time) is a sci-fi comedy of manners and errors, full of twists and turns.

If you enjoy the work of Douglas Adams—or have always longed for something inspired by P.G. Wodehouse or Kingsley Amis but set on, you know, a spaceship zipping through the void at an appreciable fraction of the speed of light—you should check it out.

Once Somadina discovers her sister is a pawn in a dangerous political game, the stakes rise for everyone, including an ancient organization of telepaths compelled to intervene. Both women are stronger than they realize, and they have ignited the wrath of a fanatic willing to kill anyone to alter his nation’s future.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): Paperback sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other books to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future. **You can only win one paperback copy of this book; thank you in advance for understanding**

Description: A mystery novel, but also a satire of religious mystery novels (ie. if you are offended by mild profanity or an irreverent rabbi, please do not request.)

From the jacket:
Two elderly spinster sisters––Florence and Lorraine––have lived together ever since the death of their wealthy father, living on generous stipends provided in his will that continue until one of them marries––at which time that sister is cut off financially. The sisters’ family is shaken up when Florence invites them to her wedding. The morning after the wedding, Florence is found dead in her bed. Was it an asthma attack as her new husband and the police believe or did someone enter her room in the middle of the night and suffocate the old woman with a pillow? Local amateur sleuth Rabbi Jacob Kappelmacher is brought in to investigate the suspicious death. He soon discovers that all of the sisters’ relatives stayed overnight following the wedding and could have strangled the old woman in her sleep. So could have the bridegroom. But who did it? And why? With no money and no motive, why would anyone kill the old woman? Rabbi Kappelmacher begins his investigation by interviewing all of the interested parties, intent on figuring out the convoluted and devious crime––and the sinister culprit behind it.

The Prairie by James Fenimore Cooper (Holt, Rinehart & Winston)

Chronologically The Prairie is the fifth and final installment of the Leatherstocking Tales, though it was published before The Pathfinder (1840) and The Deerslayer (1841). It depicts Natty in the final year of his life still proving helpful to people in distress on the American frontier.

Ten Kisses to Scandal by Vivienne Lorret (Avon)

Offered by Galina98: Downsizing

Description: The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. However, they never said anything about kissing a rake…
Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…
Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.
Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.
