"Dark Child (The Awakening)," by Adina West

The first installment in a unique series from Adina West is a free download, and worth checking out for an intriguing introduction to this urban paranormal fantasy. (Follow-up episodes are available through the cover links at the end of this post.)

Dark Child (The Awakening): Episode 1: The Awakening, by Adina West
Price: $0.00
67 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 33 reviews

"In a market currently flooded by TV series, films and books about vampires, warlocks and werewolves, it is relatively easy to dismiss out of hand any new paranormal book as unoriginal. But Adina West's novel, Dark Child, is happily refreshing with just enough simmering tension to keep the pages turning over and over until the end and leave you wanting for more. Every paranormal story tends to have its own unique lore and customs -- but here, they seem extremely well thought out and coherent. Hints of what might be are both alluring and intriguing and the juxtaposition between realities is artfully contrived. I also particularly liked the small touches that demonstrated the author's extensive research throughout the book; like the wild ramps (a leek from the Appalachian area in the West Virginia and a member of the garlic family.)" -- Amazon reviewer

Perfect for fans of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this intriguing urban fantasy follows the story of Kat Chanter, who discovers that the world she knows is controlled by ancient creatures who feed on blood. And she might just be one of them ...

Kat can run a marathon without breaking a sweat. Catch anything you throw at her. Differentiate blood types by smell alone. And she's spent years hiding the fact. But secrets from the past have a way of slipping out when least expected, and a simple blood test is enough to turn her quiet life in the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains upside down forever.

Kat's been craving raw meat. When she visits a psychic she's told her life is about to change forever. Kat isn't so sure change is a part of her plan, but when a fabulous job offer to work for a research organization comes her way, she's tempted to say yes and make the move to New York. It just might be her chance to find out if there are others in the world like her ...

Will her dream job bring answers to her questions or will it lead her into more trouble than she could ever imagine?

This is a novella length episode of Dark Child (The Awakening)*, first in the Dark Child series. All five episodes are also available bundled as Dark Child (The Awakening): Omnibus Edition. Look out for the next in this series, Dark Child (Covens Rising) available for pre-order soon.

*Dark Child (The Awakening) was originally published in 2013 as Dark Child Episodes 1-5 and Dark Child Omnibus Edition.

Adina West grew up surrounded by trees, on a remote property on Australia's east coast, in country New South Wales.

"As a child, I was never afraid of the dark," she says. "The night, for me, was filled with infinite possibility."

Adina is from a large family, and she remembers how she and her siblings would come running when their mother took a loaf of her homemade bread out of the oven. "The pine kneading board my mother uses to make bread was brought to Australia by my European grandmother when she emigrated. We'd often finish the whole loaf while it was still warm. And we always fought over the crust, because it was crispy. It was the best bit."

Adina wrote her first story at age eight. "I typed it up on my parents' old typewriter," she says. "I always knew I wanted to write stories."

Though her subject matter may have matured, that desire has remained unchanged.

Adina spent most of her childhood curled up with a book, and her first teenage job was shelving books at the local library, where she was cautioned more than once for reading them instead of putting them away.

Now, Adina lives in Sydney's leafy north-west with her IT guru husband, two children, and a couple of unwelcome possums who really don't know how to take a hint.

Some random facts about Adina in no particular order:

* She occasionally drinks tea and coffee to be polite, but prefers rooibos. Or hot chocolate. Or chai (which doesn't make much sense, because it has tea in it)
* At age nineteen she spent a memorable day wearing full Japanese kimono, including zōri (traditional sandals) and tabi (toe socks). They're really not as comfortable as they look.
* She spent some years learning to speak (and write) languages like Japanese, Chinese and French. Unfortunately, that was so long ago she's forgotten everything she learned. Though she still speaks French food. And can order at yum cha.
* She has a weakness for dahlias and old fashioned roses.

Nine Lives (Sam Archer 1), by Tom Barber. (Still free?)

" Nine Lives was a fast and fun read and I finished it in just a few sessions. I recommend it for fans of action-based police stories. I borrowed this book from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. I already own his next two books in the Sam Archer series and I am looking forward to reading them." -- Amazon reviewer

It's New Year's Eve. A major terrorist cell is planning a series of attacks across London over the next forty-eight hours. The government has surveillance on the group, a man undercover, and prepare to move in, to take out the terrorists before they can strike. But they lose contact with their inside man. And the cell vanishes into thin air, dispersing into the streets, armed and intent on completing their assault on London. The best Counter-Terrorist teams in the country are told to take them down before it's too late.
Nine terrorists.

Nine lives.

The Armed Response Unit is one of these teams. Efficient and ruthless, the task force is ordered to locate the leader of the cell. As they hunt him down, they begin to realise that this is far bigger than any of them could ever have imagined. Bombings, rocket attacks, betrayal and a series of unexpected and shocking twists leave the ARU fighting to stay alive.

There's Archer, the youngest member of the team, keen to prove himself and justify his spot on the task force. His best friend, Chalky, who is forced to fight both the terrorists and his own demons. Porter, Deakins and Fox, tough and experienced men who've never dealt with anything of this magnitude. And Mac, their sergeant, who must make the quickest of decisions and lead his men against the invisible enemy.

As events unfold, other people are drawn into the danger. The Prime Minister, desperately trying to find a solution and protect the capital. A mysterious female Mossad agent, who appears out of nowhere and joins the fight against the cell. Two Special Agents from the DEA, one of whom was a member of the SEAL team that stormed Osama Bin Laden's compound and who for some reason is struggling with the memory. And the vicious, powerful leader of a Middle Eastern drug cartel, who operates in the shadows and is somehow connected to the terrorists.

With crowds all over London celebrating the New Year, and with nine terrorists somewhere amongst them, the Armed Response Unit is faced with the most dangerous night of their lives. As the savage, shocking plans of the enemy are fully revealed, the ARU officers are faced with the ultimate question. 

How many times can a man cheat Death before Death evens the score?

Urbino, Unexpectedly: a story of love and self-discovery, by Maria Chiara Marsciani. (Still 3.99?)

"Urbino, Unexpectedly is very much a journey of self discovery, but Clara is not alone. The skill of Maria Chiara Marsciani ensures that the reader accompanies her, and supports her, every inch of the way. A lovely book which I heartily recommend." -- Charles Derek Bray

One year. One love. One life.

Can love really help us to find out who we truly are, or is it just an out-of-fashion statement?

Urbino, Unexpectedly, is a journey of self-discovery through the power of love, the complexity of a mother-daughter relationship, friendship, and the need to follow one's own dreams. It is set in Italy between the frivolous Adriatic coast, the backcountry's romantic hamlets, the Alps, foggy Milan, and colorful Rome.

Clara is twenty-two; she studies in Milan and is about to become a lawyer. From the outside, everything is exactly as it is supposed to be, but Clara is unhappy. She finds Milan depressing, she hates law school and, anywhere she goes, she feels "like a fish out of water." Embracing her parents' values has trapped her in a life she neither likes nor understands. Her father is a famous surgeon and a reserved, pragmatic man whom she fears; her mother is a well-connected, flamboyant socialite used to supervising and influencing Clara's every move; her roommates are often a source of trouble and, her grandma, who lives upstairs in the family's home, is Clara's only confidant. In Urbino, she meets Leonardo, a young doctor who lives in Rome, and from their first handshake, her destiny is changed forever. Their immediate mental connection crumbles the rules of her black-and-white world and their powerful physical passion shows her the many colors of life. But this is only the beginning.

Clara's newfound confidence and the decisions that come with it trigger unforeseen conflicts with her mother and bring to the surface deep-rooted jealousy that force her to redefine not only the relationships with her parents, but also the meaning of true friendship. Clara is faced with the dilemma of having to choose between her own happiness and the peace of mind of the people around her. She has to understand if spreading her wings and living life her own way it is more important than the reassuring feeling of being a 'good girl' who always behaves.

Married To A Vegan: Is It For Better Or For Worse When A Spouse Embraces Healthy Living And A Plant-Based Low-Fat Diet?, by Caren Albers. (Still free?)

"Loved it! As a fairly new vegan who is married to a carnivore, I found this book to be a short and sweet look at my lifestyle from the other point of view. I found that I have a lot in common with her husband, and also with her as she reacts to the changes in him. The author has a warm conversational style and a great sense of humor, starting with the eye- catching cover!" -- Amazon reviewer

In her wedding vows, she promised "for better or for worse." She also promised "to obey" but that wasn't likely to happen. Her "for worse" arrived when her husband of thirty-plus years retired from working and adopted a healthy lifestyle, that included eating a strict, plant based, low-fat, vegan diet.

The "for better or worse" clause in their wedding vows was about to get tested.

Caren knew of Dean Ornish, a Harvard trained physician, whose research proved a low-fat, vegetarian diet paired with healthy lifestyle changes could actually reverse the effects of disease. She'd seen former president Bill Clinton interviewed on Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports: The Last Heart Attack touting the health benefits of his conversion to a whole food, plant-based diet. But when her husband of thirty-plus years decided to try Dr. Neal Barnard's 21- day weight loss kickstart (a low-fat, vegan diet), a part of her wanted to kickstart him to the curb.

Suffering for years with painful gout flares, high cholesterol, and elevated blood pressure, he was determined to turn his life around and get healthy, apparently, whether she liked it or not.

This book offers insights written from three perspectives. MY STORY shares the humorous tale of how his conversion took their marriage from magic to mayhem. HIS STORY offers the scientific reasons to embrace a plant based diet and his own amazing results. OUR STORY shows the evolution of a couple finding their way together in a new world.

Although not a vegan cookbook, several delicious recipes are included that will delight vegan lovers, leaners, the vegan curious, or just about anyone. You'll laugh, and learn new ways to live a healthier, happier, life!

"When someone decides to make the lifestyle change and take on a vegan diet, their spouse inevitably comes along for the ride. Married to a Vegan tells the story of one wife's experience as her husband made the switch and took control of his health. As you will see, it becomes a positive, powerful experience for both of them. I am honored to have played a role in inspiring this story, and wish all the best to Caren and her husband, as well as any others who pursue a plant-based diet. For those who do, a happier, healthier future is in store." -- NEAL BARNARD, M.D., President, Physicans Committee for Responsible Medicine, and New York Times-bestselling author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart.

Married to a Vegan is for anyone who likes to laugh as they learn new ways to live a healthier, happier life.
