FLAGSHIP

ISAAC HOOKE

$2.99

A military research vessel has disappeared on the fringes of known space.

Captain Jonathan Dallas, commodore of Battle Unit 72, dispatches his fleet to investigate.

At first the evidence points overwhelmingly to the involvement of another human faction—the Sino-Koreans, longtime enemies of the United Systems.

But when the unit is ambushed by a threat far worse, one that endangers not only the fleet but also all of humanity itself, Jonathan must somehow find the resources to fight back. It doesn’t help that the admiral of the Battle Group has orders that run to the contrary.

Cut off from Central Command and faced with impossible odds, can Jonathan overcome his demons to save humanity and, more importantly, can he save himself?

Flagship: where captains are made. Or broken.

Subterrestrial

Michael McBride

$3.49

An accident during the construction of a tunnel beneath the Bering Strait leads to the discovery of a network of caverns and evidence that hints at the survival of a primitive human species. Led by DARPA technologist Reinhard Thyssen, a team of experts from around the globe is dispatched into the subterranean maze to discover all they can before the caves completely flood.

Something lurks in the darkness, though…a creature that has evolved into a predator unlike any the world has ever known, and it’s up to the scientists to make sure that it never reaches the surface. If they can survive that long.

The Girl In Between

Laekan Zea Kemp

FREE

The Girl In Between by [Kemp, Laekan Zea]Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.

But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.

The Bite On The Line

Simon Cantan

FREE

Fantasy as fast as any thriller.

Clinging to the bar running along the front of the platform, Sergeant Osric has a lot of time to think about how he got there. About how he’s shooting through a forest on a rocket powered railcar. About how a grinning thief is clinging to the same bar beside him. Most of all, though, about how he’s heading for Bytarend; a town no-one has heard from in almost a hundred years. There has to be a reasonable explanation for their silence, after all. Osric tries to think of a reason that doesn’t end in his horrible death…

… he can’t come up with one.

The Bite on the Line is the first book in the Bytarend series. Fast-paced fantasy with plenty of humour along the way.
