Books Available July 5, 2012

Another "apology" (in quotation marks because I know that probably no one is that bothered about it!)....Yesterday I had only a few minutes in the morning, and unlike usually, had not even a minute in the rest of the day to come back to finish the list, with seeing people off at the airport, straight to a funeral, then straight into preparations for an important evening meeting.  Today it took more than twice as long, with having to go through yesterday's books as well.  It's getting a bit disheartening, I've been at it most of the day now. Anyway, I had to merge with the list I started yesterday, so please double-check the prices in case I missed one that's not free any more.

This may well be the longest list ever.  Enjoy!

America Rising
"America Rising is a novel for our times, a novel of audacity and hope, where “change you can believe in” is more than just a slogan. It is not a screed.

Lesson One: Revolution!

We Are Elephants
A post-apocalyptic thriller that is "a road story about teenage love, mutant dogs, an insane old hunter, feverish hallucinations, Middle America and the end of the world.

Everything is cold and barren. Fifteen-year-old Michael and his younger brother John are violently forced into the desolate frontier of Middle America—at first simply trying to stay alive. However, an act of goodwill deep within the Ohio wilderness sets off a chain of events that propels the brothers from state to state, trying to outrun a master-tracker who has become known only as The Huntsman."

Righteous Wrath Unit 000 -- Cyber/Drone War Unleashed

The Last Election
from review: " the events in this story centers around the final presidential election in the United States before the alleged end time of 2012. There is a lot of action and parts of it almost had an Indiana Jones feel, with archeology and ancient prophecies and mysteries. The plot was wonderful, but I really felt like the characters drove this story."

The Aztlan Project (1/3)
"A powerful thriller that tries to reveal the truth behind the Swine Flu outbreak. An exciting story mixing mystery, conspiracy and history."  

Pandora's Genes
"a post-holocaust romantic adventure novel set in the late 21st century. The world of Pandora's Genes and of its sequel, Pandora's Children ($2.92), is devastated after an oil-spill disaster has led to the end of civilization. Many animal and insect species are extinct or mutated, and there are no remnants of what we consider modern technology.  The spread of a deadly new disease that selectively kills women is the plot point that sets the story in motion."

The Wails of Mother Earth (Children of the Fall)
"There is no law. There is no morality. There is no peace. Compassion is a weakness, and Faith is insanity. Such is the world of Thomas Fremont. Struggling to survive in the desolate terrain of southwestern America, all he knows is violence and cruelty.  It has been ten years since the government abandoned the region, collapsing into anarchy. Ten years of pain and fear. In this land, Thomas is but a slave, pressed into serving at the whim of the occupation forces left over from the fall.  All he wants is peace and safety from the endless violence. But such blessings come with a price..."

Faith of the Unforgotten (Foundations of Hope Trilogy)
"For four hundred years, the Great Pulse Storms have made it impossible for electricity to exist on Earth. Now fifteen-year-old Rebekah Ann Smith has been placed at the forefront of a battle against an attacking lizard species. Can the Gifts given by God save them from the impending human desolation?"

Starts with end-of-world: "During the late twenty-second century, Earth had been plunged into a major ice age. Facing certain doom, civilizations worldwide were rapidly disintegrating as global temperatures dropped. The general population took to rioting in a desperate display of panic and fear. Blood was freely flowing in the streets and the value of life plummeted to near zero."  Follows on with resettling on other planets, so, sci-fi.

The Awakening
"The Awakening is a futuristic thriller with supernatural elements. Violet Kromer is a housekeeper in a ratty hotel who gets the opportunity of a lifetime when she does a favor to someone who belongs to a secret society. Samuel Simmons is an online college student majoring in homeland security whose biggest goal in life is to get laid. Through an unforeseen series of events, they end up on the same side of the fight to wake up a planet drowning in pollution, death, and destruction."

Scorched Dawn (Part 1 of Zombie Apocalypse Sci-Fi Series)
