Nature Survival, War, and other Hardship

Frozen Footprints
”"Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night." Eighteen-year-old twins Charlene and Max Perigard have grown up under the wealthy but tyrannical rule of their oil-tycoon grandfather. When Max disappears and a ransom note shows up, Charlene's world is shattered. She desperately tries to persuade her tight-fisted grandfather to pay, but the old man is convinced that Max is merely faking his kidnapping to extort money. Fearing the worst, Charlene determines to find her brother before it's too late. Her quest hurls her into a twisted, frigid world of snow and ice that leads to terror in an isolated cabin. Together the twins struggle for survival while enduring fierce trials of mind, body, and spirit. Devoid of all worldly comfort and consolation, will faith and hope be enough to get them through this chilling nightmare?”

Brother Enemy (Promise of Zion #4)
Youth. “Jerusalem of 1948 is a dangerous place for everyone, whether Jew, Arab, or British. Yet not even the threat of sniper attacks can keep the young Holocaust survivor from searching for his family—or what’s left of it. Dov’s growing involvement with the Haganah, a Jewish resistance movement, may be just the added help he needs to locate his brother, Natan, lost during the war.”

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

Cloudburst (An Art Jefferson Thriller)
Check price. Not free everywhere. By established author Ryne Douglas Pearson
”In Los Angeles, the president is killed in a brazen terrorist suicide attack. Halfway across the globe, an American airliner is hijacked by another group of Middle Eastern extremists and forced to make a brief stop in Libya. Events that are first seen as unconnected soon are proven to be part of an interconnected plan to strike at the heart of the United States.…”

The Twelfth Imam
”2011 Retailers Choice Award winner! As the apocalyptic leaders of Iran call for the annihilation of Israel and the U.S., CIA operative David Shirazi is sent into Tehran with one objective: use all means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program, without leaving American fingerprints and without triggering a regional war. At extreme personal risk, Shirazi executes his plan. A native Farsi speaker whose family escaped from Iran in 1979, he couldn’t be better prepared for the mission. But none of his training has prepared Shirazi for what will happen next. An obscure religious cleric is suddenly hailed throughout the region as the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. News of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders spreads like wildfire, as do rumors of a new and horrific war. With the prophecy of the Twelfth Imam seemingly fulfilled, Iran’s military prepares to strike Israel and bring about the End of Days. Shirazi must take action to save his country and the world, but the clock is ticking.”

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

Creators (A Prequel Novella to the Contributor Trilogy)
This is the prequel to the book, Contributor (Contributor Trilogy, book 1), which has been listed free before.
“When the imminent collapse of the world’s food system threatens to all but eradicate the human race, it’s up to nineteen-year-old Liang Zhang to determine which of his company’s employees will live and which will die. Liang and the other Job Creators have only weeks to choose which of their staff and families to move into the domes, the last refuges on the barren planet. Despite their best efforts, the Job Creators are unable to keep their selection project under wraps, spurring violent protests against the privileged few. Now, Liang must race: against starvation, against insurrection, and against his own conscience. “
