I'm just going to nominate 3 books this time around and if any of them float to the top - awesome.

The Cornerstone - Nick Spalding ($2.49US at Smashwords)

Spoiler:
A great book will transport you to another world… literally, if you’re not careful. On a gloomy Thursday afternoon, Max Bloom enters his local library in a last ditch attempt to stave off an epic case of teenage boredom. Among the hushed stacks he discovers The Cornerstone - an ancient book tucked away on a dusty, forgotten shelf.


The Winds of Khalakovo - Bradley P. Beaulieu (Free at the moment at [pirate site])

Spoiler:
Among inhospitable and unforgiving seas stands Khalakovo, a mountainous archipelago of seven islands, its prominent eyrie stretching a thousand feet into the sky. Serviced by windships bearing goods and dignitaries, Khalakovo's eyrie stands at the crossroads of world trade. But all is not well in Khalakovo. Conflict has erupted between the ruling Landed, the indigenous Aramahn, and the fanatical Maharraht, and a wasting disease has grown rampant over the past decade. Now, Khalakovo is to play host to the Nine Dukes, a meeting which will weigh heavily upon Khalakovo's future. When an elemental spirit attacks an incoming windship, murdering the Grand Duke and his retinue, Prince Nikandr, heir to the scepter of Khalakovo, is tasked with finding the child prodigy believed to be behind the summoning. However, Nikandr discovers that the boy is an autistic savant who may hold the key to lifting the blight that has been sweeping the islands. Can the Dukes, thirsty for revenge, be held at bay? Can Khalakovo be saved? The elusive answer drifts upon the Winds of Khalakovo...


The Burning Sky (Halcyon Book 1) - J R Lewis ($0.99US at Smashwords)

Spoiler:
A massive explosion destroys the airfield, leaving Taziri Ohana as the only surviving pilot to help the marshals track down the criminals responsible. Flying the length and breadth of Marrakesh, she and Major Syfax Zidane discover a vast conspiracy of corrupt police officers, diplomats, industrialists, and politicians plotting to destroy the government.
