New book.

Numenon (Bloodsong Series) by Sandy Nathan - $0.99

Thanks to Todd A Fonseca for the heads up!

My full review is below...

*************************

Leading Numenon, the largest and most powerful corporation on the Earth, Will Duane carries a secret. Haunted for years by the memory of his demanding and verbally abusive father, Will compensates by driving for ever greater success at all costs. Ethics, faithfulness, relationships, all take a back seat to his overriding lust for power. But the success he achieves leaves him empty. Forever stalked by a dark presence creating a pall over everything in his life, Will finds solace by retreating within himself by physically punishing his body through excessive exercise. Nearing exhaustion, something special happens. A heightened state of awareness occurs through a glowing column of light beginning at the base of his spine. Will achieves what mystics call - Kundalini - here he is safe; here is where he finds peace; here is where he finds answers.

From his lean-to in remote New Mexico, a Native American shaman-known by many names but by his followers as "grandfather"-senses the gathering of evil. It will be at the annual gathering of his spirit warriors, simply called "the meeting", where this darkness will descend and collide with grandfather's spiritual forces and the corporate power of Numenon.

In Numenon, national award winning author Sandy Nathan takes the reader through the parallel journeys of two very different worlds - that of corporate deals and greed juxtaposed with that of Native American Indians on the reservation. Alternating between these two realities, Nathan explores each of the characters histories - their lives, choices, and experiences which have led them to the present conditions. Nearing the spiritually charged ground where the meeting is to occur, each of the characters feel the intensity of what they are about to experience and each must choose their path forward.

This is the first book in the Bloodsong series by Nathan. Those expecting a tidy closure to all of the plot's elements will instead find a continuously building pressure cooker leading to a climatic meeting of forces to be resolved in future volumes. This is a very enjoyable read and those interested in mysticism and Native American Culture will thoroughly enjoy Numenon.
NATIONAL AWARD WINNER:
As an Advance Reading Copy, NUMENON won
USA BOOK NEWS' BEST BOOKS AWARD in VISIONARY FICTION &
THE NATIONAL INDIE EXCELLENCE AWARD FOR RELIGIOUS FICTION

Almost all of Cory's books are free; this is for Kindle-specific books new releases.

Oh! I forgot about that one! I did too! Yeah book 2 got almost romance genre like with all of the mis understandings. Now I'm thinking I did not get number 3

Naomi has wanted to do this for awhile, and she's very pleased that HMJ is finally available for free as an ebook.

She doesn't have a Kindle herself... yet

I hope this encourages other authors to follow the same path!

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed His Majesty's Dragon. I ended up finishing it the same day I started it, then read book 2 yesterday, now I just have to decide on finishing up the series or reading one of the many other titles on my backlog.

I think if the publishers see results (e.g., an uptick in sales in the other books in the series) then we'll probably see more of it. I think in most cases it's ultimately a publisher decision.

New book available.

Admiral's Ghost: Book One in the Onyalum Series by NB VanYoos - $0.80 [Science Fiction]

Quote:
From LA drug dealer to planetary hero of an alien world, the Universe must have a sense of humor. Tyler Jensen, an earthling lost in the cosmos, struggles to understand the technologically advanced world whose hero he has inadvertently become. Posing as the Supreme Commander of the planet's fleet, Tyler must quickly learn the murky alliances of the military to succeed against their neighboring enemy. Will Tyler's naiveté doom the warring world, or can he navigate the political trappings of the Admiral's world to conquer another? This is the first book in the Onyalum Series.
