Friday Afternoon 03/08/13 – Five Free Kindle Books

A round of Ed’s Internet Stuff? Ok!

Did you ever play Sims? You probably have played at least one offshoot (if not more).

And, if you have turned the TV on in recent days, you may have even caught the commercial.
There is a new Sims release! Hooray!

Well, not so fast.
Turns out there is a little, teeny problem connecting to the servers to play SimCity.

It’s probably best for me not to tell you. Have a look at the opinion of those looking to play.
If you are a fan of the tongue-in-cheek Amazon reviews that happen from time to time…

Chances are, you’ll enjoy the SimCity ones.
Things got so bad for a while that Amazon had to stop selling the game altogether.

Ouch.
But, thanks to the gathering of angry mobs online, there will always be a way to come together…
And complain! Just like the founding fathers of the Internet had intended! :)

I hope you don’t have any complaints about my picks this afternoon. And guess what? If you do…
I have ways to pick your own free Kindle books! Enjoy!

Trapped

Genre : | Author : -

The darkness is still, silent. Jackee Maren’s heart pounds reverberating through her body as fear sears her veins. Someone’s coming. No way out. This time they will kill me. Her breath is short, her chest burns. Must run. Faster. Faster! Her eyes fly open, her heart still racing with blinding fear. Jackee breathes deeply with relief and stares at the ceiling desperately trying to calm herself. The same dream. Something, someone is watching . . . and waiting. A tragic car accident leaves beautiful, vibrant Jackee Maren completely paralyzed, able to move only her eyes. Jackee’s husband, Phil, is devastated and her two young boys left with nothing but a shell for a mother, but still, Jackee senses the foreboding of an evil presence and knows time is short. Slowly, Jackee learns to communicate with her physical therapist, Kevin, by blinking her eyes. As evidence comes to light that her car accident was no accident, Jackee knows she must expose the person who wants her dead before they get a second chance. While Jackee works to put all the clues together, she discovers she has the ability to sense the thoughts of others, but she hides this talent from everyone but her sons, not knowing who she can trust. By actively exercising her new psychic ability, Jackee finally learns who masterminded the accident but feels helpless to stop them from trying to kill her again. Slowly a plan forms to not only ensure her boys are safe forever, but to exact revenge on her would-be murderer. Jackee vows not to rest until this killer understands what it is to be TRAPPED!

Released (Highland Historical #4) (The MacKays)

Genre : Romance | Author : Kerrigan Byrne

She’s become a Banshee, screaming for vengeance…

The last thing Katriona remembers about her life is her violent death. Now, in order to rest, she must avenge her family, which means eliminating the last of the corrupt MacKay Lairds. But her Banshee scream doesn’t kill him, and the more she tries, the harder it becomes to resist the wicked temptation he poses.

He’s cursed for the crimes of another…

None of the many sins staining Laird Rory MacKay’s soul warrant the wailing Banshee in his bedroom. With a clan divided, an impending marriage, and whispers of a dark curse threatening the livelihood of his people, Rory doesn’t have the time – or the heart – to face the specter of the one woman he’s spent the last year trying to forget.

 

Incarnation: Wandering Stars Volume One

Genre : Fiction | Author : Jason Tesar

Since the ages before time was measured, the angelic races have existed. Unseen by our eyes, they move through creation, shaping our world, sustaining our existence, and battling demonic hordes. But the war is changing; the battle lines are expanding into new frontiers and the next epoch is emerging.

Seven hundred years after the first humans were exiled from their home, their descendants have pushed eastward into a prehistoric wilderness. In a land shrouded by mist and superstition, primitive tribes struggle to establish new civilizations, unaware that their world is about to change forever.

 

Burnt Offerings

Genre : Mystery & Thrillers | Author : Michael Lister

The scratch of a single match—spark, heat, chemical reaction, fire being born—and an intense thriller begins.

Terror reigns over the North Florida National Forest, the coastal town of Bayshore, and the barrier island of Pine Key—a fiery terror whose flame threatens to consume the whole world.

An exacting and methodical killer whose weapon is fire is working on his masterpiece, and only a wounded and scarred FDLE agent and a retired ritual crimes expert hiding from the world in a cabin in the woods have any hope of stopping him.

Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard von Bingen

Genre : Fiction / Biographical | Author : Mary Sharratt (Author)

A triumphant portrait of a resilient and courageous woman and the life she might have lived . . .

Skillfully interweaving historical fact with psychological insight and vivid imagination, Sharratt’s redemptive novel, Illuminations, brings to life one of the most extraordinary women of the Middle Ages: Hildegard von Bingen, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath.

Offered to the Church at the age of eight, Hildegard was entombed in a small room where she was expected to live out her days in silent submission as the handmaiden of a renowned but disturbed young nun, Jutta von Sponheim. Instead, Hildegard rejected Jutta’s masochistic piety and found comfort and grace in studying books, growing herbs, and rejoicing in her own secret visions of the divine. When Jutta died some thirty years later, Hildegard broke out of her prison with the heavenly calling to speak and write about her visions and to liberate her sisters and herself from the soul-destroying anchorage. Riveting and utterly unforgettable, Illuminations is a deeply moving portrayal of a woman willing to risk everything for what she believed.

“With elegance and sensitivity, Mary Sharratt rescues Hildegard von Bingen from the obscurity of legend, bringing to life the flesh-and-blood woman in all her conflict, faith, and unwavering tenacity. Illuminations is an astonishing revelation of a visionary leader willing to sacrifice everything to defend her beliefs in a dangerous time of oppression.”
—C. W. Gortner, author of The Confessions of Catherine de Medici
