Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure

Are you looking for explosions, high-speed chases, rappelling down the sides of buildings, and generally everything that Tom Cruise does on a daily basis?  Then we're sure you're dying to get your hands on free and discounted ebooks in the Action and Adventure genre.  You've come to the right place.  All of our Action and Adventure authors that promote their ebooks want you to get their ebooks at the lowest price possible.  Always free or discounted!

 

Definition of "Action and Adventure Genre": You may ask yourself, how does an Action and Adventure ebook differ from a Thriller ebook?  Fair question.  They may seem similar, but the main aspect of an Action and Adventure ebook is the element of consistent physical danger as a main part of the storyline.  So, while our reference to Tom Cruise and, for instance, his Mission Impossible series was slightly tongue-in-cheek, those stories would actually fall into the Action and Adventure genre.  Another important aspect of the Action and Adventure genre is that the pace of the novel using action is actually just as important as character building and setting--which makes the genre differ from others in a significant fashion.

 

Some examples of Action and Adventure bestselling ebooks are James Patterson (most of his Alex Cross novels), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Tom Clancy (most of his Jack Ryan novels), and A.G. Riddle (The Atlantis Gene).

Crucifix:

A London flat nestled in a small cul-de-sac, a beautiful courtyard with bright shining sun, and as many books as he could read.

It was going to be quiet, calm, and… Oh wait, it’s actually thedemon apocalypse.

With incursions, hauntings, and poltergeists to take care of, Damian is one of the only priests his church can call on.

At least for now.

They did send a welcoming gift in the shape of a young trainee, Max, who may or may not know his head from his… Well, you get the point.

Will Damian, with the help of some friends along the way, be able to kick the slaying and start to save the souls of his attackers? Or will his red-eyed granny of a neighbor poison him with a pie first?

If his demon has anything to do with it, exorcisms will only be done in the most fashionable style.

Secrets and action await you as you follow Damian up his path from hell.

Renegade:

The church is so very needy.

Sitting at a Roman café waiting for a friend, Damian is starting to think that taking a van full of unconscious priests might not have been the best option.

Nonetheless, Damian has survived his first couple of weeks as a “Demon ” or whatever the church wants to call him.

Can his protégé settle into the life of a warrior priest? Max still fights his own personal demons but hopes for a better future with Damian as his guide.

Neither of the priests’ demons are terribly happy with their hosts. Can Astaroth modify Max's entertainment habits or Ravi change Damian's sense of fashion?

Good luck with that.

Danger will hit Damian hard in the face, and he will have to decide betweenfriendship andduty.

Damian never was very good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him…

Apostle:

A little gunpowder goes a long way.

Damian has to deal with secrets.Too many secrets...and one of them is about a Demon he knows personally.

What's a little blood between friends and enemies?

The demons are bitching and life must go on, right?

Good luck with that.

Those in charge have provided orders for Damian.

Except, Damian has never been good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him…

Upgrade:

It takes a man a while to walk in his shoes...

Damian is finishing up many things in his life, including Max's training - if they survive.

Should he continue to allow secrets to run his life?

The clues are starting to track back to some influential players, but where is the proof?

Not that Ravi, in Damian's mind, cares a wit about hard proof.

Those in charge have secrets, and perhaps it is time to find them out.

Except, Damian has never been good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him, will Heaven accept his decisions?

Scroll back to the top and click “Read for Free” or “Buy Now,” and kick back for a fun supernatural action-packed adventure that will have you yelling for the good guys and laughing at the arguments between Damian and his protégé.

Dust and Shadow: A Victorian Post-Apocalyptic Adventure (Forgotten Lands Book 1)

by Lindsey Pogue


#1 in Western Science Fiction, #1 in Historical Fantasy Fiction, #1 in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction, and #1 in Alternative History

No place on earth is untouched by the Shift.

It’s been two centuries since the boom of the Industrial Revolution sent the Victorian world into a devastating climatic shift. Now, chivalry is dead and the frills and frivolities of the romantic era are no more than a fading memory. And in Sagebrush Canyon, thirst rules, ignorance is power, and nothing is as it seems.

Jo has kept to the safety of her family’s farm, desperate to forget the horrific day that took her mother and left Jo battered and broken. But the marshal of Sagebrush is everywhere--he controls everything--and for years Jo has had to stomach the false pleasantries and knowing glint in the eyes of the man who killed her mother. When Jo discovers how deep the marshal’s seedy dealings run, she decides that fear will no longer keep her silent. But just when Jo plans to expose him for what he really is, the marshal plays a card of his own—his notoriously scandalous son, Clayton.

As Jo and Clayton are thrust together, lines become blurred, truths are revealed, and Jo must decide what she is willing to sacrifice in exchange for retribution.

Dust and Shadow is a post-apocalyptic love story and Victorian adventure set in the weather-ravaged, forgotten world of the American wild west. This richly imagined story, steeped with courageous, beautifully broken characters is the perfect read for Amy Harmon and Adrienne Young fans.

The Last Straw (Harry Starke Genesis Book 5)

by Blair Howard


Cassie Morgan was just 17 years old when she died at the hands of a sadistic killer.

Homicide Detective Harry Starke caught the case and he knew right from the beginning that it was going to be a bad one, and he was right. Too many clues, too many suspects, too many bodies and a police chief more interested in his career than justice for the victims. For Harry, it was the last straw, and it had been a long time coming.

"Mmmm. THAT'S how you do a murder mystery. Honestly, I don't think I've ever felt so satisfied at the end of mystery than I did after finishing The Last Straw by Blair Howard. It was like finishing a 7-course meal at a Michelin-rated restaurant. Now I just need an Irish coffee to sip while I think about the incredible meal i just savored. Buy this book, clear your schedule, park yourself in a comfortable chair and immerse yourself in this marvelous story. You'll thank me!" Amazon Reviewer.

At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

Ex-agent Eva Rae Thomas is on the run. She has done things she never knew she was capable of the past month while hunting for her kidnapped daughter.

Eva Rae has risked everything,

-her newfound love,

-her freedom.

Meanwhile, Miami is under attack. Hundreds of passengers in the Metrorail are exposed to a deadly nerve gas on a peaceful Monday morning. When Eva Rae Thomas sees her daughter on the surveillance footage from the attack, she knows it is no coincidence. But by the time she uncovers the chilling truth of how it is all connected, it might be too late.

What would you do if your brother was accused of a horrible crime, and you were certain he didn’t do it?

Life is not done throwing Eva Rae Thomas curveballs.

A phone call turns her life upside down – once again. The call is from her father, the man she hasn’t seen in thirty-six years, not since he kidnapped her sister in a supermarket.

Now, he is back in Florida, and he needs her help. Her younger brother – whom she didn’t know existed – has been arrested on Amelia Island. The boy is in a coma after being shot by an officer during the incident. But his father doesn’t believe the police, and he asks for Eva Rae’s help to prove it.

At the same time, a serial killer is planning one of the most horrific mass killings in history.

Will Eva Rae find it in her heart to help her father after what he did to her? Will facing him again set her free or pull her under?

What if a stranger tells you that she believes your child is about to be killed? What if that woman is an ex-FBI profiler with a disputable reputation?

Would you believe her?

Eva Rae Thomas is chasing down a vicious killer, but no one will believe he even exists. If there are no unexplained dead bodies or missing persons, then how can there be a killer on the loose?

They don’t understand that the perfect murder is the one that doesn’t look like murder.

Can Eva Rae convince local law enforcement to help her with this case before the killer strikes once more? Or will she have to take matters into her own hands – again?

Ghost Mortem: A Paranormal Cozy Mystery Romance (Ghost Detective Book 1)

by Jane Hinchey


Whoever said that ghosts exist must be out of their mind.

Oh, wait. That was me. I said that. If you’d told me yesterday that ghosts were real I would have smiled, nodded, and called a shrink to fix your deluded little mind. Now it’s my turn to question my sanity when the ghost of my best friend turns up in my apartment. Was it the tequila shots the night before causing this apparition? Or one too many bumps to the head — let’s face it, clumsy is my middle name, it really wouldn’t surprise me if I’d done some irreparable damage to my grey matter over the years.

Now I have to accept that the paranormal does, in fact, exist. But sadly, my ghost friend is lacking something besides his body. His memory. He doesn’t know how he died but suspects foul play and he wants my help to find his killer. I can’t refuse, I’m a sucker for a good mystery and the chance to bring my friend's killer to justice is too good to pass up.

Surprises abound as I discover a secret talent for sleuthing, not to mention an unexpected inheritance of a talking cat among other things. But the biggest problem of all? Captain Cowboy Hot Pants, or as he likes to be called, Detective Kade Galloway of the Firefly Bay PD. He’s one smokin’ cop, but my distrust of the police runs deep and despite his assurances that he’s here to help can I really trust him, or is his offer of assistance designed to keep me from discovering the truth?

I guess I’ll find out when death comes knocking on my door.

Join Audrey Fitzgerald in the Ghost Detective series, a paranormal cozy mystery featuring a cat, a ghost, and a murder to solve.
