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).
Computer chip expert Scott Meikle offers a fresh take on a global industry and its future.
Computer chips are everywhere. The pervasiveness of the chip has thrust its development and manufacture onto the center stage of a global struggle for industrial supremacy. From the outset, the struggle has been an East-West competition.
Blending nuanced cultural and geopolitical insight The House of Making Things tells a perspective-shifting story set against the international race for dominance in chip manufacturing and technology.
Joint venture TeraSil and expat John Schmidt face a moment of reckoning. The crushing complexity and cost of leading-edge technology has pushed TeraSil’s partners to their limits. As coleader, John Schmidt must navigate through crossed objectives. But as he sits at the nexus of disputes over capital, manufacturing, and technology, he can’t stop a growing realization of who really has the upper hand in the battle for industrial might.
Author Scott Meikle draws upon decades of personal experience in an immersive narrative that brings to life the competition for success in the chip industry—and in the process, he shatters our narrowing Western perspective and delivers a broader understanding of the forces that are driving a global race for leadership in industry and science.

Praise for The Helm of Darkness:
"Fabulous reading! Incredible world-building! Characters that come to life! Tons of twists, lots of action!" - Dianne at Tome Tender, ★★★★★
"Even the smallest of characters has a backstory, invoking such a love and engagement in me that it was difficult to drag myself away. I loved all of our protagonists deeply, despite their flaws and behaviours." - JK at Book Odyssey, ★★★★★
"This is the kind of book where you wonder why everyone isn't raving about it because it's the best thing since sliced bread . . . Mobley did a great job writing believable characters that grew over the course of the book but never strayed from their original identity. The characters in this, even minor ones, were given so much detail and show how well-thought-out the story is." - Alexia at BookishEnds, ★★★★★
"I enjoyed seeing a darker side to the Gods. Mostly in books and in real life, we picture Gods as being heavenly light and pure with good intentions. I liked how the readers for once see the greedy, hateful, controlling side as well. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to read the next book in the series, Poseidon's Trident!" - Julia at Pages for Thoughts, ★★★★★
"For fans of Greek mythology, this story is like a treasure trove of references that is bound to satisfy your appetite." - Alessandro Reale, award winning author of Only One Samantha, ★★★★★
"This was a fast paced, dystopian adventure that I think fans of Percy Jackson would enjoy. There are some darker elements, some instances of gore, and some twists I never saw coming, so this may be better for those fans who age out of Percy." - C.E. Clayton, author of The Monster of Selkirk series, ★★★★★
"After Percy Jackson's adventures this series will be a hit of YA fantasy." - Eszter Szika at Goodreads, ★★★★★
"Author A.P Mobley has written such a unique plot that I'm actually shocked that not a lot of people know about this story. If writing about Greek mythology wasn't enough for A.P Mobley, she also placed the story in the future after the Greek Gods had taken over Earth. Isn't that interesting enough or what? Like I said before but I'll say it again, WHY ISN'T THIS BOOK WELL KNOWN BY OTHER READERS???" - P. G. Guacamole at Goodreads, ★★★★★
What are you waiting for, dear reader? Dive into The Helm of Darkness and team up with Andy and Zoey as they embark on a mythological quest of Homeric proportions!

But even if he can make it to Midway Star System, the gateway to alien-controlled space, Geary will face former Syndicate officials who have rebelled and regard the Alliance with deep suspicion. And that will be the easy part. . . .

On a cold spring night in 1952, a huge meteorite fell to earth and obliterated much of the east coast of the United States, including Washington D.C. The ensuing climate cataclysm will soon render the earth inhospitable for humanity, as the last such meteorite did for the dinosaurs. This looming threat calls for a radically accelerated effort to colonize space, and requires a much larger share of humanity to take part in the process.
Elma York’s experience as a WASP pilot and mathematician earns her a place in the International Aerospace Coalition’s attempts to put man on the moon, as a calculator. But with so many skilled and experienced women pilots and scientists involved with the program, it doesn’t take long before Elma begins to wonder why they can’t go into space, too.
Elma’s drive to become the first Lady Astronaut is so strong that even the most dearly held conventions of society may not stand a chance against her.
Why is it that thieves and mages never mix? Probably because thieves remind mages too much of themselves.
A young female thief is working to help her crew stay alive in Waypoint, a city that exists on the precipice of humanity to one side and in the shadows of Ziammotienth on the other.
Also called Tolan’s Doom, the mountain torn asunder by a dragon—if you believe in myths.
Many an adventurer calls Waypoint the only bastion of civilization before returning to the remains of the once-great half-elven city’s remains from which to strike into the darkness underground.
Most do not return.
Kaylin has no intention of heading to the mountain’s grip. But will she be able to evade its grasp?
Is Ziammotienth just a story of legends and minstrels or much more? Commerce, adventure, and intrigue swirl around the young thief as she fights her way into a far larger world than she had expected to experience.
