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).

The first book in the Dragons of Esternes Epic fantasy series.
Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Dragons of Esternes series special?
A - I don't think there's just one thing that sets them apart because what I wanted to do was to write the kind of book that I like to read when it comes to fantasy. My favourites usually involve dragons and my first read was Anne McCaffreys' Dragonriders of Pern, though movies like Dragonheart and Dragonslayer certainly appealed to me too.
Of course the Dragonflight books aren't technically fantasy but in a similar way the Patterners World, which is where these books are set, also have a very strong scientific background, although in this case it really is pure fantasy.
I don't like books with padding, to be honest, I don't think anyone does. That's one thing you won't find here. The stories are taut and fast-paced, they will keep you turning the pages - there's never a dull moment.
Then with a POC lead character and a wealth of interesting supporting characters, plus a unique take on Dragons themselves I don't think there's much not to like.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - There's just the four books and this is the order:
- Rebel Dragon
- Outlaw Dragon
- Heretic Dragon
- Battle Dragon
There is a prequel "Racing Dragon" but that's only available to my newsletter subscribers.
Q - So, who should give these books a try?
A - Anyone who wants a unique approach to fantasy, in a world that is both familiar and utterly different. But ultimately anyone who loved Anne McCaffrey's Pern books, Anne McCaffrey, Christopher Paolini's Eragon series, or writers like Naomi Novik and Robin Hobb. Or maybe they just want to have their own dragons like Daenerys Targaryen.

Umberto Eco’s first novel, an international sensation and winner of the Premio Strega and the Prix Médicis Étranger awards
The year is 1327. Benedictines in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective.

He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where “the most interesting things happen at night.”
“Like the labyrinthine library at its heart, this brilliant novel has many cunning passages and secret chambers . . . Fascinating . . . ingenious . . . dazzling.” – Newsweek
