Definition of the "Science Fiction Genre": The focus of this subgenre of fiction is science and technology, especially as they will possibly exist in a future time. Some of the typical aspects of a Science Fiction ebook are time travel, future worlds with technology that may not even be contemplated at this point, aliens and other life forms, and travelling in space. What separates the Science Fiction subgenre from the Fantasy subgenre of fiction is that the imagined or invented elements of a Science Fiction novel typically have more of a probability of existing. They are based upon scientific principles, not principles of magic.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Science Fiction genre are Frank Herbert (Dune), Isaac Asimov (Foundation), Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game) and George Orwell (1984).

She just doesn't know it yet.

There she discovers secrets the mages on both sides would prefer stay hidden. Dark enemies hunt her and soon it's not just Sara questioning the motivation behind this war.
While fighting mages, blackmailing merchants and discovering new friends, Sara comes across something she's never had before - passion. The question is - can she fight for her empress against a mage who might unwittingly claim her heart?
This is year one of the Initiate Wars. Sara is hoping it doesn't become the year she dies.
THE CRUELEST WORDS IN ANY LANGUAGE: “YOUR KIND.”
An exotic, futuristic epic fantasy, the Rise of the Iliri series captures a world at its most bleak—and most hopeful: a nation of terrorists called the Terrans, under the thumb of an evil Emperor, sets out to systematically destroy every race but their own. And they’re just about to succeed. Author Auryn Hadley cleverly blends adventure amidst brutal war with the age-old human struggle between good and evil, hatred and love—all through the lens of a powerful and intriguing female lead, the likes of which the fantasy genre hasn’t yet seen.
On a world named Ogun, where humans define “our kind” and “their kind,” Private Salryc Luxx is iliri, a member of "their kind" bred by humans thousands of years ago for protection. In an unfortunate twist of fate, the iliri also happen to be a dangerous predator. Enslaved until being conscripted into the army at eighteen after biting a military officer on the shoulder, Sal’s one and only goal is to fight her way into the Black Blades, an elite special operations unit within the army of the Conglomerate of Free Citizens. To be feared as a Black Blade is as close to freedom as an iliran can get.
And her appearance—the milky-white skin, long white hair, pale inhuman eyes, and expressive ears on the top of her head—ensures that she will never be mistaken for anything but the rarest of her kind, a pure iliri female. It comes with powers no man can resist, even if it means his death... Humans treat her like a freak, but iliri instantly recognize the perfection of exactly what she was designed to be: an unequaled killing machine. Able to see in the dark, with acute hearing and a sense of smell sensitive enough to read emotions, the iliri are smaller but more powerful than humans, the females quicker than the males and, therefore, deadlier.
But Sal has no idea what she is. She was raised solely among humans, with no exposure to her own kind or their traditions. Everything she thinks she knows about herself came to her through the eyes of humans—who care for nothing but their own kind. Acceptance into the Blades has given her the family she’s never had, not to mention access to a devoted line of potential mates. And with it, the protection of seven of the fiercest warriors in existence. After only a few months of training, she surpasses their skills and becomes the most lethal member of the unit. It will take much longer for them to teach her who she is: their destiny.
Each of the Black Blades will die to protect her. Some of them will submit to the bloodlust that overtakes her in battle and can be quenched only by roughly passionate mating. Eventually, all of them will submit to her command. They are her pack. Soon the world will learn what she now knows, that the Black Blades, the best of the elites, are all iliri.
Author Hadley has crafted a multi-layered fantasy series—and a fascinating new world. Her heroine, Sal, is as loving as she is fierce, and the demons she battles—and the way she beats them—underlie a deeper earthly truth. Hadley’s clever takes on racial prejudice are subtle, yet damning--and her idea of sexual politics is a rip-roaring turn-on. Every female reader will want to be Sal…and every male, like the guys in the book, will fall for her.
Did we mention the erotic scenes are hot? Steamy!
This is the first book in an action-packed, epic, science-based fantasy series that fans of Avatar and Game of Thrones will love; not to mention The Dragonriders of Pern. BloodLust does not end with a cliffhanger. It does contain adult themes, thus may not be suitable for younger readers.
An irreverent, twisty, time travel comedy!
What if you could make a change to history that would eliminate the Spanish Inquisition, American slavery, World War II, global warming, and an egomaniacal US president who thought he was smart enough to drop nuclear bombs here and there without negative consequences? What if that change also made the United States and 5 billion people poof from existence? Would you do it?
When alien time travel specialists, the Krichards, learn of President Handley's game of dodge the mushroom cloud, they race to Earth to investigate. For them, the question of whether it's worth it to change history is easy to answer, but they will only proceed if the human they deem best qualified to represent Earth agrees to make the change. Erasing Handley's nuclear annihilation would require a quick jump to AD 31 to make a simple correction to the past. If the Krichards had selected a brilliant scientist or an elite athlete for the task, Earth might be in good hands. Instead they selected Marty Mann, a mildly successful travel writer, whose only superpower is not taking life too seriously. What could possibly go wrong?
Spanning from the Cretaceous period to 2056, Time is Irreverent is a hilarious, thought-provoking satire, with unpredictable twists, colorful aliens, huge dinosaurs, a smokin' hot lesbian from the future, and a cameo from Jesus Christ himself!
He wanted to be a good man. Instead he became a hero.
Twenty years ago, Serenity City's great Triumvirate of heroes - Achilles, the Banshee, and Pendragon - maintained a golden age of peace and prosperity. Then, in an instant, it all went wrong. The city's mightiest champion, Achilles, lost his mind during a showdown with the enigmatic supervillain Thanatos and went on a rampage across the city, leaving the Banshee dead and a swath of destruction in his wake before Pendragon could stop him.
Today, as Achilles rots in solitary confinement, Victoria Westerdale investigates a new mystery. Why are young and forgotten heroes disappearing off the streets? Why doesn't anybody else care? And how is it tied in to those infamous events that brought the city's greatest heroes to ruin?
And what's going to happen to them all after Achilles escapes?
The first of a new wave of superhero novels! Coming soon:
He's the only one who can stop what's coming. But even he may not be enough.
Onen Suun is immortal and the only one who has the power to go up against the dark god, Dag'draath, who is waging a war on everyone. Onen is doing the best he can to bring everyone together, to fight for the common good.
But they're losing. With every day the war rages on, he loses more people. More victories mean fewer fighters for the next engagement. His allies, his trusted friends, are leaving him.
He still has one move left. It's desperate, but so is he. So is the world.
He will do anything to ensure the people of this world have the fighting chance they need to survive and outwit Dag'draath.
Anything at all.
In Shelley Singer’s second action-packed post-apocalyptic adventure starring kickass survivor and mercenary Rica Marin, war is at her loved ones’ doorstep—and Rica’s elected to unite the western states against the invaders.
It’s 2066, a few decades after the dreaded Poisoning, and Rica’s world is full of bandits, terrorists, godders, and militias. Ever fearless, she’s working as a spy for the Coleman clan—arguably the most powerful family and casino in the salvaged city state of Sierra—headed up by the irresistibly elegant Jo, whose fierce will to protect her own borders drives her to action before anyone else sees what's coming.
On assignment, Rica learns the fabled city of Reno, long thought to have been totally destroyed, is a literal smoke screen. Smoke encases the city to disguise what lies beneath: the Rockymountain army, gathering strength within Sierra’s own borders, all under the thumb of an invisible leader known only as “Bane.” And they could attack Sierra at any time.
Torn between her allegiance to her home in Redwood and her work in Sierra, and between an old love and a new love, Rica embarks on a journey to try to unite Rockymountain’s enemies—in a world that doesn’t much trust allegiances—before time runs out.
But Rica’s adventures aren’t all action and gore. While the circumstances of post-apocalyptic chaos and gritty violence means Rica must be hardened, at times ruthless, and always on-guard, she’s also very soft—loving and above all loyal. More than anyone, she puts family first—even before self-preservation.
Shelley Singer’s futuristic vision of a world that’s both tech-savvy and falling apart, dangerous and still full of warmth is one of the series’ great charms, along with the competent yet caring Rica.
Readers who love .A. G. Riddle, Octavia Butler, and Susan Kiernan-Lewis’ Irish End Games should come ride shotgun in Rica’s floater car—fans of women’s adventure fiction and post-apocalyptic thrillers, especially with female protagonists, will adore Rica and the Blackjack Trilogy.

In a town where the monsters don't always have claws, someone has to look out for the little guy. That's where I come in.
They call me cunning man, conjurer, wizard, but mostly they call me Ozzy. If a witch is throwing curses your way, or there's something scary scratching at your window in the night, I've got just the charm for you.
Mostly, though, I find things. Lost treasures, missing loved ones, doesn't matter. If you want something found, I'm your guy. For a nominal fee, of course.
So when a grieving father hired me to track down a stolen family heirloom, I was happy to help. Trouble is, what started out as another garden-variety stolen property job just ended in attempted murder. Mine.
They made a mistake, though, when they put a bullet in my stomach and left me for the worms.
They didn't bury me deep enough.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, AND SHELF AWARENESS
“I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.”
“I live for you,” I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.”
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.
But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

"Fast-paced action and a decisive, strong-minded heroine make this a good choice for fans of the postapocalyptic thrillers." --Library Journal
Fans of Lisbeth Salander of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games will love Rica Marin, a new kickass, gunslinging heroine.
Rica Marin’s a mercenary—a hired gun, soldier, and spy who answers only to whoever can keep her in the meds she and her only living relative need to survive the plagues that scourge the earth after biological warfare’s wiped out pretty much everything.
It’s a strange world that’s left—composed of tiny city-states like Redwood, Sierra, and Rocky—run with a variety of futuristic machines and broken-down ones. Fancy new cars float as well as roll, but the Internet’s now so glitchy you can't even blog properly—newspapers have come back! So many machines are in disrepair that a fixer in this world isn't someone who rigs elections or cleans up after murders—it’s a person who can repair both an elevator and an ancient toilet. But roving bands of bandits, godders, causies, breeders, khakis, and toxies threaten to destroy what’s just been fixed.
Anywhere there are people—however few—there’ll be power plays, and Rica’s current job at the Blackjack Casino is to run interference between the warring clans of Tahoe, in tiny Sierra. But then the city-state of Rocky gets ambitious. And that means war.
" ...truly one of those books that the reader simply cannot set aside until completion. A story whose pace is akin to the speed of a rocket-launcher missile, Blackjack will grasp any reader by the throat and hang on till the end. What characters! What plotting! ... (Torch Song) will linger in the mind for long after the completion, with the question ringing: Could a near-future like this actually occur?" —Euro-Reviews
WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of THE HUNGER GAMES Trilogy, The Millennium Trilogy, and post-apocalyptic thrillers and dystopian fiction. Think LEGEND for adults, or a literary expansion of THE BOOK OF ELI.
"Shelley Singer does an excellent job of describing a bleak future of the US.... Shelley’s world is dark and gritty with complex characters and an intriguing theme." -- Night Owl Reviews
It's the year 2031. Our future. Their present. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun's heat is deadly and the ocean rises higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can’t survive for long.
Hogan Duran was a good man once. He was a cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn't save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.
But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets a chance to get back on his feet. He's invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he'll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams.
But this ex-cop's path to redemption won't be easy. The NSC are hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new world maintain their power...and just how far they will go to protect their secrets.
In a world gone wrong, can one man actually make a difference, or will he die trying?

Life in deep space could be a drag sometimes, but Daisy supposed things could have been worse. They were still alive, after all, which was always a plus in her book. Now if only she could figure out who, or what, was endangering her return home, things would be just peachy.
It had been one hell of a way to start the day––being rudely snapped from a deep cryo-sleep, and in the middle of a ship-wide crisis to boot––but Daisy was pleased to note that the ship had not decompressed, the crew hadn’t been blasted into space, and, most importantly, they hadn’t simply blown up. At least not yet. So, they had that going for them, but being stuck on a damaged ship in the inky depths of space as it limped toward Earth was not exactly the relaxing trip home she’d imagined.
With the powerful AI supercomputer guiding the craft beginning to show some disconcerting quirks of its own, and its unsettling cyborg assistant nosing into her affairs, Daisy’s unease was rapidly growing. Add to the mix a crew of mechanically-enhanced humans, any one of whom she suspected might not be what they seemed, and Daisy found herself with a sense of pending dread tickling the periphery of her mind.
Something was very much not right––she could feel it in her bones. The tricky part now was going to be figuring out what the threat was, before it could manifest from a mere sinking feeling in her gut into a potentially deadly reality.
Time travel. Every sober scientist thinks it’s utterly impossible.
Of course, Phineas Templeton is no sober scientist in any sense of the word. A quirky English chap with a taste for fine scotch, Dr. Templeton builds a time machine at the behest of his mysterious Benefactor. His mission? To meet Jesus Christ Himself, and garner all of the fame, recognition, and accolades that writing an epic time travelogue would bring.
Unfortunately for Finny, Jesus is actually a fellow time traveler, a hippie named Trent from Colorado. While He explains that the past is fixed and immutable (“What happened, like, HAPPENED, man…"), Dr. Templeton realizes that he’s made a horrible oversight in his calculations, and can’t return to his own time period.
The only way home is to follow a list of very specific instructions his Benefactor has hidden on the time machine, which sends him on a madcap, at times hilarious voyage from watching his hero, Sir Isaac Newton, be berated by a high school physics teacher, to hunting dinosaurs, to rescuing two colorful American soldiers and fighting Nazis hellbent on his destruction.
All the while, Phineas is left to question his Benefactor’s true intentions. Just who is the shadowy person pulling the strings of a conspiracy thousands of years in the making? And why is Finny so key to their machinations?
A novel that’s been called “equal parts ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Back to the Future,’" "Jesus Was a Time Traveler" is a book that will please fans of Dan Brown and Douglas Adams alike with quirky humor, thought-provoking puzzles, cryptic clues, and a finicky universe that would like nothing more than to keep things as they are.
HERE'S WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING (In addition to the great reviews on Amazon below!):
