Definition of "Thriller Genre": The thriller genre is very broad and can be difficult to define.  However, the focus of a thriller ebook is typically on action, danger and suspense.  The genre can be broken into an almost infinite number of sub-genres, including action thrillers (think Clive Cussler ebooks), romance thrillers, psychological thrillers (think Psycho by Hitchcock), science fiction thrillers, and spy thrillers, just to name a few.  Common elements can include car chases, gun shoot outs, explosions, or in the case of psychological thrillers, the elements of danger can be related to the mental manipulation of characters by other characters.  It is an expansive genre, and one of the most popular at eBookHounds.

 

Some examples of the best thriller authors and ebooks of all time: Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code), Robert Ludlum (The Bourne Identity), Michael Crichton (The Andromeda Strain), John Grisham (Time to Kill), John D. MacDonald (Cape Fear); James Patterson (Kiss the Girls).  As you can see, ebooks in the thriller category vary widely in their substance, and the sub-genres can almost be considered genres of their own!

_________

I’m not the person you remember. Revelations during meditation opened a portal to the mysterious and the veil became a doorway. Dug and discovered a way to plumb energetic cycles to tap the law of attraction and reel in future events. Took experience a step further. Forced to embrace more than can be proven.

The mind is my specialty. How I catch killers.

What good is a premonition if I can’t peg the timing to the calendar? Kate thought.

_________

Secrets buried deep, where Kate's most vulnerable. Clay’s on the outside, to protect their relationship and all they’ve built.

But what happens at their new California home throws them. Who is the blonde and what’s her role? Or is she part of the plot?

Across the veil, messages are cryptic.

The test comes in the moment. Preparation fails without action.

__________

I’ve been up close with serial murderers, which is the work. Ego reveals mania.

Last year, a clear message dropped in. Let go. Prepare.

Time to face him.

End this.

A thriller based around a psychic profiler and behavioral psychologist that will stay with me for a while. This was intense, creepy, nail-biting stuff that had me gripped. I read it in one sitting. I could not put this book down. Highly recommended. - NetGalley Review

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.

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.

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?

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.
