Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction (The Ahriman Legacy Book 1), by Puja Guha. (Still 0.99?)

"I really enjoyed this thriller, learned about Middle East politics, and had something interesting and easy to read for a few days (yes, that's how fast I read it. Couldn't stop). Fortunately there will be a continuation of this story. Can't wait for more! I recommend this book to everyone who's interested in--not only in the Middle East, spies, action, and suspense--but also in supporting young new talented writers like Guha." -- Amazon Reviewer

Espionage. Assassins. Middle East.
When the CIA intercepts intelligence on a terrorist attack in Kuwait, Petra Shirazi, a former field agent, comes face to face with the Ahriman, one of Iran's deadliest assassins.

It was the year when global economies continued to plummet despite analysts' predictions of a turnaround.
It was the year when the Kuwaiti National Assembly consisted of the largest Islamic contingent in more than two decades.
It was the month when the price of oil plunged to twenty dollars a barrel.
It was the month when the Emir of Kuwait dissolved the National Assembly for the thirteenth time in fifteen years.
It was the day when the head of the Islamic majority of the Assembly hired an assassin and the CIA intercepted intelligence about a new wave of terrorist attacks.
It was the day that would change the face of the Middle East forever.

It was May 15, 2021.

After a disastrous mission forces her out of the field, Petra Shirazi retires from a life of espionage to work in a research position. Three years later, her division stumbles upon a money trail that reveals a massive new wave of terrorist attacks. The money trail places her in the midst of an assassination plot that implicates the highest levels of the Kuwaiti and Iranian governments. Petra will find herself face to face with the Ahriman, a man named for the Persian spirit of destruction who is responsible for a series of bomb blasts that paralyzed the Suez Canal two years earlier. As the investigation begins to unravel, the ripple effects threaten to engulf not only the Middle East and its Western allies, but also the darkest secrets of Petra's past.

The Boy Who Fell from the Sky (The House Next Door Book 1), by Jule Owen. (Still free?)

"This was a beautifully written story. Also the editing and proofreading appeared flawless. I appreciate that. This story is outside of my normal genres. But I totally enjoyed it nonetheless. The future worlds created were amazing. By the details given, one could visualize where the author took us. I enjoyed the characters, the mystery and the thought provoking problems of the future. Jule has a sequel to this and I anticipate it to be just as good, and probably better!" -- Amazon Reviewer

The Boy Who Fell from the Sky is the first of a mind-twisting new YA dystopian series

Wattpad Science Fiction Hotlist Book

Introducing Mathew Erlang, creator of holographic dragons, who is about to get tangled up in the future in a rather serious way
The world is falling apart in 2055. Floods have devastated London, on the eve of the First Space War. With the city locked down, sixteen-year-old Mathew Erlang is confined to his house with only his cat, his robot and his holographic dragons for company.
Desperate for a distraction from the chaos around him, Mathew becomes fascinated by his peculiar and reclusive neighbour, August Lestrange, and begins to investigate, turning to the virtual world of the Nexus and Blackweb for answers. But as he digs deeper, Mathew realises that Mr. Lestrange isn't a normal man at all.
When Mathew accidentally finds himself trapped in Lestrange's house, he opens a door and falls four hundred years into the future. Unwittingly, he starts to destabilise the course of human history.
The Boy Who Fell from the Sky delves into a future where climate change and technology have transformed the world. It is the first book in the House Next Door trilogy, a young adult dystopian science fiction action adventure.
Mathew's story continues in Silverwood, Book 2 in the House Next Door series.

˃˃˃ Interview with Author

Q. What made you want to write YA time travel fiction?
I love books like the Hunger Games and Divergent. I also love books like Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking and Chuck Wendig's Heartland Trilogy. They are all exciting, deeply engaging dystopian action adventure series. They all make you stop and think. So I wanted to write something similar. But I've been reading about futurology and climate change for years and they have seeped into my subconscious. I liked the idea of exploring possible futures based on the non-fiction I'd be reading. To do that I needed Mathew Erlang, my main character, to be able to jump forward into the future to see how things turn out.
Q. Why specifically write teen dystopia? Why not write for adults?
I'm not sure I am specifically writing just for teens. I read a lot of young adult fiction and I'm certainly not a teen! But when I built the world and the much bigger story that Mathew's tale exists in, he happened to turn out to be a teenaged boy at the beginning of his series.
Q. So is there a bigger story beyond Mathew's then?
Readers need to find out more about the Lamplighter, the Kind and understand more about who Mr. Lestrange really is, so yes, there's lots more to come.
Q. You describe your books at cli-fi. What does that mean?
Cli-fi means climate change fiction. It's a spin on sci-fi, of course, but it's a type of dystopian science fiction or speculative fiction that specifically deals with the impact of climate change on the people of the future.
Q. Why did you want to write about climate change?
It's the big issue of our times and the biggest challenge we've faced as a civilisation. There's a huge scientific consensus about the fact that climate change is man made and that it is likely to massively disrupt our lives in the future, but lots of people don't believe in it. I read an article a while ago in The New Scientist (which is my favourite magazine) saying that the climate change lobby needs more artists and writers to go and spread the message. Frighteningly, young people, who are likely to suffer the most in the future, are particularly not engaging with the issue.
Q. When will the next one in the series be out?
The third and final part, The Moon at Noon will be out in December 2015. Look out for the box-set in early 2016.

Two Worlds. Two Species. One Terrifying Secret.

In 2163, a polluted and overcrowded Earth forces humans to search for a new home. But the exoplanet they target, Exilon 5, is occupied.

Having already begun a massive relocation programme, the World Government on Earth sends Bill Taggart to monitor the threat level of the Indigenes, the alien race that lives on Exilon 5. Bill is a man on the edge. He believes the Indigenes killed his wife, but he doesn't know why. Until now.

Stephen has every reason to despise the humans and their attempts to colonise his planet. To protect his species from further harm, he must go against his very nature and become human.

Laura O'Halloran is losing her daily battle with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Her only chance at recovery is leaving the dark Earth for the sunnier climate of Exilon 5. She hopes her credentials as a World Government employee will secure her a one-way trip, but with the ever increasing relocation demand that is not a guarantee.

Let Me Love You, by Lily Foster. (Still free?)

"You know when you read a book and you feel sad when you get to the last page? I was in mourning for a few days after I finished this book. I actually missed the characters! This story revolves around Rene and Caleb. Their story is so heartwrenching, so beautiful and painful. It's also HOT. Seriously, there were points when I was laughing out loud and others when I was weepy. A great new adult romance. Loved it." -- Amazon Reviewer
