Released from a mental institution, she hopes her new university, West Wood Academy, will give her the chance at a normal life. But such is not to be…. For a secret coven plots within West Wood, and demons and angels alike walk the streets of Luz, searching for the key to open Raziel’s book–a secret tome from a lost archangel.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to both Heaven and Hell, and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

HORNS by Joe Hill, $1.99 through 7/7/14
Ignatius Martin Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke the next morning with a headache, put his hands to his temples and felt something unfamiliar, a pair of knobby, pointed protuberances. He was so ill-wet-eyed and weak-he didn’t think anything of it at first, was too hungover for thinking or worry. But when he was swaying over the toilet, he glanced at himself in the mirror above the sink and saw he had grown horns while he slept. The second son of a renowned musician and doting mother, Ig Perrish had a privileged life and expectations of a bright future with his childhood sweetheart, Merrin Williams. But life takes an unexpected dark turn when Merrin is brutally killed and suspicion falls hard on Ig. A year passes, but Ig is nowhere near over his grief or his rage… feelings that come to a head in a lost evening of drinking and hate. When he wakes the next morning he discovers that he has undergone a surreal transformation, and is in possession of an incredible power. It isn’t long before he turns his terrible new abilities towards vengeance. Unfortunately Ig is about to learn that when it comes to revenge, the devil is in the details…
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill, $1.99 through 6/30/14
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her dayglo blue Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country. Each time she makes a trip across that bridge, a piece of herself is lost. But Vic isn’t the only one with a special gift. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. Mile by mile, their journey across the highway of Charlie’s twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor. Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble-and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid to ever escape his unmitigated evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But the end of one nightmare is just the beginning of another . . . because Charlie Manx hasn’t stopped thinking about the exceptional Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son. In a life-and-death battle of wills-her magic pitted against his-Vic McQueen is going to get her son back and destroy Manx once and for all. Or she’ll die trying. . . .
THE EYE OF GOD by James Rollins, $1.99 through 6/30/14
The crash of a U.S. military research satellite triggers an explosive search in the remote wilds of Mongolia and China for the valuable cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy, the energy connected to the birth of our universe. But the last blurry image from the falling satellite displayed something else entirely: a frightening view of the eastern seaboard of the United States-of a coast smoldering and in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who had vanished a decade earlier. It contains two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. A DNA exam of these macabre items reveals they both came from a single body: the long-dead Mongol king, Genghis Khan, whose lost tomb is said to hide the vast treasures and knowledge of an ancient empire. It is up to Commander Gray Pierce, utilizing the full force of Sigma and aided by a pair of Vatican historians, to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the very roots of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the true fate of humanity.
THE WASTELAND SAGA by Nick Cole, $1.99 through 6/24/14

The Old Man and the Wasteland:
Forty years after the destruction of civilization… Man is reduced to salvaging the ruins of a broken world.

A boy and his horse must complete the final mission of the last American soldier. What unfolds is an coming-of-age epic journey across a terrifying America gone savage.
The Road is a River:
An Old Man and his Granddaughter set out across a post-apocalyptic wasteland to free a group of survivors trapped beneath a mountain in the underground bunker at NORAD. Together, along with a mysterious Boy they rescue in the desert, they face the terrors of a radioactive Las Vegas infested by an army of crazies, journey east into the heart of tribal darkness that is the Apache of the Wasteland and, as they near their final confrontation with the infamous King Charlie, meet a maniacal fool bent on the nonsense of utopia. Post-apocalypse meets Shakespeare’s King Lear in this final and epic conclusion of the tale.
