The Odyssey – Part two of the Sphere-World Series
One way – once chance! A journey that will change the way they view human history.
Bella and Nick are about to leave space station Delta 9 behind forever; undertaking the journey of a lifetime to make their way back to Earth.
Five billion light-years of uncharted territory, unknown dangers, and years of confinement in a tiny spaceship lie ahead. Their companions are hope, fear, love, and desperation. Their values and loyalties get challenged, as their boundaries and ethics shift. The rules that kept a pocket of humankind functional for 5,000 years in the isolation of outer space no longer apply to the handful of people on board The Odyssey!
It is a journey into the unknown and dangerous depths of the universe, a journey to the home planet of humankind, a place that nobody had contact with in over 5,000 years. Earth might well be wrecked, devastated, destroyed - unfit for humans to live, perhaps even devoid of life entirely.
Nick Cole doesn't care: All he wants is to take Bella away from The Sphere - the alien artifact, which is home to Dylan, Bella's imaginary husband... or so Nick thinks; because Nick is in love with Bella.
Bella doesn't care either: All she wants is to spirit her alien husband away from the confines of the space station, where he lies in hiding, desperately trying to conceal his presence from his species as well as from the humans. He must stay undiscovered! Everybody's life is at stake.
It is also a journey into the human mind. A journey of change and adaptation. A journey to the boundaries of human morals, ethics, and laws. Allegiances, beliefs, and ethics get challenged and re-written.
As the laws and rules of the space-stationers' society become irrelevant to the crew of The Odyssey, as changing social dynamics and environments force them to reconsider and redefine their personal values and boundaries, friendships threaten to break apart, and social bonds weaken.
The human mind is easy to overwhelm - feeble when faced with the unthinkable.
Who will make it through the turmoil unscathed? Who will survive, and who will perish?

Linguist Andy Dennison-Jones knows this all too well. He and his veterinarian wife, Sun, have been chased by them before, and barely escaped from a secret underground government facility with their lives.
Now they once again find themselves trapped alongside a collection of creatures straight out of hell. Fighting with them is an unlikely group of misfits, including a misplaced British kid, a former spec-ops soldiers, and a strange Irishman who might be the oldest living thing on earth--if he's even alive at all.
Filled with the kind of slam-bang action, wicked scares, and sly humor that have earned J.A. Konrath and Iain Rob Wright millions of fans, HOLES IN THE GROUND is both a collaboration and a continuation of both authors' previous work (ORIGIN by Konrath and FINAL WINTER by Wright) but also serves as a perfect introduction to their universes.

Early Release, because I misjudged some things, but I do not want to delay this story anymore.
Cannibalism, revenge, frustrated sexual desires and the lust for reaping a life away. This world is violated by the damned overwatched by the Angel of death experiencing the sweet delicacy of schadenfreude.
A world being feed upon by itself, where the snow falls like ashes, the cold blisters ones face, where people wear masks to become themselves. A tragic unexpected death leaves Clayton, a young boy faced with his new life, being fostered into a broken family, which the events will lead to his career in law enforcement, where he'll experience the true cannibalistic horrors of what this world has to offer.
"Wow! Wow! Wow! Loved this concept so much. The idea is very unique and seems like it was planned out very well. Loved the more gritty descriptions of the murders and the reaper himself. Characters were unique and done well..." -

It is a fateful night. A blue moon commands the sky, and the townspeople of Tressaria throng to Mr. Beedro’s Carnival, staged in a fortress overlooking a vibrant seaport. But, not everyone is free to join the revelry. Darné Veskka, displayed as 'The Human Beast' in freak show, 'The Chamber of Curiosities', stands at the bars of his cage consumed by loneliness.
In the darkest hours, carnival aerialist, Clare Dupree, breaks into his cage - armed with a razor and an obsession. Her quest is to shave off his beard so that she can see his face, and her desire is fueled by a dark secret. The giant, who has never felt a woman’s touch, threatens her life - but ultimately succumbs to the beauty's seduction.
The young man’s dramatic transformation enflames the populace, and sets the course of the couple’s destiny. Against the backdrop of a carnival populated with sublime and grotesque characters, the star-crossed lovers scheme to undermine a centuries-old patriarchy, where “coin is king”, and citizens mere pawns to enrich debauched governors. Darné and Clare’s quest for sovereignty will draw them into the throes of a fiery revolution.
"The Chamber of Curiosities" is filled with magic, adventure, noblemen, bold women, sadistic rulers, and betrayed lovers, and offers an epic journey for those who question whether a single act of faith can change the course of human destiny.

Tom Barlow and Virginia Thompson had a forbidden love that would be the envy of any couple. Tom and Virginia would sneak out of their houses and meet at their favorite place to gaze at the stars and share an evening of passion. Their secret place to rendezvous was this old wooden bridge known as the Old Mill Bridge that was in the middle of nowhere. It was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. Any passionate noises that came from both of them would go unnoticed. Not many of the town’s people would travel down to the Old Mill Bridge because the bridge was deemed unsafe and could collapse at any time. There was a sign next to the bridge that read "Beware Not Safe for Vehicle Crossing."

On the long list of things that Nick Sherman never wants to do, getting an electric boner is near the very top. He has enough trouble with the girls without all that. But one day, while ditching class and getting high with his friend Hugh, he comes across a shed full of a mysterious and foul green substance on the outskirts of Clairmont, Maine, that leads exactly to Nick ending up with an electric boner.
This bubbling green substance also leads to a lot of other trouble for the small town. Devised by a brilliant, but extremely sexist and greedy scientist named Jonathan Huskfield, the green stuff does not work as intended, not that it was intended to be used in a good way to begin with. When Huskfield does a field experiment to test his creation, it ends in his gruesome, undignified death.
Sarah Johnston, a rival scientist who hates Huskfield and the patriarchy, works furiously after his death to discover what exactly the substance is. Once she puts the pieces together, she decides to use the stuff for her own terrible ends. Meanwhile, the Clairmont police department, led by Lt. Mikhail Duvlosky, scrambles to figure out just what the hell is going on. And deep in the darkness, sinister glowing yellow eyes watch it all unfold.
All that Nick Sherman wanted was a little courage, to talk to the girl of his dreams, Lucy Littleton. Instead, he and his friends end up with their hands full, bad things coming from all directions.
Prepare to be shocked.

Penny thought she met the man of her dreams until she came home earlier than usual on a stormy night just days before their first anniversary together. She opened the door to the bedroom they shared together with her fiancé Jack. She dropped her purse and said “What in the hell is going on here?” Her fiancé Jack said “It’s not what you think!” “Then what the hell is it?” said Penny in an angry voice. “Penny, I can explain,” said her confident fiancé. “I think I need to leave,” replied Jan the woman Jack was caught sleeping with. “Jack, do you even realize what you’ve done?” asked a teary eyed Penny. Penny picked up her purse from off the floor and turned her back to them both and said “You haven’t heard the last of this by a long shot!” exclaimed Penny.
Jack yelled out to Penny as she slammed the door behind her. “Penny please come back we can work this out?” Penny’s response was “I’m not coming back, it’s over between us!” Jack yelled out to her once more but all he heard was silence and his little one night stand said “You didn’t tell me there was another woman in your life besides me,” said Jan in an upset state of mind. Jan got dressed and stormed out of his house. Jack sat on his bed with his hands over his face realizing how a few minutes of pleasure turned his whole world upside down. Jack tried his best for many days calling Penny on his cell phone and texting her, but to no avail.

It was the summer of '72 and Jason Helsing was born into a world that was supposed to embrace him, but only left him alone on this big planet to figure things out on his own.
After his birth Jason was whisked off to foster home after foster home without knowing what it was like to be brought up in a happy home. Jason had been teased all through his school years about how slow he was, and couldn't keep up with the other classmates on any subject he took. Jason didn't have nice clothes like other students had. All he wanted was to be accepted, but all he got was heartaches
As the years peeled away, and Jason became more resentful towards his classmates, and his foster parents, the anger that was bottled up inside was about to explode, and the classmates that tormented him all those years were about to have their innocence destroyed by the hands of someone that just wanted to be loved, but instead got his heart crushed.
One night when Jason was lying in his bed trying to get a good night’s sleep he started having flashbacks when one of his foster father's was choking his wife, but didn't kill her. When Jason entered their room he asked what was going on and his foster father said, "Come in boy and watch a real man in action."
All Jason wanted to do was run and hide, but his foster father grabbed him by the arm, and told him to place his hands around her neck, and squeeze. Jason was scared, but knew if he didn't do what his foster father told him to do, he would be beaten.
So as her tears poured out from her sad frightened eyes, Jason turned his head, and squeezed, and squeezed. Then his foster father said, "Don't be scared it's only a game, turn and look at her."
She removed Jason's hands from her neck and laughed. Jason said, "I don't find that very funny."
His foster father slapped him in the back of the head and said, "Why don't you go play?"
Jason ran out of the room confused at what just happened.

Luther Gray was what you’d call an odd ball because of his fascination with the dead. Luther always wanted to be a doctor, but never got the opportunity because his father wanted him to inherit the family business and carry on the tradition like he did for his father when the business was passed on to him after his father died. Education was never stressed in his family and if Luther made bad grades at school his father could care less so with no one to encourage Luther to excel at school he just dropped out in the eighth grade and helped his father with odd jobs at the funeral home.
As Luther got older his brain never developed beyond his eighth grade education which caused him to be shy and reserved with no friends outside the funeral home. He was very proud of his work at his father’s funeral home, but he soon became bored with just draining dead people’s blood from their bodies on the cold slab. One day when his father had to go into town and run some errands, this gave Luther a great opportunity to act out his fantasy. Luther said to himself while he was wiping the dripping blood from the shiny blade he used a thousand times on the dead on the cold slab, “I’ll just remove one organ and my father will never know.” Luther removed the intestines to make himself a belt to hold up his baggy pants. Luther felt really cool about what he had done and that his father would never find out his dirty little secret.

Sally Edwards didn't have many friends at Gravendale High School. Whenever Sally tried out for sports she would be picked on by her classmates because she was a tomboy. Sally had buck teeth and matted hair and slurred her speech. She also wore the same clothes to school every day. Sally was poor and was being raised by her alcoholic grandfather who didn't have long to live, maybe weeks at best.
When her classmates got wind of the passing of her grandfather the following week they started picking on her pretty hard. Classmates would say things like "I can see why your grandfather died so soon. It's because you're so ugly and stupid. Just the looks of you helped shorten his life."
Sally was boiling inside and had nowhere to turn or seek comfort in the arms of her parents. Sally's parents were both killed in a home invasion and the only living relative she had was her alcoholic grandfather. Sally's dreams of having a loving family, was shattered by the pull of a trigger.
I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.
I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.
The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.
If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.
If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.
The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.
Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.
Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:
Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.
From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.
Those same searches with a keyword:
Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.
There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:Kindle Freebies
The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.
The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.
Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date
They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online. Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.
If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.
Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.
Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
