This cobra was of a species which spat its venom from a distance, its mouth half open, the snake forcibly ejecting the venom through its fangs by muscular pressure on the venom glands.
Hising, writhing, the venomous cobra seeks out its prey…
When Sir Keith Chase of Oxford University and Chandra Sen stumble upon the sacred crypt of Monosha in West Bengal, they think it is the archaeological find of the century.
What Keith didn't know was that by breaking open the musty burial chamber, he had brought upon himself one of the most ancient and terrifying curses known to Man.
The mysterious Temple of Anant, the burial location of Anandatirtha and his low caste wife, Khullana, is guarded by Lord Shiva, God of Destruction and his wife Durga.
The depth of the couple’s love touched the hearts of the deities, who swore a pact with Anandatirtha to protect them within the sanctuary of the temple.
Durga swore that she would stand guard with her sister Monosha, the mother serpent, whose earthly form is that of a cobra. Woe betide any god or mortal who dared to profane the sanctuary with their presence.
Sir Keith’s son, James Chase, begins looking into the strange deaths that have been occurring in the area. However, he meets a surprising amount of resistance, both mortal, and supernatural.

“Well, what can I say – what a creation. … Despite the several very scary episodes, some quite grisly too … I think the most frightening elements are something else. One is the ordinariness of it all. There you are, for example, sitting in an ordinary coffee shop, with ordinary coffee shop noises around you from machines and customers drinking an ordinary cup of coffee, and the devil walks in. Or a man who thinks he’s the devil. Or even a crossover, a man-devil. But you don’t realise it’s the devil or whoever/whatever because he/it is in the form of a man … And you’re not necessarily safe in what you suppose is the ultimate sanctuary: a church or its equivalent, because evil, the darkness … can get in anywhere, even in your head, even in the heads of the supposedly incorruptible. That’s the second most frightening element. It’s like walking across Morecambe Bay without a guide: put a foot wrong and you don’t know what you’ll step into. Evil is to the side, at the front, behind, below, above… I do not remember breathing as I read the final chapter.” A.B., a former book editor and previously of the Financial Times.
This is a unique and genuinely chilling book, a web of traditional ghost stories woven within a Faustian tale of evil at its most deadly and ambiguous. Christine O’Donnell is a teller of ghostly tales who finds herself being gradually ensnared by a diabolical master storyteller until, figuratively speaking, she is swallowed whole. She then engages in a desperate struggle to free herself from forces that systematically try to undermine her sanity and terrify her into becoming their servant. Her own fictional stories are frightening in themselves, but the real-life tale in which she finds herself cast in the lead role is more sinister and disturbing than anything she could have imagined.

Have you ever felt a cold unexpected breeze pass you by? have you ever heard your name whispered with no one there? have you ever seen a shadow but passed it off as your imagination?
It all started at an early age of around 10 when Joy felt the spiritual connection. No internet back then so there was very little information she could find out.
All the hunts in this book are true reports that I wrote from each ghost hunt which I used a Dictaphone for, then listened back to and wrote up the next days after. Names and venue names have all been changed and all made up but the spiritual connection that was felt did occur.
Will you be brave enough to read at night times before you go to sleep?

There are now too many outsiders living in Green Street. It has changed beyond recognition, and the likes of Lenny Smith do not like what they are seeing.
The Eagle public house is Green Street's epicentre. Here, you will find Lenny Smith and his cronies talking about the good old days, before the foreigners came and ruined the street. Lenny Smith is a vile bigot, racist to the core and with not a kind word for anyone.
Lenny Smith is the doyen of Green Street, but all of that is about to change.
A wave of unexplainable events sweep through the street, which will change certain lives forever. Mysterious deaths are just the beginning, but what is the ending?
Welcome to Green Street. The people are everyday people – but are they? The lives they lead are ordinary – but are they? The people here are friendly – but are they?

| Dark Slayer: Verse Walker Series: Book 1|
by S.J. Worthy
$0.00, 320 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #15645 in Science Fiction Adventure
A relentless tyrant blinded by an obsession, a merciless bounty hunter unwilling to submit to failure, a broken hero struggling with an inner darkness, and two worlds being torn apart by war.
Juniya is a rather primitive planet whose opposing factions are at war with one another over a struggle for power and personhood. Malnocore is a more advanced world experiencing violent civil unrest due to the rising threat of an extinction level event in response to overpopulation and resource depletion. These two worlds have a fate that is oddly connected.
Morgan Quinn, born a native of Juniya, had been exposed to the harshness of life at an early age. She narrowly escaped an arranged marriage, bore witness to her best friend being unjustly sentenced to death by an oppressive regime, and watched helplessly as her mother abandoned her and her father in an attempt to satiate her lust for power. Morgan knew all too well the pain of a Juniyan life.
It was the cold blooded murder of her father at the hands of her mother and her mother’s lover that sent Morgan careening over the edge. She became a vessel of vengeance that day; an entity the world of Juniya would come to know intimately as the Dark Slayer. Those she held responsible for her father’s death would pay dearly. She vowed to dismantle the tyrannical regime of the Dark Realm, sending it crumbling into the abyss.
Yet, this was only just the beginning of her story. Struggling to save Juniya’s outcasts from the menacing claws of the Dark Realm, a strange new development had revealed a greater devastating truth. Morgan unknowingly had become host to an alien creature that granted her extraordinary new abilities. She was, in fact, an experimental prototype created by the Ginsigh of Malnocore for the sole purpose of saving their kind from total annihilation. As a Verse Walker, she was the first of her kind.
Morgan hadn’t even had enough time to properly process this shocking new development before she was hit with another quandary. A bounty hunter with an infamous reputation had been set upon her path. Logan was surprised to learn that the Dark Master himself demanded the Dark Slayer be brought before him alive and unharmed. An unusual request but Logan was a skilled professional. He would not fail.
Upon her capture Morgan was startled to learn that her childhood best friend had not perished in the Pura Citadel of her past as she had been led to believe. Marcus Kane had risen through the ranks of the Maluki and become the Dark Master, leader of the Dark Realm. Brought before him he presented Morgan with an ultimatum: join him or face a fate far worse than death.
The clock is ticking. Morgan must find a way to save the people of Juniya from a horrific fate while apprehensively awaiting the arrival of an alien species that threatens to turn her life inside out with chaos. Struggling with an array of conflicting emotions and trying to cope with feelings she had thought long since buried in the past, Morgan finds her world spiraling out of control. Her life has taken on a complexity of prophetic proportions. The same questions haunt Morgan’s thoughts over and over again. Will she be strong enough to survive the madness that threatens to consume her? Can she become the hero the people of Juniya deserve? Can she lend the necessary aid to save another species in need? More importantly...does she want to?
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.
