Here is one I recently read that I really enjoyed. I gravitate towards action and horror.
The Trinity Signs

Good versus evil always seems to keep my attention. I can easily see this as a movie. What others are you all reading? I'm looking for something similar in theme, but i like the "indie" price tag of below $3.

Mine is a crystal-punk fantasy (the genre is about to take off) with a lot of action.

The Brightest Light

Hey! My book reached #9 in free Action/Adventure on a promotion day yesterday-- back to the dungeon of paid now, but I think you might enjoy. Basically, a group of assassins on a boat with occasional jokes.

Farce (The Farce Chronicles)

Good luck with your search!

Try The Fire At Falcon Point. It is free to borrow with Amazon Prime. Lots of good vs. evil stuff and a team of protagonists fighting the good fight.

Check this one out.

Horror, action, violence, etc. etc.

It's a vampire book by someone who apparently hates vampires (without the jocularity of 'You Suck!'):

Here's some kick butt action thriller: Memoria (a dystopian thriller) It's sort of noir murder mystery technothriller, if you know what I mean :) with some tough baddies and lone heroes - real guys' stuff! :)

Vette Head's Not Dead follows some former intelligence officers (male and female), later in life as they test their old skills against a neo-nazi militia group, deep in the New Hampshire and Maine woods.

If you like anime and superheroes, try my novel I Am Become Death and its new sequel, This God, I (I Am Become Death).

Bad Medicine (R. Barry King) has several uniqie settings; jungles, beaches, caves. Nothing graphic. Lot's of Native American lore ALA Tony Hillerman. It's an action/adventure you can't put down... It's on AMAZON.

If you dig vigilante / revenge style action novels similar to Brian Garfield's Death Wish, check out my novel, Killer Instincts.

A story inspired by the author's hometown back in the early days.- A journey to love, hate, and racial prejudice combined with mystery, suspense, action, drama and adventure.

I only recently got into the reading the action genre (love a good action movie but never thought reading it could measure up) and the first "indie" I read was Avenger of Blood. Not sure what the one reviewer was talking about but it's a bit heavy on character/drama, possibly why I liked it, and had some riveting action pieces.

Check out A Life More Grotesque. 4 bucks on kindle... travel/horror... fairly mild beginning but then picks up speed and becomes a fast paced thriller. A Life More Grotesque
