Thirteen thrillers from quality independent authors for just 99 cents - it's a heck of a deal for multiple hours of entertainment.

For example, Toni Dwiggins' book, Volcano Watch, is included in this bundle and it normally costs $3.99 on a standalone basis. She spins a pretty tight tale filled with a lot of research that doesn't bore you to tears, gets you into the heart and mind of the main character, and has you feel real emotion as the characters lose their loved ones and their possessions. What I really liked in Volcano Watch was the hard left turn she took on the "whodunit" aspect of the book, as it was not something you can typically figure out as in other books about halfway through.

M.P. McDonald's book, No Good Deed, was highly recommended on one of the "What Are You Reading on Your Kindle" informal polls, so I tried out the free sample on my Kindle, enjoyed it, then bought the full book; this book also normally costs $3.99 on a standalone basis. The author does an excellent job of having you relate to the main character and I think I had just about every range of emotion possible while reading this book, and I distinctly remember at 62% of the way through the Kindle version feeling a little depressed because the main character was depressed, elation because the main character was elated, etc.; this was a consistent happening throughout the book. To me, anytime the author can literally grab you and make you feel as if you are playing the role of the main character is a good thing. She also made me sit back and think about what is going on in the world of our anti-terrorism policies. Prior to reading this book, I had one set of preconceived notions of what is acceptable or not for those labeled as enemy combatants; about a third of the way through I found myself rethinking my own idea of what is the right thing to do. From the plot lines, getting into the head of the character, and the overall writing style I found I didn't want to put this book down - I thought about it for quite some time after finishing it!

Bottom line to me is this thirteen book compilation is an excellent value: I certainly received as much - and probably more - value and entertainment out of this book than most of the "major publisher" authors, and you will, also.
