A bit of everything!!
- thedavecorpLv 65 years ago
Go to Amazon.com and search:
"Lost from Atlantis Book 1" - Book 2 is going to be out in the next 6 weeks or so, Book 3 is written and in editing and will be out sometime in the next few months.
"Death by MURDER David Lindsay" - you have to search that way or it won't come up. There's lots of sex in that one.
And the best part is, for now, they're all FREE. You can read them with Kindle Unlimited - if you don't have Kindle Unlimited Google how to get a free trial, and all those books are free. They can be read online, with a free Kindle phone app, or on a Kindle.

Kissed by an Angel - Elizabeth Chandler!! I really loved this book!!!
Here is a summary of it: When her boyfriend, Tristan, died, Ivy thought she'd lost everything, even her faith in angels. But now she's discovered that he's her guardian angel -- his presence so strong that she can feel the touch of his hand, the beat of his heart. Ivy needs Tristan now more than ever because he knows she's in terrible danger. Only Ivy's guardian angel can save her now that his killer is after her.
But if Tristan rescues Ivy, his mission on earth will be finished, and he must leave her behind forever. Will saving Ivy mean losing her just when he's finally reached her again?

you'd love the House of Night Novels by P.C. and Kristen Cast.... they are better written than the Twilight books and bit shorter lol it is bout vamps but its different than you'd think... its strangely refreshing and just so you know i HATE fantasy and that kind of thing but this series was one of the best series i've ever read
i also really like the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson! i swear these were the best books i've ever read...they are a bit lengthy but its so good that you can barely tell that they're over 300 pages! <3 once again its kinda fantasy love story but i LOVED and ADORED it! :D its bout kids that were taken when they were little kids and doctors injected bird DNA in them so they had wings...i know its sounds crazy mental and stupid but its REALLY good and they're normal teens it just that they can fly... :) its bout the adventures they go through trying to stay together alive and get out and stay out of the lab they call the school! its amazing really :) the main character(s) is Maximum (15 year old girl that is sassy with an aditude towards grown ups lol -she really makes the story and stuff hilarious... like with a gun to her head she makes this witty and smart butt remark and you just die laughing! lmao and she's tough and strong and the leader of the flock which is what they call their group of about 7 or eight) and her best friend fang (a quiet but tough and hott guy that's 15 as well but he's just a bit older than her i believe) who she counts on for everything... there's a blind guy that you cant even tell is blind thats 15 too and a little kid around 8 that's his best friends and they love to blow stuff up and fart and stuff lik that lol and they make it hilarious and there's this 6 year old that is just so cute but if you really got to kno her she's just like Max only younger more girly and she can read minds! best story line ever! must read for summer!
and lastly the Gallagher Girls series by ally carter... teen spy girl with typical problems bout guys even though she goes to an all girls school of spys! ... the first one is I'd Tell You I Love You but Then I'd have to kill You and the second is Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy (better than the first one in my opinion) and the last one that comes out this month is Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover... second best books i've ever read :D
All those books are filled with romance and lots of action and suspense! <3 :)
HOpe I helped... oh and Rachel Hawthorne, Emma Harrison, Stephaine Meyer (the Host), and Sarah Dessen are great teen authors too! Awesome books but there's too many to write down! lol :D but these are just romance... not a lot of action except for in The Host :)

Amulet of Samarkand
The Golem's Eye
This is the description for the first book (Amulet of Samarkand):
Presenting a thrilling new voice in children's literature-a witty, gripping adventure story featuring a boy and his not-so-tame djinni. Nathaniel is a young magician's apprentice, taking his first lessons in the arts of magic. But when a devious hotshot wizard named Simon Lovelace ruthlessly humiliates Nathaniel in front of everyone he knows, Nathaniel decides to kick up his education a few notches and show Lovelace who's boss. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all: summoning the all-powerful djinni, Bartimaeus. But summoning Bartimaeus and controlling him are two different things entirely, and when Nathaniel sends the djinni out to steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand, Nathaniel finds himself caught up in a whirlwind of magical espionage, murder, blackmail, and revolt. Set in a modern-day London spiced with magicians and mayhem, this extraordinary, funny, pitch-perfect thriller will dazzle the myriad fans of Artemis Fowl and the His Dark Materials trilogy. And with the rights sold in more than a dozen countries, and a major motion picture in the works, the Bartimaeus trilogy is on the fast track to becoming a classic.
or the Inheirtance Trilogy:
This is the description of the first book (Eragon):
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands....Source(s): plot synopsis from barnesandnoble.com
