Another KU Series- The Last Brigade

KU Free for 3 months?

I just found out that some lucky Amazon customers are being offered a really special deal until the end of July - an extended 3 month free trial for Kindle Unlimited. I'm really not sure who it's being offered to - I think it may be only people who've never tried KU before. To check if you are being offered this you can click on the regular Kindle Unlimited Deals page and see what the offer is. (Amazon is not showing me this offer on my account, but a family member is being offered it, so now of course I feel like the black sheep of Amazon customers.*sob*)

While we are on the topic of KU, here is another great series that KU subscribers can read for free...

The Last Brigade

The Last Brigade by William Alan Webb is a best-selling epic series of Military SF set 50 years in the future, after the Collapse of the USA. The first book is Standing the Final Watch. Here's the blurb:
America might be dead, but Nick Angriff will kick your ass to resurrect her.

Lt. General Nick Angriff has spent his adult life protecting family and country from a world of terrorism spinning out of control. On the battlefield, off the grid, in clandestine special task forces and outright black ops, Angriff never wavers from duty. But when a terror attack on Lake Tahoe kills his family, he’s left with only the corrosive acid of revenge… that is, until a hated superior officer reveals the deepest of all secret operations. Against the day of national collapse, a heavily-armed military unit rests in cryogenic storage, to be awakened when needed, and Angriff is named its commander.

Fifty years later he wakes to find the USA destroyed and predatory warlords roaming the ruins. Stalked by assassins bent on seizing his command for their own purposes, Angriff has to prepare for war while avoiding murder.

Because the only wall still shielding survivors from slavery and death are the men and women of The Last Brigade.

There are three more books in this series so far: Standing Before the Storm, Standing at the Edge, and the newly released Standing Before Hell's Gate, and they are all on Kindle Unlimited.

Standing Before Hell's Gate, which is the fourth book of The Last Brigade, also kicks off a new trilogy! I think I can include the blurb without spoiling readers:
It was all going so well for Nick Angriff and the 7th Cavalry… until it wasn’t.

When Angriff awakened in a world where America no longer existed, he vowed to resurrect his beloved country. Put in command of Operation Overtime and all U.S. forces in the post-American world, he assumed that everyone under his command wanted the same thing.

But he was wrong. And now the forces arrayed against him have the power to crush freedom once and for all.

With all of the twists, turns, deceptions, and action you’ve come to expect from a series that one reviewer called “the best I've ever read,” Standing Before Hell’s Gate begins the Showdown Trilogy, where Nick confronts his enemies in a final fight for control of Operation Overtime, while the rebirth of the American Republic hangs in the balance.

Killing Hitler's Reich: The Battle for Austria 1945

By the way, here's some very exciting news from the very prolific William Alan Webb:
I also have a massive non-fiction book coming out in September. This is the definitive book on the Battle for Austria in 1945, topping out around 300,000 words. It's an expensive hardback, but the quality is first-rate and it's currently on sale for about one third off in pre-order. I can guarantee that nothing like it has ever been written in English.
Serious Military and World War II history buffs should check it out and think about pre-ordering - when he says it's expensive he's not kidding, and the pre-order discount is substantial.

Here's the description:
In the dying days of World War Two, when the fate of nations was being decided by the triumvirate of Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Josef Stalin, Hitler’s Austrian homeland provided a scenic backdrop for the last stand of Army Group South.

Killing Hitler’s Reich, The Battle For Austria 1945, is the history of the bloody Battle for Austria in 1945.

Austria’s fate held major ramifications for postwar Europe and the entire free world, yet there is no complete account of the campaign written in English. Given the scale of the fighting and the scope of the consequences, this book fills a major gap in the literature of World War Two.

On VE Day Army Group South listed 450,000 men still under arms in four armies. It was this massive force that made General Dwight Eisenhower change the entire focus of American ground operations to cut off Germans from retreating into the National Redoubt.

Moreover, it was Austria not Berlin, that proved to be the graveyard of the Waffen SS. No less than 15 of Himmler’s divisions ended the war there.

And as the German war effort disintegrated into chaos, high ranking Nazis fled the dying Reich through Austria and into Italy. Some made it, many didn’t. Killing Hitler’s Reich follows the chase and capture of some of the most notorious, such as Himmler’s Second in Command, Ernst Kaltenbrunner.

Long overlooked by historians, Killing Hitler’s Reich finally places this critical campaign in its proper historical place.

That's it for this weekend - have a great one!

Favorite Book Series - KU edition

Kindle Unlimited Series to Binge On

There's a pretty good Kindle Unlimited deal for new subscribers this month - get 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for only $9.99 (offer is good until the end of July). That's basically a get 3 months for the price of one deal.
The nice thing about Kindle Unlimited is that if a series is on KU you can binge-read it straight through. Wouldn't it be nice if someone *coughmecough* could recommend some great book series on KU? Well, here you go - these are my personal favorites so give them a try!

The Hidden Truth

This is a fantastic alt-history SF YA thriller series by Physicist Hans G. Schantz - my review of the first book sums up why I love it:
The Hidden Truth is different, it's interesting, it's highly readable. It's a clean, exciting read that will have you thinking, and I recommend it to both teens and adults
Here's the blurb:
They'll do anything to hide the truth.
When high school student Peter Burdell uncovers a subtle clue in a dusty book buried deep in a forgotten Appalachian library, he realizes someone altered history. Who's been lying, and why?
His discovery lands Peter in the cross hairs of the deadly Cabal whose Deep State agents changed the past to control the present, so they can rule the future. Aided by family and friends, Peter races against the odds to expose the conspiracy and uncover the answer to the most important question of his life: What is The Hidden Truth?

There are three books in this series so far: The Hidden Truth, A Rambling Wreck, and The Brave and the Bold, and they are all on Kindle Unlimited.

Amy Lynn

My review tagline for this exciting series by US Navy vet Jack July is "An Action Hero That Captures The Heart" - it's about a sweet rural Southern girl who grows up to be an international assassin. A unique take on the genre, it's a series that will capture your heart while trying to induce a myocardial infarction.

The books in this series are Amy Lynn, Amy Lynn: Golden Angel, Amy Lynn, The Lady Of Castle Dunn, Amy Lynn, Into the Fire, and Amy Lynn, Hatchet.

Paxton Locke

This is a really fun urban fantasy series about "son of a witch" Paxton Locke, who talks to ghosts and has unresolved mommy issues. As I said in my review, he's my "new favorite paranormal paladin since Harry Dresden".
The books in this urban fantasy series are Fade, Night's Black Agents, and Come, Seeling Night.

Daniel Humphreys, the author, has another series that zombie fans devour - Z-Day. The first book is not on Kindle Unlimited but the two sequels are. The books in the Z-Day series are A Place Outside The Wild (NOT on KU), A Place Called Hope, and A Place For War.

These books (except for A Place Outside The Wild ) are free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. You can get a Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial OR you can sign up for 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for only $9.99 (the $9.99 deal is only available through July 31).

New Release: Justice on Trial by Mollie Hemingway & Carrie Severino

Instant Bestseller!

Congratulations to Mollie Hemingway & Carrie Severino for their book Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court which hit #1 on Amazon Bestseller lists as soon as it was released! This is despite the media's obvious attempt to snub and ignore the book, as well as the entire topic of Kavanaugh's kafkaesque public ordeal, the memoery of which is seared indelibly on the public's hippocampi.

Here's the blurb:
In this definitive deep dive into the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, two women with extraordinary behind-the-scenes access—The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway and Judicial Crisis Network senior counsel Carrie Severino—reveal what really happened and explore what the bitterly divisive hearings mean for the future of the Court and the battle for the soul of America.

In related New Release news, Matt Margolis, another fearless chronicler of the Left's recent history, has a new book coming out: Trumping Obama will be released on July 30 and can be pre-ordered now.
