Today’s Featured Kindle Book of the Day, Shade, by Marilyn Peake, is regularly $3.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars based on 11 customer reviews.

Genre: Young Adult / Mystery

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.

This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.

Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.

2) Offer herself as a sacrifice in exchange for his life …

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE HER?

Book One: Rippler

When Samantha Ruiz turns invisible in front of team mates while rafting, she knows something’s wrong. According to her knowledgeable friend Will, she’s got a rare genetic disorder. Fearing a lifetime sentence as a lab-rat, Sam wants to keep her ability secret. But she also wants to know if there’s a connection between dark Nazi experiments on others like her and her own mother’s death eight years earlier. At the same time that Sam is sleuthing, she’s falling hard for Will. And soon, she’ll have to choose between keeping her secrets hidden and keeping Will safe.

Book Two: Chameleon

Sam’s troubles are growing. The crush who kissed her seems to have changed his mind. Her BFF thinks Sam is in an abusive relationship. And the evil geneticist who wanted Sam dead now wants her ALIVE. When Sam learns of Helmann’s Nazi-like plan to re-establish a Thousand-Year Reign, she’s determined to fight him. Along with Will and Mickie, Sam flees to France to meet Sir Walter–their best hope for stopping Helmann’s brave new world. But someone invisible follows her to Paris, and now Sam must figure out how to hide from an enemy she can’t even see.

Book Three: Unfurl

Against all expectations, Sam has survived attacks by two of Helmann’s deadliest assassins. She’s alive, but she’s far from safe. Helmann is planning a second Holocaust and wants Sam to play a starring role. Will, now separated from Sam by an ocean, seeks a way to prevent Helmann’s apocalypse. Along with Sir Walter and Mickie, Will plays a deadly game sneaking into Geneses’ facilities, discovering unsettling clues as to Helmann’s plans. The clock ticks down as Will and Sam discover just how much they must be willing to sacrifice to stop Helmann. UNFURL, the powerful conclusion to The Ripple Series, will leave fans breathless.

About the Author:

louis kirby

 

 

Louis Kirby is an internationally recognized neurologist who specializes in neurodegenerative diseases, chiefly Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Throughout his life he has always been drawn to writing. While in medical school he published two of his stories, one landing him in hot water with the Dean of Medicine.

While in clinical practice, Dr. Kirby founded Pivotal Research Centers in Phoenix, a research facility that specialized in human drug testing. Pivotal rapidly grew into one of the nation’s largest medical research centers of its kind. During this time, Dr. Kirby served as principal investigator on nearly 400 clinical trials. He frequently gave presentations at national and international conferences on drug development and consulted for the government and the pharmaceutical industry.

After selling Pivotal Research Centers to a publicly held company, he served for a year as Chief Medical Officer for Provista Life Sciences, a biotech firm working with Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Kirby currently serves on the scientific advisory boards of the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center, and the Arizona Alzheimer’s Association. He is a scientific advisor for several companies, including the Critical Path Institute, a non-profit organization working with the FDA in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. He consults for biotech and pharmaceutical companies on a part time basis and regularly speaks at scientific gatherings. These activities still leave him plenty of time to research and write his next book.

Dr. Kirby enjoys the wide-open skies (and dry heat) of Phoenix with his wife and daughter
