Free Books!

22 Dec

FREE BOOKS!  (And, now I’ve got your attention, FREE BOOKS!)

Hi, Everyone

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

As a treat to my readers, and hopefully new fans, I’ve put a handful of books – all the first books in ongoing series or trilogies – up for free, between 24th and 26th December.  Check out the cover blurbs and details below, then download for free from Amazon!

(Please feel free to share this post as widely as possible)

The Empires Corps (The Empire’s Corps I)

You Should Never Speak Truth To Power…

The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting…

Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire’s loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They’re Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.

The battle to save the Empire starts here.

Ark Royal (Ark Royal I)

If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

-Royal Navy Motto

Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy.  But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull.  She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. 

But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.  Ark Royal and her mismatched crew must go on the offensive, buying time with their lives  And yet, with a drunkard for a Captain, an over-ambitious first officer and a crew composed of reservists and the dregs of the service, do they have even the faintest hope of surviving …

… And returning to an Earth which may no longer be there?

There is a large sample of the text right here, then you can buy it from Amazon here.

Storm Front (Twilight of the Gods I)

In 1941, Adolf Hitler didn’t declare war on the United States.  Now, in 1985, the Third Reich stretching from the coast of France to the icy wastes of Eastern Russia, appears supremely powerful.  With a powerful force of nuclear warheads and the finest military machine on Earth, there is no hope for freedom for the billions who groan under its rule.  Adolf Hitler’s mad dreams have come to pass.

And yet, all is not well in the Reich.  The cold war with the United States and the North Atlantic Alliance is destroying the Reich’s economy, while a savage insurgency in South Africa – a war the Reich cannot win and dares not lose – is sapping its military strength.  And, while the Reich Council struggles to find a way to save the Reich from its own weaknesses, a young German girl makes a discovery that will shake the Reich to its core.

But the Reich Council will not go quietly into the night …

Outside Context Problem (Outside Context Problem I)

When a UFO crashes near a top secret military base, the American Government realises that aliens have been spying on the human race for years.  But even as they rush to unlock the technological secrets in the alien craft, the aliens launch the first step in their plan to invade the Earth and enslave the human race.  With a giant mothership approaching the planet and the inhabitants promising peace and plenty, humanity must defeat a vastly superior foe with uncertain motives or lose its freedom forever.

On one side, a powerful alien force…

On the other side, a divided humanity…

The battle for Earth has begun.

The Zero Blessing (The Zero Enigma III)

Caitlyn Aguirre should have been a magician.  Her family certainly expected her to be a magician.  But by the time she reached her twelfth birthday, Caitlyn hadn’t even managed to cast a single spell!  In desperation, her parents send her – and her magical sisters – to Jude’s Sorcerous Academy, her last best chance to discover her powers.

But as she struggles to survive her classes without a single spell to her name, Caitlyn starts to uncover an ancient mystery that may prove the key to her true powers …

… If she lives long enough to find it.

    Hi Christopher,

    Thanks for the email – I have everything you have released in both e-book and Audiobook, huge fan 😊 I wish you and your Family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – look forward to seeing what you bring us in 2022 😃 Take care of yourself and thank you for all your wonderful books.

    I still remember the first time I read the Ark Royal series – it is one of my favourite Mil Sci-Fi series, I just love how it flows and the ‘Universe Building’ – the different races and sectors and how they join.

    Your concept of space and space travel is something I always thought was just so cool 😊 Funnily enough, I am not a huge fantasy reader, but I do dabble, and I have loved every one of your fantasy series, especially Zero Enigma – I really love series in which there is that character that is so different to the rest. I remember reading a story by Weis & Hickman years ago about a prince born with no magical ability at all in a world in which everyone had power – it was a fascinating series. This series has similarities, but you have taken it to a whole new level. Thanks so much Christopher, sorry, I could spend all day going on about your books 😊

    Have a wonderful Christmas with your Family,

    All the best,

    Cheers from Aus, Jas Pennock

    Merry Christmas Chris.

    I have a question, if you don’t mind. Does this form of publicity work? Does it really attract new readers? Do you have any data on the subject?

      It’s hard to say, to the point the best answer I can give is ‘sometimes’. Still, it’s worth trying.

    I love your writing and religiously but your books on the day of release, I find all your series totally engaging.
    Also, I think the prices of your books are the best value for money of any author, Although I have a Kindle unlimited membership, I’m very happy to buy all of your books at such a reasonable price.
    I sincerely hope that your health troubles are behind you and I’m looking forward to many more years of reading your books.
    Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
