Product Description From the imagination behind the award-winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series comes a steampunk novella to a legend from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights.
Aladdin is a street-wise thief that finds himself under the tutelage of a world-renown illusionist. He is escorted deep into the deserts in search of a treasure beyond his wildest dreams, and discovers instead something far more valuable—a destiny.
Product Description A young, tormented priest must see those to be executed. It is a thankless job, one D'ata dreads. Nevertheless, he does it kindly and with compassion. He gives them a chance at eternal life, listening to their confessions and offering absolution before they go to the gallows. Tonight, however, nothing can prepare him for what he finds when he goes to the dungeons to see the last one, the mercenary—the murderer. On this night, he is forced to recount the design of his own torment and fate. His own redemption is at stake and the sins he'd tried so desperately to forget are laid naked before his grief-stricken eyes. When morning breaks, he has a decision to make... Set in fourteenth century France, it is an epic, two-sided tale, woven amidst the cataclysms of that magnificent and wretched time. Cramer is superb at taking your heart into her hands. Gripping and poignant, this story will surprise you, making you remember what perfect love and absolute hate truly feel like, for what is the cost of true freedom?

In the midst of this turmoil, Garrick's younger brother, Algernon, learns that his twin sister has run away from home in the company of a Kamerese drug dealer. Inspired and accompanied by Astrid, a young priestess rumored to be his sister's lesbian lover, Algernon undertakes a perilous journey into war-torn Kameron to find and rescue his wayward sister.

Product Description In the aftermath of the Kamerese Civil War, Cassie Velez and her affianced boyfriend, Jared Hohner, live as uneasy guests of King Alejo at his palace in Kameron City. Food shortages and a vitriolic press stir the passions of the Kamerese people, resulting in rioting and violence. Can Jared persuade the king to enact positive change and prevent another crisis?

Meanwhile, Kira and Algernon Ravenwood begin their long-anticipated public service among young women in the Tamarian capital of Marvic. Facing much uncertainty, outright hostility from the girls they’re trying to help and the men who exploit them, the twin siblings must work in close harmony in order to succeed. But threats from an assassin’s guild and relational discord threaten to unravel Kira’s aspirations, while Algernon struggles to affirm the authenticity of his ministerial calling.

Or will fatigue and the forbidden affection of Brenna Velez, his soon-to-be-bride, derail Garrick’s career? Brenna’s faith, crippled by guilt, is put to a supreme test as evil spirits torment her consciousness. Is she involved in a genuine spiritual battle, or is she going crazy? Will her struggle ruin her relationship with Garrick and wreck their wedding plans? Or, can Brenna learn to accept grace, forgive the people who mistreated her and marry the man she loves? All is revealed in Ceremonies and Celebrations, Book Four of the Deveran Conflict Series.
labmonkey said: Yea, "buyer" beware. I received a credit card statement with charges for four books (out of 70+, so not too bad) that were shown as free when I downloaded them. Amazon was quick to answer my e-mails and offer me a refund. Both reps that contacted me told me they escalated the issue with the appropriate people, so this is a known issue. I'm still weary, so I've taken screenshots of the more free "pricier" downloads.
That's very interesting. Are you sure the books were free when you ordered them? Did it ask for your credit card info when ordering? Did you get a confirmatory email that you purchased the book for $0.00? I've gotten over 100 of the free books and never had the problem of getting a charge for them.
Seems some free books are not free for the Kindle masses without prime by the time I get to some of the deals. I had the same issue where somehow I inadvertently purchased a book that was only free for prime. It was easy to get reversed. (thanks Amazon!)

It never asks for credit card info if you already have any on file. Further, I can't turn off one-click ordering for Kindle ebooks (though I can for physical goods). Anybody who is worried about it should open a new account without credit card info and use that.
That said, I've never been charged for a free ebook. There have been 3 that I accidentally bought. They were posted as free ebooks. By the time I got there they weren't free anymore but I accidentally clicked buy. As the others said, it's easy to return it for refund; you find the order and click return for refund. It asks why, and I choose "accidental purchase". I am immediately credited.
rangerxenos said: Amazon often has these books free for a limited time (or a pricing error), always be sure you check before you click to order! Exactly. Most don't stay free forever. I think some turn un-free after a certain amount of minutes/hours/days while others do so after a certain quantity of downloads. You have to act fast!
Here's two things to look for:
1. Where it says the price, if it's not free then it will have the blue Prime logo after saying "(read for free)". The blue logo is easy to spot at a glance. Depend on this.
2. The buy button usually (but not always) lists the price if it's not free anymore, saying "Buy for $1.99" instead of "Buy it now". Don't depend on this, but use it to rule out books more quickly.
I've been thinking of trying to create a UserJS (Opera's built-in Greasemonkey-like scripting) to highlight clues in green or red, or just to click Buy for me or close the window depending on price, but I'm not sure whether I'm too lazy to click stuff or too lazy to write a script.

I forgot to mention: Also look for this in the price line:
Kindle Price: $0.00 includes free wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet
That line is much longer than the line for Prime, so always look for that line to be closer to the Buy button before you click.
Note: These tips are only useful for people who find themselves getting charged for what they thought were free ebooks. If you're not making that mistake then these tips aren't for you. I have been collecting a lot of free ebooks and get careless sometimes, so these clues allow me to be efficient and quick while staying accurate.

Dr. Nick Valentine is a cynic who carries a load of guilt. Attorney Ross Donovan is a recovering alcoholic. The deeper Anna digs to discover who's behind the identity thefts, the higher the stakes. Finally, when her life is on the line, Anna finds that her determination to clear her name might have been a prescription for trouble."

The Cat Manual [Kindle Edition] Michael Ray Taylor
Editorial Reviews Review "This book offers a rare glimpse into the feline world. Learn, as your cat herself learned, how to properly present a gift, how to identify the 'sucker' in the room, the trick of increasing one's weight at will, and other invaluable lessons." --Brightdreamers Book Reviews
"Cats rule the world and we just rent it from them for a daily can of cat food. The Cat Manual explains how this came to be. I can't go into too much detail about this manual. Panzer keeps hiding my Kindle so I won't learn all the secrets of the Cat Empire. Panzer gives The Cat Manual four paws up, but he's not real happy that the cat secrets are out now." --Cats and Crime
Here's what Kindle readers in the U.K. are saying:
PattyMac - How refreshing to find a read that makes you laugh out loud! I am an unashamed cat-lover (or "sucker" as Cleo would say!) and from years of experience of being "owned" by cats I think that this book captures the very essence of feline psychology! My only regret is that the read was all too short - any chance of a lengthier sequel, Cleo et al? [Author's note: Look for the sequel in late summer!]
PhDer "PhDer" (FRINTON ON SEA, United Kingdom) - This book is really good, very funny and is written by somebody who knows cats inside out! If you have a cat you'll love it - it will make you laugh out loud in places. Its quite short - almost readable in one sitting, but it's a great book for cat lovers
Product Description A book of humorous advice written for cats, by cats. The author "discovered" the feline world's best-kept secret in a file hidden on his mother's computer by her cat, Cleo, and now shares it with humanity for the first time. Topics covered range from avoiding visits to the vet, to the artful display of captured prey, to getting in the way of a human trying to read anything, including this paragraph. Upon publication, Cleo denied authorship and hired a team of lawyers, all of whom have their claws out, but despite her best efforts the word is spreading: The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages. From the author of Cave Passages and Dark Life.
