Your Sci Fi & Fantasy Reading List – 1/23

Last Man Standing
Craig A. Falconer
$0.99

A pulsating sci-fi thriller from the author of the global blockbuster Not Alone — perfect for fans of Andy Weir and A.G. Riddle.


I wasn’t supposed to survive.

The station has been hit. Everyone around me is dead.

I have 11 hours of life support left and no way of contacting Earth.

I’m alone. I’m stranded. I’m desperate.

But I’m alive.


The more of the station I explore, the surer I get that this was no accident. Someone did this, and I don't think they're finished yet.

Making it home feels like an impossible task, but I'm not just fighting for my own life.

I have to protect my family — whatever it takes.

And as long as I’m breathing, this isn't over.

Because whoever did this almost pulled it off… but they made one big mistake:

They left the wrong man standing…

The Bone Master
Debbie Iancu-Haddad
$1.99

Kaii Haku has lived his whole life in the shadow of his cruel father's magic.
Rebelling against his father- the Bone Master- by drinking and sleeping around was Kaii's main occupation for years.
But when one of his best friends is kidnapped by pirates, Kaii embarks on a perilous rescue mission with two retired pleasure house workers, a shy teen bookworm, and a feisty girl from the pirate crew.
The journey will take Kaii and his allies far from Achten Tan, to a sea ruled by dangerous conditions and ships that travel on the backs of monsters.
For the first time in his life, he has the power to make a difference, but if he wields his emerging bone magic to save the girl he loves, he risks losing himself and becoming like his father – a man who tried to kill him.

This is the second book in the Sands of Achten Tan series, but can be read as a standalone. It contains a complete adventure and no cliffhangers.
