Barnes & Nobles Freebie Friday Thread, and remember to check the comments for additional finds by others.

Freebies:
I'm bad. I've not any to share this week. Sorry.

Deals:
So, I've been stalking the bargain list on Amazon.  This is very, VERY dangerous for me.  But dang!  The deals!  And this is for the PRINTED books!

Now, I'm looking at Amazon.com for US.  I don't know if Amazon.UK has the same deals or not.
Note:  the deals are only for a limited number of books they have.  So if you want what I'm sharing, go get it now.  Check the price though, I can't guarantee it'll be there when you get there.

Amazon: The Kensei: A Lawson Vampire Novel
Goodreads Synopsis:
Meet Lawson. A cynical, wise-cracking vampire charged with protecting the Balance between vampires and humans, he is part cop, part spy, and part commando -- James Bond with fangs. Lawson mixes shrewd cunning with unmatched lethality to get his job done. He tries his best to dismantle conspiracies, dispatch bad guys, and live long enough to get home. In The Kensei, a battle-weary Lawson heads to Japan for a little rest and some advanced ninja training. But he no sooner steps off the plane than lands in the midst of a Yakuza turf war orchestrated by a shadowy figure known as the Kensei. With the help of Talya, a former KGB-assassin, Lawson must put a stop to the Kensei's organ trafficking networks, prevent the creation of an army of vampire-human hybrids, and save his own skin in the process.

John F. Merz has written an utterly exciting novel—urban, paranormal fantasy meets international, action-packed thriller.

Amazon: Lamentation (Psalms of Isaak, Book 1)
Goodreads Synopsis:
An ancient weapon has completely destroyed the city of Windwir.   From many miles away, Rudolfo, Lord of the Nine Forest Houses, sees the horrifying column of smoke rising.  He knows that war is coming to the Named Lands.

Nearer to the Devastation, a young apprentice is the only survivor of the city – he sat waiting for his father outside the walls, and was transformed as he watched everyone he knew die in an instant.

Soon all the Kingdoms of the Named Lands will be at each others' throats, as alliances are challenged and hidden plots are uncovered.

This remarkable first novel from an award-winning short fiction writer will take readers away to a new world – an Earth so far in the distant future that our time is not even a memory; a world where magick is commonplace and great areas of the planet are impassable wastes. But human nature hasn’t changed through the ages: War and faith and love still move princes and nations.

Amazon: The Moonlight Brigade: A Millennial Novel
Goodreads Synopsis:
When a vital member of the British millennials’ mission goes missing after an intense firefight with Nazi-supported vampire hunters, Mors, the mission’s powerful leader, vows to discover the truth behind his disappearance. The perilous search takes Mors from Berlin to his own ancient stomping grounds—Rome.

Mors was once one of the Roman Republic’s greatest generals—until his rebirth as a vampire under unprecedented circumstances—and when he sees Italy under Fascism, he forms a new mission: to return the country to a true republic, and perhaps guide its people into the light himself.

But it will take collaboration with human partisans to achieve his new dream, a dangerous alliance that most vampires would never attempt, made even more unstable by his growing love for the partisans’ beautiful and brave organizer, Giulia. As the Allies prepare to invade Italy, and hunters and Nazi-collaborators start to encircle him, Mors’s quest for vengeance, intense passion, and hunger for power force him to confront the demons of both his past and present. A very different war is about to begin.
