So far in the Ender series, I've read “Ender's Game”, “Speaker for the Dead”, “Xenocide”, and this book. I've thoroughly enjoyed them all.

I liked the different spin it puts on science fiction: The narrator is a teenage girl.

Starts out slow, then picks up into a very interesting read in a currently popular genre (Mystic Religious Secrets). The first of what looks to be an enjoyable series. It recounts the beginning of the Knights Templar and their doings in Jerusalem.

Most folks don't realise that there is a series of “Wizard of Oz” books. I read many of them as a child, and I'm re-reading them again as an adult, to see what an adult perspective does to them. Besides, it was one of those free e-books. :-)
