All new ebooks for my Nook this week.

Dirty Little Angels
Dirty Little AngelsFrom Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses' lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses' twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

Doc Sidhe
Doc SidheFrom Olympic kickboxer Harris Greene's career has just self-destructed, and both his manager and his fiance, Gaby, have dumped him. While looking for Gaby, he interrupts a bizarre trio as they are kidnapping her, and he is hurled into another, very weird, universe. His only hope is Doc Sidhe, this Art Deco universe's greatest champion of justice.

The Judge: The Coranite Chronicles (Volume 1)

Darek Wayker, an innocent delivery boy, is the first suspect...and the first to be sentenced to death. Aided by his friends, Darek escapes the clutches of the government and flees to a distant world. But the world is nothing like he imagined. Monsters lurk at every step and all signs of civilized life have mysteriously vanished. With no way off the planet, Darek loses all hope. But when he finds two others who are also stranded there--the reckless heroine called Azura and the cold-blooded assassin named Sorren--they set off on a journey across the desolate land. Together, they must battle terrifying beasts, incite a revolution, survive a horde of wrathful spirits, and uncover a plot so frightening that it will change the fate of the universe...forever. A story packed with action, suspense, comedy and mystery, The Judge is an intense thrill ride from start to finish!
