The Last Praetorian by Mike Smith

If you want something to read for free, this is an excellent novel that can be downloaded free from ibooks.  Epic SF with a socio-polictical system loosely based on the Roman Empire.  For a self-published novel it is comparitively well written, if clumsy in places and definitely worth a try if you enjoy SF.
Full of heroic adventure, betrayals and general space-born conflict, along with political intrigue.  If you like the kind of extensive activity descriptions you often get in this genre you'll find it a definite page-turner, with many quirky scenes that add a touch of fun to the story and are revealing of the main characters.  There are lots of interesting twists and turns to the story and this is just book one of the Redemption Triology.
