Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known. In Maine, she crosses paths with the dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, and something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she begins to uncover long-buried pack secrets—secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear—Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey, or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?

It is 1894, and the news of a Transylvanian nobleman’s death at the hands of a certain Professor Van Helsing is the talk of London. Unsatisfied at the acquittal of the professor, Mycroft Holmes asks Sherlock to investigate what truly led to the deaths of Lucy Westenra and the mysterious aristocrat. The newspapers are full of inconsistencies and wild supernatural theories, and as Holmes digs deeper, he suspects that those hailed as heroes are not what they seem.

The Throne of Amenkor Trilogy omnibus brings together The Skewed Throne, The Cracked Throne, and The Vacant Throne for the first time. One young girl holds the fate of a city in her hands. If she fails, it spells her doom—and the end of her world. Twice in the history of the city of Amenkor, the White Fire had swept over the land. Over a thousand years ago it came from the east, covering the entire city, touching everyone, leaving them unburned—but bringing madness in its wake, a madness that only ended with the death of the ruling Mistress of the city. Five years ago the Fire came again, and Amenkor has been spiraling into ruin ever since. The city's only hope rests in the hands of a young girl, Varis, who has taught herself the art of survival and has been trained in the ways of the assassin. Venturing deep into the heart of Amenkor, Varis will face her harshest challenges and greatest opportunities. And it is here that she will either find her destiny—or meet her doom.

Amenkor, city of legend―at its height, Amenkor was a center of wealth and culture. But a millennium ago, the city was caught in the White Fire, a force that swept across the land spreading madness, drought, famine, and disease in it wake. Now the Dredge―the bustling market street that snaked between the slums and the prosperous center of the city―marked the dividing line between plenty and poverty, safety and peril. Left a homeless orphan as a very young child, Varis learned to survive in the Dredge. And when the White Fire blasted through Amenkor for the second time, Varis―along with the entire city―was trapped in the overwhelming blaze of power. Though the current Mistress continued to reign from the Skewed Throne, Amenkor's decline escalated after the second Fire. For Varis, though, the chance to escape her hopeless existence unexpectedly presented itself when a guardsman of the Skewed Throne named Erick―one of the elite assassins known as Seekers―enlisted her to work for him. Because she had a gift for "Seeing" the true nature of people, Varis soon realized something was wrong, that some of those marked for death were not guilty. But how could the Mistress be mistaken? Trust in the all-knowing, all-seeing justice and wisdom of their ruler was the foundation of Amenkor's society. Then, one fateful day, Varis claimed a life that took her beyond the law. Suddently there was nowhere safe for her in the Dredge. There was only one place left to flee to―into the heart of Amenkor itself.

"In class the nuns hinted at the same thing. What we learned from the Baltimore Catechism was that 'self-gratification, ' whatever that meant, exactly, was a sin against the sixth commandment, 'Thou shalt not commit adultery, ' and the tenth commandment, 'Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife.' It was in fact, one of the deadly, cardinal sins: LUST. I tried with all my strength to not give in to temptation, but failed again and again. "This went to prove that I was weak." --- Foreshadowing the turmoil of Hating Olivia, Max Zajack is in love with the wrong female yet again. This time, however, he's only twelve years old and he has to contend with the additional challenges of confrontational parents, Catholic guilt and the looming threat of adulthood. "Every kid feels it, every kid knows it, so the story shakes us and sends us straight back into the arms of an irreversible nostalgia - and that's why Mark SaFranko is a great American writer." --- Tom Buron, introduction to 'Blossoms and Blood'

Integrity is a word which was uttered on nightly newscasts for months after an anonymous but calculating White House intern introduced herself to the President. Integrity is a word emblazoned on the front page of every law enforcement manual in the country and it’s a concept affirmed by every individual who ever accepts a position of public trust. Its also a notion which is the focus of The Powder, Their Paper and Pools of Blood. This novel is a first person account of a DEA Agent, initially an honorable young man with noble intentions to pursue a vocation in federal law enforcement. As his career progresses, he permits himself to become seduced by the enviable lifestyles of those he investigates. He begins by pocketing purposeless trinkets and trivial amounts of money, rationalizing his behavior each and every time he consummates an act that he recognizes to be morally repugnant. The ease by which the Agent, Mark Connors, consummates his thefts nourishes his appetite for more lucrative and exciting acts of dishonesty until he is a witness to the most deplorable act one human being can do to another. The Powder, Their Paper and Pools of Blood is a dark and captivating slice of fiction which includes accurate information about real tactics employed by the agents and offices of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Matt thinks this is a very bad idea indeed but what the Supreme Ogress Sasha wants the Supreme Ogress Sasha gets, and soon Matt's recruiting a motley crew of Morris dancers and class warriors to infiltrate the Dungeonmaster's private army. Mark Ramsden's uniquely transgressive take on the comedy thriller has never worked better than in this deplorably funny, disconcertingly exciting and oddly heartfelt romp - where PG Wodehouse meets Dennis Wheatley in the piercing parlour.
