Summary

An outback vacation in Western Australia in the scorching summer of 1955 quickly turns to tragedy when an American family crash their vehicle during a sudden storm. Ten year old Jake is the only survivor who has to endure the heat and isolation of the vast Kimberley region. In search of help, he stumbles across a tribe of remote Aborigines, the Elder of which leads Jake to a hidden sacred cavern. Buried deep within the cavern is an ancient unearthly relic which has become part of the local Dreamtime. 
Almost six decades later, a budding journalist named Bradley Chong is investigating the mysterious appearance of young boy found wandering in the Australian Outback. Mystified, Brad travels to the remote town of Halls Creek where events unfold that even Brad could not have imagined. Ignored by the local police and then hunted by federal agents, Brad is assisted by some newly-found friends who join forces to save the boy and fulfil his destiny.

    'Look at her - she's Hill Clan. Even the Matyrani don't like them ...'
    
    Isaura - little is known about her race, but much is whispered. Born to refugees, she grows up enduring racism and superstition within a community that fears her. She has few friends, and those she treasures. Trapped, she longs for escape to a different life.
    
    Escape is only the beginning of her troubles. Having fled an invading army with her friends, Isaura is faced with heinous choices in order to survive. Secrets from her past emerge to torment her and threaten to destroy all she holds dear. Her struggles forge a bond with an ancient power - a power which may transform or consume her. Old hatreds and superstitions are renewed and at her most vulnerable she learns the true nature of those around her.
    
    Her only hope lies in a foreign land - a land rich in tradition; ruled by three powerful clans. A land with a history marked by warfare; where magic as we know it does not exist. Instead what is here, in abundance, is a more primal power.
    
    Survival carries a high price. Welcome to Altaica.

    War has come to Discworld ... again. 
    And, to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers around the small, arrogantly fundamentalist duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its unrelenting aggressiveness. A year ago, Polly Perks's brother marched off to battle, and Polly's willing to resort to drastic measures to find him. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and -- aided by a well-placed pair of socks -- sets out to join this man's army. Since a nation in such dire need of cannon fodder can't afford to be too picky, Polly is eagerly welcomed into the fighting fold—along with a vampire, a troll, an Igor, a religious fanatic, and two uncommonly close "friends." It would appear that Polly "Ozzer" Perks isn't the only grunt with a secret. But duty calls, the  battlefield beckons. And now is the time for all good ... er ... "men" to come to the aid of their country.

    An aging wizard and his apprentice venture into a world where magic has died, hoping to save it before the same fate befalls their ownJaldis does not believe it at first. When the old wizard—blind, tongueless, able to see and speak through magic alone—peers into the Void between dimensions, he sees something terrible: a world where magic is dead, and whose inhabitants scream for someone to rescue them. Such a place must be studied, for if it is possible to kill magic, then that terrible fate could threaten his own world, too. With the help of his apprentice, Rhion, the wizard prepares for the treacherous crossing. To make the journey, they must withstand the hatred that their own world has for magic—a powerful force that the ignorant would wipe out if they could. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barbara Hambly, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
