What do critics and readers say? 
"Not only is it very smoothly written, but the author has a cherishable sense of humour. His balancing of character impact against non-stop action is just glorious... Hungry Gods is NOT just your ordinary 'SPLASH!! BAM!! ##*** POW!!' comic event. It's really, really good (and a rereader)." -- Mallory Heart Reviews  
"[A] fanciful mashup of Walking Dead, KickAss, Watchmen, and maybe even a little Indiana Jones... a solid page turner that had me excited to see what would unfold in the next chapter." -- Lieutenant Z 
"If you like Superhero stories cast with very real characters, this is the book for you. Our hero 'Spitball' may not start out as the greatest of heroes, but this, his first serious mission, puts him in situations where he forced to grow or die." -- Frae  
"If you like a little humor mixed with your adventure and horror...this one's for you." -- papab1

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . . 
    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her. 
    He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . . 
    "Victoria." 
    Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. 
    "It's in your nature," he murmured. "The desire to be taken." 
    In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

    "Vivid and amusing...Magically funny."-Ursula K. LeGuin, Los Angeles Times   
     
    An enchanting collection of stories, set in the same world, from the author of the award-winning, internationally bestselling Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. 
     
    Following the international bestseller Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke returns with an enchanting collection of stories brimming with all the ingredients of good fairy tales: petulant princesses, vengeful owls, ladies who pass their time in embroidering terrible fates, endless paths in deep, dark woods, and houses that never appear the same way twice. The heroines and heroes who must grapple with these problems include the Duke of Wellington, a conceited Regency clergyman, an eighteenth-century Jewish doctor, and Mary Queen of Scots, as well as two characters from Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell; Strange himself and the Raven King.  
     
    The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories introduces readers to a world where charm is always tempered by eerieness, and picaresque comedy is always darkened by the disturbing shadow of Faerie.
