What terrors lurk in the ruins of the Well-Built City? Where manufactured order once reigned, now there is peace. In this second volume of the Well-Built City Trilogy, the dominion has fallen, and its vicious ruler, Drachton Below, has been defeated. Cley has renounced the title of physiognomist, striking out on his own to establish the idyllic village of Wenau, where he lives as a healer and the inhabitants’ protector. But when the villagers suddenly start to succumb to a lethal sleeping sickness, Cley is pulled back into the struggle he thought he had left behind. In order to cure his community of this horrible malady, Cley journeys back to the Well-Built City, braving dangerous ruins teeming with mechanical birds and werewolves. Amid the wreckage, he finds the deposed ruler, Drachton Below, comatose from the same sickness that has overtaken Cley’s village. Below created this disease, and he is the only one with the knowledge to cure it. In order to create an antidote, Cley must venture into Drachton Below’s mind to gather the information he needs from the source before the disease ravages the village—and Below’s mind—forever.
Game of Thrones fans will love the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen series. Sabriel, the first installment in the trilogy, launched critically acclaimed author Garth Nix onto the fantasy scene as a rising star.
Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. But now her father, the Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him. With Mogget, whose feline form hides a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, Sabriel travels deep into the Old Kingdom. There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life and comes face-to-face with her own hidden destiny. . . .
Jefferson Nighthawk, known as the Widowmaker, the most deadly bounter hunter in the galaxy, has been frozen for a century, until the crippling disease that was destroying him, can be cured. His savings are almost gone, and to keep him frozen and alive in his expensive surroundings, his lawyers agree to clone him and send the young Widowmaker out on a high-paying job. But while the new Widowmaker is in his physical prime, he is only two months old, and is unaware of much of the duplicity he'll be encountering.
This is Part 2 of 3 of the Waldgrave series.
Lena Collins has nearly adjusted to her new life with the Silenti. However, a part of her still wishes her previous life of carefree traveling had never ended.
The Silenti won't allow her to leave Waldgrave unescorted, and she never ventures far. Some of them claim it's for her own protection. The rest will never trust a Daray--not after the veil of lies and secrecy that the elderly Master cast over their society.
Deciding that there is only one way to make them trust her, Lena decides to embark on a mission to return an ancient--and potentially deadly--relic to the Council's possession.
However, Lena soon discovers that not everyone is happy about the possibility of the portal's recovery, and some of them are willing to kill to make sure that the portal is never seen again.
And before it's all over, Lena will learn a secret so destructive that it could send the Silenti world spiraling into chaos.
