    For years, like millions of other Americans, John Thomas Rourke had planned for what seemed inevitable—the destruction of civilization. There were various possible causes: global economic collapse, some uncontrollable pestilence, a world famine—or nuclear war. And the rumbling signaling the coming of Total War was becoming increasingly strong as Rourke, ex-CIA Covert Operations Officer, weapons expert, and survival authority, made his last desperate gambit to save his estranged wife and two children before the button was pressed, the missile launched, the multi-megaton bombs loosed. Here then is the story of the ultimate war, the final nuclear holocaust and the unrelenting quest of John Thomas Rourke as he begins his search across war-ravaged America, following every haunting clue, however fragmentary, to locate his missing family. There are Soviet occupation troops, lawless murderous brigands, and vast uncharted nuclear deserts to block his way. John Thomas Rourke has no option but to go on—he is The Survivalist.

    A young woman must take up arms against a powerful empire in this fantasy series of dragons and mages from the New York Times–bestselling author. 
     
    Twenty years after the Great Guilds were overthrown, the Empire plans to avenge its defeat with the help of renegade Mechanics and Mages still loyal to the old Guilds. But first they must eliminate a threat in the midst: Kira, daughter of Master Mechanic Mari and Master of Mages Alain. Kidnapped and imprisoned, Kira must not only escape but evade the full might of the Empire. Her only hope lies in the skills she has mastered; her indomitable spirit; and the unfailing aid of Jason, her boyfriend from the distant world of Urth. 
     
    With the Imperial legions closing in and thousands of lives riding on her efforts, Kira has to use every weapon available to her, including special abilities she has kept secret until now—abilities that may prove to be as dangerous as the enemy. 
     
    Meanwhile, Mari and Alain must work to create an alliance against the Empire. If they fail, a deadlier new war will erupt, with every soldier carrying a rifle instead of a sword or crossbow—and the Peace of the Daughter will end in a bloodbath.

    When a palace maid is attacked, Josie and the captain of the guards investigate together. Since one of the suspects is a foreign diplomat and magic expert, they use the opportunity to learn more about sorcery. But it soon becomes clear that he is using them to get to the truth about the palace and the servants’ origins. 
    With unrest in the village, and servants growing impatient for answers, an undercurrent of danger pervades the air. But the most dangerous man of all may prove to be the king himself, because every clue points to him knowing more than he lets on. 
    As tensions both in and out of the glittering Glancian court rise, the heat between the captain and Josie is a distraction. But is it a welcome one?
