Summary

Everyone knows that the world is flat, and supported on the backs of four elephants. But weren't there supposed to be five? Indeed there were. So where is it?... 
When duty calls. Commander Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork constabulary answers. Even when he doesn't want to. He's been "invited" to attend a royal function as both detective and diplomat. The one role he relishes; the other requires, well, ruby tights. Of course where cops (even those clad in tights) go, alas, crime follows. An attempted assassination and a theft soon lead to a desperate chase from the low halls of Discworld royalty to the legendary fat mines of Uberwald, where lard is found in underground seams along with tusks and teeth and other precious ivory artifacts. It's up to the dauntless Vimes -- bothered as usual by a familiar cast of Discworld inhabitants (you know, trolls, dwarfs, werewolves, vampires and such) -- to solve the puzzle of the missing pachyderm. Which of course he does. After all, solving mysteries is his job.

    Whitney is on the run from a company that has been operating in the shadows for decades, building technology that the world isn't ready for and feeding it into the public without them knowing. The brutal information scaring Whitney is that there are clones among us and there's no way of know who is a clone and who is real. 
    
    Even more terrifying, the company responsible for the cloning had a secret that has something to do with Whitney. 
    
     
    
    After surviving the destruction of the facility where she learned all of the dark secrets, Whitney and her old friend, Davy, escape to a nearby friend who might just have enough resources and skills to keep them safe one more day. There, they do their best to rally the cyber community to battle against the cloning. At the same time, they mistakenly send out a flare to their enemy, letting them know where they are. 
    
     
    
    Not willing to be stuck on the defensive, Whitney and her two friends go on the offensive. Going after their eyes and ears, they decide that their only lead is a mysterious man who has been lurking in the Deep Web, hunting down those who come across the company's insidious plans. 
    
     
    
    As the game of cat and mouse begins with another hacker, they have to avoid the age of the Code D who are out to stop them. 
    
     
    
    Are the hunters the ones who are being hunted now and how far down the rabbit hole are Whitney and her friends willing to go?

    Swords and sorcery fill this fantasy about an outcast girl who teams up with a prince to break a supernatural curse that could destroy their warring kingdoms  In the kingdom of Vashti, a shuntali is an outcast—an unperson. One day, a young warrior gallops into the city astride a magnificent blue stallion. He is Prince Kyrem of Deva, and he has come to Vashti on a mission of peace between the warring kingdoms. En route, he is attacked by brigands only to be rescued by a rag-tag stable boy who seems to have a way with horses. Kyrem names him Seda, unaware that the shuntali is really an orphaned girl who has disguised herself in order to survive. Now Seda, Kyrem—whose people possess mystical powers—and the peace-loving healer and magician King Auron of Vashti must join forces to save their nations from the Nameless One. But deep within a cave atop a steep mountain, the last of a vanished race gathers his demonic forces to unleash his revenge on the kingdoms bound together by the great horse-god Suth.   A lonely girl with no past or future and a prince who wants to use his powers for good must find the love and magic to battle hatred and create a peace that has been a long time coming.
