Summary

Exiled from her birthright as a child, Brianna's only crime was to be born a necromancer in a world that mandates their execution.  Rather than have his only child executed, her father, the King of Belmontis, entrusts his closest friend with her care and sends her away before claiming her death from illness. 
Twenty years later, her father has been assassinated by her cousin, who now holds the throne, while Brianna is living anonymously in the Warrens of Mountainvale, the city's worst, most dangerous slums. Though she is unaware of the gathering threat beyond the borders of the country she might have ruled, a foreign necromancer is gathering his army to invade, starting with the city she now calls home. Having already taken a neighboring nation in just weeks, they have set their sights on wealthy Belmontis and only another necromancer can stop them. 
When Garrett Morvan, Mountainvale's city commander, receives a royal command to arrest the necromancer hiding in his city and hold her until the King's representative can arrive, he's shocked to think such a foul creature might be lurking in his city. Only when his men finally bring her in, she's nothing like he imagined a necromancer would be. Instead of the mad hag he expected, she's young, beautiful, sarcastic and determined to escape his custody, one way or another.... 
A romantic fantasy from the author of the "Our Lady of Joy" series.

    A rogue agent has come in from the cold and wants to spill his secrets. The Organisation wants Ishmael to find out if Frank Parker is who he says he is, what he really knows, and why he has emerged from the shadows after all this time. 
    
    Ishmael heads to Ringstone Lodge in Yorkshire where Parker is being held to find that an atmosphere of fear and suspicion prevails. As he and his fellow residents are menaced by a series of alarming and inexplicable incidents, Ishmael sets out to prove that it’s human trickery rather than any supernatural being behind the seemingly ghostly goings-on.

    The end of the Aesir has come, but not as the prophecies foretold. The dread dragon Niddhoggr has devoured the roots of the World Ash, Yggdrasil, and the great tree has toppled onto its side, crashing the realms of mortal and supernatural together. With the gods dead and the fires of ruin consuming the world, your war clan of Viking warriors know what they must do to survive the destruction of the Nine Realms and restore order: they must become the new gods! 
      
     Ragnarok is a campaign-driven skirmish game in which players form a Viking war clan seeking to prove itself worthy of becoming the new pantheon. The use of a mechanic called Godspark means that battles are no longer determined by merely striking an opponent and dealing damage. Instead, warriors will be pushing, throwing, and crashing their opponents around the battlefield, making their very environment a weapon. As the war clans develop, they may gain glorious new powers that will bring them closer to godhood, or win the respect of the denizens of the realms, allowing them to bring dire wolves, dwarves, and even the dreaded giants into their war clans. With strategic gameplay and epic storytelling, players must write their own sagas and tell of how their war clans have, through blood and steel, clawed their way up from ruin to stand before the halls of Valhalla.

    "On every level, Cold Storage is pure, unadulterated entertainment." —Douglas Preston, The New York Times Book Review 
    For fans of The Martian, Dark Matter, and Before the Fall comes an astonishing debut thriller by the screenwriter of Jurassic Park: a wild and terrifying bioterrorism adventure about three strangers who must work together to contain a highly contagious, deadly organism that could destroy all of humanity. 
    They thought it was contained. They were wrong. 
     
    When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository. 
    Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy.  Only Diaz knows how to stop it. 
    He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards—one an ex-con, the other a single mother.  Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again.  All they have is luck, fearlessness, and a mordant sense of humor.  Will that be enough to save all of humanity?
