    What reviewers are saying:  
    “Author Quintenz doesn't disappoint with this third novel in the series. Reading it is like ingesting the next course in the best meal you've ever eaten... she leaves you satisfied, BUT wanting MORE at the same time.” - Marla J. Hayes 
    “How would I describe this third installment? In a word: awesome.” - Liz, Village Book Review 
    “This series has the vitality that makes the characters and the world they inhabit as real as our own. There’s plenty of action, but there’s also plenty of character development and growth that together deliver a very satisfying whole... Very highly recommended for all lovers of YA urban fantasy. 5 stars.” - Tahlia Newland, Awesome Indies 
    “I had reached a point when I had pretty much given up on young adult books and then Thrall by Jennifer Quintenz made it's way into my hands. It was completely on a whim that I bought it. I loved it. Then her second book, Incubus came out, and I loved it even more. Now Sacrifice is here and I have nothing but praise.” - David, DavidReviews.com

    A ship sits moored off the shore of exile. Broken, yes, but still afloat. And when Snow tells Temple to go secure it, the answer must be “yes.” Either that or a brutal, unforgiving death. 
    Temple, obviously, says yes. 
    But in doing so, Temple unexpectedly finds more than a moored boat. 
    Rei Rosenquist writes of a dark dystopian science fiction world where survival is a shot in the dark and hope is hard pressed and hidden, and you will turn the pages, desperate to find it.

    Three novels in one volume: the acclaimed science fiction trilogy about an alien species that could save humanity after nuclear apocalypse—or destroy it. The newest stage in human evolution begins in outer space. Survivors of a cataclysmic nuclear war awake to find themselves being studied by the Oankali, tentacle-covered galactic travelers whose benevolent appearance hides their surprising plan for the future of mankind. The Oankali arrive not just to save humanity, but to bond with it—crossbreeding to form a hybrid species that can survive in the place of its human forebears, who were so intent on self-destruction. Some people resist, forming pocket communities of purebred rebellion, but many realize they have no choice. The human species inevitably expands into something stranger, stronger, and undeniably alien. From Hugo and Nebula award–winning author Octavia Butler, Lilith’s Brood is both a thrilling, epic adventure of man’s struggle to survive after Earth’s destruction, and a provocative meditation on what it means to be human.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

    On one terrible night in August 1895, the world changed forever. Grey metal cylinders, launched from Mars and 
    hurtled through space, came crashing down in southern England. The next 15 days were marked by courage and despair, hope and shock, defeat and fleeting victory as Queen Victoria's army struggled to contain the terrible alien threat. The war, man against machines from space, was fought without mercy on both sides. And the outcome would be decided by the smallest of things…  
     
    This book covers the whole of the Anglo-Martian conflict, beginning with a look at the relative strengths and weakness of the two armies, both English and alien, and comparing the different strategies employed. It then takes a detailed look at the actual military struggle, covering all of the major engagements between the tripods and Victoria's army.
