Summary

In a not too distant future, political polarization, religious intolerance, and social differences have splintered America into eight different countries. 
Fleetwood Castor is a sixteen year old from New England who’s mostly concerned about passing the eleventh grade without any drama. After sucking down his morning energy drink, Fleet accidentally punches out a new kid, Gideon. Since Gideon is gay, their principal assumes Fleet is a homophobe, instead of just klutzy, so he proves otherwise by inviting Gideon over for dinner. Just as the family meal begins, armored men storm Fleet’s house and kidnap the two teens. They awake to find themselves unwilling participants in a maze with seven strangers from around the former United States. The maze is not only deep underground and built with walls made of salt, but it’s rigged with deadly traps. The mysterious terrorist organization behind the madness films their every move, broadcasting live to the world. 
Rumer Golden is a seventeen-year-old girl from Western America who has been in love with heartthrob actor Cassian Booth for years. She’s so in love that she’s been filming him for weeks without his knowledge to create a documentary about his life. She even sneaks into his home for more footage when terrorists kidnap Cassian and throw him in the salt gauntlet with Fleet and the other teens. Rumer is the only person in the world with any footage of the kidnappers, and soon finds her life on the line as she must figure out who to trust and how to save Cassian (and the others, assuming there’s any time left).

    Fresh from his exploits in the Steel Worlds, home of the Kurii, a savage alien race intent on conquering Gor, Tarl Cabot has been returned to an isolated beach, at coordinates apparently specified by the Priest-Kings, the masters of Gor and the enemy of the Kurii. His only companions are his beautiful new slave Cecily and Ramar, a ferocious sleen bred in the Steel Worlds to hunt and kill. But why has he been returned to such a remote spot? Did the Priest-Kings wish their former agent to serve them once more? Did the Kurii intend to use Cabot to further their own ends? The truth, as Tarl will learn, is darker and deeper than either of these possibilities.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Swordsmen of Gor is the 29th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    Taziem and Lathwi are back in a new adventure. And the stakes have never been higher. 
    Taziem is a magnificent dragon: sexy, powerful, intelligent.  Like other dragons, she hoards diamonds, but unlike other dragons, she covets knowledge as well. This drive for knowledge has forced her out of her cave and into the world of humans on more than one occasion. But this time, the stakes are even higher-for Taz and for her human-born dragonling, Lathwi. 
    In the five years since the downfall of Malcolm Blackheart and his dark Mistress, Lathwi has led a life free of human complications. But now two old acquaintances intrude on her solitude. Pawl has come in search of help against an infestation of ghosts, while Luke bears dire news of dragon slayings. 
    Lathwi recruits her mother, Taziem, to hunt down and destroy the murderers, and then sets out with Pawl to restore the dead to their rest. Their adventures draw them into the badlands of the south, where they encounter an ambitious warlord, his troubled mage, and a deranged dragonsire. 
    The balance of continental power hinges on Taziem and Lathwi. 
    Will humans win? Or will dragons?

    A Tor.com Best of 2016 pick! 
    Set in the magical world of Renthia, The Queen of Blood is Sarah Beth Durst’s ambitious entry into adult epic fantasy. With the danger of Peter Brett’s The Warded Man, heart of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, and lyricism of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind, this is the first chapter in a series destined to be a classic. 
    Everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river, the wind that exhales fresh snow . . . 
    But the spirits that reside within this land want to rid it of all humans. One woman stands between these malevolent spirits and the end of humankind: the queen. She alone has the magical power to prevent the spirits from destroying every man, woman, and child. But queens are still just human, and no matter how strong or good, the threat of danger always looms.  
    With the position so precarious, young women are chosen to train as heirs. Daleina, a seemingly quiet academy student, is under no illusions as to her claim to the throne, but simply wants to right the wrongs that have befallen the land. Ven, a disgraced champion, has spent his exile secretly fighting against the growing number of spirit attacks. Joining forces, these daring partners embark on a treacherous quest to find the source of the spirits’ restlessness—a journey that will test their courage and trust, and force them to stand against both enemies and friends to save their land . . .  before it’s bathed in blood.

    In 1906 a detachment from the U.S. Signal Corps is attacked by three Tu-nel. The Tu-nel are descended from the therapsids, mammal-like reptiles that evolved in the Triassic Period--before the dinosaurs. They co-existed with the dinosaurs of the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods. During the 135 million years of their existence, they have undergone major evolutionary changes. These helped them survive the mass extinctions of the dinosaurs and, much later, the giant mammals 
     
    The scene shifts to Hampton Roads, Virginia. Teddy Roosevelt is launching his Atlantic Fleet on a world cruise. It is an audacious enterprise, mainly because of the political tensions between the United States and Japan. The oldest ship in the Fleet is the Florida, commanded by Captain Oates. His vessel is constantly in the "Observation Ward" because of poor performance, a position that does not improve after the Fleet sets sail for South America. It is his ship that will ultimately confront the Tu-nel off Midway Island.
