Summary

Jordan Parker becomes an obsession for William, a man who believes she is the only being on the planet that can save him. 
When Jordan goes on the run, it culminates in a bloody massacre where Jordan is the sole survivor. This forces Mr. Parker, the father who abandoned her before she was born, to appear and bring her into his world— a world filled with magic, wonder and danger. Through him, Jordan will learn the secrets of her birthright, what makes her power special and why she has suddenly become a pawn in a deadly war for power. 
This is the first installment in the Birthright Series, a dark YA fantasy series.

    “[The Runabout] is so good, it will make you want to read the other stories.” 
    —SFRevu 
    “Engrossing. Detailed. Imaginative. I had never heard of the author’s Diving series before reading this. I should have. It is good. Really good.” 
    —Tangent Online 
    “Amazing character construction, building a plot that riveted me almost from the moment it began. I will now absolutely have to read the preceding titles and I cannot wait to see what will come as a result of The Runabout.” 
    —Tangent Online 
    “Kristine Kathryn Rusch is best known for her Retrieval Artist series, so maybe you’ve missed her Diving Universe series. If so, it’s high time to remedy that oversight.”

    WHO IS KORMAK? 
    To the world at large, he is a mercenary and assassin, a brutal killer with a deadly blade. In reality, Kormak is a Guardian, one of an ancient order sworn to protect humanity from the servants of the gathering darkness. 
     
    Kormak is a sword and sorcery hero in the tradition of Conan, Solomon Kane and Druss the Legend, a driven man with a mission to hunt down the ancient demons who slaughtered his family. His fast-paced, action-packed adventures take him from one end of his richly detailed fantasy world to the other. 
    FLESH TO SHADOW 
    This Kormak Omnibus compiles all of Kormak’s adventures so far into one massive volume packed with high adventure. It contains the first three novels, the short story Guardian of the Dawn and many extras such as a map of the Kingdoms of the Sun and the author’s notes for all of the stories.  
     
    STEALER OF FLESH 
    The Ghul are the Stealers of Flesh, an ancient race of demons who possess the bodies of humans to work great evil. Now one of them has been freed from its ancient prison using Kormak's own dwarf-forged sword and the Guardian must pursue it to a haunted city on the edge of the world to end its reign of terror. 
     
    DEFILER OF TOMBS 
    An open tomb, a dead child, and an unleashed ancient horror send Kormak on a path of vengeance through the haunted northlands of Taurea. He seeks Morghael, a necromancer with a plan for resurrecting the dark empire of Kharon and the power to bring the dead swarming back to life. 
     
    WEAVER OF SHADOW 
    War brews along the border of the Elvenwood. The prophet of an ancient evil has corrupted the nation of Mayasha, reducing the once proud elves to feral slaves of the Shadow. Allied with the monstrous Spider Folk she is poised to sweep away the human settlements in the ancient forests and spread her Blight across the lands. Only one man stands between her and absolute victory; Kormak.

    Aiden Elam has always been different from the other kids he knows.  The adults say he has autism, but Aiden isn’t so sure.  He can understand everyone just fine, he just can’t get the words out to tell them.  Now, if he could only get past the strange feeling that keeps him trapped inside his own mind, then maybe he could tell his parents about the weird things he sees.  Or perhaps he could even tell his sister, Meggy, for he knows she can hear and see the strange things, too.

    “The Girl with Ghost Eyes is a fun, fun read. Martial arts and Asian magic set in Old San Francisco make for a fresh take on urban fantasy, a wonderful story that kept me up late to finish.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia BriggsIt’s the end of the nineteenth century in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and ghost hunters from the Maoshan traditions of Daoism keep malevolent spiritual forces at bay. Li-lin, the daughter of a renowned Daoshi exorcist, is a young widow burdened with yin eyes—the unique ability to see the spirit world. Her spiritual visions and the death of her husband bring shame to Li-lin and her father—and shame is not something this immigrant family can afford.When a sorcerer cripples her father, terrible plans are set in motion, and only Li-lin can stop them. To aid her are her martial arts and a peachwood sword, her burning paper talismans, and a wisecracking spirit in the form of a human eyeball tucked away in her pocket. Navigating the dangerous alleys and backrooms of a male-dominated Chinatown, Li-lin must confront evil spirits, gangsters, and soulstealers before the sorcerer’s ritual summons an ancient evil that could burn Chinatown to the ground.With a rich and inventive historical setting, nonstop martial arts action, authentic Chinese magic, and bizarre monsters from Asian folklore, The Girl with Ghost Eyes is also the poignant story of a young immigrant searching to find her place beside the long shadow of a demanding father and the stigma of widowhood. In a Chinatown caught between tradition and modernity, one woman may be the key to holding everything together.Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more.
