Welcome to the astounding world of Predator Cities!<br /><br />London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon, London will feed. <br /><br />In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage--and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.<br /><br />Beloved storyteller Philip Reeve creates a brilliant new world in the Predator Cities series, called "phenomenal...violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening" by the Sunday Times.

<b><b>A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 </b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> bestselling author of the Reckoners series, </b><b><i>Words of Radiance,</i></b><b> and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.</b></b><br /><br />Spensa's world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what's left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa's dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's--a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa's chances of attending flight school at slim to none.<br /><br />No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.<br /><br /><b><u>Praise for </u></b><b><i><u>Skyward</u></i></b><b><u>:</u></b><br /><br />"<b>Startling revelations and stakes-raising implications</b>...Sanderson plainly had a ball with this <b>nonstop, highflying opener,</b> and readers will too.<i>"--Kirkus Reviews</i>, Starred Review<br /><br />"With this <b>action-packed trilogy opener</b>, Sanderson offers up <b>a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast</b>...[and] as the pulse-pounding story intensifies and reveals its secrets, a cliffhanger ending sets things up for the next installment."<i>--Publishers Weekly</i>, Starred Review<br /><br />"It is <b>impossible to turn the pages fast enough.</b>"--<i>Booklist</i><br /><br />"<b>Sanderson delivers a cinematic adventure</b> that explores the defining aspects of the individual versus the society...[and] <b>fans of [his] will not be disappointed.</b>"<i>--SLJ</i><br /><br /><b><u>Praise for Brandon Sanderson's Reckoners series:</u></b><br /><b>#1 </b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> Bestselling Series</b><br /><br />"<b>Another win for Sanderson</b> . . . <b>he's simply a brilliant writer. </b>Period."--Patrick Rothfuss, author of the <i>New York Times </i>and <i>USA Today</i> bestseller <i>The Name of the Wind</i><br /><br /><b>"Action-packed."</b>--<i>EW</i><br /><br />"<b>Compelling.</b> . . .

<DIV>A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT.<BR /> Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth.<BR /> THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy. This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.</DIV>

<p>At the end of <em>Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them</em>, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.</p><p>In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided Wizarding World.</p><p>This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shaped the Wizarding World, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.</p>

Now a major motion picture.<br /><br />A great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.<br /><br />A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts. -New York Times Book Review
