<b>Book one of the <i>New York Times</i>-bestselling All Souls trilogy—"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of <i>Harry Potter</i> and <i>Twilight</i>” (<i>People</i>). </b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Now “[a] hot show that’s like <i>Twilight</i> meets <i>Outlander</i>” (<i>Thrillist</i>) streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America.</b><br /><br /> Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, <i>Ashmole 782</i>, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.<br /><br /> Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, <i>Shadow of Night</i>, and concludes with <i>The Book of Life</i>.

<b>The #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling series finale and sequel to <i>A Discovery of Witches </i>and <i>Shadow of Night. </i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> <b>Look for the hit series “A Discovery of Witches” streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America.</b><br />  <br /> After traveling through time in <i>Shadow of Night</i>, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies.

In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago.<br />  <br /> With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in thirty-eight foreign editions, <i>A Discovery of Witches</i> and <i>Shadow of Night</i> have landed on all of the major bestseller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness’s legion of fans, <i>The Book of Life</i> brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.

Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.<br /> <br />But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the outlaw Blackstone Clan will either unite Others and humans...or bury them all.

<p>The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.</p><p><strong>“<em>Good Omens</em> . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—<em>Washington Post</em><br /><br /></strong>According to <em>The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter</em>, <em>Witch</em> (the world's only <em>completely</em> accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.</p><p>So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.</p><p>And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .</p>

<b>THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLING JANE HAWK SERIES</b><br />  <br /> <b>Meet Jane Hawk—a remarkable new heroine certain to become an icon of suspense. “This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”—<i>Booklist</i></b><br /><br /> <b><i>“I very much need to be dead.”</i></b><br /><br />These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for—but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what.<br /><br /> People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn <i>why</i>, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way.<br /><br /> But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.<br /><br /><b>Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:</b><br /><b>THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE • THE FORBIDDEN DOOR<b> • THE NIGHT WINDOW (Coming Soon!)</b></b><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Silent Corner</i></b><br /><br />“Gripping . . . The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. . . . Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. . . . Koontz rocks it again.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br />  <br /> “In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. . . . <i>The Silent Corner</i> brims with both action and emotion.”<b>—<i>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i></b><br />  <br /> “<i>The Silent Corner </i>is vintage Dean Koontz: paranoia-fueled suspense . . . sleek and highly realized action, developed characters, and more twists and turns than any two ordinary novels combined. . . . As relevant to current events as it is audacious . . . amongst Dean Koontz’s finest contemporary work.”<b>—<i>Mystery Scene</i></b><br />  <br /> “A proven specialist in action scenes, Koontz pulls off some doozies here. . . . The book is full of neat touches. . . . And the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate. Perhaps Koontz’s leanest, meanest thriller, this initial entry in a new series introduces a smart, appealing heroine who can outthink as well as outshoot the baddest of bad dudes.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i> (starred review)</b>
