<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>) <b>airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, as well as streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.</b></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.

<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling sequel to <i>A Discovery of Witches, </i>book two of the All Souls Trilogy—“as enchanting, engrossing, and impossible to put down as its predecessor” (<i>Miami Herald</i>).</b><br />  <br /><b>Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches” airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.</b><br /><br /> J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has with her <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling All Souls trilogy. <i>A Discovery of Witches</i> introduces reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as <i>Ashmole 782</i>.<br /><br /> Picking up from <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>’ cliffhanger ending, <i>Shadow of Night </i>takes Diana and Matthew on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night.

<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 TV series “A Discovery of Witches” airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.</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. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>—with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. 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.

<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><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER—soon to be an HBO limited series starring Ben Mendelsohn!</b><BR> <BR> <b>An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.</b><BR><BR>An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park.

Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.<BR> <BR>As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.
