<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.

<b>From the #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>—now a hit series streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America—comes a novel about what it takes to become a vampire. </b><br /><br />On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.<br /><br />Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever.<br /><br />A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, <i>Time's Convert</i> channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.

Assassins, traitors, and a goddess with a guiding hand culminate in more than one life-threatening secret....<br /><br /><br />Prince Walkyr d'Rojah's mission is to find an ancient artifact known as the Heart of the Cat--a powerful gem that connects his people, its magic woven through the Sarafin like his predatory cat is woven into himself. Walkyr's only clues are an ancient scroll and the legends passed down through generations. However, he isn't the only one searching for it. A sect determined to overthrow the royal families of the Sarafin, the Curizan, and the Valdier wants the gem for themselves. They are more than willing to do whatever it takes to obtain it.<br /><br /><br />Trescina Bukov's affinity with large cats has taken her all over the world, but this time a frantic call from a rescue group compels her to fly to Wyoming in the United States. A new species of leopard was discovered near death, she's told, and this ""new species"" sounds enough like a shape-shifter that Trescina hurries to examine this cat.<br /><br /><br />Their first meeting is explosive, and Walkyr is shocked when the human female connects with his leopard--recognizing what he is and what his weaknesses are, and this is only the beginning of how his mission has gone wrong!

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's <i>The Fiery Cross</i>.<br /><br /> The magnificent saga continues....<br /><br /> It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice. Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century. Their daughter, Brianna....<br /><br /> Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history...and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past...or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong....
