<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. 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> Okay, maybe hijacking an alien commander's warship wasn't her best idea...</b><br /><br />Genius computer geek Wren Traynor prefers her high-tech comp lab to socializing with people, and she definitely prefers it over crawling through the bowels of the huge Eon warship she's hijacked. When Earth's Space Corps blackmails her into this deadly mission, Wren will do anything to help her beloved sisters and save the Earth from invasion by the insectoid Kantos aliens. That includes entering into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the tall, hunky, and seriously enraged Eon war commander who captains the Rengard.<br /><br />War Commander Malax Dann-Jad is a born protector and has forged a successful career in service to the Eon Empire. Haunted by an early mission where he lost good warriors, he's dedicated to protecting his ship and its crew. Especially since his warship is carrying a special, top-secret cargo. But one tiny, infuriating Terran puts all that at risk when she commandeers his ship and refuses to listen to reason.<br /><br />When the ravenous Kantos set their sights on the Rengard--using sneaky, underhanded tactics--Malax finds himself with an armful of curvy woman. He and Wren must join forces to fight back, and are shocked at their improbable, intense attraction. But with lives at risk, both will learn that strength comes in more ways than one and love can hit when you least expect it, and that in order to survive, you have to put everything on the line.<br /><br /><i>Includes a preview of Galactic Gladiators #1, Gladiator. <br /><br /> </i> <div><i></i></div><div><i></i></div><b>Eon Warriors</b><br />Edge of Eon<br />Touch of Eon<br />Heart of Eon

<b>A global ice age... pushes humanity to the brink of extinction.</b><br /><br />As ice spreads across the planet, scientists race to figure out why the Earth is cooling.<br />They send probes into space--and make a shocking discovery: there's a mysterious object drifting toward the sun.<br />Could it save us from the ice age?<br />Or is it the cause?<br />With time running out, NASA launches a desperate mission to make contact with the object. But it isn't what they expected.<br /><br />* * * <br /><br />From <b>A.G. Riddle</b>, the worldwide bestselling author of <b><i>The Atlantis Gene</i></b> and <b><i>Departure</i></b>, comes a new sci-fi thriller that will change the way you look at Earth's place in the solar system forever.<br /><br />* * * <br /><br />Each month, Earth grows colder. Snow falls in summer. Glaciers trample cities across North America, Europe, and Asia. The new ice age gripping the planet shows no signs of stopping.<br /><br />Chaos erupts. Around the world, people abandon their homes, fleeing the cold, flocking to regions where they can survive.<br /><br />Nations prepare to go to war for the world's last habitable zones.<br /><br />NASA and other scientific organizations race to discover why the world is cooling. They send probes into the solar system to collect readings. Near Mars, one of the probes finds something no one expected: a mysterious object, drifting toward the sun. Could it be responsible for the new ice age? And if so, can we stop it? Or is the artifact merely an observer? Or neither? Could it be a relic from a long-extinct civilization? One thing is certain: investigating the artifact is humanity's best hope of survival.<br /><br />As the ice age claims more lives and the world slides into anarchy, an international consortium launches a mission into space to study the object and make contact. But the first contact mission doesn't go as planned. What the crew discovers out there is beyond anyone's imagination.<br /><br />Two members of the first contact mission may hold the keys to humanity's salvation.<br /><br />Dr. Emma Matthews is the commander aboard the International Space Station. For months, she has watched the world below freeze and civilization unravel. The headlines tell only half of the story. The messages from her sister tell the rest, of a world witnessing mass migrations, fighting for survival, struggling to provide a future for their children. When a catastrophe strikes the ISS, Emma faces her own fight for survival.<br /><br />Dr. James Sinclair is one of the greatest scientists alive. A mind before his time. Years ago, he invented something with the potential to change the world--an invention that would upset the balance of power in the world forever. Fearing that change, his enemies sent him to prison for a crime he didn't commit. But with humanity's future at stake, NASA asks him to join the first contact mission. His expertise is vital to the mission's success--and to saving Emma. With the clock ticking down to humanity's final days on Earth, James makes a decision that will change his life forever and may determine the fate of the entire human race.<br /><br />* * * <br /><br /><b>Praise for A.G.

<b>THE #1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER<br /><br />Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb.</b><br /> <b> </b><br />The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.<br /><br />Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.<br /><br />Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

<b><b>From the #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>—now a hit TV series airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder—comes a novel about what it takes to become a vampire. </b><br /></b><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.

All I want is Hannah.<br /><br />We've resonated, but she avoids me. She has made it very clear that she wants no mate, whether he has two arms or four. But when others leave the Icehome beach camp for a getaway to a fruit-filled cave, Hannah wants to go, and she needs a companion.<br /><br />Me.<br /><br />For the first time, we talk...and I realize my female isn't as good as ignoring me as she thinks. She watches me with hungry eyes. She blushes at my bold words. When I touch her? She no longer runs away.<br /><br />It is time I show her that a Strong Arm hunter can be the right mate for her, and that four arms can hold her twice as closely as two.
