THERE WERE THREE THINGS I WAS CERTAIN ABOUT.<br /><br />First, I would never kill another person. But when a family friend murdered my father, I destroyed her with a power I didn't even know I possessed.<br /><br />Second, I would never strike another bargain. But faeries could bring the dead back, so when Cruz offered to revive my father, I accepted. <br /><br />Third, I would never marry an enemy, but every bargain comes at a price. The price of mine: I had to marry Cruz and move to the faerie isle.<br /><br />For the first time in my life, I wondered if death wouldn't be a kinder end.<br /><br /><b>Fans of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES will adore Wildenstein's LOST CLAN series.</b>

<b>An impossible mission. Dangerously growing magic. A distrustful crew. Can Nile beat back the rising tide of war before it’s too late?</b><br /><br />Six months have passed since Princess Nile Greysik changed the course of the Tirik war and earned her place in the Felielle navy . . . or thought she did. <br /><br />With the war taking a violent new turn, Nile—joined by a cryptic empath named Kyra—sails out to beg support from the isolationist Diante Empire. But with a chauvinistic crew waiting for Nile to fail and even Domenic questioning her authority, one wrong step could strip Nile of her command mid-voyage.<br /><br />When a terrifying new evil strikes their ship, Nile begins to understand the awful truth about the enemy they’re facing—and this time, not even her wind calling may be enough to save them.<br /><br /><i>SEA AND SAND is the explosive third novel in the Amazon-bestselling Tides series, a seafaring adventure of duty, love, magic, and a princess’s quest to protect her kingdom on her own terms. Recommended for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Tamora Pierce </i>

The extraordinary #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.<br /><br />It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.<br /><br />Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement. <br /><br />In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of <i>I Am the Messenger,</i> has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

<b>Kel will not allow this first test to be her last. Her adventure begins in the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling series from the fantasy author who is a legend herself: TAMORA PIERCE. </b><br /> <br /> Keladry of Mindelan is the first girl who dares to take advantage of a new rule in Tortall—one that allows females to train for knighthood. After years in the Yamani Islands, she knows that women can be warriors, and now that she’s returned home, Kel is determined to achieve her goal. She believes she is ready for the traditional hazing and grueling schedule of a page. But standing in Kel’s way is Lord Wyldon. The training master is dead set against girls becoming knights. He says she must pass a one-year trial that no male page has ever had to endure. It’s just one more way to separate Kel from her fellow trainees. But she is not to be underestimated. She will fight to succeed, even when the test is unfair.<br /><br />More timely than ever, the Protector of the Small series is Anti-Bullying 101 while also touching on issues of bravery, friendship, and dealing humanely with refugees against a backdrop of an action-packed fantasy adventure.<br /><br />"Tamora Pierce's books shaped me not only as a young writer but also as a young woman. She is a pillar, an icon, and an inspiration. Cracking open one of her marvelous novels always feels like coming home."<br />—<b>SARAH J. MAAS</b>, #1<i> New York Times</i> bestselling author<br /><br />"Tamora Pierce didn't just blaze a trail. Her heroines cut a swath through the fantasy world with wit, strength, and savvy. Her stories still lead the vanguard today. Pierce is the real lioness, and we're all just running to keep pace."<br />—<b>LEIGH BARDUGO</b>, #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author
