<h3><strong><em>James was raised by some good men. What would have happened if twisted cultists like the Brotherhood had found him instead of Fathers McCartney and Thomas?</em></strong><strong><em></em></strong><br /></h3><p>It's time to find out more about the Unbelievable Mr. Brownstone.</p><p>James isn't from Earth or Oriceran. Where he <i>is </i>from has been a question for years.</p><p><strong>Will we find out now, or will those who seek to kill what James can become win in the end?</strong></p><p>One thing is certain: no one should count James Brownstone out of a fight, even if it doesn't look like he can win.</p><p><em>Shay knows this. She has been trying to get him to wear something besides that ratty gray coat for a long time.</em><br /></p><p><b>He can also be an </b><strong>obstinate </strong><b>SOB.  Just ask Whispy Doom.</b><b></b><br /></p><p><br /></p><p>Scroll back to the top and click “Read for Free” or “Buy Now” and kick back for a fun, action-packed adventure that will have you yelling for the good guys and laughing at just how badly Brownstone can infuriate Shay, especially with his fashion sense.</p><p>And how thoroughly Shay mystifies Brownstone as she tries to uncover what makes him tick.</p><p><strong>---</strong></p><p><strong>NOTE: This book contains cursing. Perhaps humorous cursing, but cursing nonetheless. If this offends you, I don't suggest reading this book.</strong></p><b></b><p><br /></p><br />

<p><b><b>Instant <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller</b><br /><br />A stunning debut set in a world where reading is unheard-of, perfect for fans of <i>Inkheart</i> and <i>Shadow and Bone<br /></i></b><br />Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book—a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed—and punish the people responsible.<br /><br />With overlapping stories of swashbuckling pirates and merciless assassins, <i>The Reader</i> is a brilliantly told adventure from an extraordinary new talent.</p><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
