<b>NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES <i>GAME OF THRONES</i>—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON</b><br /> <br />Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.<br /> <br />Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.<br /> <br />Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

<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.

<div><b>"A</b><b> bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, <i>The New York Times</i>).</b><br /><br /></div><div>In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.</div><div><br /><div>Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.<br /><br />But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.<br /><br />With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, <i>Circe </i>is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.</div><div><br /></div><div><b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER--NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY<i> NPR, The Washington Post, People, Time, Amazon,</i> <i>Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Newsweek, </i>the <i>A.V.

<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.

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s <i>Game of Thrones</i>.</b><br /><br /> Centuries before the events of <i>A Game of Thrones,</i> House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. <i>Fire & Blood</i> begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.<br /><br /> What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as <i>The World of Ice & Fire, </i>but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.<br /><br /> With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s <i>The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,</i> <i>Fire & Blood </i>is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Fire & Blood</i></b><br /><br />“I love it <i>so</i> much. <i>Fire & Blood</i> is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s <i>The Silmarillion</i>. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but <i>Fire & Blood</i> flies.”—<b><i>Entertainment Weekly</i></b><br /><br /> “A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.”<b> —<i>The Sunday Times</i></b><br /><br /> “The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”<b>—<i>The Guardian</i></b>
