<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER<br /><br />WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE<br /><br /><i>The Testaments</i> is a modern masterpiece, a powerful novel that can be read on its own or as a companion to Margaret Atwood’s classic, <i>The Handmaid’s Tale</i>.</b><br /><br />More than fifteen years after the events of <i>The Handmaid's Tale,</i> the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.<br />  <br />Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third: Aunt Lydia.  Her complex past and uncertain future unfold in surprising and pivotal ways.<br />  <br /> With <i>The Testaments,</i> Margaret Atwood opens up the innermost workings of Gilead, as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

<p><b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Year One</i> and <i>Of Blood and Bone</i> concludes her stunning new trilogy praised as “A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King’s <i>The Stand</i>.”</b> </p><p>After the sickness known as the Doom destroyed civilization, magick has become commonplace, and Fallon Swift has spent her young years learning its ways. Fallon cannot live in peace until she frees those who have been preyed upon by the government or the fanatical Purity Warriors, endlessly hunted or locked up in laboratories, brutalized for years on end. She is determined to save even those who have been complicit with this evil out of fear or weakness—if, indeed, they can be saved.</p><p>Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal—and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy’s stronghold, and pursues her destiny—to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all—she will need an army behind her…</p>

<p><b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER (December 2017)</b><br /><b></b><b></b><br /><b>A stunning new novel from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Nora Roberts—<i>Year One</i> is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives…</b><br /><b></b><br />It began on New Year’s Eve.</p><p>The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.</p><p>Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most. </p><p>As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.</p><p>In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.</p><p>The end has come. The beginning comes next.</p>
