<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Christine Feehan takes readers into the hot zone in this pulse-pounding GhostWalker novel.</b><br /><br />On a rescue mission in the heart of the Indonesian jungle, Dr. Draden Freeman and his GhostWalker team need to extract the wounded as quickly as possible—or risk spreading a deadly virus unleashed by a terrorist cell. When Draden gets infected, he forces his team to leave him behind. He won’t risk exposing anyone else. He intends to find the ones responsible and go out in a blaze of glory....<br /><br />Shylah Cosmos’s mission is to track the virus and remain unseen. Her enhanced senses tell her that the gorgeous man eradicating the terrorists one by one is a GhostWalker—and his lethal precision takes her breath away. When he’s hit by a lucky shot, she can’t stop herself from stepping in, not knowing that by saving his life she’s exposed herself to the virus.<br /><br />There’s no telling how much time Draden and Shylah have left. Racing to find a cure, they quickly realize that they’ve found their perfect partner just in time to lose everything. But even as the virus threatens to consume their bodies, they’ve never felt more alive.

<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. Riddle</b> <br /><br />"...reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton." <br />-- <i>The Guardian</i> on <i>Pandemic</i> <br /><br />"I finished the book fast because I just couldn't wait..." <br />-- <i>WIRED</i> GeekDad on <i>Departure</i> <br /><br />"Riddle... keep(s) the focus on his characters... rather than the technological marvels" <br />-- <i>Publisher's Weekly</i> on <i>Departure</i> <br /><br />"Well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch--DEPARTURE has non-stop action, an engaging plot and, of course, wheels within wheels." <br />-- Diana Gabaldon, bestselling author of <i>Outlander</i>

<p>The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.</p><p><strong>“<em>Good Omens</em> . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—<em>Washington Post</em><br /><br /></strong>According to <em>The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter</em>, <em>Witch</em> (the world's only <em>completely</em> accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.</p><p>So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.</p><p>And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .</p>
