A Reaper at the Gates (Ember Quartet, Book 3)
The highly anticipated third book in Sabaa Tahir's New York Times bestselling Ember Quartet. Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger. The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister's life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance. Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she'd have to fight. And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias's devotion-even at the cost of his humanity.

`It's said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world... Lee Child's genius has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore' Daily Express After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher's old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there? What Reacher doesn't expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words: `You're back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.' Will he be sorry he went back? Or - will someone else?

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist, and one of Langdon’s first students. 

But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced to flee. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch. They travel to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret. 

Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme re­ligion, Langdon and Vidal must evade an enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. They uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

War of the Wolf (The Last Kingdom Series, Book 11)
At the fortress of the eagles, three kings will fight ... Uhtred of Bebbanburg has won back his ancestral home but, threatened from all sides by enemies both old and new, he doesn't have long to enjoy the victory. In Mercia, rebellion is in the air as King Edward tries to seize control. In Wessex, rival parties scramble to settle on the identity of the next king. And across the country invading Norsemen continue their relentless incursion, ever hungry for land. Uhtred - a legendary warrior, admired and sought as an ally, feared as an adversary - finds himself once again torn between his two heritages: fighting on what he considers the wrong side, cursed by misfortune and tragedy and facing one of his most formidable enemies. Only the most astute cunning, the greatest loyalty and the most spectacular courage can save him. For decades, Uhtred has stood at the intersection between Pagan and Christian, between Saxon and Viking, between the old world he was born into and the new world being forged around him. But as the winds of change gather pace, the pressure on Uhtred as father, as politician and as warrior grows as never before.

And what is the aim of the four enigmatic men who make up the oldest, most secret society in the world-to save it or destroy it? Follow Ari and Maryse as they race toward the golden Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, where they must find the answers by a certain day-The Day of Atonement.

The Ocean's Menace
One of the more underappreciated aspects of Archibald Rutledge's varied and prolific literary efforts focuses on the way he could weave stories involving danger in the wilds. What he frequently described as chimeras-great sharks, alligators, rattlesnakes, and cottonmouths of incredible and often embellished dimensions, wild hogs with razor-sharp tusks, and more-clearly fascinated him. Similarly he exhibited a knack for twists and turns in his tales reminiscent of O. Henry at his best. The Ocean's Menace offers a fine example of this aspect of Rutledge as a creative writer. The title is misleading because it immediately conjures images of something massive, such as a white shark, devilfish, whale, or other leviathan. Instead The Ocean is a remote, treacherous tract of land near Hampton where hunters dare not venture and which locals view with a mixture of awe and alarm. It provides an ideal setting for this tale. Rutledge was at his best when writing of whitetails, because deer hunting is woven as a bright thread through the entire fabric of his life. Here though, instead of yet another tale of a mighty stag or an antlered giant, the quarry proves to be the hunter's salvation. Delightfully told, with an abundance of twists and turns as the plot unfolds, this is the sage of the Santee at his finest. A project of South Carolina Humanities benefiting South Carolina literary programs, this new edition of The Ocean's Menace is illustrated in handsome charcoal etchings by Southern artist Stephen Chesley. Award-winning outdoors writer and noted Rutledge scholar Jim Casada provides the volume's introduction and afterword.

The Mosul Legacy
Mosul, Iraq, 2016 - once ISIL's greatest conquest but fast becoming a giant graveyard, where the difference between a gruesome death or wretched survival is just a matter of chance. As attacks by the Western coalition forces devastate the city, even senior ISIL officers like Karl realise defeat is inevitable. On his instructions, two ISIL jihadists travel across the EU Schengen Zone, planning to bring terror to a Western European city. German police officer Max Kellerman is on their tail - can he find them in time to prevent a catastrophic loss of life? Hema and Faqir Al-Douri flee the Mosul death trap in search of peace and safety in Western Europe. As poor, homeless refugees, they face the impossible task of crossing unfriendly borders in Asia and Eastern Europe to reach the safe-haven they dream of. Their journey is fraught with danger and protecting their family demands sacrifices they could never have imagined. The Al-Douri's desperate attempt to find freedom in the face of heartless bureaucracy, murderous violence and venal corruption is in stark contrast with the jihadists' dark intent as they journey across a borderless Europe. As with his bestselling African Diamonds trilogy, Christopher Lowery combines detailed factual events with a gripping multi-stranded plot, whose topicality is inescapable. From North Africa through Eastern and Western Europe, The Mosul Legacy confronts the reader with the devastating truth behind today's newspaper headlines. The perfect read for fans of Gerald Seymour, Chris Ryan and Roger Pearce.

***Number One New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown returns with another suspenseful, sexy thriller*** Twenty-five years ago, Major Franklin Trapper became a national icon when he lead a handful of survivors to safety after the bombing of a Dallas hotel. For years, he gave frequent speeches and interviews but then suddenly dropped out of the public eye, shunning all media. Now, ambitious TV journalist Kerra Bailey is determined to get an exclusive with the Major - even if she has to wrangle an introduction from his estranged son, former ATF agent John Trapper. Trapper wants no association with the Major, but despite himself, he agrees to the meet. But when the interview goes catastrophically awry - with unknown assailants targeting his father and Kerra - Trapper starts a hunt to track down the gunmen . . . and finally discover who was responsible for the Dallas bombing. Kerra is wary of a man so charming one moment and dangerous the next, and she knows Trapper is withholding evidence from his ATF investigation into the bombing. But having no one else to trust and enemies lurking closer than they know, Kerra and Trapper join forces to expose a sinuous network of lies and conspiracy - and uncover who would want a national hero dead. ************* Praise for Sandra Brown 'Suspense that has teeth' Stephen King 'A masterful storyteller, carefully crafting tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats' USA Today 'Lust, jealousy, and murder suffuse Brown's crisp thriller' Publishers Weekly 'An edge-of-the-seat thriller that's full of twists . . .

Am I Unique?
When George Wilson is struck by the tragic death of his childhood sweetheart and fiancee, he set off on an odyssey, which leads him to North Africa. During his stay, he is duped into being a `mule' and finds himself sentenced in Spain for drug smuggling. George is released from prison and in a very unsettled frame of mind, he enlists in the French Foreign Legion. During his service he is posted to Algeria during the period of the Algerian War of Independence. He becomes disillusioned over the ethics of the hostilities and his indecision of thoughts makes him sympathetic towards the Algerian Cause. Fate makes up his mind for him when an act of gallantry to an Algerian girl and her brother, leads him to taking up arms with the Algerian Freedom Fighters. His love for the Algerian girl becomes his driving force and together they are involved in many escapades, some of a dangerous nature. George is finally caught by the Foreign Legion military police and during an incident in which shots are fired. His time in detention proves that the pen can be mightier than the sword, and each, in their own manner, are unique.

Shadow Tyrants: Oregon Files #13
Legend says that nine men once held a secret so powerful it could change the course of time . . . Now only Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon stand between two warring moguls and complete global havoc. This is the latest nail-biting epic from the grand master of adventure, Clive Cussler. Nearly two thousand years ago, an Eastern emperor charged a small group with safeguarding secrets powerful enough to change the history of mankind. They went down in legend as the Nine Unknown Men--and now two rival factions of their descendants are fighting a mighty battle. Both sides think they are saving the world, but their tactics could very well bring about the end of humankind. Cabrillo and the team must divide and conquer as they fight dual threats, which include a supercomputer at sea and satellites that can wipe out technology across the globe--including the high-tech weapons on board the Oregon. The crew must rely on their unique skills to stop the tyrants in their tracks and save the earth from a dynasty of terror. 'Cussler and action-adventure fans will love this latest Oregon Files novel. The sheer insanity of the story line will keep readers guessing about what's going on until the last page of the book. Chapter one has the pacing of the climax of other thriller novels, and the pace from that fast start does not let up until the end' Daily Mail 'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail 'The Adventure King' Sunday Express 'Nobody does it better... nobody!'

Retribution: The Centurions III
The action-filled climax of the epic story of the Batavi uprising in AD 69, from the author of the bestselling Empire series. **NOW FEATURING AN ADDITIONAL SHORT STORY** 'A masterclass in military historical fiction' - Sunday Express Victory is in sight for Kivilaz and his Batavi army. The Roman army clings desperately to its remaining fortresses along the Rhine, its legions riven by dissent and mutiny, and once-loyal allies of Rome are beginning to imagine the unimaginable: freedom from the rulers who have dominated them since the time of Caesar. The four centurions - two Batavi and two Roman, men who were once comrades in arms - must find their destiny in a maze of loyalties and threats, as the blood tide of war ebbs and flows across Germania and Gaul. For Rome does not give up its territory lightly. And a new emperor knows that he cannot tolerate any threat to his undisputed power. It can only be a matter of time before Vespasian sends his legions north to exact the empire's retribution.

Poso Wells
Poso Wells is ironic, audacious, and fierce. But what is it, exactly? A satire? A scifi novel? A political detective yarn? Or the purest reality of contemporary Latin America. It's unclassifiable--as all great books are. --Samanta Schweblin, author of Fever Dream Poso Wells is brilliant, audacious, doubtlessly playful and at the same time so dark and bitter. A truly unforgettable book. --Alejandro Zambra, author of Multiple Choice The story is a condemnation not only of the corrupt businessmen and the criminal gangs that rule Poso Wells but also of the violence against women that plagues Latin America's real slums. --The New Yorker One part Thomas Pynchon, one part Gabriel Garc a Marquez, and one part Raymond Chandler, Alem n's novel contains mystery, horror, humor, absurdity, and political commentary ... A concoction of political thriller and absurdist literary mystery that never fails to entertain. --Kirkus Reviews A wild, successful satire of Ecuadorian politics and supernatural encounters. ... Alem n's singular voice keeps the ride fresh and satisfying. --Publishers Weekly In the squalid settlement of Poso Wells, women have been regularly disappearing, but the authorities have shown little interest. When the leading presidential candidate comes to town, he and his entourage are electrocuted in a macabre accident witnessed by a throng of astonished spectators. The sole survivor--next in line for the presidency--inexplicably disappears from sight. Gustavo Varas, a principled journalist, picks up the trail, which leads him into a violent, lawless underworld. Bella Altamirano, a fearless local, is on her own crusade to pierce the settlement's code of silence, ignoring repeated death threats. It turns out that the disappearance of the candidate and those of the women are intimately connected, and not just to a local crime wave, but to a multinational magnate's plan to plunder the country's cloud forest preserve. More Praise for Poso Wells By expertly weaving multiple narratives around the figure of Vinueza, the hapless (but wealthy!) presidential candidate who resembles so many corrupt (but wealthy!) presidential candidates in the modern history of Ecuador, Gabriela Alem n depicts with verve and humor the horrors and absurdities of a society intent on perpetuating itself. --Mauro Javier Cardenas, author of The Revolutionaries Try Again Gabriela Alem n has a rhythm worth watching ... she does something unexpected, things fly apart, she leaps into the void, and you think, 'there's no way she can pull this off'--but no, everything fits together, falls into place, flows, and the story goes on. --Pedro Mairal, author of The Missing Year of Juan Salvatierra This compulsively readable book is Gabriela Alem n's debut as a novelist in the English-language. Sparklingly original, full of dry wit, and deliciously suspenseful, Poso Wells could well earn Gabriela Alem n a cult following. --Jon Lee Anderson, author of Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life, Guerrillas: Journeys in the Insurgent World, and The Fall of Baghdad
