Description: Alessandra is not quite fifteen when her prosperous merchant father brings a young painter back with him from Holland to adorn the walls of the new family chapel. She is fascinated by his talents and envious of his abilities and opportunities to paint to the glory of God. Soon her love of art and her lively independence are luring her into closer involvement with all sorts of taboo areas of life. On excursions into the streets of night-time Florence she observes a terrible evil stalking the city and witnesses the rise of the fiery young priest, Savanarola, who has set out to rid the city of vice, richness, even art itself. Alessandra must make crucial decisions about the shape of her adult life, as Florence itself must choose between the old ways of the luxury-loving Medicis and the asceticism of Savanorola. And through it all, there is the painter, whose love will change everything.

Description: What is a TWIDDER? It is a phenomenon known by many names: Time-Slips, Time-Warp or Temporal Displacements, Time Jumps, Time Travel, Time Fabric Ruptures, Time Ribbons-or Strings-or Yarn, Time Storms, Time Slippages, Time Tears, Alternate Realities, Dimensional Leap-Frogging, etc. The author lumps them all under the acronym TWIDDERS (a jumble of “time/warp/displacement” with a pinch of “slip” thrown in). By its spontaneous nature, a time-slip, or TWIDDER, is differentiated from someday-through-human-engineered-means time travel! Wrapping our brains around much of the theory that may one day explain how TWIDDERS can occur is a mind-boggling proposition. It all begins with REALLY BIG THINGS and REALLY SMALL THINGS. And the physics that deal with each.So, if we do indeed live in just one of multiple universes, and time is an illusion, and if in one of these realities Elvis never died, and if wormholes assemble and dissemble randomly throughout our existence and can transport us either to an alternate there or other Now, and if the atoms that make up our being are perfectly happy to participate in said travel, then might we unwittingly be part players in a moment from history and/or visitors to non-congruent locations? And if we can go there and back again, have others from elsewhere come unwittingly for brief visits to our universe?

Description: DANGEROUS DAYS It’s been three months since Drothe killed a legend, burned down a portion of the imperial capital, and found himself unexpectedly elevated into the ranks of the criminal elite. As the newest Gray Prince in the underworld, he’s not only gained friends, but also rivals—and some of them aren’t bothered by his newfound title. A prince’s blood, as the saying goes, flows just as red as a beggar’s. So when another Gray Prince is murdered and all signs point to Drothe as the hand behind the knife, he knows it’s his blood that’s in danger of being spilled. As former allies turn their backs and dark rumors begin to circulate, Drothe is approached by a man who says he can make everything right again. All he wants in exchange is a single favor. Now Drothe finds himself traveling to the Despotate of Djan, the empire’s long-standing enemy, to search for the friend he betrayed—and the only person who can get him out of this mess. But the grains of sand are running out fast, and even if Drothe can find his friend, he may not be able to persuade him to help in time...

Description: JESSE PULLMEN lived a quiet life with his adopted father, Councilor Elegan Pullmen, in the hidden oceanic city of Aquaterra. Along with his friend Helbit Massic, Jesse spent his days exploring the hidden city while dreaming of life in the world above. The people of Aquaterra had been banished beneath the sea by the fierce Restil race hundreds of years before, during an invasion that also destroyed the ancient protectors of their world, the Roras. Little did Jesse suspect that a chance meeting with a young woman named Jenn Verecy would start a chain of events that would reveal his own Rora heritage and drastically alter the fate of Aquaterra. For Jenn was the keeper of a mighty Prophecy that could free the people of Aquaterra from their ancient prison, and provide its heroes with the necessary steps to repel their enemies. Now Jesse must find a way to protect Jenn even as he begins training under the watchful eyes of a mysterious Rora named Therin. But even as Jesse’s strength grows, powerful beings are on the move, aware of the Prophecy and desperate to claim it for their own purposes. It will take all of Jesse’s newfound abilities to deliver this Prophecy to its intended recipient and finally begin the journey beyond the dome of Aquaterra to face the enemy above. Collected here is the complete tale of Jesse, Helbit, Jenn and their desperate quest through Aquaterra and beyond. A mission to free their people from the tyrannical grip of the Restils, and restore their world to its rightful inhabitants.

Description: Hailed as a masterpiece upon its initial publication in Italy, Blindly is a novel of highly original, poetic intensity, a Jacob's Ladder reversed to descend into the nether regions of history and, in particular, of the twentieth century. In a shifting, choral monologue—part confession, part psychiatric session—a man recounts (invents, falsifies, hides, screams out) his life, which has passed through the horrors, the hopes and betrayals, and the revolutions of the last century, as well as through widely different lands and seas. Who is the mysterious narrator of Blindly? He is clearly a detainee and a fugitive. He is Jorgen Jorgenson, the nineteenth-century adventurer who was briefly king of Iceland and later condemned to forced labour in the antipodes. But he is also Comrade Cippico, militant Italian communist, imprisoned for years in Tito's gulag on the “naked island” of Goli Otok. And he is all the partisans, prisoners, seamen, and rebels who experience the perils and injustices of persecution, war, violence, and adventure.

Description: An edgy, propulsive read about what a family pushed to the brink will do in the name of love and blood. "The Damage pulled me in from the first page with smart narration, characters I cared about, a hold-your-breath plot, and a terrific final twist. Put this one high on your summer list." —Stephen King Tony has always looked out for his younger brother, Nick. So when he is called to a hospital bed where Nick is lying battered and bruised after a violent sexual assault, his protective instincts flare and a white-hot rage begins to build. As a small-town New England lawyer, Tony’s wife, Julia, has cases involving kids all the time. When Detective Rice gets assigned to this one, Julia feels Nick is in good hands. Especially because she senses that Rice, too, understands how things can quickly get complicated. Very complicated. After all, one moment Nick was having a drink with a handsome stranger; the next, he was at the center of an investigation threatening to tear not only him but his entire family apart. And now his attacker, out on bail, is disputing Nick’s version of what happened. As Julia tries to help her brother-in-law, she sees Tony’s desire for revenge—to fix things for Nick—getting out of control. Tony is starting to scare her. And before long, she finds herself asking: Does she really know what her husband is capable of? Or of what she herself is? Exploring elements of doubt, tragedy, suspense, and justice, The Damage is an all-consuming read that marks the explosive debut of an extraordinary new writer.

Description: It is 1970, the year of Marc Chagall's famous art exhibit in Paris. Clayton Rogers Clarke, a Virginian, has chosen the city as his place of residence while pursuing research during his first sabbatical. His philosophical interests, however, suffer sudden distraction from an unanticipated competitor: Monique Gibert, a writer for a French daily, for whom her husband (Jacques-Maria) is the senior journalist. Flirtatious quips and nods soon lead to a passionate affair. While dividing his time between Monique and his studies, he meets a fellow PhD, also on sabbatical. Professor Carl Sullivan's field is the Classics, and it is his conviction that humankind has scarcely progressed beyond Homer. Clayton is determined to prove him wrong. Scores of delightful characters in Clarke's pension add intrigue and verve to the story. Wander with Clayton and Monique as they make their way into each other's hearts, while traversing the city's cafŽs and parks that Paris alone affords lovers. And ponder with the young philosopher the age-old question of the human condition. Students of the Classics, of the Humanities and French literature, as well as philosophy, will find the author's synopses of Rousseau and Pascal, and of Homer's gods and heroes, of immense help, along with his translations of Goethe, Rilke, and Baudelaire's poems.

Description: Amidst the chaos of World War II… In a land of brutality and bloodshed… One death can still change everything. In war-torn Yugoslavia, a beautiful young filmmaker and photographer—a veritable hero to her people—and a German officer have been brutally murdered. Assigned to the case is military intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. Already haunted by his wartime actions and the mistakes he’s made off the battlefield, he soon finds that his investigation may be more than just a murder—and that the late Yugoslavian heroine may have been much more brilliant—and treacherous—than anyone knew. Maneuvering his way through a minefield of political, military, and personal agendas and vendettas, Reinhardt knows that someone is leaving a trail of dead bodies to cover their tracks. But those bloody tracks may lead Reinhardt to a secret hidden within the ranks of the powerful that they will do anything to keep. And his search for the truth may kill him before he ever finds it.

Description: First published in 1935, Pilgrims of the Wild is Grey Owl’s autobiographical account of his transition from successful trapper to preservationist. With his Iroquois wife, Anahereo, Grey Owl set out to protect the environment and the endangered beaver. Powerful in its simplicity, Pilgrims of the Wild tells the story of Grey Owl’s life of happy cohabitation with the wild creatures of nature and the healing powers of what he referred to as "the great Northland" of "Over the Hills and Far Away." A bestseller at the time, Pilgrims of the Wild helped establish Grey Owl’s international reputation as a conservationist. His legacy of warnings against the degradations of nature and the dangers of industry live on, despite the posthumous revelation that he wasn’t, in fact, the First Nations man he claimed to be.
