  • The Shadow of the Gods - John Gwynne

    After the gods warred and drove themselves to extinction, the cataclysm of their fall shattered the land of Vigrio. Now a new world is rising, where power-hungry jarls feud and monsters stalk the woods and mountains. A world which once more teeters on the edge of chaos.

  • The Girl With All The Gifts - M. R. Carey

    Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite. But they don't laugh. Melanie is a very special girl.

  • Legacy of Ash - Matthew Ward

    A shadow has fallen over the Tressian Republic. Ruling families - once protectors of justice and democracy - now plot against one another with sharp words and sharper knives. Blinded by ambition, they remain heedless of the threat posed by the invading armies of the Hadari Empire. Yet as Tressia falls, heroes rise.

  • A Wizard of Earthsea - Ursula K. Le Guin

    Hungry for power and knowledge, Sparrowhawk tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance.

  • A People's History of the Vampire Uprising - Raymond A. Villareal

    From one missing body, through a viral epidemic, to a new world order. This sweeping yet deeply intimate fictional oral history - told from the perspective of several players on all sides of the vampire uprising - is a genre-bending, shocking, immersive and subversive debut that is as addictive as the power it describes.
