A mystery that offers “a gripping and richly atmospheric glimpse into the literal underworld of Victorian England—the labyrinthine London sewer system” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Clare Clark’s critically acclaimed The Great Stink “reeks of talent” as it vividly brings to life the dark and mysterious underworld of Victorian London (The Washington Post Book World). Set in 1855, it tells the story of William May, an engineer who has returned home to London from the horrors of the Crimean War. When he secures a job trans­forming the city’s sewer system, he believes that he will be able to find salvation in the subterranean world beneath the city. But the peace of the tunnels is shattered by a murder, and William is implicated as the killer. Could he truly have committed the crime? How will he bring the truth above ground? With richly atmospheric prose, The Great Stink combines fact and fiction to transport readers into London’s putrid past, and marks the debut of a remarkably talented writer in the tradition of the very best historical novelists. “A crackerjack historical novel that combines the creepy intrigue of Caleb Carr, the sensory overload of Peter Ackroyd and the academic curiosity of A. S. Byatt.” —Los Angeles Times

“Den of Thieves rollicks….This is a book I would be happy to have written.” —Dave Duncan Remember this name: David Chandler. With Den of Thieves, the first book in his astounding fantasy series, The Ancient Blades Trilogy, Chandler immediately establishes himself as a major player in the world of action-rich epic fantasy—right up there alongside George R. R. Martin, R. A. Salvatore, and Raymond E. Feist. An enthralling and wonderfully gritty tale of cutpurses, knights and demons, witches, betrayals, and darkest intrigue—in the popular vein of the bestselling works of Brent Weeks, Joe Abercrombie, and Scott Lynch—Den of Thieves introducers readers to Malden, an amiable young criminal whose one grave mistake bonds him to the lord of the underworld and sets him on an impossible quest that will most likely lead the hapless thief to his doom.

“An enthralling conclusion to this superb trilogy, displaying an exceptional combination of originality, magic, adventure, character, and drama.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz—or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest—perhaps to death. Only Verity’s return—or the heir his princess carries—can save the Six Duchies. But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him—currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was. Praise for Robin Hobb and Assassin’s Quest “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “Superbly written, wholly satisfying, unforgettable: better than any fantasy trilogy in print—including mine!”—Melanie Rawn

A #1 Indie Next Pick and LibraryReads Selection Magic, adventure, mystery, and romance combine in this epic debut in which a young princess must reclaim her dead mother’s throne, learn to be a ruler—and defeat the Red Queen, a powerful and malevolent sorceress determined to destroy her. On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown. Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust. But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend . . . if she can survive. This book will be a beautifully designed package with illustrated endpapers, a map of the Tearling, and a ribbon marker.

Ricardo war eine Urlaubsliebe. Intensiv, leidenschaftlich, aber flüchtig. Nichts, was eine erwachsene Frau ernst nehmen sollte, erst recht nicht mehr Jahre später, wenn sie kurz vor der Hochzeit mit einem anderen steht. Lara weiß das nur zu gut. Und doch sitzt sie nun im Flugzeug, um einige Wochen im Land des Südamerikaners zu verbringen und – vielleicht? – an etwas anzu-knüpfen, für das ihr einst der Mut fehlte. Wartet am anderen Ende der Welt ihr eigentliches Glück? Ist David, ihr Zukünftiger, wirklich der, den sie will, oder ist er nur die bequemere Wahl? Erinnert sich Ricardo überhaupt an sie, war da echtes Gefühl, oder benutzt sie ihn nur als Projektionsfläche einer diffusen Sehnsucht? Der liebeskranke Schwede Jan, der ihr gleich nach der Ankunft in die Arme stolpert, ist nur einer von mehreren Menschen, die Lara im Laufe ihrer Reise – direkt oder indirekt – Antworten geben ... Über den Autor: Geboren 1976 in München, „nötigte“ sie ihre Mutter bereits vor Schuleintritt, ihr Lesen und Schreiben beizubringen und hielt ab 1982 ihre kleinen Geschichten schriftlich fest. Nach ihrer Kindheit und Jugend in München, Stuttgart, Meckenheim (bei Bonn) und Coburg, studierte sie in Erlangen Theater- und Medienwissenschaft. In dieser Zeit war sie als Schauspielerin, Regisseurin, Bühnenbildnerin und „Mädchen für alles“ an diversen Theater- und Film-Projekten beteiligt, doch das Schreiben blieb ihre größte Leidenschaft. Einem ersten, vierwöchigen Aufenthalt in Ecuador 1999, folgte nach dem Studium 2001 eine dreimonatige Rucksackreise durch Ecuador und Peru. Inspirationen aus diesen Reisen ließ sie in ihren Debütroman „Die andere Haut“ einfließen. Heute lebt sie wieder in München und arbeitet nach verschiedenen Stationen als Journalistin und Werbetexterin in einer Erdinger Medienagentur als Redakteurin.

Gut dreitausend Jahre in der Zukunft: Perry Rhodan hat nach wie vor die Vision, die Milchstraße in eine Sterneninsel ohne Kriege zu verwandeln. Der Mann von der Erde, der einst die Menschen zu den Sternen führte, möchte endlich Frieden in der Galaxis haben. Davon ist er in diesen Tagen des Jahres 1552 Neuer Galaktischer Zeitrechnung allerdings weit entfernt: In der von der Superintelligenz ES verlassenen Milchstraße machen sich Boten anderer Superintelligenzen breit, ebenso alte Feinde von ES und neue Machtgruppen. Eine dieser Machtgruppen sind die Thoogondu, einst ein von ES unterstütztes Volk, das von der Superintelligenz allerdings verbannt wurde und seit Jahrtausenden in der fernen Galaxis Sevcooris darauf wartet, in die Milchstraße zurückzukehren. Der Gondu, so der Titel ihres amtierenden Herrschers, befand sich auf einem Kurs der Koexistenz, wurde allerdings von seinem Sohn Puoshoor ermordet, der unter Kontrolle einer Geheimorganisation steht, die eine Politik der brutalen Eroberung fördert. Puoshoor lässt sich zum neuen Gondu ausrufen, ungeachtet der Tatsache, dass sein Vater Puorengir, die Zwillingsschwester Puoshoors, zur neuen Gonda des Reiches erklärte. Verblendet versucht er, seine Schwester zu töten, die vor ihm in die Milchstraße flieht. Dort verbündet sie sich mit Perry Rhodan. Puoshoors letzte Chance, doch noch zu triumphieren, ist DIE HARUURID-MISSION ...

Abandoned as a child, Tungdil the blacksmith labors contentedly in the land of Ionandar, the only dwarf in a kingdom of men.

Not only his own safety, but the life of every man, woman and child in Girdlegard depends upon his ability to embrace his heritage. Although he has many unanswered questions, Tungdil is certain of one thing: no matter where he was raised, he is a true dwarf. And no one has ever questioned the courage of the Dwarves.

It begins in Toronto, in the years after the smart drug revolution. Any high school student with a chemjet and internet connection can download recipes and print drugs, or invent them. A seventeen-year-old street girl finds God through a new brain-altering drug called Numinous, used as a sacrament by a new Church that preys on the underclass. But she is arrested and put into detention, and without the drug, commits suicide. Lyda Rose, another patient in that detention facility, has a dark secret: she was one of the original scientists who developed the drug. With the help of an ex-government agent and an imaginary, drug-induced doctor, Lyda sets out to find the other three survivors of the five who made the Numinous in a quest to set things right. A mind-bending and violent chase across Canada and the US, Daryl Gregory's Afterparty is a last chance to save civilization, or die trying.
