<b>From the <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>The Night Circus, </i>a timeless love story set in a secret underground world鈥攁 place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea.</b><br /><br />Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues鈥攁 bee, a key, and a sword鈥攖hat lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians鈥攊t is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also of those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose鈥攊n both the mysterious book and in his own life.

When the Earth is threatened by a slowly expanding sun, mankind embarks upon a mission to send a mammoth Worldship to settle a new planet across the stars. The preternatural races step out of hiding to work with the humans to save what they can from their dying world. With the aid of the Fae, shape shifters, Vampires, and other creatures of supernatural lore, the Worldship, Leviathan, is complete one thousand years later.<br /><br />Fire is the most terrifying concept on an interstellar spaceship like the Leviathan. Enforcer Knith Shade is tasked to investigate one that threatened the Alpha-Stack of the Worldship and uncover who was responsible for it when Queen Mab is the primary suspect.<br /><br />But Queen Mab has more tricks up her sleeve, and the investigation brings Knith back into contact with her ex, much to the chagrin of Princess Aurora who may or may not be in a relationship with Knith.<br /><br />Things are never as they seem as Enforcer Shade soon discovers, when she finds that the myths and legends of beings called Firewyrms may not be so mythological after all.<br />

<p><strong>鈥淓xtraordinary . . . A future sci-fi masterwork in a new and welcome tradition.鈥?-- Joanne Harris, author of <em>Chocolat</em></strong></p><p><strong>A stand-alone science fiction novella from the award-winning, bestselling, critically-acclaimed author of the Wayfarer series.<br /></strong><br />At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make a breakthrough in human spaceflight. Through a revolutionary method known as somaforming, astronauts can survive in hostile environments off Earth using synthetic biological supplementations. They can produce antifreeze in subzero temperatures, absorb radiation and convert it for food, and conveniently adjust to the pull of different gravitational forces. With the fragility of the body no longer a limiting factor, human beings are at last able to journey to neighboring exoplanets long known to harbor life.</p><p>A team of these explorers, Ariadne O鈥橬eill and her three crewmates, are hard at work in a planetary system fifteen light-years from Sol, on a mission to ecologically survey four habitable worlds. But as Ariadne shifts through both form and time, the culture back on Earth has also been transformed. Faced with the possibility of returning to a planet that has forgotten those who have left, Ariadne begins to chronicle the story of the wonders and dangers of her mission, in the hope that someone back home might still be listening.</p>

<b>In the first book in a brilliant new fantasy series, books that aren't finished by their authors reside in the Library of the Unwritten in Hell, and it is up to the Librarian to track down any restless characters who emerge from those unfinished stories.</b><br /><br />Many years ago, Claire was named Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing-- a neutral space in Hell where all the stories unfinished by their authors reside. Her job consists mainly of repairing and organizing books, but also of keeping an eye on restless stories that risk materializing as characters and escaping the library. When a Hero escapes from his book and goes in search of his author, Claire must track and capture him with the help of former muse and current assistant Brevity and nervous demon courier Leto. <br /><br />But what should have been a simple retrieval goes horrifyingly wrong when the terrifyingly angelic Ramiel attacks them, convinced that they hold the Devil's Bible. The text of the Devil's Bible is a powerful weapon in the power struggle between Heaven and Hell, so it falls to the librarians to find a book with the power to reshape the boundaries between Heaven, Hell鈥?and Earth.
