A secret branch of the U.S. government has found pyramids on Callisto, a Jupiter moon. They are etched with ancient hieroglyphs that no one can understand -- no one but archaeologist Kaden Jaxx. What's more, the pyramids are giving off energy. Lots of energy. Enough to power half of the United States. But Jaxx discovers his Black Ops bosses are hiding an Earth-shattering truth -- an ancient civilization may still be on that moon. And a secret launch to that moon is imminent. Jaxx hires a brilliant but impulsive reporter who digs into the agency's mandate. When they learn too much, the hunt is on: they're on a government hit list and are now trapped in a race against time to blow the lid off the secret plans, save themselves, and maybe even mankind.

Zoey and Coda are like everyone else in their small town of Gladstone, but that's about to change - forever. Zoey has a dream, one that feels far more real than it should. A strange wolf with a beautiful, violet crystal embedded on his forehead visits her. "Please help us," the wolf implores with sad eyes. "Remember, Zoey, who you truly are." Zoey wakes up, dismissing it as a silly dream. However, she soon realizes that it was far more real than she could have ever imagined. Coda is Zoey's older brother. Like most boys his age, he has a craving for adventure and a loathing for his younger sister. He can't stand it that she constantly gets in his way, joining in on all of his fun while ruining it in the process. The worst, according to Coda, is that Zoey gets all of the attention from their parents. A big drag in his mind. Then destiny arrives. Zoey and Coda find that they must face it together - if they want to survive. Together, they journey to a place deep in the Cornell Forest, beyond the Snow Tree and through a blackberry bush, to a secret portal that leads them to an ancient world called Ohm Totem - to the place of the PureLights, the race that beckoned for their help. There, Zoey and Coda find that they hold something so unique, so magical, and so sacred within themselves that even those who called for them never fathomed how powerful these two children really are. Caught between an age old war and finding their way back home, Zoey and Coda go on an amazing adventure that takes them beyond the veils of everything they once knew, and into the terrifying grasp of the unknown.

When the Ixionic alien race arrived on Earth in the twenty-first century, they offered mankind a chance to save the planet. Their scientific miracles reshaped the world, but so did the unstoppable disease they carried. With no other choice, humanity abandoned its only home and sought refuge on the newly terraformed moon. For two hundred years civilization was rebuilt. That all changed when an Ixionic ship crashed on the outskirts of Tranquility. Mankind's scourge has returned and Carter Ryan is infected at birth. Daily injections are needed to keep him alive and the lunar colony safe. His twenty-first birthday brings military conscription and new knowledge of the Ixion. A heroic act saves the colony but he is asked to conceal his actions. Keeping this secret sets off a chain of events that reveal there is more to his disease than he knows. To learn the truth, Carter will be forced to answer what, or who, he is willing to sacrifice. J. M. Deutsch gives readers a different kind of origin story in his debut novel, In Remembrance of Home. It's a twisting narrative that warns the greatest dangers are those with consequences we choose to ignore.

It's amazing how significantly our lives can change in such a short amount of time. Whether it's a fateful meeting with an old friend, a chance encounter, or an epiphany that seems to materialize from thin air, the lifelong chain of events that follow forever set us on a different path. My life changed in a matter of minutes. The choices I made led me to a life of crime and caused me to become the worst sort of criminal; I became a traitor to the country of New York. For better or worse, the path my life has taken is irreversible. I've killed, I've died, and I've risked my life in attempt to destroy a society built on over one hundred years of lies and corruption. Though I have regrets, I'm proud of the way I handled things. My name is Jacob Ashton, and this is my story. Absolute Knowledge is the first of a trilogy which takes place in a dark, futuristic New York City set in 2146. The country of New York is divided into three physical tiers and the faceless Government is working to establish Absolute Knowledge. Working as Thinkers, the citizens of the Slums are paid for their thoughts and given vouchers needed to sustain their cost of living. Since the Government controls almost everything, most citizens are forced to either work as Thinkers or turn to a life of disconnect from society under the harshest of conditions. In Absolute Knowledge, every thought has a price.

A sunken treasure. An ancient Biblical artifact. A mystery as old as humankind. On January 25, 1829, the Portuguese brig Dourado sank off the coast of Indonesia, losing its cargo of priceless treasures from the Holy Land. One of these lost relics holds the key to an ancient mystery. But someone does not want this treasure to come to light. When her father is murdered while searching for the Dourado, Kaylin Maxwell hires treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake, to locate the Dourado, and recover a lost Biblical artifact, the truth behind which could shake the foundations of the church, and call into question the fundamentally held truths of human existence. Join Maddock and Bones on a perilous adventure that carries them from the depths of the Pacific to ancient cities of stone as they unravel the mystery of the Dourado. Praise for David Wood and the Dane Maddock Adventures "Rip roaring action from start to finish. Wit and humor throughout. How soon until the next one? Because I can't wait." Graham Brown, author of Shadows of the Midnight Sun "What an adventure! A great read that provides lots of action, and thoughtful insight as well, into strange realms that are sometimes best left unexplored." Paul Kemprecos, author of Cool Blue Tomb and the NUMA Files "A page-turning yarn blending high action, Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana Jones better watch his back!" Jeremy Robinson, author of SecondWorld "With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and enter the world of 'why not'?" David L. Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan "A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice "Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." Edward G. Talbot, author of 2012: The Fifth World "I like my thrillers with lots of explosions, global locations and a mystery where I learn something new. Wood delivers! Recommended as a fast paced, kick ass read." J.F. Penn, author of Desecration "Dourado is a brisk read, reminiscent of early Cussler adventures, and perfect for an afternoon at the beach or a cross-country flight. You'll definitely want more of Maddock." Sean Ellis- Author of Into the Black "All the adventure, twists, and surprises you could hope for in an action series." Kane Gilmour author of Resurrect

FIRST NEW HONOR HARRINGTON NOVEL IN FIVE YEARS! New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and international best-selling phenomenon David Weber delivers book #19 in the multiple New York Times best-selling Honor Harrington series, the first new Honor Harrington novel since 2013's Shadow of Freedom. HONOR'S FINISHING WHAT SHE STARTED The Solarian League's navy counts its superdreadnoughts by the thousands. Not even its own government knows how enormous its economy truly is. And for hundreds of years, the League has borne the banner of human civilization, been the ideal to which humanity aspires in its diaspora across the galaxy. But the bureaucrats known as the "Mandarins," who rule today's League, are not the men and women who founded it so long ago. They are corrupt, venal, accountable to no one . . . and they've decided the upstart Star Kingdom of Manticore must be destroyed. Honor Harrington has worn the Star Kingdom's uniform for half a century and served her monarch and her people well. In the course of those years, the woman the newsies call the Salamander has grown from a tactically brilliant but politically naïve junior officer to supreme fleet command and a seat on the highest military and political councils of the Grand Alliance. Very few people know war the way Honor Harrington does. Very few have lost as many men and women, as many friends, as much family, as she has. Yet despite that, hers has been a voice of caution. She knows the Mandarins and the Solarian League Navy are growing increasingly desperate as the truth of their technological inferiority sinks home, but she also knows the sheer size of the League. And she knows how its citizens will react if the Grand Alliance takes the war to the League, attacks its star systems, destroys its infrastructure . . . kills its civilians. Today's victory, bought on those terms, can only guarantee a future war of revenge against a resurgent Solarian League and its navy. Honor knows the Grand Alliance must find a victory that doesn't require incursions deep into Solarian space, doesn't leave a legacy of bottomless hatred, and the strategy she supports has been working. The League is sliding towards inglorious defeat as it steadily loses ground in the Protectorates and the Verge. As its central government teeters towards bankruptcy and even some of its core systems opt to secede in the face of the Mandarins' corruption. As the Solarian Navy finally realizes it cannot face an Alliance battle fleet and win. But the Mandarins have embraced a desperate new strategy, and in pursuit of that strategy, the SLN has committed atrocities such as the galaxy has not known in a thousand years. The League have violated its own Eridani Edict against mass civilian casualties, violated the Deneb Accords prohibition on war crimes. And they have finally killed too many of the people Honor Harrington loves. Hers is the voice of caution and compromise no longer, and the galaxy is about to see something it has never imagined. The Salamander is coming for the Solarian League, and Hell is coming in her wake. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). About Uncompromising Honor: “…a balanced mix of interstellar intrigue, counterespionage, and epic fleet action…with all the hard- and software details and tactical proficiency that Weber delivers like no one else; along with a large cast of well-developed, believable characters, giving each clash of fleets emotional weight.”—Booklist “. . . moves. . . as inexorably as the Star Kingdom’s Grand Fleet, commanded by series protagonist Honor Harrington. . . .

Print in Ireland, 1680-1784

This book considers what was written, printed, published, owned and sometimes read in Ireland between 1680 and 1784. It seeks to evaluate the ephemeral and what has subsequently vanished in order to challenge some common assumptions about the nature and impact of print during the period. It is based on the surviving texts and the letters and comments of contemporaries. Peopled with authors, publishers, and readers, it offers a novel approach to the history of the book in Ireland. Also, it places print in the mental and material cultures of the eighteenth century, and among the efforts to subordinate Ireland more firmly to England. It suggests how enthusiastically Ireland plunged into the cultural currents of the eighteenth century-cosmopolitan rather than introverted and insular.
