Auf dem Kuiperobjekt Quaoar entdeckt ein Team der Solaren Union eine erstarrte außerirdische Lebensform. Durch unbekannte Mechanismen aus dem Schlaf gerissen, verhält sich das Wesen feindselig und greift die Raumfahrer an. Ein Besatzungsmitglied wird bei dem Zusammenstoß getötet, zwei können aus der Höhle des Extraterrestriers entkommen. In letzter Sekunde rettet ein entsandtes Einsatzteam das Leben der in Not geratenen Astronauten. Der Schock über die unerwartete Begegnung sitzt tief. Alarmiert beobachten die Menschen die Randgebiete des Sonnensystems. Führende Mitglieder der Unionsregierung und der Unionsflotte befürchten, dass sich die Globuster auf verschiedenen Zwergplaneten des Kuipergürtels eingenistet haben. Niemand auf der Erde wünscht eine Eskalation oder gar einen militärischen Konflikt mit den Fremden. Ohne die Pläne und Motivation der Außerirdischen zu kennen, kann die Unionsführung nur schwer auf mögliche nächste Aktionen schließen. Für die Raumflotte und Außenbasen der Union gilt bis auf Weiteres die höchste Alarmstufe. Überraschenderweise sind es jedoch nicht die Mentalspürer, die für erneute Aufregung sorgen. Ein ganz anderer Besucher erscheint im Sonnensystem und versetzt die Menschen in Erstaunen …

In the future world of Scorch, America is run by a "corporacracy.” Three conglomerates have taken control not by force but by manipulating common beliefs and values through the media, and particularly by playing on Americans’ fears of Big Brother. Consumerism and privatization have run amok in this landscape of flashing screens and subtle brainwashing, a world where even city streets and public schools are run by big business. This is a darkly comic first novel of a dystopian future, with echoes of 1984 and Brave New World.

Shane MacKenzie’s life has been turned upside down. He’s lost his command, his identity, and his will to live.

Doctor Lacey Shaw spent years as a medic on the battlefield. She’s seen things that can never be erased from her memory, and when Declan MacKenzie gives her the opportunity to work for MacKenzie Security, she decides any job has to be better for the body and soul than watching soldiers die in a war zone.

In this striking novel-in-stories, a series of strange apocalypses have hit America. Entire neighborhoods drown in mud, glass rains from the sky, birds speak gibberish, and parents of young children disappear. Millions starve while others grow coats of mold. But a few are able to survive and find a light in the aftermath, illuminating what we’ve become. In “The Disappeared,” a father is arrested for missing free throws, leaving his son to search alone for his lost mother. A boy swells to fill his parents’ ransacked attic in “The Ruined Child.” Rendered in a variety of narrative forms, from a psychedelic fable to a skewed insurance claim questionnaire, Blake Butler’s full-length fiction debut paints a gorgeously grotesque version of America, bringing to mind both Kelly Link and William H. Gass, yet imbued with Butler's own vision of the apocalyptic and bizarre.

From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis comes a paranormal romance perfect for fans of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Scorch is the fourth and final book in the thrilling Midnight Fire Series. "All it did was remind Kira that time was running out. That she needed to choose. Or a lot more than a forest would burn. The whole world would crumble." Aldrich escaped...again. Tristan forgot...everything. And Luke, well, Luke was getting more than a little impatient. But those were the least of Kira's concerns, because something else happened in England--something she was trying desperately to forget. A wedge of evil had lodged itself in her heart, a little black hole had nestled into her flames, and it wasn't going away--not anytime soon...and maybe not ever. Keywords: Teen & Young Adult, Paranormal Romance, Romance, Paranormal, Vampires, Angels, Love, Action & Adventure, Magic, Fantasy RAVE REVIEWS for the Midnight Fire Series! "The writing is effortlessly mind blowing. I could not put this entire series down. Once you're hooked, you won't either because it'll eat you up not knowing what happened! And then you'll pick a team like I did and you'll fall in love with all the characters and you'll want all the bad guys to die horribly! Just trust me when I say it really is your loss to miss out on this series! It's a blaze of glory!" - Happy Tales and Tails Blog "Kaitlyn Davis writes some of the best action scenes I have come across in a young adult book; they are fast paced and so well delivered making this more than just a silly romance." - Reflections of a Bookworm "The only downside to this series, is that it ended. But the ending was beautiful." - My Seryniti "Kira isn't a human girl who is one dimensional and in love with a vampire. She's a well-thought out character who comes to life from the pages and steals into your heart. Read the books. Do it." - Urban Girl Reader "I love and hate how fast of a read this was! I love it because I couldn't get enough of it and hate it because once I finished I wanted more!" - I Just Wanna Sit Here And Read "I really enjoyed Ms Davis's writing, I was riveted throughout and was eager to see what would happen - there was drama, danger, action and romance that was wonderfully detailed and described." - Obsession With Books "You'll make friends with Kira, choose sides with Tristan and Luke, and fall in love with the story at heart about a girl with so bright a future....even shades aren't gonna cut it." - Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers
