Ben Pryor grew up as an average kid in Camden, Maine, unaware of the supernatural storm brewing in his Celtic blood. However, at nineteen, as the last born in the royal line of beings that once ruled Atlantis, Ben has eagerly embraced his newfound abilities and birthright. When Caleb, his sister's mate, goes missing under suspicious circumstances, the prime suspect is the last remaining member of the overthrown, corrupt Guardian Council. With the discovery that an old acquaintance has been keeping secrets, and the future Ben was so sure of shifting before his eyes, the situation becomes more complicated and the ransom for Caleb too high. In the sequel to Shades of Atlantis, Ben will delve deeper than he ever imagined into the old, magical ways of the Guardians, the secrets of Excalibur, and the truth behind the legend of King Arthur. What exactly did the Council hide beneath the citadel of Camelot? And can it help get Caleb back without putting the world in danger?

Fortune twists in the strongest hands. This is no repeat; this is what happens next. A man, once a legend who bound his soul to his sword as he lay dying, is now all but a boy nearing the end of his acolyte training. Stifled by life in the undersea city of Avalon, Arthur wants to fight side by side with the air-breathing Terrans, not spend his life as servant to the incorporeal sentient known as the Archive. Despite the restrictions put on him by Sanctuary, he is determined to help the surface-dwellers defeat predators whose sole purpose is to ensure their own survival, no matter the cost. Ashira, War Maid and princess of the surface-world, is ready to sacrifice her life to defend her kin, but when she is betrayed and cast out of the life chosen for her, she must choose whether to die with honor or become one of the creatures her kinsmen fear and loathe. Following two threads of time, CN Lesley's new incarnation of the Arthurian tales of old delivers the perfect blend of science fiction and fantasy.

For fans of Josh Whedon's cult classic television show Firefly comes a fascinating and fast-paced sci-fi thriller from author Mindee Arnett, which New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White calls "a heart-pounding, tense joyride of a novel." Jeth Seagrave and his crew have made their name stealing metatech: the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light. In a world where the agencies that patrol the outer edges of space are as corrupt as the crime bosses who control them, it's as much of a living as anyone can ask for. For years Jeth's managed to fly under the radar of the government that executed his parents for treason—but when he finds himself in possession of information that both the government and the crime bosses are willing to kill for, he's going to find there's no escaping his past anymore. With pulse-pounding action, a captivating mystery, and even a bit of romance, Avalon is the perfect read for hard-core sci-fi fans and non-sci-fi fans alike.

"Avalon the Forbidden World was the only Terra-type planet ever to be discovered. But when the scattered remnants of Earth's people sought to migrate there, superstition and politics blocked them. After two thousand years, the domed colonies of a hundred barren worlds became convinced that Avalon was the one real enemy of their existence. Destroy that mystery planet was the cry! Jarn Tyblat, warlord of the Drusus Colony, dared to make the first trip to Avalon in centuries. He found a world teeming with wonders and enigmas--mutants, monsters, medieval knights, science-working dwarves, and a lost city in the Far North where all the answers could be found!"--Page 4 of cover.

Author tells the story of his father, Gabriel Fuentes, Jr., and the Sixty-fifth Infantry, manned totally by natives of Puerto Rico, and their important role in World War II. Their original assignments were protecting U.S. interests in the Caribbean, including an extended stint guarding the Panama Canal. Their exemplary service earned them a transfer to the African Theater and ultimately to the Maritime Alps, where they guarded supply lines and the Franco/Italian border in the closing hours of the war. Book is generously illustrated with full-color photos, art, and maps throughout.

Travel stretches the senses. The sights, savours and sounds offer new varieties of experience abroad, and the author of SHADES has done good service in recording them. His keen eye notes the subtle shapes and contradictions that slide across the threshold of perception, whether we're in New York, Cairo or Karachi. But always there is the doppelgänger of the self which haunts the traveller. With it comes doubt, pain and melancholy... as well as the beauty of night landscapes, the eerie spectres of abandonment, the call of absent lovers and the tumult of ecstasy. The poet's opening image - of a village drowned by a lake - somehow pervades this whole collection, as if the shadows of the world drown out its bright beauty. But balancing these concepts

He was a billionaire's spoiled son. He was her first crush, her first heartbreak...and now her sworn enemy. As Avalon Harwood's fortunes soared, Maximilian “Mac” Coltrane's plummeted, and he had to fight his way back to where they both began: Hellcat Canyon. Now Mac and Avalon will play dirty—in more ways than one—to get what they each want: the glorious old abandoned Coltrane mansion. But when Avalon snaps the house up at auction, she discovers there's something awfully familiar about the extremely hot caretaker...

If you need something stolen from any star system in the Confederation, you need look no further than the Shades. Jeth Seagrave and his band of teenage mercenaries have been making a name for themselves for being able to steal anything—and for disappearing before anyone is the wiser. Their latest job, a jewel heist on Grakkus, should be no different. But when Jeth's boss replaces a key member of his crew just before takeoff, and Jeth discovers a betrayal within his own ranks, he begins to suspect that not everyone is going to be coming back from his job alive.

He believes his dreams of heroism unattainable, until he meets Ashkelon. Coming from the Void beyond the world, Ashkelon alone survives the ruined world of Avalon. Cynical and ruthless, he is a sorcerer of the Everlasting Dark, seething with millennia of bitterness, and his black sword shrieks with the last screams of a thousand failed heroes. Having failed to find a worthy champion of the Light, Ashkelon vows to forge Gideon into the hero Sinai needs, and the adversary he craves. As the last of mankind's strength drains away, a hero is born in Darkness.
