Aside from Skade’s frustrations, something seems fishy about the whole competition. After one of Skade’s classmates has a strange nightmare about it, they start to wonder if the games are one big cover-up for something more sinister. And when the Asgard team finds themselves on thin ice, it’s up to Skade to overcome a big fear, save her friend—and show everyone what she’s made of!

But here is a vision that comes to me; Adventure for you is about to start. Near Asgard you must find the heart. A Secret world there hides away, which holds the power to stop doomsday!” When eleven-year-old Freya hears that prophecy from her magical jewel, she isn’t sure what to make of it. Doomsday? She will find the key? Mere seconds after that prediction, she receives a mysterious invitation to Asgard Academy from the powerful Odin, who commands her to “bring her magic” to Asgard. With encouragement from her twin, Frey, Freya reluctantly heads out on their new adventure. And Freya’s first challenge begins before she even steps foot in Asgard. While trying to navigate the treacherous Bifrost Bridge, she drops her magical jewel off the bridge, and a sneaky pair of dwarves take her jewel down to the world of Midgard! Without that jewel, Freya thinks she is powerless. But with the help of her pod-mates at Asgard, Freya discovers a world that is bigger and more mysterious that she ever imagined! There, she learns the true terror that Ragnarok—the doomsday her jewel warned her about—could mean for Asgard Academy if she and her new friends, the Thunder Girls, don’t stop it!

Enter the mind of a madman in the stunning crime novel The Thunder of Nautilus. The story takes place in the sprawling Wiltshire countryside. Malcolm Macbeth is a psychopath. Incarcerated at age eighteen, he spends years as a patient in a psychiatric institution. Once released, he takes revenge by killing the prosecutor he holds responsible for his internment. After the murder, he meets a woman in a nightclub, who invites him for drinks back at her desolate farmhouse, where her accomplice is waiting. They overpower Malcolm and lock him up in the basement. Calling themselves "the disciples of Hades," they are Satanists and have their own version of dark rites planned that will sacrifice Malcolm. Not far from the farmhouse stands a manor house, whose owner is a former forensic psychiatrist who had been consulted in Malcolm's attempted murder case years ago. A cottage near the manor has been purchased by a gay interior decorator named Nigel who takes along a friend to spend some time in the quiet countryside. Their country visit doesn't turn out to be so quiet after all, as investigators discover events that the devil himself could not have conceived in a more hideous and gruesome fashion. Christa Ingrid Stempel grew up in Hamburg, Germany. A fan of gothic writers Daphne du Maurier, Emily Bronte and Mary Shelley, she believes the English countryside's grand houses, drafty castles, and fog-covered moors provide the perfect backdrop for mystery, murder, and dark thoughts.

In that place where you're more asleep than awake any more, I hear something else. A phrase uttered in a child's voice, no more than a whisper: Night Night. Something freaky's going on with Sunshine's new house . . . there's the chill that wraps itself around her bones, the giggling she can hear in the dead of night, and then the strange shadows that lurk in her photographs. But the more weird stuff that happens, the less her mum believes her. Sunshine's always had a quirky affiliation with the past, but this time, history is getting much too close for comfort . . . If there is something, or someone, haunting her house, what do they want? And what will they do if Sunshine can't help them? As things become more frightening and dangerous, and the giggles she hears turn to sobs and screams, Sunshine has no choice but to accept what she is, face the test before her and save her mother from a fate worse than death.
