Recent high school graduate and amateur surfer Jeff Dean is enjoying the easy life. He lives in a beautiful home on the Jersey Shore, has zero bills to pay. However, when his mother kicks him out of the house on his eighteenth birthday for misbehaving, his peaceful standard of living is ruined

Against his better judgment, Jeff becomes a part of that same deadly world. And before long the couple are forced to go on the run across the United States, before the FBI has a chance to apprehend them for the senseless murders of more than a half dozen innocent people.

DESCRIPTION:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies."--Entertainment Weekly
 
We survived the zombie apocalypse, but how many of us are still haunted by that terrible time? We have (temporarily?) defeated the living dead, but at what cost? Told in the haunting and riveting voices of the men and women who witnessed the horror firsthand, World War Z is the only record of the apocalyptic years.
 
The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

"Will spook you for real."--The New York Times Book Review
 
"Possesses more creativity and zip than entire crates of other new fiction titles. Think Mad Max meets The Hot Zone. . . . It's Apocalypse Now, pandemic-style. Creepy but fascinating."--USA Today
 
"Will grab you as tightly as a dead man's fist. A."--Entertainment Weekly, EW Pick 
 
"Probably the most topical and literate scare since Orson Welles's War of the Worlds radio broadcast . . . This is action-packed social-political satire with a global view."--Dallas Morning News

DESCRIPTION:

As two queens plot each other's destruction, a small band of adventurers continues its quest for the knowledge needed to defeat the mad King Brutus and his unearthly parasite, the Black Queen. Their search brings Morigan and the Wolf to the perilous forests of Alabion, where they and their companions will face the darkness of their pasts--and discover equally dark destinies.

Meanwhile, far from Alabion, the queens of the East and West continue their deadly dance. One seeks a relic of great power, while the other puts her faith in a mix of military and technomagikal force. Both are aware they have a slim window of opportunity to settle their power struggle--after all, Mad Brutus's recent defeat is at best a setback. The mad king is already amassing a new army of soulless husks in the wastelands of Mor'Khul. Unknown to the great powers struggling for control, a father and son wander those same wastelands, scavenging what they can as they weather Brutus's gathering storm. They too have a role to play in Geadhain's fate--a role which may just provide a last remnant of hope.

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Witching Savannah series comes the story of a young witch's quest to uncover her family's terrifying history...

Magic is seeping out of the world, leaving the witches who've relied on it for countless centuries increasingly hopeless. While some see an inevitable end of their era, others are courting madness--willing to sacrifice former allies, friends, and family to retain the power they covet. While the other witches watch their reality unravel, young Alice Marin is using magic's waning days to delve into the mystery of numerous disappearances in the occult circles of New Orleans. Alice disappeared once, too--caged in an asylum by blood relatives. Recently freed, she fears her family may be more involved with the growing crisis than she ever dared imagine.

Yet the more she seeks the truth about her family's troubled history, the more she realizes her already-fragile psyche may be at risk. Discovering the cause of the vanishings, though, could be the only way to escape her mother's reach while determining the future of all witches.

DESCRIPTION:

"Somebody was yelling in the room now, one of the strange men, and her mother was screaming and screaming. But Button was only dimly aware of the sounds. Her consciousness had shrunk down to focus on the body that was blocking her hole--

--and the warm, thick liquid that was dripping onto her hand."


Button is an 11 year old, bubbly and intelligent girl who is haunted in her dreams by a tapping sound…

Living with her mother and father in Cottsborough, Vermont, Button had been trained to hide and not ever answer to her secret name, ‘Rachel'. One day, two men arrive at Button's family home searching for her by this secret name.

Refusing to give Button up, things turn violent and the men shoot her father dead. Through a narrow crack in the floor boards, Button bears witness to the murder.

Eluding the two men who tried to catch her, Button uses her wits to navigate herself from Vermont to Boston and then to New York.

Button has a plan to find her uncle Dromkin.

When her search seems hopeless, Button is taken in by a resident of her uncle's apartment building, Phil, who claims he can help.

But when they find Dromkin sprawled on the floor with his throat cut, Button is convinced she is somehow the cause of these family murders...

Will Phil be able to keep her identity hidden long enough for her to find out the truth?

DESCRIPTION:

The culling struck, killing millions. Anarchy ensued. Gangs fought for control of what was left, picking on those not strong enough to defend themselves. Soon the empty streets were painted with their blood. But, as society struggled to stabilise, there were some who could see the foundations of opportunity buried amongst the ashes.
The 'General' has a vision. He wants to build an army, one strong enough that it can stake a claim on the apocalypse. From inside the dark and dank walls of the young offenders institution his ideas for a strong, new society are being realised; but at what cost?
Like the others, Juliana was snatched during a violent raid on her home. It left her husband dead and her young son hiding in a cupboard. That was nearly ten years ago. If she ever hopes to escape and find her boy, she must first survive the horror and degradation of her forced incarceration. But the years of abuse have taken their toll and things are getting worse. Does she have what it takes to finally escape the clutches of the General and his perverse army of juveniles? Or will the prison see her sent down into the cells below, the ones from where nobody ever returns?
The Human Zoo is a blood-soaked, action horror story set against the urban back drop of a post- apocalyptic London, a dangerous, lawless city where only the strong and merciless will survive. It is the first book in the series.

"Violent, messy, deep, beautiful." - Planar Pen, UK

This is a story about God and the Devil, but not how you were taught to believe. A dark, gritty science-fantasy epic, not for the faint of heart. 

Civil war between demons and angels lies just on the horizon.

Justice Alezair Czynri, newest recruit of the Purgatorial Jury, is thrown into a world of murder, exploitation, mind-altering substances and bureaucratic red-tape as he and his court attempt to diffuse escalating conflicts.

And beneath the turbulent surface, things are very wrong.

Ever since his induction into the Celestial Court, Alezair has been treated with disdain by the Justice Commander, Leid Koseling. A former prisoner of the Nexus Initiative, Justice Czynri exists without any memories of his former life, the consequence of being a slave merc for hire. Whispers in the void tell him there's something more to Leid--more to all of this--but neither the celestials nor his colleagues are willing to divulge their dark history, barbed with slavery, control and genocide.

Yet Purgatory seems strangely familiar, and slowly little pieces start coming back. There might be a good reason why Alezair's boss keeps him at arm's length.

DESCRIPTION:

Get ready for a different kind of ghost story.

Decades ago, six children from across the United States disappeared on the same afternoon. Now the only one who can stop it from happening again is the boy who managed to escape.

Eric Partin doesn't understand what happened thirty years ago. All he knows is that he was taken by strangers and locked in a small room for weeks before he escaped his captors.

Now the other five have been found living seemingly normal adult lives in the small town of Wakefield, Tennessee. But the Wakefield Five aren't like other people. There's something wrong with their minds. The only consistency in their wildly conflicting stories is that they all blame one person for what happened: Eric Partin.

Eric must return to Wakefield to uncover the truth before the evil infects another generation.

From PT Hylton, the author of Regulation 19, comes a tale of a haunting unlike any other.
