'Paranormal and show-business power struggles make for hard-to-put-down entertainment.' - Booklist 'The Women of the Otherworld universe has expanded and gained further definition with this latest entry. . . . If Kelly Armstrong writes it, then you should add it to your reading list if you want a darn good tale.' - HuntressReviews.com Paige Winterbourne is a witch. Not that you'd notice - no warts, no green skin, no cute little wiggle of the nose whenever she casts a spell. No, most of the time she's just a normal 23-year-old girl; works too hard, worries about her weight, wonders if she'll ever find a boyfriend. Okay, so she does have an adopted teenage daughter, Savannah, who wants to raise her black witch of a mother from the dead. And who is being stalked by a telekinetic half-demon and an all-powerful cabal of sorcerers. But other than that, Paige has a really ordinary life. That is, until the neighbours find out who she is, and all hell breaks loose. Literally... Another edge-of-the-seat, hugely entertaining supernatural thriller from a rising star.

Wu Gang Shu fights for a free Periphery, the side that lost the Civil War. Some call him a Freedom Fighter, others a Terrorist. Wu prefers the word: Revolutionary.

The man who taught her everything she knew is on a backwater planet name Saint Aloysius and nothing in the spiral arm is going to stop her bringing him home in chains. Not even the wanted terrorist tied up in her ship's hold is going to get in her way. But Saint Aloysius is a planet where the Civil War never ended. Marines and Insurgents trade bullets, bombs and blood on the streets of the capital every day. To bring her old mentor to justice, Penny will need to understand what it is she fights for and how far she will go to see the fight through.

When Lee Smith, one of the country's preeminent authors, learned that the only salvation for her rural Virginia hometown meant, in a sense, it destruction, she was compelled to tell the story. Working with Debbie Raines, an English teacher at Grundy High School, and students from the school's Oral Communication Seminar, she has produced a rich oral history. Archival and contemporary photographs depict a small town ravaged by decades of flooding. In this volume, we journey with Lee Smith and the townspeople of Grundy, in a literal and figurative sense, as they anchor their town on higher ground to begin anew.
