Twelve gods and twelve races hang in the balance as the Ursa Major, demigod and leader of the werebear people, seizes control, throwing a world into disarray. Psi is just six years away from earning freedom from her ward when she receives devastating news: she’s being forced to marry a man she finds repulsive. In her panic, she uses magic, summoning a glowing stone that gives her the power to escape. Aided by Arcos, her anxious werebear boyfriend, Psi is thrust into a perilous wilderness where only her wits and her newfound power can save her. Little does she know that the stone she’s summoned contains the power of a god and the wrath of the Ursa himself.

A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars.
Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts.
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets.
But eventually Mercer learns far too much, and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver it.

The very future of Tyrrhia is endangered when assassins target Alban, the beloved king, while his wife, Queen Idala, lies on the brink of death after giving birth to quadruplets whose conception was marked by dark magic. With the king and queen’s firstborn son far too young to assume the throne should the worst befall, all five children will end up in the care of the queen’s brother, Duke Stefano, and his Romani Duchessa, Luciana, who are expecting their own fairy-blessed child.
At this uncertain time, magical and diabolical plots converge, threatening the young heirs, their guardians, and the peace and stability of the kingdom. Stefano and Luciana must walk the tightrope of political intrigues that threaten all they hold dear, and through their wits and derring-do—aided by the power and skills of the Rom—preserve their children, their peoples and their kingdom.

Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler’s new anthology brings together the most cunning, ruthless, and brilliant criminals in mystery fiction, for the biggest compendium of bad guys (and girls) ever assembled.
The best mysteries–whether detective, historical, police procedural, cozy, or comedy–have one thing in common: a memorable perpetrator. For every Sherlock Holmes or Sam Spade in noble pursuit, there’s a Count Dracula, a Lester Leith, or a Jimmy Valentine. These are the rogues and villains who haunt our imaginations–and who often have more in common with their heroic counterparts than we might expect. Now, for the first time ever, Otto Penzler gathers the iconic traitors, thieves, con men, sociopaths, and killers who have crept through the mystery canon over the past 150 years, captivating and horrifying readers in equal measure. The 72 handpicked stories in this collection introduce us to the most depraved of psyches, from iconic antiheroes like Maurice Leblanc’s Arsène Lupin and Sax Rohmer’s Dr. Fu Manchu to contemporary delinquents like Lawrence Block’s Ehrengraf and Donald Westlake’s Dortmunder, and include unforgettable tales by Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Washington Irving, Jack London, H.G. Wells, Sinclair Lewis, O. Henry, Edgar Wallace, Leslie Charteris, Erle Stanley Gardner, Edward D. Hoch, Max Allan Collins, Loren D. Estleman, and many more.

Quattrocentosettantasette giorni prima, Trevor è salito sul primo aereo per l’America. Quattrocentosettantasette giorni dopo, lontano da Barcellona e dal suo tormentato passato, Bia si lascia scivolare dalle mani la tazza di tè caldo e viene baciata dal ragazzo che, diventato uomo, è tornato per riprendersela. Bia ha solo pochi ricordi di Trevor: il tradimento con Agnes. L’arroganza dei suoi occhi di ghiaccio. Il suo non volerla; il suo allontanarla. L’amore di lei, che non sembra essere mai bastato per conquistare quel cuore di pietra, freddo come l’inverno. Ma ora, sembra tutto diverso: ora è Trevor ad aver bisogno di lei. Ora è lui a passare le sue notti abbracciato a un cuscino, desiderando solo di riaverla. Adesso è lui a essersi innamorato, sul serio, della ragazzina dai lunghi capelli rosso fuoco che chiama Streghetta. Tutto si era fermato in quella piscina, con il corpo inerme e ferito di lei, l’anima in pezzi di lui e due cuori spediti all’Inferno. Sembrava…
