A whole new series from the world of the Echo Trilogy. Three years ago, the gods abandoned us. We've been alone ever since. Kat Dubois is immortal, and she's retired. She's long since hung up her sword and left assassinating immortals to someone else...anyone else. She's now a hard drinking, sass-flinging Seattle tattoo artist with the innate ability to read people's fortunes using her charmed deck of tarot cards. Her days of bloodshed are over, and she has nothing but time--an eternity, in fact--to hide from her past. Until someone from her past shows up on her doorstep with news that her beloved older brother and mentor, Dominic, has gone missing. Kat may be the only person with the right skills--and access to the right magic--to track him down. She must confront her past if she's to have any chance of finding and saving her brother. She must fight her demons. She must embrace the power within her. She must become the Ink Witch.

Kat Dubois never asked to be the emissary for the good guys. Diplomacy isn't her strong suit, and patience isn't one of her personal virtues. But when a millennia-old god asks you to do a job to further the war cause, you do that job...especially when you're the opposition's most wanted. Kat's mission is complicated when a mysterious disease crops up among Seattle's homeless population. It's up to her to find a cure while the infection is contained, and to do that, she must go straight to the source--Ouroboros. It's been a week since Kat promised to come after the twisted corporation; the time has come for her to fulfill that promise.

Linked to a website with ‘Meet the Character’ profiles, book excerpt and background stories. Jack Tideswell’s parents died in a tragic diving accident while exploring the underwater ruins of the Pharos lighthouse in Egypt. So Jack wants nothing to do with adventure. Until, that is, a seagull delivers a strange disc – addressed to him in his own handwriting – and he’s catapulted briefly into another time. In the blink of an eye, all kinds of magic are let loose, and Jack finds himself aboard an ocean liner in the throes of a Titanic-like disaster. It all links back to Pharos, the seventh wonder of the world. An ancient power needs to be restored. Can Jack learn to navigate time before it’s too late to save the one person who can help him unravel the secrets of the disc? Whether he likes it or not, there’s no more hiding away. And no looking back. Especially when Alpha is watching. A wolf who sees all there is to see... For readers aged 10 plus, The Mirror of Pharos is a contemporary fantasy with the inventiveness of Philip Reeve’s sci-fi, the excitement of J.K. Rowling’s plots and the timeless quality of a Philippa Pearce classic. ‘A wonderful mix of magic and reality that reminds me of the early books in the Harry Potter series.’ The Bookbag

But could there be more to her story? Perhaps Lady Artemis had envisioned quite a different destiny than the one her father, Zeus, had chosen for her. What if she hadn't merely pined after the giant huntsman, Orion, but had secretly partaken of a forbidden romance with him? From prolific fantasy writer C.K. Brooke comes an original divine novel, in which Artemis's classic myths are retold as never before, in her own voice, as the young goddess sets the record straight and reveals the true account of her immortal life - and love.

"It was the kind of morning that made him wonder if God hated the Irish..." Dublin has been on a knife-edge since the failed rebellion in July, and Jimmy O'Flaherty suspects a newcomer to The Liberties - Kitty Doyle - is mixed up in it. She accuses him of spying for the English, and he thinks she's a reckless troublemaker. All Jimmy wants is to earn enough coin to buy passage to America. But when the English turn his trading patch into a gallows, Jimmy finds himself drawn into the very conflict he's spent his whole life avoiding. "Liberty Boy is a riveting tale of an overlooked rebellion, told from the perspective of the streets, with gifted dialogue that is more heard than read and unexpected twists that leave you breathless from first page to last." - Cindy Vallar, Historical Novel Society Review.

Fannie’s New Orleans house is like no place Ibby has ever been—and Fannie, who has a tendency to end up in the local asylum—is like no one she has ever met. Fortunately, Fannie’s black cook, Queenie, and her smart-mouthed daughter, Dollbaby, take it upon themselves to initiate Ibby into the ways of the South, both its grand traditions and its darkest secrets. For Fannie’s own family history is fraught with tragedy, hidden behind the closed rooms in her ornate Uptown mansion. It will take Ibby’s arrival to begin to unlock the mysteries there. And it will take Queenie and Dollbaby’s hard-won wisdom to show Ibby that family can sometimes be found in the least expected places. For fans of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt and The Help, Dollbaby brings to life the charm and unrest of 1960s New Orleans through the eyes of a young girl learning to understand race for the first time. By turns uplifting and funny, poignant and full of verve, Dollbaby is a novel readers will take to their hearts.

Sherra We belong to the King—those of us with the black roses tattooed on our left wrist, directly over our pulse. As if every beat of our hearts reminds us that we are not our own. Those around us know it, too, and are reluctant to come close. Ten gold coins were paid to my father when I was tested young and then tattooed. Another ten will be paid when the vehicle arrives to take me away. That is the full worth of our lives, as short as they will become. In the King's library, The Book of the Rose says to honor the tattooed women. More than anything, I wanted to spit on its pages. Any girl who wears the tattoo is never befriended, as if our deaths are already assured. Yes, there are tales of some who survive, but I'd never seen any of them. That led me to believe that tales were all they were—with no real survivors. All those women who were found with talent—with the fire burning within them—they were culled and taken to the warriors, to provide more energy. Energy that the warriors would then use to defeat the barbarians from the ocean of sand. Women with black roses on their wrists are emptied of their power by those warriors, who care not that they die a shrunken husk. The King also has no care for these—his subjects who give their lives to repel the vicious hordes in their destructive machines of war. "We fight with what we have," he always says. That means the warriors with the fire within them, who draw more fire from the women who serve them. Until they die. The thought of running away is foolish. The thought of taking a lover before they come for us—also foolish. We must be untouched when they come; else it is a quicker death when they test us again. As for running—there is one thing worse than having a black rose on your wrist. That is for the enemy to find you and see the black rose on your wrist. Your death will be slow and excruciating at their hands.
