Cassandra Clare & Robin Wasserman - November 13, 2018

Through Blood, Through Fire Book CoverDownload Through Blood, Through Fire Free eBook - Cassandra Clare & Robin Wasserman. The eighth story in the Ghosts of the Shadow Market. Celine Montclaire goes to the Shadow Market to escape. She would go anywhere in Paris, or the entire world, to escape the suffering she experiences at the hands of her family. She did not expect to meet Valentine Morgenstern there, or to have him promise her freedom and the heart of the man she secretly loves. On one condition, of course. At the Shadow Market, nothing is for free. Praise for the The Mortal Instruments/The Dark Artifices series: "Positively a quiver with secret ardor and murderous zeal." — Kirkus Reviews "Clare delivers spectacular Shadowhunter fare with her trademark street tough yet emotionally fragile adolescent characters taking on adult roles and includes plenty of violent action and passionate romance to satisfy fans of 'The Infernal Devices' and 'The Mortal Instruments' series, who will be thrilled to see some of their favorite characters from the previous books make appearances. VERDICT A must-have for libraries with devoted Shadowhunter fans, who will undoubtedly be waiting for this emotionally intense beginning to her new series." — School Library Journal About the Authors Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Teheran, Iran and spent much of her childhood traveling the world with her family. She lived in France, England and Switzerland before she was ten years old. Since her family moved around so much she found familiarity in books and went everywhere with a book under her arm. She spent her high school years in Los Angeles where she used to write stories to amuse her classmates, including an epic novel called "The Beautiful Cassandra" based on the eponymous Jane Austen short story (and from which she later took her current pen name). After college, Cassie lived in Los Angeles and New York where she worked at various entertainment magazines and even some rather suspect tabloids. She started working on her YA novel, City of Bones , in 2004, inspired by the urban landscape of Manhattan, her favorite city. In 2007, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, introduced the world to Shadowhunters. The Mortal Instruments concluded in 2014, and includes City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, and City of Heavenly Fire. She also created a prequel series, inspired by A Tale of Two Cities and set in Victorian London. This series, The Infernal Devices, follows bookworm Tessa Gray as she discovers the London Institute in Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, and Clockwork Princess. The sequel series to The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices , where the Shadowhunters take on Los Angeles, began with Lady Midnight, continues with Lord of Shadows and will conclude with Queen of Air and Darkness.   Other books in the Shadowhunters series include The Bane Chronicles , Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, and The Shadowhunter's Codex.  Her books have more than 36 million copies in print worldwide and have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.

Robin Wasserman is a graduate of Harvard University and the author of several successful novels for young adults including the Seven Deadly Sins series, Hacking Harvard, the Skinned trilogy, and  The Book of Blood and Shadow,  as well as  Girls on Fire , her first novel for adults. A recent recipient of a MacDowell fellowship, she lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Endless Book CoverDownload Endless Free eBook - W. Winters. He holds a power over me like no one else ever could. Maybe it’s because my heart begs to beat in time with his.   Maybe it’s because my body bows to his and his alone.   Maybe it’s because he thought he loved me before he even laid eyes on me. He thought wrong, it wasn’t me he thought he loved, and nothing has made me suffer like that little secret has.  He thought I belonged to him, but he was wrong. It was never supposed to be me. Our memories are deceiving, but I know what I want now.  What I need more than anything.  I won’t rest until he’s as much mine as I am his.   It’s always been him.

The Reckoning


John Grisham - October 23, 2018

The Reckoning Book CoverDownload The Reckoning Free eBook - John Grisham. #1 bestselling author John Grisham’s The Reckoning is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.   “A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga… The Reckoning  is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer . Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case.” — USA Today     October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime.  Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.             In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him.  Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling,  The Reckoning  would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.
