The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS
 
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

“A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.” – New York Times

Q&A with Andy Weir

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

“Believing is Seeing”

In the tradition of such favorite classics as Gulliver’s Travels and Journey to the Center of the Earth, Voyage of the Basset takes the reader on a fantastical journey of discovery. Through richly detailed full-color paintings and line drawings, magical kingdoms emerge from a sea of dreams.

Cassandra Aisling, who is nine years and eleven months old, doesn’t care “a jot” about what sensible people think. She likes strange, mysterious, and magical things. So when her world gets tumbled upside down, she boards the H.M.S. Basset, ready to explore the landscape of her imagination. Pledging allegiance to the Basset’s motto, “Credendo do Vides…Believing is Seeing,” Cassandra, her skeptical older sister Miranda, and their father, Professor Algernon Aisling, set out in search of the ancient legends. From the flickering flight of fairies and the mermaids’ siren songs to a labyrinth-bound Minotaur and a fire-breathing dragon, the Aisling family witnesses firsthand the wonder of mythological worlds.

In this lavishly illustrated edition, Cassandra’s adventures intertwine with her father’s scientific scribblings to present both new tales and the essence of classical myths. From the two voices, readers learn the power of imagination, the importance of believing in oneself, the value of family, and the need for creative, cooperative problem-solving. The story of a magical journey and the exquisite fantasy artwork will appeal to young and old alike.

Read Review

“Like an arrow in the hand of a warrior, so are the sons of those who have been shaken. Hurl lightning bolts and scatter them. Shoot your arrows and rout them.”

King David, circa 1000 BC

Wyatt Striker hated to admit that he was nervous. A senator he had treated in the ER after a mountain biking accident had invited Wyatt and his wife to a party at his vacation home near Tijuana. Unfortunately he did not mention that a dozen of California’s most influential people would be there, too. He knew he had faced far worse situations during his glory days in special ops, but he hardly thought his training would help with this one.

When he arrived at the house early, however, he was caught off guard by what seemed to be a two-bit burglar. The thief’s behavior, which included nearly putting a peephole in Wyatt’s cranium, suggested something much more dangerous.

Shaken, he returned home to find his sister-in-law tied to a chair in the kitchen, his son gone, and a ransom note on the table. As he attempts to connect the dots, he discovers that the captor is less interested in the money than in Wyatt. Confused and determined, he sets off to unravel the web of leads and players. Will his calm and careful mind and the resources he can muster be enough to outsmart the captor? Will he discover the deadly identity of his adversary before it’s too late?

In this fast-paced action adventure, Brent Russell weaves a tapestry of mystery, suspense, and good-old-fashioned fight scenes described in a uniquely thrilling voice.

The oldest of five, she must protect her siblings from the physical threats lurking around every tree, bush and rock. Next in line to rule one of the most technologically advanced civilizations in the galaxy, her father orders her to do her duty and select a mate from those deemed suitable by law.

It is NOT easy to create a fascinating alien world, so that it is as original as it is unique. Kendrick managed to do it in “Memoirs of the Alien Princess”. Great read, and plenty of brilliant ideas for a movie! The species of the princess? “Windalfluff”. Now, that’s some powerful imagination at work.

Portals to other dimensions. Space cruisers. Colonies on Mars. Laser assault rifles. The Dimension Rippers is an exciting testament to the fresh blood of the next generation of science-fiction. Strap yourself in and prepare for launch on a fast-paced, action-packed, inter-dimensional science-fiction adventure!

Welcome to the year 2097.

Thomas Larkin is a college student stranded in a world brimming with revolutionary conveniences like 3-D printers, hover-cars, teleporters and apartment AI systems complete with colorful personalities. Yet, despite such amenities, Thomas feels himself a prisoner to loneliness; adrift in a dull, corporate-driven, dreamless and directionless society. Longing to escape. Craving an adventure.

Thomas prefers living vicariously through his uncle, Commander Custer J. Larkin. Custer is part of a secret research program in orbit around Mars, code-named Whirlpool. Unbeknownst to Thomas (and the rest of humanity), the Whirlpool project has managed to rip into alternate dimensions parallel to our own. When a rogue member of the Whirlpool team absconds with a priceless Dimension Ripper portal, Custer is launched on a desperate mission to recover the stolen property.

Before embarking upon his volatile mission, Custer dispatches an urgent message to his beloved nephew, delivering Thomas a mission of his own. A mission which propels Thomas on the adventure of a lifetime, to find the “mystery man on Mars.”

Thomas soars through the chaotic skies of futuristic San Francisco, stalks the domed streets and dive bars of the Martian colony Cresco, and teams up with the gorgeous and intrepid reporter Maya St. Phoenix, the famous “redhead on the Red Planet.” Together, these two are rocketed off on a roller-coaster thrill-ride across the multi-verse to locate and rescue Thomas’ uncle.

And, it is rumored that, somewhere across the infinite sprawl of the multi-verse, there exists a utopian dimension. A place that will alter Thomas’ downtrodden worldview and change his life forever. But it may take going through hell to get there…

  How to be a Hero is a magical realism tale about a young, brash little boy named Amith. He and his best friend Shaneel play together in the streets of their isolated, poverty-stricken village in India. They sneak through alleyways and sit on top of walls to get glimpses of movies that inspire their clever fantasies. Because, in their minds, they are not kids, they are heroes. So they dream like only children can, imagining stories and creating wondrous illusions of being heroes just to escape the sickness and death that surround them. But then, death makes its presence felt, as someone very close becomes ill, and the kids once imagined skills are put to the real test. After being inspired by a movie that they think is real, they venture out into the foreboding Indian Jungle to find the Holy Grail to cure them of their troubles. But they are not alone. Accompanying them is a lonely, love-stricken, relentless little girl, named Karishma, who leads them into the depths of the darkness. And it is in this abyss-like mysterious and unending jungle where they are taken to their very limits.
  Friendships are on the line, bravery is put to the test, and love plays its dirty tricks, as the very real danger of reality surfaces and the kids are forced to suffer the consequences of their actions. Hopes, dreams, truth, and regret fill their minds, as they realize they are the most fragile creatures in the jungle, and they must each find out what it truly means to be a hero.

A tyrant has been stopped. A new adversary, far more dangerous than the last, has emerged. The war has only just begun.

“It has been four months since I murdered my husband, Eric Dane. Four months since the battle that was supposed to change our world. The year is 2044, and although we may have won the battle, the war is far from over. We believed that our mission was accomplished, that freedom was finally within our grasp. We were wrong. We now face a new danger, one without a face, without a name. An unknown enemy who is far more dangerous than Eric Dane ever was.

Who is this adversary lurking in the shadows and pulling all the strings? My father is missing and Aidan is gone. I have to dig deep to find the strength to go on, but with the support of Reed, strong, fearless, and my equal in every respect, I feel that nothing is impossible. We are exploring new frontiers and finding allies in the most unlikely group of heroes. With a NUSA convoy let loose in the Rebeldom to hunt me down, I must prepare to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the people I love and have sworn to protect.

My name is Rebecca Davis. I am a super-soldier, a mother, a daughter, and a friend. And I am the leader of The Legion. More importantly, I am a woman who will not stop until this war is finally, truly over.”

The Legion is the gripping sequel to The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) with more twists and turns than ever before, and an ending that cries out for the final chapter.

Mars in 1816 is a world of high society, deadly danger, and strange clockwork machines. Pterodactyls glide through the sky, automatic servants hand out sandwiches at elegant garden parties, and in the north, the great dragon tombs hide marvels of Ancient Martian technology.

Twelve-year-old Edward Sullivan has always dreamed of becoming a spy like the ones he reads of in his favorite sci-fi magazine, Thrilling Martian Tales. Instead, he spends his days keeping his eccentric family from complete disaster . . . that is, until the villainous archaeologist Sir Titus Dane kidnaps Edward’s parents as part of a scheme to loot an undiscovered dragon tomb. Edward sets out on a perilous journey to save his parents and protect the dragon tombs in the process. Turns out spywork is a bit more challenging than he had imagined. . . .

Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire is a classic adventure story, full of fun, humor and heart with stunning illustrations by Jeremy Holmes throughout. The intergalactic fun and adventure continues in Book 2 of the Secrets of the Dragon Tomb series, The Emperor of Mars.

Science fiction meets classic adventure tales in this quirky novel, and it’s a real treat to know that it’s the first in an intended series.” ?The Bulletin
