National best selling author Barb Hendee presents a dark, fascinating new world and the story of two sisters who will discover they have far more power than they ever envisioned.... In a small village in the nation of Droevinka, orphaned sisters Cline and Amelie Fawe scrape out a living selling herbal medicines in their apothecary shop. Cline earns additional money by posing as a seer and pretending to read people´s futures. But they exist in a land of great noble houses, all vying for power, and when the sisters refuse the orders of a warlord prince, they must flee and are forced to depend on the warlord prince´s brother, Anton, for a temporary haven. A series of bizarre deaths of pretty young girls is plaguing the village surrounding Prince Anton´s castle. He offers Cline and Amelie permanent protection if they can use their ´´skills´´ to find the killer. With little choice, the sisters enter a world unknown to them - of fine gowns and banquets and advances from powerful men. Their survival depends on catching a murderer who appears to walk through walls and vanish without a trace - and the danger grows with each passing night. 1. Language: English.

The judge told Carl that one day he´d have to decide exactly what kind of person he would become. But on Phoenix Island, the choice will be made for him. A champion boxer with a sharp hook and a short temper, 16-year-old Carl Freeman has been shuffled from foster home to foster home. He can´t seem to stay out of trouble - using his fists to defend weaker classmates from bullies. His latest incident sends his opponent to the emergency room, and now the court is sending Carl to the worst place on earth: Phoenix Island. Classified as a ´´terminal facility´´, it´s the end of the line for delinquents who have no home, no family, and no future. Located somewhere far off the coast of the United States - and immune to its laws - the island is a grueling Spartan-style boot camp run by sadistic drill sergeants who show no mercy to their young, orphan trainees. Sentenced to stay until his 18th birthday, Carl plans to play by the rules, so he makes friends with his wisecracking bunkmate, Ross, and a mysterious gray-eyed girl named Octavia. But he makes enemies, too, and after a few rough scrapes, he earns himself the nickname ´´Hollywood´´ as well as a string of punishments, including a brutal night in the ´´sweatbox´´. But that´s nothing compared to what awaits him in the ´´Chop Shop´´ - a secret government lab where Carl is given something he never dreamed of. A new life.... A new body. A new brain. Gifts from the fatherly Old Man, who wants to transform Carl into something he´s not sure he wants to become. For this is no ordinary government project. Phoenix Island is ground zero for the future of combat intelligence. And for Carl, it´s just the beginning. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirby Heyborne.

Fans of Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen, get ready. If you haven´t yet discovered wisecracking sleuth Stewart ´´Hoagy´´ Hoag and his faithful basset hound, Lulu, you´re in for a sharp, hilarious treat. Once upon a time, Hoagy had it all: a hugely successful debut novel, a gorgeous celebrity wife, the glamorous world of New York City at his feet. These days, he scrapes by as a celebrity ghostwriter. A celebrity ghostwriter who finds himself investigating murders more often than he´d like. And, once upon a time, Richard Aintree was the most famous writer in America - high school students across the country read his one and only novel, a modern classic on par with The Catcher in the Rye. But after his wife´s death, Richard went into mourning...and then into hiding. No one has heard from him in 20 years. Until now. Richard Aintree - or someone pretending to be Richard Aintree - has at last reached out to his two estranged daughters. Monette is a lifestyle queen à la Martha Stewart whose empire is crumbling; and, once upon a time, Reggie was the love of Hoagy´s life. Both sisters have received mysterious typewritten letters from their father. Hoagy is already on the case, having been hired to ghostwrite a tell-all book about the troubled Aintree family. But no sooner does he set up shop in the pool house of Monette´s Los Angeles mansion than murder strikes. With Lulu at his side - or more often cowering in his shadow - it´s up to Hoagy to unravel the mystery, catch the killer, and pour himself that perfect single-malt Scotch...before it´s too late. 1.
