For some, true love can last a thousand lifetimes . . . An epic family saga begins to unfold as The Legacy of Blood—the first in the series—draws you in and centers you around the lives of William and Quinnlyn, two lost souls whose all-encompassing love they share for one another surpasses the boundaries of time and mortality itself. William—the real-life royal son and heir of England's once-great king, William the Conqueror—finds himself standing among the magnificent and picturesque gardens of Hampton Court Palace one day, staring across at a rare beauty in green that captivates his every fiber, his every sense. He is drawn to her like no other lady before, knowing without qualm nor question that his heart would forever belong to her and to her alone, that it would be the day he would remember eternally, the day that all became lost. Only it is not one set within the bookends of his supposed life, but in that of early 18th century London—about 600 years after the medieval historians account of his untimely death. For it was known among few that he and his chosen siblings carried within their lifeblood their ancestral line of the Sanguivore—the vampyre. Quinnlyn—a Highland lass born in the tumultuous times of late 13th century Scotland—possesses a few secrets of her own, however. One, being that she still-unexplainably cannot die. And two, as she later comes to discover, that she is able to see and feel the myriad-colored auras of those around her—linking each person's emotions, each person's lifeforce with that of her own. And the key to unlocking this new-found power within: her William. Only trouble is, the thought of losing him one day to the inevitable, that he should have to shed his mortal coil and leave this world without her, forces her to make a life-altering decision—one in which she cannot escape—in order to spare them both the pain of a doomed future together before she becomes lost in him for good. A love that transcends all lies, all deceit, all secrets kept and revealed. A love that goes beyond the barriers of all life, all death, all time as we know it. A love unbidden, and unforgotten. With heart, passion, and plenty of character-driven soul, The Legacy of Blood is a romantic historical fantasy set dually in the Septembers of both 1710—when they first meet—and then 300 years later in modern-day London—where their fates unexpectedly intertwine themselves once again as each unknowingly seeks to relive their treasured moments caught within the memories of that month shared so long ago. Flashbacks build up at last to reveal a dark and crucial past in the royal family's legacy as it spans the course of over ten centuries—enchantingly bringing to the forefront the lives of William and Quinnlyn throughout the most pivotal times in their perpetual existence, the experiences that shaped them into exactly who they are and who they'll forever become. And the true love that binds them—past, present, and evermore.

The debut novel from the PEN/Faulkner Award Winning Author of The Buddha in the Attic On a sunny day in Berkeley, California, in 1942, a woman sees a sign in a post office window, returns to her home, and matter-of-factly begins to pack her family's possessions. Like thousands of other Japanese Americans they have been reclassified, virtually overnight, as enemy aliens and are about to be uprooted from their home and sent to a dusty internment camp in the Utah desert. In this lean and devastatingly evocative first novel, Julie Otsuka tells their story from five flawlessly realized points of view and conveys the exact emotional texture of their experience: the thin-walled barracks and barbed-wire fences, the omnipresent fear and loneliness, the unheralded feats of heroism. When the Emperor Was Divine is a work of enormous power that makes a shameful episode of our history as immediate as today's headlines.

Catherine O'Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can't for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club. Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club's board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub - a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out? Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn't, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, un-collared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future? Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it's not in their contract?

From the renowned and best-selling author of A History of God, a sweeping exploration of religion and the history of human violence. For the first time, religious self-identification is on the decline in American. Some analysts have cited as cause a post-9/11perception: that faith in general is a source of aggression, intolerance, and divisiveness—something bad for society. But how accurate is that view? With deep learning and sympathetic understanding, Karen Armstrong sets out to discover the truth about religion and violence in each of the world’s great traditions, taking us on an astonishing journey from prehistoric times to the present. While many historians have looked at violence in connection with particular religious manifestations (jihad in Islam or Christianity’s Crusades), Armstrong looks at each faith—not only Christianity and Islam, but also Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Daoism, and Judaism—in its totality over time. As she describes, each arose in an agrarian society with plenty powerful landowners brutalizing peasants while also warring among themselves over land, then the only real source of wealth. In this world, religion was not the discrete and personal matter it would become for us but rather something that permeated all aspects of society. And so it was that agrarian aggression, and the warrior ethos it begot, became bound up with observances of the sacred. In each tradition, however, a counterbalance to the warrior code also developed. Around sages, prophets, and mystics there grew up communities protesting the injustice and bloodshed endemic to agrarian society, the violence to which religion had become heir. And so by the time the great confessional faiths came of age, all understood themselves as ultimately devoted to peace, equality, and reconciliation, whatever the acts of violence perpetrated in their name. Industrialization and modernity have ushered in an epoch of spectacular and unexampled violence, although, as Armstrong explains, relatively little of it can be ascribed directly to religion. Nevertheless, she shows us how and in what measure religions, in their relative maturity, came to absorb modern belligerence—and what hope there might be for peace among believers of different creeds in our time. At a moment of rising geopolitical chaos, the imperative of mutual understanding between nations and faith communities has never been more urgent, the dangers of action based on misunderstanding never greater. Informed by Armstrong’s sweeping erudition and personal commitment to the promotion of compassion, Fields of Blood makes vividly clear that religion is not the problem.

"The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and Faulkner," writes esteemed literary scholar Harold Bloom in his Introduction to the Modern Library edition. "I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable." Cormac McCarthy's masterwork, Blood Meridian, chronicles the brutal world of the Texas-Mexico borderlands in the mid-nineteenth century. Its wounded hero, the teenage Kid, must confront the extraordinary violence of the Glanton gang, a murderous cadre on an official mission to scalp Indians and sell those scalps. Loosely based on fact, the novel represents a genius vision of the historical West, one so fiercely realized that since its initial publication in 1985 the canon of American literature has welcomed Blood Meridian to its shelf. "A classic American novel of regeneration through violence," declares Michael Herr. "McCarthy can only be compared to our greatest writers." From the Hardcover edition.
