              What if you weren't the hero? As a bard's apprentice, Kihrin grew up with tales of legendary deeds. He also steals, desperate to buy a way out of Quur's slums. Then he raids the wrong house, he's marked by a demon and life will never be the same again. Kihrin's plight brings him ...to the attention of royalty, who claim him as the lost son of their immoral prince. But far from living the dream, Kihrin's at the mercy of his new family's ruthless ambitions. However, escaping his jewelled cage just makes matters worse. Kihrin is horrified to learn he's at the centre of an ancient prophecy. And every side - from gods and demons to dragons and mages - want him as their pawn. Those old stories lied about many things too, especially the myth that the hero always wins. Then again, maybe Kihrin isn't the hero, for he's not destined to save the empire. He's destined to destroy it.

              This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant's Manifesto (Audio CD / Audio)

              An impassioned argument for why America needs more immigrants. There are few subjects in American life that prompt more discussion and controversy than immigration. But do we really understand it? In This Land Is Their Land, the renowned author Suketu Mehta attacks the issue head...-on. Drawing on his own experience as an Indian-born teenager growing up in New York City and on years of reporting around the world, Mehta subjects the worldwide anti-immigrant backlash to withering scrutiny. As he explains, the West is being destroyed not by immigrants but by the fear of immigrants. Mehta juxtaposes the phony narratives of populist ideologues with the ordinary heroism of laborers, nannies, and others, from Dubai to Queens, and explains why more people are on the move today than ever before. As civil strife and climate change reshape large parts of the planet, it is little surprise that borders have become so porous. But Mehta also stresses the destructive legacies of colonialism and global inequality on large swathes of the world: When today's immigrants are asked, Why are you here?, they can justly respond, We are here because you were there. And now that they are here, as Mehta demonstrates, immigrants bring great benefits, enabling countries and communities to flourish. Impassioned, rigorous, and richly stocked with memorable stories and characters, This Land Is Their Land is a timely and necessary intervention, and literary polemic of the highest order.

              From the bestselling author of the Sandman Slim series, a lush, dark, stand-alone fantasy built off the insurgent tradition of China Mieville and M. John Harrison-a subversive tale that immerses us in a world where the extremes of bleakness and beauty exist together in dangerous ...harmony in a city on the edge of civility and chaos. The Great War is over. The city of Lower Proszawa celebrates the peace with a decadence and carefree spirit as intense as the war's horrifying despair. But this newfound hedonism-drugs and sex and endless parties-distracts from strange realities of everyday life: Intelligent automata taking jobs. Genetically engineered creatures that serve as pets and beasts of war. A theater where gruesome murders happen twice a day. And a new plague that even the ceaseless euphoria can't mask. Unlike others who live strictly for fun, Largo is an addict with ambitions. A bike messenger who grew up in the slums, he knows the city's streets and its secrets intimately. His life seems set. He has a beautiful girlfriend, drugs, a chance at a promotion-and maybe, an opportunity for complete transformation: a contact among the elite who will set him on the course to lift himself up out of the streets. But dreams can be a dangerous thing in a city whose mood is turning dark and inward. Others have a vision of life very different from Largo's, and they will use any methods to secure control. And in behind it all, beyond the frivolity and chaos, the threat of new war always looms.

              Summer vacation is Levi London's favorite time of the year. Each summer, he and his brothers are shipped off to Florida to stay with their grandparents. For 10 weeks everything is perfect. He has freedom, fun, and Summer West - the cute and spunky girl across the street - for who...m he's planned to confess his giant crush. Right before the London boys are scheduled to leave, a scandalous family situation causes their mom to accompany them on vacation. Not only does Levi's fun quotient promise to take a nosedive, but all the drama has him feeling less than his normal happy self. Summer decides that Levi needs a distraction in the form of a prank war. But he gets more than he bargains for when his older brother, Lucas, is both better at pranking and determined to date Summer too. Levi is a peacekeeper, but he isn't sure he can mediate his family's struggles or strike the right balance between mischief and romance. Especially when Lucas keeps reminding him that all is fair in love and war. This book may contain negative triggers for people with a family history of infidelity.
