Fire from the Author: Kristin Cashore. It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her. Exquisitely romantic, this companion to the highly praised Graceling has an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books. You don't need to have read Graceling to love Fire. But if you haven't, you'll be dying to read it next. This edition includes an article by and an interview with Kristin Cashore, as well as a sneak peek at her next book, Bitterblue!

Trilogy from the Author: Jon Fosse. Trilogy is Jon Fosse's critically acclaimed, luminous love story about Asle and Alida, two lovers trying to find their place in this world. Homeless and sleepless, they wander around Bergen in the rain, trying to make a life for themselves and the child they expect. Through a rich web of historical, cultural, and theological allusions, Fosse constructs a modern parable of injustice, resistance, crime, and redemption. Consisting of three novellas (Wakefulness, Olav's Dreams, and Weariness), Trilogy is a haunting, mysterious, and poignant evocation of love, for which Fosse received The Nordic Council's Prize for Literature in 2015.

Tun Huang from the Author: Yasushi Inoue. More than a thousand years ago, an extraordinary trove of early Buddhist sutras and other scriptures was secreted away in caves near the Silk Road city of Tun-huang. But who hid this magnificent treasure and why? In Tun-huang, the great modern Japanese novelist Yasushi Inoue tells the story of Chao Hsing-te, a young Chinese man whose accidental failure to take the all-important exam that will qualify him as a high government official leads to a chance encounter that draws him farther and farther into the wild and contested lands west of the Chinese Empire. Here he finds love, distinguishes himself in battle, and ultimately devotes himself to the strange task of depositing the scrolls in the caves where, many centuries later, they will be rediscovered. A book of magically vivid scenes, fierce passions, and astonishing adventures, Tun-huang is also a profound and stirring meditation on the mystery of history and the hidden presence of the past.

from the Author: Френк Герберт. «Дюна» зробила Френка Герберта відомим на весь світ і, обігнавши в рейтингах навіть «Володаря перснів», виборола престижні літературні нагороди: премію Г’юґо і премію Неб’юла в категорії «Найкращий роман», премію SFinks як «Книга року», неодноразове визнання від журналу «Локус» у категорії «Найкращий роман усіх часів». Ця культова сага — про вічну боротьбу і жагу до перемоги, про ціну справедливості і вибір шляху. Меланж, або прянощі, — найцінніша і найрідкісніша речовина у всесвіті, яка може все: від подовження життя до сприяння міжзоряним подорожам. І знайти її можна лише на одній планеті — непривітному пустельному Арракісі. Той, хто володарює на Арракісі, контролює прянощі. А хто контролює прянощі — керує всесвітом. Коли Імператор позбавляє клан Харконненів звання правлячого і віддає цей титул Атрідам, Харконнени вбивають герцога Лето Атріда. Його син Пол і наложниця Джессіка тікають у пустелю. Щоб помститися за батька і відвоювати планету в Харконненів, Пол має здобути довіру фримерів — корінних мешканців Арракіса — і повести крихітну армію проти незліченних сил супротивника.

Maskerade from the Author: Terry Pratchett. The Ghost in the bone-white mask who haunts theAnkh-Morpork Opera House was always considered a benign presence -- some would even say lucky -- until he started killing people. The sudden rash of bizarre backstage deaths now threatens to mar the operatic debut of country girl Perdita X. (nee Agnes) Nitt, she of the ample body and ampler voice. Perdita's expected to hide in the chorus and sing arias out loud while a more petitely presentable soprano mouths the notes. But at least it's an escape from scheming Nanny Ogg and old Granny Weatherwax back home, who want her to join their witchy ranks. Once Granny sets her mind on something, however, it's difficult -- and often hazardous -- to dissuade her. And no opera-prowling phantom fiend is going to keep a pair of determined hags down on the farm after they've seen Ankh-Morpork.
