Levi Black delivers in Black Goat Blues, the Lovecraft-inspired sequel to the dark fantasy Red Right Hand, which Jonathan Maberry calls ´´A perfect blend of old-school horror and modern storytelling sorcery´´. In Red Right Hand, Charlie Tristan Moore was thrust into a nightmarish world of lurking Lovecraftian horrors when The Man In Black, a diabolical Elder God, chose her as his unwilling Acolyte. Discovering her own power, Charlie ultimately defied The Man In Black, but at a cost. Now armed with a magic coat made from the skin of a flayed angel, Charlie is out to destroy The Man In Black and save her boyfriend Daniel - and she doesn´t care how many bloodthirsty gods and monsters get in her way.... 1.

How far would you go to save your family? Midsummer used to be a day of feasts and bonfires. A day when cares were set aside for the joy of grass between our toes, warm hands in our palms, laughter in our hearts. Our celebrations dimmed with the light. Something upset the balance of our woods. Something so deep that even our bonfires can´t lure the sun back. And he has something to do with it. Of that we´re sure, which is why I´m being given to him. K. M. Rice is a national award-winning screenwriter and author who has worked for both Magic Leap and Weta Workshop.

If you stay with the Lorcan Guard, you will honor your original vow, it is true. But you shall remain forever a shadow of the rose... For as long as she could remember, Sarah had wanted to be a knight. One fated evening, a man with dark eyes appeared at her mother´s modest inn and told her a story of love, loss, loyalty, honor, and a life of which Sarah had only dreamed. Devastated when the man is condemned to the dungeons by her own father, Sarah was told she would never see him again. She safeguarded his story and secrets, resigned to them forever being the treasures of her imagination. More than 20 years later, he reappears, offering Sarah an opportunity beyond her wildest dreams. A half-mortal, illegitimate child of a lesser court, Sarah´s struggle only begins with leaving all she has known. Her hope for a better future, amid the prejudice of those who look down upon her tainted blood, is maintained by a blossoming love, and being personally trained by the court´s captains. An unexpected turn of events gives Sarah an opportunity to change her fate - a position of leadership in the Black Rose Guard. But to accept will mean abandoning both the man she has come to love and her vow to Captain Edward. Loyalty and desire clash in one woman´s quest to find her place in the immortal guard. 1.

Fifteen-year-old Jackson is different from the other children at the foundling hospital. Scales sometimes cover his arms. Tentacles coil just below his skin. Despite this Jackson tries to fit in with the other children. He tries to be normal for Sister Jerome Grace and the priests. But when a woman asks for a boy like him, all that changes. His name is pinned to his jacket and an orphan train whisks him across the country to Macquarie´s. At Macquarie´s, Jackson finds a home unlike any he could have imagined. The bronze lions outside the doors eat whomever they deem unfit to enter, the hallways and rooms shift and change at will, and Cressida - the woman who adopted him - assures him he no longer has to hide what he is. But new freedoms hide dark secrets. There are territories, allegiances, and a kraken in the basement that eats shadows. As Jackson learns more about the new world he´s living in and about who he is, he has to decide who he will stand with: Cressida, the woman who gave him a home and a purpose, or Mae, the black-eyed lion tamer with a past as enigmatic as his own. The Kraken Sea is a fast paced adventure full of mystery, fates, and writhing tentacles just below the surface, and in the middle of it all is a boy searching for himself. 1. Language: English.
