Ashes Reborn

A deadly virus turns up the heat on a dangerous investigation in the blazing-hot new installment of the Souls of Fire series from the *New York Times* best-selling author of *Flameout*.
The clock is ticking as Emberly – a phoenix capable of taking human form – races to take revenge against the sadistic and mysterious Rinaldo. The elusive rebel leader threatens to keep killing until he is given all of the research about a plague-like virus derived from vampire blood.
Forced to reach out to the Paranormal Investigations Team (PIT) for help, Emberly and her partner, Jackson, must decide who to trust as they follow the trail of dead bodies. When classified information is leaked and their safe house ambushed, Emberly’s suspicions are confirmed – someone at PIT has betrayed them.
A final battle looms and Emberly will need to command all her powers – or watch the world turn to ash.

Ash Addict

All I wanted was to raise something demonic from the Nolands to test my wizardly mettle, but I got a lot more than I bargained for. Not from the beastie, that was kind of a dud, but from my unwanted guest.
Vamps from the east are in town, and they have strange peccadilloes. They aren’t here to sample the local delicacies though, they have an altogether more sinister purpose.
Before my visitor had chance to get nasty, we were kidnapped, and torture of the very painful kind was on the menu. Served him right, me not so much.
But us magical misfits stick together, and soon there’s a war raging that will tear our world apart. Vampires are pitted against vampires, wizards and witches unite against a common enemy – mainly because there are goodies in it for them – and I try to stop getting all my important bits chopped off in nasty ways.
Just another day in the life of a poor wizard.
**Hi, I’m Arthur “The Hat” Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. A bit hurty.**

Ascendant Sun

“O lucky, lucky readers. Catherine Asaro adds another glittering gem to her Skolian collection with Ascendant Sun, the continuing adventures of Kelric, the Last Hawk, after his return from the isolated planet of Coba. Skolia, however, is very different after the Radiance conflict, and the rest of his family is either dead or imprisoned. In fact, it really isn’t safe to admit his true identity, so to earn money to repair his medical modifications he takes a job with a space merchant trying to make a deal with the equally disarrayed Trader empire. /> “But when the worst happens, he finds a golden opportunity to change the course of the future–if only he can survive long enough. “Ms. Asaro continues to grow in both depth and complexity, seamlessly integrating characterization, plot, and scientific conjecture into elegantly developed concepts that both challenge the mind and please the heart. Another knockout display of superlative storytelling! “Thank you so much for such a glorious read.”–Romantic Times

Artists in Crime

Artists in Crime (Roderick Alleyn Series #6) by Ngaio Marsh
It was a bizarre pose for beautiful model Sonia Gluck-and her last. For in the draperies of her couch lay a fatal dagger, and behind her murder lies all the intrigue and acid-etched temperament of an artist’s colony. Called in to investigate, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Roderick Alleyn finds his own passions unexpectedly stirred by the feisty painter Agatha Troy-brilliant artist and suspected murderess.

Artificial Intelligence for Humans, Volume 1: Fundamental Algorithms

A great building requires a strong foundation. This book teaches basic Artificial Intelligence algorithms such as dimensionality, distance metrics, clustering, error calculation, hill climbing, Nelder Mead, and linear regression. These are not just foundational algorithms for the rest of the series, but are very useful in their own right. The book explains all algorithms using actual numeric calculations that you can perform yourself. Artificial Intelligence for Humans is a book series meant to teach AI to those without an extensive mathematical background. The reader needs only a knowledge of basic college algebra or computer programming—anything more complicated than that is thoroughly explained. Every chapter also includes a programming example. Examples are currently provided in Java, C#, R, Python and C. Other languages planned.

Artificial Intelligence for Humans Volume 2

Artificial Intelligence for Humans, Volume 2: Nature-Inspired Algorithms by Jeff Heaton
Nature can be a great source of inspiration for artificial intelligence algorithms because its technology is considerably more advanced than our own. Among its wonders are strong AI, nanotechnology, and advanced robotics. Nature can therefore serve as a guide for real-life problem solving. In this book, you will encounter algorithms influenced by ants, bees, genomes, birds, and cells that provide practical methods for many types of AI situations. Although nature is the muse behind the methods, we are not duplicating its exact processes. The complex behaviors in nature merely provide inspiration in our quest to gain new insights about data.
Artificial Intelligence for Humans is a book series meant to teach AI to those readers who lack an extensive mathematical background. The reader only needs knowledge of basic college algebra and computer programming. Additional topics are thoroughly explained. Every chapter also includes a programming example. Examples are currently provided in Java, C#, and Python. Other languages are planned. No knowledge of biology is needed to read this book.
