    Off Broadway

    With the disappearance of her piano player, Avery’s Broadway cabaret is a breath away from ruined, until her agent finds a last minute replacement. Dan is charming and exudes the exact kind of sexiness that will draw in audiences—as quickly as it drew in Avery. But Avery knows better than to give in to her desires. The show is too important to risk, and messing with her piano player might destroy the career that’s just starting to take off. Too bad every time she’s in the same room with Dan, she keeps thinking about the other things she’d like to take off.
    A month after landing in the city of dreams, Dan finds himself brokenhearted and broke. Avery’s cabaret is his last desperate attempt to stay in New York. But Avery has every one of his nerve endings on edge—from her perfect ass to her mix of innocence and sex, he finds himself insane with need every time she’s close.
    When a bass player joins the act, and makes no secret about what he’d like to do to Avery’s body with his practiced hands, the tension between Dan and Avery grows even more. In an attempt to distract herself from her growing need for Dan, Avery invites the bass player to join her after the show. But when Dan walks into her dressing room, the two men tangle not only for her attention, but for her pleasure. Now Avery’s faced with a choice—her desires, her heart, or her show…

    Of the Mortal Realm

    **The gripping conclusion to Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’s Mancer trilogy, ******Of the Mortal Realm ******finds the city of Kavet cast into the middle of the final showdown between the infernal Abyssi and the divine Numini. It is battle that could reshape the world . . . and a battle not all will survive.**
    Hansa, Umber, and Cadmia have managed to fight their way out of the Abyss and return to Kavet, bringing with them the long-imprisoned Terre Verte.
    Prince Verte is determined to return Kavet to its former magical strength and restore the royal reign of the Terre family. He has the ability; his stay in the Abyss has left him abundantly powerful. But it has also left him dangerously unstable.
    But when Naples, once the strongest Abyssumancer in Kavet – and former ally of Verte – also returns from the Abyss, Hansa and the others realize it is not Verte they need to be concerned with. For the Abyssi and the Numini are engaged in their own grand war, one that is pouring across the veils of the realms. And if the magic-users cannot come together to stop them, the fabric of the mortal world will be destroyed, taking all of them with it.

    Of the Divine

    **The second novel in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’s dazzling Mancer trilogy, *Of the Divine* takes place seventy-one years before the events of *Of the Abyss*, in a world where sorcery is still practiced freely—but at what cost?**
    Henna’s runes tell her that the future of Kavet is balanced on the edge of the knife. One of the most powerful sorcerers in the Order of Napthol, she is well-respected for her second sight. But the fragments she sees this time—blood, darkness, destruction—leave her unsure how to set the country and her lover, Verte, prince of Kavet, on the correct course.
    Meanwhile, the treaties between Kavet and the dragon-like race known as the Osei have become intolerable. The time has come for the royal house to wield their unique magic to challenge Osei dominion, with Prince Verte serving as the nexus for the powerful but dangerous spell, and Naples, an untested young sorcerer from the Order of Napthol, a volatile but critical support to its creation.
    Amid these plans, Dahlia Indathrone’s arrival in the city shouldn’t matter. She has no magic and no royal lineage, and yet, Henna immediately knows the young woman is important. She just can’t see why. And no vision could prepare her for the role Dahlia will come to play.
    In *Of the Divine*, the lives of Henna, Verte, Naples, and Dahlia become irrevocably linked, setting them, and all Kavet, on a perilous path. As they struggle to survive, they learn that they are but pawns in a larger game, one played by the forces of the Abyss and of the Numen—the infernal and the divine. A game no mortal can ever hope to win.

    Of Mice and Men

    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing “Of Mice and Men” (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal; a friendship and a shared dream that makes an individual’s existence meaningful.

    The Ode Less Travelled

    *I have a dark and dreadful secret. I write poetry… I believe poetry is a primal impulse within all of us. I believe we are all capable of it and furthermore that a small, often ignored corner of us positively yearns to try it.*
    —Stephen Fry, *The Ode Less Travelled*
    Stephen Fry believes that if one can speak and read English, one can write poetry. Many of us have never been taught to read or write poetry and think of it as a mysterious and intimidating form. Or, if we have been taught, we remember uncomfortable silence when an English teacher invited the class to “respond” to a poem. In *The Ode Less Travelled*, Fry sets out to correct this problem by giving aspiring poets the tools and confidence they need to write poetry for pleasure.
    Fry is a wonderfully engaging teacher and writer of poetry himself, and he explains the various elements of poetry in simple terms, without condescension. His enjoyable exercises and witty insights introduce the concepts of Metre, Rhyme, Form, Diction, and Poetics. Aspiring poets will learn to write a sonnet, on ode, a villanelle, a ballad, and a haiku, among others. Along the way, he introduces us to poets we’ve heard of, but never read. *The Ode Less Travelled* is a lively celebration of poetry that makes even the most reluctant reader want to pick up a pencil and give it a try. BACKCOVER: **Advanced Praise:**
    “Delightfully erudite, charming and soundly pedagogical guide to poetic form… Fry has created an invaluable and highly enjoyable reference book.”
    —*Publishers Weekly*
    “A smart, sane and entertaining return to the basics… If you like Fry’s comic manner… this book has a lot of charm… People entirely fresh to the subject could do worse than stick with his cheerful leadership.”
    —*The Telegraph* (UK)
    “…intelligent and informative, a worthy enterprise well executed.”
    —*Observer* (UK)
    “If you learn how to write a sonnet, and Fry shows you how, you may or may not make a poem. But you will unlock the stored wisdom of the form itself.”
    —Grey Gowrie, *The Spectator* (UK)
    “…intelligent and informative, a worthy enterprise well executed.”
    —*Observer* (UK)

    Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it’s a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out.

But this time it’s different.A mysterious man comes to town with a voracious appetite, a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world’s worst killers, and a pack of hyena-like shades following him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd’s deceased informants can tell him. His most ominous clue is a page ripped from a day-by-day calendar for August 15. Today is August 14.In less than twenty-four hours, Pico Mundo will awaken to a day of catastrophe. As evil coils under the searing desert sun, Odd travels through the shifting prisms of his world, struggling to avert a looming cataclysm with the aid of his soul mate and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. His account of two shattering days when past and present, fate and destiny converge is the stuff of our worst nightmares—and a testament by which to live: sanely if not safely, with courage, humor, and a full heart that even in the darkness must persevere.From the Hardcover edition.
