Dark Moon

The peaceful Eldarin were the last of three ancient races.  The mystical Oltor, healers and poets, had fallen before the dread power of the cruel and sadistic Daroth.  Yet in one awesome night the invincible Daroth had vanished from the face of the earth.  Gone were their cities, their armies, their terror.  The Great Northern Desert was their only legacy.  Not a trace remained for a thousand years…
The War of the Pearl had raged for seven years and the armies of the four Duchies were exhausted and weary of bloodshed.  But the foremost of the Dukes, Sirano of Romark, possessed the Eldarin Pearl and was determined to unravel its secrets.
Then, on one unforgetable day, a dark moon rose above the Great Northern Desert, and a black tidal wave swept across the land.  In moments the desert had vanished beneath lush fields and forests and a great city could be seen glittering in the morning sunlight.
From this city re-emerged the blood-hungry Daroth, powerful and immortal, immune to spear and sword.  They had only one desire:  to rid the world of humankind for ever.
Now the fate of the human race rests on the talents of three heroes:  Karis, warrior-woman and strategist; Tarantio, the deadliest swordsman of the age; and Duvodas the Healer, who will learn a terrible truth.
A new world of myth and magic, love and heroism, from the bestselling author of *The Legend of Deathwalker.*

The Dark Half

The Dark Half by Stephen King
**Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine**
A “wondrously frightening” (*Publishers Weekly*) tale of terror and #1 national bestseller about a writer’s pseudonym that comes alive and destroys everyone on the path that leads to the man who created him.
Thad Beaumont is a writer, and for a dozen years he has secretly published violent bestsellers under the name of George Stark. But Thad is a healthier and happier man now, the father of infant twins, and starting to write as himself again. He no longer needs George Stark and so, with nationwide publicity, the pseudonym is retired. But George Stark won’t go willingly.
And now Thad would like to say he is innocent. He’d like to say he has nothing to do with the twisted imagination that produced his bestselling novels. He’d like to say he has nothing to do with the series of monstrous murders that keep coming closer to his home. But how can Thad deny the ultimate embodiment of evil that goes by the name he gave it—and signs its crimes with Thad’s bloody fingerprints?
*The Dark Half* is “a chiller” (*The New York Times Book Review*), so real and fascinating that you’ll find yourself squirming in Stephen King’s heart-stopping, blood-curdling grip—and loving every minute of it.

Dark Fires

”He murdered his wife,” they whispered. Nicholas Bragg, Earl of Dragmore, was notorious–even after a British court found him innocent. Now they called him Lord of Darkness, as much for his rakish good looks as for his black reputation.

She was an innocent at passion’s gate. Arriving uninvited at the massive stone manor, she shivered with terror–and excitement. Jane Barclay was his ward. Her sunny, innocent nature was in violent contrast to his hot temper. He was wild, explosive, an uncouth Texas rakehell–exactly the wrong kind of man for an English beauty to tame.

Together they would be swept into the dark storm of their passionate destiny…and wild, all-consuming love.

Dark Divine

La prima volta che Grace Divine ha incontrato Daniel, con quegli occhi neri così profondi e misteriosi, non immaginava certo che tra loro sarebbe nata subito un’amicizia tenerissima, destinata a diventare qualcosa di più. Una notte, però, Daniel scompare. Quella stessa notte, Jude, il fratello di Grace, viene ritrovato sulla veranda di casa, ricoperto di sangue. Nessuno sa cosa gli sia successo, e lui si rifiuta di parlarne. Da quel momento, la vita non sarà più la stessa per Grace: Daniel, il suo Daniel, l’ha abbandonata, senza nemmeno una spiegazione, e lei non riesce a perdonarlo. O a dimenticarsi di lui. Finché un giorno, improvvisamente, lui ricompare: sono passati tre anni, e ha qualcosa di diverso. Forse gli occhi, ancora più scuri, ancora più magnetici. Questa volta, tra lui e Grace è subito amore, un sentimento irresistibile e travolgente. Grace non è mai stata così felice in vita sua. Non sa ancora che qualcosa di molto pericoloso minaccia il loro amore: Daniel ha un segreto, lo stesso che si cela nel buio della notte in cui Jude è stato assalito. Un segreto terribile che lei non può ignorare. Ma Grace ha già perso Daniel una volta, e ora è disposta a rinunciare a qualunque cosa, anche la più importante, per non perderlo di nuovo. Perché l’amore è sempre una scelta. A volte, quella più difficile di tutte.

Danse Macabre

From the author of dozens of #1 New York Times bestsellers and the creator of many unforgettable movies comes a vivid, intelligent, and nostalgic journey through three decades of horror as experienced through the eyes of the most popular writer in the genre. 
In 1981, years before he sat down to tackle On Writing, Stephen King decided to address the topic of what makes horror horrifying and what makes terror terrifying. 
Here, in ten brilliantly written chapters, King delivers one colorful observation after another about the great stories, books, and films that comprise the horror genre—from Frankenstein and Dracula to The Exorcist, The Twilight Zone, and Earth vs. The Flying Saucers.With the insight and good humor his fans appreciated in On Writing , Danse Macabre is an enjoyably entertaining tour through Stephen King’s beloved world of horror.

Danse Macabre

Anita Blake should be concentrating on a dangerous situation: the ardeur, the sexual power that flows between Anita and Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City – and Richard, the volatile werewolf who loves her passionately – is reaching new levels, perhaps evolving into something entirely new. It seems to be choosing new lovers for Anita, acting with a will of its own. The unexpected effect of this is that Jean-Claude’s own powers as a Master Vampire have grown to new levels – and Richard, always unpredictable, is changing too. However, as the days pass Anita finds herself less interested in vampire politics than in an altogether more personal concern. She may be pregnant. And if she is, whether the father is a vampire, a werewolf or something else entirely, she knows full well that being a Federal Marshall, known for raising the dead and executing vampires, is no way to bring up a baby.

But Monk, brilliant and ambitious, is handicapped by lingering traces of amnesia and by the craven ineptitude of his supervisor, who would like nothing better than to see Monk fail.
