Dark World

Two expanding interstellar powers are about to meet in battle.
After the collapse of the Cephalopod Kingdom, Humanity claimed the three hundred rebellious worlds they left behind. But many light years away on the far side of the disputed region, a rival power has begun to move. They’re stealing our planets, one at a time.
Earth Command decides to invade the center of the frontier to set up an advanced base. The mission to DARK WORLD is highly classified and deadly. Legion Varus spearhead’s the effort, and James McGill journeys to the stars again.
How many ships do they have? How advanced is their tech? No one knows, but the campaign takes an unexpected turn immediately. What was supposed to be a snatch-and-grab turns into a bloodbath. McGill dies over and over again, but some battles must be won, even if it means perma-death.
DARK WORLD is the ninth book in the Undying Mercenaries Series.

Dark Star

Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she’s lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human — something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile. Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn’t fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers — livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin. To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person’s memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers’ next move. But Leon, her mother’s bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won’t let Audrey out of his sight. When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything — and everyone — she loves.

The Dark Side of Google

In The Dark Side of Google Italian writers’ collective Ippolita provides a thorough, fresh analysis of what is behind the universe of Google and the metadata industry. In recent years Google has established itself as a major point of Internet access. We have progressively adapted to its sober, reassuring interface and its advertisements (discretely off to the side, yet always present). We have adopted its services and the habit of using it to the degree that ‘googling’ has become a form of behavior: ‘If you don’t know what it is, Google it!’
Google shows mastery in taking advantage of our need for simplicity. We sit in front of a colossus, an incredibly pervasive system of managing knowledge, comprising aggressive marketing and shrewd management of its own image, and the propagation of highly configurable interfaces that are still implacably recognizable. What is more, Google co-opts methods for developing Free Software, the use of futuristic systems for gathering and storing data. What lies behind the most consulted search engine in the world?

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.
