Gabe and Vinnie connect almost immediately, and it doesn’t take long before they give in to the attraction that they’ve struggled to ignore.

Absolute Zero and the Conquest of Cold

**“A lovely, fascinating book, which brings science to life.” —Alan Lightman**
Combining science, history, and adventure, Tom Shachtman “holds the reader’s attention with the skill of a novelist” as he chronicles the story of humans’ four-centuries-long quest to master the secrets of cold ( *Scientific American* ).
“A disarming portrait of an exquisite, ferocious, world-ending extreme,” *Absolute Zero and the Conquest of Cold* demonstrates how temperature science produced astonishing scientific insights and applications that have revolutionized civilization ( *Kirkus Reviews* ). It also illustrates how scientific advancement, fueled by fortuitous discoveries and the efforts of determined individuals, has allowed people to adapt to—and change—the environments in which they live and work, shaping man’s very understanding of, and relationship, with the world.
This “truly wonderful book” was adapted into an acclaimed documentary underwritten by the National Science Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, directed by British Emmy Award winner David Dugan, and aired on the BBC and PBS’s *Nova* in 2008 ( *Library Journal* ).
“An absorbing account to chill out with.” — *Booklist*

A Year of Stone Painting

You can craft a new mandala every week for one year with this full-color guide by the author of the bestselling *The Art of Stone Painting*. F. Sehnaz Bac, an artist and seasoned archaeologist, presents step-by-step instructions for fifty-two projects. Her easy-to-follow guide will show you how to transform ordinary stones into inspirational works of art.
The mandala — derived from the Sanskrit word for “circle” — represents the universe, and the symbol has long been instrumental to sacred rituals and meditative practices. This treasury of radiant designs presents patterns for stone paintings, each of which is accompanied by a one-word mantra — relax, tranquil, spirit, dream, believe, and other uplifting terms. A few projects are meant to be painted on sea glass, leaves, or shells, but most are based on Bac’s popular interpretations of classic stone-based styles. Colorful photographs accompany simple instructions for a year of crafting inspiration.

A Woman With a Mystery

SHE HAD NO MEMORY AND NO PAST A year ago Holly Barrows had raced through a raging snowstorm — convinced someone was trying to kill her — into the arms of Slade Rawlins. She’d appeared before him like a beautiful apparition in the dark of night. But she was real, flesh and blood, and his fingers had memorized every curve of her body. Then she’d mysteriously vanished, only to return the following Christmas with an outrageous claim of kidnapping. COULD THEY HAVE A FUTURE? Monsters, she’d said, had taken her baby. But any baby she’d had would also have been Slade’s. And he was consumed by his need to protect Holly and locate their child before the family he desperately wanted was lost…forever.

A Wizard of Earthsea

Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin’s *A Wizard of Earthsea* marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death’s threshold to restore the balance.
This ebook includes a sample chapter of THE TOMBS OF ATUAN.

A Wanted Man

**’There’s only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes’** Mick Herron
**’A fascinating, swaggeringly confident performance’** *Sunday Times*
**’Smart, breathless’** *New York Times*
**When you’re as big and rough as Jack Reacher** \- and you have a badly set, freshly busted nose – it isn’t easy to hitch a ride in Nebraska. At last, he’s picked up by three strangers – two men and a woman.
Within minutes it becomes clear they’re all lying about everything – and there’s a police roadblock ahead. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys . . .
Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?
**Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, *A Wanted Man* follows on directly from the end of *Worth Dying For*.**

A Demon’s Work Is Never Done

Tears of flame dripped down my cheeks–tears for Kory and me. The fire net burned my hands whenever I touched it, but I couldn’t let it harm him any more than it already had. Kory’s wings, with burn-holes between ribs, beat to help me get the net off him.
Kory screamed as the net sunk farther into sections of his back–it was designed to burn flesh until it had completely passed through its victim. I shook my hands to rid myself of the wad of net I held and reached for the part that was burning Kory so badly.”

A Brief History of the Vikings

**’From the Fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord.’**
Between the eighth and eleventh centuries, the Vikings surged from their Scandinavian homeland to trade, raid and invade along the coasts of Europe. Their influence and expeditions extended from Newfoundland to Baghdad, their battles were as far-flung as Africa and the Arctic. But were they great seafarers or desperate outcasts, noble heathens or oafish pirates, the last pagans or the first of the modern Europeans?
This concise study puts medieval chronicles, Norse sagas and Muslim accounts alongside more recent research into ritual magic, genetic profiling and climatology. It includes biographical sketches of some of the most famous Vikings, from Erik Bloodaxe to Saint Olaf, and King Canute to Leif the Lucky. It explains why the Danish king Harald Bluetooth lent his name to a twenty-first century wireless technology; which future saint laughed as she buried foreign ambassadors alive; why so many Icelandic settlers had Irish names; and how the last Viking colony was destroyed by English raiders.
Extending beyond the traditional ‘Viking age’ of most books, A Brief History of the Vikings places sudden Scandinavian population movement in a wider historical context. It presents a balanced appraisal of these infamous sea kings, explaining both their swift expansion and its supposed halt. Supposed because, ultimately, the Vikings didn’t disappear: they turned into us.
