Bone Spell

**What do you do when the villain in your story just *won’t stay dead*? Better yet, what if you’re the only one who can see her for who she truly is?**
I was ready for life to settle down for a while after the end of the war that Galladar-the-fairy brought to Earth. Unfortunately, destiny had other plans in store for me. 
When a ten-year-old boy pops up in the backseat of my car and tells me he *saw* himself coming to me in a vision, things slowly begin to go to hell. Everybody wants him and nobody knows why. As if that wasn’t enough, my sworn enemy, the Hedge witch Jane Dunham, will stop at nothing to get the kid, and she wants to *destroy my entire world from the inside out* while at it–her words, not mine. 
And she’s found the perfect way to do it.
I never knew much about my father, aside from what my mother told me. I never cared to ask, either, until that Hedge witch got the idea into my head. Now, there’s no stopping old secrets from coming out, and when they do, killing Jane Dunham isn’t going to be the hardest thing I’ll have to deal with.
But when everything is said and done, who knows? Maybe I’ll finally get my rooftop date with Julian Walker.

Bone Prison

**I made a deal with the devil. Turns out, my soul wasn’t the only thing she was after. **
Jane Dunham promised me she was going to help me find my father in the magical prison my grandparents put him in. In return, I let her live.
Now, as I chase after her, I have to continue to lie to the people that matter the most to me. When I do find her, I’m not the only one, and the fairy with a voice that makes imaginary spiders crawl up my skin makes me do something even worse than selling my soul.
Stuck with my sworn enemy in one head, finding my father is no longer an issue. What comes after might just make me regret having let Jane live.
But by then, as is the case with most bad decisions, it will be too late…

Bone Magic

**I thought I’d never see Julian Walker again.
*Never* came much sooner than I expected. **
After killing the Hedge witches that wreaked havoc among covens for decades, I thought people were finally going to learn how to see past the physical. I thought they’d begin to trust me. I was wrong.
I didn’t expect things to go from bad to worse so fast, until I found Julian Walker on the floor of my office, barely even breathing.
He tells me he needs me. He tells me that I’m the only one who can stop the fairy who had destroyed the fairy realm and its Courts. Who’d killed thousands of innocent people. Who was going to come to Earth next.
Going back to the fairy realm was not something I ever thought I’d do again, but I’d been wrong about a lot of things before. And as it turns out, I’m willing to put my life on the line easily for the man that owns my heart.
Besides, I always wanted to see what a *real dragon* looks like.

Bone Fairy

**Caught between a death sentence at home, and a threat of war made by my own father in the fairy realm, the future isn’t looking very good for me.**
Being accused of treason against the paranormal community on Earth, and getting dragged out of my apartment by ECU soldiers was nothing short of what I deserved. It’s why I let them have their way with me, until five masked witches manage to kidnapped me right in front of the soldiers.
They claim I stole a dragon weapon from them together with Jane Dunham, and now they want me to find it. In return, they’ll offer me a trial with the ECU, a chance to clear my name and get rid of the death sentence looming over me like an angry cloud. It was all I could have asked for, and I was mere *hours* from getting my freedom back, when the commander of the Unseelie army comes to find me with some very bad news.
Now, I have a choice to make: save myself, or try to stop my father from killing half the Court and ruining the peace treaty with Earth.
There’s a reason why I decided to star working on my own when Finn fired me from his Agency. Somehow, along the way, I forgot all about it, but the time has come to remember who I want to spend the rest of my life fighting for.

Bone Deep

**The stunning new thriller from the *New York Times*bestselling author.**
When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson’s asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag alongbut neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they’ve let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: a ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on.
Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial lossesand in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.

Bone Coven

Accepting my new fate as only half a witch turned out to be much more difficult than I thought it would be, but when a leader of a coven comes to me with a seemingly unsolvable case, everything changes again.
The Green coven is under attack. The children of its leaders are disappearing without a trace, and nobody knows how to find them. Witches are losing it, and the coven is on the brink of self-destruction. The strangest thing is, the exact same things happened a decade ago, right before the Bone coven broke apart, and I’m not one to believe in coincidences.
Solving this case means making my place in the paranormal world once and for all, and I’m going to use everything I have to get to the bottom of it – even if it means exposing my real magic to the world.

The Bone Conjurer

The Bone Conjurer (Rogue Angel Series #24) by Alex Archer
**From the ashes of an ancient holy order comes an unholy relic…**
In the time of the Crusades, the Knights Templars were holy warriors who seemed to be blessed by God himself. But over the years, the order dissolved into mysteries both sacred and profane—creating an object whose power bends to the true nature of its owner….
But until she held it in her hands, archaeologist Annja Creed hadn’t heard of the Skull of Sidon nor the twisted tale of its origins. Even now, she’s still not convinced. Yet someone wants it badly enough to hire a man who wields power beyond her imagining. Power enough to prevent Annja from protecting the mysterious skull. And power enough to kill.

The Bohemian Girl: Denton # 2

It’s the first year of the 20th century, and Denton, the notorious American writer, has returned to London after several months in one of the less-delightful corners of the Continent. He’s greeted by a towering pile of mail –bills, invitations, gushing notes from fans craving more tales of adventuring. It’s the usual mix…with one exception: “I believe that someone threatens to harm me, and I do not know quite what to do.” The note, signed “Mary Thomason” was in fact been sent by someone else. And it is more than two months old. But Denton is a Victorian gentlemen to the marrow, much though he’d like to deny it, and he cannot deny a damsel in distress. His search for the mysterious Miss Thomason will take him deep into London’s “bohemian” quarters — no less alluring, pretentious and sinister than they are today – and also into some of the darker corners of his own soul.

Body Work

Body Work (V. I. Warshawski Series #14) by Sara Paretsky
**“V.I. Warshawski is back—intelligent, tough, sarcastic and trouble-prone as ever….*Body Work* isn’t just a satisfying whodunnit; it’s a rich, well-written why-dunnit, striking some surprising chords that will resonate long after you finish the final page.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch**
Chicago’s Club Gouge attracts an eclectic audience, from bohemian types to Ukranian mobsters to young men just back from the war. And tonight, V.I. Warshawski is in the crowd too. The edgy stage show stars The Body Artist, who invites audience members to draw on her naked flesh. But things get a lot edgier when a woman sketches a picture on the Body Artist—and one of the veterans flies into a drunken rage. Next thing V.I. knows, she’s cradling the woman’s dying body in an alley, and a PTSD-stricken soldier is presumed guilty. But he’s also comatose after a drug overdose, and the mystery of what exactly set him off—and what kinds of shady activities are really happening at Club Gouge—will lead V.I. to a truth as explosive as the IEDs that lurk on the roadsides of Iraq.

The Boat of a Million Years

Others have written SF on the theme of immortality, but in *The Boat of a Million Years*, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on, unaging, undying, through the centuries and millenia. We follow them through over 2000 years, up to our time and beyond-to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.
A milestone in modern science fiction, a *New York Times* Notable Book on its first publication in 1989, this is one of a great writer’s finest works.
