Smoke and Mirrors

SMOKE AND MIRRORS is the second in Tanya Huff’s new series about Tony, a former street-kid, rescued by vampire Henry Fitzroy. Tony has moved out of Fitzroy’s home and is now working as a production assistant on TV show ‘Darkest Night’ – ironically, a fictional show about a vampire detective.
The action centres around the filming of a haunted house story … unfortunately in an actual haunted house. When one of the crew is injured, the malevolent spirits in the house come to life. All doors shut at dusk and the deaths of the spirits’ victims are replayed again and again … The pattern follows a grisly theme of murder, then suicide, and each one of the multiple deaths is a story in itself.
The cast will be set free – if they can survive the night. Tony becomes the focus of suspicion as he is the only one who can both see and communicate with the ghosts, as he tries to manage his burgeoning wizardly powers.

Small Great Things

**#1 *NEW YORK TIMES* BESTSELLER • With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, *Small Great Things *is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult.**
**SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE**
**“[Picoult] offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today, both overt and subtle. Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book.”—*Booklist* (starred review)**
Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?
Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family—especially her teenage son—as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others—and themselves—might be wrong.
With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. *Small Great Things* is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.
**Praise for *Small Great Things***
“*Small Great Things* is the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written. . . . It will challenge her readers . . . [and] expand our cultural conversation about race and prejudice.”**—*The Washington Post***
“A novel that puts its finger on the very pulse of the nation that we live in today . . . a fantastic read from beginning to end, as can always be expected from Picoult, this novel maintains a steady, page-turning pace that makes it hard for readers to put down.”**—*San Francisco Book Review***
“A gripping courtroom drama . . . Given the current political climate it is quite prescient and worthwhile. . . . This is a writer who understands her characters inside and out.”**—Roxane Gay, *The New York Times Book Review***
“I couldn’t put it down. Her best yet!”**—*New York Times* bestselling author Alice Hoffman**
“A compelling, can’t-put-it-down drama with a trademark [Jodi] Picoult twist.”**—*Good Housekeeping***
“It’s Jodi Picoult, the prime provider of literary soul food. This riveting drama is sure to be supremely satisfying and a bravely thought-provoking tale on the dangers of prejudice.”**—*Redbook***
“Jodi Picoult is never afraid to take on hot topics, and in *Small Great Things*, she tackles race and discrimination in a way that will grab hold of you and refuse to let you go. . . . This page-turner is perfect for book clubs.”**—*Popsugar***

Small Favor

Small Favor (Dresden Files Series #10) by Jim Butcher
**In this novel in Jim Butcher’s #1 *New York Times* bestselling series, an old debt puts Chicago wizard Harry Dresden in harms way…**
Harry’s life finally seems to be calming down. The White Council’s war with the vampiric Red Court is easing up, no one’s tried to kill him lately, and his eager apprentice is starting to learn real magic. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

Mab, monarch of the Sidhe Winter Court, calls in an old favor from Harry. Just one small favor he can’t refuse…one that will trap Harry Dresden between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and one that will strain his skills—and loyalties—to their very limits.

And everything was going *so* well for once…

Slow River

The Nebula Award Winner–1996
She awoke in an alley to the splash of rain. She was naked, a foot-long gash in her back was still bleeding, and her identity implant was gone. Lore Van Oesterling had been the daughter of one of the world’s most powerful families… and now she was nobody, and she had to hide.
Then out of the rain walked Spanner, predator and thief, who took her in, cared for her wound, and taught her how to reinvent herself again and again. No one could find Lore now: not the police, not her family, and not the kidnappers who had left her in that alley to die. She had escaped… but the cost of her newfound freedom was crime and deception, and she paid it over and over again, until she had become someone she loathed.
Lore had a choice: She could stay in the shadows, stay with Spanner… and risk losing herself forever. Or she could leave Spanner and find herself again by becoming someone else: stealing the identity implant of a dead woman, taking over her life, and creating a new future.
But to start again, Lore required Spanner’s talents—Spanner, who needed her and hated her, and who always had a price. And even as Lore agreed to play Spanner’s game one final time, she found that there was still the price of being a Van Oesterling to be paid. Only by confronting her family, her past, and her own demons could Lore meld together who she had once been, who she had become, and the person she intended to be…
