Those too ruthless or stubborn to die have crafted steam-powered mechanical wonders and taken to the sky. Yet somewhere in that wretched land there is a cure for a dire disease. With the eccentric crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker, Nita Graus means to find that cure, whatever the price. Skykeep - Several months have passed since Nita Graus left her home in Caldera to soar with the crew of the Wind Breaker, and life is anything but easy. Their prior exploits have earned them quite a reputation among surface-dwellers and made them a perpetual target of the manipulative residents of the fug. Now a new plot could split the crew and ground the Wind Breaker once and for all. Ichor Well - Ever since Nita joined the Wind Breaker crew, the airship's reputation has been growing. The destruction of the mighty dreadnought and the escape from the legendary Skykeep have made the crew the stuff of legend. Alas, legendary heroes always attract worthy villains. Luscious P.

Book Summary:

Structophis is a heartwarming YA adventure from the author of The Book of Deacon, Bypass Gemini, and Free-Wrench. It is based upon a concept and artwork by ProjectENDO. In a small town in Colorado, Markus Spiros was just getting his life on track. By day he worked as a veterinary tech, by night he took classes. His steady little routine was rolling along nicely when his impulsive Uncle Dimitrios threw a wrench in the works. Thanks to an unannounced trip, Markus had to swing by his uncle’s bistro to tend to the ‘special oven.’ When he arrived, he discovered it wasn’t the oven that was special, it was the rare and exotic egg that had been incubating inside it. And now it had hatched. Suddenly, Markus found his life had become a good deal more complicated. The creature was a Structophis Gastrignae—a strange creature that was equal parts dragon and oven—and she’d become quite a big girl. Large as a refrigerator and curious as a toddler, the creature he’d dubbed Blodgette would have been a handful in any situation. Markus had bigger problems than figuring out how to take care of her, though. Owning such a rare and special beast was illegal, so should the cops learn of it, Markus would be destined for jail. Worse, there were certain unscrupulous people who would do anything to acquire Blodgette. Now, with the help of his old classmate Gale, Markus must scramble to stay two steps ahead of the authorities and a corrupt CEO, all while being the best ‘mommy’ he can be to his brand-new pizza dragon.

Book Summary:

Every story must begin somewhere. For the warrior who would come to be known as the fearsome Red Shadow, the story began in a forgotten glade deep in the land of Tressor. It was there that a pair of trackers, eager to retrieve a lost slave, instead found an orphaned malthrope. Had it been a human, it might have been treated with compassion, but in the eyes of human society a malthrope was a monster, a mix of fox and man believed to be a murderer and thief by its very nature. The beast was to be sold for a handful of silver, but fate intervened in the form of an old blind slave named Ben. Under the learned hand of the one human who believed in his potential, the young malthrope would instead be given the wisdom to take his first steps on the long journey to his destiny. The Rise of the Red Shadow chronicles the early life of one of the most mysterious figures of the The Book of Deacon trilogy, the creature called Lain. It tells of his years working and learning on a Tresson plantation until a dark day of vengeance and bloodshed finally set him free. From there you will follow as he finds his place in the world, learning what it is to be a malthrope, and turning to the purpose that will guide him for the rest of his days. It is a story of love, hate, and lessons hard-learned, revealing the painful choices one must make to become the hero the world needs.

Book Summary:

In this four-book ebook bind-up of romantic, fairy-tale-like YA novels from bestselling author Jody Hedlund, three separate noblewomen—Rosemarie, Juliana, and Sabine—face difficult choices, dangers, and painful truths as they work to find a way to protect their futures. And as each meets one of the noblest knights in the land, they must also protect their hearts. This bind-up contains: The Vow: In this novella prequel to An Uncertain Choice, a young Lady Rosemarie finds herself developing her first romantic feelings, directed toward the son of a visiting noble couple. But just as the two begin to explore what their feelings toward each other may be, a terrible illness sweeps through the estate and leaves both of Rosemarie’s parents gravely ill. As Rosemarie begins taking over duties in the castle, she uncovers a vow her parents have kept secret … one that could change her life, and her romantic future, forever. An Uncertain Choice: On the cusp of her eighteenth birthday, the beautiful and wealthy Lady Rosemarie knows it is her destiny is to fulfill a vow made by her parents, one that dictates she enter a convent on her eighteenth birthday. But as she prepares to enter the religious life in one month, Lady Rosemarie receives the news that there is an exception to the Ancient Vow: if she finds true love and is married by her birthday, she is freed from the obligation to become a nun. At the urging of her godfather, she agrees to allow the three handsomest and noblest knights in the land the chance to win her heart in thirty days. But when the knights’ arrival results in a series of attacks within her land, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights—the one who appears the most guilty—had not already captured her heart. A Daring Sacrifice: Juliana is the daughter of a lord, but the circumstances of her father’s death have forced her to live in the woods of Wessex disguised as a young man. There, she helps the poor, starving peasants around her survive while her cruel uncle rules the lands that are rightfully hers. When she is captured during one of her raids by a neighboring lord, her life complicates more: her captor is Collin, a boy she knew in her past life, and he immediately recognizes her as both a notorious bandit and his redheaded former friend. As her uncle closes in on her location, and the bounty on her head increases, Juliana takes refuge in Collin’s castle. But the longer she spends with Collin, the more she questions her past decisions—and the more her heart bends toward Collin’s charms. For Love & Honor: Long ago, Lady Sabine gave up the hope of marriage due to a skin blemish on her hands and arms that, if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch and place her in tremendous danger. And who would want to love a woman so flawed? Instead, she tells no one of her curse and devotes her life to finding beautiful art and relics, purchasing them with her inherited wealth. Unbeknownst to her, however, her current journey to Sir Bennet’s estate is not to purchase a new piece, but her grandmother’s attempt to marry her off. At the same time, Sir Bennet’s mother has asked him to wed Sabine in order to secure the monies needed to repay the family’s debts. As Sabine and Bennet get to know each other, they find they are more matched than either could have expected, but their dual secrets linger in the background—and both, if not revealed in time, could lead to not only heartbreak, but their demise. Discussion questions for An Uncertain Choice, A Daring Sacrifice, and For Love & Honor are also included.

Now a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.

Book Summary:

Intentioning by best-selling author Gloria Feldt will help you envision the life and career you might have thought were impossible dreams, then give you the courage and actionable tools to achieve them. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and a pandemic of racial injustice that together shook our world to its core and revealed deep fault lines in our culture, Gloria Feldt, New York Times best-selling author, speaker, commentator, international leadership expert, successful CEO, and feminist icon, shows how we can seize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity created by massive disruption to build back stronger with diverse women at the center of the recovery. In Intentioning: Sex, Power, Pandemics, and How Women Will Take The Lead for (Everyone’s) Good, Feldt inspires diverse women to embrace their personal power to lead with intention, confidence, and joy. It comes as no surprise to her that women flexed their formidable muscles when needed most, representing a disproportionate number of essential workers during the darkest days of the coronavirus global outbreak and leading the charge against racism in the United States. But this book is decidedly about the future, taking the leadership lessons learned from this disruption and creating a better world for all. Feldt not only unveils the next step in advancing gender parity in all spheres of business and life, but she also lays out the vital next steps in the overall advancement of our economy and our civilization. The “Lead Like a Woman” framework and the “9 Leadership Intentioning Tools” she presents in this book will prepare, motivate, and propel women of all diversities and intersectionalities now so that by 2025, women will have attained their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors of industry and society. We simply cannot squander women’s talents when so much hangs in the balance. Women must be at the vanguard of reimagining and reconstructing a vibrant and sustainable future for us all.
