In the small community of Village-Upon-Stone, a storm settles solely over the house of a beloved family. Instead of leading their normal, happy life, the family-a father, a mother, and three young daughters-must battle fierce winds and torrential rain. The other villagers come to the family's aid, but it's no use against the rapidly rising waters. The family and their neighbors pray to the Star King for relief. They know he is good, but they have never endured such a storm; what if he does not send help? But he does, and after the family receives the Star King's gifts, he sends an Angelfish to invite them to a grand banquet at the Radiant Palace. The family is thrilled, but the Star King has asked that the two youngest daughters travel to his kingdom first, with the rest of the family to follow afterwards. The family is alarmed by this request, but the Angelfish reminds them that the Star King does not always do things in the usual way, and they will be with their daughters again sooner than they think. They trust the Star King, so they send the daughters to his kingdom in a makeshift boat led by the Angelfish. On their voyage, the girls experience beauty, darkness, and fear, but eventually reach the Star Kingdom, which immediately feels like home-and the people who greet them there are the greatest surprises of all. Inspired by a real-life family, Voyage to the Star Kingdom is a vivid reminder that our stories don't end with death, and that the King is indeed making all things new. (Storyline collaboration by Amy Grimes and Anne Riley)

Falling in love with a woman you've never seen before isn't normal. However, for a man like Sky Pheris, this is only the tip of the iceberg. For one, he was born with the ability to see into the souls of others, with all of the often gruesome details. Adapting to these powers has led to him becoming quite the lonesome outcast. Even a loner must talk to someone, though, even if it's only over letters. Hence, via a winged mail service, Sky had been keeping contact with a princess named Solveig, from the Star Kingdom. And what man in his right mind wouldn't fall in love with a princess? Sky, having made up his mind to go and see Solveig in person, began what should've been a simple journey. It should've been just a normal trek across the three nearly-connected continents of Peleg, home of many forms of peoples and creatures. Indeed, it should've been. Meeting up with a pathetic priest, a gorgeous tavern-owner, and an overly curious scientist along the way have made life much more complicated for Sky. Together, they challenge his beliefs, reveal more about his unique powers, and make a romance that seems to be much more real than his written dream. Last but certainly not least, the people of Peleg are having to defend against mysterious, magical invaders. One of those invaders happens to have a focus on the Star Kingdom, the very same place where Sky wants to end his journey... THE SKY OF PELEG is the first book of a series that promises to intrigue and entertain any reader of fantasy.

In 1879 the USS Jeanette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds and a frenzy of publicity. The ship and its crew, captained by the heroic George De Long, were heading for glory and the last unmapped area of the globe: the North Pole. But it was not long before the Jeanette was trapped in crushing pack ice. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew found themselves marooned a thousand miles north of Siberia with only the barest supplies, facing a seemingly impossible trek across the endless ice. Battling everything from snow blindness and polar bears to ferocious storms and frosty labyrinths, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for survival. With twists and turns worthy of a thriller, In the Kingdom of Ice is a spellbinding tale of heroism and determination in the most unforgiving territory on Earth.

They have a plan ... and for it to succeed Honor Harrington must die. Two irresistible forces are rushing together to crush Grayson between them, and only one woman uncertain of her capabilities, weary unto death, and marked for murder-stands between her adopted planet and its devastation.

Growing up, Travis Uriah Long yearned for order and discipline in his life . . . the two things his neglectful mother couldnt or wouldnt provide. So when Travis enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Navy, he thought hed finally found the structure hed always wanted so desperately. But life in the RMN isnt exactly what he expected. Boot camp is rough and frustrating; his first ship assignment lax and disorderly; and with the Star Kingdom of Manticore still recovering from a devastating plague, the Navy is possibly on the edge of budgetary extinction. The Star Kingdom is a minor nation among the worlds of the Diaspora, its closest neighbors weeks or months away, with little in the way of resources. With only modest interstellar trade, no foreign contacts to speak of, a plague-ravaged economy to rebuild, and no enemies looming at the hyper limit, there are factions in Parliament who want nothing more than to scrap the Navy and shift its resources and manpower elsewhere. But those factions are mistaken. The universe is not a safe place. Travis Long is about to find that out. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

From multiple New York Times best selling author David Weber and #1 New York Times best selling author Timothy Zahn. NEW ENTRY IN BEST-SELLING SERIES. Book #2 in the Manticore Ascendant series, set in David Weber's Honorverse. Lieutenant Travis Long of the Royal Manticoran Navy is the sort of person who likes an orderly universe. One where people follow the rules. Unfortunately, he lives in the real universe. The good news is that Travis is one of those rare people who may like rules but has a talent for thinking outside them when everything starts coming apart. That talent has stood him¾and the Star Kingdom¾in good stead in the past, and its one reason hes now a _mustang,Ó an ex-enlisted man whos been given a commission as a Kings officer. The bad news is that two of the best ways of making enemies ever invented are insisting on enforcing the rules . . . and thinking outside them when other people dont. Travis learned that lesson the hard way as a young volunteer in basic training, and he knows that if he could just keep his head down, turn a blind eye to violations of the rules, and avoid stepping on senior officers toes, hed do just fine. But the one rule Travis Long absolutely cant break is the one that says an officer in the Royal Navy does his duty, whatever the consequences. At the moment, there are powerful forces in the young Star Kingdom of Manticores Parliament which dont think they need him. For that matter, theyre pretty sure they dont need the Royal Manticoran Navy, either. After all, what does a sleepy little single-system star nation on the outer edge of the explored galaxy need with a navy? Unhappily for them, the edge of the explored galaxy can be a far more dangerous place than they think it is. Theyre about to find out why they need the Navy . . . and how very, very fortunate they are that Travis Long is in it. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Praise for prequel A Call to Duty: "This exciting book marks the first collaboration of two powerhouses . . . fans of both writers should be quite pleased with the result. Like Robert A. Heinlein and Orson Scott Card, Weber and Zahn are telling a story about a teenage character but writing for readers of all ages."_Booklist "A new series set in the universe of Weber's popular heroine Honor Harrington gets off to a solid start. . . .

BACK FROM HELL For eight bloody years, the Star Kingdom of Manticore and its allies have taken the war to the vastly more powerful People's Republic of Haven, and Commodore Honor Harrington has been in the forefront of that war. But now Honor has fallen, captured by the Peep Navy, turned over to the forces of State Security ... and executed on the interstellar network's nightly news. The Manticoran Alliance is stunned and infuriated by Honor's death and grimly resolved to avenge it. Yet their military is over-extended and the People's Republic is poised to take (he offensive once more, this time with a new strategy, new weapons, a new command team, and a whole new determination to win. The war is about to enter a phase of unprecedented ferocity . . . and the Alliance is on the short end of the stick. But even as powerful Peep fleets hurtle towards their objectives, neither they nor the Alliance are aware of events occurring on a distant, isolated, inescapable prison planet called Hell. For what no one knows, not even State Security, is that Honor Harrington is not dead. She and a handful of her people are trapped on Hell, and determined to disprove the Peep boast that no one can ever escape it. Honor Harrington is going home, and taking her people with her... even if she has to conquer Hell to do it. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
