Shortlisted for Waterstones Book of the Year 2017. 'A Skinful of Shadows confirms Hardinge's status as one of our finest storytellers. It's rare to find a book which is every bit as intelligent and stylish as it is riveting - I was enthralled' - Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent. Frances Hardinge weaves a dark, otherworldly tale in A Skinful of Shadows, her first book since the Costa Award-winning The Lie Tree. When a creature dies, its spirit can go looking for somewhere to hide. Some people have space inside them, perfect for hiding. Makepeace, a courageous girl with a mysterious past, defends herself nightly from the ghosts which try to possess her. Then a dreadful event causes her to drop her guard for a moment. And now there's a ghost inside her. The spirit is wild, brutish and strong, but it may be her only defence in a time of dark suspicion and fear. As the English Civil War erupts, Makepeace must decide which is worse: possession – or death.

In The Shadows of Horses, Mike Keenan shares the inside story of what life is like on the land for today's farmers - the isolation, the agony of drought and the uncertainty about the future. Mike's first book, The Horses too are Gone, only told a small part of his personal story. Now, through his memoir of growing up on the family property, Myall Plains, and later running it, he explores many aspects of the Australian bush and its way of life that are so close to his heart, along the way telling some terrific bush yarns as well as hair-raising anecdotes from his years on the bush racing circuit. Ultimately this book is about Mike's own passion for - and despair over - life on the land, but he also speaks for every farmer who is doing it tough.

Although Touchstone can stand alone, it is the first book of a brilliant, utterly engaging new fantasy series, Glass Thorns, from Melanie Rawn, the author of the bestselling Dragon Prince series.

But Cade lives and breathes for the theater, and he's good—very, very good. With his company, he'll enter the highest reaches of society and power as an honored artist—or die trying. Cade combines the talents of Merlin, Shakespeare, and John Lennon: a wholly charming character in a remarkably original fantasy world created by a mistress of the art. The Glass Thorns Series #1 Touchstone #2 Elsewhens #3 Thornlost #4 Window Wall #5 Playing to the Gods (forthcoming) At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Darcy Flynn had spent most of her life at a prestigious girl's school in Philadelphia, first as a student then as a teacher. It is the late 1800s and Darcy's mother has built a life for herself in the rugged West, eventually settling in Denver.

Josiah Jones Was A Bear Of A Man— certainly nothing like the mere boys who'd paid court to Tatiana as Countess Karanova.

Tatiana brought something new to the California wilderness—a cool, aristocratic beauty and courage enough to match any man's. But Josiah was a mountain man with a broken heart.
