“A rousing tale of courtly intrigues and chivalrous honor” from the author of The Glass Magician (Charles de Lint, award-winning writer). Just as hard-fought peace has come to the land of Staunton, war hero Sir Anthony Folville lies dead—but not due to his battle wounds. He has been poisoned by the medic treating him, a man supposedly paid by Queen Andred’s heir to perform this dastardly act. Now, with the prince imprisoned and accused of murder, his allies join forces to prove his innocence, including the fiancée of Sir Anthony and the royal scholar Chrysafer. They have reason to suspect the Duke of Tilbury is behind the plot—and that the queen is his next target. As spies listen in the shadows and swords clash, there is one weapon that will sway events in the traitorous duke’s favor: a legendary serpent’s egg with clairvoyant powers. And only Chrysafer is able to sense its magic—and stop the carnage to come . . . “To know this book is to love it passionately. I want to live in it. I want to exchange banter with witty ne’er do wells, be boon companion to noble-hearted yet practical ladies, aid a nerdy librarian with her magic, and incidentally save the kingdom. Here is true magic.” —Ellen Kushner, World Fantasy Award–winning author “I really enjoyed reading The Serpent’s Egg, and delighted in the unusual characterizations and plot.” —Anne McCaffrey, New York Times–bestselling author of the Dragonriders of Pern series “Sparkling characters, humor, and lots of action . . . A very talented writer!” —R.A. MacAvoy, John W. Campbell Award–winning author of Lens of the World

What better setting is there for a tale of revenge than the Spanish Inquisition? Set in the seventeenth century, Serpent's Teeth tells the story of a young woman pursued by the Inquisition. With her family murdered, her mind broken by torture and grief, she must run for her life - until running is no longer an option. Atlantis is real—or rather, it was real before it sank into the ocean. Centuries ago, the survivors of Atlantis were scattered throughout the Mediterranean, but they are still secretly ruled by the Atlantean royal family. Tanis, the eighteen-year-old heiress to the throne, is poised to take over as queen—but not anytime soon, she hopes. But Europe is an extraordinarily dangerous place during the Spanish Inquisition—even for the wealthy heiress of a lost kingdom. Queen Isabel of Spain and Bishop Torquemada conspire to steal the royal family’s wealth under the auspices of the Spanish Inquisition. Both Tanis and her mother are imprisoned and tortured in an attempt to get them to divulge the location of their legendary treasure. When tragedy strikes, Tanis resolves to exact vengeance on Torquemada and Isabel, but she must also remember her obligation to the lost children of Atlantis. Filled with heartbreak and conflict, Serpent’s Teeth is a thrilling adventure set in a very different Spain from the one described in history books. Seething from the injustice inflicted on her family, Tanis must keep herself from becoming the danger she seeks to escape. Can she put aside her drive for vengeance long enough to lead her people to safety, or is the legacy of Atlantis truly doomed?

“We travel the world,” writes Gregory McNamee, “and wherever we go there are snake stories to entertain us.” Here are some fifty diverse and unusual accounts of serpents from cultures across time and around the globe: snakes that talk, jump, and dance; snakes that transform into other creatures; snakes that just . . . watch. Many selections are drawn from the rich oral traditions of peoples in every clime that supports reptiles, from the Akimel O’odham of North America to the Mensa Bet-Abrahe of Africa to the Mungkjan of Australia. Included as well are such writings as prayers from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm, a poem by Emily Dickinson, and a journal entry by Charles Darwin. What we read about snakes in The Serpent’s Tale is just as fascinating for what it says about us, for there always will be something primordial about our connection to them. That bond is evident in these stories: in how we associate snakes with nature’s elemental forces, how we attribute special qualities to their eyes and skin, and how they preside over all phases of our existence, from creation to death to resurrection.

A cryptozoological classic from Ulwencreutz Media. This book was originally privately published in 1886 in Edinburgh. In this publication, Goldsmid brought together rare treatises written in the 1600's which discussed strange and mythical creatures. These fascinating works attempted to separate fact from fiction. While we may not today reach the same conclusions, they provide us with a rare glimpse into the minds of those early scholars who were struggling to understand the world around them. The treatises were written by George Caspard Kirchmayer (On the Basilisk; On the Unicorn; On the Phoenix; On the Behemoth; the Leviathan; On the Dragon; On the Spider), Hermann Grübe (On the Sting of the Tarantula), and Isaac Schoockius (On Chameleons; On Bears licking their Offspring into perfect Shape; On Satyrs, Mermaids, Men with Tails, etc.).

“No matter how small you think you are, you can all change the world with one single thought or action. All you have to do is believe that you can. Therein lies the magic .”Dylan McFinn is an ordinary twelve-year-old. Ordinary, that is, if you ignore the fact that he lives deep under the Pacific Ocean with his sea-captain father Culbert, his annoying little brother Axneus, and his mother Varuna – who is most definitely not a mermaid.Ordinary, too, if you ignore the mysterious power he doesn’t know he possesses. For Dylan’s birthday, Culbert takes the family on a trip to his homeland. He remembers the island of Maloto as a beautiful, tranquil place, but something has changed in the fourteen years since he left. Dark forces are threatening the peace, and his old friend Marvin – an environmental warrior last seen fishing plastic from the ocean – has disappeared.Axneus, though, seems more interested in the shiny black stone he stole from Eric at Neptune’s Tower. What is its secret? And where exactly is Neptune’s Tower, anyway?As he battles monsters and maelstroms on his first day as a teenager, Dylan McFinn discovers that he can be an awful lot more than he imagines and a nostalgic trip to the past was more than just a rite of passage. It was a passage to his destiny.

The first novel in Mercedes Lackey's magical Elemental Masters series reimagines the fairy tale Snow White in a richly-detailed alternate Edwardian England Maya Witherspoon lived most of the first twenty-five years of her life in her native India. As the daughter of a prominent British physician and a Brahmin woman of the highest caste, she graduated from the University of Delhi as a Doctor of Medicine by the age of twenty-two. But the science of medicine was not Maya’s only heritage. For Maya’s aristocratic mother Surya was a sorceress—a former priestess of the mystical magics fueled by the powerful and fearsome pantheon of Indian gods. Though Maya felt the stirring of magic in her blood, her mother had repeatedly refused to train her. “I cannot,” she had said, her eyes dark with distress, whenever Maya asked. “Yours is the magic of your father’s blood, not mine....” Surya never had the chance to explain this enigmatic statement to her daughter before a mysterious illness claimed her life. Yet it was Maya’s father’s death shortly thereafter that confirmed her darkest suspicions. For her father was killed by the bite of a krait, a tiny venomous snake, and in the last hours of her mother’s life, Surya had warned Maya to beware “the serpent’s shadow.” Maya knew she must flee the land of her birth or face the same fate as her parents. In self-imposed exile in Edwardian London, Maya knew that she could not hide forever from the vindictive power that had murdered her parents. She knew in her heart that even a vast ocean couldn’t protect her from “the serpent’s shadow” that had so terrified her mother. Her only hope was to find a way to master her own magic: the magic of her father’s blood. But who would teach her? And could she learn enough to save her life by the time her relentless pursuers caught up with their prey?
