An enchanting take on the legend of King Arthur from Britain’s best-loved children’s author, Michael Morpurgo. ‘There stood before me an ancient man swathed in a dark and tattered fleece, his long hair and beard matted with filth, his face grey with grief and age. Holding the sword out in front of me, I backed away until I felt the sink behind me and I could go no further. His eyes followed me all the way.' When Bun Bendle is struck blind, he feels like he is drowning in blackness. But the discovery of an ancient tomb and a strangely familiar sword changes him forever. The Sleeping Sword weaves a contemporary tale with Arthurian legend in a way that is utterly spellbinding. Once again, former Children’s Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller.

Grace Agbrigg has ambitions beyond merely ornamenting the home of a rich husband. But Victorian England is still almost wholly a man’s world in which women, rich or poor - must do the bidding of the father, husband or employer. Attracted against her will to the ambitious and ruthless Gideon Chard, Grace instead makes the marriage that is expected of her. But eventually she breaks free of a relationship that is a sham to become the only divorcee in Cullingford. Cast out by society, Grace is faced with a future she never expected - one in which she holds the keys to her own happiness. Set against a background of change and unrest, of dazzling wealth cheek by jowl with bitter poverty, this conclusion to the Barforth Trilogy is perfect for fans of Sandy Taylor, Katie Flynn and Josephine Cox.

The savage combatants in Abby Kincaid's computer Game have gained a life of their own and have gone on a killing rampage through the streets of Manhattan, and she is the only one that can cancel out their program. But due to Abby's design, the escaped electromagnetic character now knows as much about computers as she does, eliminating the possibility of simply ending the program. Only the game's hero, Jack McGee, based on an actual ex-SEAL and jungle fighter, can kill Thundercloud, the Quechua savage bent on kidnapping Abby and making her his woman, thinking she is the Game's female antagonist. Knowing only Jack can kill Thundercloud, Abby embarks on a series of Virtual Realities meant to fool Jack into thinking he is helping her find a lost city in the Amazon jungle. But the real Jack refuses to take her into the jungle until she passes some SEAL training exercises, designed with the intent of keeping her from going. However, Abby has more pluck than Jack imagined and finds himself liking her spunk and determination until he finally agrees to take her to that lost city even though he seriously doubt it exists. On the way, Jack finds himself in a reality not his own, fighting a Thundercloud unlike the one he knows, with images appearing and disappearing which effect the outcome in a way Jack could never have imagined. The intrigue creates on-going excitement, with ex-SEALs, stolen Peruvian helicopters, GPS and Landsat imagery, free-fall parachuting, and a very questionable map to a city lost in the overgrowth of the Amazon jungle. All the time neither Jack nor Abby understand which Reality they fight and love in, or the terrible results of extended immersion in these Realities. Based on true events from Percy Fawcett's searches for a lost city of gold in the Amazon jungle, and Hugh McCarthy's recorded travel from which he never returned. This is a sweeping adventure pitting a modern-day warrior against the most unusual weapons he has ever encountered, and a tribe of Peruvian savages that never die, and a love that spans two continents and several unusual realities.

A new mystery series starring a Memphis crime scene photographer with ghostly assistance Jackie Lyons, a former vice detective with the Memphis Police Department, is trying to put her life back together. Her husband has served her with divorce papers, she's broke, and her apartment has just gone up in flmaes. But a failed marriage, unemployment, and an incinerated home aren't her only problems: she also sees ghosts. Since Jackie left her job with the MPD, she's been making ends meet by photographing crime scenes for her old friends on the force, and for the occasional collector. When she's called to the murder scene of the Playhouse Killer's latest victim, she starts seeing crime scenes from a different perspective-- her new camera captures spectral images. As her camera brings her ghostly visitors into sharper relief, it also points her toward clues the ex-detective in her won't let go: Did the man she has just started dating kill his wife? Is the Playhouse Killer someone in her inner circle? As Jackie works to separate natural from supernatural, friend from foe, and light from dark, the spirit world and her own difficult past become the only things she can depend on to solve the case.
