“Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.”—The Times (London)
 
An orphan’s life is harsh—and often short—in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game—or die trying.
 
Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora
 
“Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized.”—George R. R. Martin
 
“Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

“A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke’s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.”—The Seattle Times
 
“A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf . . . Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“High-octane fantasy . . . a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.”—Richard Morgan

Drops of crimson and muttered incantations... the stories in this collection are Born of Blood and Spells.

 

Short stories, flash fiction, and poems – thirteen tales of dark fantasy all written by Alexa Grave. Including This Is Where I Stand, Bloodstains, and Hair of the Dog, as well as: 

 

Sunset Street 

 

Be careful what you wish for.

 

Stuck in her dorm room alone on a Friday night, Leah can’t imagine her loneliness getting any deeper until she pops a new game into her computer... and gets sucked into it. Trapped in a world of darkness and rain, she fears she’ll never see another living soul again. Until she meets Zach. He may be the balm for her heart she’s been searching for, but fulfilling her wish comes with a price. Is she willing to pay it? 

 

Cold, Oh So Cold 

 

Hearts of men as frozen as the kingdoms they live in.

 

Hear the static of a radio? Feel the chill sink into your bones and refuse to leave? Then you must be in the three Ice Kingdoms of Chyraine. No matter where you turn, the icicles can be seen forming in the hearts and minds of all the inhabitants. Or being driven into their backs and throats by their enemies. 

 

Dancing in the Wind 

 

It all started with those darn shoes.

 

Dorothy is stuck in Oz with a trio of off-the-wall, diabolical munchkins, intent on putting her on trial for killing the Witch. She's all for a little bullying, at least when she's dishing it out to the kids back home. But these munchkins go too far when they force her into the Witch's silver shoes and parade her down the yellow brick road like cattle to be judged by the Wizard of Oz. 

 

Bound 

 

Every book has a heartbeat. And some are louder than others.

 

Leda loves her job as a college librarian – books are her friends, ones that take her to far off lands and who don't cheat on her like her last boyfriend did. But a strange incident with a student has her wondering if there's something more sinister about the books in this library. 

 

Of course, Leda can't confide in anyone about her suspicions – they’d think she's crazy. Is she crazy? Or does danger lurk in between the pages?

In his highly acclaimed debut, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Scott Lynch took us on an adrenaline-fueled adventure with a band of daring thieves led by con artist extraordinaire Locke Lamora. Now Lynch brings back his outrageous hero for a caper so death-defying, nothing short of a miracle will pull it off.

After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can’t rest for long—and are soon back to what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.

This time, however, they have targeted the grandest prize of all: the Sinspire, the most exclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world. Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele—and to rise to the top, one must impress with good credit, amusing behavior…and excruciatingly impeccable play. For there is one cardinal rule, enforced by Requin, the house’s cold-blooded master: it is death to cheat at any game at the Sinspire.

Brazenly undeterred, Locke and Jean have orchestrated an elaborate plan to lie, trick, and swindle their way up the nine floors…straight to Requin’s teeming vault. Under the cloak of false identities, they meticulously make their climb—until they are closer to the spoils than ever.

But someone in Tal Verrar has uncovered the duo’s secret. Someone from their past who has every intention of making the impudent criminals pay for their sins. Now it will take every ounce of cunning to save their mercenary souls. And even that may not be enough.…

Praise for Red Seas Under Red Skies

“Lynch hasn’t merely imagined a far-off world, he’s created it, put it all down on paper—the smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Red Seas Under Red Skies firmly proves that Scott Lynch isn’t a one-hit wonder. . . . It’ll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson.”—Fantasy Book Critic

“Grand, grandiose, grandiloquent . . . No critic is likely to fault Lynch in his overflowing qualities of inventiveness, audacious draftsmanship, and sympathetic characterization.”—Locus

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 2:

"Call To Arms was even BETTER than its predecessor, The Changelings. I had no idea that my weekend would include reading all 4 of these books in succession - normally I prefer to get to bed before the sun rises. But holy pixie, Ms. Casey deftly writes with a passion, clarity, and humor that consumes the mind and engages readers of any age." ~Betweenthebind.blogspot.com

“Call to Arms is truly an amazing sequel and I absolutely loved reading it.” ~Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Reviewer

"Book 2 did NOT disappoint! I read it in just a few short hours and now I'm very angry with myself for not slowing down." ~ Shannon-Goodreads Member Review

"Wow - just as brilliant as the first book, and I am SO HAPPY that this is the case. The book was just as thrilling, mysterious, funny (most importantly because I would've hated for Jayne to change at all) with more twists and turns in the lives of the most brilliant characters.” ~ Amazon.co.uk reviewer

A message from the author: A reader fan recently set up a blog dedicated to casting the actors for the War of the Fae movie. No, it is not in production to be made into a movie, nor have I sold the rights to anyone for the movie. But just in case I ever do, my fans will be sure the casting director has a complete line-up ready!

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 3:

"The one thing I can always count on from author Elle Casey, is her uncanny ability to hook a reader into a story or series, and tie them relentlessly into the journey of not only the main protagonist, but also all supporting characters, both good and not so nice. The War of the Fae series is perhaps one of the best examples of this magical connection with her readers. Casey has created a whole world of characters that you very quickly care very much about." ~Lisa Ann, Reviewer on Goodreads

“The drama flew through the roof. Jayne's powers are growing and the demand on her is insane. What I really loved about Call to Arms was the intricacy of the plot and how issues were placed against issues and desires were placed against desires to create a world that did not adhere to a strict and typical diet of 'paranormal young adult fantasy'. Jayne is still cracking jokes, is still cursing, is still making stupid decisions, is still relateable, still has ulterior motives, still is Jayne.” ~Marlon Balraj, Blogger and Reviewer at We Live and Breathe Books blog

“Better and better.  I can't think if a single thing in this series that I don't like and that is saying a lot. The further I get into it the more I can't stop reading. Definitely a series you want to read in order and well worth the read.” ~ Amazon Reviewer

“Each book gives you more and more.  Books 1,2,3 were fantastic. Each book after gives you more and more insight into each character. I am reading these books faster then most because the writer keeps me interested. The anticipation of the next twist is what keeps me wanting to turn the page.” ~ Margaret Thomas, Amazon Reviewer

“Once again Elle Casey raises the bar. Just when you think it can't get any better you read the next book and are blown away.” ~ Jamie, Goodreads reviewer

“Completely addicted to this series. Another great story by Elle Casey. Once again Ms. Casey has deprived me of sleep by writing a story so intriguing that I read through the night.” ~ M. Palmer, Amazon reviewer

“Amazing book! Very hard to put down! A wonderful continuing to the series. But I was about to throw my Kindle clear across the room when I realized I was at the end. I wanted more. Elle Casey is an amazing author. And she is very good at her cliffhangers, she has a way of always making you want more. But that is the mark of only the best of authors. I look forward to her next...” ~ Kristal Coulter, Amazon Reviewer

“This book is laugh out loud funny...but I come to expect that from Elle (her humor and voice speak to me like a best friend)… I have recommended all of Elle's books, and if you read one and like her voice then I would tell you read them all! Thanks again, Elle, for the wild ride and the rush of adrenaline you provide on a regular basis.” ~ Tracey Murphy, Goodreads Reviewer

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 4:

“This series was very hard to put down. I must confess that I laughed and cried throughout this wonderful journey… I would love to see a movie or mini series form from this. Elle Casey has jumped by leaps and bounds to my personal top authors, sharing the space with David Dalglish, R.A. Salvador, Ed Greenwood and Anne McCaffrey....she kicks ass.” ~ Dave Snow, Amazon reviewer

“I cannot begin to explain how much I loved this series. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I am recommending it to everyone I know!! Such a fun read. Great characters and action. Will not disappoint. Jayne is one of those lead characters that you will just fall in love with. Funny, strong, and extremely likeable. I lost track of time while reading these books. Didn't know what day it was, what time it was...or what my family was doing!!! :)  Elle Casey reminds me why I love to try new authors.” ~ Cristina, Goodreads Reviewer

“This book is designed for teenagers and young adults, but it's such a humorous story that any reader will enjoy it. The characters are still just as funny as they were in the other books…This is a must read for anyone who loves fantasy, magic, and a funny story that is extremely complicated but so well-written that you don't even notice all the complexities.” ~ J.C. Cauthon, Goodreads Reviewer

“I love this author… I love that she doesn't spend page after page of boring recap from the previous book. She writes in a manner that will have you laughing out loud (which means people look at me funny because they have no idea what i am doing), crying when she sets it up, and as you read you feel the emotions the main character does. I have read some other series she has done. She always pulls you in and doesn't let you go until she is ready.” ~ adelie21, Amazon reviewer

HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 8:

“The author's creative genius never ceases to amaze me. She writes with such a flair for building on her characters' interactions with one another that as soon as you think you know everything there is to know about the relationships between characters, there is always something new and different going on that surprises the reader. Casey also has a flair for dialogue, particularly Jayne's talent for coming up with new ways to use every dirty word you thought had already been used in every possible way imaginable!” ~ BigBangBookGeek, Amazon Reviewer

“Another Elle Casey book I couldn't put down. This is a GREAT continuation of the story and you really need to start at the beginning before reading this one. This series is one of the few that actually has made me laugh out loud, say "No way", and sit on the edge of my seat all within a chapter or two.” ~ Gary Wilson, Amazon Reviewer

“She does it again. I absolutely love this series. I would love to meet each and every character because they are each hilarious. I was so surprised that there was more to this story, but so happy as well…”~ Amelia Beatty, Goodreads reviewer
