Inanna Arthen
 In the spring of 1955, new-minted vampire Diana Chilton rejoins civilization after the Fae boot her out of her self-pity, and meets an old friend, Jack Garrett, who recognizes her as a vampire. Jack proposes that he and Diana start a secret magical group and use their training and powers to manifest political and social change--exactly what Diana had wanted to do for many years.  With two other highly gifted magicians, David Hofstein and April McFarland, Jack and Diana form their coven devoted at manipulating and changing other people, using powerful magic and mind-altering drugs. As the years pass, April, David and Diana slowly begin to question the wisdom of what they're doing and whether they can trust Jack. After a devastating reality check in November, 1963, and with other interests calling each of them, the three quit the group. Coldly angry, Jack packs his things and disappears. Left on her own, Diana follows clues she has been collecting for ten years and tracks down a vampire now using the name Troy Stevenson, but born Edward Tillinger in South Kingston, Rhode Island. He has joined a small commune of people starting an organic farm in a sprawling farmhouse in Sheridan, Massachusetts. The group accepts Diana and she joins their family. For the first time in many years, she feels that she has truly come home. Over the next six years, hints and news trickle back to Diana that suggest Jack may be working alone on a scheme far beyond anything their coven had dreamed of. As Troy investigates reports from Brazil and the Philippines that he thinks may help them solve some of the mysteries of their vampiric condition, Diana realizes that she has unfinished business. She is forced to choose between accompanying Troy on his travels, and stopping Jack from an action that will change history and life as she knows it forever.

New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).
 
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
 
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
 
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
 
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.
