This book will become available on December 20, 2019. You will not be charged until it is released.

Mourning the death of Thrax, whose head has been sent to the Hittite king, Ankhesenamun tries to find peace again. But as she resumes her normal life, her world is rocked by another death — this time, that of her brother-husband, Tutankhamun.


As Ankhesenamun tries to keep control of her throne and her country, the chief advisors tighten their own hold on power. Tension escalates as Ankhesenamun tries to keep the advisors at bay. Eventually, stripped of any authority and confined to her own chambers, she does the unthinkable — she sends a message to the Hittite king offering the throne of Egypt to one of his sons.


When the Hittites arrive at the Egyptian border and her actions are uncovered, Ankhesenamun finds her own life in danger. Betrayed by one of her own guards and facing the possibility that her exiled sisters have been found, her future looks bleak.


Ankhesenamun needs to find a way to control the advisors and reclaim her position before one of her sisters is installed on the throne. Because the advisors only need one daughter of Akhenaten alive…

Khulani, a young warrior of the Imaziɣen tribe in modern-day North Africa, knew he had a special gift from an early age. He had always lived a simple life with his tribespeople following the herds of Hartebeest across the endless grasslands that they called their home. Already a successful Hunt Master with the potential to be a great tribal leader, life was good for Khulani.

And then his world was inexplicably turned upside-down.

From the dark and mysterious Uari Ljanub Mountain Range comes a predatory animal with an appetite for human flesh to terrorize his village. Khulani suddenly finds himself facing a violent struggle with an unnatural beast that defies his untrained powers. Desperation compels him to take action that will result in the fight of his life and expose even deeper mysteries about himself that he could never have anticipated.

As if the threat of a deranged carnivore were not enough, two mysterious strangers abruptly appear in his hour of need. Strange forces and a revelation that shakes the whole of the Imaziɣen people instigates a series of events that sends Khulani on an expedition across two continents. He is bound to seek out answers far to the south that will test his gift and determine his fate.

Along the way, Khulani will experience the strange ways of civilizations he knows little about. There are unexpected dangers outside the sheltered existence of his tribal life that he must overcome to survive the journey and learn the truth of his destiny. What Khulani finds will change his life forever.


In what would be A.D. 600 in our history, the Empire still stands, supported by the Legions and Thaumaturges of Rome. Now the Emperor of the West, the Augustus Galen Atreus, will come to the aid of the Emperor of the East, the Augustus Heraclius, to lift the siege of Constantinople and carry a great war to the very doorstep of the Shahanshah of Persia. It is a war that will be fought with armies both conventional and magical, with bright swords and the darkest necromancy. Against this richly detailed canvas of alternate history and military strategy, Thomas Harlan sets the intricate and moving stories of four people. Dwyrin MacDonald is a Hibernian student at a school for sorcerers in Upper Egypt, until he runs afoul of powerful political interests and is sent off half-trained to the Legions. His teacher, Ahmet,undertakes to follow Dwyrin and aid him, but Ahmet is drawn into service with the queen of Palmeyra. Thyatis is a young female warrior, extensively trained by her patron in the arts of covert warfare. And Maxian Atreus is Galens youngest brother, a physician and sorcerer. He has discovered that an enemy of Rome has placed a dreadful curse on the City, which must be broken before Rome can triumph. Woven with rich detail youd expect from a first-rate historical novel, while through it runs yarns of magic and shimmering glamours that carry you deeply into your most fantastic dreams

"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.
Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.
