Owen Deathstalker, last of the infamous warrior Clan, always considered himself more of a writer than a fighter, preferring his history books to making any actual history with a sword. But books won’t protect him from Her Imperial Majesty Lionstone XIV, who just Outlawed and condemned Owen to death, without any explanation, reason, or warning. No wonder she’s called the Iron Bitch.

Now, on the run from Imperial starcruisers, shady mercenaries, and just about everyone else in the Empire, Owen’s options are limited. Though the name Deathstalker still commands respect in certain quarters, out on the Rim, Owen is lucky he can cobble together a makeshift team of castoffs, including an ex-pirate, a cyborg, and a bounty hunter. But allies won’t be enough to save him.

If he’s to live, Owen can either run forever...or take down the corrupt Empire. To do that, he’ll need the fabled Darkvoid Device—an artifact dating back to the first Deathstalker and perhaps the only weapon powerful enough to help this ragtag rebellion win. The time has come for Owen to finally embrace his Deathstalker heritage...and all the blood and death that go along with it.

Deathstalker is the first book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.

The last human in the universe is on the run from a godlike intelligence in this rip-roaring debut space opera.

Sarya is the galaxy's worst nightmare: a Human.

Fortunately, she's the last one.

Adopted and raised by a terrifying, fiercely maternal spider-like alien, Sarya has lived on a space station her entire life, keeping her identity as a galactic boogeyman secret even as she puzzles over the impossible questions behind her own existence. How it is that she, and she alone, is the sole survivor of a race that was supposedly wiped out centuries ago? Who--or what--has set itself against humanity? And what made the humans so special--or so frightening--that they warranted such treatment?

When a strange visitor recognizes Sarya as Human and makes her an irresistible offer, she's convinced she's about to get the answers she needs--until a series of vicious attacks leaves her world shattered. Suddenly she's running for her life, a step ahead of rioting inhabitants and terrifying enforcers. Together with a band of misfits and cutthroats--including a sentient spacesuit, a pint-sized alien genius named Sandy, and a borderline-immortal android--she makes for the depths of space aboard a stolen ship, in search of the truth behind her existence.

What she discovers is that humanity's death was but one chess move in a war played out across light-years and centuries, by beings with minds so vast and alien that they might as well be gods. Amongst their manipulations, Sarya might--just might--see a path to giving humanity a second chance. But to walk it, she'll have to make a terrible choice...and become something greater, and more alien, than she ever imagined
NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
