On the 12th anniversary of his mother’s disappearance, Zahn hikes to the island summit, only to be awoken by a brilliant object thundering down from the sky, impacting into the beach far below. In a frenzy, he sprints down the mountain, coming across a large crater in the silvery sand. He reaches in, pulling out a triangular plate made of a strange material, moonlight sliding off of it at strange angles.


Conflicted over what to do, Zahn hides the fragment in his room for days, knowing that if he brings it to the observatory, they’ll confiscate it, and then he might never learn the truth.


Then, in the middle of the night, Zahn is awoken by a tapping at his window. He opens it, and to his shock, it’s a man wearing a silvery uniform. There’s more to what Zahn found on the beach than he could have ever imagined, and he’s swept up into a galactic adventure with a cryptic captain and a living starship.


Along the way, he encounters the Vakragha, a species bent on consuming entire stars. And to Zahn’s horror, he learns that they’re heading toward his homeworld. Only the Tulari, a stone that can heal the wounds they cut into space, offers any hope. But saving his world isn’t all he has to worry about. Just when Zahn lands on a moon stolen by the Vakragha, he makes a breakthrough, finally learning his mother’s true fate. Now he is faced with a heartbreaking decision that could either save his world or doom it forever.


Action-packed, with a scope as ambitious as Star Wars, THE TRUTH BEYOND THE SKY will leave you energized and hungry for more.

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.
