In book two of the bestselling Chronicles of the Overworld trilogy, Nihal and Sennar forge ahead on their quest Nihal joins the most prestigious chivalric order of the Overworld: the Dragon Knights. Sent to complete her training, she finds herself up against a determined and valiant gnome, an Oarf named Ido. The encounter shakes Nihal’s certainties; suddenly, she realizes that there are those who fight for higher ideals than mere revenge. At the same time, she is forced to face her shadowy past and solve the mystery of a stone that seems to have tremendous power. Meanwhile, Sennar is promoted to the Council of Sorcerers, which leads the resistance against the Tyrant in the lands that are still free. Sennar is sent to the Underworld, a watery realm about which very little is known, to request military aid. It is an almost hopeless mission. Together, Nihal and Sennar must try their hardest to emerge victorious.

Nihal must make an impossible journey to defeat an army of the dead Nihal wakes in the forest, a talisman heavy around her neck. Her armies are scattered, she is sick with fever, and the Tyrant’s grip on the Overworld is tighter than ever. This blue-haired girl, the last of a vanished race of half-elves, is a Dragon Knight, one of the greatest warriors in the land, but the forces of darkness are aligning against her. Using black magic, the Tyrant has found a way to raise fallen soldiers from their graves and force them to do his bidding. But if Nihal can find the eight stones missing from her talisman, she can rid the world of magic and restore peace to the Overworld. With the help of her closest ally, the sorcerer Sennar, she begins the mission that will lead to glorious victory—or certain death. Nihal has the power to save the Overworld from destruction, but can she save herself?

Hellhounds Ate My Homework. Justin won Elyssa's heart and saved his dad from rogue vampires, but just when he thinks he can ride off into the sunset on a white horse, trouble not only knocks on his door, it plows through it with hellhounds. Spawn relatives with their own agendas, vampires running amok, and his father marked for death, it seems there's no end to the kinds of monsters out to make Justin's life miserable. It's almost enough to make him long for the days of man boobs, Kings and Castles, and nerd status. With a list of impossible quests growing faster than he can keep up, tracking down the deadliest assassin in the world may prove easier than winning the approval of Elyssa's parents. The clock ticking, and dark forces on his heels, Justin gets a crash course in the mysteries and dangers of the Overworld. But with Elyssa by his side and his growing menagerie of friends, impossible odds suddenly seem possible again.

In this enchanting collection of poems-a love story and a love letter to an ancient city-the renowned scholar of Italian literature turns his gaze on Spoleto. A curtain is drawn, a harpsichord resounds, a choir chants at midnight, a poor student paces a terrace, a valley swirls reflected in an espresso cup: in poem after poem Paolo Valesio evokes the song and solemnity of Spoleto, a hill town in Umbria and home to no more than 40,000. Home, as well, to the "Festival of Two Worlds," a summer arts festival celebrating the city's two defining realms: the church and the theater. Drawing its title from one of the festival's main events-a series of choir performances at the ancient church of Sant'Eufemia-Midnight in Spoleto explores the unique spaces of the city and the scenes of a life there staged. "As soon as they reached Spoleto, / with twilight approaching, / before even unzipping their bags, / they went to the piazza / to find something they'd left a summer ago." Never far from the lyrical narrative is the figure of St. Francis, the local genie, whose spirit guides and chides our raconteur. Valesio's layered visions and precise rhythms are here transported vitally into English, by the Raiziss/de Palchi-winning translator, Todd Portnowitz.

Furiously Happy meets Elaine Lui in this truly original—and surprisingly hilarious—memoir about one woman’s journey to learn how to walk after a debilitating diagnosis turned her life upside down. Learn How to Walk (Again) To-Do List: Step 1: Stand Step 2: Step Step 3: Pee (Yes!) Step 4: Walk with walker Step 5: Walk with sticks Step 6: Walk without props Recreational interlude for sex Step 7: RUN! Ruth Marshall—power mom, wife, actor, and daughter—was in great health, until one day, her feet started to tingle. She visited doctors and specialists for tests, but no one could figure out the cause of her symptoms. Was she imagining those pesky tingles? She tried to brush it off, even as she tripped over curbs and stumbled into people. Clumsiness is charming, right? But when Ruth suddenly couldn’t feel her legs at all, she knew something was terribly wrong. Her fears were confirmed by an MRI revealing a rare tumour that had been quietly growing on her spine for more than a decade. Within days, surgery was scheduled, and after the intense eight-hour ordeal, Ruth woke up to find her legs and feet had forgotten how to do...well, everything. The question that burned in her mind was, “Will I ever walk again?” What Ruth thought would be three days in the hospital turned into months of rehabilitation as she relearned not only how to walk, run, pee, and even have sex again, but how to better appreciate everyone around her—including her devoted husband, her two young sons, her worried parents, her sisters, her loving friends, and the caring staff at the rehab center who help her tackle her recovery head-on. Laugh-out-loud outrageous and searingly honest, this is a memoir that not only entertains but inspires readers to put their best foot forward and walk off anything life throws their way.

From Mega Nerd to Super Stud. Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing? Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees. While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

THINGS JUST GOT REALER. Justin has just barely caught his breath after surviving an encounter with the most notorious assassin in the Overworld, hellhounds, and his father's demon spawn relatives, when the universe throws him another curve ball. An attack by gray men sends him to Thunder Rock, a dreaded place where Elyssa's father, Thomas Borathen, and a host of Templars were ambushed by demon spawn nearly twenty years ago. Because of this, Thomas despises spawn and hates Justin. Despite Foreseeance 4311 which predicts Justin may be the only thing standing between the world and a cataclysm, not to mention major family issues and a pair of angels who each want him to join their side of the conflict, Justin realizes he may be able to gain something even more important than world peace: the approval of Elyssa's father. But first, he'll have to find the culprit responsible for the ambush and bring him to Templar justice. Trying to escape Thunder Rock, Justin is hurtled through an Obsidian Arch and ends up in Colombia. Elyssa is captured by her father, who's determined to make her take the White, a Templar ritual which will erase all her memories of Justin. Death cannot stop true love. But a mind wipe probably will. Thousands of miles from home with destiny breathing down his neck, Justin has to solve a mystery older than he is, overcome new enemies, and make a citizen's arrest on the crazy mofo behind the insanity so he can save Elyssa and gain acceptance from her family. Because true love is totally worth it.
