Jasmine is determined to track him down when she receives an anonymous package, postmarked New Orleans-the bracelet she gave Kimberly for her eighth birthday. She approaches Romain because she knows he can help her… if he chooses. But searching for the man who irrevocably changed both their lives means they have to rise to a killer's challenge: stop me.

"An engrossing and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." -Los Angeles Times Nathaniel Philbrick, author of In the Heart of the Sea, Pulitzer Prize finalist Mayflower,and Valiant Ambition, is a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life.

The final battle to defeat Herobrine will take Gameknight999 over land and under water! Herobrine is rallying all the monsters of Minecraft to one server in hopes of eliminating Gameknight999 and his friends once and for all. They destroy every village they find, threatening to continue until the User-that-is-not-a-user surrenders. Gameknight has just two things: the Oracle’s command to seek out the lost ocean monument and an impenetrable riddle: “Look to the lowliest and most insignificant of creatures, for that is where your salvation will lie.” Haunted by this seemingly useless clue, Gameknight searches for the mysterious underwater lair where the Book of Wisdom is hidden, which he is told holds the secret to the riddle and the key to defeating Herobrine. But at every turn lies a massive army of monsters. With no map to guide them, Gameknight and his friends will fight for their lives to reach the deep ocean destination, and a terrifying creature awaits them there.

November 1950, the Korean Peninsula: After General MacArthur ignores Mao’s warnings and pushes his UN forces deep into North Korea, his 10,000 First Division Marines find themselves surrounded and hopelessly outnumbered by 100,000 Chinese soldiers near the Chosin Reservoir. Their only chance for survival is to fight their way south through the Toktong Pass, a narrow gorge that will need to be held open at all costs. The mission is handed to Captain William Barber and the 234 Marines of Fox Company, a courageous but undermanned unit of the First Marines. Barber and his men climb seven miles of frozen terrain to a rocky promontory overlooking the pass, where they will endure four days and five nights of nearly continuous Chinese attempts to take Fox Hill. Amid the relentless violence, three-quarters of Fox’s Marines are killed, wounded, or captured. Just when it looks like they will be overrun, Lt. Colonel Raymond Davis, a fearless Marine officer who is fighting south from Chosin, volunteers to lead a daring mission that will seek to cut a hole in the Chinese lines and relieve the men of Fox. This is a fast-paced and gripping account of heroism in the face of impossible odds.
