Book Summary:

An enchanted coin. A witch’s curse. And rats, rats everywhere! What’s a boy to do? “Fresh and satisfying for middle grade readers” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). When Rudi Bauer accidentally takes a witch’s coin, he unleashes her curse. Accident or not, he knows he’s got to fix things, so he tries to return the coin, only to lose it on the witch’s magic mountain just as the snows come. Plagued all winter by terrible dreams, Rudi tries to find the coin again in the spring, but it has vanished—and a plague of rats has descended on his village. Then a stranger arrives and promises to rid the village of rats…for the price of the missing coin. Desperate to get rid of the rats, the villagers agree; but when they cannot pay, the stranger exacts a price too terrible for anyone to bear. Now Rudi is going to need all his courage—and some help from his savvy grandmother and a bold young girl—to set things right in this fast and funny adventure.

Book Summary:

The battle for Vicksburg roils still, the outcome of the Union siege undecided as specters reload and carry on. The Pascagoula River sings out in grief, and a three-legged lady stalks a country lane outside Columbus. The Magnolia State is more than antebellum homes, fish camps and the blues. This is a land worthy of its matchless storytellers. Even after being passed back and forth between the Spanish, French and British, the ancient energy of the original inhabitants still reverberates through the region. From forgotten tales of African slaves, once the majority population, to yarns of bloodthirsty backwoodsmen on the Natchez Trace, author Alan Brown goes beyond the bullet points of Mississippi history. The legends often tell a clearer story than anything else.

A New York Times Bestseller Deluxe edition with special embellishments on first printing only! “Spectacular, singular, and spellbinding.” —Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue The Last Magician meets The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy in this thrilling and atmospheric historical fantasy following a young woman who discovers she has magical powers and is thrust into a battle between witches and wizards. In 1911 New York City, seventeen-year-old Frances Hallowell spends her days as a seamstress, mourning the mysterious death of her brother months prior. Everything changes when she’s attacked and a man ends up dead at her feet—her scissors in his neck, and she can’t explain how they got there. Before she can be condemned as a murderess, two cape-wearing nurses arrive to inform her she is deathly ill and ordered to report to Haxahaven Sanitarium. But Frances finds Haxahaven isn’t a sanitarium at all: it’s a school for witches. Within Haxahaven’s glittering walls, Frances finds the sisterhood she craves, but the headmistress warns Frances that magic is dangerous. Frances has no interest in the small, safe magic of her school, and is instead enchanted by Finn, a boy with magic himself who appears in her dreams and tells her he can teach her all she’s been craving to learn, lessons that may bring her closer to discovering what truly happened to her brother. Frances’s newfound power attracts the attention of the leader of an ancient order who yearns for magical control of Manhattan. And who will stop at nothing to have Frances by his side. Frances must ultimately choose what matters more, justice for her murdered brother and her growing feelings for Finn, or the safety of her city and fellow witches. What price would she pay for power, and what if the truth is more terrible than she ever imagined?

Book Summary:

Gods make lousy parents. All Magni wants is peace and quiet, but when your father is the God of thunder, you don’t get to live the life you want. When Thor destroys all his son knows and loves, Magni vows to bring prosperity and end the violence… forever. But can you escape cruelty in a universe built on it, or the shadow of your father when everyone calls you by his name? Maya, her rage more powerful than she knows, wants freedom to pursue her own destiny. Neither torture nor blackmail can make her obedient or pretty enough for Freya, her foster-mother and Goddess of love. Fighting for independence and revenge, can a mere human win a game where Gods dictate the rules? 2020 Stabby Nominee –Best Self-Published/Independent Novel "A haunting, brutal, and emotional coming of age story, steeped in Norse mythology and written in spare but lyrical prose, Children is a book that demands to be felt rather than read. Its hard-hitting story and dark humor combine to make this a grim book with lots of heart, a book that will stick with me for a long time." – Angela Boord, author of Fortune's Fool "Faced with gods who are interested only in their own goals, happy to use their own children to further their ambition in the face of a foretold end, Children can be read as allegory or fantasy. Drawing on established Norse myths but adding a unique interpretation, Larssen’s tale made me wince with witnessed pain, and cry, and, once or twice, snort with laughter. His evocative prose will linger in my mind for a long time. Not a book easily forgotten." – Marian L Thorpe, author of Empire's Daughter

Canticles for Lobotomy By: Robert S. Sosna For private eye Rashid Sosnova and his wife/partner, Talullah Blackwell, weird cases are nothing out of the ordinary. The Valley of Rabbits, in parallel-universe Pansylvania, has plenty of weird to go around. But when an incident on the yeti-infested Big Mountain seems to connect to a string of bad-guy lobotomies by a vigilante called Dr. Lobe, Rashid and friends find themselves neck deep in a full-fledged bigfoot noir that ties directly to the city’s highest mafia bosses and to Rashid’s own past. The fact that our hero suffers from Proteus Syndrome, the “Elephant Man” disease, doesn’t slow him down, even if he does walk with a cane. Behind that misleading exterior lies the mind of a master monster detective and he’s definitely on the case.

Magic beans quickly lead to danger in this standalone companion to The Brixen Witch, which Kirkus Reviews called “fresh and satisfying” in a starred review. When Rudi Bauer sets out for town one morning, he never dreams that Susanna Louisa will sell his family’s cow—for magic beans, no less! But that’s exactly what she does, and the consequences will be disastrous unless Rudi can return the magic beans to their rightful owner, the evil witch of Petz. The journey to Petz is long and hard, but Rudi and Susanna Louisa soon find a shortcut: a magically sprouted beanstalk leads them straight there...and straight into danger. Because the evil witch of Petz is really a terrible giant who has locked away summer and keeps his kingdom a frozen wasteland. And in order to defeat him, Rudi is going to need a little magic of his own.

An Adventure that Spans Time and the Sea from the South Coast of Maine to the Lands Behind the Northern Lights Sim Spotswood decides not to keep his after school appointment with Dr. McCreedy to get his teeth straightened. Instead he wanders to the clam flats where Lost River meets the sea and where a Viking ship, unearthed from the silt of a thousand years, sits like the skeleton of a dragon in its cofferdam. Sim discovers buried in the sand, a small medallion the size of a half dollar. That he should be the one to find it is no accident. At least Dr. Asneath Plever of the Smithsonian doesn't think so. Nor does Winifred Hazel Chit, the Witch of thunderhead Cliff who has waited one hundred and eleven years for Sim to undertake the adventure that now unfolds. As more of the medallions appear Sim encounters other searchers including Splitface and Gold-Tipped-Smith who know the power of the Starlight Medallions and want them for themselves. Sim, who has never known his father, lies at night on the widows walk of his home with his dog, Walter, watching the celestial canopy, waiting for a shooting star upon which he can make his wish, the same wish he has made every night for a long as he has known the words of the wishing verse. Now as he travels with the Starlight Medallions to places where no one has gone before, it seems that wish may come true.

Therese is forced to deliver her babies in the midst of an all-out war with enemies more powerful than the Olympians. *Formerly The Gatekeeper's Promise "BEST MYTHOLOGY SERIES! There were so many times when I would say out loud, I DID NOT see that coming! I laughed, cried, yelled, cheered, and just generally went on a crazy emotional roller coaster ride. This series was GREAT from start to end and hopefully we will hear a reunion in the making at some point (hint hint)! I recommend this book to parents and kids alike as both will enjoy A LOT!"--Jennifer Pierson ★★★★★ "LOVE THIS SERIES!!From the first page until the end, I was thinking the story would go one way and she tricked me and it was even better than I thought!"--Dowie O. ★★★★★ "I have fallen in love with Than and Therese over the series. The supporting cast of characters are phenomenal. Each book in the series has kept me up and craving more. This one is packed with far more action than the rest, with gods battling, kidnapping, deception, stolen powers, and more. With all of the plot twists, you will be on the edge of your seat the whole time! If you like a happily ever after to a series, you will be quite pleased with this one."--Stephanie S. ★★★★★ "All of the characters that I have grown to know and love in this series were back. I feel like I'm reading about close friends since I'm emotionally invested in this series. . . . The story flowed smoothly and moved quickly and there were several twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. I really loved this book, and this series, and I definitely recommend it."--Kathy E. ★★★★★ "This novel was much more action packed than its predecessors. Battles are waged, entire ways of life are defended, yet Pohler tactfully avoids the violence in this tale. I found myself caught up in the plight of the characters, trying to help them along, and keep them on the winning side, even when it seemed impossible. . . . As a whole, this story was informative, enlightening, and a pleasure to read. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed. It's a story that parents and teens alike will love."--Jonel B.

Book Summary:

Throughout Disney's phenomenally successful run in the entertainment industry, the company has negotiated the use of cutting-edge film and media technologies that, J. P. Telotte argues, have proven fundamental to the company's identity. Disney's technological developments include the use of stereophonic surround sound for Fantasia, experimentation with wide-screen technology, inaugural adoption of three-strip Technicolor film, and early efforts at fostering depth in the animated image. Telotte also chronicles Disney's partnership with television, development of the theme park, and depiction of technology in science fiction narratives. An in-depth discussion of Disney's shift into digital filmmaking with its Pixar partnership and an emphasis on digital special effects in live-action films, such as the Pirates of the Caribbean series, also highlight the studio's historical investment in technology. By exploring the technological context for Disney creations throughout its history, The Mouse Machine illuminates Disney's extraordinary growth into one of the largest and most influential media and entertainment companies in the world. Hardback is unjacketed.

He was free to lie back and watch as his new daughter grew. And grow she did—by leaps and bournds, shooting through infancy in a matter of months. She took her first steps and learned to swim in the same week. An amalgam of magic and heredity, Mistaya was born a seedling, nourished by soils from Landover, Earth, and the fairy mists, come into being in the dank, misty deadness of the Deep Fell. She was as lovely as her mother, the sylph Willow, with dazzling green eyes that cut to the soul. Ben wished he could enjoy his daughter's childhood and his happy kingdom forever. Alas, those idyllic days were not to last. For Rydall, king of lands beyond the fairy mist, rode up to the gates of Sterling Silver and shattered peace of Landover. His armies were poised on the border, ready to invade unless Ben accepted a challenge: Rydall would send seven champions to face Ben, each in a different form. If Ben triumphed over all seven, Rydall would then abandon his claims to the kingdom. Some counseled the High Lord to refuse Rydall's challenge, but Holiday could not, for Mistaya had been snatched from her guardians by foul magic. And Rydall held the key to her fate. . . .

Book Summary:

Family always comes first. Alma, New York is the perfect town, right down to the coordinated shopfront decorations on Main Street, and Gina Dewar is the perfect wife, mother, daughter-in-law. She understands the responsibility that comes with marrying into America’s golden family, and she tries not to burden her husband Bobby with drama from her own small-town past. But a summer house in the Hamptons doesn’t always buy happiness, and the Dewars aren’t quite as apple pie as they seem. When Bobby is publicly accused of having an affair cracks start to appear in the Dewar clan, and when he denies any knowledge, Gina faces an impossible dilemma. Should she stand by her husband, or listen to her sister-in-law, telling her that there is more to this story? As the town explodes with speculation, Gina tries to keep the gossips out of her marriage. After all, no one knows better than her that secrets should stay in the family. But then she hears the rumor that Bobby’s supposed mistress is pregnant and she is shaken to the core. With the future of her family so uncertain, Gina is about to find out what she’s willing to do to protect those she loves… A moving, emotionally gripping novel about family secrets and the space between loyalty and trust.

Book Summary:

In this world so much like our own, monsters are not merely legends told around the campfire: vampires lurk in the night, werewolves run under the full moon, shapeshifters hide behind borrowed veneers, and magicians weave fantastic spells – for a price. They are living breathing citizens among the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In this world, sometimes the lines of what a true monster is get blurred; sometimes the true monsters are just everyday folk. A man plagued by his hatred manifesting as a murderous alter ego. A werewolf who just wants to live a life free from the fear that he may hurt someone. A vampire who has lived to see over half a millennium and lost his purpose. A reanimated corpse - an anomaly even in this diverse world - and the insane genius who created him. These are their stories: the monsters, everyday people, and most of all, the true monsters hiding behind human faces.

Book Summary:

Teresa just wants to spend the long weekend having fun with friends. But her parents stick her with taking care of her stupid little half-sister, Felicia—Flea. But Teresa refuses to let Flea ruin her weekend plans, so she drags Flea with her to the banks of the Rio Grande, where Teresa meets up with her friends to drink beer and smoke weed. In the midst of a lunar eclipse, painting the riverside blood red, Flea runs into the thick undergrowth of Albuquerque’s Bosque Trail. When Teresa goes to find her, she catches only a glimpse of Flea before she vanishes with La Llorona, the mythical child-stealing ghost. Frantic, Teresa entreats a witch to enable her to find her sister. To do so, she must travel to an alternate Albuquerque, where the past and present are one and madness reigns. Flea in the Dark marks the debut of Devon Stevens, who deftly incorporates elements of Southwestern folklore and Lovecraftian horror. This compelling modern fantasy explores the intricacies of a mixed-race family, the absurdity of discrimination based on appearance, and the difficulty in coming to terms with the past to discover a greater capacity to love.

Book Summary:

When Gretel—yes, that Gretel, now all grown up and working as a private investigator—takes on the case of a missing sorcerer, she doesn't realize that it will take her into the heart of the deep, dark woods, and face to face with an old enemy... Gretel has never had any time for sorcerers, considering them nothing more than show-offs with questionable fashion sense. It is with some reluctance and a deal of grumpiness, then, that she agrees to look into the matter of a murdered magician. All that is left of him is a grisly remnant, which the police quack confirms is the murdered man’s appendix. What has become of the rest of him is baffling the local constabulary, the Sorcerers’ Society, and, not least, the hapless trickster’s widow. As Gretel delves into the facts behind his disappearance she discovers no shortage of suspects. In fact, just about everyone she meets had reason for wanting the odious man dead. Her only clue points in one disturbing direction: the deep dark forest. So it is that Gretel, with a reluctant Hans as porter, must trek into the woods of her childhood trauma, braving all manner of discomforts and dangers—not least of which is a terrifying reminder of her past.

Book Summary:

"Once upon a time" is a magical phrase; an incantation that conjures stories into being and gives them life. What we now call "fairy tales" outlived their original creators, outlasted their descendants, and one day might very well survive the death of our species. When, and if, humanity leaves this planet, fairy tales will make the journey too -- into the far-flung reaches of the galaxy and into the distant dimension of the future. How different will the fairy tales of the future be from the stories told around hearth fires a thousand years ago? I suspect they will be utterly different and yet completely familiar. -- from Katherine Tomlinson's introduction The Seed Stitch Solution, by Ginn Hale How to Marry Off Your Human, by Shauna Roberts Whitey and Red: The Hunt for Ursa, by Bonnie Hearn Hill The Plague of Hamelin, by Clare Toohey The Bear, the Hare, and the Spider, by R.C.
