Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s gruff stableman. He is treated as an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz’s blood runs the magic Skill—and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom. Praise for Robin Hobb and Assassin’s Apprentice “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “A gleaming debut in the crowded field of epic fantasies . . . a delightful take on the powers and politics behind the throne.”—Publishers Weekly “This is the kind of book you fall into, and start reading slower as you get to the end, because you don’t want it to be over.”—Steven Brust From the Paperback edition.

From #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes the third and final book in the bestselling Bet Series... (Stand Alone Book/No cliffhanger) Boring Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname... until she wakes up in a hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a wedding the previous night. The biggest problem? She can't seem to remember anything about the night before except for crying into a box of cookies, and she's pretty sure Grandma Nadine slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save them from the ensuing media firestorm. Jace isn't looking for commitment -- he believes he made that clear when he left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can't remember much of anything other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he's stuck with her at some lame couple's retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only a woman like Beth could invoke. He doesn't think it can get any worse. But one spider attack... A donkey ride from hell... And an unfortunate episode with Viagra tea -- and there's one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never have agreed to Grandma Nadine's suggestion in the first place. Because if this isn't paradise, and it isn't a vacation -- that only leaves one option. Survival. But to make it through alive... they might lose their hearts in the process.

In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably bursts into flame. On the Pakistan border, a young man feels a burning in his chest and, against his will, opens fire on Indian troops.

Em 'O Protegido', a humanidade cedeu a noite aos corelings e são poucos que ainda conseguem se esconder atrás das proteções mágicas, rezando para que elas os conduzam para mais um dia. Conforme os anos passam, as distâncias entre as pequenas vilas se aprofundam. Parece que nada pode deter os demônios ou aproximar a humanidade novamente. Arlen, Leesha e Rojer, crianças nascidas nesses pequenos vilarejos hoje isolados, não se conformam com essa situação. Um Mensageiro ensina ao jovem Arlen que o medo, mais que os demônios, tem paralisado a humanidade. Leesha vê a sua vida perfeita ser destruída por uma simples mentira e se torna uma coletora de ervas para uma velha mulher, mais temida que os demônios da noite. E a vida de Rojer muda para sempre quando um menestrel viajante chega à sua cidade e toca seu violino. Mas estes três jovens carregam algo em comum. São todos teimosos, que não se rendem à realidade imposta a eles e sabem que há muitos segredos e mistérios no mundo além do que lhes contaram. Para descobrir isso, eles terão que se arriscar, abandonar suas proteções seguras e encarar os demônios de frente. Juntos, os três podem oferecer à humanidade uma última, e fugaz, chance de sobrevivência.

A book giving its wielder power over the dead has been stolen from a fellowship of mages that has kept the powerful relic dormant for centuries. The thief, a crafty, power-hungry necromancer, intends to use the Book of Lost Souls to resurrect an ancient race and challenge Shroud for dominion of the underworld. Shroud counters by sending his most formidable servants to seize the artifact at all cost.

Among them is a reluctant Guardian who is commissioned by the Emperor to find the stolen Book, a troubled prince who battles enemies both personal and political, and a young girl of great power, whose past uniquely prepares her for an encounter with Shroud.

Warning: This book has explicit sexual scenes in it and is intended for a mature audience. Sex is all I need. I don’t need love. I’m Rush Wilder, bassist of Pandemic Sorrow, which means I can practically have any woman I want—except Jules. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. And that’s fine, because I’m a rocker through and through. Girls that will never have me for more than one night. Wild parties. Tours. . .and Jules always in the back of my mind. Sex was all I had. And she made me think maybe rock stars do need someone to love after all
