Breakaway

Summary

Cassandra Kresnov is a highly advanced hunter-killer android. She has escaped the League and fled to Callay, a member of the Federation. Because of her fighting skills she was able to save the president's life and is now a trusted member of the security forces. However, not all Tanushans are happy to have her on their turf and Cassandra has to tread carefully. As Callay moves towards a vote on whether to break away from the Federation, confusion reigns and terrorist groups plot their own agendas. Cassandra becomes involved with two young troubleshooters for the secret service and finds out more than she ever wanted to know about the Tanushan underground and those on the fringes. Furthermore, there is a delegation from the League in Tanusha, and Cassandra is not sure that they won't try to take her back. Breakaway is a great story with a cracking plot and strong characters. At its heart is the enigma of Cassandra: Is she more human than human, or is she totally untrustworthy?

Summary

The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress, Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again, and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her - not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp. Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts - vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion and nothing to do with the kingdom's brash, lethally seductive demon king - a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met and has been in her wicked dreams ever since. As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realizations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?

Summary

Possessed by a need to save a beautiful Amazon warrior from the vision he witnessed, Loke snatched her from the midst of the battle between the Third and Fifth realm of the demons and carried her to his home deep in the black mountains of hell to protect her. But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she's anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn that she might be more to him than an enemy - she might be his fated female. Anais remembers meeting a handsome warrior in the heat of battle, a man who was her enemy but who looked at her with eyes that held dark heat and wicked promises. When she wakes to find that same dragon shifter has taken her captive, desire is the last thing on her mind, but escaping him to return to Archangel, the hunter organization she works for, sounds less than appealing when he reveals the reason he took her - to stop her from dying. Can Loke protect Anais from the dangers of his realm? And how far will he go to save her from the future he keeps witnessing? Can Anais resist the fierce attraction that burns between them as hot as fire and stay true to Archangel, or will her heart be taken by the dragon?

Summary

Listen to this thought-provoking, critically acclaimed novel from Frances Hardinge, winner of the Costa Book of the Year and Costa Children's Book Awards. Faith Sunderly leads a double life. To most people, she is reliable, dull, trustworthy - a proper young lady who knows her place as inferior to men. But inside, Faith is full of questions and curiosity, and she cannot resist mysteries: an unattended envelope, an unlocked door. She knows secrets no one suspects her of knowing. She knows that her family moved to the close-knit island of Vane because her famous scientist father was fleeing a reputation-destroying scandal. And she knows, when her father is discovered dead shortly thereafter, that he was murdered. In pursuit of justice and revenge, Faith hunts through her father's possessions and discovers a strange tree. The tree bears fruit only when she whispers a lie to it. The fruit of the tree, when eaten, delivers a hidden truth. The tree might hold the key to her father's murder - or it may lure the murderer directly to Faith herself. Frances Hardinge is the author of many acclaimed novels, including Cuckoo Song, which earned five starred reviews.

Summary

Lady Juliette Trent has spent the months since becoming London's most notorious jilted bride in virtual isolation. When the impromptu Frost Fair on the Thames finally draws her out of her self-imposed confinement, the last person she expects to see is the very man who left her standing at the altar. But things aren't always what they seem, and when Sebastian Holmes, Earl of Haverstan, reveals his true reason for abandoning her, Juliette is determined to right the wrong that was done to them both - even if it means causing a scandal the ton won't soon forget. This novella is complete at 29,000 words. This story was originally released with Heather Snow's Loving Lady Dervish in a limited time novella 'duet' called A Midwinter's Scandal. The set is no longer available, but I highly recommend listening to Heather's complementary story as well in order to enjoy the world to its fullest.
