About the Book

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of the Illuminae Files comes a new science fiction epic.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the academy would touch…

·         A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm

·         A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates

·         A smart-ass tech whiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder

·         An alien warrior with anger-management issues

·         A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline cases, and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

NOBODY PANIC.

About the Book

Love. Death. War. Betrayal. Magic. Destiny.

New York Times bestselling author Susan Dennard returns to the epic Witchlands series with the story we’ve all been waiting for.

The Bloodwitch Aeduan and the Threadwitch Iseult race for safety as the Raider King’s attempts to subdue the Witchlands gain momentum. Now, his forces sow terror in the mountains, slaughtering innocents. Despite differing goals, Aeduan and Iseult have grown to trust one another in the fight to survive. But trust is a tenuous bond…

War has come once more to the Witchlands. Perhaps if the Truthwitch Safi and Iseult were united, their powers could bring peace. Yet Lady Fate’s knife comes for us all, and the Bloodwitch Aeduan can no longer hide from his past.

 

About the Author

Susan Dennard has come a long way from small-town Georgia. Working in marine biology, she got to travel the world—six out of seven continents, to be exact (she’ll get to you yet, Asia!)—before she settled down as a full-time novelist and writing instructor.

She is the author of the Something Strange and Deadly series as well as the New York Times bestselling books Truthwitch and Windwitch, and when not writing, she’s usually slaying darkspawn (on her Xbox) or earning bruises at the dojo.

She lives in the Midwestern US with her French husband, two spoiled dogs, and two grouchy cats
