fall's biggest titles


Featured on io9.com's Summer Reading List

Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in 'the golden hills of the west' (California).

Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company -- there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.

fall's biggest titles


"Breath-taking, heart-wrenching, and just so perfect. Answers were given and I'm still coping" -- Monica

"I am in awe of this series . . . If there is any epic love story, then it's the one from Luce and Daniel." -- Danny

 

Rapture, the fourth & final Fallen novel, is the Lauren Kate book the world has been waiting for.

Like sand through an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn't know if he can do this--live only to lose Luce again and again. Yet together they face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed.

And suddenly Luce knows what must happen. For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they've borne has always and only been about her--and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now is the only one that truly matters. In the fight for Luce, who will win?


Enter the Random Buzzers contest for your chance to have lunch with Lauren Kate and win a Fallen-inspired dress.

Kvetha Fricäya!

Kvetha Fricaya. Greetings, Friends.

Wow! Quite a lot has happened since my last note to you. I had an amazing book tour in Europe, and I'm just finishing my tour through Scotland, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

The European tour began in Germany, then proceeded onward to The Netherlands, Spain, France, the Czech Republic, and finally Italy.

In every place the kindness of the publishers and the enthusiasm of the readers bowled me over. The last time I toured Europe was in 2006, so I wasn't sure what sort of response to expect. It was, to put it mildly, epic.

At nearly every event, hundreds and sometimes thousands of people showed up. In Prague, I signed for five hours straight. In Barcelona, a young woman had me sign her arm... and then she had my signature tattooed onto her! In Germany, I had a crowd of kids charge my table, almost knocking it over. In the Netherlands, I attended the awesome Elf Fantasy Fair and got to sign outside a real-life castle! In France, the mayor of one of the towns came to my event, and I got to watch the sun set over Paris from within the Jules Vern Restaurant at the top of the Eiffel Tower. And in Italy, I got to see lots of beautiful countryside, and readers asked some very interesting questions about religion and ethics.

As always, I feel humbled by the love that readers have for the Inheritance cycle. Seeing it makes me all the more excited to write something new.

In total I will have been on the road for about three months. And though I'm not yet through this trip, I already know that it's changed me. It's given me a broader sense of the world, and it's helped me to see my own path more clearly. I'm glad I went, and I'm glad that so many of you were able to come to my events.

So thank you. And may your swords stay sharp!

In my next newsletter, I'll share my adventures from Down Under!

Christopher Paolini

Brave hits theaters on June 22nd, 2012.

Cast: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Craig Ferguson, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In "Brave," a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.
