The Fourth Horseman by David Hagberg

The Fourth Horseman by David Hagberg Pakistan is torn apart by riots in the streets. The CIA sends Pakistan expert David Haaris to meet with leaders of the military intelligence apparatus which all but controls the country, to try to head off what appears to be the disintegration of the government.

But Haaris has other ideas. After disguising himself, he beheads the president in front of a mob of ten thousand people and declares himself the new Messiah. He says he will bring peace and stability to the country by allying with the Taliban.

At that moment, miles to the south on the border with Afghanistan, one of four stolen nuclear weapons is detonated.

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagent international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

Another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. Black London is rising again–and so to keep magic’s balance, another London must fall.

Good Girls by Glen Hirshberg

Good Girls by Glen Hirschberg Fates collide in a small town where fear and love are two sides of the same coin and life and death lie far too close together.

Three-time International Horror Guild and Shirley Jackson Award Winner Glen Hirshberg brings his flair for the grim, grisly, and emotionally harrowing to Good Girls, the standalone sequel to Motherless Child.

The Ironsmith by Nicholas Guild

The Ironsmith by Nicholas Guild This is the story of Joshua, a carpenter from the village of Nazareth who is called to preach the coming of God’s judgment. This is the story of his ministry and its terrible end, seen through the eyes of his kinsman and closest friend, Noah the ironsmith. Noah, a pious man but one who understands the darkness of a world in which treachery and murder are the common currency of power, is prepared to risk his own life to save Joshua’s.
The product of twenty years of research and a deep understanding of the ancient world, Nicholas Guild’s The Ironsmith is a story for everyone who cares about the origins of faith and the mystery of God’s relationship with man.
