It's twelve years since the dead came back. Ravening, mindless zombies have devoured almost every living thing on the planet. The few scattered survivors are getting by on canned goods and a refusal to give in and die. They are lead by Ayaan, a former child soldier turned brilliant strategist. She's twenty-eight years old, in a world where the average life expectancy is twenty-five. Together with her adopted ward Sarah, who has the psychic ability to see the life-force of the undead, she's gathered a few hundred survivors in Africa and given them safety, something to eat, and the possibility of a future.
But out of the east a dead prince has risen. The Tsarevich is able to command his fellow zombies and has crafted them into an unstoppable army. And he has a goal in mind that will take him—and her—across oceans, all the way back to Colorado where the first zombies rose from the grave.
From a New York Times–bestselling author: In a future where androids do most of the work, one man manages to find a job—but it may cost him his life . . .
Max Maxon is an ex-marine who makes his living with a gun. Sasha Casad is a rich teenager trying to catch the next spaceship home. Max’s job is to get her there alive. Somebody’s trying to stop them—somebody with plenty of money and firepower. That doesn’t bother Max. A contract is a contract. Against all odds, he’s going to fulfill this one. And then he’s going to make somebody pay!
“Certain to become a new classic of adventure beyond time . . . An unofficial sequel to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World” (Prehistoric Pulp).
Fifty years after Professor Challenger’s discovery of the Lost World, America’s last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt, leaving a dozen avisaurs, centrosaurs, ankylosaurs, and one large raptor abandoned. Now a daring expedition plans to do the impossible: return the Jurassic giants to the wild. Two filmmakers, a circus trainer, a journalist, and a young Peter Belzoni must find a way to take the dinosaurs across oceans, continents, rivers, jungles, up a mountain that has been isolated for seventy thousand years . . . Then, if they make it, all they will do is face the prehistoric wonders, dangers, and terrors of the Lost World.
To the Vanishing Point
Aliens in the mirror are closer than they appear. The #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Relic takes readers on an out-of-this-world road trip.
The Sonderberg family does not know it yet, but this is not going to be any ordinary road trip. After they pick up an unassuming hitchhiker, a quiet drive down Interstate 40 becomes a trip into an alternate reality. It turns out the family has just given a ride to an alien who has the fate of the universe resting on her shoulders. Now the Sonderberg family must fight evil alongside their new alien friend, in a desperate attempt to save the world they love.
She wakes up alone and feeling like she's half-dead. She can't remember her name. She staggers outside, looking for help—and that's when she sees that the dead have returned to life, that zombies are running in the streets and devouring the living. And she's one of them. She isn't breathing. The zombies leave her alone. Because they know she's one of their kind. And yet she differs from the brainless ghouls around her in some crucial ways.
Somehow she's kept her intelligence intact, if not her memory. And being dead has certain compensations. She has developed strange powers. She calls herself Nilla, and all she knows is that staying alive only gets harder after you die.
Orphans of Earth
The sole survivors of the human race... and their time is running out.
In the wake of Earth’s fall, Peter Alander has just one choice: to use the alien Gifts left behind on his distant colony world to warn other missions of their impending demise, a second wave of alien ships, this time intent on destroying everything in their path. Without the Gifts, humanity would have no hope at all—although no one truly understands them, and it is becoming increasingly certain that the very use of them is what draws the enemy on.
Out of the dark comes help from an entirely unexpected quarter. Peter Alander and his fellow survivors are not the only victims of the terrible Starfish. But what if the cost of that help is too high? What if the price is humanity itself?
Life on Old Earth is simple. Under the rule of the Spark Lords, most chaos has been brought under control. Five unsatisfied teachers out for a night of drinking is nothing out of the ordinary . . . until they find one of their students has been murdered by an unknown alien organism.
When it is discovered that the murdered student’s boyfriend has gone missing, these misfits find themselves tangled in an unofficial homicide investigation that uncovers things they had never imagined. The hunt for a murderer unveils a horrifying conspiracy that may involve everyone from the Spark Lords to the League of Peoples . . . and a force more sinister than anything they could have imagined.

And where is the murder weapon? The rambunctious revelers at Castle P. join in a treacherous treasure hunt for party favors of a decidedly deadly nature...the murder weapon must be hidden behind one of the 144,000 doors, or will it be buried in the back of the next victim?

Innis is a gifted shapeshifter. Now she must do the forbidden: become a man. She must stand at Prince Harkeld's side as his armsman, both protecting and deceiving him. But the deserts of the Masse are more dangerous than the assassins hunting the prince.
