The Librarians and The Lost Lamp (The Librarians #1)
by Greg Cox Release date: Oct 11, 2016
For Fantasy Firsts, we're offering a chance to win one of 10 copies of The Librarians and the Lost Lamp, the first book in the series based on the hit TV show.
Ten years ago, only Flynn Carsen, the last of the Librarians, stood against an ancient criminal organization known as The Forty. They stole the oldest known copy of The Arabian Nights by Scheherazade, and Flynn fears they intend to steal Aladdin’s fabled lamp. He races to find it first before they can unleash the trapped, malevolent djinn upon the world.
Today, Flynn is no longer alone. A new team of inexperienced Librarians, led by Eve Baird, their tough-as-nails Guardian, investigates an uncanny mystery in Las Vegas. A mystery tied closely to Flynn’s original quest to find the lost lamp. . . and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.http://www.tor.com/2017/04/14/deathless-mixes-myth-and-history-and-may-very-well-break-your-heart/
Marya Morevna from Saint Petersburg is six years old when she first sees a bird come courting for her eldest sister’s hand.
Marya is her parents’ fourth child, born in the waning era of the Tsars, and the birds keep coming during the first, hungry years of the Russian Revolution. Marya sees them all arrive—one, two, three!—and disguise themselves as dashing young lieutenants before carrying her sisters off. When she grows to womanhood, she watches for a bird of her own… and she resolves to understand the nature of the magic she knows is coming to claim her.
So begins Catherynne M. Valente’s lyrical novel Deathless—available for a limited time as a free ebook—which infuses Slavic folklore into the early days of the U.S.S.R., mixing myth and gritty historical fact with exceptional finesse.
