In the coastal town of Twisted Cedars, Oregon an ugly secret from the past has been festering for over thirty years when five librarians were targeted by a serial killer. Now an anonymous emailer wants true crime writer Dougal Lachlan to tell the story. To uncover the truth Dougal enlists the help of local Twisted Cedar librarian Charlotte Hammond.

Since the disappearance of her older sister, Daisy, eight years ago, Charlotte has led a quiet, sheltered life. But as Dougal’s investigation proceeds she realizes there is no safe zone. Not even in libraries. And especially not in Twisted Cedars.

Reviews:
“CJ Carmichael is a seasoned author… and this shows in Buried. She has written a fluid, easy to fall into mystery and I’m really hoping there will be more books in this series. The first installment in the Twisted Cedar Mysteries was a great read and I can’t wait for more.” – Cozy Reader

“One of my favorite elements of Carmichael’s books is her gripping portrayal of family dynamics.” Kathy Altman, USA Today

DESCRIPTION:

Ghosts. Gaslight. Gears. Welcome to a wondrous age of steam where pirates, rust, and syphilis aren’t all you need to worry about. Ghosts abound!

In this hissing and clanking steampunk anthology, there are moments that science just can’t explain. All the mechanical geniuses scratch their heads and whisper words of ghosts and powers, of spirits and demons. Possessed automatons take on lives of their own. Superstitious pilots take all necessary precautions. Avant-garde machinists harness the spirits to power their creations. Revenge-minded ghosts stalk haunted gasworks. This is a mechanized playground for the souls of the dead.

Again and again, the spirit world proves itself inspiring and dangerous, useful and annoying. In rich steampunk worlds, chock full of gizmos and gadgets aplenty, these are the stories that go bump, clatter, boom in the night.

DESCRIPTION:

“It is difficult to read this engaging memoir without a smile on one’s face . . . moments of sheer joy . . . [a] mesmerizing and memorable book.” —The Economist
 
Chosen as a Book of the Year by the Scotsman, the Financial Times, and the Sunday Herald
Gavin Francis fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition when he spent fourteen months as the basecamp doctor at Halley, a profoundly isolated British research station on the Caird Coast of Antarctica—so remote that it is said to be easier to evacuate a casualty from the International Space Station than it is to bring someone out of Halley in winter.
 
Antarctica offered a year of unparalleled silence and solitude, with few distractions and a rare opportunity to live among emperor penguins, the only species truly at home in the Antarctic. Following penguins throughout the year—from a summer of perpetual sunshine to months of winter darkness—Francis explores the world of great beauty conjured from the simplest of elements, the hardship of below-zero temperatures and the unexpected comfort that the penguin community brings. Empire Antarctica is the story of one man’s fascination with the world’s loneliest continent, and the emperor penguins who weather the winter with him.
 
Includes maps and illustrations
 
“Part travelogue, part memoir, part natural history book, a fascinating, lyrical account of one of the strangest places on earth and its majestic inhabitants.” —Esquire
 
“Highly readable, enjoyable . . . the author writes vividly of auroras, clouds, stars, sunlight, darkness, ice and snow . . . A literate, stylish memoir of personal adventure rich in history, geography and science.” —Kirkus Reviews

Expanded Description:
Game Over (A Series of Ends, Book 1) takes place in the distant future, in a place far, far away from the planet we call home, in the virtual universe called Elisium.

Imagine a society freed from crime and illness, one sustained by a single, eminently logical system that was designed to seek ultimate perfection. The Sibyl System seeks the elusive state of human perfection, and, through the course of its quest, the System will become its greatest enemy.

Now imagine that a reluctant hero is called– no wait, sent?– to save what remains of the human race residing on what was once proudly called Earth by its inhabitants.

Ekko Everlasting is thrust into the world of the game, No-Life, without any corresponding memories to motivate him to think about anything besides himself. Ekko cares about saving his own skin and regaining his lost self– exclusively in that order– not saving the universe, let alone two!

DESCRIPTION:

She no longer wants to be a part of his world. But he must convince her to save it…

Ashe is one mission away from earning her soul. Nearly three centuries after her disastrous on-land escapade, the former mermaid has a final assignment: protect a marine biologist on his quest to save the oceans. Perhaps it’s pure coincidence that Varun Zale is the descendant of the prince she once chose not to kill.

Varun can’t explain how storms obey Ashe or why her eye color changes to match the tossing waves, but he suspects she is more than the mute ship captain she pretends to be. His growing fascination leads him from the shallows of a fairy tale to the depths of a mystery older than recorded time. In the midnight reaches of the ocean, monstrous titans stir. An unstoppable disease becomes a weapon in the hands of the mer-king.

Nothing Varun has ever imagined or believed about mermaids is true. And being wrong could cost him everything…

You will be swept away by this genre-blending masterpiece of urban fantasy, science fiction, fairy tales, and mythology. ONE-CLICK to dive under the sea today!
