Firefly meets Dune in this action-packed sci-fi adventure about a close-knit, found family of a crew navigating a galaxy of political intrigue and resource-driven power games. Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can’t resist her, even if her ship is an antique. As for Nev, he’s a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary. But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they’re more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive. Nev’s mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she’ll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power—and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew. "An entertaining intergalactic ride." —Bulletin "[A] well-executed sci-fi caper...full of intriguing commentary about wealth inequality and exploitation." —Booklist

A stunning shapeshifter romance from the New York Times–bestselling author of Prince of Wolves and Prince of Dreams. Spending the summer in Minnesota as a child, Alexandra developed a strong bond with a wolf pup named Shadow. The encounter led to a lifelong love of wolves, and she has never forgotten Shadow—or the young boy she met one day who acted like her friend. Now, seventeen years later, Alex is no longer the innocent and carefree girl she once was, but she still finds solace in the wilderness and with the wolves she has dedicated her life’s work to. Returning to Minnesota, her joy at reuniting with Shadow is soon clouded by amazement, as the wolf reveals himself to be a man named Kiernan. Alex vows to help Kiernan, who is plagued with amnesia and believes he is responsible for a series of grisly murders. By discovering the truth—in both the past and in themselves—Alex and Kiernan will find the peace they need to heal and bridge the gap between their separate worlds.

How high-level behaviors arise from low-level rules, and how understanding this relationship can suggest novel solutions to complex real-world problems such as disease prevention, stock-market prediction, and data mining on the Internet. The term "artificial life" describes research into synthetic systems that possess some of the essential properties of life. This interdisciplinary field includes biologists, computer scientists, physicists, chemists, geneticists, and others. Artificial life may be viewed as an attempt to understand high-level behavior from low-level rules -- for example, how the simple interactions between ants and their environment lead to complex trail-following behavior. An understanding of such relationships in particular systems can suggest novel solutions to complex real-world problems such as disease prevention, stock-market prediction, and data mining on the Internet. Since their inception in 1987, the Artificial Life meetings have grown from small workshops to truly international conferences, reflecting the field's increasing appeal to researchers in all areas of science.

The comfort of Jade Anne’s mountain retreat collapses when she receives a letter from an old flame, Stephan Peltzini. As ex-coworkers, they have had no contact for five years. She has tried to forget the past and become invisible, but the letter arrives in her new name and address. It finds her like a wild animal tracking its prey. Stephan tells Jade she is sole heir of a family fortune in a bank in Germany. Hints about her family heirlooms to make the letter seem credible. He suggests that she travel to an abandoned farmhouse after a package of vital family information. By the time she finishes the letter, her curiosity is piqued. The car is full of gas and the farmhouse is only a day’s drive away. She ignores the clanging bell of better judgment and decides to retrieve the mysterious package. Blinded by love and naïve trust, she is pulled into the spiritual journey of a lifetime. She finds herself locked in an unhealthy relationship and exposed to extreme darkness. It takes a gutsy attorney, private investigation, a psychologist-priest, and a maze of courtroom drama to save her soul.

Despite the warnings of his father, the great white Unicorn, Blackie ventures from his secure refuge in the heart of the forest into the restless, striving world of humans. His travels take him from the peaceful Shrine at the top of the world to the burning dragon pit at its bottom. Blackie meets monsters and beasts and humans of every rank from beggars, gypsies, peasants, and priests to knights, nobles, and his irrepressible, irresistible Princess. He learns the joys of love, friendship, and a well-baked bowl of cookies, as well as the miseries of sickness, treachery, and death. Ultimately, he learns what it means to be unicorn, a "holy beast" to the humans with his celebrated horn of violence in battle and healing in sickness.
