This novel of historical fiction and spiritual fantasy brings to life the words of Genesis 12, as Abraham, the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, begins the journey that will change the world.

More than 4,000 years ago God commanded Abraham to leave his father’s house and travel to a promised land far to the west. But no journey across the ancient world is safe. Taking his nephew, Lot, and all their servants and soldiers, Abraham must face the forces of nature, men and darkness if he is to reach his promised land.

Abraham is not alone; God has assigned a guardian angel to accompany him on his journey. His angel must battle demons and minions as he makes a safe path for Abraham to tread.

Violet by Scott Thomas

Enter for a chance to win 1 of 50 finished copies of Stoker-nominee Scott Thomas's second novel, Violet.

Booklist has given Violet a starred review, praising that "Thomas is a horror novelist who will be camping out on your shelves for years to come."

Publishers Weekly calls Violet "A gruesome, ghostly, yet moving tale of love, loss, and the endless power of memory."

And Bird Box author Josh Malerman deems Violet: "A master class in immersion."

What's Violet about, you ask?

For ten-year-old Kris Barlow, the summer of 1988 was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother. Three decades later, loss returns, her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake where she said goodbye to her mother. But a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown—and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return.

Scott's first book, Kill Creek, was praised by Kaly Soto of the New York Times as so scary she "Only dared to read it in the daylight." Alex McLevy of The A.V. Club called it "Stephen King-esque storytelling," and it was selected by the American Library Association's reader committee as the horror book of 2017. Kill Creek is now in development for television at Showtime.

Good luck!

Little Gods by Meng Jin

Enter for your chance to win an Advance Reader's Edition of LITTLE GODS!

Combining the emotional resonance of Home Fire with the ambition and innovation of Asymmetry, LITTLE GODS is explores the complex web of grief, memory, time, physics, history, and selfhood in the immigrant experience, and the complicated bond between daughters and mothers.

On the night of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, a woman gives birth in a Beijing hospital alone. Thus begins the unraveling of Su Lan, a brilliant physicist who until this moment has successfully erased her past, fighting what she calls the mind’s arrow of time.

When Su Lan dies unexpectedly seventeen years later, it is her daughter Liya who inherits the silences and contradictions of her life. Liya, who grew up in America, takes her mother’s ashes to China—to her, an unknown country. In a territory inhabited by the ghosts of the living and the dead, Liya’s memories are joined by those of two others: Zhu Wen, the woman last to know Su Lan before she left China, and Yongzong, the father Liya has never known. In this way a portrait of Su Lan emerges: an ambitious scientist, an ambivalent mother, and a woman whose relationship to her own past shapes and ultimately unmakes Liya’s own sense of displacement.

The Velvet Rope Economy by Nelson D. Schwartz

*ADVANCED GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

“You’ll never look at boarding a plane—or privilege and polarization—the same way.”
—Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of The Power of Habit

A gripping investigation of how a virtual velvet rope divides Americans in every arena of life, creating a friction-free existence for those with money on one side and a Darwinian struggle for the middle class on the other side.

In nearly every realm of daily life—from health care to education, highways to home security—there is an invisible velvet rope that divides how Americans live. On one side of the rope, for a price, red tape is cut, lines are jumped, appointments are secured, and doors are opened. On the other side, middle- and working-class Americans fight to find an empty seat on the plane, a place in line with their kids at the amusement park, a college acceptance, or a hospital bed.

We are all aware of the gap between the rich and everyone else, but when we weren't looking, business innovators stepped in to exploit it, shifting services away from the masses and finding new ways to profit by serving the privileged. And as decision-makers and corporate leaders increasingly live on the friction-free side of the velvet rope, they are less inclined to change—or even notice—the obstacles everyone else must contend with. Schwartz's "must read" book takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of this new reality and shows the toll the velvet rope divide takes on society.

Dark Pattern by Andrew Mayne

Dr. Theo Cray is on the hunt for a killer nurse, and redemption, in a mind-bending psychological thriller by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Naturalist.

Dr. Theo Cray has a legendary mathematical knack for catching serial killers. Until his exposure to a mind-altering pathogen knocks him off his game. It has upended an investigation, destroyed his reputation, and left him to question his own sanity. One person still trusts him to finish the job. His former professor Amanda Paulson is helping point Cray down a logical path to his prey: a nomadic health-care worker whose murder spree stretches back decades and whose victims number in the hundreds.

Never more desperate to save innocent lives, and to save himself, Cray follows each new lead around the world. But with his own grip on reality slipping away, Cray knows that to follow the pattern of an elusive killer, he must also confront his own dark side. In those dangerous shadows, he can find what he’s hunting. For Cray, venturing into a world without reason is going to be the most frightening journey of his life.
