The Shadowhand Covenant

by Brian Farrey

With more twists and turns than a palace vault and one unforgettable family of thieves, this second book in Brian Farreys epic Vengekeep trilogy will leave you breathless. The Vengekeep Prophecies was termed a "rich fantasy" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) featuring a family of thieves that "couldnt be more likable" (Kirkus Reviews). Now, in this exciting sequel, Jaxter Grimjinx is back. Trouble is brewing in the Five Provinces. Mysterious magical artifacts have gone missing from the royal vaults. Master thieves from a secret society known as the Shadowhands are disappearing. And without explanation, the High Laird has begun imprisoning the peaceful Sarosan people. Jaxter Grimjinx suspects all these things are connected, but after the tapestry fiasco that nearly destroyed Vengekeep, he knows better than to get involved. Then he and his parents receive a summons from the Shadowhands--a summons that they would be foolish to ignore--and Jaxter is thrust into the heart of the conspiracy. With the help of a few new friends and an old friend he would rather forget, Jaxter will have to delve deep into some long-buried and dangerous secrets.

The cruel and powerful southern ruler known as the Autarch of Xis wants the power of the gods for his own, a power he can only gain if he conquers Southmarch. And nobody knows what the Qar want, only that the mysterious fairy folk are prepared to die for it--or to kill every living thing in South- march Castle and in all the lands that surround it. All will come to an apocalyptic conclusion on Midsummer Night, when the spirits of the haunted past and the desperate struggles of the present come together in one great final battle. Many will die. Many more will be transformed beyond recognition, and the world will be forever changed."

Shadowplay

by Clare Asquith

Living at a time and in a place of major political upheaval and considerable state authoritarianism, William Shakespeare wrote plays of universalist themes that avoided commentary on contemporary political events. At least that's the conventional view, but this book overturns this view with the argument that Shakespeare, similarly to dissident writers throughout history, coded his plays with language and references that subtly criticized British Monarchy and allegorically argued for political change, while simultaneously walking a fine line risking political persecution.

Shadows

by Edna Buchanan

"The wide front door hung open, a seductive invitation to a dark interior veiled by dust motes that glittered in the spectral greenish glow. . . "The Shadows is a historic 1920s house that inspires preservationists' dreams -- and developers' schemes. Built during Prohibition by a notorious rumrummer who vanished at sea, it was inherited by his son, a local athlete and war hero who lived down his father's wild reputation. He served a successful term as Miami mayor and raised his four young children at the Shadows -- until a shotgun ambush on a hot summer night forty-four years ago. His murder was never solved. Since then, only secrets and whispers have inhabited the Shadows. Now, a resourceful young preservationist approaches the Miami Police Department's Cold Case Squad to help block a developer's plan to bulldoze the Shadows and build high-rise towers. The detectives visit the long-abandoned pioneer house, now surrounded by a wild and overgrown subtropical forest. They discover the rumrunner's secret limestone cellar, a tunnel to Biscayne Bay, and seven small, heartbreaking new mysteries -- a lost generation. Cold Case Squad Lt. K. C. Riley and her detectives seek out the murdered man's widow and children for answers. All are evasive and paranoid, haunted by lies, guilt, and tangled pasts that each recalls differently. Ultimately the squad finds that the killer is still out there, and the old, cold case is hotter than ever. In another dazzling example of Edna Buchanan's masterful weaving of stories and histories, Cold Case Squad Detective Sam Stone uncovers a still violent and long-hidden connection between his parents' murders when he was a child and their summer as civil rights workers in Mississippi more than thirty years ago. "Life would be simple," Buchanan writes, "if people told the truth. " But for those who live among the shadows, the truth is never simple. Shadows is Edna Buchanan's most suspenseful novel.
