"An absolutely unstoppable love story in an unputdownable book. So many twists and surprises I could barely take a breath!" - Shelly Crane, New York Times Bestselling Author of Significance and Wide Awake "A true delight from start to finish! It is sure to leave you thirsting for more!" - Diane Alberts, USA Today Bestselling Author hr Charlotte Ruzikova is an ordinary girl, but in a world of magic and monsters, it's exactly what makes her an outcast. In occult Prague, Witches draw enchantment spells, Shifters throw tea parties, and markets glow like stardust as jack-o'-lanterns jeer from cobblestone paths. For humans on the mundane side of town, the occult city is a fairy tale for storybooks, but for Charlotte, it's home. When she catches the eye of an Elven prince and spurns his advances, Charlotte sparks a devastating war between the creatures of the light and those lurking in the darkness. Worst of all, she endangers the person she loves most: the man who brought her to the occult city. Joining forces with a coven of outcast monsters, Charlotte rebels against an empire to preserve the magic in her city and in her heart. But can her allies set aside their differences for the greater good? Loyalties are tested and grudges grow thorny roots, but no matter the cost, Charlotte will fight to save the shadows. In the occult city, the dawn cannot consume the night. Warning: Guillermo del Toro-style monsters with the heart of a Studio Ghibli film roam free in the streets of Occult Prague. Fans of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS and THE VAMPIRE CHRONICLES will be eager to visit. hr "I love a vampire that does what a vampire is supposed to do...I highly recommend this story as a must read! Goodbye Bella and Edward!"- I Heart YA Books "This was such a magical and beautifully written tale of love and found family. The plot had all the dynamic twists and turns to keep me enthralled to see what would happen next. I support any book that takes the "good versus evil" theme and flips it so the "evil" beings are misunderstood and hated by the "good" for being different. Also, I just really like vampires." - Verified Reviewer "Leighton had shown off her talents as a world builder, with an ability to create an atmosphere the reader can feel a part of. Her characters arrive on the scene fully fleshed out, each with their own quirks and backstory." - Steve Taintor, Vine Voice "Holy f***ing s***! This woman is an f***ing genius! I mean, seriously! I was hooked in from the very first word to the f***ing last! This book deserves 1,000s of stars because its just that f***ing epic. EPIC!!! That's the perfect word for this book." -Verified Reviewer

When a bringer of death… Awakened after millennia, dragon warrior Reaper is ready to fulfill his destiny…until he sees Greer. With one glimpse, everything Reaper has ever known throughout his very long life is irrevocably changed. Greer’s his mate, he feels it in his blood, in his soul—but convincing her is another matter. The dragon clan healer finds him obnoxious and annoying, but he knows a woman’s interest when he smells it. And Greer smells like one word: mine. Meets a giver of life… Greer has spent hundreds of years using her healing abilities for the good of others, making her the polar opposite of Reaper.

Fierce, protective, magnificent…mate-worthy. Except he’s hiding something from her. Something dark and devastating that could destroy their newly forged bond.

When Jon Fosse had his playwright début with And We Shall Never Part at the National Theatre in Bergen in 1994, he was already an established author of several novels, collections of poetry and children’s books. Since his breakthrough in 1996 with the world premiere of Someone Will Arrive at the Norwegian Theatre he has written over twenty more plays and has become the world’s most performed contemporary European playwright. Oberon Books publishes Nightsongs, The Girl on the Sofa and I Am the Wind, together with his other plays in five collections. Fosse was made a Chevalier of the Ordre national du Mérite of France in 2007 and received The International Ibsen Award in 2010. ‘Since the early 1990s, Jon Fosse’s plays have been produced in countless venues internationally, and have been translated into dozens of languages – winning awards, inspiring critical adulation, and intriguing and inspiring theatregoers throughout the world. Strangely, however, his work remains largely unknown to English-speaking audiences – an oversight that Leif Zern’s The Luminous Darkness will do much to redress. In twelve short chapters, the book explores Fosse’s career, offering a lucid and insightful argument that is enriched by Zern’s intimate knowledge of the plays in production. The result is an important and timely study of a playwright who demands and deserves our attention.’ - Patrick Lonergan, National University of Ireland Galway

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time • Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Introduction by Caryl Phillips Commentary by H. L. Mencken, E. M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Bertrand Russell, Lionel Trilling, Chinua Achebe, and Philip Gourevitch Originally published in 1902, Heart of Darkness remains one of this century’s most enduring works of fiction. Written several years after Joseph Conrad’s grueling sojourn in the Belgian Congo, the novel is a complex meditation on colonialism, evil, and the thin line between civilization and barbarity. This edition contains selections from Conrad’s Congo Diary of 1890—the first notes, in effect, for the novel, which was composed at the end of that decade. Virginia Woolf wrote of Conrad: “His books are full of moments of vision. They light up a whole character in a flash. . . . He could not write badly, one feels, to save his life.”
