« Je te vois, Traquemort. Tu auras beau te débattre, la destinée te tient entre ses griffes. » Et cette destinée a fait d'Owen Traquemort un proscrit dans un empire interstellaire où règne la tyrannie, l'injustice et la corruption. Mais la rébellion s'est levée dont il est aujourd'hui la figure emblématique. Les forces de la révolution sont en marche. L'heure est venue de frapper. Et le chemin se dessine qui conduit de la planète rebelle de Brumonde à la capitale Golgotha, noyau de l'Empire, où se terre l'impératrice Lionnepierre au cœur de son palais souterrain. C'est un chemin de sang. Armes terrifiantes, pièges malicieux, trahisons et revirements, il ne sera rien épargné au Traquemort et ses compagnons pour aboutir à l'ultime affrontement contre la « Garce de fer ». Allumer le feu d'une révolte est une chose, gagner la guerre en est une autre. Voici la troisième époque de la geste Traquemort.
Enter a powerful realm of legend, dark sorcery, and conquest, where the mighty Drenai warrior Druss faces his most deadly opponent . . . Druss the Legend, the dark axman known as the Deathwalker, must join the warrior Talisman on a mission of blood and glory. Only the stolen Eyes of Alchazzar--mystic jewels of power--will save Druss's dying friend, then unite the Nadir tribes against the evil of the Gothir. Druss agrees to help look for the twin gems--hidden for centuries in the shrine of Oshikai, the Demon-bane, the Nadir's greatest hero. It has been prophesied that with the recovery of the stones, there will come the Uniter, a magnificent fighter who will free the Nadir from brutal oppression. But Garen-Tsen, the sadistic power behind the Gothir throne, also seeks the gems. To control them, he will send five thousand men against a handful of savages, Talisman, and the one Drenai warrior.

Captain John “Black Jack” Geary tries a desperate gamble to lead the Alliance Fleet home through enemy-occupied space in this novel in the thrilling Lost Fleet series. Geary is convinced that the Syndics are planning to ambush the fleet and finish it off once and for all. Realizing the fleet’s best (and only) chance is to do the unexpected, Geary takes the offensive and orders the fleet to the Sancere system. There, a multitude of possible routes home give the Alliance fleet a better chance of avoiding their pursuers—and an attack on the Sancere shipbuilding facilities could decimate the Syndic war effort. Weary from endless combat, the officers and crew of the Alliance fleet can’t see the sense in charging deeper into enemy territory—prompting a mutiny that divides them, and leaving Geary with the odds higher against him than ever before...
Torch of Freedom
Author: David Weber, Eric Flint
Publisher: Baen Publishing Enterprises
Someone is assassinating the leaders of both the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the recently liberated former slave planet of Torch. Though most believe the Republic of Haven is behind the murders, Anton Zilwicki and Havenite secret agent Victor Cachat believe there is another sinister player behind the scenes. Queen Berry of Torch narrowly escaped one assassination attempt, and a security officer from Beowulf has been assigned to protect her, a task complicated by the young monarch's resentment of bodyguards, and the officer's growing attachment to her. Meanwhile, powerful forces in the Solarian League are maneuvering against each other to gain the upper hand, not realizing or, perhaps, not caring that their power struggle is threatening the League's very existence and could plunge the galaxy into war. Once again New York Times best-selling authors David Weber and Eric Flint join forces in an exciting new novel in the Honorverse. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
A peaceful integration of the Cluster with the Star Kingdom turns violent when corrupt Solarian League bureaucrats attempt to prevent the annexation, with only Honor Harrington's newly graduated midshipmen in their way.

In the future, the UN has brought back an ancient way to keep the peace. The children of world leaders are held hostage—if a war begins, they pay with their lives. Greta is the Crown Princess of the Pan Polar Confederacy, a superpower formed of modern-day Canada. She is also a Child of Peace, a hostage held by the de facto ruler of the world, the great Artificial Intelligence, Talis. The hostages are Talis’s strategy to keep the peace: if her country enters a war, Greta dies. The system has worked for centuries. Parents don’t want to see their children murdered. Greta will be free if she can make it to her eighteenth birthday. Until then she is prepared to die with dignity, if necessary. But everything changes when Elian arrives at the Precepture. He’s a hostage from a new American alliance, and he defies the machines that control every part of their lives—and is severely punished for it. Greta is furious that Elian has disrupted their quiet, structured world. But slowly, his rebellion opens her eyes to the brutality of the rules they live under, and to the subtle resistance of her companions. And Greta discovers her own quiet power. Then Elian’s country declares war on Greta’s and invades the prefecture, taking the hostages hostage. Now the great Talis is furious, and coming himself to mete out punishment. Which surely means that Greta and Elian will be killed...unless Greta can think of a way to save them.

The fifth book in the Megan Lindholm (Robin Hobb) backlist.
John Taylor is a private detective. At least that's what his business card says, and it isn't completely untrue: Taylor is a private eye - or rather, he has a 'private eye', a supernatural ability to find anything that is lost. As a child of the Nightside, it's an ability he was born with. But it's been a long time since Taylor left the Nightside - that hidden netherworld in the middle of London where it is perpetually 3 a.m., where fantasy and reality co-exist - and he has no intention of returning. Then Joanna Barrett arrives at his office; her teenage daughter is missing and she is offering a small fortune to find her. Yet it's not just the money that persuades Taylor to take on the job, for he knows exactly where the girl has gone... The Nightside. And to save her, Taylor must do what he vowed he never would, and once again descend into the hellish depths of his home.
