Three fantastic new additions to our collection!
An Everneath Novel
Ashton’s stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy picks up two weeks after the events of Everbound (2013). Even though she is now an Everliving, Nikki is adamant that she would rather die than live at the expense of human forfeits. Terrified for Nikki's survival, Jack, her ever-loyal boyfriend, begins a desperate attempt to reverse the process through any means possible. They form an unlikely alliance with Cole and together travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki's fate and make her mortal once more. But the Queen has not forgotten Nikki's treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good.
In the chilling sequel to Revolution 19 (2012), fugitive siblings Nick, Kevin and Cass are struggling to survive in a world where deadly, sophisticated robots have turned on their creators and enslaved mankind. When they are attacked by bot foot soldiers, the siblings are separated and on their own for the first time. Cass is brought in for reprogramming by the bots; Nick joins up with rebel soldiers; and Kevin meets the man who is responsible for the robot technology. As the three fight to take down the bots, they must also prepare for a looming war that will decide the fate of the world forever.
Why We Took the Car
German novelist Herrndorf makes his American debut with this emotion-packed story of two social misfits who hit the Autobahn. Mike Klingenberg, 14, is from a dysfunctional family and is one of the few kids not invited to the birthday party thrown by Tatiana, his secret crush. When the new kid, class reject Tschick arrives at Mike's house in a stolen car, the two hatch a plan to hit the road. With no parents, cell phones, or destination in mind, they drive all over Germany meeting crazy characters along the way. Will they ever be called boring again? Not a chance!
