As we get closer to the holiday season what better way is there than to spend the evenings curled up with a book? Here are some great books at amazingly low prices that you should add to your reading list!
In a not too distant future, a nuclear war has decimated mankind. Three centuries later, survivors live barricaded in cities controlled by the Human Empire, while the inhabitants of the countryside have been mutated by radiation and live in the forests surrounding urban settlements, waging war on the humans.
When both her parents die in a fire, Julia is left to cope alone with a highly bureaucratic and regulated system, with very few select allies. As her loyalty undergoes increasingly harsh tests, Julia draws attention to herself with her cold blood and fierce resolve in battle.
The Apprenticeship of Nigel Blackthorn
Nigel must choose between entering an orphanage or entering an apprenticeship on a mule train.
The APPRENTICESHIP OF NIGEL BLACKTHORN is a coming-of-age story set in the American West of 1853. The story relates the adventures of a thirteen-year-old English boy whose missionary parents came to convert the wild heathens to the way of Christ.
Comanches slaughter Reverend John Blackthorn and his family before he preaches one word. Nigel survives by following his mother’s instructions to hide in a hollow tree. Pascal LeBrun, a roaming muleteer, rides to the smoke of the burning wagons to find Nigel, the lone survivor.
There Be Demons
Demons, seeking a warmer place to hatch their young, have overrun the city of Trebridge. Gillen, the leader of the Gargoyle Guardians, asks his Angeli commanders for reinforcements. They send four untrained teens led by Britt Kelly, a newcomer to the projects whose life is in shambles after her parents’ divorce.
Not only does Britt have to cope with a new high school and her family duties, but she also has to absorb the fact that demons truly exist. When Britt and Gillen link up, the fight is on between the gargoyles and teens as well as the demons vs. gargoyles plus teens.
The Beat on Ruby’s Street
The last thing eleven-year-old Ruby Tabeata expected to happen on her way to a Jack Kerouac reading was to be hauled to the police station.
It’s 1958 and Ruby is the opposite of a 1950s stereotype: fierce, funny and strong willed, she is only just starting to chart her course in a family of Beat Generation artists in Greenwich Village. Ruby dreams of meeting famous poets while becoming one herself; instead, she’s accused of trying to steal fruit from a local vendor and is forced to live in a children’s home.
As Ruby struggles to return to family and friends, she learns her only choice is to follow her heart.
