“Discover the epic, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast from Brigid Kemmerer: the first in the spellbinding Cursebreakers series.

‘Everything you’d want in a retelling of a classic fairy tale’ JODI PICOULT
‘Absolutely spellbinding’ STEPHANIE GARBER

Fall in love, break the curse.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.

Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall, is cursed. Forced to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he can only be freed by love. But at the end of each autumn he is transformed into a beast hell-bent on destruction, and after so many failed attempts, his kingdom and its people are barely holding on.

Harper’s life has never been easy, but she’s learned to be tough enough to survive. She won’t let anything hold her back, not her cerebral palsy or her mother’s deteriorating health. But when she is sucked into Rhen’s world, nothing is as it seems. Powerful forces are standing against Emberfalll … and it will take more than a broken curse to save it from utter ruin.

The thrilling Cursebreakers series continues in A Heart So Fierce and Broken and A Vow So Bold and Deadly.

Don’t miss Brigid Kemmerer’s next blockbuster fantasy series, Defy the Night, coming this autumn.”

Piranesi

Highlights:

“A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE KITSCHIES RED TENTACLE AWARD

The spectacular new novel from the bestselling author of JONATHAN STRANGE & MR NORRELL, ‘one of our greatest living authors’ New York Magazine

Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has.

In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone.

Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims?

Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous.

The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite.”

The Cherry Orchard

Highlights:
Written in 1903 , “The Cherry Orchard” was Anton Chekhov’s final play, widely regarded as one of his greatest dramatic accomplishments. it is a story set during the decline of the aristocracy and the rise of an emergent middle class in Russian society at the turn of the 20th Century. Madame Ranevsky and her daughters have returned to their family estate, including its famous cherry orchard, to oversee the auction of the estate in order to pay the mortgage. Madame Ranevsky is paralyzed by the thought of losing the sentimental cherry orchard and all that the loss of the family estate represents and has no grasp of the financial and legal issues she faces. rather than see her family’s property divided and sold off so that she can keep a small piece of it, it is instead sold to the son of a former serf. Ultimately the now destitute family leaves to the sound of the beloved orchard being chopped down, the symbolic and metaphoric end to an era. The vast social and financial upheaval at the end of the 20th century in Russia, which ultimately led to the Socialistic Revolution, is excellently portrayed in Chekhov’s  “The Cherry Orchard.” In turns melancholy and comedic, this timeless dramatic masterpiece continues to move audiences to this day. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and follows the translation of Julius West.

In this house, full of energy and laughter, she discovers life and love – and a terrible, bruising secret deep within her family.

Full of tragedy and comedy in equal measure, David Copperfield remains one of the most enduring and popular of Dickens’ novels.
