The armies of the Outlanders crushed the highlanders at the battle of Colden Moor–killing their finest warriors and breaking their freeborn spirit. The highlanders are now a conquered people, ruled by the brutal Baron Gottasson. Prophecies speak of the coming of a new leader, a descendent of Ironhand, mightiest of the highland kings. A leader who will throw off the Outlander yoke. But only one highlander carries the blood of Ironhand: Sigarni, a wild and willful teenage girl who cares for nothing save her own concerns. Until a fateful encounter thrusts her onto a path of rebellion. Now, hunted by the baron’s soldiers and stalked by an evil sorcerer, Sigarni will be forced to fulfill her destiny . . . or perish.

In the latest In the Line of Duty series, Detectives Earl Solano and Paul Derek scramble to covertly help their friend Kevin Brooks investigate a thirty-year-old case when plans for a top secret military airplane resurface. Brooks, a CIA agent, begins the search upon receiving a request for help from his mother-in-law. Brooks’ mother-in-law is shocked to receive a telephone call from her husband, Ezekiel Dade, who asks to see the daughter he has never met. Now out of prison, Dade had been convicted for bank robbery thirty years earlier. Since Brooks’ mother-in-law had been questioned by police decades earlier about an alleged Swiss bank account belonging to her husband, she thought Dade must have committed the bank robbery he’d been accused of and would die in prison. Brooks wants to help his mother-in-law pave the way so she can introduce his wife to her father. Brooks’ wife does not know that her father is alive or that he had been in prison. As Solano and Derek surreptitiously help their friend investigate the old case, the bigger the mystery gets and the more dangerous it becomes. Both friends and enemies of Dade’s reemerge, all attempting to learn The Ezekiel Code.

This latest issue of Arthurian Literaturecontinues the tradition of the journal, combining critical studies with editions of primary Arthurian texts. Varied in their linguistic and chronological coverage, the articles dealwith major areas of Arthurian studies, from early French romance through late medieval English chronicle to contemporary fiction. Topics include Béroul's Tristan, Tristan de Nanteuil, the Anglo-Norman Brut, and the Morte, while an edition of the text of an extrait of Chrétien's Erec et Enide prepared by the eighteenth-century scholar La Curne de Sainte-Palaye offers important insights into both scholarship on Chretien, and our understanding of the Enlightenment. The volume is completed with an encyclopaedic treatment of Arthurian literature, art and film produced between 1995 and 1995, acting as an update to The New Arthurian Encyclopedia.Contributors: RICHARD ILLINGWORTH, JANE TAYLOR, CARLETON CARROLL, MARIA COLOMBO TIMELLI, RALUCA RADULESCU, JULIA MARVIN, NORRIS LACY, RAYMOND THOMPSON.

“David Gemmell tells a tale of very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy.”—R. A. Salvatore, New York Times bestselling author Twenty years have passed since Jon Shannow, the legendary Jerusalem Man, cracked open the gate of time and brought the Deacon and his followers into the world. Twenty years during which Shannow was missing and the Deacon ruled from Unity, intent on building a new promised land . . . in his own image. But the Deacon’s Jerusalem Riders spread their own wave of terror, unleashing bigotry and death, massacring unbelievers and mutants in the name of peace. Until a lone reader appeared, bent on avenging the dead. Wounded, his memory shattered, Shannow combated evil and injustice the only way he knew—head-on, both guns blazing. But would that be enough to stop the mysterious Deacon and his mad crusade? Even if Shannow succeeded, he’d still face the satanic hordes of the Hellborn and their bloodthirsty lord, Sarento, the living embodiment of the stone of power known as the Bloodstone!

Once the mighty fortress had stood strong, defended by the mightiest of all Drenai heroes, Druss, the Legend. But now a tyrannical, mad emperor had seized control of the fortress, and his twisted will was carried throughout the land by the Joinings --- abominations that were half-man, half-beast. Tenaka Khan was a half-breed himself, hated by the Drenai for his Nadir blood and despised by the Nadir for his Drenai ancestry. But he alone had a plan to destroy the emperor. The last heroes of the Drenai joined with him in a desperate gamble to bring down the emperor -- even at the cost of their own destruction.
