How far would you go for the person you love?

It’s 2218 AD and life is good. Zee McAdams is in her second year as a healing empath when the thing she swore would never happen to her happens. A young man shows up in her ER room and pierces her hard-won calm. He is, after all, an alien - floaters, as the slang goes, the universal bottom of the barrel. The more time Zee spends with David the more she likes him, and the more questions she has. Before these questions are answered, Zee and David will acknowledge their love, lose each other, and risk their lives to be together. When David finally reveals the truth - that he’s a time traveller sent to harvest treasures soon be destroyed by a meteor that leaves Earth in ruins - Zee faces an even harsher set of questions.

Will she betray David to warn her friends and family? Or will she follow him to a future a thousand years away? A future that has no place for her and from which she can never return.

When news of a death in the family reaches her from abroad, Beth Lowe realises that she can no longer avoid her past.  She is sent a scrap book of photographs and mementos made by her mother, a poignant record of the seven childhood summers she spent in rural Hungary.  It was a time when she trod the tightrope between separated parents and two distinct countries; a bewitching but imperfect Hungarian mother and a gentle, reticent English father; the dazzling house of a Hungarian artist and an empty-feeling cottage in deepest Devon. Years later, the memories of her Hungarian summers continue to haunt Beth and entice her, no matter how hard she tries to run away from them. The arrival of The Book of Summers brings a past Beth hasn’t yet made peace with rushing back into her present.

The Book Of Summers is about the lies we tell, the truths we keep and, above all, the ways we find to keep on loving one another.

 THE GODS OF GOTHAM

1845. New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland. These two seemingly disparate events will change New York City. Forever.

Timothy Wilde tends bar near the Exchange, saving every dollar and shilling in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams. But when his dreams literally incinerate in a fire devastating downtown Manhattan, he finds himself disfigured, unemployed, and homeless. His older brother obtains Timothy a job in the newly minted NYPD, but he is highly skeptical of this untested "police force." And he is less than thrilled that his new beat is the notoriously down-and-out Sixth Ward-at the border of Five Points, the world's most notorious slum.

One night while returning from his rounds, heartsick and defeated, Timothy runs into a little slip of a girl—a girl not more than ten years old—dashing through the dark in her nightshift . . . covered head to toe in blood. He takes her home, where she spins wild stories, claiming that dozens of bodies are buried in the forest north of 23rd Street. Timothy isn't sure whether to believe her or not, but, as the truth unfolds, the reluctant copper star finds himself engaged in a battle for justice that nearly costs him his brother, his romantic obsession, and his own life.

Original German title: Vom Liebesleben der Mondvögel

Max is fifteen, lives with his father on Lake Starnberg, and is far more interested in butterflies and beetles than in girls.

At the beginning of the summer holidays, his life becomes more than he can handle. Since his mother disappeared, nothing has been the same for Max. He buries himself in his book, Wonderful Insects, or retreats to the ‘Island of the Blessed’ in the lake. But at the beginning of the summer holidays, urgent problems force him to face up to life. His best friend wants to win the favour of the class beauty and makes Max the accomplice of a crazy plan. Most of all, Max is worried about his architect father, who has recently been painting over his wife’s artworks in fits of mania.

There’s nothing for it – if he is to find peace again, Max is going to have to disturb a closely guarded family taboo.
