All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra—if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks! CAST IN SHADOW Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade. Since then, she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. But a dark and familiar case from her past reemerges, and Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers—powers that no other human has. CAST IN COURTLIGHT In Elantra, a job well done is rewarded with a more dangerous task. And so, after defeating a dark evil, Private Kaylin Neya is summoned to the Barrani High Court, where a misspoken word brings sure death. But the High Lord's heir is suspiciously ill, and Kaylin's healing magic is the only shot at saving him—if she manages to dodge the traps laid for her.

Book excerpt: A thrilling new grimdark fantasy for fans of Joe Abercrombie, Scott Lynch, and Peter V. Brett. Curtis Vance doesn't believe in magic. Magic doesn't put food in his belly, neither does it put a roof over his head. But thieving does. And he's good at it. The best, if his reputation is to be believed. Until a self-proclaimed sorceress comes looking for a thief. She's dressed like the night, speaks of monsters and myths, and she'll stop at nothing to get what she wants: a legendary Dragon Eye gem, said to grant its wielder the power to move continents. The sorceress is clearly insane, but Curtis hasn't met a challenge he can't overcome - or steal from - and the Dragon Eye gem proves too much of a temptation. All he has to do is survive her. He didn’t expect her stories of magic and monsters to be true. He didn’t expect to fall for her in ways that terrify him. But most of all, he didn’t expect to find himself trapped between the devastating power of a forgotten relic and his duty to save a people who would see him burned alive for his crimes. Curtis Vance doesn't believe in magic. But it believes in him, and if he can't stop it, his world will burn. DragonCon 2017 finalist for Best Fantasy Novel

Rating Book: 4.1/5 (819 users)

Download or read book Imagining Urban Futures written by Carl Abbott and published by Wesleyan University Press. This book was released on 2016-09-13 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Carl Abbott, who has taught urban studies and urban planning in five decades, brings together urban studies and literary studies to examine how fictional cities in work by authors as different as E. M. Forster, Isaac Asimov, Kim Stanley Robinson, and China Miéville might help us to envision an urban future that is viable and resilient. Imagining Urban Futures is a remarkable treatise on what is best and strongest in urban theory and practice today, as refracted and intensely imagined in science fiction. As the human population grows, we can envision an increasingly urban society. Shifting weather patterns, rising sea levels, reduced access to resources, and a host of other issues will radically impact urban environments, while technology holds out the dream of cities beyond Earth. Abbott delivers a compelling critical discussion of science fiction cities found in literary works, television programs, and films of many eras from Metropolis to Blade Runner and Soylent Green to The Hunger Games, among many others.
