In dem von Aufständen erschütterten Königreich Ludania bestimmt die Zugehörigkeit zu einer Klasse, welche Sprache du sprichst - oder verstehst. Wenn du vergisst, wo dein Platz ist, kennen die Gesetze der Königin keine Gnade. Allein auf den Blickkontakt mit gesellschaftlich Höhergestellten steht der Tod. Die siebzehnjährige Charlaina - kurz Charlie - versteht alle Sprachen, jeden Dialekt. Eine gefährliche Fähigkeit, die sie schon ihr ganzes Leben lang verstecken muss. Nur in den illegalen Clubs im Untergrund der Stadt kann sie das für kurze Zeit vergessen. Dort trifft sie den geheimnisvollen Max, der eine Sprache spricht, die Charlie noch nie gehört hat, und der beinahe ihr Geheimnis entdeckt. Und als die Rebellen die Stadt schließlich überrennen, ist er es, der erkennt, dass Charlie der Schlüssel für ihren Sieg sein könnte. Doch für wen wird Max sich entscheiden, für das Mädchen, das ihn fasziniert, oder für seine Königin?

From Brittany’s misty shores to the decadent splendor of Paris’s royal court, one woman must fulfill her destiny–while facing the treacherous designs of Catherine de Medici, the dark queen. She is Ariane, the Lady of Faire Isle, one of the Cheney sisters, renowned for their mystical skills and for keeping the isle secure and prosperous. But this is a time when women of ability are deemed sorceresses, when Renaissance France is torn by ruthless political intrigues, and all are held in thrall to the sinister ambitions of Queen Catherine de Medici. Then a wounded stranger arrives on Faire Isle, bearing a secret the Dark Queen will do everything in her power to possess. The only person Ariane can turn to is the comte de Renard, a nobleman with fiery determination and a past as mysterious as his own unusual gifts. Riveting, vibrant, and breathtaking, The Dark Queen follows Ariane and Renard as they risk everything to prevent the fulfillment of a dreadful prophecy–even if they must tempt fate and their own passions.

The Second Book of The Last War of Gods and Men In an ancient world of gods and heroes, the threat of war is rising… From the city of Trachis, near the pass of Thermopylae, three kings set sail for the holy island of Asteria and the gathering of kings called by the twin temples of Apollo and Artemis, intent on foiling the plans of Atreus, king of Mycenae, who seeks dominion over all the cities and kingdoms of the Aegean sea. To the north, in the shadow of Mount Olympus, the hero Heracles looks to free the besieged city of Elone, joining forces with the Centaurs to wage war against the combined armies of Lapith and Dryopes warriors, who under the command of the Strategos Coronus have been ordered to destroy the city of the Hellenes. While Hera, the outcast Queen of the Gods, strives to raise a new god to cast aside the old, and will sacrifice the immortals of Pelasgia to achieve her goal. Yet all the while the question remains, where are the other Olympians? Against a backdrop of war and betrayal, a young man will struggle to understand the power of the gods, and his role in the struggle to come. And if they are not careful, the Dark Queen will sacrifice all to chaos.

They took Nadya. How is this possible? I was right there, and I couldn't do anything. I can still hear her voice ringing in my ears as she called out my name. Derek, it echoes over and over, pleading for me to find her. I will get her back-no matter the cost. With a reluctant alliance formed between myself, a furious Zander, a cocky William, and a snarky Victoria, we venture once more into enemy territory. None of us assume that getting Nadya back is going to be in any way easy-that's why Tommy and the cavalry are a few days behind us-but what we don't expect is to find a brainwashed Nadya transformed into a relentless Dark Queen. Wanting us out of the way so she can carry out her nefarious plans to claim Terra Pacieme for the Dark King, she forces us through a portal. Now trapped in the Earth Dimension, we race against the clock to find a way back home to not only save the kingdom, but the Dark Queen who is trying to destroy it.
