Mirror Of Her Dreams

by Stephen R. Donaldson

With The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Stephen R. Donaldson changed the face of fantasy fiction forever. In The Mirror of Her Dreams, the astonishing first novel in the two-volume Mordant’s Need series, Donaldson shows us a world of wondrous beauty and seductive illusion, where mirrors hold the deadliest of magics and nothing is what it seems. . . .

The daughter of rich but neglectful parents, Terisa Morgan lives alone in a New York City apartment, a young woman who has grown to doubt her own existence. Surrounded by the flat reassurance of mirrors, she leads an unfulfilled life—until the night a strange man named Geraden comes crashing through one of her mirrors, on a quest to find a champion to save his kingdom of Mordant from a pervasive evil that threatens the land. Terisa is no champion. She wields neither magic nor power. And yet, much to her own surprise, when Geraden begs her to come back with him, she agrees.

Now, in a culture where women are little more than the playthings of powerful men, in a castle honeycombed with secret passages and clever traps, in a kingdom threatened from without and within by enemies able to appear and vanish out of thin air, Terisa must become more than the pale reflection of a person. For the way back to Earth is closed to her. And the enemies of Mordant will stop at nothing to see her dead.

Unlondon

by China Miéville

What is Un Lun Dun?

It is London through the looking glass, an urban Wonderland of strange delights where all the lost and broken things of London end up . . . and some of its lost and broken people, too–including Brokkenbroll, boss of the broken umbrellas; Obaday Fing, a tailor whose head is an enormous pin-cushion, and an empty milk carton called Curdle. Un Lun Dun is a place where words are alive, a jungle lurks behind the door of an ordinary house, carnivorous giraffes stalk the streets, and a dark cloud dreams of burning the world. It is a city awaiting its hero, whose coming was prophesied long ago, set down for all time in the pages of a talking book.

When twelve-year-old Zanna and her friend Deeba find a secret entrance leading out of London and into this strange city, it seems that the ancient prophecy is coming true at last. But then things begin to go shockingly wrong.


From the Hardcover edition.

The Heart Of Hannen

by Fawn Bonning

An epic tale of dark fantasy, erotic romance, and horror.

*Awarded Runner-Up in Romance - 2014 New York Book Festival
*Awarded Runner-Up in Romance - 2017 Los Angeles Book Festival                 

Christine's life has gone horribly awry. She is miserable in her small town where she feels destined to live her life as an outcast.

She has no idea that her true destiny lies in a different town . . . and in a different world, a most brutal world called Atriia. It is there she will learn the true meaning of misery.

And in the arms of a most unlikely candidate, she will also learn the true meaning of love.

He is Hannen Fallier, the one they call the foul fraigen dropper, revered by men for his fearless feats, yet looked upon by women with open disdain. With a face horribly mauled, he hides behind a mask of shame, deeming himself unworthy of love.

That he would seek acceptance from Christine is irony in its purest form. That he would seek her love . . . the ultimate betrayal.

**Mature subject matter.
**Warning - The Heart of Hannen is not for the faint of heart. If you do decide to brave your way within, you will need the aid of the dictionary located at the back of the book.
The Atriian language is primarily English and fairly simple, but may to a challenge to some.
