Building a Timeless House in an Instant Age: Brent Hull
Summer House Party (Timeless Regency Collection, #4): Regina Scott, Donna Hatch, Sarah M. Eden
To be born a slave is a fact, not a fatality. And facts can be changed. In the country of Ossaniul, there is a fortress that is as disproportionate as it is inaccessible: the Highest House. Its masters, the noble family of Aldercrest, reign over a veritable army of slaves. At the bottom of the ladder, young Moth performs the most thankless tasks and has little hope of living past childhood. Until the day he meets Obsidian, a mysterious prisoner of the House who whispers to him in his sleep. If Moth does what he asks, Obsidian will give him fortune and glory. And there´s every indication that Obsidian can make good on his promises. Will Moth accept the offer? Through a subtle alternate history, The Highest House takes us to a fictional country reminiscent of the Balkan kingdoms of the 16th century. Mike Carrey and Peter Gross (Lucifer, The Unwritten) draw from this context a captivating fantasy narrative that reflects on the human soul, the corrupting power of slavery, and the inequalities of class, all from the different perspectives of the House´s many inhabitants. Both immediate and timeless, The Highest House is a multifaceted fantasy sure to stay with readers long after the final page has turned.

At long last, New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy´s most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do´Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills. Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan-the City of Spiders, the city of drow-nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house. Zaknafein. The greater nobles watched him, and one powerful Matron-Malice-decided to take him as her own. She connived with rival houses to secure her prize, but it was ultimately the roguish Jarlaxle who caught him. Thus sparked the birth of two key moments in Menzoberranzan: the coupling of a noble and weapon master that would produce Drizzt Do´Urden...and the friendship between Zaknafein and Jarlaxle. R. A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of this unlikely pair-offering a fresh take on the intrigue and opportunities to be found in the shadows, and providing a fascinating prelude to the journeys that have shaped the modern-day Forgotten Realms. There, Zaknafein and Drizzt are joined together in a series of trials that parallel those of centuries long past, even though their paths no longer seem to be aligned. How will a father, so long constrained by the vicious and conservative world of the drow, be able to reconcile his ingrained prejudices with the world and companions of his enlightened son? The answer lies in their desire for peace over chaos. And as long as the scourge of the goddess Lolth´s ambitions still remain, both are determined to keep her dark will at bay. But the Spider Queen is powerful, and now demons have been unleashed on the unwitting denizens of the surface world. United in purpose-and through their mutual friendship with Jarlaxle-Zaknafein and Drizzt will need to put aside their differences in order to keep the ones they love safe.
