    Early Riser

    Fforde, Jasper

    "Imagine a world where all humans must hibernate through a brutally cold winter, their bodies dangerously close to death as they enter an ultra-low metabolic state of utterly dreamless sleep. All humans, that is, apart from the Winter Consuls, a group of officers who diligently watch over the vulnerable sleeping citizens. Charlie Worthing is a novice, chosen by a highflying hero Winter Consul to accompany him to the Douzey, a remote sector in the middle of Wales, to investigate a dream which is somehow spreading amongst those in the hibernational state, causing paranoia, hallucination and a psychotic episode that can end in murder. Worthing has been trained to deal with Tricksy Nightwalkers whose consciousness has been eroded by hibernation, leaving only one or two skills and an incredible hunger; he's been trained to stay alive through the bleakest and loneliest of winters - but he is in no way prepared for what awaits him in Sector Twelve. There are no heroes in Winter, Worthing has been told. And he's about to find out why."--Publisher's description.

    The Dead Zone: A Novel

    King, Stephen

    "When Johnny Smith was six years old, head trauma caused by a bad ice-skating accident left him with a nasty bruise on his forehead and, from time to time, those hunches, infrequent but accurate snippets of things to come. But it isn't until Johnny's a grown man--now having survived a horrifying auto injury that plunged him into a coma lasting four and a half years--that his special abilities really push to the fore. Johnny Smith has come back from the void with an extraordinary gift that becomes his life's curse, presenting visions of what was and what will be for the innocent and guilty alive. But when he encounters a ruthlessly ambitious and amoral man who promises a terrifying fate for all humanity, Johnny must find a way to prevent a harrowing predestination from becoming reality."--Back cover.

  • The Boarding House

    The Boarding House

    Paziński, Piotr

    Winner of the European Union Prize for Literature . In this debut novel by the Polish writer Piotr Pázinski, a young man takes a train to a small town outside of Warsaw to visit a boarding house populated by the last generation of Polish Holocaust survivors. When his grandmother was alive, he had spent a great deal of time at this boarding house, and now he returns, as if to get one last glimpse of the past--to look at old faces and think old thoughts. Pázinski's narrative is at once dreamlike and hard-nosed, and it is structured with the haunting simplicity of a fairy tale. The Boarding House is a meditation on the sad, sometimes terrifying moment when living memory becomes history and the living become the dead. (syndetics)

  • Ivan

    Ivan

    Rocha, Kit

    As the sheltered princess of Sector One, Maricela's life is defined by duty: to her people and to her family. Her wealth and influence have allowed her to build a better world, but they come with a price---the responsibility to secure political stability with a practical marriage. Maricela cherishes the idea of marrying for love, but there's not much romance in the endless line of suitors interested only in prestige and power. And her handsome, brooding new bodyguard isn't helping the situation. Ivan is the perfect, deadly warrior, a man trained from childhood to be the ultimate protector to the Rios family. His focus on keeping her safe is intense--and a little intoxicating. When the threat of danger cracks his icy control, Maricela realizes she's not the only one fighting against temptation. Ivan knows that the blood on his hands makes him unworthy of the pure-hearted princess. But from the first kiss, their forbidden affair feels inevitable. He can give her a glimpse of life outside her gilded cage and a lover who wants the woman instead of the crown. The only thing he can never do is promise her forever. Because spurning her noble suitors to marry her bodyguard wouldn's just be a scandal. It could set off a political firestorm that would tear Sector One apart. (2/16/2019 6:53:40 PM)
