Compelling and addictive really don’t do The Hunt by Tim Lebbon justice and while the subject matter of the book, humans hunting other humans for sport, is pretty distasteful I challenge anyone to not romp through the book desperate to find out more. Chris returns from a morning run to find his house empty apart from a stranger saying he has 50 minutes to get ready. Friends won’t answer the phone and after dialing 9...9... he is confronted with a video link of his wife and daughters being held hostage. He's told to run. If he's caught and killed, his family go free. If he escapes, they die. Then he meets Rose who is the only person to escape the hunt … but she has paid a terrible price. Breathlessly exciting and over too quickly!
The third original novel tying into the critically acclaimed and much-missed Firefly series from creator Joss Whedon. Captain Malcolm Reynolds ends a game of cards on one of the Outer Rim moons as the lucky winner of an old map. Ancient and written in impenetrable symbols, the former owner insists it's worthless. Yet back on Serenity, River Tam is able to read it, and says that it points the way to one of the Arks, legendary generation ships that brought humans from Earth-that-was to the 'Verse. The salvage potential alone is staggering. But the crew approach the aged floating ship, they find it isn't quite as dead as it first seems, and the closer they get, the more agitated River becomes. She claims something is waiting on that ship, something powerful, and very angry...
A diseased town-long hidden beneath a lake-rises from the depths to become a focus of the war between humankind and the Kin. Beneath the surface of our world, mythological creatures and their artifacts still exist. As with a rhino horn, a tiger's bones, or a monkey's paw, corrupt people pay fortunes for a sliver of a satyr's hoof, a gryphon's claw, a basilisk's scale, or an angel's wing. These criminals also sell living supernatural creatures, whole or a piece at a time, to be harvested for their supernatural essence. Having become embroiled in the secret world of the Relics, creatures known as the Kin, Angela Gough is on the run in the United States. Forty years ago the town of Longford was the site of a deadly disease outbreak that wiped out the entire population. The infection was contained, the town isolated, and the valley in which it sits flooded and turned into a reservoir. The truth-that the outbreak was intentional, and not every resident of Longford died-disappeared beneath the waves. Now the town is revealed again. The Kin have an interest in the ruins, as do the fairy Grace and the Nephilim leader Mallian. The infection has risen from beneath silent waters, and this forgotten town becomes the focus of the looming battle between humankind and the Kin.

In the darkness of a underground cave system, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, there are voices, and they feed... Swarming from their prison, the creatures thrive and destroy. To scream, even to whisper, is to summon death. As the hordes lay waste to Europe, a girl watches to see if they will cross the sea. Deaf for many years, she knows how to live in silence; now, it is her family's only chance of survival. To leave their home, to shun others, to find a remote haven where they can sit out the plague. But will it ever end? And what kind of world will be left?
