Gears, Pax and TL were soldiers in the U.S. army when the world was destroyed by a virus that turned most people into hunters. Hunters were fierce killers of all life, smart and hard to kill. The Devil took advantage of man's vulnerability and tried to take control of what little was left. Our soldiers found a woman they named Ip who could kill hunters with a touch, and through her they learned they were more than mere men. As the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, they led man in a fight for their right to rule that man deserved another chance to live. When the Devil was defeated, Eden was restored on earth and peace reigned. Hidden Evil It's been five years since they put the Devil in his place, but all is not well in Eden and our Horsemen have dug their way out of their graves. It seems the Devil wasn't done and neither were they. Gears must uncover his new mission, and he believes he needs another army to defend his right to rule. America is at war with itself and he needs to know why. Dead Alive The hunters have returned, but they're not the same as they were. Gears, Pax and TL decide they need to look for the problem in Eden and uncover more than they ever expected. Ruler is playing them all for fools, and Gears finds a unique solution to save America. Divine Death Fed up with man's cruelty, Pax demands they rule again, leaving Ip out in the cold. When the young Horsemen argue the toss, Gears, Pax and TL must go through the doorway to Heaven to find Ip, concluding their epic fight with Ruler. Finally understanding why the hunters were needed, they learn their true role in the universe. This story is the second part of of The Hunter Wars series and follows directly on from part one, Hunter Wars.

The Lost Frontier

Reading Annie Proulx's Wyoming Stories

The Lost Frontier

The success of The Shipping News and the film of Brokeback Mountain brought Proulx international recognition, but their success merely confirms what literary critics have known for some time: Proulx is one of the most provocative and stylistically innovative writers in America today. She is at her best in the short story format, and the best of these are to be found in her Wyoming trilogy, in which she turns her eye on America's West-both past and present. Yet despite the vast amount of print expended reviewing her books, there has been nothing published on the Wyoming Stories. There is appetite for such a work; the plethora of critical work on McCarthy's Border Trilogy indicates that the reinvention of the West is a subject for serious academic study. Annie Proulx's Wyoming Stories fills this critical void by offering a detailed examination of the key stories in the trilogy: Close Range (1999) , Bad Dirt (2004), Fine Just the Way it Is (2008). The chapters are arranged according to western archetypes-the Pioneer, Rancher, Cowboy, Indian, and, arguably, the most important character of them all in Proulx's fiction: Landscape. Annie Proulx's Wyoming Stories offers students a clear sense of the novelist's early life and work, stylistic influences and the characteristics of her fiction and an understanding of where the Wyoming Stories, and Annie Proulx's work as a whole, fits into traditional and contemporary writing about the American West.

Darkness Rising Trilogy, 3-book bundle

Kelley Armstrong's New York Times bestselling Darkness Rising trilogy is collected here for the first time! The Gathering: Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home--and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret, and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy--her paw-print birthmark. The Calling: Now Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Then they're kidnapped, and after a chilling helicopter crash, they find themselves in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home. The Rising: All Maya and her friends have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they're so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control. But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And like it or not, she'll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life.
