Burning Girl, The

By Phillips, Holly

Prime Books, 2006. Canadian Phillips's challenging first novel, a dense literary fantasy, requires two readings--first to appreciate the sensuous prose, second to get some idea of the plot. On release from the hospital, Ryder "Rye" Coleman has inexplicable cuts and scars all over her body that sometimes open when she feels feverish, making her bleed. She also suffers from synesthesia and amnesia. When Rye follows a man home after he saves her life in an alley, he provides her with a fantastic explanation for all the strangeness: a refugee from another world persuaded the two of them to help foil a plot to conquer Earth, then betrayed them. Rye soon discovers that she has the unique power to travel from world to world, though she can't control it--and that makes her valuable to the people in the alley, who kidnap her and her savior, Bardo, an ex-cop with secrets of his own. Rye's fevered, synesthesiac dreams create an internal world as vivid as the book's external world, though it's often hard to tell them apart. Rye Coleman, 22, emerges from a hospital after seven weeks of fever and bleeding from lesions all over her skin with a six-year hole in her memory. Working a job distributing advertising fliers, she vaguely recognizes a man she follows home as the fever and bleeding return. He and Rye were involved with a so-called witch from another world, one of three linked by a gate that Rye somehow facilitates. War between two of the worlds could engulf the third, Earth, and who controls the gate affects all three. Phillips treats what may seem a rather routine sf/fantasy setup utterly originally, focusing on Rye's amnesiac, semidelirious perspective to the exclusion of other points of view that might explain what is going on and why. The stories in In the Palace of Repose (2005) were so understated, cool, and congenial that Phillips' violent, harsh, and febrile first novel comes as a shock, perhaps especially on the last page--unless, of course, you savor uncertainty, having your sense perceptions scrambled, and brutal disillusion. .

Shadowmancer

By Taylor, G. P

Puffin, 2005. Paperback book is in new, never been read condition. No dust jacket. Inside of book pages are crisp and clean. Pictorial cover. No creasing on binding edge. Minor shelf wear on edges of paperback cover. ISBN# 0142403415. 2005 edition. Publisher: Puffin. 288 pages long. Approx: 8 by 6 by 1. Additional pictures of condition are always available. Book Description: An apocalyptic battle between good and evil is vigorously, violently fought in British author G.P. Taylor's suspenseful, action-packed fantasy. The story, set in the 1700s on the Yorkshire coastline, revolves around Vicar Obadiah Demurral, a corrupt-but-inept, dead-conjuring "shadowmancer" who desires to control the universe by overthrowing God, or Riathamus. When two hard-luck near-orphans, (13-year-old Thomas Barrick, a bitter enemy of Demurral, and his troubled friend Kate Coglund) band together with a young African stranger named Raphah, they spend the rest of the book trying to stop the wicked Vicar as if their very souls are at stake...they are. Along the way, the three youths meet an enormous cast of friends and foes, some agents of Riathamus, others of Satan (Pyratheon), and some godless (but not for long) smugglers like Jacob Crane. Readers who love fanciful storybook characters will find mermaidlike Seloth, smelly hobs, leg-dragging servants, goodhearted whores, and benevolent boggles. Age-old superstitions abound, though old magic and witchcraft are clearly denounced here as the work of the devil. Indeed, the author, an English vicar himself, tells a very Christian story and his often deliciously dramatic adventure lapses into stiffly presented glowing-halo Touched by an Angel moments(readers will be lured into the Enchanted Forest, but tricked into Sunday school). Nonetheless, Shadowmancer, the first of a series, is a pageturner bursting with magic and myth, and will appeal to fantasy lovers who don't mind the Bible mixed in with their boggles..

BOOK DESCRIPTION: While recent tales of Pern have dealt with early eras on that turbulent planet, this one begins during the time of Dragonquest and continues beyond the closing of The White Dragon , focusing on some of the commoners, and how they cope with the return of the life-consuming Thread. A number of lives intertwine, such as that of the trader boy Jayge Lilcamp, whose family is almost destroyed when his father refuses to believe the first Thread warning. Jayge runs afoul of Thella, sister of the Telgar Hold lord but a malcontent and leader of renegades, when she tries to kidnap the refugee girl Aramina, who can hear all dragons. Meanwhile, in the South, the young harper Piemur finds his destiny, and Toric, the first Holder there, schemes for supremacy. McCaffrey paints her colorful world on a still larger canvas, maintaining the complex plots and strong characterization that permeate her work. A dangerous woman's desire for revenge and a young girl's talent for hearing dragons become the catalysts that challenge the old traditions of Weyr, Hold, and Hall that have long defined life on Pern. McCaffrey continues her popular series with a story of exploration and adventure that focuses on a younger generation of characters as they begin to discover pieces of their ancient past . Paperback.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: In 1883, Treasure Island established Robert Louis Steven's literary reputation and brought him instant fame. Its characters gained a permanent place in popular culture, especially the memorable one-legged racal Long John Silver and his parrot, Captain Flint, squawking, "Piece of Eight" Now Francis Bryan gives due homage to the immortal original with this thrilling sequel. It is then years since the Hispaniola sailed with its hoard of gold from Treasure Island. Now twenty-four, Jim Hawking is doing well asa boastful local hero. Life is comfortable, if not too exciting--until a beautiful young woman in distress appears. Smitten, Jim is soon led into some very rough waters. With no alternative, he returns to "that accursed island," where his comrades marooned three mutinous pirates a decade earlier, and learns the fate of Joseph Tait--the most murderous buccaneer of them all... Treasure Island, under the title The Sea Cook, was first published as a magazine scrial throughout the winter of 1881-82. When it appeared in book form in 1883, it established Stevenson's reputation. He had written it during a rainy holiday in Scotland, partly for the amusement of his American stepson, Lloyd Osbourne. His characters became instantly famous and passed forever into popular culture, especially Long John Silver with his wooden crutch, his greeting. "Jim, lad," and his parrot, Cap'n Flint, who cackled "pieces of eight!" Never out of print, Treasure Island sells thousands of copies worldwide every year. Among Stevenson's contemporaries it received wide acclaim for its memorable characterization, clear language, realistic atmosphere and rattling good narrative. The Curse of Treasure Island is the spellbinding sequel to the greatest adventure story ever written. At the End of Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson's gripping adventure story, the Hispaniola sailed away with "great heaps of coin ... bars of gold ... doubloons and double guineas." But some treasure had to be left behind -- as were three surviving pirates, deliberately marooned. Their leader, Long John Silver, had changed sides in time to save his skin, and on the voyage home to Bristol slipped ashore, helping himself to some of the hoard as he vanished. Jim Hawkins, the cabin-boy who narrated the story, returned to live in the English countryside near his friends Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, and grew up to become landlord of the family inn. He swore that "oxen and wain-ropes would not bring me back again to that accursed island." But one day, ten years after his return, a beautiful stranger and her young son come looking for Jim Hawkins, and he is led back to the South Seas, to even greater danger than before, to violence and a mystery ...This thrilling sequel to one of the greatest adventure stories ever told is written in the same spirit and with due homage to the wonderful original..

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Book 13 in the series. Printed in Germany. The classic adventure story of kidnap, shipwreck, murder and pursuit as young David Balfour tries to claim the inheritance he has been cheated out of. About Robert Louis Stevenson: Stevenson was born Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson, in Edinburgh, Scotland, on November 13, 1850; when he was around 18 years old he changed the spelling of 'Lewis' to 'Louis'. His father was Thomas Stevenson, and grandfather was Robert Stevenson, both distinguished lighthouse keepers and inventors, as was his great-grandfather. It was from this side of the family that he inherited his love of adventure, joy of the sea and for the open road. His maternal grandfather, Lewis Balfour, was a professor of moral philosophy and a minister, and it was in his house that he spent the greater part of his boyhood. "Now I often wonder", says Stevenson, "what I inherited from this old minister. I must suppose, indeed, that he was fond of preaching sermons, and so am I, though I never heard it maintained that either of us loved to hear them." From his mother, Margaret Balfour, he inherited weak lungs (perhaps tuberculosis), that kept him constantly in "the land of the counterpane" during the winter, where his nurse spent long hours by his bedside reading from the Bible, and lives of the old Covenanters. During the summer he was encouraged to play outside proving to be a wild and care-free child and by the age of eleven his health had improved so that his parents prepared him for the University of Edinburgh by attending Edinburgh Academy, planning for him to follow his father as a lighthouse keeper. During this period he read widely and enjoyed especially Shakespeare, Walter Scott, John Bunyan and The Arabian Nights. He entered the University of Edinburgh at age seventeen but soon discovered he had neither the scientific mind nor physical endurance to succeed as an engineer. When his father took him for a voyage he found - instead of being interested in lighthouse construction - that his mind was teeming with wonderful romances about the coast and islands which they visited. Although his father was stern, he finally allowed him to decide upon a career in literature.. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
