The Bog Monster Of Booker Creek. "In an extended letter to his son ten years in the future, John Densch chronicles how he and his family slid into a media circus, one in which a middle-school science project became a national joke. With the unexplained disappearance of a local girl, the joke takes an ominous turn. John finds himself in a cauldron of competing world-views, from the paranormal to the ultra-rational to the paranoid. As he waits for life to return to normal, he becomes more and more absorbed by the stories he tells himself, and realizes that he must finally acknowledge the tale that defines his life." -- Bog Monster website.

Fire. It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her. Exquisitely romantic, this companion to the highly praised Graceling has an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books. You don't need to have read Graceling to love Fire. But if you haven't, you'll be dying to read it next. This edition includes an article by and an interview with Kristin Cashore, as well as a sneak peek at her next book, Bitterblue!

Mr Monster. I killed a demon. I don't know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped. Well, it stopped for a while. In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon---the terrifying persona he calls "Mr. Monster"---might now be using him. No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape. In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

My Fair Monster. Just when I think things will finally get back to normal… Stop laughing! I really did think that. Thanks to a large dose of electricity, I’m shocking the crap out of everyone and everything, my cat runs from me, and my friends take bets on who can withstand the shocks when I touch them. To make matters worse, I’m stuck working a booth at a local Ren Fair with the Dungeons and Dragons crowd. But this year, someone is killing off the LARPers—and no magic spell or roll of the dice can bring them back. So here I am, in hundred-degree heat—in a costume that shows a lot more of me than anyone should see—with electricity I can’t control running through my body. All that and trying to wrangle in the ghosts of the victims—not my idea of a good time. And when my boyfriend and I are caught in the Dungeon Master’s maze, playing a deadly game may be the only way out. ~Andromeda Spencer
