Jack London draws upon his own experiences of a long Klondike winter to tell the story of two men, complete opposites in almost every way, who break off from their gold-searching party to spend a long winter together in a remote cabin. Thinking it will be easier than pushing on further north with the rest of the party, they fight against the cold, dwindling supplies, endless days of complete darkness, encroaching madness, the ubiquitous "Fear of the North", and ultimately, each other. 1.

James R. Hannibal presents a thrilling adventure through history, complete with mysteries, secret items, codes, and a touch of magic, in this stunning middle grade debut. Thirteen-year-old Jack Buckles is great at finding things. Not just a missing glove or the other sock but things normal people have long given up on ever seeing again. If only he could find his father, who has disappeared in London without a trace. But Jack's father was not who he claimed to be. It turns out that he was a member of a secret society of detectives that has served the crown for centuries - and membership into the Lost Property Office is Jack's inheritance. Now the only way Jack will ever see his father again is if he finds what the nefarious Clockmaker is after: the Ember, which holds a secret that has been kept since the Great Fire of London. Will Jack be able to find the Ember and save his father, or will his talent for finding things fall short? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jacques Roy.

To protect humans from evil yet remain undetected, the Fangborn follow strict rules - but werewolf Jack Parker just keeps breaking them. Failing to disclose his relationship with a Normal could cost him his powers, yet there's something irresistible about waitress Emily Vargas. For one thing, she seems to have no past - at least not one she'll talk about. Jack has kept his affair from the Family but not from his partner, Sully. Lucky for Jack, Sully has more important things to do than report him - like the duo's strange new assignment. An oracle is barricaded in the Tower of London, refusing to turn over a precious sword until Jack and Sully complete an unusual task. If they succeed, the oracle may reveal Emily's secret. But if a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, too much can mean the difference between the future Jack longs for and a living hell. Dana Cameron's prequel novella brings new depth, richness, and intrigue to her acclaimed Fangborn series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deric McNish.
