by S.J. Morden, Gallowglass Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gallowglass books, The year is 2069, and the earth is in flux. Whole nations are being wiped off the map by climate change. Desperate for new resources, the space race has exploded back into life. Corporations seek ever greater profits off-world. They offer immense rewards to anyone who can claim space's resources in their name. The bounty on a single asteroid rivals the GDP of entire countries, so every trick, legal or not, is used to win. Jack, the scion of a shipping magnate, is desperate to escape earth and joins a team chasing down an asteroid. But the ship he's on is full of desperate people - each one needing the riches claiming the asteroid will bring them, and they're willing to do anything if it means getting there first. Because in Space, there are no prizes for coming second. It's all or nothing: riches beyond measure, or dying alone in the dark. Praise for ONE WAY: 'A blend of classic mystery, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK and Andy Weir's THE MARTIAN, ONE WAY is a science fiction thriller like no other' Waterstones

Gallowglass

by Jennifer Allis Provost, Gallowglass Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gallowglass books, Karina didn’t set out to free the Seelie Queen’s gallowglass. Now she’ll do anything to keep him. After Karina and her brother, Chris’s, lives fall apart in separate yet equally spectacular ways, they leave New York behind and head to the UK. Karina buries herself in research for her doctoral thesis, all the while studiously not thinking about the man who broke her heart, while Chris—who’d been a best-selling author before his ex-fiancée sued him for plagiarism—drinks his way across the British Isles. In Scotland, they visit the grave of Robert Kirk, a seventeenth- century minister who was kidnapped by fairies. No one is more shocked than Karina when a handsome man with a Scottish brogue appears, claiming to be the Robert Kirk of legend. What’s more, he says he spent the last few hundred years as the Gallowglass, the Seelie Queen’s personal assassin. When they’re attacked by demons, Karina understands how dearly the queen wants him back. As Karina and Robert grow closer, Chris’s attempts to drown his sorrows lead him to a pub, and a woman called Sorcha. Chris is instantly smitten with her, so much so he spends days with Sorcha and lies to his sister about his whereabouts. When Chris comes home covered in fey kisses, Karina realizes that the Seelie Queen isn’t just after Robert. Can Karina outsmart the Seelie Queen, or is Robert doomed to forever be the Gallowglass?

The Glasgow Gazette announced the tragic death on 26 June 1947 of their chief crime reporter. Just three weeks before, life was rosy. After a tumultuous winter chasing war criminals across Glasgow, Douglas Brodie was revelling in the quiet life. His relationship with advocate Samantha Campbell was blossoming and he'd put the reins on his impulsiveness. Hope and promise filled the tranquil summer air. A day later, Brodie was arrested for the kidnap and murder of Scotland's top banker. The case against Brodie is watertight: caught with a gun in his hand next to a man with a bullet in the head - from Brodie's own revolver. He has no alibi. No witnesses. Despite Samantha's best efforts, Brodie faces the gallows. Is this the sordid end for a distinguished ex-copper, decorated soldier and man of parts?

Gallowglass

by Susan Tichy, Gallowglass Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gallowglass books, Poetry. Susan Tichy is a poet embedded: with U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, twined together through history; in the landscape disrupted by war, perseverating on a deer killed by a mountain lion, or hearing direction in birdsong; and in the language of war: "gallowglass" is a corruption of a Gaelic word for "mercenary soldier," and dark, ancient ballads appear like forensic evidence. Surrounded by cultural touchstones from Pythagoras to the Grateful Dead, Tichy refuses to let the reader's gaze, or her own, turn from the violence of modern living.

Download Gallowglass books, Gallowglass por Jennifer Allis Provost Karina não pretendeu libertar o vidro de gallow da rainha Seelie. Agora ela fará qualquer coisa para mantê-lo. Gallowglass Depois que a vida de Karina e seu irmão, Chris, desmorona de maneiras separadas, mas igualmente espetaculares, eles deixam Nova York para trás e seguem para o Reino Unido. Karina se enterra na pesquisa de sua tese de doutorado, o tempo todo sem pensar no homem que partiu seu coração, enquanto Chris - que era um autor de best-sellers antes de sua ex-noiva processá-lo por plágio - bebe seu caminho as ilhas britânicas. Na Escócia, eles visitam o túmulo de Robert Kirk, um ministro do século XVII que foi sequestrado por fadas. Ninguém fica mais chocado que Karina quando um homem bonito com sotaque escocês aparece, alegando ser o Robert Kirk da lenda. Além disso, ele diz que passou os últimos cem anos como Gallowglass, o assassino pessoal da rainha Seelie. Quando eles são atacados por demônios, Karina entende o quanto a rainha o quer de volta. À medida que Karina e Robert se aproximam, as tentativas de Chris de afogar suas tristezas o levam a um pub e a uma mulher chamada Sorcha. Chris é instantaneamente apaixonado por ela, tanto que passa dias com Sorcha e mente para sua irmã sobre seu paradeiro. Quando Chris chega em casa coberto de beijos de fadas, Karina percebe que a rainha Seelie não está logo atrás de Robert. Karina pode ser mais esperta que a rainha Seelie ou Robert está condenado a ser para sempre o Gallowglass?
