The Underground City

by H.L. Humes, The Underground City Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Underground City books, Back in print after nearly fifty years–the acclaimed fiction debut of novelist H. L. Humes, co-founder of The Paris Review “Immensely intelligent and energetic, intensely dramatic and melodramatic, heroically overwritten yet sharp, insightful, and precise, The Underground City is an astonishing book by a writer of abundant gifts whose resurrection is long overdue.” –Peter Matthiessen It is the late 1940s and Paris is in turmoil. A man named Dujardin is sentenced to death for treason, sparking general strikes and threats of riots across the city. In the meantime, John Stone, a war-weary American and former secret agent, finds himself being investigated as a suspected Communist. What has brought these two men to their fates? H.L. Humes spins a thrilling account of the French underground during the last years of World War II, and the events that lead to the Dujardin affair. His many memorable characters include Adriane, loved by both Stone and Carnot, a fanatic Communist; Bruce Sheppard, the American ambassador to France, a statesman of vision and compassion; and Solange Récamier, the sophisticated young Parisian widow who finds meaning in trying to salvage Stone’s broken life. The Underground City displays H.L. Humes’s youthful literary skill and a striking capacity for fast-paced narrative. This is a brilliant tour de force. “A major achievement . . . [The Underground City] attains its full stature in poetry and truth. . . . [This is a] many-sided, absorbing novel, written on a grand scale, that holds the reader’s attention from the first to the last of its many pages.” –New York Herald Tribune “Magnificent . . . [The Underground City] has verisimilitude and scope, action and depth of emotion.” –Chicago Tribune “A work of power, maturity and distinction.” –Newsweek

by Mark Ovenden, Underground Cities Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Underground Cities books, With over 60 per cent of the world’s population living in cities, the networks beneath our feet – which keep the cities above moving – are more important than ever before. Yet we never truly see how these amazing feats of engineering work. Just how deep do the tunnels go? Where do the sewers, bunkers and postal trains run? And, how many tunnels are there under our streets? Each featured city presents a ‘skyline of the underground’ through specially commissioned cut-away illustrations and unique cartography. Drawing on geography, cartography and historical oddities, Mark Ovenden explores what our cities look like from the bottom up.

The Underground City

by H.P. Mallory, The Underground City Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Underground City books, Lily Harper narrowly survived her first mission as a Soul Retriever in the first level of the Underground City. After that harrowing trip, she wants nothing more than some downtime, but as with most things involving the afterlife, nothing ever quite works out the way Lily wants it to. Her newest mission will see her traveling to the sewer aqueduct of the Underground City and later, the prison. But, luckily for Lily, she’s got the hunky yet antisocial bladesmith, Tallis Black, by her side. And quite possibly unluckily for her, she’s also got her guardian angel, Bill, who’s up to his old, foul-mouthed antics. Between learning how to wield her sword, personal training with a hot-headed demon, traveling to the Underground City not one but two times and discovering that the leader of the Underground City harbors a curious fascination with her, Lily’s hope was abandoned a long time ago. Reviews: “Man I love reading H. P. Mallory's books. I think the humor is what I like the most. Or, maybe it's the steamy romance. I also love when the main character and her love interest are snarky with each other and H. P. is the queen of snarky romances. When I finish a book and feel sad that the next in the series isn't readily available I know it deserves a five star rating.” ―Paromantasy Reviews ★★★★★ “After reading the newest book in the Lily Harper series, I must say that I am still very impressed with the series. Lily is growing into her role and Bill is as funny as ever. You learn more about my one of my favorite characters, Tallis Black, and you are beginning to understand him a little better. Reading his Scottish accent just makes me melt, that is my favorite accent and could listen to it all day long--reading it is almost the same. This story is a must read for anyone who like adventure and mystery because it is full of both.” ―Amazon Customer ★★★★★ THE UNDERGROUND CITY is the second book in the bestselling Lily Harper Series.
