Tranquility
by Laurie GardinerSearch for Laurie Gardiner
$14.99
$12.00 new/used

Tranquility belies its name. Behind the nursing home?s serene exterior hides a sinister secret, and support worker Sarah Scott believes she knows what it is. But blowing the whistle would surely mean losing her job, and unemployment is not an option for a young, single mom who is struggling to find balance in her own life while caring for an ailing grandmother. Things come to a head when Edie is admitted to the locked unit. The feisty, Scottish woman does not act as though she has dementia, so why is she there? With the beginnings of a possible romantic relationship and her grandmother's health in rapid decline, Sarah is determined to have Edie released, but her plans are thwarted when Edie risks her freedom and her life to expose Tranquility's dark truth.

BLAZE

A half-breed and a female, Lady Bethany clawed her way to the ranks of the Elven Service's top military elite. They only knew her as their champion against Magic, and not the daughter of a Goddess. She'd expected a long, rewarding life protecting those under her care. But that was before her twin sister returned from exile, addicted to brutal Magic and human sacrifice, twisted inside, and abusing ancient prophecies to overthrow their mother and destroy everything Bethany holds sacred.

The world will burn in flames and innocents will die, unless Bethany can stop it. Unless she can take the life of her own sister.

GRIEF

Thousands are dead. Lady Champion Bethany's Magic tainted sister is slain. Her home lost forever. Yet, Magic survived. Bethany thought she'd given everything in the fight against Magic. She was wrong. When the deaths of those closest to her shake her already crumbled world, she doesn't wilt and die. She still has one thing left to gain even now: Revenge.

Prophecy or no, half-goddess or not, Bethany vows to bring order back to the world by the edge of her blade. No matter who she must defy. No matter what stands in her way. No matter who must die. For what they've done to her, all will pay.

FURY

As Lady Champion, Bethany has always made the big sacrifices, the ones that plague her with nightmares so that others can sleep. Trapped behind enemy lines and powerless to take down the barrier surrounding the Magi army, Bethany struggles to keep herself and her small team of soldiers alive ? no matter the cost.
However, when Apexia?s daughters discover the true source of Magic, Bethany is forced to make the biggest sacrifice imaginable in the name of peace: the death of the Gentle Goddess herself.

Tranquility is a living seismograph of the internal quakes and ruptures of a mother and son trapped within an Oedipal nightmare amidst the suffocating totalitarian embrace of Communist Hungary. Andor Weér, a thirty-six-year-old writer, lives in a cramped apartment with his shut-in mother, Rebeka, who was once among the most celebrated stage actresses in Budapest. Unable to withstand her maniacal tyranny but afraid to leave her alone, their bitter interdependence spirals into a Sartrian hell of hatred, lies, and appeasement. Then Andor meets the beautiful and nurturing Eszter, a woman who seems to have no past, and they fall wildly in love at first sight. With a fulfilling life seemingly within reach for the first time, Andor decides that he is ready to bring Eszter home to meet Mother. Though Bartis?s characters are unrepentantly neurotic and dressed in the blackest humor, his empathy for them is profound. A political farce of the highest ironic order, concluding that "freedom is a condition unsuitable for humans," Tranquility is ultimately, at its splanchnic core, a complex psychodrama turned inside out, revealing with visceral splendor the grotesque notion that there?s nothing funnier than unhappiness.

The Sea of Tranquility: A Novel
by Katja MillaySearch for Katja Millay
$16.00
$3.50 new/used

A School Library Journal Best Book of 2013
An ALA/YALSA Alex Award Winner


I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk.

Two and a half years after an unspeakable tragedy left her a shadow of the girl she once was, Nastya Kashnikov moves to a new town determined to keep her dark past hidden and hold everyone at a distance. But her plans only last so long before she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the one person as isolated as herself: Josh Bennett.

Josh?s story is no secret. Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. When your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space. Everyone except Nastya who won?t go away until she?s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But as the undeniable pull between them intensifies, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she?s been hiding?or if he even wants to.

The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the mira­cle of second chances.
