    Dear Reader,

    This is not a book.

    It’s a time machine: Clay and Susan Griffith’s The Shadow Revolution will take you back to a Victorian London where an Avengers-style super-team of wizards, monster hunters, and a teen-girl werewolf battle the forces of darkness. Alan Smale’s Clash of Eagles will transport you to an America that never was, one shaped by a battle between Native Americans and an invading force of ancient Romans. And Harry Turtledove’s Bombs Away will reveal his visionary reimagining of the 1950s after the devastation wrought by a nuclear war that turned the Cold War very hot.

    It’s a new friend. You’ll meet Dave Hooper, a hard-drinking blue-collar dude turned legendary monster slayer who’s one part Jimmy McNulty and one part Vin Diesel, in John Birmingham’s Dave vs. the Monsters. And FitzChivalry Farseer, one of the most beloved characters in fantasy, in Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s Apprentice. And Yarvi, a diabolically clever young king who could match wits with Tyrion Lannister, in Joe Abercrombie’s Half a King.

    It’s a magic mirror, the sort in which you’ll see the world both reflected and transformed.  In an early preview of Sylvain Neuvel’s Sleeping Giants, a little girl discovers a giant metallic hand in a forest—a discovery that changes her life and the world forever. And in a short story from Three Moments of an Explosion, the insanely brilliant China Miéville breaks and remakes reality in strange and beautiful ways.

    It’s also a mystery box bearing three books so full of shadows and surprises that they defy easy description. In Scott Sigler’s Alive, a young woman wakes up amid the darkness of what seems to be a coffin, having no memory of who she is. In C. A. Higgins’s Lightless, a top-secret spaceship conceals a mystery even darker, and more destructive, than the black-hole engine that powers it. And in Jason Hough’s Zero World, a super-spy is sent on a mission that will uncover the future of the universe—and the dark secrets of his own past.

    And that’s just the beginning—you’ll find excerpts from thirty-one new books, from Star Wars, to horror, to science fiction, to fantasy, to the wonderfully uncategorizable.

    Like all books, it’s more than a book: It’s a pathway to experiences you’ll never forget!

    Happy reading,

    Tricia Narwani

    Alive by Scott Sigler

    On sale 7/14/2015

    I open my eyes to darkness. Total darkness. I hear my own breathing, but nothing else. I lift my head . . . it thumps against something solid and unmoving. There is a board right in front of my face. No, not a board . . . a lid.

    A teenage girl awakens to find herself trapped in a coffin. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she got there. Fighting her way free brings little relief—she discovers only a room lined with caskets and a handful of equally mystified survivors. Beyond their room lies a corridor filled with bones and dust, but no people . . . and no answers.

    She knows only one thing about herself—her name, M. Savage, which was engraved on the foot of her coffin—yet she finds herself in charge. She is not the biggest among them, or the boldest, but for some reason the others trust her. Now, if they’re to have any chance, she must get them to trust each other.

    Whatever the truth is, she is determined to find it and confront it. If she has to lead, she will make sure they survive. Maybe there’s a way out, a rational explanation, and a fighting chance against the dangers to come. Or maybe a reality they cannot comprehend lies just beyond the next turn.

    Alive is available in hardcover and ebook on July 14, 2015.

    Chapter One

    A stabbing pain jolts me awake.

    It hits quick but deep, a here-then-gone stinging where my neck meets my shoulder.

    Did something bite me?

    No . . . just a dream. A nightmare, maybe.

    That’s not how I should wake up on my birthday. I’m twelve. I can hardly believe it—I’m twelve, I’m not a little kid anymore. I should get to sleep in, I should get to sleep all day. There should be cake, and my friends, and I shouldn’t have to go to school.


    The thought of that place chases away my excitement. I’m so tired. Feels like I’ve never slept at all. If I missed my alarm, I’ll be late for classes again. Mom will kill me. I don’t want to go. At school, the tooth-girls and the stars always make fun of me. And I shouldn’t be teased on my birthday. I hate school, I hate them, I . . .

    A tingling coolness on my neck, right where I felt that sting. Tickling, spreading . . .

    . . . am I bleeding?

    I open my eyes to darkness. Total darkness. I hear my own breathing, but nothing else. And . . . and I can’t move. Curved bars, cool and rough, hold my wrists by my sides. I roll my hands, trying to slip free, but the bars are so tight they scrape against my skin.


    The word sounds too loud, almost a scream. Something is wrong. M
