Zohar, an ancient land of sand and splendor, rallies for its last stand. The genocidal Aelarian Empire sends its legions to destroy the small desert kingdom. King Epher and his band of rebels stand against a fire they cannot extinguish. And it is Claudia herself, once Epher's paramour, who leads the legions tasked with killing him. Across the sea, in the Empire's capital, a cruel new emperor has seized power. Atalia Sela, once the leader of a barbarian horde, now fights in the arena as a gladiator. Ofeer Sela, once a concubine and now a rebel, seeks to free her sister. Meanwhile, Seneca and Valentina, the children of fallen dynasties, still battle for the city, and their inevitable clash draws near. Around the Encircled Sea, warlords, rebels, and legionaries battle for dominance. Sometimes it seems like the fire will always burn. Yet heroes still rise, fighting for a dream of peace, for memories of solace, and for lingering echoes of light.

In an ancient world of sand and splendor, an empire awakens.Aelar, a mighty nation, spreads its tentacles. Its oared galleys storm the seas, and the waters run red with blood. Its legionaries swarm desert ruins, smiting barbarian hordes. Its crosses line the roadsides, displaying the dying flesh of heroes.The Aelarian Empire rises. The old world falls.The powerful Sela family has avoided the empire until now. The family has carved out an idyllic life between sea and desert, ruling a bustling port, a thriving city, and lush vineyards. Yet when an imperial fleet arrives in their harbor, everything the Sela family has built threatens to collapse.Sweeping from snowy forests to cruel deserts, from bazaars of wonder to fields of war, here is a tale of legionaries and lepers, priests and paupers, kings and crows. Here a girl travels across endless dunes, seeking magic; a cruel prince struggles to claim a bloodstained throne; and a young soldier fights to hold back an overwhelming host. As the empire spreads, the fate of the Sela family-and of all civilization-stands upon a knife's edge, for under the storm of war, even the greatest nations are but kingdoms of sand.

The true events following a graphic artist as she moves from Northern California to Southern California in pursuit of a dream, finding herself falling in love with a start-up company that celebrates children's artwork while giving back to schools. Against her knowledge, she is arriving at the company on the brink of its collapse, and she experiences an emotional journey as she witnesses its inevitable destruction from the inside out. Her uniquely imaginative interpretation of a life-altering experience is made especially painful by being an artist who feels very deeply. Using poetic metaphors, she explores her relationship with her own memories, knowing they are selective and romanticized but embracing them as a bittersweet gift. It is a story of beauty, of grief, of an unfulfilled dream, and of the transient nature of existence.

An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

Shifting Sands is a collection of short stories about relationships — not only between men and women, but between families, extended families and even cultures. Most of the stories are rooted in the culture and traditions of the Nairs of Kerala, but any reader can identify with these well-told tales, because the building blocks of all relationships are universal. Some of the life situations central to the stories may not be acknowledged, much less talked about, even in this ‘liberal’ age, but Radha Venuprasad discusses them frankly and with sensitivity. All the stories revolve around strong people who are not afraid to be themselves. There is Renu, who decided to keep her love child. But at what price? There is Shiva, who, despite his commitment to his wife of many years and their children, found himself drawn towards and taking responsibility for a beleaguered young woman. Then there is Dhruva, an affluent, gifted doctor with a secret, Aruna, for whom the stars foretold a violent end, and Ammu, Markanday and Seema, whose lives intermingle and turn conventions upside-down. Read also about Anita, whose tragic past intrudes into her idyllic present, about Minikutty, a chip off the old block, and how Gopala Menon unwittingly sets off a chain of events that shake the very foundations of his ancient family when he lets a young writer live in a house on his sprawling premises. Written in simple language, Shifting Sands is an easy read, and is sure to engage the interest of anyone who picks it up.

"A gripping time-slip suspense story." —The Bookseller Recently divorced, Anna Fox decides to cheer herself up by retracing a Nile cruise her great-great-grandmother, Louisa, made in the mid-nineteenth century. Anna carries with her two of Louisa's possessions—an ancient Egyptian scent bottle and an illustrated diary of the original cruise, a diary that hasn't been read in a hundred years. As she follows in Louisa's footsteps, Anna discovers in the diary a wonderful love story from the Victorian past—and the chilling, more distant secret of the little glass bottle. Meanwhile, two men on the cruise are developing an unfriendly rivalry for Anna's attention—and a disturbing interest in Louisa's things. Most frightening of all, Anna finds herself the victim of a threat that grows in strength and darkness as the dramatic stories from three different eras intertwine along the mysterious waters of the Nile. What Readers are Saying "The images she creates are fantastically interwoven in a mysterious romance. I couldn't stop reading." "Great! Chilling and full of betrayal, revenge, and heat." "All Barbara Erskine's books have the excitement, detail, slight historical slant, and twists which make the reader look over their shoulder." "I found myself gripped by the story of Anna and her ancestor, Louisa. The two stories are skillfully threaded together with a magical blend of the stunning descriptions of Egypt and the love stories that enfold the two women." "It is a mystery that is unfolding before your very eyes. A real page-turner."
