Morgan Jones has plenty to celebrate. She has moved in with Luca, her birthday is fast approaching, and a friend is about to tie the knot. There is magic in the air in Vanish Valley, literally. Nothing quite like stumbling across a body in the parking lot of the diner to put you off your breakfast though. As much as Morgan loves a challenge, figuring out what happened to this guy seems almost impossible. He was last seen on camera walking into his hotel room, yet a couple of hours later he is lying face down in the dirt on the other side of town. How did he get there? No one seems to know. A family reunion reveals that trouble is brewing and it's down to Morgan to keep her loved ones safe. All she has to do is make it through this week without anyone else getting hurt, but that's easier said than done in a family of witches. And what could be more annoying that one ghostly grandparent? Two. Will anyone get their happy ending? Or are those visions of a burning house a warning of more danger on the horizon? Bait and Witch is the sixth, and final, book in the Wicked Witches of Vanish Valley series.

But that doesn’t matter—the villagers think she is and have staked her out on a hillside as a sacrifice to the local dragon. It’s late, it’s cold, and it’s raining, and Alys can think of only one thing—revenge. But first she’s got to escape, and even if she does, how can one girl possibly take on an entire town alone? Then the dragon arrives—a dragon that could quite possibly be the perfect ally….

This October she's returned to her hometown--where her beloved Aunt Ibby still lives--to interview for a job as a reporter at WICH-TV.

Naomi must find a way to ditch her husband, find the witch, and get a unicorn to send her back home. It shouldn't be that hard to find a virgin, right?

"A fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made." —Neil Gaiman "Gripping, action-packed....The literary equivalent of a Marvel Comics universe." —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times In this epic, internationally bestselling novel from Marlon James, the Man Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History of Seven Killings, myth, fantasy and history merge in the stunning story of a mercenary's quest to find a missing child. Tracker is known far and wide for his skills as a hunter: "He has a nose," people say. Hired to find a mysterious boy who has disappeared, Tracker breaks his own rule of always working alone when he finds himself part of a group assembled to search for the boy. The band is a hodgepodge, full of unusual characters with secrets of their own, including a shape-shifting man-animal known as the Leopard. As Tracker follows the boy's scent, he and the band are set upon by creatures intent on destroying them. As he fights for survival, Tracker starts to wonder: Who, really, is this boy? Why has he been missing for so long? Why do so many people want to keep the boy from being found? And perhaps most important of all: Who is telling the truth, and who is lying? Drawing from African history and mythology and his own rich imagination, Marlon James has written a saga of breathtaking adventure that's also an ambitious, involving read. Defying categorization and full of unforgettable characters, Black Leopard, Red Wolf is both surprising and profound as it explores the fundamentals of truth, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.
