Chasing a cybercriminal into the pitch-black heart of the Dark Web.

Special Agent Lisa Tanchik is the best at taking down cybercriminals. So when the FBI discovers a multibillion-dollar black market online, she’s tasked with finding the creator and bringing him to justice. Donning one of her many digital disguises, Tanchik goes undercover into the network.

Siege and Sacrifice by Charlie N. Holmberg

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paper Magician Series comes the enthralling climax of a cataclysmic war between monstrous creatures.

Sandis has finally freed herself from her master and his plans to use her as a vessel for the ancient beast Kolosos. But her master has found a new, impossible vessel: Sandis’s brother, Anon—a brother she long thought dead.

Kolosos is ancient, massive, and seemingly unbeatable. Fortunately, Sandis has her own monster—an ethereal fire horse that she can summon at will. In addition, she and Rone may have discovered the secret to defeating Kolosos: ancient lore that details the creation of magic. It could be the key to victory and the key to saving Anon.

The price is steep, and Sandis is willing to pay it. Rone is not, and his attempt to save her only pulls them apart. As both are tested in ways they never expected, Sandis and Rone will need to determine the sacrifices they are willing to make. If their efforts are not enough, their city will fall…just as the ancient city beneath it already has.

Enter for a chance to win one of five signed copies of Happy Campers: 9 Summer Camp Secrets for Raising Kids Who Become Thriving Adults by Audrey Monke.

Why are kids more optimistic, resilient, independent, and competent
after just a few weeks at summer camp?

Why do they feel less depressed, anxious, and disconnected at camp than they do anywhere else?

Why are so many campers heartbroken when it’s time to go home?

Happy Campers introduces a framework of intentional strategies to help parents create the same kind of transformational culture that kids experience at camp. Instead of raising a generation of kids who are overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and unable to function as independent and responsible adults, parents can create an environment at home that promotes the growth of important character traits and social skills that kids need in order to have meaningful and successful lives.

The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo

A dazzling, multigenerational novel in which the four adult daughters of a Chicago couple—still madly in love after 40 years—recklessly ignite old rivalries until a long-buried secret threatens to shatter the lives they've built.

When Marilyn and David Sorenson fall in love in the 70s, they are blithely ignorant of all that's to come. By 2016, their four radically different daughters are each in a state of unrest: Wendy, widowed young, soothes herself with booze and younger men; Violet, a lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mom, battles anxiety when the darkest part of her past resurfaces; Liza, a newly tenured professor, finds herself pregnant with a baby she's not sure she wants; and Grace, the youngest daughter, begins living a lie that no one suspects. Above it all, the daughters share the fear that they will never find a love quite like their parents'.

As the novel moves through the tumultuous year following the arrival of Jonah—given up by one of the daughters in a closed adoption 15 years before—we are shown the rich tapestry of the Sorensons' past: years marred by infidelity and resentment, but also the moments of joy that make everything else worthwhile.

Spanning nearly half a century, Lombardo's debut explores the triumphs and burdens of love, the fraught tethers of parenthood and sisterhood, and the baffling mixture of affection, abhorrence, resistance, and submission we feel for those closet to us.
