Seventeen-year-old Skylar has always been haunted by fleeting yet powerful feelings that something around her has gone wrong. Those impressions have never seemed to reflect anything real, and have only earned her stares and whispers behind her back. But after she meets a mysterious boy named Win, she learns an unsettling truth: we are not alone on Earth. In fact, visitors from beyond the stars are manipulating our planet and the essential fabric of our world; life as we know it is starting to unravel. And Skylar—and her heightened awareness—just may be the key to our salvation.

Skylar never imagined that she’d end up helping a boy from another planet search through Earth’s history for a way to end his people’s secret control over her world. But now that she’s been drawn into Win’s group of rebels, she can’t walk away until their mission is completed and her Earth is free. Whisked to the immense space station that Win and the rest of the Kemyates call home, Skylar escapes suspicion by passing as an Earthing “pet” of Win’s rival, a brash and cocky boy named Jule. The other rebels don’t quite treat her as an equal, but Skylar copes with her homesickness in this alien environment by throwing herself into work on the weapon they must finish assembling to save Earth. Her keen attention to detail and skill with numbers start to earn the Kemyates’ respect. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make her position any less precarious. The Enforcers are still intent on tracking down the rebels, and it becomes clear that someone within the resistance is leaking information to the enemy. With Win and Jule squabbling over her affections, and the entire rebel group growing increasingly suspicious of each other, Skylar feels her chances of saving Earth slipping away. It doesn’t help that she’s falling for Jule despite herself. Determined to see her mission through, she finds herself more and more wrapped up in the lives around her and discovers the truth is far more complicated than she could have expected. Setting Earth free may require her to betray both her heart and the family and friends she left behind.

The riveting conclusion to the Earth & Sky trilogy. The rebels have been disbanded, their plans in ruins. Captured by the Enforcers, Skylar and a small group of Earthlings find themselves herded into the Kemyates' living museum: basically, a human zoo. Skylar's companions are bewildered, terrified, and ignorant of their true situation, and Skylar is afraid to tell them more. Their lives hang on the Kemyates' whim. Those Skylar trusted most have betrayed her. Any move she makes could result in the extinction of her people ... but giving in means giving up any hope of regaining their freedom. Returned home, Win has kept his life only by playing along with the story his former leader has spun to protect the rebels from sanction, but he can't stand knowing Skylar is imprisoned or watching his fellow Kemyates swallow the Council's lies about Earth. Win resolves to bring the truth to the Kemyate public and see the Earthlings finally freed ... though to do so he'll have to set aside caution and openly challenge those who rule his world. But neither Skylar nor Win are prepared when they uncover an even deeper conspiracy of betrayals and deceit--one that could push the uncertain future they're fighting for completely out of reach.

The bestselling author of the groundbreaking novels The Last Light of the Sun, Sailing to Sarantium, and Lord of Emperors, Guy Gavriel Kay is back with a new book, set in a world inspired by the conflicts and dramas of Renaissance Europe. Against this tumultuous backdrop the lives of men and women unfold on the borderlands—where empires and faiths collide. From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request—and possibly to do more—and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman, posing as a doctor’s wife, but sent by Seressa as a spy. The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif—to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming. As these lives entwine, their fates—and those of many others—will hang in the balance, when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world...

One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in Chicago, 1949. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, as he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil--so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty. Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two. This is young Isaac Asimov's first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation series. This is Golden Age SF at its finest. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Roy Malcolm has always been fascinated by space travel. And when he wins a voyage to the Inner Space Station as a game show prize, he’s sure it’s the trip of a lifetime. Before long, Roy is taken in by the young crew—and shares their adventures and lives. One of Arthur C. Clarke’s earliest novels, Islands in the Sky is particularly noteworthy for its description of geostationary communications satellites. While this technology was nonexistent during the writing of this book, it later became commonplace—and Clarke is credited with the first practical descriptions of such technology. This book is compelling not just as a fictional tale, but as an example of the prescient power of Clarke’s vision.
