Meet Gideon Crew in the first novel in a high-octane new thriller series from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors.

Revenge is sweet and Gideon Crew is about to get a taste.

As a child, Gideon Crew witnessed the brutal murder of his father; a scientist wrongly framed by the US government, during a dramatic hostage crisis. Twenty years later, Gideon finally gets his revenge and fulfils the promise that he made to his mother on her death bed; to bring down the powerful and corrupt man who destroyed his father.

The Crew family name is finally cleared, but Gideon's story is only just beginning. His daredevil act of revenge has not gone unnoticed and he is soon approached by a shadowy figure who offers him the chance of a lifetime. The only catch? He might not have that much lifetime left and the clock is now ticking.

When Shadow received a message that Shylar needed his aid, the master thief and his three companions, Allerum - now an elf swordsman but once a twentieth century American soldier - and the two Dragonmages, Silme and Astryd, immediately set out for Shadow's hometown of Cullinsberg. For Shylar, town madam and high in the thieves' underground, was all the family Shadow had. But Cullinsberg was an armed trap waiting to close on the four adventurers. For they had slain the Chaos Dragon, and in so doing unleashed a force of pure Chaos, a force which then bonded with the single greatest surviving Dragonmage. Driven by Chaos-induced madness, this master of powers far beyond those of Silme and Astryd would now use anyone and any means to take his deadly revenge on those four warriors of Law.

Gods' Magic, Mortal's Doom... In a land where magic is real, where elves and dragons menace the unwary, and where the Norse gods wage a deadly campaign, using mortals as their favourite pawns, Loki, god of deception, and Freyr, god of war, are locked in a battle that could tip the universal balance toward order or eternal chaos. Searching the alternate timeways, Freyr has reached out to snatch Al Larson, twentieth-century American soldier, from the midst of a fire-fight in Vietnam, flinging him through time and space into the body of an elvish warrior to stand against Loki and his sorcerous ally, Bramin. Torn from a world where bullets and grenades are the weapons of choice, and locked into an elvish body on a world where sword and spell are the means of battle, Al must adapt swiftly - or die. For the gods have marked him as their own private battleground, and Al's only chance rests in completing the quest Freyr has set him, a quest that will lead him to the very gates of Hel, where he must save a god - or destroy one!

Authors:
Mickey Zucker Reichert

In 1993, a character took the fantasy world by storm. He was known by countless names and terrifying deeds-thief, magic wielder, swordsman, assassin, adventurer. But chief among those names and the most dangerous of his personae was Nightfall, a man-or perhaps the legendary demon himself-gifted with a power any sorcerer would kill to possess.Now, Nightfall makes his triumphant return in a spellbinding new adventure that sweeps readers from the high courts to the darkest dungeons, from piracy and derring-do at sea to sorcerous encounters and cutthroat attacks in enemy territory. Bound by sorcery and oath to guard and guide Prince Edward on his quest, Nightfall is forced to reveal his true name, Sudian, and to use every trick at his command to keep himself and his idealistic young charge alive. And when Edward suddenly becomes a king, he makes Sudian his advisor. But advisor or not, Sudian cannot dissuade King Edward from a journey to repay a debt of honor to Duke Varsah, an expedition that ends in disaster when all of Edward's guards are slain and the king himself vanishes without a trace. Now Sudian must turn to Duke Varsah for aid. But is he putting himself into the clutches of the very man responsible for Edward's disappearance, a man whose greatest desire is vengeance against Sudian himself?
