From the Publisher

The year is 2018, the place is New World, and the event is the 3rd Annual Fight Tournament. Forty contestants are pitted against each other; ten are expected to be alive at the end of the game...

When 17-year old Alex King and secret crush Mercy Damalie are chosen to represent their district, Alex finds himself stuck between two choices — to accept Mercy's father's offer and escape with them, leaving his own family behind, or to go to the tournament alone.

To keep his widowed mother from losing her only son, and Mercy's father from losing another daughter, Alex is determined to stay alive. But staying alive is only one part of the puzzle. And when he discovers he has an adversary who is determined to make sure he does not live to see another day, things can get sour very quickly...

When Less Plot Is Actually More

AFTER WRITING SEVEN NOVELS AND three works of nonfiction, acclaimed British author Rachel Cusk began to find fiction “fake and embarrassing.” Two years ago, she explained to a British newspaper, “Once you have suffered sufficiently, the idea of making up John and Jane and having them do things together seems utterly ridiculous.” No surprise, then, that her 2014 novel Outline was anything but plot-driven. It was more like a series of observations by a narrator as she traveled to Greece to teach writing. The people she met along the way essentially became the subjects of miniature profiles craf

A Graphic Novel About 17th-Century Philosophy

Dark spots across the sun, men burned at the stake, an all-powerful church that brooks no idea outside its dogma—there is no subject so imbued with drama, intrigue, and fast-paced action as 17th-century Western philosophy. And thus no medium does it justice like the graphic novel. No, really. Heretics!, a graphic novel by Steven and Ben Nadler, introduces readers to what is arguably the most interesting, important, and consequential period in the history of Western philosophy. While respecting recent scholarship on 17th-century thought, the Nadlers sought to make these stories and ideas as ac
