K.T. Tomb takes an infamous page from history and recreates it as a sweeping adventure thriller and undersea treasure hunt in Ghosts of the Titanic. First, she takes listeners back to 1912 and the maiden voyage. Forbidden Russian lovers - Stephan Ivanovich, a peasant farmer, and Darya Nikita, an aristocrat with a dowry of diamonds - board the Titanic so they can elope and enjoy a life together in America. The plot fast-forwards to a present-day quest and introduces illegal salvage entrepreneurs posing as documentary filmmakers. Captain Jonathan Martin and his hand-picked crew go to the deep-sea waters of Newfoundland, Canada, to try to recover the diamonds for Darya´s descendants, who hired them. Nick and Franco, the divers, conflict with Lisa, the ship´s medic, who´s in charge of training them to use their new technology. They all have their doubts about the presence of James Harper, a wanted criminal, on this ship. In the past, Darya is trying to escape her aristocratic family and an arranged marriage. In the present, using experimental equipment, when divers Nick and Franco see ghosts on the wreck, an unexpected murder mystery unfurls startling secrets of the voyage before the Titanic hit the iceberg. An ancient curse puts an additional paranormal spin on the dark secrets held by the ghosts of the Titanic. And, once awakened, the ghosts aren´t content to stay at the bottom of the ocean. A small team of adventurers risks their very lives - and possible arrest - for a sack of diamonds. Will they succeed in their treasure hunt, or die trying? 1. Language: English.

Tales of the Talking Picture is a fabulous science-fiction fantasy novel about a boy who comes into possession of an old oval portrait of a woman named Rhiannon Tanglewyst, who happens to be a witch who has been trapped within the picture for centuries. Rhiannon tells Matthew and his troublesome girlfriend, a Goth named Christina, fantastical tales from the future and the past; from a grisly and terrifying account of what really happened to the crew of the Mary Celeste, to the strange mission of a secret agent who must face a chilling foe in the guise of a child. The imaginative tales also cover battling wizards, the Titanic, the sinister Sunday King, the heart-warming tale of a boy who befriends a giant alien insect, and a petty crook who makes the mistake of trying on an electronic thinking cap - only to discover the ultimate answer to the universe.

New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory first teamed up to write the Obsidian Trilogy, which was set in a wondrous world filled with magical beings, competing magic systems, and a titanic struggle between good and evil. That world proved so popular with the creators and readers alike that Lackey and Mallory have returned to it again, with The Phoenix Unchained, Book One of The Enduring Flame, the opening volume of a new epic fantasy trilogy. After 1,000 years of peace, much magick has faded from the world. The Elves live far from humankind. There are no High Mages, and Wild Mages are seen only rarely. Bisochim, a powerful Wild Mage, is determined to reintroduce Darkness to the world, believing that it is out of balance. Tiercel, a young Armethalian nobleman, is convinced that High Magick is not just philosophy. He attempts a spell and draws the unwelcome attention of Bisochim. Tiercel survives Bisochim´s attack and begins trying to turn himself into a High Mage. Next in line to be Harbormaster of Armethalieh, Harrier instead finds himself regularly saving Tiercel´s life and meeting magickal people and creatures. To Harrier´s dismay, it seems that he must become a hero. In The Phoenix Unchained, Harrier and Tiercel begin a marvelous journey to uncover their destinies. Along the way, they meet a charming female centaur, several snooty Elves, and the most powerful dragon their world has ever known. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dufris.
