A sweeping, propulsive family saga set on a romantic and beautiful Italian island, for fans of Captain Corelli's Mandolin and Beautiful Ruins. On the tiny, idyllic island of Castellamare, off the coast of Sicily, lies The House at the Edge of Night, an ancient bar run by the Esposito family. There, over the course of three generations--from the eve of World War One to the aftershocks of the 2008 financial crisis--the Esposito women will fight to hold their family together against the threats that break across their shores. As lush and magical as the island at its centre, The House at the Edge of Night is a story of love and secrets, endurance, loss and, ultimately, triumph. From the Hardcover edition.

The House of Night series from bestselling authors P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

In a frozen Arctic wasteland, an ancient legend lies dormant under three thousand years of snow and ice, while half a world away a Christmas Eve Nor’easter pummels Eerie Cove, Massachusetts. Joshua ‘Doc’ Lavine is an accomplished Boston neurosurgeon but he faces a career-ending lawsuit and the threat of criminal charges. No one feels sorry for him because his surgical skills are second only to his misanthropy, and while news of Aunt Sadie’s death should be a welcome diversion, it revives memories of ancient rituals and court documents that were sealed when Doc was thirteen. A fresh body has been found inside the house Sadie bequeathed to Doc, and when FBI Agent Quinn Masterson arrives in Eerie Cove asking questions, Doc realizes that his time is running out. Once determined never to return to that house, Doc now knows he has no choice. Trapped inside the house on Christmas Eve, the truth will be revealed: a clandestine organization linked to Nazi Germany; an ancient legend frozen in time; pagan graveyard rituals performed in the still of night; and the truth about Doc’s horrifying past.
