Stygian by Sherrilyn Kenyon (August 28, 2018)

#1 New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon returns with
the newest and highly-anticipated Dark-Hunter® Novel

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s series, including The Dark-Hunters®, The League®, and Chronicles of Nick®, have won countless fans all over the world and propelled her to the top of bestseller lists in multiple countries. Now, readers will be thrilled to return to the world of The Dark-Hunters® with STYGIAN (A Tor Hardcover, eBook, and Macmillan Audio release; On-sale: August 28, 2018), the follow-up to her wildly successful novel Styxx, telling the story of Urian—Styxx’s son.

Born before mankind recorded time, I have lived for thousands of years, believing myself to be something I’m not. Someone I’m not. Lied to and betrayed by gods, Daimons, and Dark-Hunters, I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment a vengeful goddess prematurely ripped me from my mother and planted me into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.

Trained as a slayer and predator, I’ve learned to become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her everything, including her life. Or so I thought. In an act of ultimate betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that Phoebe still lives.

To save her, I will have to trust enemies and friends I’m not sure won’t betray me, including a woman born of an enemy race who hates mine bitterly. And that’s nothing new. I’ve never known whom to trust. Betrayal is my mother’s milk. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. But if I fail in my quest, we will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.

With the epic and addictive STYGIAN, Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us back to the astonishing world of the Dark-Hunters, with a hero misunderstood by many…but most of all by himself. Kenyon’s latest will satisfy her longtime fans who will be treated with some long awaited revelations, but also serves as an entry-point to those new to this gripping series that has captivated millions around the world.

Death Doesn’t Bargain by Sherrilyn Kenyon (May 8, 2018)

#1 New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon returns to the Deadman’s Cross™ series in an epic new pirate fantasy adventure sure to appeal to her millions of Dark-Hunter fans

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s series, including The Dark-Hunters®. The League®, and Chronicles of Nick®, have won fans all over the world and propelled her to the top of bestseller lists in multiple countries. Now, Tor is thrilled to present DEATH DOESN’T BARGAIN: A Deadman’s Cross™ Novel (A Tor Hardcover, eBook, and Macmillan Audio release; On-sale: May 8, 2018), the latest in the Deadman’s Cross™ historical fantasy series filled with pirates, demons, and adventure on the stormy seas.

The Deadmen are back… With DEATH DOESN’T BARGAIN, Kenyon again returns to the pirate ship Sea Witch, where Captain Devyl Bane, and his undead crew have set sail for eternity, searching for forgiveness and salvation. Together, they are humanity’s last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms.

Many demons are beginning to break free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind’s destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn…and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own.

Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine’s hands. He expects no compassion or rescue. Yet the young shipmate Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it’s her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation. To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn’t seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron’s resolve.

DEATH DOESN’T BARGAIN delivers a sweeping epic saga sure to appeal to the millions of Kenyon’s Dark Hunter fans as well as anyone looking for a page-turning and high-paced adventure. It is a tale of passion and loss, emotions that wound and heal…and ultimate redemption.

Bestselling Thriller and Suspense Author Tess Gerritsen Launches New Crowdsourced Campaign for Alzheimer’s Research

Calls on Fans to Help Eclipse the 2013 “War on Alzheimer’s” campaign
and raise over $50,000 to benefit The Scripps Research Institute

Camden, ME New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen is launching her second crowdsourced “War on Alzheimer’s” campaign to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research at The Scripps Research Institute, a leading scientific institute that conducts critical research in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Gerritsen is calling for  Rizzoli & Isles readers, and fellow authors to raise over $50,000 through online donations on the crowdsourcing site GoFundMe.com (http://gofundme.com/WOA-2015).

“Watching my father lose his identity as he struggled with Alzheimer’s is the most devastating experience our family has been through,” said Gerritsen. “This campaign allows us to support the heroic scientists battling this terrifying disease and brings us closer to finding a cure. I truly believe we are almost there.”

The 2013 “War on Alzheimer’s” campaign raised over $50,000 in donations using incentives such as the chance to win naming rights in Gerritsen’s novel “Die Again,” published in December 2014. Gerritsen is again offering a few lucky fans who contribute to this year’s campaign the chance to name characters in her next “Rizzoli & Isles” novel, set for release in 2016.

“The ‘War on Alzheimer’s’ made a welcome contribution towards funding research that aims to one day eradicate this disease,” said James C. Paulson, Ph.D., acting president and CEO of The Scripps Research Institute. “We are thankful for continued commitment the campaign is making in support of our Alzheimer’s research program.”

Gerritsen invites fans to contribute via the campaign’s fundraising page. Contributors can also share stories of their own personal battles with the disease on Gerritsen’s tribute page. Once again, Gerritsen has pledged to match $25,000 to encourage participation and beat the previous campaign total of $50,000.
