    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    William says: "Nice story, extremely well read!"
    Winner of the Audie Award for her rollicking narration of L. A. Meyer's Curse of the Blue Tattoo , Kellgren portrays Jacky Faber as schoolgirl and part-time tavern performer with sass and song.

    From the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak, and tentacled mayhem. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities.

    Kat says: "I wish they'd turn this into a movie!"
    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies took the literary world by storm when it introduced the un-dead to Jane Austen's classic. In this stellar followup, Kellgren again nails a proper English accent and contrasting moments of mashup suspense.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Darinda says: "Love it!"
    Highly acclaimed for its spellbinding writing and twists and turns to the very last page, this fresh take on the Salem witch trials was made even more thrilling by Kellgren's master inflection and pacing.
