Perdition by Ann Aguirre


Original Title: Perdition

WELCOME TO HELL The prison ship Perdition, a floating city where the Conglomerate’s most dangerous criminals are confined for life, orbits endlessly around a barren asteroid. Life inside is even more bleak. Hailed as the Dread Queen, inmate Dresdemona “Dred” Devos controls one of Perdition’s six territories, bordered on both sides by would-be kings eager to challenge her claim. Keeping them at bay requires constant vigilance, as well as a steady influx of new recruits to replace the fallen. Survival is a constant battle, and death is the only escape. Of the newest convicts, only one is worth Dred’s attention. The mercenary Jael, with his deadly gaze and attitude, may be the most dangerous criminal onboard. His combat skill could give her the edge she needs, if he doesn't betray her first. Unfortunately, that's what he does best. Winning Jael’s allegiance will be a challenge, but failure could be worse than death… FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

Perdition by R. Jean Reid


Original Title: Perdition

What happens when a killer who can’t be caught threatens to kill your children next? A town and a mother are forced to confront their worst fears in this hair-raising suspense novel from the author of Roots of Murder. Newly widowed mother Nell McGraw struggles with her outsider status as she runs the newspaper founded by her husband’s grandfather. But a paper can’t turn away from the stories that others ignore, like the body of a child found in the Gulf. At first it seems tragic, a child lost because of carelessness. Then another child goes missing. Disgusted by the turf war between the sheriff and the police chief, Nell barely manages to keep her journalistic distance . . . until the killer contacts her, telling her that her children could be next. Now Nell must match wits with a psychopath who taunts her, daring her and the police to catch him before he can kill again. Praise: "Part mystery, part thriller, part social commentary, and all impossible to put down."—Kirkus Reviews

The Gurs Haggadah by Belah Guṭerman


Original Title: The Gurs Haggadah

How do you live a 'normal' life in a Concentration Camp? The Gurs Camp (technically called a 'detention' camp) in south-western France was the testing ground for thousands of Jews attempting to pit their belief in God and themselves against the inhumanity of war. Here, in 1941, the inmates decided to hold a Seder on Passover, the Holiday of Freedom, in order to declare their own freedom from the terror of oppression. Replete with photographs, and featuring a facsimile of the actual Haggadah recreated from memory and used in the camp, this book sheds light on a little known camp where, despite the stresses and sub-human conditions, the people enriched their own lives by organising both religious and cultural activities while suffering under the yoke of Nazi brutality.

Children Of Perdition by Tim Hashaw


Original Title: Children Of Perdition

Some oppressed groups fought with guns, some fought in court, some exercised civil disobedience; the Melungeons, however, fought by telling folktales. Whites and blacks gave the name "children of perdition" to mixed Americans during the 300 years that marriage between whites and nonwhites was outlawed. Mixed communities ranked socially below communities of freed slaves although they had lighter skin. To escape persecution caused by the stigma of having African blood, these groups invented fantastic stories of their origins, known generally as "lost colony" legends. From the founding of America, through the American Revolution, the Civil War and World War II, the author documents the histories of several related mixed communities that began in Virginia in 1619 and still exist today, and shows how they responded to racism over four centuries. Conflicts led to imprisonment, whippings, slavery, lynching, gun battles, forced sterilization, and exile--but they survived. America's view of mixing became increasingly intolerant and led to a twentieth-century scheme to forcibly exile U.S. citizens, with as little as ?one drop? of black blood, to Africa even though their ancestors arrived before the Mayflower. Evidence documents the collaboration between American race purists and leading Nazi Germans who perpetrated the Holocaust. The author examines theories of ethnic purity and ethnic superiority, and reveals how mixed people responded to "pure race" myths with origin myths of their own as Nazi sympa-thizers in state and federal government segregated mixed Americans, citing the myth of Aryan supremacy. Finally, Children of Perdition explains why many Americans view mixing as unnatural and shows how mixed people continue to confront the Jim Crow "one drop" standard today.

The Heights Of Perdition by C. S. Johnson


Original Title: The Heights Of Perdition

When survival is all that matters, does truth still make a difference? "I'm your enemy," Aerie told him. "There. It's that simple. Now, I'd appreciate it if you would stop with the pleasantries and start torturing me. I'll be much happier when I am dead." "I can understand your thoughts on the matter," he said, obviously smothering a laugh, "but I'd love for you to give me the chance to change your mind." Frustration hit her again. Was he teasing her? Or worse - was he telling her the truth? There is nothing Aeris St. Cloud wants more than to win her father's love and the acceptance of her family unit by joining the Military Academy at New Hope. But after she is captured by the fearsome space pirate, Captain Chainsword, Aerie is certain falling in love with her nation's arch enemy is the last possible way to earn their coveted esteem. Driven by vengeance, Exton Shepherd never set out to save anyone. As he circles the war-torn world in his pirated starship, the Perdition, he only sees his father's ghost lurking around every corner and the looming darkness on the horizon. When Aerie unexpectedly tumbles into his life, he finds he cannot trust her, anymore than he can ignore her. But just like the raging war down on Earth, it's tempting to think he can ... When the war ascends to the heights of the Perdition, Aerie's loyalty, and Exton's heart, are put to the test. But will love be enough to save them - and others - from certain destruction? The Heights of Perdition is the first book in the Divine Space Pirates trilogy, a futuristic romance series where family, faith, and freedom are all at risk. Look for Book 2, The Breadth of Creation, as the story - and the war - continues on!
